I prepared a short update on the current dreadful, never seen in anyone’s life, pandemic.
The Province May 27, 2020
B.C. reported no COVID-19 deaths on Tuesday 161* people have died from COVID-19 in B.C. since January. There are 258 active cases in the province, with 37 people in a hospital, including seven in intensive care.
Delta Optimist May 27, 2020
B.C. has seen an increase in illicit drug deaths since 2018 – at an average rate of 3.2 people dying per day, meaning that this year has died 460 people. Neither active cases nor people in a hospital have not been reported.
*COVID-19 deaths are not only exaggerated but almost 70% of them have been in nursing or long-term care homes.
Total yearly death in BC for all reasons is 38 000 per year which means that there is 103 death per day in BC. There is just 1 (one) death per day COVID-19 death yet we are facing a “pandemic” which is impacting total daily death in BC by 1% or so, in other words, deaths from this “pandemic” are statistically insignificant.
There is not an iota of doubt that the cure is much deadlier and with so many lifelong consequences than the disease itself. Shouldn’t the government care more for young people dying at the 300% rate higher than those infected by the COVID-19?
But, as always, there is a silver lining on each dark cloud. The long-running rivalry between the two services — public versus private — has been settled by COVID-19. Why would anyone risk the dangers and uncertainty of free enterprise when they could have the safety and security of a large and ever-expanding government? In Canada, real capitalism means working for the government. All the cool kids do.
- Paid sick leave.
- Paid family days.
- Paid training and upgrading.
- Scholarships for families.
- Full benefits entirely covered by the government.
- Full defined benefit pension guaranteed by the taxpayer.
- Job security.
- Vacation time beyond that required by law.
- Mental health days.
- Pay exceeding the private sector.
- Company vehicle.
- Paid travel.
- Expense accounts.
The public sector is a leach on private companies and its employees who are the source of tax contributions to the government treasure. Taxing hard-working people is the only reason that the government can afford all these luxuries for all the politicians and public sector employees – servants.
