  1. I suggest we all take care of our own health in so far as is possible!
    Our health care system is in such shambles only the elites can expect timely medical care.
    Out provinces can only do so much.
    They still have to follow federal law and allow for the amount of federal funding allotted to them.
    Under this current administration I just don’t see anything changing
    (for the better anyways:(
    At All.

    Take Care and God Bless All ☦️
    Or if you lean towards atheism
    Take Care and Best Wishes ♥️
    In these insane times we are all going to need it!
