I hope you never need medical attention.
Same can be said for those contracting the virus that are double vaccinated. Yet , the vaccinated are still getting sick and transmitting the virus. There is a reason why we have the most cases and the most vaxxed in the country. It is not a coincidence at all. Wake up

Case in point is the Penticton editor of the Daily Courier commenting on Wednesday's protest outside Kelowna General Hospital.
James Miller refers to a "an illegal protest";mobs; goons.
Miller, whose talents really lie in writing columns about"rock stars that died too soon"goes on to suggest: "our original thoughts were to ignore them"Don't give them fame or notoriety"
Some might call this selective editing or censorship.
What did the paper do? It highlighted an anti protester.Miller also suggested "the rally put people in danger and should have been shut down"
A few thoughts:
There was a protest rally in Kerry park Saturday. No media coverage, in spite of an anti protester being apprehended by police.
Also, Maxine Bernier who will be speaking today is not mentioned. Bernier of course speaks outside the norm in Canadian politics.
Finally, Anti abortionists have been parading outside KGH for 15 years, Displaying peculiar signs, blocking sidewalks.
Their parade unless I missed it, did not upset the health workers inside.
And, certainly not a peep from our politicians.
its pretty clear all news media see it one way. the vaccine way, they are to :cuss: to see it does more harm than good

There is an easy solution, start your iwn media company, then report mainly on what you like..
All the people from all walks of life , should not have a problem pulling that task off, after all, you have the brainpower and rssources behind you right.?
Then you can concentrate on issues you feel are of utmost importance and relevance.. :smt045
I'd like to help You OUT,

I'm just saying you don't believe in science you shouldn't come to the hospital wasting resources. Not threatening at all. More of an opinion. Or maybe you should have "payed" more attention in school.

Now I don't know about the blood clots , seizures , myocarditis and all the other "science" that's being ignored ... All this coming from a wet behind the ears kid fresh out of school . Or as they call them on the floor , " FRESH MEAT "
I payed attention in High school....But I didn't need too .

Not us young couple who tip 20-25% for the last years going out of way to help small businesses survive as they put it. Now we can’t support at all as we are not going to be partaking in the passport exp. just thought that was hilarious. Unfortunately will never support that business again and have been regulars there for over 5 years
Ummm... they don't want your business. That's exactly the point. You're not as important as you think you are.

Your tip doesn't even remotely make up for you prolonging the pandemic by not getting vaccinated. Don't for a second think you can buy your way out of being selfish and entitled with a meal tip.

There are more than enough of us who got vaccinated to keep businesses like this going. Thanks for coming out.

The point is to reduce hospitalization to reduce the burden on the Healthcare system...

Hey , Carmelina it's a SICK care system you work in ..

If it were a HEALTH care system , our govt's and media would be looking at and promoting ways to PREVENT getting sick and going to the hospital ...

Sadly , the media promote what sells , and what sells is fear.. Not health .

There already are many independent media sites. Sadly, when they write a story with a different opinion of that of the MSM these media outlets are labelled extreme right wing, spreading misinformation by the fact checkers.
Funny thing is, Ive yet to see a fact checker site that will actually let you debate, and comment on their fact checks. You just have to accept it as it is written with no questions asked. And of course, that's exactly what many do.

I dont know what happened at the hospital, but I do know KGH wasnt the only hospital where protests were held that day. Contrary to what is being told, we know there are still some staff that dont want the jab.
Right or wrong, thats why they held the protests where they held them, in support of those workers. Maybe they should just let folks decide for themselves what they want to inject into their bodies.
Staff were once labelled as hero's, and have been dealing with patients since the start without the vaccine. Now its take it or else.

So were the hospitals overwhelmed when 100% of people were not vaccinated?
How will it happen when over 70% are vaccinated?

I imagine many of the protesters also thought KGH was a bad location but went anyway. Bit ironic when freedom is what they claim to be protesting for when all they demonstrated is that they're sycophantic servants to the leaders of the plague rats.

Yeah .. but not with ( ehem) Covid patients .. They were already overwhelmed with the druggies and opiod victims , mental health cases , "gansta" stuff , car accidents , generous vacation time leaving low staff levels and of course the hypochondriacs with snotty nose ..

Oh and back then , there was a thing called the flu ..... But that seems to have disappeared
