Bad decision, we need to know what we're up against. Treating the public like mushrooms - sitting in the dark covered with manure - is the wrong approach: Canadian governments refusing to release models or projections of COVID-19 spread: #cdnpoli 

Liberals mum, as Tories, NDP say they would support MP pay freeze (Trudeau/Scheer have already said they will donate their April 1 automatic annual raise this year to charity ) #cdnpoli 

Of course it is, but if governments want to flatten the curve now, making sure people can pay the rent and put food on the table is the best prescription to flatten the curve: Is an 'echo pandemic' of mental illness coming after COVID-19? #cdnpoli

Canada has world's 3rd largest oil reserves & is the 4th largest producer, 5th largest exporter, of natural gas Northern Gateway scrapped Energy East cancelled TransMountain stalled Coastal GasLink stalled Teck oilsands project withdrawn Keystone XL vetoed (by Obama) Madness.

Why doesn't Prime Minister Trudeau just carve off the $82 billion COVID-19 bailout package as a separate bill, which the opposition parties support and could be passed in an hour, and put the contentious stuff in another bill for later debate? How hard is this? #cdnpoli 

Canada, circa 2020: Yes, walking near train tracks is illegal and this fellow taking his kid out for a stroll was in the wrong. But he gets fined and railway blockaders don't? #cdnpoli 

Great! China, whose dictators initially hid COVID-19 from the world, helping to turn it into a pandemic, while arresting the dr who first warned about it before he died from the virus China's gov't denied existed, is sending us some protective clothing
