“We need ventilators!” We didn’t

“The hospitals will overflow!” They didn’t

“It will be 10x deadlier than the flu!” It wasn’t

“Re-opening and having protests will cause mass spikes and death!” They didn’t

Liberals Steal. CPC looks the other way despite tough talk in Parliament.

PPC is the only party that will genuinely take steps towards saving Canada.

CPC and LPC are both demonstrably Traitorous parties.

The 40,000 ventilators the government ordered came with a $1.1-billion price tag. Few ventilators were made in Canada before the pandemic and most of the companies awarded contracts had to start from scratch. To date, the government has received just 3,210, but they also haven’t been needed.

I am shocked.

The contract has drawn criticism from opposition parties, partly due to to the involvement of Frank Baylis, chairman of Baylis Medical and a Liberal MP from 2015 to 2019.

Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner said in the house that it raises questions because it was awarded before the ventilators were even approved by Health Canada. She specifically questioned why this order went through and orders for rapid tests languished.

Well well well. So the worm turns. Corruption never sleeps.

I don’t blame governments for stockpiling ventilators. At the time it was the only known treatment course for the disease (because we briefly forgot China is incompetent and listened to them).

Unfortunately the ventilators killed more people than the disease itself. Almost everyone in NYC put on a ventilator at the beginning of the outbreak died.

I blame them for letting out a contract for 40,000 and yet to get back more than 3,000. This, six months afterwards. What if we actually needed them?

Should we also throw billions and billions against anything anyone comes up with? And then just lose interest - let 'em keep it?

There will come a point when we can't tap any more debt eh?

I should have started a “medical supply” company when this shit went down and took huge government contracts that I could not ever fulfill and then disappear.

Even if you had to kick back 59% to Thugs Incorporated, you would still be ahead $millions. Wouldn’t even have to rent office space.

So quick math - $27500 a pop. Are you fucking kidding me?

What's a billion anyways? You didn't need it. Clearly the powers that be who directed it to their own thought I didn't need it.
