    the progessive Conservative party (an oxymoron ?) was the long time right in Canada, other than being kinda like that boring uncle at a party they were a fiscaly responsible, established, reasonable alternative and so they formed governments

    " In 2003, the Canadian Alliance and the Progressive Conservatives merged, forming the Conservative Party of Canada.[8] The unified Conservative Party claims to generally favour lower taxes, small government, more transfer of federal government powers to the provinces modeled after the Meech Lake Accord and a tougher stand on "law and order" issues. "

    thats from wiki ^^ what wiki doesnt add is there were only 2 progressive conservative MP's the rest of the appliance party was full of whacko nut job religious fanatics compared to yer average Canadian, Stephen Harper tried to fuck up and change Canada ( to look more like America) even changed the name to " the Harper government " but he failed cuz Candians are liberals, are not americans and so Trudeau has had 2 terms.

    At this point the cons are rife with more religious whacko nut jobs many of whom have run to lead the party, that shit does not play up here like it does down there, SO the Cons are lashing out, the failed leader Andrew Sheer is about to be replaced so the cONS are virtualy a leaderless party at this point and

    Trudeau will probably get a 3rd term becuz he is giving away SO MUCH MONEY !!!

    I think Canada could have responded faster which could be said about every government with exception of USA cuz we are still not sure if they had a response

    BUT once Canada got rolling it was OK

    Biba, the best restaurant in Sacramento, has closed for good. 34 years in business. Upscale Italian. Biba the owner passed away a few months ago but the family intended to keep it running, until the Covid happened. We didn't eat there enough, maybe a dozen times over the years, we mostly eat downscale when we go out, but I was always looking for an excuse to go. Another woulda, shoulda, coulda. Obviously, not nearly as important as the death of one homeless person from the virus, but still sad.

    On a more serious note--I'm good with letting a lot of old people die to save the economy but it really is a miserable way to go, slowly suffocating, struggling to breath, alone with no family visiting. The solution--euthanize the old people before they get the Covid.

    We have the flags at half mast--mine has also been upside down since Nov 2016. If Trump gets the Covid and dies, can we raise them back up?

    This just in, Churches are now deemed "essential" by the President, and if the Governors don't let the churches open, then he will "overrule" them.

    She was indeed. Sadly, she had dementia towards the end of her life, although she continued to come in to the restaurant almost til the end.
    A lot of the waiters were older people from Italy, prfessionals, not the usual 20 something waiting tables until something better comes along.
    The lasagna was famous--only served 2 nights per week. I promised myself I would try it--the promise is broken. I have a couple of her cookbooks, maybe the recipe is in there although it won't be the same.

    Pretty dry around here, trees finally started leaf out this week, still stick season above 2200'. Maine under a fire warning and I suspect we will be as well before the next front brings some water Wednesday.

    ....
    Just to add the Conservatives have had a hard go keeping a tent large enough to be electable without the tent being so large that they can't get along and split apart . Happened Federally and in Alberta. The social conservatives and right to lifers have no where else to go but end up being turds in the punch bowl from them.

    I made it through a third of that.

    It looks just like the US in that states with democratic governors are assaulted with claims that they "didn't do enough" while at the same time the right wing complains about their freedumbs being confiscated and how they can't be forced to wear masks, etc.

    Highlighting the fact that Trudeau's govt didn't turn the tap off completely from travel to China can't alter the fact that transmission became widespread due to visitors from the states.

    How about Derek Sloan a pretender to the party leadership, calling for the resignation of teresa tam the top doc on the pandemic response federaly cuz she was born in Hong Kong, he is also a 7th day adventist minister, gun nut, openly anti abortion/lets appeal abortion laws. Or homo phobic stuff from former Harper-era deputy Richard Decarie?

    Cuz up here those ultra conservative whacko qualities are a red flag for the average canadian, so what doesnt get them anywhere up here would qualify them to be a vice pres down thar, with 10 minutes of goggle I could find other MP's with the same optics problems, so all that bagage is what the Cons need to try and distance themselves from if they want to form the government of Canada

    Erin O'toole is probably the least fucked up of the pretenders to the throne and to make that vid is his job cuz he is the foreign affairs critic AND he speaks fluent french which is very important to get elected in a country with 2 official languages, peter mackay never bothered to learn during all his years in gov,

    well sure !

    I duno if you are Canadian but its different up here, we look at politicians with a healthy disdain which is a test of intelligence

    Reffering to the PM or premier as " Mr " yadayada is never used, its a last name basis so trudeau or sheer or singh or Hoprgan or wtf is fine

    and trudeau isnt the PM cuz Canadians voted FOR him instead we didnt vote for sheer and before him we didnt vote for harper

    According to a CBC show where they interviewed the gallup poll guy in all the years running the same poll Canadians polled for the most part like northern yurpeans while Americans just got more conservative

    Quite a few Washington counties have already entered "phase 2" of reopening which allows things like barber shops to open and limited in-store dining, but doesn't look like King County (Seattle, Bellevue) is going to get there by June 1st, which was the target. One of the requirements is less than 10 new COVID-10 cases per 100,000 residents over a 14 day period and King currently sits at 39. The worst county in the state is Yakima with 408. They've got a long road ahead.
