and this one is kinda sweet; as in CPC Ontario MP David Sweet traveling over the holiday period to the U.S.; Sweet who was the chair of the HOC Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics, no less.

clearly, he's had a good patrician run and is taking leave with an announcement that he intends to retire from federal politics while offering up the ole chestnut of wanting to spend more time with the fam!  ;D

O’Toole would rather prisoners spread COVID to the community than they get the vaccine if they’re deemed to be high risk spreaders.

The federal government’s COVID-19 vaccination effort includes a plan to immunize high-risk prisoners in federal prisons — people who are old or sick. The initial wave of vaccinations will reach 600 inmates, about four per cent of the prison population.

O’Toole was predictably outraged, and equally predictably took to Twitter.

“Not one criminal should be vaccinated ahead of any vulnerable Canadian or frontline health worker,” he harrumphed.

In one sentence, O’Toole evoked both the callousness of the Stephen Harper government and its unwillingness to leave such decisions to experts who actually make them based on evidence, rather than political calculation.

In this case, public health officials looked at the evidence and decided that, based on the goals of saving lives and preventing the spread of COVID-19, some prisoners should be included in early vaccination efforts.

That’s not surprising. Prisons are crowded, inmates and guards are in close proximity around the clock, and many inmates are unhealthy.

O’Toole’s position is, basically, tough. If they die, they die.

The problem with the Conservative’s stance on this is that ignores all science and advice from medical experts on the best way to stop the spread of COVID in favour of feeding their “tough-on-crime” base.

Conservative MPs ....    they can’t get out of their own fuckin’ way.   MANY party members seem to want the violence we see in the USofA, it seems.

The Conservative Party is using the exact same rhetoric about “rigging elections” as Trump.   Are they this fuckin’ daft?

Justin Trudeau is rigging the next election in his favour

The next step is to claim the results don’t count, or the election was stolen, when the Conservatives lose next time there’s an election.

404 error that say 'Justin Trudeau promised you something and it's not here'

They're literally blaming Trudeau for information they took off their own website

Wow....  now they’re hiding their harmful, Trump-like rhetoric...  I guess they think that accusing Trudeau of taking down their garbage is somehow funny?
