Nursing homes didn’t “matter”.
The confused and heartbroken seniors who thought families had forgotten them, the shuttered emergency rooms, the cancelled surgeries, the Easter services forbidden, the graduations uncelebrated, the bars and restaurants and other small businesses that struggled to survive for eleven long weeks in a province wide effort to protect our vulnerable?
Now, after those eleven long weeks we learn that not one Saskatchewan senior, not one health care worker, not one businessperson, not one employee in this province was as important as some dead guy in Minneapolis.
That a random criminal turned network news celebrity corpse, who met a tragic end while high on meth and fentanyl, with a rap sheet that included five incarcerations and a home invasion (during which he held a pregnant woman at gunpoint) — would “matter” more than any of us.
