    got shot #1 of Pfizer today. I can feel it working. My 5G microchip game is already way stronger and I have this weird impulse to go mow Bill Gates' lawn (he lives across the lake from me)

  2. Yeah but why cover the CFL when they can stuff a mic in Jeff ONeils face and let him verbally fellate the Leafs?

I removed all air fresheners from the vehicle and double-checked my registration status (Daunte Wright), and ensured my license plates were visible (Lt. Caron Nazario). I will be careful to follow all traffic rules (Philando Castille), signal every turn (Sandra Bland), keep the radio volume low (Jordan Davis), and won't stop at a fast food chain for a meal (Rayshard Brooks). I'm too afraid to pray (Rev. Clementa C. Pickney) so I just hope the car won't break down

    Wife and I just got the shot. I am ecstatic. Astrazeneca from local Pharmacy. The dude at Regent Park Pharmacy was awesome. He walked us through everything, assuaged my Wife's and my own concerns. Told us what to expect and what to watch out for. Darrel is awesome!

  9. I think it's really tough for us to understand what it is like to a black person in the US. Do we have racism in Canada? Of course we do. But people of colour here don't live in terror of having their children pulled over. Milt Stegal's comments a while back made me really think . He said they weren't worried at all about their driving aged kid driving recklessly, drinking and driving, speeding.........All they concentrated on was what to do when you are stopped by the police. They live in fear of it. I dont think we CAN understand it., I dont think we CAN understand what it is like to see wh

    The most vulnerable already have shots, the rest of us are as in need as anyone. Honestly I think it is time to shift the focus away from age groups and get the people out in public their shots. You want schools and businesses and restaurants open you better vaccinate the people working in those places.

    Let's hope so. We have (had) 55,000 AZ vaccines in freezers in Manitoba not being used. Now, they're going to be scooped up very fast. I have a bit of anxiety about skipping in front of some that need it more than I do but the Gov't is enacting a plan to get doses to those communities. I couldn't believe social media yesterday among my peers. It was like Xmas. Some were sharing pics and others were sharing that they had upcoming appointments. It felt good. I sent a message to a co-worker that it was available and she made an appointment for her and her husband. Th

    None. Glad to see you booked one. I believe it was the opposite. Oxford university conducted studies on all ages and in England had a higher proportion of elderly in their studies. As has been said just about all have near 100% efficacy against severe illness or death. Give me whatever jab I can get as soon as I can get it. That is AZ on Monday.

  16. To be fair, those videos exist they just don't go viral. We are a rage addicted society. I was talking about this on the weekend with some family. Everyone is so scared on every side. It's the fearful policing the afraid. No trust on either side. Add in a lack of training and things aren't going to end well more often then they should.

    I'd rather the medical community be forthright with the public than not, regardless of the certainty; science is ever evolving, anyway. And let's be honest: skeptics and deniers are by and large lost causes.

    Wearing a Leafs jersey does that. If Matthews had scored that goal, TSN would have an hour long documentary about it and would also have it at #1 on every top ten list for a month.

He’s a mean, violent linebacker who moves really well and will instantly be a core special teams player for Winnipeg.

    Yeah its about time all teachers across the province get vaccinated. Hopefully with Johnson and Johnson shot coming that is single does it will make getting vaccinated easier for some of our more vulnerable populations like the homeless.

    there was too much mixed-messaging regarding AZ vaxx. It's just ridiculous. For what the vaccine is trying to accomplish, it's every bit as good as the others. This narrative of AZ somehow being a "lesser" vaxx is crazy. Don't get caught up in all the efficacy numbers...

    It's no surprise that there is vaccine hesitancy. Most of that can be probably attributed to the absolute garbage being regurgitated on social media. Most people of even average intelligence know that social media is a swamp land of misinformation, unfortunately half the people are of below average intelligence and gobble up every meme and bit of ridiculousness with fervor as if it were the truth.

  30. I have a friend who is retired rcmp. its not straightforward, what a person will do, how they will react, in some of these situations. although american police are clearly right out of control. imagine being an iraqi under American occupation. I have a theory that a lot of this is American military experiences abroad, now being brought home and inflicted on black and brown in America.

    I totally expect to continue to get Covid vaccine shots. Vaccine boosts will be needed. The only reason to hold this info back is the wacko anti-vaxxer talking heads who would rather die a slow painful Covid death than get a needle in their arm.

    Hmm I don't think this is accurate, I think the 6 months thing is because that is how long it has been studied. As in still good after 6 months. Probably see still effective at 12 months when they have studied these for a year.

I'm not talking about during a sentencing process/court case etc. I'm talking about after all of that. The criminal has been caught, the criminal has been sentenced....then as a society/charity/non profit/police force/social programs etc etc. You can examine what lead to the crime.

    There's also a story about people in Manitoba who were together during a pandemic. During the first lockdown, most people bought in and the restrictions worked. During second the lockdown, people began to realize: That travel was not allowed unless you were flying. That it was mostly big box retailers who were allowed to stay open. I mean, come on, Dollorama sells very few essentials. I could go on all day... This and other exceptions led to people seeking out loopholes for themselves. In the third lockdown - like it or not - there's going to be more people

  42. It's not about taking their background into account when considering punishment...ITS NOT ABOUT EXCUSES. ITS NOT ABOUT PUNISHMENT. ITS ABOUT PREVENTION. No one thinks they shouldn't be punished, they should be. It's understanding how they got to a point where they murder, and how we can put things in place/fix things/change things etc etc so the next person who is in a similar situation won't make that choice. In terms of imprisonment, our society whether you like it or not very rarely sends someone to a true life in prison. Which means basically everyone who goes to prison, is

I used to hear about police shootings at traffic stops and despite the horror I would always on the back of my white privileged mind say “yeah, but why did the black man not just listen to police commands and do as he was told. Should not have escalated to that level, BUT if the victim had just complied then we would not be here”. Then came cell video from bystanders. Seeing cops plant guns on the dead perp after police shootings to match their story that the suspect engaged in a high risk situation that forced them to shoot. Told myself “Ok, I have to concede that there are bad cops out th

    Couldn't agree with this more. Last year when they shut my business down, I was all for the good of the people. Being in the event industry I'm completely fed up. Enough is enough. Get the vaccines out. I'm beyond frustrated. I understand people's concerns but most of the people saying we need to tighten up or continue with heavy restrictions are the same people's financial well being isn't being wrecked beyond belief. Sorry. I know this may come across as inconsiderate but this ain't ebola. 8 billion people and 3 million deaths world wide and those numbers are likely

Maybe we should... oh I dont know- lock it down and impose stricter regulations? I swear we are letting that 2-4 week grace period of "lessons learned" from our neighbours go to complete waste...
