Liberals worry Conservative push for documents could slow COVID-19 response

Health Minister Patty Hajdu says the government will provide documents to the opposition related to its COVID-19 response, but she’s concerned gathering that information will take time away from public servants working to address the second wave of the pandemic.

    Reporter you are pushing. Minister is right, you have priorities in any job. Documents are at very bottom.

    Our leaders have failed us, they choked; then let a foreign power, the UN, take over our Country, to forcibly change our laws; putting every one of us in mortal danger; not from some manageable and common virus; but from our own Government, who have bent the knee
    Be a sheep, or a wolf. Choose wisely, see you at dinner….

    OLD LIONS…are still….LIONS
    There is a line, when crossed; there will be no retreat, there will be no quarter, there will be no mercy. The life of the individual, means little if their very way of life has been taken by acts of sedition, acts of treason, and ultimately acts of war commited against the population of their country.

    Internment is an Act of War against the people. Internment is now happening in Quebec, and Ontario. To all of you who know they are Canadian; this is an Act of War against us, imposed under circumstances designed to generate fear, uncertainty, and division among us.

    There is no reason for any of this, in fact there never was. This was not a pandemic, there was no real threat, as those who released this insanity, had a plan. It started with The Panic Activation Test・to see if the population of the planet was now conditioned well enough for the bigger plan to succeed. I cite…TOILET PAPER

    The line is crossed; by a foreign power, the UN; actions have been taken against the population of Canada, that has seen our entire civilization completely destroyed, for political purpose; based on a demonstrably false threat, imposed on us by an act of war against the entire Planet, using a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
    Our broadcast networks, CBC (CNN NORTH) CTV, all of the sub channels, are ventriloquist dummies, all sitting with someones hand up their butt, to make them say what is required; or lose your job, your wife, your kids, your house; in many cases, reporters of long standing losing pensions as they were terminated for Insubordination; the result of refusing to lie to the public. There is no going back. Our Government has been overthrown. We have no say in our future, as these seditious, cowardly, politicians have given it away.

    There seemed to be a consensus on the Power Panel that the Conservative push for documents on the billions of dollars of COVID-related health spending was a "fishing expedition", and not just the Official Opposition doing its job in overseeing massive government spending. Let's face it, Peking Patty has been an incompetent Health Minister, sending some of our PPE equipment to China, encouraging people to support Chinese food restaurants in Chinatown well into February, pooh-poohing the need for border closures. Why would anyone take it for granted that all COVID-related health spending by her department was appropriate?

    Just give them the documents. How hard could that be? Oh… you mean you want to censor, edit, redact, etc all of the documents for "security reasons" or something before handing them over.

    The Liberals are only worried about evidence of their corruptions coming to light.

    The government has secured 358 million doses of a yet not developed vaccine?? What the hell…what’s the cost of that? A billion dollars or so? You know, if you didn’t know better, it wouldn’t be hard to surmise that this whole Covid debacle is all in an effort to allow the pharmaceutical industry to rob the treasury of every last cent they/we have. (March 1 2020…There’s a very concerning coronavirus that has appeared in China. Although not much is know at this time one thing is for sure. Life will not go back to normal until there’s a vaccine.) Boom, you’ve just been marketed at Jack.
