Infections on the rise, Elliott does not worry but Ford is more cautious

TORONTO – No turnaround. The alarm launched by the director of the Ontario Science Advisory Table Peter Juni following the constant increase in Covid-19 infections in the province did not go well. Today the Minister of Health Christine Elliott intervened on the issue and made it clear that everything is under control, the reopening plan will not change. “An increase in cases was predicted with the arrival of cold weather since people spend more time at home, and this was taken into account by the province,” she said.  (more…)

Overcrowded classrooms during the pandemic? It’s not my fault…

TORONTO – Rule number one: it’s not my fault. In the chaos in which Ontario’s Education sector finds itself, characterized by accusations, invective, controversies, complaints, retaliation and divisions, we have witnessed the most classic blame game on the responsibilities in a situation that is becoming unsustainable, especially in the Toronto Catholic District School Board. To try to understand what is happening, we must necessarily start from a fact: starting from October 12 there has been a merger of dozens of classes in many schools of the Catholic Board, with the consequent increase in the number of students in the individual classrooms.

Conservatives on the run, the debate in Quebec does not change the balance

TORONTO – The debate in Quebec on September 2 between the leaders did not shift the balance of power between the parties. The confirmation comes from the last 8 polls carried out after the debate in French which highlight how the Conservative Party led by Erin O’Toole continues to enjoy a comforting margin of advantage over the liberals of Justin Trudeau. Jagmeet Singh’s NDP continues to play the role of third inconvenience while the percentage of undecided remains high. The gap that divides the conservatives from the Liberal Party ranges from the 1.5 percent detected by Nanos to 6.4 percent highlighted by Ekos. In general, tories are stabilising at around 35 per cent, while grits range from 28.1 per cent to 33 per cent.  (more…)

TORONTO – There are just over three weeks left before the start of the new school year. Another year that will begin with the specter of the pandemic. Just in view of the return to school of the boys, the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), illustrated at Highland Heights Junior Public School how it is preparing in terms of ventilation and safety measures.

Six doses of the vaccine are not enough for the Green Pass. “I’ll sue the Ministry”

MASSA CARRARA – Everyone wants the Green Pass but not everyone wants to get vaccinated. Then, there are those who have had more than two doses of vaccine but they just can’t get the Green Pass. It’s the case of Virginia G., the 23-year-old girl from Massa, in Tuscany, a master’s student in Psychology in Pisa, who was injected with six doses of anti-Covid Pfizer vaccine by mistake, on 9 May at the hospital “Noa” di Massa (the number of injected doses was then adjusted from four to six by the ASL of Massa Carrara).

Vaccine passport not on the horizon in Ontario, for now

TORONTO – The vaccination passport hypothesis continues to divide. The provincial government of Ontario has so far categorically ruled out the activation of a European-style Green Pass, a position that has been confirmed several times during the last few days of the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario Kieran Moore: for now a universal document certifying the double vaccination has taken place is not on the political agenda of the executive. Yet the debate on this thorny issue continues, as is happening in the Old Continent in the wake of the squeeze wanted in France by President Emmanuel Macron. (more…)

“Your eminence, a lot of things do not make sense”, by the Honourable Joe Volpe, brings to light the disparity between the rights afforded religious institutions and commercial enterprises in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.  The Church has protested feebly to the severe restrictions, while big box stores, supported by the Provincial Cabinet, have been vociferous and unrelenting.  The result is that, while large chain stores and outlet malls are now permitted to be open, even crowded, churches and mausoleums remain virtually shuttered.  Volpe laments the Cardinal’s inaction, as seen also in recent events surrounding Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Toronto.
