Everyone should have access to healthcare.

People really can be made to do anything against their own interests

Govt doesn't care about your mounting health damage from Covid infections & reinfections; it won't be paying for your declining health. You will, via Telus

When you don't wear a mask indoors, it's dark sci-fi.
As someone who works in communication and strategy, I'm actually in awe of the success of BC's communication campaigns on Covid, which involved taking a garden variety PHO and beatifying her into a saint to pull off a larger policy of few measures & public openness to infection.
Despite international press detailing the grimness of Sweden's model of sacrificing many so society could stay "open," Henry openly stated she was following the "Swedish model but with fewer deaths" (we later learned BC was simply under-counting deaths) & BCers fell into line.

Did you know @TELUS @TELUSsupport @TELUSBusiness, if you have an amount owing and have not been able to pay since covid or before but needed your “essential service” for your kids to stay in school and stay connected.....
You only have one or two months to pay back the ENTIRE amount of your account on top of still paying your monthly bill or your services will be cancelled and your account will be forwarded to collections.
I am currently in correspondence with a family of eight, who have 6 kids in school at the moment. They have a Telus bill of only $1000.00 and they received a disconnection notice via email.
