…They used to be a Rust Belt and a Bible Belt — but today, they’re the world’s worst Covid hotspots. The Dakotas alone right now have the world’s highest Covid caseloads, adjusted for population, period. That trend carries across most, if not all, Red States. So Red States aren’t just America’s Plague …
They sure do. And they are bringing it into Canada and I am so angry. Because yes, the borders are closed. But not to truckers driving stuff back and forth across the border.
Trucks from the Dakotas are driving into our prairie provinces and stopping for fuel and a meal and whatever -- and our cases are blowing up. Manitoba is already as bad as the Dakotas. Saskatchewan is going to be next.
It's bad enough the American government doesn't care about Covid or how many die. Now they're bringing it here, too. Our federal government is telling the provinces to tighten everything up. But if we don't shut down transport, it doesn't matter. I am so angry I have no words.
