the sad part is, there are those who think it’s entertaining because this thing is ‘p***ing off liberals’ but it’s just screeching for attention.

I really wish media would just ignore it.

So apparently Canada has passed the US with the number of first vaccinations, although we lag behind them for those fully vaccinated. Still, that’s pretty good progress in a fairly short amount of time.

I was looking at some world data and Canada seemed to lag behind many countries on both first shots and "fully vaccinated" (Canada 4.6% vs. US 40.2%). We're slightly ahead of the US on "at least one dose" (53.7 vs. 50.3) but the wide availability of one-dose vaccines in the US and not in Canada makes the comparison awkward.

On the world scale, Canada rates 97th place for percentage of population fully vaccinated.

given we have no real vaccine production here we are doing incredibly well. The press sure made hay over the slow start, and still Im seeing the usual sad sackery with Canada proud memes comparing us to a bunch of countries with minuscule populations, but wait for June as there are millions more doses happening and the second shots are going to really ramp up. Im due for mine in a few weeks.

This sure is a lesson is watching out for the snakes that promise tax cuts and huge health care slashes and privatizations as what happened with what vaccine production we had under mulroney.

It's unfortunate that 3 of the worst provinces with conservative premiers had to weather the similar sorts of refusals to listen to science and doctors as Trump, resulting in many more losing their lives. I think Id like to see Ford led out in handcuffs over that one.

Oh, Canada!

If this rate of vaccination continues throughout the summer, the country would have 20 per cent of its eligible population—those 12 years of age and older–fully vaccinated by early October.
Ouch!

NOTE: The tracker currently shows a low projection for full vaccination due to the low rate of second dose administration. As the rate of second doses increases each day, the projection will update. This tracker is useful for answering the question of “If we keep up today’s pace, when will we hit our targets?” but it doesn’t incorporate future events that could change the rates of vaccination.
LOL. That’s pretty pathetic man.

Ouch!

Better than nothing. And if 70% can at least get a first shot, that will offer a lot of protection. It’s going to be a challenge getting the anti-vaxxers off their asses though.

Read the rest of the article. Imagine complaining about CNN and then ha ha ha. Trying to pass this off.

LOL

It's better than nothing, but not good at all for a developed nation.

And yes, there will be a large number of people who will be vaccine-hesitant. Herd immunity is likely to occur before they can be convinced.

Not good for a developed nation, Macfury, why do you always insist on dumbing this all down to the lowest common denominator? It's overwhelmingly clear to anyone who actually reads that tabloid style nonsense that the headline, which you keep repeating in one form or another, for trolling purposes obviously, is just a low brow hook to get people to click. And there's plenty of people on social media, possibly like yourself, who are hungry for headlines such as these, something finally, that you can sink your teeth into and club Trudeau over the head, and give some validity to, whatever your sad sacked political opinion seems to be today. And post at will!! weeee!

The problem is, is all that creates is an environment that creates the us and them, someone chimes in that the premise is completely wrong (which is obvious as I said... and even the article admits it!!) and you can carry on your phoney crusade against I don't know... "socialists", or, the left. Whatever. But you're just part of the big problem yourself. While you're traipsing around social media sprinkling these feces everywhere, actually looking at any policy is tossed aside.

So great. Trudeau baaaaad. Fart. the left. damn elites takin mah money. 👏👏👏

Such policy wonkery astounds!

Always interesting to see what GT and the rest of the Kool-Aid crowd believe meets the criteria for civil discourse.

Well macfury, I wouldn't take it so personally that not everyone will agree with your chicken little clickbait crap.

You can always find some solace somewhere where someone doesn't dismantle your troll attempts.

You're in great form. Get called out for hypocrisy, and react by doubling down.

No one really knows what the hell you’re talking about.

I called macfury out for posting a clickbait article and pushing it. Now the two of you are getting upset and lashing out.

Just another day in ehmacland!

hey! Y'all hear that apparently Trump is saying he's going to be reinstated this summer? Yeah eh, "everybody" is really interested and watching the recount going on in Arizona eh?

Yeah eh send in MORE money! And Flynn says he thinks there should be a military style coup like Myanmar! oh but wink wink he didn't really uh, say that, but he did...

Meanwhile, republican states everywhere quickly passing new election laws to cheat. Because, they say they want to stop cheating, that doesn't really exist... with... cheating.

It just cracks me up to watch those trying to defend pure nonsense.

Seeing as how right Macfury was about Trump winning the election, I wonder if he’ll have anything to offer about Trump being reinstated in August. Maybe eMacMan has some ideas as well.

I think it's getting tougher for any of them to even try to defend this. That's why you'll see zero substance posts with red herrings or straw men take your pick. And Im sure there's a few more coming'. ;)
