The federal government is not Disney

Have you tried contacting Disney customer service recently?

Imagine the thousands of small lights that animate the circuits of the telephone exchange. After two years of the pandemic, imagine the number of parents around the world who must ultimately deliver on their often-postponed promise to go to Disney!

A mess ? No. A maximum of 15 minutes of waiting to arrive at a friendly representative, able to trace the tickets purchased in February 2020 and lost in the cloud computing of the global giant.

Relieved parents. Finally the big dream will come true!

Um, no … The passports are missing, ordered at the beginning of April, they haven’t arrived yet. And even if Mom had camped 24 hours at Complexe Guy-Favreau, we could miss our plane!

The federal government is not Disney.

Not only is there no Prince Charming or Tinker Bell, it seems increasingly evident that he lacks a minimum of competence in the face of the essential.

Somewhere else

Much has been said about the Quebecers’ “elsewhere”; I found the one from the Trudeau government! He is in the “rest”.

Because Ottawa loves socializing with the rest. Equality, exclusion. The provinces in particular.

Indignant at the law 21. Establish a national network of crèches, dental insurance. Participate in long-term care. Consider an EA for the third link. Threatening to engage in the protection of caribou.

When it comes to meddling in the rest, what concerns the areas of provincial competence, the Trudeau government always responds.

This “residue” is the grand vision of a progressive, inclusive and post-national Canada. A Canada of tomorrow, “elsewhere” from the banalities of today’s life.

Here

For the here and now, it is clear that we have fallen into a great stalemate.

Indeed, what are the most basic functions of the federal government, its areas of exclusive competence? Passports, airports, foreign affairs, national defense.

As for passports, the minister does not know when a return to normal can be expected. Perhaps due to the shortage of manpower, Pippo was in charge of planning?

Little thinning in sight at airports. The suspension of the health passport will not solve the logistical problems, warned the Minister of Transport.

Mélanie Joly is still mired in her half-truths after her office allowed a senior state official to go sip champagne at the Russian embassy. She maybe she should blame her Hex evil godmother.

As for the National Defense. It looks like Sleeping Beauty’s castle asleep in a bramble forest guarded by the machismo dragon of the 1960s.

If we were in a Disney movie, Prince Charming or the brave Mulan would come to free the government from its stalemate.

The time has come for this government to wake up and realize that ruling is not a fairy tale.
