"However, the fundamental issue that must be decided is whether a green socialism is to be attained by incremental modification of capitalism and its state, or the taking of power by the working class.

Boosters shots are critical, even for those who have tested positive.

Despite researchers’ efforts to understand SARS-CoV-2, the virus continues to hold many secrets. As much as we’ve tried to shoehorn it into our thinking about how respiratory viruses work, it will simply not comply.

"One of the biggest stories in the country right now is the blowback Ottawa is getting from the provinces over policies with high public support (like oil and gas emissions cap). Fossil fuel captured provinces are at war over climate policy."  John Woodside - Twitter
