Brickbat: But He Didn't Die from COVID-19

|

Raphael Andre, 51, came to the Open Door shelter in Montreal recently, where he got a meal and a shower, as he often did. Staff say he would have stayed the night, but they had to turn him back out onto the street where he froze to death. "He could have been here, but instead, because of these [public health] regulations, we weren't allowed to have clients here overnight," said Heather Brunet, who works at the shelter. In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Quebec has barred the shelter from allowing people inside after 9:30 p.m.

  1. So 9:30 pm is when the virus really gets to spreading In Quebec ? Here in Ohio it’s 10 pm according to Dewine. Must be the exchange rate.

    1. They’re on Canadian time.

    2. Perhaps the response of the rule-makers would be: at least he didn’t get Covid and spread it to others the next day on the streets. That he died was unfortunate, they might say, but still preferable to letting him get, and spread, the infection. I wonder if any of the Provincial rule-makers would dare to actually say that out loud.

    3. It’s that whole Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion.

  2. Awkward Day in my point of view.

    1. I get paid 95 $ each hour for work at home on my PC. I never thought I’d have the option to do it however my old buddy is gaining 65k$/month DRgu to month by carrying out this responsibility and she gave me how.

  3. Awkward Day in my point of view.

  4. Nothing has really changed since probably forever. Except that in the old days, people actually wrote about the conditions – and other people read about it. And now – more ignored.

  5. Pretty sure that got marked as a COVID death anyway.

    1. Of course. Dying from a fear of COVID is the same as dying from a COVID infection.

      In our coddled culture, not just words but ideas are violence.

      1. Plus more crown funds or whatever they call it.

  6. Somebody has been watching viva Frei! The Canadian (a good one, unlike mothers lament a bad Canadian, am I right white knight?) law blogger.

  7. Well, we can be certain he will not spread the Communist Chinese Virus – –

    1. At least until he thaws out!

  8. “He could have been here, but instead, because of these [public health] regulations, we weren’t allowed to have clients here overnight,”

    Sure sounds like a coronavirus-related death to me.

  9. This baton de brique was required by law to have been reported en Francais and filthy horrible English. I’m calling the language police, and you know damned well they don’t knock before raiding.

  10. Just another in a very long line of tragic stories of the road to hell being paved with good intentions, and bigger and increasingly intrusive government regarding the details of our lives.

    1. There were no good intentions in this, there was only a need to be in control.

  11. That’s weird. You would have thought the magic masks would solve this problem.

  12. Unintended consequences are not unforeseen. This was Quebec. It’s not like they didn’t know it was freezing outside in the winter. The fucking river freezes every year. It’s fucking cold.

    But the government rules mandate that the homeless freeze to death.

    1. Hey, they’ve finally found a solution to the homeless crisis.

      \sarcasm

  13.

  14. Once again, proof that local officials aren’t trying to solve anything.

    1. What do you mean? They’ve solved the homelessness crisis.

      1. Look, I’ve been one of THE most vocal critics about the Homelessness Industrial Complex, the policies that have been put in place to actually encourage homelessness, the refusal to arrest anyone for any crime as long as they’re perceived to be homeless, the trash, the needles, the assaults, the murders, etc., the list goes on.

        But it absolutely sickens me that the city would close a shelter during a Quebec winter, literally kicking people out onto the street which results in people freezing to death, because of COVID.

  15. What do you mean? They’ve solved the homelessness crisis.

  16. All you republican voters assigned to cross-dress as libertarians might as well get used to freezing in the dark. As your extremities tingle, remember God’s Own Prohibitionist priorities: bully them bitches, murder people over marijuana, and keep those Nixon anti-Libertarian law campaign subsidies working to preserve the Kleptocracy.

    1. And this is related to the article how?

  17. Any of you folks from the midwest recognize the “news” report after the first good snowstorm:
    “Old fart dies of heart attack after shoveling snow”; they left out “cheap skate” not willing to pay the kid down the street.
    No longer living there, I get the annual “news” report after the first good rain:
    “Three dead after family eats mushrooms harvested from local forest”
    Stupidity is fungible.

  19. What do you mean? I need More Information Please.
