It has now been exactly 104 years since Canadian troops assaulted German positions on Vimy Ridge.
The four divisions were fighting together for the first time, they were proud to be all in it together. At last.
And despite suffering more than ten thousand casualties they carried the day, and their victory was a significant milestone in the birth of this nation.
So you can imagine how disgusted I feel when I see that even as we battle the Covid monster threatening the lives of thousands of Canadians, the Cons are making it clear that this time we are NOT all in it together.
For even as our heroic, exhausted frontline workers struggle to save lives and keep hospitals from being swamped.
This is all Erin O'Toole and his Cons are bringing to the battle.
Liberals' slow vaccine rollout = more lockdowns pic.twitter.com/ZNCSDakcRX— Conservative Party (@CPC_HQ) April 8, 2021
Nothing but a feverish desire to put their own country down, and see Team Canada fail.
For grubby political reasons.
Captain Outhouse seems to be panting with excitement at the thought that thousands of deaths might make him prime minister.
Even though our vaccine situation is nowhere near as bad as he claims it is.
Even though it's about to get even better...
Looking ahead, 🇨🇦 will receive:— Anita Anand (@AnitaOakville) April 9, 2021
➡️ 6.4 M doses in April
➡️ 7 M doses in May
➡️ 44 M doses in total by end of June, from approved vaccine suppliers, Pfizer, Moderna & AZ.
We will continue to provide prov. & terr. w/ vaccines for distribution to 🇨🇦. pic.twitter.com/0DaoO0TjTn
And even though thousands of health care workers are working so hard to get as many doses as possible into the arms of the old and the vulnerable...
But if you thought Captain Outhouse was disgusting for dropping his pants and shitting on all that goodness, how about this latest turd he squeezed out this afternoon...
O'Toole is suggesting that restrictions be lifted.
Even though that can only encourage all those Cons who don't believe in any kind of lockdowns, and would turn our country into a burning circle of hell.
For which the Cons would blame Justin Trudeau, instead of the Con premiers who were either too right-wing or too ignorant or both to put human lives before big business...
And even though Trudeau has been the only one to act like a real leader.
But of course we know why the ugly Cons are more interested in trying to destroy him instead of the virus.
They can see the writing on the wall...
But while they are desperate, we know what we must do.
Fight, fight, fight, the deadly enemy and its Con collaborators until the day of victory.
The heroes of Vimy Ridge were all in it together, and we must follow their example.
Until the virus is vanquished and so are the Cons.
And our country is clean and safe at last...
