The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

In a commentary in the Canadian National Post, Kelly McPharland comments on the aftermath of the shocking authoritarian tactics employed by leftist Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, as he reacted to truckers who wanted vaccine mandates dropped so they could pursue cross border travel. She writes:

Leadership ... has failed on so many fronts in so many instances. Experts who lack expertise, appointees who aren’t up to the job, talking heads who can’t keep their story straight or their advice consistent. A governing class seemingly dedicated more to division and disparagement than pragmatism or co-operation. In sum it’s produced an anger that is palpable and not anywhere like the placid and polite Canadian profile. For a long time now Canada has been neither peaceable, orderly or well governed. 

An identical paragraph could be written about the United States. In fact, McPharland's description sounds as if it was written about the first year of the Biden presidency.

In the aftermath of the hysteria, stupidity, dishonesty, ineffectiveness, unnecessary spending, lock downs, school closures, idiotic mandates, and gleeful authoritarian governance that both the U.S. and Canada have experienced for the past two years, there should be a time of accounting.

There won't be.
