THE TRUCK CONVOY: WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE

First a correction. Those cages in Walmart are not for customers. Rather they are for employees to be ‘safe’ while checking vaccine passports and IDs of customers. Can we talk?

People do not belong in cages. Not customers and not employees. If everyone is so petrified of getting covid after two or three vaccines then people have been totally brainwashed. Stay home forever because after covid there will be the flu then something else that is contagious and you will never be truly ‘safe’.

Boris Johnson is fighting for his life as Prime Minister of Great Britain…over a few parties he attended during the lockdown there. The daggers are out for him. Say what you want about him, one thing cannot be disputed. He’s a fighter to his last breath and he’s not going down with the fight of his life.

There are a few politicians in our country who could learn a thing or two from him. Erin O’Toole, supposed leader of the conservative party is one who comes to mind. Mr. O’Toole needs to look down and find his kahoonas because right now they are nowhere to be found. Maybe he went swimming in a cold pool and they disappeared.

Justin Trudeau is another one who could learn a few lessons from Johnson. For starters, looking like you just walked out of GQ magazine photo shoot is not what makes you a good leader. And telling your fellow Canadians that you are ‘keeping them safe’ while doing precious little to back that up does little to foster faith in your leadership.

One fact that comes to mind is the appointment of Melanie Joly as Foreign Minister. She’s a foreign minister like we’re a sumo-wrestler. Neither she nor Justin are being taken seriously by other world leaders as per their not getting invited to a serious meeting about what to do with the Ukraine/Russia crisis. At the meeting were European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Polish President Andrzej Duda and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Not Justin or Melanie.

We will know very soon if Johnson survives his leadership revolt. As for Justin, we’re stuck with him for as long as he wants the job.

Now for the massive truck convoy. No doubt you have seen pictures of the 70km and growing convoy. This  endless line of trucks is the physical manifestation of the line from the movie Network: I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.

So here are some questions and answers regarding the convoy:

What’s the point? To show the government that Canadians are done with their loss of freedoms during this pandemic with no rhyme or reason for many of the restrictions.

What about the vaccine mandate for truckers? For the past two years, truckers have been deemed an essential service and they crossed borders when no one else could. Plus they crossed when no one was vaccinated. They were the ones who kept everyone supplied with toilet paper and other ‘essential’ items.

Now that about 80% of the population has been vaccinated the government has decided it’s time to  institute a vaccine mandate for the truckers.  So it was ok for them to come and go when we really needed them but now that things have calmed down somewhat, this is when the government goes after them?

Our take on the real reason this truck convoy is taking hold of Canada? While most of the absurd edicts are provincially mandated, it is Ottawa that people look too for leadership and nobody’s home. People have had it with politicians like Justin, Ford and our emperor legault who issue edicts with no skin in the game.

Close restaurants on December 30 with no warning to these businesses –  after they bought all their liquor and food for the parties the next day? They absorbed the financial losses while the politicians walk away scot free with their full salary.

People are done with deaf politicians. We heard Justin will not be there on Saturday when the thousands of truckers arrive in Ottawa- from every corner of Canada. He will have to stay away a long time because we also heard they are not leaving until the vaccine mandate directed at them is revoked. This is going to be fun to watch. Let’s see who blinks first.

This news just broke: Prince Andrew has formally requested a jury trial to determine the verdict of a sexual abuse lawsuit filed against him in New York federal court, according to a complaint filed earlier today.

This is a very interesting development in the story. The jolly prince has been baying he is innocent all along. Yet, he was seen multiple times the in the company of that dead sleaze-ball Jeffrey Epstein. Plus there are pictures of Andrew with his arm around then 17 year-old Virginia Giuffre.

There are three possible scenarios here: a) Andrew has Alzheimer’s or dementia and can’t remember anything, b) he’s lying or c) she’s lying. Going in front of a jury leaves him open to have to testify as well as being at the mercy of the jury. Let’s bet the Queen is not amused.

We’ll talk…
