The Covid tug-of-war continues

All year we’ve been pulled in two directions, and now it’s the feds throttling down international flights and banning cruise ships for another year, while Quebec gleefully prepares to reopen retail and hair salons next week and starts chivvying students back into CEGEPs and universities.

And we’re promised vaccinations, while news stories talk about reductions in vaccine availability, and while undertakers strain to cope with the number of excess deaths. Public health worries about the new virus variants, but François Legault seems determined to give the new viruses a chance.

Trash radio host Jeff Fillion (Quebec City and Twitter) tried to use a photo from Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital to “prove” that news stories about overwhelmed hospital facilities were all a lie. He’s been debunked.
