$1,000,000,000.00 (that’s right, BILLION!) for 3000 “affordable” housing units? Really?

No, Mr. Phillips.....drunk dialing your ex is a “mistake”.
Yours was a premeditated and carefully executed scheme.

Mr. Ford is equally pathetic in being outraged only after this debacle became public.

Actually 2020 was fairly good from my perspective.
Had the highways pretty much to myself for a good chunk of the year.

Do I believe we’ll all be vaccinated by September?
Sure.
Only the year is in question.

More fun with math!

Population of Canada- 37.5 million
Number of Covid vaccines administered to date- 1,000,000
Elapsed time since first vaccine administered- 7.5 weeks

That’s nominally 134,000 shots / week

Let’s assume the required doses are actually available.

34 weeks remaining until the end of September
Let’s say only one half of all Canadians decide to get vaccinated
That means we need to be vaccinating at a rate of slightly more than 550,000 doses / week starting NOW.
Don’t forget that the current vaccines require 2 doses, so we really need to be sticking 1.1 million arms /week.

Or, if you’d prefer, at our current rate it will be more than 2.5 years just to get a single dose into half of the population.

But aren’t we ramping up our capacity?
Sure, but that’s a LOT of ramping up and when it inevitably doesn’t happen all the known and as yet unknown variants will be blamed.

Still think we’ll git ‘er done by September?

90 days between shots?? On who's authority???
Certainly not the manufacturers.
CDC doesn’t back it up either.
I haven’t found a single source that does.
Enlighten me....please.

I do not own a military style assault rifle, and probably never will. That being said, a quick inquiry at Statscan shows that HANDGUNS, not ARs, are the real issue.
Liberal MPs, your jobs are in jeopardy over this issue.


I’m self moderating and moving further posts on this topic to politics where it belongs.

Looks like I’m going to be wrong on this and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m beginning to believe the anti-vaxers are merely a bunch of pussys trying to justify their irrational fear of needles.

The Coffee Shop. Appropriate.
Contactless delivery as I see it:
Place your order. While you drive up to the window, someone inside has grabbed your cup and filled it, palmed the lid onto it, and passed it to another person, who either passes you the CC terminal that has been handled by half the county’s’ population or accepts your cash and hands you change that has been in at least as many hands. Finally that person grabs your cup by the edges of the lid, places it in a tray, and passes your “contactless” coffee to you.

Just sayin’.

I accepted the risks and got my 1st vaccine…AZ.
It was my contribution to our “path to green” which means getting rid of these fukkin’ masks.

I accepted the risks again and got my 2nd vaccine…AZ again.
My contribution again. Shoot me up with battery acid. Don’t care. We’re going green and getting rid of these fukkin’ masks.

Now you want to retract and continue enforcing the use of masks?
