I am a teacher and also immunocompromised. I got my first shot this week. It was neither being a teacher, nor having an autoimmune disease that qualified me to be vaccinated. My autoimmune condition p

Double dosed!  If anyone needs me, I'll be at IGF waiting for the season to start.

Not disagreeing with you but what would you have had the government do differently? Just a question. Please be specific. What should the government have done? What would the challenges be to doing so, how could they have mitigated that?

Not picking on you in particular, I challenge all to answer those questions. I'm seeing a lot of people saying things should have been done different but I see crickets as to what that should have been.

The government under Pallister ought to have mandated a severe crackdown with harsh penalties a month ago when this was predicted. Pallister did not want to alienate his base of fundamentalists and right-wingers. So he and the provincial Tories prayed for a miracle and here we are.

These pastors should all be thrown in jail. Worthless POS.

Ever wonder why these "faith healers" are not in hospitals casting out the demons and healing people left and right?

Remind me to never set foot in a church the rest of my life.

New restrictions coming at 4pm today. I'm expecting a stay at home order and stores will only be able to sell essential items, like November to January. We'll see.

 

No hope the kids are going back to class this year, which is a shame.

The burning sensation you experience as you walk inside would be reminder enough, you devil you 😉

I'll say the one thing this pandemic has done has changed my politics. I used to be a dyed in the wool conservative. That has gone by the wind. I still don't like governments in my life trying to tell me what's best but my ******* God, the governments we have in Manitoba, Alberta & Ontario are absolutely dreadful. Palliser is basically teelling Manitobans that it's their fault they got sick & FFS they have to do better. In Alberta, we have a provncial government spooked & running by the seat of its pants. Kenney is now seen as a weak & ineffectual leader to be trusted by no one.  I voted for him. However, I cannot & never will support politicians like him again.

Policed by who exactly? The gestapo? Maybe we ask Putin for help. Get real...restrictions only work if people are willing...prohibition taught us that.

Trying to control a virus is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. There is no government anywhere having a complete success with it.  Canada was especially f'ed with a late vaccine rollout.

After my year and a half living down there, it's all the same to me. You get south of the #1 and it's all bible thumping crazy people. Even Morden, that likes to think they're the "normal" one......nah.....it's all crazy down there.

Well I live here in Steinbach so might have a better picture of what it’s like. You make it out like it’s free for all with no one wearing mask and getting vaccinated. I have yet to see anyone the places I go not wear masks or making big deal. Also 95% of the people in know are getting vaccinated. I am also not religious person so not jaded by that view point.

No, conservatives cut, They destroy. The education system. The health care system. Infrastructure. Anything. That is their mantra, Cut, cut, destroy. I should know. I voted for doing that **** for decades.
