Across the country, Canadians are worried about the breakdown in hospital services -- because too many health care workers keep on getting sick with Covid, at the same time as the system grapples with the cumulative effect of two years of delayed surgeries and neglected health conditions.
That being said, we have to work on equality, health care, education, housing, public services, pharma and dental, small businesses, foreign investment, elections, and the Russia Ukraine war. We have a lot to do.— Rod Farva's litre of cola (@RodKahx) August 29, 2022
I know all about provincial and federal jurisdiction. But if there is one battle the federal government should fight right now, it’s protecting universal public health care. Explore every option available. Don’t let it pass. Be a pest to the Premiers. People are worried. #cdnpoli— Dr. Matthew S. Johnston (@mattjohnstonca) August 24, 2022
This is how Ontario thinks it will solve hospital crowding:

My whole family is terrified of having to try to access an ER these days. Luckily we have all been healthy enough to avoid them since 2020, but that can change in an instant. https://t.co/uuTTdZ0KNt— Cathie from Canada 🇨🇦 😷🏳️🌈 (@CathieCanada) August 27, 2022
Here's a great idea:
Saskatchewan plans to pledge cash hiring incentives for health care workers in remote and rural parts of the province as they struggle to recruit and retain staff, resulting in shuttered and curtailed services in dozens of communities https://t.co/9sM9Niaz9F— Zak Vescera (@zakvescera) August 24, 2022
The website he created is here: Sk Service Disruptions Why Sask Health hasn't done this already, I don't know.
It was great to hear @SLangeneggerCBC's interview with @joelghill this morning. Such an important initiative.— Carla Beck (@CarlaBeckSK) August 29, 2022
He's right - the province should provide a lot more information about health service disruptions in communities. It's dangerous not to.#skpolihttps://t.co/oe4mFk1D4E

no one on the right does the "who would you rather have a beer with" thing about electoral candidates anymore, because the median republican candidate for office is a red-faced, screaming maniac who would be legally barred from attending his child's soccer game.— GONELIKEHELLMACHINE (@golikehellmachi) August 23, 2022
So I'm thinking its time to replay how incredibly happy Americans were when Biden was elected and Trump lost:
I think it's time we start covering Trumpism for what it is now.— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) August 29, 2022
It's no longer a political movement. It's a violent fairytale of revenge on political enemies.

This is why Biden will win again in 2024 too:

Checking in on Ukraine, it appears that the long-awaited push to liberate Kherson may be underway, though Markos reports some discussion about whether today's battles represent a major push or not.
