And, just like magic, the 40 mule team shows up…although a couple of donkeys are MIA.

Bray away…who cares.?


CERB money wasn’t used to fund criminals. The program was a massive success and saved lives.

CERB was a great success. He Who Shall Not Be Named couldn't even build gazebos without crooks taking most of it.

Epistemic insouciance is a casual lack of concern about the facts or an indifference to whether one's statements have any basis in reality. From now on the Liberal Party of Canada will be known as the "Epistemic Insouciance Party of Canada".

The need was immediate.

"By April 2020, 5.5 million workers had been directly affected by the initial widespread COVID-19 economic shutdown, which resulted in a drop in employment of 3.0 million and an increase in COVID-related absences from work of 2.5 million." ... 5a-eng.htm

From a Toronto Star article in April of last year:

"Of the 3.4 million Canadian households who rent and whose primary source of income is wages, salaries or self-employed income, 46 per cent have less than a month’s worth of savings, according to research by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives." ... id-19.html

There was simply no time for the inevitable "delay and obstruct" tactics of extended political debate.

Of course there would be people intent on defrauding the system, there always is. But should essential aid be withheld from those in legitimate and immediate need because there are a few bad apples around ?

What is essential to this discussion, but conspicuously absent, is just how much of a problem the fraud amounted to.
There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance—that principle is contempt prior to investigation.
