  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Says 'Vaccines Are Saving Lives' While Selling Anti-Fauci Merch More conservatives are endorsing vaccines as Republicans and white conservatives are the demographics most opposed to getting vaccinated."If you are vaccinated, fully vaccinated, the chances of you getting seriously ill or dying from COVID is effectively zero," DeSantis said during a Wednesday press briefing. "If you look at the people being admitted to hospitals, over 95 percent of them are either not fully vaccinated or not vaccinated. And so these vaccines are saving lives.

She also pleaded for Arctic and Environmental Defense and for reconciliation with indigenous peoples. "For many years, Canada has suffered the disproportionate consequences of climate change because the Arctic warms up faster than almost anywhere else on the planet," she said.

In this speech issued in English and Inuktitut, with some apartments in French, the new Governor General has again committed to learning this language, one of the two officials of the country.

Originally from Nunavik (northern Quebec), it is bilingual English and Inuktitut, but does not speak French, which has earned it criticisms and more than a thousand complaints filed with the Office of the Commissioner of Official Languages.

"We need people like Mrs. Simon, because we need people who build bridges and gather us" greeted Justin Trudeau.

Mary Simon spoke last Thursday with Queen Elizabeth II by videoconference because of the pandemic. It is appointed for five years, but the duration of its mainly honorary mandate is at the discretion of the Queen.

The former activist for the rights of Aboriginal people succeeds Julie Payette, who resigned in January after accusations of harassment within his office.
