Of all the years for something like this to be Aliens, this was the year…

I love a good mystery, and this one is definitely up there for weirdness factor:

By God though, it better be aliens…

It needs repeating here…

I said this at the beginning of this pandemic:

Conservatism will not get us out of this mess…

Which is why stories like these are so troubling:

Ugh…

Doug, would you like some waffle with those ribs?

If you live in the GTHA, then everyone is aware of Adamson BBQ’s supposed defiant stand against COVID-19 regulations. Restauranteur Adam Skelly, posted to his Instagram his plans to defy Toronto’s lockdown order and open his restaurant for full service yesterday. His justification for defying the rules? Well it’s apparently buried in his Google search history.

Regardless, his actions drew out the crowd you’d suspect. The conspiracy driven and selfish of the GTA. The ones who don’t care about you or I? Or the loved ones we haven’t been able to see because we all have stronger fortitude to see our selves through this pandemic than they do.

The Globe’s Editorial Hits the Nail on the Head

Some nonsense has gone on long enough…

This week’s theme of posting and news seems to be those on the edges of our community, that COVID-19 seems to make easy to discard. On my podcast The 905er, this week we centred our attention on the Ministry of Long Term Care home policies effects on separating families in it’s care.

Are we losing the plot on COVID-19?

This story in the Toronto Star caught my eye:

It’s telling as the province’s colour chart has yet to be widely accepted by physicians or medical professionals in Ontario. I for one can’t make sense of it. In an global pandemic emergency, I should be able to make an easy reference to this and get the information I need to make a decision. Instead, its a matter of cross referencing various data sets and comparisons…and you get the idea.

This Remembrance Day,…a chance for reflection

Remembrance Day is to me a solemn day. Alongside Canada Day, I’d argue it is one of the national holidays that is uniquely part of our collective identity. While Canada Day may be the one reserved for boisterous and outgoing national pride, Remembrance Day has always been it’s counterpoint. Meant for us to reflect on what makes our country great, and the sacrifices generations before us gave up, to give us our country today.

Young and old, new Canadians and multi generational Canadians, conservative and liberal, all come together on Remembrance Day to pay their respects. It’s contemplative about who we were and currently are as a country.
