“It’s been three years since COVID despatched us down a path to madness” (Brian Lilley, March 11) denigrates most of the actions Canada took to scale back deaths from this pandemic. Whereas there might have been some higher selections with the good thing about hindsight, general Canada did fairly properly. If we had taken the much less regulated route the U.S. took, I imagine 1000’s of extra Canadians would have died. I used to be glad to endure our extra stringent rules that resulted within the saving of so many lives. Positive, there are issues we will be taught from this expertise, however erring on the aspect of warning throughout a pandemic is rarely a nasty selection. We also needs to be cautious to not dismiss actions that turned out to be of restricted profit for COVID-19. The following pandemic will probably be completely different, and its finest practices will doubtless even be completely different.

I learn Brian Lilley`s “Wealth of points” article within the March 16 Toronto Solar with some curiosity. I imagine that the rationale Justin Trudeau doesn’t need anybody, aside from his political buddies, to look into any attainable election interference points is that it’d implicate himself in addition to different candidates from the previous two elections. What’s the outdated adage … comply with the cash? I feel that Lilley has performed a wonderful job of reporting on this challenge. If a pile of filth stinks, then there’s in all probability some poop in it.

Thriller balloons and drone dousing are all enjoyable and video games, I’m positive, however there’s a YouTube video Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin want to sit down down and watch collectively. It’s a clip of Christopher Walken within the movie Poolhall Junkies. Walken delivers a soliloquy a couple of male lion laying, drained and sizzling, within the grass. The lion is poked and prodded by hyenas, who run amok over his land. Eventually, the lion has sufficient and, properly, go watch the video. Admiral Yamamoto regretted waking a “sleeping large.” China and Russia ought to keep in mind that the factor they’re poking, although it’s reluctant and maybe seems a bit of fatigued, continues to be an enormous. Or a lion. Take your choose.
