No need to cancel Halloween, says Dr. Tam — as long as everyone follows the rules #cdnpoli 

It's a compliment. It means you're good at explaining things in the same way @JohnKingCNN  is good at explaining the incoming U.S. election results right now.

When it was built, with its retractable roof, SkyDome was supposed to be a stadium for the ages. Apparently that meant 31 years. It opened on June 3, 1989. Rained poured down on the opening night performers because they kept the roof open.

Retired Gen. Rick Hiller, who is leading Ontario’s vaccine task force, says the province will receive 2.4 million doses during the first 3 months of 2021. The province may need to set up vaccination centres as it is unsure of logistics on the transportation of doses. #onpoli 

Call it the @joe_warmington  effect: Liberals to soon require air travellers to test negative for COVID-19 before arrival #cdnpoli 

Amazon Is Booting Parler Off Of Its Web Hosting Service: Amazon's suspension of Parler's account means that unless it can find another host, once the ban takes effect on Sunday Parler will go offline. via @JohnPaczkowski 


In what moral universe does @janephilpott  resign from the Justin Trudeau cabinet on a point of principle -- because she could no longer in good conscience tolerate the actions of the PM and the PMO in Lavscam -- while @Bill_Morneau  still has his job this morning? #cdnpoli

Quebec company with no factory in Canada lands 10-yr, $133M sole-sourced federal deal to make PPE: Medicom has since received a $4M loan from Québec gov't to build a new factory in Montréal & the contractor hired was SNC-Lavalin Group #cdnpoli  #quepoli

Kanada, circa 2020: Shut down railway system for political protest. No fine. Block traffic at major intersections during rush hour for environmental protest, no fine. In jail for criminal offences? Get out of jail free. Walk too close to your neighbour. $1,000 fine. #cdnpoli 

Health Minister Patty Hajdu's four weekend flights in April and May from Ottawa to her home/constituency in Thunder Bay and back cost taxpayers $73,220 while she told Canadians to avoid all unnecessary travel: | Blacklock's Reporter#cdnpoli 

So, under the WE Charity/Trudeau gov't student grant program, teachers get $12,000 to recruit 70 students paid up to $5,000 to 'volunteer' until the $900 million from taxpayers runs out. Doesn't this resemble a Ponzi scheme, albeit a legal one, with taxpayers as patsies? #cdnpoli 

This is bad. Very bad. The Lancet has made one of the biggest retractions in modern history. How could this happen? The now retracted paper halted hydroxychloroquine trials. Studies like this determine how people live or die tomorrow
