John Horgan built his brand on Geoff Meggs' 'The Bonnie Henry Mom & Pop Show', with Bonnie playing BC's mom to John's paternalistic 50s throwback dad. John was told to stand near Bonnie from time to time and smile and wave. It worked for a time & ended badly.

A 🧵:
Who wrote Bonnie's script?

Why has Bonnie's script been joined at the hip to Deena Hinshaw's in Alberta?

Why have BC & Alberta been at variance with the WHO, the USCDC and global scientific consensus ever since we stopped banging our pots and pans together every night at 7 pm?
#HenryAndHinshaw both adhere to Dr. John Conly's opinions. See mark 1:17:09 in this June 22, 2022 webinar for John's shout out and his accolades for Hinshaw & Henry while he disparages critical scientists and his peers with ad hominem attacks.…
See mark 1:30:00 to learn why John doesn't think you need masks. Or 2nd boosters. Or access to Paxlovid or oyher therapeutics. John explains his support for infecting you, me and the rest of society on purpose to 'strengthen our immune systems'.
John's a proponent of the disproven notion of "immunity debt". He thinks getting infected is good for you & your immune system is just a little rusty from lack of use while overly sheltered during the pandemic. John doesn't believe you should be able to choose to not be infected.
John is also an arrogant a**hat, and in my opinion, may be viewed as misogynistic if it was indeed him shutting down world-renowned physicist Lidia Morawska at the WHO's April 3, 2020 emergency meeting.…
Lidia Morawska was honoured by Time Magazine in October 2021 for her integrity, the quality of her science, and fighting for scientific truth to be known because she and many other scientists understand how to save lives & prevent a mass disabling event.…
John was not honoured in such a way. John's misunderstandings derive from his arrogance & devaluation of multidisciplinary approaches to knowledge & problem-solving. eg. Refusing to work with & respect engineers, aerosol scientists, historians, atmospheric physicists, chemists...
Meanwhile, you have the Koch Foundation doing what they do when they find a break between scientists. It's a replay of tobacco, asbestos, cancer, & climate change denial tactics resulting in the Great Barringron Declaration aka the 'Urgency of Normal'.
Populism makes strange bedfollows. John Horgan and Jason Kenney aligned their @BCNDPCaucus & @UCPCaucus with the 'Merchants of Doubts' selling the Koch Foundation's propganda to a worn out public desperate to believe 2019 will come back again.…
For 2 years, Alberta and BC have vied for the title 'Florida North' with BC ultimately taking the win - though it begs the question whether it may be more accurate to refer to Florida as 'British Columbia South'.…
While Horgan ultimately generated a worse collapse of the healthcare system, a higher excess death rate, worse opacity in governance & data, greater ongoing marginalization & repeated victimization of vulnerable minorities, Kenney had some success too.
Horgan & Kenney are finally exiting the stage. Their leadership races will be held this fall during what may be the worst wave to date with new party leaders possibly facing a double pandemic of COVID & Monkeypox by the end of the year.
It's doubtful Horgan or Kenney have put any effort or time into understanding pandemic science, the history of #DropletDogma vs #COVIDisAirborne, its implications for an equitable society and #ableism, or the tunnel vision of health specialists like John Conly.
Canada needs western leadership that brings a multidisciplinary independent science advisory group to the public health and governance table. We need to take stand, and demand rationale leadership. The Koch Foundation isn't building a society that is better for us, but we can.

Less than 2.5 hours of exposure while wearing an N99 was enough for my partner to be infected by super transmissible Omicron.

Public Health turned Politicians have left us on our own & there is no magic bullet. Individuals can only mitigate a moderate amount of risk.
Learning to "Live with COVID" is a goal that requires a collective response. In this so called Urgency of Normal, as people lose their resilience & choose denial over reality, collective action has been shunned and vilified, including by many psychologists & healthcare providers.
This is far from normal. This is an #UrgencyofEquity. Individuals must now learn how to make & accept a reasonable risk calculus of unreasonable harms every day while the non-resilient people around them can decrease that risk by an order of magnitude, but choose their #freedumb.

CO2 monitors are a transformational tool in the PPE kit people need for accurate, real-time risk mitigation. I carry one everywhere now. They should be in every classroom when schools re-open for f2f learning. As with all PPE, there must be equitable access. A (20)22 tweet 🧵:
There are a variety of CO2 monitors to choose from. For accuracy, you want one with an NDIR sensor. They cost a bit more and are worth it. There are pros and cons to different models.
Factors to consider in selection:
1. NDIR CO2 sensor
2. $
3. Accuracy
4. Size & weight
5. Durability
6. Battery power
7. Portability
8. App & Connectivity
9. Historical data
10. Screen
11. Other sensors of interest
12. Your usage needs and patterns
