Brutal. Children literally follow rules better than some of these clowns.

A special shout out to Van Morrison for ongoing sustained moronic behaviour.
Quote:
Van Morrison will challenge the Northern Irish government in court over its “blanket ban” on live music in licensed venues arising from coronavirus restrictions, his lawyer said on Tuesday.Solicitor Joe Rice said the Northern Irish singer-songwriter, who has released several protest songs against Covid-19 rules in recent months, will ask the high court in Belfast to review the policy.
“We will be seeking leave for judicial review to challenge the blanket ban on live music in licensed premises in Northern Ireland,” Rice said. “We’re not aware of any credible scientific or medical evidence to justify this particular blanket ban … and we’re going to challenge this in the high court.”

The UK, the country worst-hit in Europe by the virus, is struggling with its third and deadliest wave, blamed on a new strain believed to be highly infectious.

Devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which have responsibility for health policy, have all imposed strict lockdown measures at various stages of the health crisis.
The Northern Irish executive in Belfast has introduced regulations that prohibit live music in indoor licensed venues in Northern Ireland.
All hospitality and entertainment venues are closed as part of a six-week lockdown, but Morrison is eager to challenge the rules for when they reopen.
Rice noted that the singer had been able to perform in England several times late last year before the British government tightened rules there.
He said he expected the case to be heard at the high court within “weeks”.
Morrison was taking the action “on behalf of the thousands of musicians, artists, venues and those involved in the live music industry”, Rice said
has stirred controversy during the pandemic, last August reportedly urging people to “fight the pseudoscience” around Covid-19.
A month later he released at two-week intervals a trio of new tracks – named Born To Be Free, As I Walked Out, and No More Lockdown – containing controversial lyrics.
They included: “No more government overreach / No more fascist bullies / Disturbing our peace” as well as “No more taking of our freedom / And our God-given rights / Pretending it’s for our safety / When it’s really to enslave.”

NI Health minister responds in an op-ed in Rolling Stone.
Quote:
His words will give great comfort to the conspiracy theorists. The tin foil hat brigade who crusade against masks and vaccines and think this is all a huge global plot to remove freedoms.
Way to tarnish your legacy.

Probably John Carpay? Isn't he the big lawyer that puts together all those rallies downtown?

What was the legal weight of this "pin"? is it associated with an association/professional body that exempts him?

He left his card, so no it's not him. Just a guy who enjoys trying to throw his weight around.

Probably nothing. It said "I'm Exempt" along with some smaller writing underneath, however I didn't get close enough to read what else was on it. I've seen/heard of these before, just people trying to skirt the rules because they inconvenience them.

Ok, to fuel ONLY my own curiosity because I know exactly two lawyers who would do this, can you provide his first name? Or even initials?

You can PM it to me if you don't feel like making it public, I'm just curious.

You can get a blue or green one on Amazon.
https://www.amazon.ca/MEDICALLY-EXEM.../dp/B08FR7H2RF

Wouldn't it be considered illegal to represent oneself as being exempt from wearing a mask in order to circumvent the law based on absolutely nothing?

You've got his card. Fire him a nice email. Asking if he could provide further info regarding his exemption (who provided him with it) so that you can update your records so that he's not inconvenienced again.

Itís the perfect hiding spot for #######s, because you canít ask that question. Or at least, they donít have to answer it.

I wonder if I can get one of those printed on a mask.

The former president and CEO of a Canadian casino company and his wife are the couple accused of breaking Yukon COVID-19 rules and chartering a plane to the small community of Beaver Creek to receive doses of the Moderna vaccine.

Rodney Baker, a 55-year-old who resigned from the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation on Sunday, and Ekaterina Baker, a 32-year-old aspiring actress, both received tickets at the Whitehorse airport on Jan. 21, according to court records.
Quote:
Rodney Baker, who also goes by Rod, was appointed president of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation in 2010 and then CEO in 2011. The corporation owns more than 20 casinos in British Columbia, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and, last year, became embroiled in an inquiry looking into allegations of corruption and money-laundering in B.C. casinos.
Quote:
Ekaterina Baker, meanwhile, is a Russian-born actress who, according to her IMDB page, appeared in a handful of films last year.

Sounds like they weren't caught until after getting the vaccine.

What a ****ing moron. According to this article, the guy made $10M a year at his job (a job which he has now resigned from, presumably due to this):

https://www.yukon-news.com/news/form...TqZ5D21E8Vz4TM

You have that kind of money at your disposal, and the best option you can come up with is to fly to a remote community in the Yukon and pretend to be motel staff? What an idiot.

I just can't believe this. Travelling to a remote Indigenous community and violating isolation rules so you can jump the line for the vaccine. This is a special type of horrible person. It reminds me of George pushing the old ladies out of the way and onto the ground so he can escape the fire.
