Might be helpful contextualization if you were to put some of the last few items in context of Statistics Canada demographic information for Nova Scotia. I suspect that the age and gender statistics more or less line up with provincial age/sex demographics, although it still is disproportionately affecting Halifax / Central region.
Dave Lane from SMU has interesting daily graphs on his Facebook page too …
Regardless of what you think of our federal and provincial incumbents, what an opportunity to demonstrate leadership – any level of leadership – in a time of crisis. A major challenge for politicians in the “end of history” is demonstrating to the electorate that you’re even necessary. I’m quite sure that our Prime Minister and most of our premiers will get re-elected at least once, not because they handled this crisis so much better than their opposition would have, but because they got to be in charge in a time when leadership actually matters.
McNeil is a petty potentate. His impatient authoritarian leanings are obvious but at least he isn’t Jared Kushner.
A lot of people like authoritarianism. You’re free to think of me as a bootlicker or whatever – I’m not – but I really appreciate our premier – although he should be more considerate of the marginalized – telling us to stay the blazes home. I did my weekly shopping trip yesterday, and I saw plenty of people who were not buying 7 days worth of food for even one person. Sure, some people are broke and can’t buy 7 days worth of food, but most people are not that broke.
The Queen’s speech was great – this crisis is an opportunity to find meaning in the way you live. If you restrict yourself to one grocery trip a week, at the end of that week, you might find yourself eating less than desirable food. Your ancestors, in comparison, faced the very real threat of starving in springtime before the current year’s crops yielded anything.
Well I guess this is the day we just tune out Strang and NcNeil. They have been OK so far but now we are seeing overreach. Whether it is just thru exhaustion or annoyance because the numbers are not coming down as they hoped, they are losing their objectivity. Hopefully we will not become a police state as a result. The South Koreans are probably just laughing at us because probably all you need to do is wear a mask in public (any kind of mask), test a lot, and stop large gatherings and the numbers will come down. This is why idiots like Trump are elected – overreach by sensible people..
Not sure what McNeil wants us to do more of. The Canadian average of active cases is 78.6%; NS is 78.8%. Canadian average of recoveries is 19.8%; we are 21.2%. Canadian average of fatalities is 1.7%; we are 0.
We’re exactly in the middle of the pack. The only way we can improve is if we start healing faster, but that has nothing to do with policing black kids.
