1-Latest #COVID19BC Testing graph from @CDCofBC Nov. 20th Surveillance report. It shows how they can continue the fear propaganda to "justify" violating #BChumanrightsCode & #Charterrights through meaningless "orders." #psychologicalwarfare #COVIDpsyop
2-I worked in #childprotection in #BC. A major, valid complaint from "clients" of #MCFD was that the goal posts kept getting changed arbitrarily. I didn't practice like that, but saw it. Its actually a strategy of #psychologicalwarfare #institutionalabuse & #torture. #COVIDpsyop
3-I've been blocked by some of "#COVIDZero" "advocates." This campaign is population-based #psychologicalwarfare bc this is impossible to achieve. #COVID19 is a cold/flu virus that's endemic now. Moving the goal posts sets us all up. They just keep moving them. #torture #MKUltra

I'm so sorry to my colleagues in Minnesota. I am so fearful of when (not if) these headlines will be in Canadian papers, likely MB and AB first.
Don't know what else to say or do.

This described the situation in #COVID19MB on Nov 17, 2020:โ€ฆ
And this is the situation in AB today. The exact upper limit of beds total & for #COVID19 is apparently a moving target but Dr Hinshaw has always said there are 70 allocated ICU beds as ICU beds are needed for other things too (heart attacks, trauma etc). 56 ICU today.

Questions now. Why are travel restrictions not an order, Dr. Henry says she doesn't believe there needs to be an order. Says it would be too hard to enforce. "When we had these requirements earlier this year people took them to heart." #bcpoli #COVID19BC
On metrics to determine if measures are successful, Dr. Henry says a lot of things will be watched including rolling average for cases. "We are watching our ability to find people quickly and that has been challenged." #bcpoli #COVID19BC
Dr, Henry says they are watching very closely to see if they can link cases. When they can't link cases, that is a high concern for public health. #bcpoli #COVID19BC

Thoughts on this Orwellian doublespeak. Fact Check 1: "people are asking when we will see masks mandated [...] The answer is that they already are. The mandate to use masks [...] is a cornerstone of businesses' and organizations' #COVID19BC safety plans". They aren't. It isn't.1/
The only person who can make a #MaskMandate is the PHO, & as you read here, she won't.
Fact Check 2: "Our orders also mandate that businesses and workplaces must have #COVID19 safety plans in place. These *should include* mask wearing." Wait, not *must include*? Not a mandate. 2/
Fact Check 3, same quote: One very important workplace doesn't have COVID-19 safety plans including masks or distancing: #bced SCHOOLS. Total 625 school #covid19 exposures as of this pm at 373 schools, 126 multiples. Sec students only req mask outside cohort, elem not at all. 3/

As British Columbians wait with varying degrees of trepidation for the live #covid19bc briefing from @BCgov today at 3 p.m., your periodic reminder from me that: 1. We should not be limited to only two live briefs per week on Mon and Thurs; 1/
2. We should have access to full transcripts of all #covid19bc briefs, *including* q&a from journos, in the interests of maximum #transparency & #accountability; 3. We should have a *full* & specific accounting of all #bced school exposure events in daily live/written briefs; 2/
4. We should have access to #covid19bc case counts on a daily basis every day of the week. We should not have to wait until Monday to hear about the 3 24-hour periods elapsed since Friday, or Tuesday after a long weekend to hear about 4 24-hour periods; 3/

THREAD: My 94-year-old mother pays over $4,000 per month for a one-bedroom apt. in a private, for profit, assisted living building in BC. The apt. is cleaned once a week. This comprises only vacuuming, cleaning bathroom, and kitchen sink. Staff is allocated 15 minutes ...2
