Here’s one of those CBC interviews with experts that I feel sure they wish they never aired. This is word-for-word:

April 3 2020
CBC anchor Andrew Nichols:
… Following pressure from the Trump Administration on the manufacturer 3M to stop exporting these N95 masks to other countries including Canada. What’s your reaction to that?

Dr. Michael Gardam, Chief of Staff, Humber River Hospital:
Yeah that news story is very frustrating for me personally, I mean I’ve been involved with dealing with infectious disease outbreaks like this since SARS, and during SARS, respirators were held back, during H1N1 the U.S. closed their borders to respirators, during the Ebola crisis they did the same thing. This is not the first time they’ve done this, and there have been calls for literally over a decade saying we have to have local manufacturing of some really important medical equipment, because when you get things like this, countries close their borders and they want to use the equipment for themselves. So, this is a very frustrating topic for me personally and I hope to goodness that we actually do something about it this time.

CBC ended the interview at this point, even though the good doctor was just getting going on something of vital importance and interest.

SARS (February 2003): G.W. Bush.
H1N1 (January 2009 to August 2010): B.H.Obama.
Ebola (2014): B.H. Obama.

If CBC journalists are so concerned about Trump and his position on 3M exporting medical equipment to Canada even though they need it, Barack Obama’s got more time on his hands than Dr. Gardam. Maybe the CBC should interview him about this (and make sure to visibly sneer when uttering his name as they do Trump).

Of course in addition to governments’ failures to its citizens with regard to inspiring the local manufacture of goods Canada needs — literally for our survival — governments at every level have also failed to even secure — buy — adequate pandemic-level supplies from the Americans and Chinese and God-knows who else Canada totally relies on — again,  because Canada manufactures none of it. (Canada still imports oilfrom nutbar countries — even though we do have it here, and we refuse to build pipelines to ensure our own security and self-sufficiency. This is a massive government fail. Epic. Dangerous.)

None of the facts, the science, or the evidence — things the liberals and the left pretend to hold as sacred — will stop the idiot media and other politicians (see what I did there?) from trying to blame Trump anyway. Look at this tweet thread I did this morning:

Ford hasn’t been premier for very long so maybe he didn’t have time to get to his very most basic job — ensuring the health, safety, and security of Ontarians — yet. I can see him being pissed-off with other Canadians governments before him. But to be “disappointed” with Trump? This does not compute. It’s blame-shifting — to Trump of all people. Classic of the left and its media division.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

Dr. Gardam certainly revealed that truth, in case you needed an expert to reveal that proof to you (you didn’t).

And then for dessert, this:

And this:

And just this one more (there’s even more at my Twitter account!):

(Nobody answered my question.)
