Oops.  Odd.  The couple could have gone for a few runs around the Seawall at Stanley Park to boost their immunity systems.

Canadian mogul fined after getting Covid vaccine meant for Indigenous residents
According to officials, Rodney and Ekaterina Baker travelled by chartered plane to Beaver Creek, a community of 100 in Canada’s Yukon territory, where a mobile team was administering the Moderna vaccine to residents. Among those slated for the vaccine were elderly members of the White River First Nation.

At the mobile clinic, the Bakers claimed to be workers at a local motel, according to reporting by the Yukon News.

But after the couple asked for a ride to the airport and the hotel confirmed they weren’t employees, staff with the mobile clinic called enforcement officers.

After receiving the tip, enforcement officers searched for the couple at their quarantine location in Whitehorse, but found they had already left. They were discovered at the airport, preparing to fly back to Vancouver. (...)

Until resigning Sunday, Rodney Baker was head of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, which runs racetracks and casinos across the country. His total annual compensation in 2019 was C$10.6m, according to the Yukon News.

2 Years After Legalizing Cannabis, Has Canada Kept Its Promises? -NYT
Legal pot has made Canadian justice a little fairer, with “heavily racialized” arrests for possession mostly ending. But vows on amnesty, illicit sales and Indigenous inclusion are works in progress.


It is a good piece and certainly worth reading.   I did come across what I perceive as the fruit of biased op-ed journalism though.

Can you read the article and guess?

Ms. Payette, a former astronaut, was said in some news accounts to have quizzed employees about the distance between celestial bodies. Several staff members in her office have quit or gone on extended leaves.

If you are familiar with the head set of uniformed Canadian soldiers, you would better understand the nature of my comment which was intended to be as insulting as you can possibly imagine.

I might lose my fellow travelling companion status of the RC church for saying this but here goes:

I bet the CAFs clean up their act before the RC church does.

13 deadly hours

Over 13 hours, a man disguised as a Mountie travelled nearly 200 kilometres through Nova Scotia, killing 22 people. The Fifth Estate explores what the RCMP knew about the gunman that night, how they remained one step behind and why the public was left in the dark.
