Journalists really need to resist calling them what they call themselves. This serves them only as a casual observer will be totally confused by this.
Like if these guys are all nurses, that's like 100% of the male nursing staff in Toronto.
Coooool just saw this shared on FB from someone who says they're all first responders.
Because obviously these men could not be nurses.

I think it's a funny thing that's happening in the minds of some people who have likely never thought about how folks like Galen Weston, Doug Ford or the Rogers family should be denied medical care due to their misdeeds but have no problem jumping to that for Bruce from the Bruce
You think it sucks that nurses have to care for people who are anti-vax? Wait to hear about forced overtime and infection controls within Canada's hospital system.
Like, yeah, if you have destroyed Canada's healthcare system, you don't deserve to have access to a bed when the time comes. Except that isn't how any of this works.

I finished the graph!

Here is where Canada is on vaccination -- drilled into by health authority, or province/territory if the region wasn't available at the COVID vaccine tracker.

Yellow people are not adequately vaccinated, though does include one dose. Dark blue - kids u14. For the raw data, DM me. No...
It took me more time figuring out Saskatchewan's new health authorities than it did doing half the provinces -- so a good reminder that amalgamation without proper data preservation amounts to data suppression!

Otherwise, hope you enjoy.
If you're on a smart phone, open the image and turn your phone on its side.

Ce ne vraiment pas nécessaire. Quand on a besoin quelqu'un de re-encadrer le débattre, GND decide à caractériser une question juste, poser par une femme racialisé, comme le paternalisme?

On est loin d'où on doit être.
C'est obligatoire pour QS de rappeler du monde que oui, loi 21 est discriminatoire et oui, il y a plusieurs contre sans défendre les gens qui sont pour.
Mais bon. Une autre piège que GND a été prise dedans.

Here is a little thread on vaccine passports and how, again, media is getting this story wrong.

Journalists should not be asking "passports yes/no" but instead what it means for a government to institute a passport system (and what it means for a gov't to *not* institute one)
I'm speaking only for Canada right now -- this gets more difficult when you bring in the global perspective. But in Canada, if a government announces a vaccine passport, they de facto have the moral responsibility to ensure that a vaccination program is as accessible as possible.
You can't attend concerts or play sports? Fine -- call a line and get your vaccine then through a home visit or visit to the venue of the event/activity.

You can't eat at restaurants? Fine -- vaccine buses are ready to meet you before dinner.

I'm going to do a live take two on how this article is propaganda now that I have a different paywall bypass and I can read the updated version. The version I read before was short and only referenced a random tweet and CFIB opinions.…
And because it's live and I am extremely humble, if I am wrong, I will identify this throughout. Let's see...
1. Better start -- no reference to a tweet from a random journalist. But oop! Leading with the guy that owns Toronto's most boring chain of pubs the Firkin and who thinks -- wait for it! --- CRB is killing his employee base.

CERB is so necessary for some that losing it caused suicidal thoughts in many and this is what the Toronto Star comes up with?

Fuck off with this shit. Seriously. It's offensive.
In researching my book, I came across no evidence at all that CERB is causing a hiring crisis. I can't wait to read this and see what the CFIB says.
And the frame -- that EI "spoils" workers -- @RosaJSaba are you trying to be insulting to people who are desperate or did you just not think about this too much?
