What a pathetic display. Pathetic. This government’s entire animating goal now is to escape and avoid blame for what it has overseen.
Their focus on avoiding or pushing back against the press has been a constant, too
On Fullerton fleeting, after the LTC report landed Friday, thestar.com/news/gta/2021/… do remember the government delayed document delivery, and then after dumping hundreds of thousands of documents late, the government refused to extend the deadline for the report

Just gonna go ahead and tweet this again: the borders could be better. Blaming Ontario's third wave on the borders is a joke. thestar.com/opinion/star-c…

I think NACI is in a tough spot, by the way. The data is moving around, and Health Canada already approved the vaccine, so risk messaging changes with all that.

"The problem is not in our schools, it is in our community." Well, how did that happen
So, schools back to virtual after the April break. This was utterly inevitable, and comes a day the minister of education wrote a letter to parents saying schools would be open unless public health units made the call

Doug Ford said folks, try to be positive. Great, sure. Except it’s that kind of malignantly magical childlike thinking that got us here. thestar.com/opinion/star-c…
No joke: an ORNGE helicopter just flew over my house.
