  1. No doubt who the Chinese prefer to be our Government. FIRST READING: Beijing meddling in election, why a Trudeau MP is voting Tory | National Post China weighs in on Canada’s election after Conservatives promise to ‘stand up’ to Beijing | South China Morning Post (scmp.com)
  2. Covid-19 This was not written by me, but I agree with the content. I'm vaccinated and, no, I don't know what's in it—neither this vaccine nor the ones I had as a child; or what’s in that Big Mac, that pumpkin-spice flavoring, or in hot dogs or chicken tenders; or what’s in other drugs used for other treatments … whether the treatment is for cancer, AIDS, or polyarthritis. I don't actually know what's in Ibuprofen, Tylenol, or other pain meds that almost everyone takes, I just know it cures my headaches and my pain. Or what’s in cough medicine, that allergy nasal spray, insulin, or high blood pressure meds. I also don't know what's in the ink for tattoos, vaping cigs, or every ingredient in my soap or shampoo or deodorants. I don’t know what’s in lipstick. I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I just ate at REALLY used clean utensils, fresh foods, and whether the employees there washed their hands. In short ... There's a lot of things I don't know and never will. I just know one thing: life is short, very short. And I still want to do something with my life other than just going to work every day or staying locked in my home. I still want to travel and hug people without fear and experience more of my life "before.” As a child and as an adult I've been vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, small pox, and quite a few others (as an adult I’ve been vaccinated for tetanus and hepatitis, and each fall I get a flu shot that is less effective at preventing flu than the Covid vaccine is at preventing Covid-19). My parents and I trusted the science and never had to suffer through or transmit any of the childhood diseases that used to kill children and adults. I'm vaccinated, not to please the government but: * to NOT die from Covid-19. * to NOT clutter a hospital bed if I get sick. * to hug my loved ones without fearing I may transmit a deadly virus to them. * to NOT have to do PCR or antigenic tests so I can go to a concert, go to a restaurant, go on holidays, and many more things to come. * to live my life. * to have my kids/grandkids go back to school and play sports—safely. * to make these days of Covid-19 become just an old memory. * to protect us—all of us.
  3. No interest in Canadian made vaccine here in Canada but.

  4. Greece appears to have experienced a very deep recession in 2020 and even under optimistic assumptions, a full recovery will take some time beyond 2021. In addition, the recession and the cost of the measures to mitigate it have already led to a further sharp rise of Greece’s already exorbitantly high public debt.

  5. A last word until the vote is tallied. No matter what is posted here, before that, no one on this forum will change their vote, so perhaps to reduce the band width, it is time to call an end to posts about the election and those who are running..... Adieu until the results are in.

  9. Qantas To Ban Unvaccinated Travelers On International Flights byJoanna Bailey September 9, 2021 The boss of Qantas, Alan Joyce, has confirmed that the airline will not allow unvaccinated passengers to travel with it internationally. Qantas is eyeing a mid-December restart for international flying, and has already run a successful incentive program to encourage its passengers to vaccinate. Dreaming of jetting off on Qantas? Better make sure you’re vaccinated. No vaccine, no fly As mooted by the airline’s CEO last year, Qantas has confirmed plans to refuse carriage of those who have not had the full course of vaccination against COVID. Speaking at the Trans-Tasman Business Circle this week, as reported by Traveller, CEO Alan Joyce said, Joyce has long taken a hard line on the vaccination debate. The airline has already made it clear that it wants to make vaccination mandatory for its 22,000 workers, a move that is reportedly welcomed by staff. Frontline staff working in both Qantas and Jetstar are expected to be double vaccinated by mid-November, while office-based workers have until the end of March to get their shots.

  10. There are $600Million reasons why we should not be .............
  11. Likely because they rely on and trust information posted on Social Media or spewed out by celebrities'.
  12. That may be true but they don't say how we will be able to replay the money. Afterall they have a leader who boasts about doesn’t think about monetary policy . (maybe he doesn't know what that is) What is Monetary Policy? - Bank of Canada
