1. The presser of the Ontario MPP who chose to be removed from the Conservative party caucus for Ontario than accept an ultimatum on taking an experimental gene therapy.
2. Australia plans a massive protest, country wide tomorrow. I hope its 100X larger than it would have been, had they not made protest illegal.
The links, predictably, which detailed the protests, seem not to load now. It was adelaidefreedomrally.com but I can’t even get the link to go on the page right.
3. Biden says things, his staff try to sweep up the broken glass from it.
The president was interviewed by ABC News and was asked about how other countries—in particular Taiwan—should view the U.S. pullout from Afghanistan. Many asked if the U.S. could be viewed as a reliable ally.
Reuters pointed out that Biden said in response, “We have made—kept every commitment. We made a sacred commitment to Article 5 that if, in fact, anyone were to invade or take action against our NATO allies, we would respond. Same with Japan, same with South Korea, same with Taiwan. It’s not even comparable to talk about.”
The comment was seen by some as a change in posture by the U.S. on the issue, but a senior official from the Biden administration told Reuters that the policy has “not changed.” Analysts told the outlet it appeared Biden had misspoken. The White House did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

Burial costs will now be covered by Ottawa for individuals killed by federally approved vaccines.
According to Blacklock’s Reporter, the department of health will pick up the tab and says the new program “addresses a longstanding gap in Canada’s national immunization programming by providing a timely, no-fault financial support mechanism for all people in Canada, in rare instances where they are seriously and permanently injured performing a public good, being immunized.”
A briefing note from the department says vaccine injuries are rare but do happen.
The department has budgeted $75 million for all claims but said it was unclear how many submissions there could be. Management of the program is contracted to RCGT Consulting.

5. France takes a small step back: Gironde: “suspended” operation for the health pass in the form of a “bracelet”
A few hours after its installation, the wristband device acting as a health pass to facilitate entry into bars and restaurants in Gironde was suspended. The contours of the operation must indeed be clarified.

A few hours after its installation, the wristband device serving as a health pass to facilitate entry into bars and restaurants in Gironde was suspended.
The contours of the operation must indeed be clarified.
The device of a bracelet serving as a health pass to facilitate entry into bars and restaurants in Gironde, was “suspended” this Thursday in order to “clarify the contours of the operation”, announced the UMIH-33 . The operation which had started Wednesday, “is suspended”, indicated Laurent Tournier, president of the Union of trades and industry of the departmental hotel trade.
“I want this operation to be calm. However, it was misinterpreted in the comments” after press articles, Tournier said.
“The bracelet does not replace the health pass. The bracelet is a visible support for the health pass”, he stressed, “it is an additional means for our regular customers, already checked several times, to either identified more clearly. But that does not exempt our customers from having the health pass, “he insisted.
Thank you all who contributed to this joint effort in any way this week.
