total bs…

How about this?

“It's time opioid drug companies take responsibility for the human and financial toll their products have taken on so many families across British Columbia,” said David Eby, Attorney General.



More than 40 opioid manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors are named as defendants.

I am confused. The BC government blames opioid manufacturers for the toll their products have taken on British Columbians but then establishes "safe consumption sites" ? So is using opioids bad or good?

It’s bad, dying from using them is worse.

These unvaccinated guys win everything now.

 

 

 

 

 

Novak Djokovic beats Stefanos Tsitsipas to win 10th Australian Open title and record-equaling 22nd grand slam

Djokovic last lost at the Australian Open in 2018, a winning streak that spans 28 matches. At this tournament, he only lost one set.

When they're not having heart attacks on the field?

huh? Are there examples of unvaccinated athletes having heart attacks on the field?

 

I thought it was the vaccinated athletes who were dropping like flies on the sports fields.

I believe there are no widespread reports of the unvaccinated having heart attacks on the field.

 

But it also would not be right to characterize recent reports as "dropping like flies".   It's still incredibly rare and it has not been shown that there is any pick-up since covid or since covid vaccines.

Wikipedia has a list of notable cases here: https://en.wikipedia...ath_of_athletes

Sudden cardiac issues in athletes are not new -  the Harper government put defibrillators in arenas across Canada in the early 2010s, for example. 

 

I wonder if it just seems like it's happening more because more people are paying attention to it? Or have the numbers actually changed since 2019?

And today there has never been more video, and more rapid dissemination and amplification of the news.

Exactly!

I’ve also heard people say myocarditis didn’t exist before COVID-19 just because they’ve never heard of it before - even though the term has been around for decades. And guess what has long been known to be one of the causes of myocarditis? Respiratory illnesses!!! Makes me wonder if it’s a potential side effect of the body’s immune response to the virus, which might explain why it’s being reported in both the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

Is this the first time a Canadian province has (indirectly) acknowledged natural immunity?

Nope.  

 

Where can I sign up for natural HIV immunity too?  Do I just go and get infected with a deadly virus to build up my protection?

Because it doesn't fit the upside-down flag wavers narrative?

 

Ok, how about this - why are so many kids (in pre-covid times) getting colds and flu if they're constantly exposed building up natural immunity?

You really think HIV and respiratory viruses are similar?

Because they are children and that is how immunity develops.
