"Standards" are subjective in this day and age. If you're suggesting that I wouldn't put much faith in what True North publishes you are partially correct. They have a widespread reputation for extreme bias and questionable factual content, so I would think it likely that they are cherry picking the "facts" they do publish, and that it would be unwise to repeat anything they say without verifying the information through other sources.
Sounds the same as pretty much any news organization.

City News which you found reputable no?
I did. "Slight to moderate liberal bias, factually accurate but employs loaded words." This is pretty middle-of-the-road with what's out there today, and a slight bias is easy to filter out when you have advance notice of which direction they're leaning. Looking for some sort of rating comes in two parts, finding and paying attention to the rating is one thing, being willing to look for that rating is another. I take issue with people who search for ratings with a predetermined idea of what they want to find, as well as those who won't look at all.

Three years of Russian collusion using the same buzz words as the Washington Post , CNN and New York Times . Yup slight liberal bias and factually accurate .

To my knowledge City News doesn't have a rotten reputation like some of your other sources, so I have no reason to doubt the factual content of their reports. It's also plain to me that Levant was only using the news bite as an opportunity to take a shot at CBC, an admittedly left leaning news site, and a shot at CBC is as good as a shot at the Federal Liberals in his mind. I really don't think Levant cares at all about political issues one way or the other. He sees that lighting fires to get a rise out of uninformed hotheads makes for an easy buck and it doesn't go any farther than that.
So your opinion changed because?

How about Ron's source?

Dr. Deena Hinshaw apologizes and says Alberta teen didn't actually die from COVID
In a Facebook post, Simone Spitzer said the 14-year-old was her brother, and that he was dying of brain cancer, but had been diagnosed with COVID-19 two days before his death.

“He died from stage 4 brain cancer, not from covid,” Spitzer wrote, linking to a news story about the death. “This is fake news.”

On Wednesday, Hinshaw clarified that while the initial report of the death of the child included COVID-19 as a “secondary cause,” new information indicated that COVID-19 was not the cause of death. She apologized directly to the family.

The rest at the above link.

I read it every day. Have yet to find anything they are wrong about. Sometimes the articles have a definite social rightwing slant, but the facts are never wrong.
It's funny how new sources like CBC can have the facts but have a left wing slant its ok but if it has the facts and a right wing slant its a bogus source.

I read both and try to filter out the slants.

I question everyone, & I’m also fully vaccinated. Early on I could see which direction the wind was blowing, & I wanted the ability to see my grandchildren and to earn a living unimpeded….so I got each vaccination as soon as it was available.

We’ll also be getting our seasonal flu shots as soon as we can as in these weird politically charged times you don’t want so much as a cough or sniffle as that can ostracize you from the workplace or the ability to function throughout society as it currently sits.
I did get the vaccine but now kinda wishing I hadn't. But it's done - too late now.

Hopefully, hubby will still get some protection (from me anyway) as he's the ONLY reason I got the jabs to begin with. He's gotten the Booster; I haven't and I don't think I'll get it at this point in time. We'll see.

My son and I wanted to go into a restaurant for a bite to eat & were asked for proof of vaccination. We provided it and then they wanted more information - we turned and walked out. My son was upset but I emphasized to him that personal information is simply that and NO ONE can force you to provide it. The loss of not eating at the restaurant is their loss not ours. I suppose one could think that our loss was not to be able to eat there but seriously, it's not something that we HAD to do - it was an option that we thought we'd take & it didn't work out - c'est la vie. We saved ourselves some money.

What information do they want? All I have ever been asked for is proof of vaccination and a photo id to show you are who you say you are.

Because the vax doesn't work. My sister in Texas had her 3rd dose and wound up with myocarditis 4 days later.

Luckily she works for a specialist in the same facility or the cardiologists were going to call it "inconvlusive".

She fought back and got a "working diagnosis" so she has grounds for recourse.

We, the non vaccinated ones already knew this all the time that these covid phony and fake vaccines do not work. Now people have to ask themselves as to why they are still being told that they must have booster jabs. This bullshit will never end until the sheeple say enough already, I do not want to play this bullshit covid hoax game any longer. And the first thing they should do is to stop wearing those clown masks anymore. The wearing of a mask is a sign of submission and obedience to the likes of Castro Turdeau and the Gates to hell globalists. This would and could all end tomorrow if the sheeple would do just that. But will they? I get this bad feeling that they will not and that they will still go along with this covid bullshit for months or years to come. Scary shit, people.

Why are there so many nurses and doctors and care home workers refusing to take the jab? Is there something dangerous about these experimental gene therapy vaccines that they know something about that we the sheeple do not know anything about? Could they be that harmful to our health and bodies? It's beginning to look that way alright.

Why are our traitorous politicians pushing so hard for everybody to take the jabs? What is in it for those useless dolts. That is all they seem to be interested in all the time, and want to talk about every day, with the complicity of the lying and fake Canadian media to help them out constantly with their covid vaccine bullshit.

If your sister experienced an almost fatal dose of another covid vaccine booster jab, and luckily she survived, that should be enough of a wake up call and warning for those that may be told or even be forced to have to take one or more booster jabs just so they can still be able to travel or go into a restaurant.

There has to be more to this then just some virus. There truly does appear to b a conspiracy going on here. Everything seems to point that way. (n)

Well, we’ve never interacted before. This is an interesting start though. I have to interact in society to pick up a prescription or put fuel in our vehicles or to grab a bottle on a Friday night….& currently the rules are that in order to interact in public to accomplish the above tasks I’ve used as examples….you have to wear a mask…so I wear a mask.

I don’t necessarily agree with Equalization or Carbon Tax’s, but am I a ‘sheeple’ for reconciling my income tax annually or paying my heating bill to keep my house warm, etc….??? We all have our own “line in the sand” that we won’t cross, and most of us are adult enough to know which hills we will die on & which ones we won’t.

Luckily, I just keep getting better looking each year, but I’m assuming society as a whole is grateful that some (like yourself) have to wear a mask (or in your case a face-diaper) in these weird & wacky times.

We haven’t interacted before now, but you smell familiar. Who where you before you where “taxme” anyway?

You do not need to wear a diaper mask for there is nothing to worry about anymore. But you are still being forced to wear a diaper mask which is an unhealthy thing for anyone to be doing. Masks do not work. Bacteria can build up on masks that can be harmful to people who especially have to wear them all day. And besides, those that wear a mask are only showing their submission and obedience to their traitorous politicians and those scum bag globalists.

Well, I do not know as to whether you are good looking or bad looking. Maybe you like wearing a mask because you are to scary to look at without a mask. LOL.

Well, if I smell familiar then you should take a guess as to where or who I may be? So, any guesses? :cool:

Sad fact...5 Libertarian vax defiant types I know in Regina are currently in hospital. One isn't going to make it out.

Vax or no vax this shit kills. I guess 4 of them won't need a poke now but....

So I'm (obviously) not understanding. If the 17-year-old was "healthy", and the vaccine is supposed to be "safe", how does one reconcile the two? I would want to know why he died and I certainly wouldn't want my child, no matter what age, vaxxed until I knew exactly why this had happened.

You are not supposed to ask those kinds of questions. You can only ask if he had his booster shot yet.
