COVID here in Saskatchewan is horrible, and I am deeply angry -- first, at the thousands of unvaccinated-by-choice who are to blame for this mess, and second, at the politicians who pandered to them.
Saskatchewan had 460 new cases of COVID-19 to report Thursday, along with 444 recoveries and seven deaths. There are 273 COVID patients in the province's hospitals, including 58 in ICUs.https://t.co/DYD2Too4Ws— 650 CKOM (@CKOMNews) September 23, 2021
#yqr cardiologist Dr. Andrea Lavoie and #yxe neurologist Dr. Brett Graham said anyone with emergencies will still receive the same care as always and should not hesitate to call 911.— Jason Warick (@WarickCBC) September 23, 2021
But hundreds, possibly thousands of others w non-critical needs will have to wait indefinitely.
Lavoie and Graham said health-care staff are working around the clock to provide the best care they can to all patients.— Jason Warick (@WarickCBC) September 23, 2021
But Lavoie said there is frustration and sadness as well, because none of this had to happen.
Our government walked us directly into this fire. Thank you @SaskParty for a great Saskatchewan Summer. You shameless, heartless cowardly ideologues.— Colin Hall (@yogicolin) September 23, 2021
Will anybody in this gutless party stand up and say “we were wrong?” https://t.co/eMDjeBHFjZ
Back to the election -- I think the final results in several of the seats that were too close to call on election night have been reported tonight, with the counting of mail-in ballots. But I haven't been able to find anything yet showing a summary of the final results -- the Liberals have picked up a couple of seats just tonight, I think, and the NDP seem to be up 2 in Alberta. I think the Liberals are totalling around 160 seats, but I'm not sure yet.

I saw this Frank Graves tweet tonight:
That is such a Conservative style explanation of why they lost. Too pathetic for words. Never once did JT launch a personal attack against O'Toole, but O'Toole got viciously personal against JT.— Mike Morris (@1MikeMorris) September 23, 2021
If I was purely mercenary (and I am part mercenary) I could have crafted a truly winning strategy for the CPC . Fortunately, for all that is good and wise, they would never call , and I would never answer .— Frank Graves (@VoiceOfFranky) September 24, 2021
"The NDP came close to a breakthrough, but we lost a ton of seats close" is an argument for Jagmeet needing to resign immediately, just FYI— Evan Scrimshaw (@EScrimshaw) September 23, 2021
In other news, each year the US Fish and Wildlife Service has an art competition and last year the Trumpers decided that all of the bird artists had to include hunters and guns in their artwork.
Racism in QC maybe a reason Jagmeet hasn’t caught on, but it doesn’t remotely explain why he’s been totally shut out of Toronto.— Ken Cunningham (@KenCunn77721220) September 23, 2021
He’s a likeable guy with no policy chops.
Another funny one:
"Several artists appear to be saying to the government: You want hunting scenes? We’ve got your hunting scenes right here."— Nicolas Gonzalez 🪶 (@NicoSGonzalez) September 22, 2021
As always, everyone should read the latest @AMcGlashen. https://t.co/nplF8FLXi5
This is a reasonable critique. https://t.co/UOQb6S95Gk— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) September 23, 2021
