Make sure they send Doug, not Rob Ford.

/ can't be smoking the vaccine on the ride home

Nah.  He'll never pass the drug test.

Doug Ford has been a complete f*ck-up throughout this crisis. He goes on TV with his weird band of acolytes lined up behind him and makes sympathetic noises, but the government has messed up every single possible public health measure and the distribution of the vaccine.

Here in BC, we have a population of five million folks, and we've gotten 110k vaccines delivered.

One can't help but look over at, say, Alabama, with close to five million folks and 440k vaccines delivered.

It's not completely out of the question for the government, by virtue of the emergency, to do something extraordinary like seize the Pfizer vaccine and sell the recipe to a Canadian company for manufacture. Pfizer better be careful how they fark around. Drug patents are fine and all until the owners start playing at being death panels.

We don't got none. Eagle out front should have told you.

Vaccines are delivered based on contracts entered into months ago. The countries who signed first get the vaccines first.

shiat, good luck. You ever try been a white male American returning over the road to your own God Damned country? Oh, you had a lunch date with your Canadian girlfriend, a likely story, now step out of the church van.

Who's this farking asshole thinking he can just come pick up a box at a farking Fed Ex USA store, then go meet the girls for brunch. This is your nationaly trusted medical czar, Canada? No wonder your free health care sucks like the Maple Leafs, you farking rubes. You don't just go get vaccinations from the corner bodega.

Not yet anyway.

No, this is a mouthbreathing dipshiat who's inexplicably in charge of our most populous province.  He promised idiots cheap beer instead of coherent policies, and the idiots went for it.

It's awfully curious that these shortages coincidentally happened the same week Trumpistan decided the pandemic was a serious problem that needed addressing as quickly as possible.

Keeping in mind that the Americans were entirely willing to engage in acts of piracy to steal masks from their own allies, how much of this "shortage" is due to vaccine being diverted from its proper owners into the hands of American state-sponsored pirates?
 
2021-01-24 12:32:07 AM  
Along I-95 between Wash and Philly, but that's not important now.

Canada's deliveries are coming from Pfizer's European factory. Doug Ford is welcome to try driving there if he thinks it will help.

Inexplicably? .

You forget that the Liberals had gone full Liberal and started governing like they owned the place after their years of electoral successes forgetting their earlier promises and ignoring frequent and loud complaints from voters. The alarm bells should have been ringing when Wynne's approval rating hit around 20% and editorials and pundits suggested that maybe she should step down but why change? She'd stay in and run again and stuck with it up until days before the election when the party finally had to read the writing on the wall and she actually said her supporters should vote for someone else. Well they did and the Liberals suffered a crushing defeat the worst loss in the 160 years of the party's existence.  It wasn't idiots voting for cheap beer that gave Ford the win it was Liberal arrogance and complacency.

Trump only ordered 100 million doses, enough to immunize 50 million people. Pfizer tried to sell us more, but he wouldn't buy. Now we're farked for at least six months

100m of Pfizer.  Another 100m of moderna .  Both now at 200m. With 600m on contract with other companies (like Johnson and Johnson)

Pfizer wants Canada to alter its taxation laws around some of Pfizer's activities. This is blackmail/extortion.

Performance art and the last Ontario election in four links:

Kathleen Wynne remains most unpopular premier in Canada

Kathleen Wynne says she has no plans to resign

Wynne acknowledges election is lost, urges voters to ensure NDP or PC minority

Liberals lose official party status and the leader who left them with seven seats

It helps when you have domestic manufacturing capabilities...which is what we should have been working at developing for the last 9 months at least, along with our own PPE.

It amuses me that Liberals think they are somehow any different. The hatred for Wynne was near universal you don't get your entire party wiped out just because the people that normally don't vote for you didn't vote for you this time around.

Ontario has a pretty large Pharmaceutical Industry.
Void all US Patents on Pharmaceuticals and allow our industry to go gangbusters.

McGuilty was a POS and Wynnebag was a evil horse faced goon who raped the Province worse than any other ever has.
But even then I don't automatically write off the Liberals.
I have no idea who they're going to put up for nomination.
Maybe they'll be better, maybe not.
I'd much rather the NDP get their shiat together so they win.

Wynne wasn't that bad her heart was in the right place but there was a lot of baggage she inherited so it was only a matter of time. The Liberals will be back either next election or the one after.
