My Take: Matthew McCully

My Take: Matthew McCully

The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was the vax tax.

Legault missed his calling. He should write football plays.
Like those legendary ones you see at the end of a movie when everyone looks in one direction, then they yell hut, and everyone looks down at the football, but low and behold, it has been replaced by a cabbage patch kid. Meanwhile, the hero is down the field, halfway to a touchdown.
Is that analogy too hard to understand for anyone not living inside my head?
Ok, try this: Legault’s proposed tax on the unvaccinated is a distraction, designed to turn attention away from government shortcomings and pit Quebecers against each other.
Anti-vaxxers aren’t a new problem. We’re on our fifth wave, people.
Am I the only one wondering why, if infringing on constitutional rights (a common practice for the CAQ) were an option to address vaccine hesitancy, why a harder line wasn’t taken earlier?
