Daily Quote: December 10, 2020

Are right and wrong convertible terms,
dependant upon popular opinion?

~ William Lloyd Garrison (American – Journalist / December 10, 1805 – May 24, 1879)

Holidays and Celebrations:

*COVID-19 vaccinations have begun in Great Britain as we all hope for an end to the pandemic. COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for use in Canada. And the great debate begins. Should people be forced to be vaccinated? Canadian leaders are saying it’s your choice, but if you can’t show your government issued proof of vaccination you could have limited access to public venues, work or travel. So just like your pets you will need to have the vaccine to travel.

Meanwhile controversy continues about the amount of energy and resources poured into controlling this pandemic while other illnesses still don’t have cures/vaccines (Aids/HIV) and starvation remains the major cause of death in the world. The distance between the “haves” and “havenots” continues to increase. Drinking water on many reservations in Canada remains unfit for consumption.

Locally our Seniors Centre will be closing. The volunteer organization that maintained the building and ran the programs weren’t able to raise the necessary funds while the building was temporarily closed during COVID-19 restrictions. Asking for help from the Municipality, like any good landlord during the Pandemic, the Municipality decided not to help, forcing the tenants to vacate so the Municipality can sell the building. Political speakease in the Municipality’s press release made promises to work for new Senior’s programming. I too look forward to the new programming, but am afraid I’ll probably never see it.
