You should be more worried about the long term effects on your body from getting an untested poison injected than a couple of people getting a cold.

Interesting take.

And by interesting, I mean completely generic and redundant anti-vaxxer tripe which is the reason your province is in a state of emergency right now and will soon run out of ICU beds.

It's okay though, if you pour some Albertan sludge on the corpses and light a match, you can save a ton on the funeral costs.

Better tell our government we are in a state of emergency since they appear to be unaware of your proclamation.

When they say ICU "bed" does it mean just the bed or is it a term that describes staffing, funding and equipping?

And Mulroney just endorsed this POS..

O'Toole refuses to say whether Kenney got it wrong on COVID-19 MANAGEMENT

OTTAWA -- Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole refused to say Thursday whether he still thinks Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has handled the pandemic better than the federal government, as the province faces a rapidly worsening COVID-19 situation.

After Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh both addressed the newly-announced restrictions in that province and Kenney’s about-face on vaccine passports, O’Toole repeatedly dodged reporters’ questions on the matter.

Trudeau says he ‘won’t back down’ from anti-vaxx protesters​


“I can’t back down from standing up for Canadians,” said Trudeau in a press conference on Labour Day. “I won’t back down.”

The crowds, which have been seen holding signs protesting vaccines and COVID-19 measures have often spewed insults and obscenities towards Trudeau, Liberal supporters and media. At times, they’ve followed him along the campaign trail, but Trudeau said the constant pressure from the outspoken minority hasn’t changed his outlook.

They should have pelted him with cow shit considering the amount of manure that comes out of his mouth.

Gravel-throwing trial: Lawyer for accused plans to subpoena Justin Trudeau
Author of the article:Dale Carruthers
Publishing date:Aug 15, 2022 • 11 hours ago • 2 minute read • 8 Comments

The lawyer representing a man accused of pelting Justin Trudeau with pebbles during a London campaign stop last year says he plans to subpoena the prime minister.


Shane Marshall, 26, of St. Thomas, is charged with assault with a weapon after gravel was thrown at Trudeau while he was boarding a bus following a campaign stop outside the London Brewing Co-op on Sept. 6, 2021.

Video of the incident shows the prime minister turn around abruptly as he appears to be struck with small rocks before boarding the bus while protesters – many of them holding People’s Party of Canada signs – shout obscenities at him.

Lawyer Phillip Millar, who is representing Marshall, said he’s preparing to subpoena Trudeau on Thursday, alleging the prime minister provided contradictory accounts of whether he was struck by stones.

“I have every intention of subpoenaing Justin Trudeau, challenging him on the inconsistencies of his statements and alleging that he was provoking the protesters,” Millar said Monday.


Trudeau, who wasn’t injured, told reporters on the bus after the incident he wasn’t sure whether the stones struck him.

“Does it matter?” video of the interaction shows Trudeau responding to a reporter when asked if he was hit.

A trial date for Marshall, who was released on bail, will be set on Wednesday.

“We have a very strong case to justify that subpoena and believe that it will be enforced,” Millar said, adding he’d love to cross-examine the prime minister.


The Prime Minister’s Office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.

Marshall was the People’s Party of Canada’s riding association president for the riding of Elgin-Middlesex-London at the time of the incident. The party turfed him after his alleged involvement in the attack on Trudeau surfaced online.


The Canada Anti-Hate Network said at the time it had been monitoring Marshall for more than a year after linking him to alleged white nationalist postings on social media.

In an unrelated criminal case, Marshall was given a five-year weapons ban on July 19 as part of deal that saw the Crown withdraw a charge of storing a firearm in an unsafe manner laid in October 2020, according to court records.

Marshall made headlines during the Freedom Convoy occupation in Ottawa, where footage of him being arrested on Feb. 17 – one day before police began a massive operation to remove the demonstrators – was posted on social media.

Millar said his client was later released without charges.

as i said before, perhaps there should be an auto lock and auto delete feature for posts and threads that have gone past a certain age to avoid upsetting the more uptight posters. 💡 :( :rolleyes:

Man accused of pelting Justin Trudeau with stones on OPP radar
A St. Thomas man accused of throwing stones at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in London was one of dozens of people profiled in a police intelligence report prepared as the "freedom convoy" protests swept across Canada earlier this year.

A St. Thomas man accused of throwing stones at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in London was one of dozens of people profiled in a police intelligence report prepared as the “freedom convoy” protests swept across Canada earlier this year.


The Ontario Provincial Police intelligence bureau created dozens of persons-of-interest profiles that catalogued the individuals’ connections to past protests and groups, social media activity, gun ownership details, personal information such as home addresses, and contact with police.


Redacted copies of the profiles have been released by the Public Order Emergency Commission, the inquiry into the federal government’s justification for invoking the Emergencies Act in response to the convoy protests.

A profile was created on Shane Marshall, 26, of St. Thomas, who is charged with assault with a weapon after gravel was thrown at Trudeau during a campaign stop in London on Sept. 6, 2021.

Although Marshall’s name has been redacted from the 13-page report, the charges against him and a social media post showing him at the Ottawa protest confirm he is the subject of the profile.


The report flags Marshall as “violent” and known for carrying weapons and drugs. He’s associated with the Church of God in Aylmer, the site of frequent protests against COVID-19 restrictions, and Diagolon, a far-right group whose founder remains in jail after his arrest on firearms-related offences, the report says.

Marshall, a registered gun owner, has a 22-calibre rifle that he has turned over to London police, the report says.


Marshall was given a five-year weapons ban on July 19 as part of a deal that saw the Crown withdraw a charge of storing a firearm in an unsafe manner laid in October 2020, according to court records.

The report listed nine interactions with the OPP for occurrences that included threatening phone calls made to then-MPP Jeff Yurek and an apprehension under the Mental Health Act. There were also 13 interactions with St. Thomas police for occurrences that included refusing to wear a mask, traffic infractions and possession of marijuana.


In an interaction with Hamilton police, the report says, Marshal “removed the cloth covering of (the) Sir John A. Macdonald statue in Gore Park in Hamilton and replaced it with a Canadian flag in the name of nationalism.”

The report included content from Marshall’s Instagram and Facebook accounts, where one post said, “I’m ready to die here Fedboi are you?” and another post showed a photo that appeared to show Marshall carrying jerry cans in Ottawa.



The OPP’s report on Marshall is dated Feb. 7. He was arrested in Ottawa on Feb. 17 — a video of the arrest was posted on social media — when police also arrested protest organizers Tamara Lich and Chris Barber.


Marshall was later released without charges, his lawyer, Phillip Millar, previously said.

Marshall was the People’s Party of Canada riding association president for Elgin-Middlesex-London when he was charged with the alleged stone-throwing attack on Trudeau, who wasn’t injured.

Video of the incident shows the prime minister turn around as he appears to be struck with small rocks before boarding a campaign bus while protesters — many of them holding People’s Party of Canada signs — shout obscenities at him. The PPC turfed Marshall after he was linked online to the attack on Trudeau.

Millar, who wasn’t available for comment Monday, previously said he planned to subpoena the prime minister to testify at Marshall’s trial. His trial is scheduled to begin March 7.

The OPP also created profiles for several other Southwestern Ontario residents, the bulk of them in Sarnia and Windsor, as well as for high-profile supporters of the protest movement, including former MPP Randy Hillier and former RCMP officer James Bulford.

An OPP spokesperson declined to comment on the intelligence report, citing the ongoing commission.

The commission, headed by Justice Paul Rouleau, began on Oct. 13 and is expected to continue until Nov. 25.
