Two small clusters of deaths after COVID-19 vaccination have been reported among nursing homes in Kentucky and Arkansas. In Kentucky, four seniors died the same day of their vaccination on Dec. 30, 2020. Three of the four who passed away reportedly already had had coronavirus prior to getting vaccinated. Deaths after vaccination don’t necessarily mean the vaccine is to blame. Of those receiving coronavirus vaccines, many are elderly and frail, or already suffering from serious illnesses. Currently, the CDC recommends vaccination for people who’ve already had coronavirus. The agency didn’t directly answer the question of whether it’s safe for people to get vaccinated while they have an active COVID-19 infection.

Eight days after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, a broker notified the PMO of the offer, stating they needed to act fast if they wanted to secure the shipment. “Honeywell has the capacity to manufacture N95 masks for Canada,” wrote the broker on March 19, adding Honeywell had other customers interested in the masks. Despite this, managers at the Department of Public Works replied saying health managers didn’t consider the matter urgent enough — despite a dire mask shortage in Canada’s National Emergency Strategic Stockpile (NESS) and other departments intent on sourcing millions of Chinese-made masks — with quotes of upwards of $10 per unit. PHAC managers told the Commons Health Committee on April 22 they had no idea what they had in the strategic stockpile.

Calgarian John Yag, who randomly stabbed a mother and her young child, can argue his self-induced intoxication from marijuana consumption made him unable to appreciate the consequences of his actions, a judge ruled Friday. Justice Robert Hall, in a written decision, rejected suggestions by Crown prosecutor Vicki Faulkner that there was no “air of reality” to the suggestion extreme intoxication was what led to Yag’s attacks. And the Court of Queen’s Bench judge went on to declare a section of the Criminal Code which prohibits self-induced intoxication as a defence unconstitutional. The judge agreed with defence counsel Andrea Urquhart there was evidence to suggest Yag may have been so high on marijuana that he acted involuntarily at the time he attacked his two victims.
You’ll notice something different about the editorial front page of today’s print edition: it is blank. It represents a very real phenomenon — local headlines and local newspapers are disappearing across Canada. A large part of the reason is the dominance of global tech giants such as Google and Facebook, which refuse to pay a fair price for content created by Canadian news outlets. They also drain off more than 80 per cent of all digital advertising revenue in Canada. Our blank front page is part of a nationwide campaign by News Media Canada to raise awareness of the danger this phenomenon poses not only to local media but to democracy itself.
A desperate Justin Trudeau pleaded with Canada’s premiers to take a “Team Canada” approach and not turn the vaccine shortage into a partisan wedge issue during a tense phone call late Thursday. Trudeau has been battling bad headlines all week over delays in vaccine deliveries, Canada turning to a program to help poor countries as a way to get doses and a failed announcement on producing vaccines in Canada that won’t pay off until 2022. It’s a bit rich, though, for Trudeau to ask premiers not to become partisan. It was just a day earlier that the PM was in the House of Commons blasting conservative premiers for not using rapid tests. His MPs regularly blame conservatives and attack provinces run by conservatives.

Mexico on Thursday surpassed India in confirmed COVID-19 deaths, giving the Latin American country the third-highest toll worldwide, according to a Reuters tally of official data. Mexico’s health ministry reported 18,670 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infections and 1,506 additional fatalities, bringing the total number of cases to 1,825,519 and deaths to 155,145. When adjusted for deaths per head of population, Mexico’s toll is lower than those of several other countries, including the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Italy, the United States, Peru and Spain, according to data published by Johns Hopkins University.
Where, oh where was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the Christmastime/New Year’s period? Guy Annable of the Ottawa-based Capital Voice has a hunch. Guy thinks the PM may have flown south to a Caribbean destination, perhaps the Turks and Caicos Islands. Guy bases his hypothesis on diligently tracking flights out of Ottawa during this period, including federal government-owned jets. As well, he notes that in early January, an arriving government jet from the Caribbean landing in Ottawa was met by a five car motorcade. And really, how many people receive that kind of reception? For what it’s worth, we reached out to the Prime Minister’s Office with a very simple question: did Justin Trudeau leave the country during the holiday period?

Mitch McConnell is coming out swinging. No longer the top lawmaker in the Senate and under fire from his own side of the political spectrum, the Kentucky senator delivered a speech on Thursday that showed he’s far from out of the fight. McConnell made that clear as he slammed Biden’s decisions to pander to the radical left on environmental and immigration issues in ways that are only going to harm Americans at a grassroots level. “This is not the Day One American workers deserved,” McConnell said, in one of the all-time understatements on the Senate floor.
“When partisanship becomes so strong that you create your own reality and that basic facts are no longer a source of consensus, then you undermine the trust that people have in the institutions by making false claims. So we have to be vigilant,” says Beland. “I’m not saying we should panic. Canadian democracy is healthier than American democracy right now, but we mustn’t be complacent.” Trump is a delusional, dangerous man and those who believe his lies without verification undermine their democracy and the country they claim they are fighting for. We must all stop the erosion of our democracy by seeking truth, not lies.
