I'll happily avoid these restaurants going forward.
I donít think staying open so you donít go bankrupt and flaunting food handling rules are really on the same level.

GraceLife Church is near me (I’m not proud of that) and I know several RCMP officers who will be on duty tomorrow (I am proud of them). I’ve been contacting some of them today to wish them well and safety. They appreciate the support they’re getting from reasonable people. I hope it doesn’t get ugly but they know how to handle themselves.

How do they(your police connections) truly feel about having to be there for the enforcement? I am genuinely curious. As well, are the members and the pastor just dead set against any type of restrictions in regards to the number of people allowed inside? I just don’t know enough about the uproar they are having.

They want to do their jobs but don’t know what will happen and if there’ll be violent confrontations. They’re nervous for their safety and that of the public. The don’t want to make the news as a spectacle. They’ve had anger expressed toward them but some kind words, too.

While true many of the rule breakers are also in the downplay the pandemic, anti mask, just the flu group.

If it was really just about money I have a lot more sympathy then if they join other destructive behaviours

I think in many cases that is people engaging in confirmation bias, and trying to justify their actions as "right" as opposed to being seen as greedy.

I agree with you though - I have more sympathy for someone struggling to provide for their family than someone who is opting out of rational thought.

Benny's Breakfast Bar gets fines...patrons chant "Nazi's out" at AHS/CPS. Embarrassing as an Albertan on several levels

Protesters at GraceLife Church have taken down some of the fence but some other protesters have put it back up. Lots of officers on the scene. Police chopper has been circled overhead for hours now. Some protesters parked on Enoch reserve land and did some vandalism, but band members have barricaded in their vehicles.

They think they are successfully forcing the gov't to do what they want. An acquaintance is up there and posting some article the government is rescinding orders, etc. etc. I don't pay much attention to the links he posts.

This sounds like the timeless rumour in every province where the drinking age is above 19 that theyíre going to change it to 18 ďthis year!!Ē, only this year is every year & once someone turns 19, unsurprisingly... they no longer care.

Andrew from All Gas No Brakes has a new YouTube channel due to a contract screwup. It’s still the same great coverage of morons though.



YouTube took his video down. Morons.

According to someone on one of the Lethbridge Roast & Toast Facebook groups, there are some people who went down to the AHS site for vaccinations in Lethbridge and were harassing the people who are going in for vaccines all weekend. They kept their distance and used a bullhorn. They had signs, including Trump 2020...

Maybe I should go to the eye doctor now, I worried I caused permanent damage with an extreme eye roll.

We cannot allow government imposed restrictions to dictate how we worship and interact as families in contradiction to the commandments of the King of all kings, the Lord Jesus Christ. We honor you and pray for you, but we must obey God when you ask us to forsake what He has commanded.

Besides the 20 churches full and publicly open, at least that many are quietly meeting without following the latest health orders. I hear of growing unrest in other churches as consciences are calling people to worship the Lord in freedom, according to His word.

Whether publicly open or not, our desire is to please our Lord first and foremost and not dictate the conscience of people for a virus with a high recovery rate that only affects a small portion of our population.
I think this Pastor was on the CBC Eye Opener this morning.

Yes I read that to. What I do know is that on Saturday (for the last few Saturdays now actually) there is a group of crazies that protests along Mayor Magrath Dr. I've seen and heard them while golfing at Henderson. This past Saturday, one guy with a bullhorn was driving around the Henderson lake block, in his Ram shouting some non sense. I thought I heard the bullhorn noise coming out of the Exhibition (which is a vaccination center) parking lot while playing hole 7 or 8, but couldn't see anything. Clown show.

They drove around town a couple months ago with semi-trucks blasting their horns, holding up traffic, and waiving their flags and signs. It is really infuriating how arrogant they are and how sure they are of their message, which is based on lies and fear mongering, yet they accuse anyone else to be scared.

The "Angry Albertan" on Facebook is broadcasting some press conference (LOL) with Dr. Roger Hodkinson, and Dr. Dennis Modry.

One of which isn't even a doctor. The other is some pathologist masquerading as the "chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada." (he isn't) but it sure hasn't stopped him from spouting off garbage for his 8 seconds of fame.

I'm going to see how long it takes before I get blocked from making comments hahahahaha

It's amazing how irresponsible people with a platform can be though. I guess if you dig deep enough you can find anyone to say anything these days.
