This is terrible. You had better be careful where you go and what you do.It's been an unbelievably dreadful couple of days. I feel horrendous and my sleep is interrupted. Thank goodness I have gardening - some meaningful escape - to find refuge in. It's beginning. The arrests are beginning. Several mothers were arrested here Thursday for not having 'papers', arrested in front of their crying, screaming little ones while bringing their children for playtime at their local recreation centres. This is in southern Ontario. This is monstrous.
One of the mothers that was arrested, was a police woman from my town, bringing her kids to hockey practice. They arrested her in front of her kids too.
This has never been about caring for people's health.
It's always been about tyranny and despotism.
From day one.
These two mothers were arrested in exactly the kind of facility where I go to seed swaps - buy seeds, sells seeds, and talk with other gardeners. I was aware that they would ask me to leave if I went, since I will not be getting 'papers'. I did not know that this is what they will do to me if I go. This is all totally illegal and against the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; you cannot arrest someone for trespassing in a public facility or retail outfit unless they are engaged in an activity that bears no connection to the facility itself. The police are actually breaking the law to execute these orders. This is complete totalitarianism. I need to pinch myself.
So every time I get on the computer to check the latest unfolding appalling tyranny, and start feeling very ill, I go out and buy a box of bulbs. For spring, for the future , for hope, for life that blooms in ice and snow. With each of those bulbs I put into the soil today, with a very heavy heart, I thought of all the people the world over who have suffered under communism, all the people who are going to, as this country becomes a socialist slag heap.
I'm on my 15th box of bulbs. At the rate I'm going, the vegetable garden will be full soon.
We've lost so much already in Canada. A steady erosion of freedom of speech, freedom to protect ourselves, our children, our homes, and now the freedom to have bodily autonomy. We've all been on our knees to big government for a long time, and this is the knockout punch. The one meant to finish us off, beat us into submission. If this doesn't wake Canada up, she's doomed.
I need more bulbs.
The President has made it mandatory for companies with 150+ employees for them all to be vaccinated. I'm glad that I am retired.
