Today's News: "You can't handle the truth!"

Here's one thing I noticed today -- because Trudeau has Covid and has to appear on video in the Commons, he doesn't get interrupted by hecklers as much, and he can actually make his points without interruption. So, silver lining...
Here is Dale Smith's summary of today's Question Period back-and-forth. Canadians know the truth of the convoy insurrection, we know who had our backs and who did not, and we still support the Emergencies act
While in isolation for his COVID diagnosis, the prime minister pledged to appear virtually, and all of the other leaders were present for a change. Candice Bergen led off, script in front of her, and she went on a paean about telling the truth—which is rich coming from her—and demanded that the prime minister have Marco Mendicino step away from his job. Justin Trudeau, by video, read a list of people who stated at the time of the occupation that their powers had been exhausted, which is why they invoked the Emergencies Act. Bergen outright demanded Mendicino’s resignation, and Trudeau reminded her police should not be able to grant themselves emergency powers, which is why government invoked the Act to give them powers that he listed. Bergen again demanded Mendicino resign, and Trudeau said that this was about the Conservatives trying to hope people forgot their support for the occupation. 
Here's some clips: Turning to Ukraine, here are some updates and observations: Phillips O'Brien continues: On the lighter side, here's a series of tweets about printers Rage Against The Machine seems to be a useful metaphor these days: I frequently read recipe websites, so this tweet stuck a cord: And it reminded me of one of the funniest articles ever written, from The Toast - All the Comments from Every Recipe Blog. This excerpt will give you the flavour of it, so to speak:
 “I didn’t have any eggs, so I replaced them with a banana-chia-flaxseed pulse. It turned out terrible; this recipe is terrible.”  

Oh, and here's Fox, again (sigh): Go Amy! Go Amy!
