This is not a joke

Animals will be vaccinated in the United States before humans are, here in Canada.

I wanted to give you an April Fool’s joke, but I can’t top that one, above.

Justin Trudeau is, truly, the worst Prime Minister of my lifetime.


  1. RKJ says:

    No one does “touchy-feely” better than Justin. That’s worth lots of votes among some segments.

    • dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack says:

      That’s probably true…. But its also a sterling example of why dictatorships still exist in the 21st Century.

  2. Campbell says:

    By that reasoning, is it not also the case that animals in the US will be vaccinated before humans in the US? Or are you asserting that after the US has all humans vaccinated that consent to it, they will then begin vaccinating animals, and that this will occur prior to Canada succeeds in vaccinating all humans in Canada who consent to it (which I think was already fairly well established)? I guess what I’m saying is, what is the true scandal in the statement you made?; I didn’t read anything there that couldn’t already be reasonable inferred…

  3. Billy Bob says:

    And there you have it, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Ham Sandwich crowd that would vote for/find any excuse for the Liberal party. The true scandal is that your ilk continues to support/make excuses for this abomination of leader no matter what he does – gropes reporters, multiple instances of blackface (don’t forget the banana down the pants, nice touch there!), firing women of power, encouraging corporate malfesance , billion dollar sole source contracts to friends, corruption, corruption, corruption, a complete shitshow of a pandemic response/vaccine delivery. And yet he still exists in the polls, never mind leads. It truly makes me embarassed to be a Canadian, actually ashamed. We are 1900s Argentina, blissfully unaware of our not so slow descent into banana republic status. Maybe the banana down the pants wasn’t homage to his blackface but rather his Nostradomus magic wand…

    • david says:

      Oh piss off already.
      This constant bashing is getting ridiculous.
      If you want Steve and Skippy back so bad go ahead and vote for them but I’ve seen enough of the Conservative dirt beneath the shine to last a lifetime.

      • RKJ says:

        Don’t cry for me Argentina….here we go.

      • dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack says:

        Conservative dirt between the shine?! Justin could never rise to the level of Stephen Harper in terms of decency, ethics, values, responsible conduct, respect for institutions.

    • Scot says:

      Nice list of non scandals. You right wingers are the ones who feel the need to be led around by the nose by a so called strong leader.

      • Lawrence Barry says:

        “Scot” – “non scandals”. That’s rich.

      • dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack says:

        Liberals accept being led around the nose by a hopeless disaster / man-child? I don’t recall when that became part of the Liberal tradition. We’ll see if that lasts into the winter – you know – when the pension service is in.

      • Brine says:

        If you think those are non-scandals, what do you think are legitimate ones? Expensive orange juice??

        Why don’t you tell the families of those who have prematurely lost loved ones due to the Liberals’ vaccine procurement incompetence that it’s a non scandal.

        Wow, that Liberal kool-ade must taste really good to you. Warren’s right, you’re part of a fucking cult.

        • Scot says:

          Deaths per million. Canada better than Russia, Israel, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, USA, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Hungary and numerous other countries.
          You need to get your head out of the right wing echo chamber and clue in to reality.

          • jsa says:

            Apples and oranges, Scot.

            Canada has a population density of about 5 people/km2. Most of the countries you mention have over 100 people/km2.

            Israel looks to have about 400 people/km2 with 718 deaths/million…


          • Quo vadis says:

            And there are over 130 countries better than Canada. This is a useless statistic on its own.

          • Scot says:

            jsa…that’s bogus because 83% of Canada’s
            population is urban. Almost identical to Spain at 82%. So no, not apples and oranges.

          • jsa says:

            OK fine, Canada is doing better than Spain, whatever… That just leaves: Russia, Israel, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, USA, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Hungary and numerous other countries.

          • Martin says:

            Here is the problem with high fiving deaths per million. Sure, 63rd in the world is pretty good for deaths per million. Not great but pretty good. But here is what kills that as a bragging point for the math challenged groupies of the JT cult who will defend anything and everything. The same source using the same metrics puts us at 68th in the world for vaccines delivered per 100. Can’t brag about the one without acknowledging the other is criminal.

          • Scot says:

            Jsa…obtuse much? Spain was only one example. Almost all those countries have the same urban/rural percentages. The statistic you quote is meaningless.
            Martin…get back to me in a month and we’ll talk vaccine numbers. When the smoke clears Canada will look pretty damn good. You Conservative groupies will have to find a new rag to chew on.
            Side note to Warren…if they can call me a math challenged groupie of a cult I feel free to return the compliment.

          • jsa says:


          • Martin says:

            I am sure that the family members of those who die while waiting for the country to start performing better on vaccines distributed will take solace with your prediction(which is based on no facts currently on the ground).

