What the hell are the media people thinking? One of the most critical questions to ask any candidate in this federal election is “What is your vaccine status? We have certainly had enough BS from Doug Ford in Ontario. We hardly need the same from the federal conservatives.
If there was one predominant need in Canada, it is for a feeling of normalcy. This is a time of year for making love in the moonlight. It is a time for barbeques and walks in the parks. If politicians want to run around making foolish promises, let them. They are part of the Canadian scenery.
But we have to get ourselves out of this pandemic. If that means we bridge someone’s supposedly God-given right to refuse to be vaccinated, so be it. Our survival on this poor planet depends on people being able to learn, to work, to play, to create a safe and secure world for our children and theirs.
Anyone who is healthy and able to be vaccinated should be. Nobody has the right to spread sickness and death. If they insist, let them go to Florida and die a gruesome death with the rest of the idiots down there. Those of us who got in line for our vaccines have earned the tight to a safer environment—no anti-vaxxers need interfere.
You would think that any candidate asking to participate in their party’s campaign would be asked the simple question: Have you been vaccinated for the coronavirus? And don’t you dare send an anti-vaxxer to my door to ask for my vote. That would be the height of stupidity.
And the human rights people can also get stuffed. I have a right to protect myself from any variants of covid. What do I have to do? Should I post a sign saying ‘Knock at your own risk?’ Or do I stipulate that anti-vaxxers will be shot on sight? I hope that it would be legal to shoot those who are challenging our right to a safe and secure society.
And I really don’t care if the conservatives are telling their anti-vaxxer candidates to get tested every day. Who is checking to make sure they are doing what they are told?
