Mamma Mia where is our mayor and her social media post writer? Flipper Clement makes a lot of noise, but she has failed this community during this crisis.
First there was the NAVCANADA fiasco, and then her perpetual petty unprofessional attack on CFN viewers by refusing to issue information to all media outlets which is also spread to the EOHU on whose board she sits.
Now we see pools, libraries, social gatherings and meetings being closed across the board as communities are finally catching up to the Covid 19 Coronavirus Pandemic, but Cornwall is mum.
In fact the city just emailed out yesterday info for March Break activities that would cluster people together.
So far the numbers are showing about a 7% mortality rate for this virus but those numbers are mostly for seniors and people with health issues. Extrapolating the latest information, in a town of 40% people with a high rate of the vulnerable that could be between 1500 and 4000 deaths. The line between the current impotency and ignorance of Mayor Clement and a more productive positive mayor could lead to the higher number rather than the lower one.
Cornwall of course is a community with a high percentage of Seniors and people with health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, and other morbidities.
Sometimes it’s not how much you say or how saccharine sweetly you say it, false empathy maybe treacle for some, but it’s nothing much but hot air. What you actually do counts, and in this case our Mayor has failed and failed big time.
Doctors are saying we will be seeing peak calamity in June/July in our neck of the woods.
The single thing we can all do, especially our leadership, is take whatever actions we can to prevent that wave from drowning us in illness and death.
And that is why this mayor, her council, and Sunshine list management have failed Cornwall.
It’s time to put people first, and especially those that are most vulnerable, first and pull together as a community because if we don’t more lives will be lost than should be.
