Covid-19 And The Triumph of Team Canada

For months the Cons and their shabby NDP and Bloc stooges attacked Justin Trudeau like a pack of rabid hyenas, in a desperate effort to try to undermine Team Canada's war on Covid-19.

So they could blame Trudeau for all the lives lost.

They were aided and abetted by our foul Con media, that smeared our decent prime minister over and over again, with one fake scandal after the other.

With the exception of the American owned National Post no media outlet smeared Trudeau more, and did more damage to Team Canada, than did the Globe and Mail.

So this must really have hurt.


Having to report that nearly nine in ten Canadians are giving Trudeau and Team Canada a huge vote of confidence.

Nearly nine in 10 Canadians believe the country has done a good job so far in dealing with COVID-19, according to a new study of pandemic response views in 14 advanced economies. 

And giving Canada a rating better than most countries... 


Second only to Australia and Denmark, tied with Germany, and much much better than the United States.

“Just 11 per cent of Canadians feel their country has done a bad job dealing with the outbreak,” she said.

“In the U.S., it is just 47 per cent of Americans who say the U.S. has done a good job and 52 per cent of Americans believe that their country has done a bad job with the coronavirus thus far,” she said.

It's something to be proud about, but it's these numbers that I find most encouraging:

Those who identify on the political left in Canada voiced slightly more positive feelings, Ms. Devlin added, noting 89 per cent said they believed Canada has done a good job compared to 82 per cent on the political right.

For they make the Cons and their political and media stooges look like they're living on some other planet, Planet Hate. And are completely out of touch with even their own supporters.

For even those supporters know that our great frontline workers risked their lives to beat back the virus, and that it was Trudeau who inspired them, and held this country together.

You know, it cannot be easy to lead the fight against a murderous virus, while also having to fight off political enemies seeking to destroy you... 

And being too decent, or too polite, or too Canadian to ever reply in kind.

It cannot be easy, but Trudeau has never complained, just kept on doing his job.

And hopefully when the next election arrives, Canadians will reward him with a majority he so richly deserves...

The problem I think is that the positive coverage isn't picked up by the trashy infotainment networks where most casual folks get their "news". Because there was also this

Canadian dollar forges ahead vs. U.S. dollar, after Canada's GDP surges in June

and this

Here's what CERB and everything else that was shot out of the Trudeau government's money cannon did for Canadian households: Canada hits record savings rate thanks in part to massive state aid

But if all you had on TV was the Conservative Bullshit Channel, CTV (Conservative Television) or Goebbels News (none of which actually report news of their own, they just feed at the trough of whatever the garbage rags put in print), you'd think nothing was going on in the country but Skippy demanding a McCarthy inquiry into Margaret Trudeau's passbook, and Leslyn Lewis' snapping back at the Liberals and defending her equally bigoted so-con kamikaze colleague. Canada is doing remarkably well, but the daily top story from the propaganda echo chamber headlines "Trudeau bad because reasons."

Trudeau has done a phenomenal job of managing Covid and the economy, and the gold-standard professionals like Pew and Bloomberg know it. The ham-handed amateurs back home, meanwhile, are loathe to give him credit. He could find a cure for cancer and they'd run a lede that he put thousands of oncologists out of work. I wouldn't wipe my ass with the Globe even if there was another TP shortage.

When he and Freeland table the throne speech and the 21st century New Deal calling for green investments and a focus on women's reentry and advancement in the workforce, they're going to shit so many bricks they could build a border wall. It's shaping up to be everything the petrosexual men in cheap suits hate: environmental investment and a "she-covery," and that's why they're so desperate to undermine the Liberals and Trudeau in particular. They never saw him as one of "their own." They see him as both a class and gender traitor, and thus a threat, which is why they diminish, feminize and smear-attack him. They know damn well what they're doing going after his mother.

Freeland being his equitable partner in this is causing them mini strokes. Just look at how many virulent attacks they've run against their own former colleague since she was appointed: she's underqualified, she doesn't have "Bay Street experience," now it's that she'll be lost without Tiff Macklem to hold her little hand, teach her big-boy math and give her an allowance for her pretty pink purse. They've Ivankafied her. Fact of the matter is Freeland scares them and so does Trudeau. They're overdosing on ED pills and having cardiac conniptions because their "coin wads" are going limp.

Hopefully they fail miserably at their obvious goals of sabotage, and the Liberals, unlike O'Foole and crew, get to "Take Canada Forward." You'll be well ahead of us (U.S.) and I for one wish you all the best of luck as something we Statesiders ought to follow.

One thing about Mr. Trudeau is he is able to focus himself and his government on the task at hand without letting the unimportant things distract him. He has done it since the 2015 election.

It's unfortunate the G&M article fails to mention that 66% of Canadians feel the country is more united whereas only 23% of Americans do according to the CTV article link I posted yesterday. It clearly shows that JT's actions and behavior has united this country like never before while the Cons continue to try and tear us apart. They've done nothing to help in the pandemic response other than being an impediment to it. They need to be reminded that they lost the election and because of their continued, inherently divisive actions, do not deserve a seat at the adult table. They should be made to wear dunce caps(MAGA will do) until they grow up and perhaps become useful. They should look at how well Dougy, Chrystia and Justin have worked together across party lines with Dougy heaping praise on them on numerous occasions. That alone should keep the heads popping at the CPC as they spit and sputter their way into irrelevance.

NP shouldn't have run a column about Covid being spread by singular spit bullets, like fillings falling out of Letterman's 1st show mouth.

I think we need improved nanotechnologies pertaining to endocytosis of pathogens such as Covid, as well as for iron particles. London has found Covid breaks vessel strings that prevent platelets from clumping. I don't think we have good enough enforcement of good researcher numbers, to now attempt to genetically engineer new strings on us mid-disease. I do think we should use nanotechnology and weaker biomimetics to make novel phagocytes or otherwise "poison" containers, that can be safely streamed out without causing bladder disease. I also think we need to use MPI to pick good leaders and come together for good decisions. Iron oxide is toxic, so it needs to be a more fragile magnet and/or we need a better way of eliminating from our bodies. The easy system is to select health advisors who do well in wild disease simulations. The next pandemic might have an initial r0 of 8 and be 20% lethal, unless we consume synthetic endocytosis particles beforehand. Synthetic biology and/or gene therapy on the other hand might produce disease effects that can't be engulfed as a cure.

Hi Jackie...As I’ve said before, the Cons are only throwing their monkey pellets in every direction is because they are devoid of any ideas of their own. All they can do is try to destroy, and that won’t get them anywhere. But we should definitely destroy them ☠️

Simon said...

Hi Ottlib...You’re right. Justin Trudeau has been able to show remarkable restraint despite all the Cons have thrown at him. It can’t be easy, and I couldn’t do it, but it is how I expect a Canadian prime minister to behave....

Simon said...

Hi JD....The way Trudeau has managed to keep this country united during the war on Covid is a remarkable achievement. The Cons could never have done the same thing. Their Lord and Master Harper taught them to divide and rule and they are still trying to pit Canadians against each. It’s not what Canada is about, and hopefully history will leave them behind...

Simon said...

Hi Phillip...All of that is fine and very interesting. But right now we need to do what we can until a viable vaccine is available, and that means social distancing and wearing a mask where necessary. My greatest fear is that people are losing their fear of the bug, and are failing to take the proper precautions. And if that continues into the fall we’ll be in real trouble...
