There was an NHL game in Toronto last night. Obviously the Maple Leafs lost. But there was a twist — the premier, in an act of beneficence, announced that several hundred front-line health workers would be allowed to watch the game in person.
We have such a benevolent leader! He is so kind to us!
Well, not to us. And well, maybe it wasn’t actually him.
Here’s his announcement about it. Have you ever seen so many weird weasel-words?
So who made the decision? It’s not quite clear, is it?
I suppose this is the first deployment of the vaccine passport, isn’t it?
We know that, depending on the hospital or health unit, up to half of doctors and nurses are refusing to take the vaccine.
So you’ve got a vaccine passport exclusive sports event.
But was it really front line health workers?
That’s Barb Collins.
She’s the CEO of a hospital. She literally makes more than $600,000 a year. To run a government hospital. She’s the CEO. She’s not a frontline worker.
This is the millionaire lockdown class giving themselves a very special night out.
Yeah. You don’t really think the rules apply to them, do you?
These are the folks who ban your kids' hockey — but let NHL millionaires play for owner billionaires.
Oh — and look at this:

Got it. It’s in the national interest that they be allowed to skip the 14-day quarantine — and now to skip quarantine altogether.
We sent our own David Menzies out to the Toronto game last night.
Listen, I think they should be able to go to a game.
I just think — your kids should be allowed to play too; and you should be able to work, too.
Not just the privileged lockdown class, which even in this case, is rigging the rules so that they personally benefit.
