Despite what Mr. Kenney would have us believe, many of the states that have opened are doing just as well as the states who have remained more cautious and kept their restrictions in place. The Case fatality rate from Covid-19 is higher in the United States in general so lets not use that as our justification to stay closed Premier. In fact, Utah is open and has a 0.52% CFR – so clearly you hand selected the data you referenced.
Do you have hope that as we approach summer with the vaccination rollout ramping up that lockdowns will end? Well, don’t because the Prime Minister of Canada says that if we meet all of his demands in the fight against Covid-19 we can only expect a “slightly better summer.”
According to a Rhodium Group report released on May 6th, 2021 China polluted more in 2019 than all developing nations combined. The report says that “China’s emissions were less than a quarter of developed country emissions in 1990, but over the past three decades have more than tripled, reaching over 14 gigatons of CO2-equivalent in 2019.”
Detailed in the report from Premier Andrew Furey’s Economic Recovery Team report is an extensive list of recommendations to reduce the debt load of the province and many of the solutions mean higher taxes for Newfoundlanders. “The most urgent task assigned by the Premier was to review the financial state of the province and recommend actions to improve the fiscal situation.”
If people aren’t motivated to adhere to the masking policy the Ontario Science table recommends manipulating you by doing things like reminding you that you “could miss out on” things like having a “better summer” and by building social norms by using “educational posters” at the entrance and exits of community buildings.
Hallway medicine unfortunately has become somewhat of a normative situation in Canadian healthcare -except now the narrative has changed to blame Covid. Whereas before we would treat patients in overflow and not make such a big fuss about it (don’t want to draw attention to the problem) now politicians happily point out the problem because they can blame Covid.
We have allowed our politicians to create a moral panic. The most important thing in our society is now Covid. All other matters of public concern now pale in comparison to Covid. Overrun hospitals have been an ongoing issue for many years and now the fault is being squarely placed on the shoulders of “selfish Canadians” who dare speak out against an ever involving narrative that has continually shifted the goalposts.

The Premier said, “I want all of you to know that I will always try to what’s right and that means if we get something wrong or make a mistake we’ll fix it as soon as we can like we did this past weekend.”
The statement is a harrowing one for all Canadians, it says that “the Court granted the Government’s request that Pastor Coates not be permitted to challenge the constitutional validity of Dr. Deena Hinshaw’s orders at the trial.
The government will not be required to produce scientific evidence in support of Dr. Hinshaw’s orders.”
