Quickly Igor... bring me a brain!!!

That's a grand total of three people with pre-existing medical conditions, right?

-- In the decade from 1991-2000, there were 5,900 water-related deaths in Canada; of that total, 889 died fishing. --

"You might be a little less cavalier. Your brat could get it this fall."
Yup... that's just about what I expect from the compassionate, intellectual and invariably anonymous left.

Wake up dumbstick and smell the manipulation.

3 in Ottawa, 62 across the country. So what's your point?

Only 7 people a year die from lightning strikes in Canada, you still teach your kids to get out of the water in a thunderstorm, don't you?

You might be a little less cavalier. Your brat could get it this fall.

oh, nonnybot... the fatality rate in canada currently stands at .5 percent... virtually all of whom had pre-existing medical conditions and were already at risk. the swine flu was simply the last little push.

this is media hype, right down the line.

see, nonny... this isn't spanish flu... it isn't even sars... and my son is much more likely to drown, or be killed in a car crash... but guess what... we're not gonna ban swimming, or trade our vehicle in for a horse & buggy.

but you can, of course, still go ahead and retreat to your basement bunker.

and "brat", huh? that's nice.

you can keep wishing ill on other people's children... but it doesn't change the fact that you're apparently a willing dupe of the media... and a little "cavalier" yourself.

oh, that's right... my kid "deserves" it... because i'm such a bad person.

once again... the wisdom of anonymous trolls.

p.s. to r&r -- i'm sure ladders are way more dangerous... statistics anyone?

The WHO cry wolf and every civilized nation spends millions on drugs and vaccines that are not needed, nice little set-up.
About time people started to catch on.

at this particular point in time, as one journalistic wag, (referring to tasers), put it... "you've got a better chance of being strangled by your own pants."

frances... i'd love to know that number too.

so how about we just start buying all our food from china... I mean, what's a little lead and melamine among friends?

you know what sometimes scares the begeezus outta me?

my chainsaw.

I would be interested in seeing how many in people in Canada died of the flu last year(all variations). Anybody find the figures?

I'd also like to see stats on people getting very ill post vaccine. In my workplace the staff that took the vaccine were very ill for frequent long periods over the winter. I refused the vaccine...and no illness at all.
BTW we are health care, all exposed to 'whatever' shows up.

from the link above...

Statistics Canada says the number of deaths from pneumonia and influenza has increased from approximately 4200 in 1979 to 8030 in 1997.

Of the latter, 6618 cases involved people older than 75, compared with 2965 in 1979. Despite the increase in the absolute number of deaths, says Tam, mortality rates have actually gone down in every age group.

"Canada now ranks number 1 in the world for influenza [vaccine] doses per capita," says Tam. "It's almost 1 in 3."
