There’s blame to go around

September 2020

OK, while it’s debatable as to whether the “Bad Orange Man” south of the border was wrong in downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic in February, are the usual smug Canadian America-haters feeling the same way about their lord and saviour Justin Trudeau? It appears that Trudeau and Health Minister Patty Hadju were well aware of the global pandemic back in January. Of course, we already knew that Hadju and Dr. Theresa Tam were downplaying the pandemic back then, but now we have Hadju admitting in interviews with Global News and CTV News that she knew back on January 2.

Earlier this year, Hadju and Tam were insisting the virus was low-risk, while adding the scolding tone of insisting that we didn’t need masks and that closing the border wouldn’t work and it was racist to insist we must close our borders.

Of course, we should also remember things like the Liberals also shutting down the Global Public Health Intelligence Network in May 2019; shipping 16 tons of PPE to China in February, even after they let they let Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Emergency Stockpile System deplete to pretty much nothing (you had ONE job!) and ignoring warnings from Canada’s military intelligence branch, which received warnings from their Five Eyes Intelligence partners of the impending pandemic and to restrict travel and close the borders, even after other countries had done just that.
