    1. How far north? I’m in Jasper, face in palm, trying to be nice as friends advise me to avail myself of “other ways of knowing”, quote Oprah and Choprah and Tolle and have I heard of this amazing guy David Icke? The daycare has quietly become “Waldorf inspired”. Mossad is responsible for 911 and the local naturopath/homeopath is “amazing”. (I’ll say!) Am thinking of organising a vaccine info session. Maybe Dr. Rob Tarzwell or the Crommunist or someone like that would come and bolster the message from the Health Unit. A lively Q+A would be likely to follow.
