Coronavirus: Quebec Premier, Gatineau mayor choose stupid cops over more healthcare
There has been no advisory issued by either the Trudeau government in general or Health Canada to support the need for "border controls" regarding Canadians travelling into Quebec.
Yet, Quebec Premier François Legault backed by Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin has seen fit to spend huge amounts of Quebec public taxpayer money on two levels of Quebec Police Departments having border controls against traffic coming into the province of Quebec from Ottawa. These two levels of police departments are the Gatineau Police and the Surete du Quebec.
Do you have any idea the huge of money such an ongoing operation like this costs in terms of police salaries and other administrative costs?
I would like to know how many additional healthcare workers could have been saving lives in Quebec hospitals while the Premier Legault and Mayor Pedneaud-Jobin have been indulging their separatist egos and passive aggression against other Canadians? These apparent two political clowns are completely irresponsible on this matter.
How many Quebec lives could Legault and Pedneaud-Jobin have saved during the coronavirus crisis of they weren't spending the money on stupid cops from two different departments?
Premier François Legault denies the Outaouais needed money for hospitals. But Québec City seems to have plenty of cash for wasteful border controls!
But alas, just about every motorist in Ottawa knows that one of the favourite pastimes of the Gatineau Police and the Surete du Quebec is harassing drivers with Ontario license plates.
Now that there's a pandemic, these corrupt cops now get to harass Ontario drivers under the pretext of the pandemic.
But it's more than apparent that these cops have no fear of getting COVID-19 from any of these motorists. I have yet to see any wearing protective gear!
It's apparent that all of these cops know that coronavirus is not the real reason that they are on duty at the expense of Quebec taxpayer dollars which should be allocated to the province's public healthcare system on saving more lives in Quebec.
Gatineau Mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin is flexing his political muscles with his Premier at the expense of saving lives and expediting the health of Quebecers.
Quebecers need more doctors on duty along with more nurses, healthcare workers and public health staff ensuring that all Quebecers are educated on COVID-19.
Quebecers do not need stupid cops asking stupid questions and wasting time and money on the fight against COVID-19.
The mis-allocation of precious resources under the auspices of Premier Legault and Gatineau Mayor Pedneaud-Jobin in such a pandemic where there is so much human suffering is a Crime Against Humanity.
Fortunately, wisdom prevails on the Ontario side.
Watson confirmed that Ottawa would not support putting municipal police resources on the five bridges for "24 hours a day" at this stage, describing it as a "complete waste of resources."
While Ontario's Premier Rob Ford is lifting boxes the vitally needed medical supplies, Premier Legault is grandstanding in his $1000 suits portraying himself as the champion of Quebecers backed-up by his ex-colleagues in Quebec's propaganda-makers in the clique that runs the Quebec "mainstream" media.
It is this kind of flawed decision-making that has not worked in favour of Quebecers. Indeed, Quebec has become Canada's new epicentre of COVID.
British Columbia's provincial government has comparatively been able to level-off their experience of the pandemic without putting police on its borders with Alberta.
It's up to Quebecers to hold Premier Legault accountable for the continued waste of their money on such an apparent political activity as "border cops" which is neith endorsed by the federal government nor more more sensible political leaders at the City of Ottawa..
