Follow Singapore & Taiwan lead on coronavirus

Singapore’s response to the coronavirus is a good template for states/provinces, says Dr. Michael Savage in his podcast of yesterday.

They implemented the standard epidemiological response early on, which includes:

  • vigilance
  • rapid response
  • testing
  • isolating the sick
  • scrupulous tracing of contacts
  • quarantine of the exposed and vulnerable (NOT the entire population)
  • social distancing
  • providing credible information

Mr. Tom Blackwell, National Post, reported how Singapore:

“… followed up SARS by building a national centre for infectious disease, a dedicated 330-bed facility.  (Hmm, what was Canada’s follow-up?)

It started health and temperature screening of passengers from Wuhan on January 3, and of all incoming travellers by the end of that month. Coronavirus tests were rapidly increased to 2,200 a day.

As many as 50 police officers a day are assigned to track down contacts of infected people or find the source of a cluster of infections. “It’s like crime-solving,” said Assistant police superintendent Johnny Lim …”

Their success is evident in that schools, workplaces, stores and restaurants are open with restrictions.

Do you know how your municipality spends YOUR money?

Do they employ an indispensable “Chief Resilience Officer?”

Is the flavour-of-the-month consultant—”Climate Change Consultant” contracted to preach how we vassals must navigate the final ten to twelve years (give or take) of the earth’s existence?

Note the predictable career path of the above:  the former progresses to the later.

Coronavirus Alert:  the above, and others in the political class, will no doubt search vigorously for the link between the virus and “climate change.”

Brantford Police former headquarters ok for homeless

Once upon a time the former Brantford Police headquarters on Greenwich St. was “sinking.”  Hence the push in the 80s for a new headquarters; the latest incarnation is at Wayne Gretzky Parkway and Elgin St. (no reports of sinking, yet).

Isn’t it fascinating that:

  • the building on Greenwich St. has not vanished into the terraferma
  • it is now suitable and safe for use as a homeless shelter

Hmm, could it be that the clarion call for the next incarnation of police HQ has something to do with that great motivator of people-kind (with deference to Chairman Trudeau)envy?

Consider who’s getting new digs:

Brant County OPP detachment (strange how the current HQ in Paris fell into disrepair)

Brantford City Hall (can’t seem to find the architect’s provisions for an addition to the Wellington St. location)

Brantford Fire Station No.2 (also cursed with that sinking phenomenon)

Never forget the public sector’s fetish for everything new and shiny.

If the City of Brantford wants to do something for there police service, let the police do there job unfettered by the perpetually aggrieved.  And, let them get back to the basics of policing, like walking the beat!

Teachers’ union tantrum prevention

Time for public sector unions to stop holding taxpayers hostage!

Time for Ontario teachers to drag their union leadership of the following organizations:

Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO)

Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO)

Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA)

Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF)

into the 21st century.

 

Give these individuals two lessons:

  1. employer-employee relationship
  2. Ontario debt clock

At the end of the lessons quiz them on what they have learned.  If they fail, it’s time to say:  Thank you for your service; see-yah!

So, so, so, conversation, conversation, conversation …

Run, don’t walk from anyone who:

  • starts every or every other sentence with “so”
  • says “conversation” in every or every other sentence

New Year’s Baby Fanfare: Anyone check with a vet?

Marriage is passé, uncool.

See the social engineers drool.

Having children within a marriage is passé, uncool.

See the social engineers drool.

So Newstainment Media, come midnight next New Year’s Eve ask hospitals AND vets to see what New Year’s Baby assumes the rule.

See the social engineers drool.

They proclaim it makes no difference cause we’re all part of the animal pool.

Yikes!  How can this be?  Think about it for a nanosecond of the time you spend on the hockey pool.

Holy fabric of society Batman; maybe it’s time to stop being a fool.

Before that fabric completely unravels, maybe it’s time to make marriage cool.

Maybe it’s time to make having children within a marriage cool.

See why social engineers’ thinking is minuscule?

School employees detention TBA

We await confirmation of a one-hour detention for all school employees in Ontario.  We understand that they will be required to take turns writing the following on the blackboard or flip chart:

I love working in a school.

It’s a privilege to work in a school.

My employer is the school board and, by extension, the Ministry of Education.

I understand that the ministry “is responsible for government policy, funding, curriculum planning and direction in all levels of public education.”

I understand that the school board carries out the directives of the ministry.

As my employer, the school board prescribes the job that I have been hired to do.

As an employee, I am expected to do the job that I was hired to do.

If I as an employee do not agree with, or like the job I am expected to do, I have the right to quit that job.

If I as an employee do not perform the job that I am expected to do, the board has the right to fire me.

The union I may belong to is not my employer.

I am well compensated for my job.

The relative job security I have is part of my compensation.

I understand that the Government of Ontario is working to reduce the Ontario debt burden of $353,743,000,000.00.

It is the duty of the board, and therefore me, to respect the taxpayer by assisting Ontario to reduce this debt burden.

It is the duty of the board, and therefore me, to respect the taxpayer by working within the confines of limited budgets.

I love working in a school.

It’s a privilege to work in a school.

Federal election ’19 postmortum

1. It’s outrageous that the west knew how the east voted before the west voted!  Election results should be sealed until ALL polling stations have CLOSED.  (Can you hear that?  It’s the hysterics from the newstainment media.)

2. Do you like being used?  Do you  like being distracted?  Do you like being manipulated?  It’s nobody’s business who you vote for, or why so don’t tell political parties, pollsters or the newstainment media.  Stand up for a One Poll Election.  That means pollsters get a holiday during the official campaign.

3.  Three-term limit and then it’s Sayonara.  Thanks for your service.  The “Hazel McCallion Syndrome” (The Honourable Ralph Goodale is a good federal example) does not bolster our democracy.

4.  La Belle Province is in love with itself (and its precious Bloc Québécois) and gee why notVive le Québec libre?”  This love must be matched by a new party system that joins The Bloc in the House of Commons (we’re seeing similar action in the Senate these days):

  • Canada West
  • Canada Mid-West
  • Canada Central
  • Canada East
  • Canada Northwest
  • Canada Northeast

Lovers of one region join lovers of another region for democractic bliss!

5.  If all else fails it’s time scrap our tired, bloated and abused system for the likes of governance à la the spirit of the Isle of Eigg:  a revolving volunteer governing committee of citizens (aged 18+) from all walks of life.

“Vive le Canada libre!”

Federal election ’19 primer: Tyranny

Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.
