As the City of Charlottetown looks to Halifax for guidance on how to deal with tent encampments, a reminder that Halifax has chosen violence against those living in tents: independent.co.uk/news/world… #peipoli

Ex-premier Mike Harris & his wife.. THANK YOU for ur service. (Now their for-profit Agency can hire these IENs and contract them to #Ontario #hospitals @$110hr (2x #RN public sector wage + +) #healthcare #onpoli @fordnation #cdnpoli hello @jyduclos
The registration of IENs is up 132% compared to this time last year. The registration of new nurses with the knowledge, skills & judgement to practice safely, whether trained in Canada or abroad, is core to our mandate & part of ongoing efforts to modernize applicant assessment

Perhaps bring back the mask mandate - I am not going until it is in place. It appears others felt the same way.

In three yrs this #solar installation at a high school in Arkansas turned the district budget from a $250K deficit to a $1.8 million surplus and they're using the surplus to pay teachers more. End oil fueled war. We have the solutions. #ActOnClimate #ClimateAction #climate

Establishment hit pieces now coming thick and fast: Buzzfeed going after Dr Denise for publicising the fact that monkeypox can get into the animal reservoir via infected shit in the sewers: there's nothing controversial about that statement at all. buzzfeednews.com/article/ste…

Replying to @EnemyInAState
Larry Brilliant, one of the epidemiologists who led the campaign to eradicate smallpox, shares my concerns that monkeypox will become endemic in the urban rodent population. 🤷‍♀️wired.com/story/larry-brilli…

No, this is bullshit. In Ontario, where the crisis is arguably worst, the provincial government UNDERSPENT its own budget last year by $7 billion. One thing with @TomPark1n: facts never spoil ideology.
Trudeau’s refusal to even consider a new health care funding deal with premiers is of course a significant contribution to the understaffing crisis hospitals are experiencing

Doug's cap on #RN wages in #Bill124, and .. ENABLING #PRIVATIZATION of #nursing in #Ontario #hospitals via for-profit Agencies (eg Mike Harris's wife's) LEADING to MAYHEM & DEATH THX Con voters. CU @ ED #cdnpoli #onpoli #leafs #Ottawa #ottnews #senators #senssickos
Due to recent Emergency Department closures in our region, The Ottawa Hospital’s Emergency Departments will likely experience higher-than-usual patient volumes, which will result in much longer wait times. [1/4]

Swine flu. Check your bingo card.
CDC has confirmed the 1st human infection of 2022 w/ a flu virus that usually spreads in pigs. The person infected had direct contact w/ pigs at an agricultural fair. Public health risk from these types of infections is low, but CDC recommends precautions: bit.ly/3zydRoc

Somehow not so dissimilar to smoker offering a cigarette to someone who has recently quit or a drinker offering a drink to a newly sober buddy, etc. Deliberate sabotage of others, for what personal gain?
Replying to @dgurdasani1
Some people really find masks & the idea of 'freedom' of choice triggering, when the choices made remind them of the risks they face. Not all of us can afford to live in denial.

My elderly mother was recently seen in ER adjacent to a patient with monkey pox on one side, children with COVID on the other side. 10 hours separated by a hanging curtain with a shared bathroom. Leadership in triaging patients with airborne infection in ER would be a start.
#adriandix Whatever happened to field hospitals, where you could segregate covid+ patients? #COVIDisAirborne

Sharing this March 2022 piece from @ShiraLurie because it so aptly describes the problems with relying on "personal responsibility": "We’re suffering from a pandemic of individualism | The Star" thestar.com/opinion/contribu…
