Prime minister forced to scramble with COVID-19 outbreak
By Dale Ferrel
As I sat down to write this, I found myself in a strange and unusual place. Things like petty politics, government flaws, frailties and imperfections seemed judicious compared to the stark reality of the COVID-19 upheaval!
I magnanimously believe that there is good and bad to every impropriety we must endure. I hope the total lack of preparedness by our governments all will finally provoke them into a proper strategic state of mind.
It is mandatory that much more funding, and larger contingencies, now and in the future for health care, and policing are a must, but don’t hold your breath.
Every other like, fearsome instability in the past obviously never caused them to do one iota to cease their dissipation or correct their adverse behaviour!
While obsessive, idealized indiscretions and excursions to save the entire world may have been well meaning, we must put ourselves first. It is fruitless and irrational to believe we can help someone else when we ourselves are a basket case. Only Trudeau could possibly make such assertions or dwell on such bewildering aspirations.
When their coffers were full of abundance, our governments spent when they should have been creating much needed contingencies. Especially to combat their many indiscretions only to stay elected. Now they must answer for their debauchery. How can there always be billions for war instead of proper health care and policing?
The Liberals were excruciatingly slow to react to the covid outbreak. Our Prime Minister was gallivanting about in Africa while his ministers were bumbling in the wilderness. For an entire month, we watched meaningless announcements to wash our hands and stock up on toilet paper.
The buck passing flourished as Canadian impatience and anxiety for some clarity and direction only led to more confusion!
Our severe deficit ballooned out of control while the Liberals did everything in their power to kill billions of dollars in revenue in the oil and gas sector.
Their chaotic over-taxation and radical, zealous over regulation drove major investment from Canada, impelling thousands of vital taxpaying workers and businesses to go bankrupt, or leave our country forever.
It was easy for me to anticipate Trudeau’s answer to his unwillingness to address his inabilities.
Like the person in charge of the demise of the U.S.A., he made the same move he used before to distract us from his oppression’s. He added billions of dollars more to our deficit, throwing money in every direction; but far too little and far too late this time.
This was not his first rodeo or a hallelujah moment. It was the act of a cornered rat, unwilling to admit his machinations and vagaries that undermined our country. Those of us who survive will show our impatience, absolving and neutralizing Trudeau by voting for a government that can save us from further misery. Rest assured; this terrible affliction should and could have been handled better.
