The All-Knowing Covid
Doug Ford has brought down the hammer on Ontario … just in time for big boxes from all over to rake in the last few Christmas dollars.
Who gives a shit if this irresponsibility and cow-towing to the world’s largest corporations results in even more wild-fire spread of Covid over the next few days? We have to make sure that CostCo and BestBuy and other non-essential retailers clean up the last few dollars that we have.
Anyways, in case you didn’t read or hear the news, Ontario will officially enter complete lockdown starting at 12:01 am on December 26. Because Covid knows how to get in its last-minute attack on humans just before that and afterwards, will hold off.
Or that sports teams and gatherings of a magical number of 9 people and yourself will keep the disease at bay, while my kid having ONE friend over (someone that’s been over many times over the last 9 months and hasn’t shown as shred of irresponsibility as a 16-year-old compared to the infantile anti-maskers of Alberta and elsewhere) will bring about a plague unlike anything we’ve seen since Moses brought the finger of death upon Pharoah and all the first born of Egypt. And a massive fine, to boot.
Seriously … I’m happy to play along, but let’s have some sensible, non-arbitrary rules that favour prevention as opposed to favouring the haves over the have-nots. Allowing exceptions will result in exceptional catastrophic times in the weeks ahead.
Shut it down.
There are some 30+ different religious celebrations and festivals that take place during the 2-3 months surrounding November, December and January. If you celebrate any of these, I wish you all the best and hope that 2021 brings you a Covid-free existence.
It’s been fun. I look forward to what the New Year brings.
