Global National: May 25, 2021 | Manitoba's health system on verge of collapse amid COVID-19 crisis

by News Update

On this episode of Global National: The federal government is sending health workers and other help to Manitoba, as an ongoing surge of COVID-19 cases puts the province’s health system on the verge of collapse. As Brittany Greenslade reports, hospitals are struggling, and restrictions are being extended.

But in British Columbia, that province is making progress in the fight against COVID-19 and has revealed its gradual plan to reopen. Eric Sorensen reports on the four-phase strategy to return to normalcy and how it compares to other provinces’ plans.

In the U.S., it’s been one year since the death of George Floyd sparked a worldwide reckoning on racial injustice and police brutality. So what’s changed? Jackson Proskow reports.

In Japan, despite growing backlash, Olympic officials insist the Tokyo Summer Games are still on track for July, as the country deals with a worsening COVID-19 crisis. Crystal Goomansingh reports.

And in Nepal, at least 100 people have contracted COVID-19 at the Mount Everest base camp, as the virus creeps up the world’s highest peak. Mike Drolet reports on how Nepalese officials are reacting, and speaks to Edmonton-based mountaineer Leo Namen, who witnessed pandemic protocols being ignored in Kathmandu.

Let face it…"freedom" of the press is a bit out of control. The media we watch is based on what they want us to watch, some of which they create themselves. This pass year has proven that. 18:38 "Attacks on the Capital building", lol, They call it a "protest" on Fox.

With a 99 plus percent recovery this is totally fear fear fear that's all they're selling wake up please wake up say no to their mRNA experimental jab.

No Olympics … Why take the risk?? Who cares anyways!!

Maclean Classics May 26, 2021 - 8:43 AM

Stop the fear journalism, its getting old… nobody is on the verge of " collapse". Quite far from it…. Manatoba medical staff will do the best they can and continue to do so. The only thing collapsing during this pandemic is the economy and any trust the public has for media or government.

This Female Journalist….. How does she sleep at night knowing she constantly tells lies and lies to the Canadian Public??

Jason Piro May 26, 2021 - 8:55 AM

The problem I have is that they're taking the freedom away from companies like Facebook and Google, and giving them to one single entity like the crazy government at the time. So really the freedom is lost either way…

If the tables were turned, I would be inclined to say it's wrong, but then again no politician of mine is trying to start riots or a civil war or get an officers eyes gouged at the capitol riot… So it really is for the greater good to just delete something like, a Nazi party or Trump's facebook. Think about the future civil unrest they are preventing by doing damage control on Trump.

When you're dealing with a brainwashed angry mob, the authoritarian hammer is bound to come slamming down one way or another.

Travel restrictions will be lifted when 65% of people are vaccinated. Can you see through this con job? Vaccination is voluntary? Do not be misled by the spring flu season in Manitoba. People discard their winter clothes with the first few warm days at the end of April and catch flu when they are not dressed properly for cold weather that has not yet ended.

Thumbs up if global should be canceled

J Mojo May 26, 2021 - 8:57 AM

Maybe , just maybe it’s time to try something different?

I pray to god you all get covid

Sandra Unterthiner May 26, 2021 - 9:10 AM

This is after it was revealed that the government is using pcr testing illegally and it was taken to court. Kelly Mullis the inventor of the pcr test explicitly said IT IS NOT FOR DETECTING INFECTIOUS DISEASES. This is a pcr test pandemic. LIARS!!

Not sure what they're on about with bc. I have a friend who lives there and she's been going to restaurants, to the gym, no mask, etc etc. Since the start of the pandemic. Seems like they never closed

Alex Sanchez May 26, 2021 - 9:14 AM

I don't think there was racism on George Floyd case. If there will be change or lessons to learn on this case on George Floyd case is do not commit a crime in order to avoid arrest by the authorities and do not resist arrest.

Brian Pallister is the Doug Fraud tyrant of Manitoba

I want a source for where tech giants amplify right wing view points. That has never ever happened

Jesse Lillico May 26, 2021 - 9:29 AM

How many times now have we seen “health system on the verge of collapse” in literally every province and yet we are all still here?

STONE May 26, 2021 - 9:34 AM

Manitoba needs much stricter restrictions

LETS THANK THE USA FOR FUNDING GAIN OF FUNCTION IN CORONA VIRUSES AND LETS THANK CHINA FOR ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN.

This COVID nonsense has gotten its attention and run its course. It’s time to move on now.

Beth Gerow May 26, 2021 - 9:52 AM

AZ has about the same blood clot reaction as the mRNA's…..MSM will NOT report on the mRNA"S because they don't want to cause "vaccine hesitancy" Europe's morbidity and mortality stats have the information…it's just hard to get. Drs who have wanted to publish the infor have been told to shut up or lose their licences to practice.

Me May 26, 2021 - 9:54 AM

Once some more deadly variant hits Canada, all this babbling about returning to normal will go down the drain, until another vaccine is developed that can put a lid on it.

Beth Gerow May 26, 2021 - 9:55 AM

Kids have virtually no reaction to getting covid. On the other hand, the mRNA vaccines are causing inflammation of the heart in children. Just saying…

Beth Gerow May 26, 2021 - 9:58 AM

The USA forced down Evo Morales' plane….which had diplomatic immunity, unlike the RyanAir plane…..when they suspected Edward Snowden of being on it. This was over Europe. The US took about 10 HOURS to search the small jet from top to bottom…needless to say, they didn't find Snowden because he wasn't there….then let the Peruvian President go on his way. It seems to be OK when the West does something like this…it's only DREADFUL when the Eastern Europeans, Russians, or Asians do exactly the same thing. So does that mean that Mr Trudeau will be putting sanctions on the USA?

There is absolutely no reason that other surgeries can’t be done still. That’s insane…

Mystery Comment May 26, 2021 - 10:28 AM

If this was a real pandemic this would have been disastrous last spring. It wasn’t. Now it’s all being made up again so people get vaccines. What a scam….

(Revelation 18:23)" And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
the greek god Hermes is the patron god of magic who protects merchants and carries the magic caduceus. The caduceus is the symbol of merchants commonly mistaken as the of Rod of Asclepius, a pagan symbol that represents pharma.
In greek Sorcery is pharmakeia aka pharmacy. strong's concordance 5331 pharmakeia. The greek translation of the old testament is called the SEPTUAGINT. The septuagint was translated in alexandria egypt around the third century bce. The Septuagint would have used the word pharmakeia not sorcery. Greek Jews and early Christian's would have known this. Even Christ Yeshua would have been aware of the greek translation of the old testament and the word pharmakeia.
The number 666 was written in the original Greek with the letters chi xi stigma (600 60 6). The Greek stigma is defined as "to 'stick'", "a mark incised or punched (for recognition of ownership)", and "mark." Or how about a vaccine ????
