While I'm talking about @supriyadwivedi, actually, I'll add this: her latest column is very smart, but there's one angle to it I'd add. When this is all over, I don't think the problem facing the federal government is necessary going to be when they made key decisions. +
I think it's already clear from what we're seeing in the U.S. and Europe that COVID was in more places, in greater concentrations, than we knew. So even if we'd shut down all flights from China or some such, the ones from Iran, the U.S. and Europe still would've fucked us. +
What IS going to land heavily on the feds is how incompetent they were at enacting decisions ONCE they were made. The fact that we had Minister Blair saying all was well while provinces and cities rushed their own staff to airports to pick up dropped federal balls is damning.
