At the end of the day, I feel like an old man trapped in a young man’s body. I’m yelling at the walls here! Canadians can’t seem to hold their public officials accountable these days. How many ethics violations is that now Prime Minister Trudeau? Canadians need to be adamant about holding our politicians accountable and that starts by being aware of their actions and monitoring their decision-making with that knowledge in mind. I know many are just trying to live their lives and don’t want to be “bothered with politics.” The issue is, if you don’t bother with politics – politics starts to bother you.

I’ll be short and to the point – the Delta variant is the real-life equivalent of the man behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz. Instead of a man behind a curtain, however, we have politicians merging their interests with the field of medicine. Not that Canada isn’t familiar with political interests merging where they shouldn’t (insert media bailout here).