  4. My first thoughts went to all the people in developing countries that are below us on the vaccination list.

  5. dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack says:

    The Budget will feature a Justin scholarship, reserved for racist kids who are expelled for sexual assault. It will provide a free ride, no classes, cult membership for life and an executive level job that the scholar can’t understand.

  6. Phil Brunet says:

    1. Justin Trudeau is a fucking idiot.

    2. Don’t like obscenities? Thanks to Trudeau, Canada’s kids now have an extra $1,000,000,000,000 in public debt to pay off.

    Let’s see which item you censor.

  7. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    Trudeau’s record speaks for itself. No question about that. And now, what about that spring election? Still no GG? Strange. You mean this Prime Minister still hasn’t got it in first gear? Go figure.

  8. Gilbert says:

    The prime minister’s plan is simple. He wants to bribe voters with their own money, get lots of positive stories from the media, and convince Canadians the Conservatives are old, white racists who hate science. Will it work? Time will tell.

    • Ronald O'Dowd says:


      I won’t be any more arrogant than usual and suddenly pretend that I’ve got a right to tell people how to vote but I will say this: think long and hard before you make a decision and cast your ballot. And vote because your country needs your input now more than ever. Thank you.

    • Scot says:

      Trudeau doesn’t have to convince Canadians. Conservatives are doing a fine job of that all by themselves.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:


        Sorry, but you have it backwards. The more people who die due to COVID-19 waiting for Trudeau’s fantasy vaccine herd immunity, the more votes are found for opposition parties, not just the Conservatives. That’s what defeats this government, not anything the CPC does or doesn’t do. Trudeau didn’t defeat Harper. Harper defeated Harper. And as sure as I’m breathing this stumbling, bumbling Prime Minister is already well on his way to doing that. Just let the COVID-19 vaccine reality sink in between now and September. Liberals had better start shaking right away because defeat is already slowly on its way.

        • Scot says:

          Wishful thinking eh. Ask yourself honestly Ronald, just how bad off the country would be if tight ass inept Conservative had been in charge. The assholes barely believe in covid. Climate deniers, anti-vaxxers white supremacists and holy rollers. As motley a bunch as there ever was.

          • Ronald O'Dowd says:


            Seriously, do you think that a dyed-in-the-wool Red Tory would have returned to the CPC if it was to any significant degree what you’ve described? Every party has its share of fools and nutcases. It’s always up to the leader to pass the vacuum and I’m more than confident that Erin’s VC is powered with green energy batteries! After all, if you don’t clean house, you have no hope of winning. It’s not like any leader has a choice, now is it.

        • Scot says:

          And by the way Ronald, Trudeau kicked the shit out of Harper in the debates. Don’t know if you ever went to a rally but people were genuinely excited to see him. He’s a damn fine campaigner. Really had little to do with Harper. That’s just a Con excuse.

          • Ronald O'Dowd says:


            Yes, Trudeau did well in the debates. And yes, there is a Trudeau mania quality to him. And yes, he campaigns quite well. My problem with him is how he handles government ethics and high priority items like COVID-19. No Liberal can credibly put lipstick on those two pigs. Trudeau was and is an abject failure on both of those fronts. I know it, you know it, and pretty much everyone else knows it too.

  9. Jeff says:

    Hey Scot, my in laws where vaccinated within 3 hours of their plane landing in Arizona and got their 2nd shot 3 weeks later(not 4 months!). If you think that sockboy is doing such a great job then why won’t he show us the contracts?

    • Scot says:

      Sorry Ronald, I don’t know it nor do the the 38% of Canadians who support the Liberal party.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:


        Remember what happened to Michael, whom I strongly supported? Well, get ready for an instant replay as 33% of Liberal supporters sit the next one out. This Prime Minister is going to love them apples…LOL. And wouldn’t it be a gas if they mostly came from that same strongly emerging wing of the party? Now, that would be memorable, don’t you think? I’ve half a mind to call them the new Martinites!

    • Scot says:

      Shit, that comment was for Ronald.
      Jeff, too bad the Cons got rid of Connaught Labs or we could have had our own vaccine. To bad mouth Liberals after your dumb-ass party got rid of our home grown public labs is a joke.
      Ten million shots arrive this week. At that point you Cons just become a bunch of yapping mutts.

      • Ronald O'Dowd says:


        I look forward to you backing that up with proof that the Harper government was responsible. Maybe, maybe not. It’s not a file that I have any knowledge of so enlighten me, if you can. Same request to CPC supporters who have knowledge of that file. Thanks.

  10. Jeff says:

    Scot, do me a favor & google pnuvax!
    How much do you want to bet on 10,000,000 not arriving??? or even the over/under on 10 I bet we don’t receive 3!!

  11. Martin says:

    Again, shots in arms is the only metric that matters. Deliveries is just conversation. Every adult in the US will be eligible for a vaccine by April 19th. Let that sink in for a moment. That is in less than two weeks. I am 63 and hoping a waiting list spot opens up. Herd immunity remains my go to plan.
