Good grief this event is held in the great outdoors. Any runner that is not feeling well will likely forget the race altogether. Others are not at any real risk as it is outdoors. Space runners a bit at the start and all will be well.

Want to cancel because you are expecting a foot of snow? Great, but over fear of a virus?? Seriously this is cold and flu season if you are going to be terrified of virii then schedule this at some other time of the year regardless of whether the Lamestream is saying; "The sky is falling!"


In an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19, The Runners Soul Moonlight Run has been cancelled.

The 2020 race was scheduled to take place March 21.

“In light of (Thursday’s) announcement by the Alberta government we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Moonlight Run scheduled for March 21,” said race organizer Shawn Pinder in a release Thursday.

For people interested in data, the following site frequently updates. The updates are ahead of national updates in the U.S. and Canada because they appear to be using state and province data, but it's worth double-checking with a one day lag.

Note that the U.S. has reported 7.5 cases per million people compared to 6 in Canada despite us having a much higher test rate. For example, according to the CDC the U.S. has run about 13,000 tests, or closer to 20,000 with the data lag, while Ontario has run 7,000 tests. CDC data may not include private labs, which will become an increasing share going forward.

U.S. tests per million, using my 20,000 guesstimate: 61
Ontario tests per million: 479

They Should Build A Big, Beautiful Wall


Mexico frets about U.S. coronavirus spread, could restrict border

To the dismay of Progs & NeverTrumpers (BIRM) everywhere...



And, from the comments:


James Woods

But to be safe, let’s close the border to any nation, even our dear friends in Canada, if they are not willing to restrict flights from China until the #Wuhan virus is conquered.
100% agreed.

A video worth watching from an expert at the World Health Organization, very short but very important.

Pardon the strong language, but in this case, it is appropriate for hoarders.

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste


Naughty, naughty Nancy Pelosi tried to slip a pro-abortion amendment into the Corona virus bill:
Pelosi attempted to secure a funding stream of up to $1 billion for reimbursing laboratory claims. According to White House officials who spoke with the Daily Caller, that provision would establish a precedent under which health claims for all procedures, including abortion, could be reimbursed with federal funds. That precedent would render the Hyde Amendment, which blocks taxpayer funding for abortion clinics, obsolete.

Pelosi resisted efforts by Democrats to end the Hyde Amendment in recent months, with progressives being forced to abandon an attempt to “ensure” abortion coverage for people using federal health programs as part of a $190 billion budget bill passed in July.
Of course, the lyin’ Left has been trying to spin this 180 degrees!
Bold mine.

Good ol' Ma Jones. The Bigot will be here shortly to defend them...

About those extra measures...

Your Government Is Here For You


I came back yesterday from Dubai airport to Pearson there were zero measures. This tweet is a lie.

Adam Radwinski is “baffled”.

@PhdParody: Rumours from the water cooler … things are bad when I hear about sick politicians in Canada from Chinese officials before it’s released in Canada…talk about a leaky ship.
