I think the total amount of trucks and length is being misunderstood a bit. If all vehicles were heading to Ottawa that would seem outlandish, even though Ottawa itself has 6000 km of roads in their network.
However, I do believe only part of the as of last update 50,000 vehicle convoy is slated for Ottawa itself. Other parts of the convoy are slated to aim for border crossings to shut them down. Last I read, approximately 1900 US trucks are heading toward the Canadian border in solidarity with Canada’s protest, 650 of those from Georgia. That said, they’ve more than broken the record for longest convoy given the 70km estimate.
Theoretically, they could shut down every border crossing and a good portion of Ottawa if the protest holds.January 27, 2022 at 6:23 am #99179
The 490km estimate is JUST that portion of the convoy coming from the west though. They’re coming from all over, so this is likely underestimated.January 27, 2022 at 6:29 am #99180deflationistaParticipant
How does one explain the numbers coming out of Scotland that basically show negative vaccine effectivity?
It is pretty much explained here:
“In the four weeks from December 11 to January 7, Scotland recorded 107 Covid deaths among patients who were double-vaccinated, but not boosted.
The vast majority (95 per cent) had received their second dose more than six months prior to their death and – of these patients – 96.3% “had several co-morbidities which contributed to their deaths” and an average age of 78.
According to the report from Public Health Scotland, the age-standardised Covid mortality rate in the first week of January was 0.46 per 100,000 in the triple-vaccinated population, compared to 11.89 per 100,000 in the double-jabbed and 7.62 per 100,000 among the unvaccinated.
However, once the over-70s – who are most vulnerable to waning immunity – are excluded, the mortality rate remains highest in the unvaccinated.”January 27, 2022 at 6:47 am #99181
That’s quite a bit of statistical manipulation to get your favored narrative, Defaultanista.January 27, 2022 at 7:08 am #99182DoraParticipant

I was getting ready to google “Calvin’s Owl”, looking for obscure folklore, probably Celtic, when I remembered the transmogrifier ray. *snicker*January 27, 2022 at 11:31 am #99197boscohorowitzParticipant
