ArriveCAN is a Scam

Thank you for reading. Please note, WordPress has recently gone on steroids with its ad insertions into my articles. Please disregard that garbage and enjoy the article.

Some Canadians have been complaining lately about the Canadian government’s ArriveCAN app. It intrudes into people’s privacy, it does not run well, and it is being forced onto Canadians who want to travel. If you don’t download it, there may be complications for you.

Apparently, according to the apple app ratings, Canadians love ArriveCAN. First, consider the number of ratings of the popular apps shown below…

Millions upon millions of people use the apps above, and Twitter has the highest number of ratings (490K). Now consider the ArriveCAN app…

508K ratings! Wow! And an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Amazing! Not only are Canadians rushing to rate the app, they all give it great reviews too. Or do they?

Someone has been buying reviews, and that someone went just a tad overboard.

Hopefully Canadians say enough to this app and refuse to use it. Are we sick of being lied to for our own good yet?

Teams are for Sports and Young People – Visionary Leaders Vs. Masters – Part Nine

When you’re on a team you’ve got to show up for whatever the coach tells you to show up for. You’ve got to show up 100%, and you have to be enthusiastic about it. What the coach wants to teach you, you have to be eager to learn.

Teams are great for sports, and for groups of young people, who often need a coach in their lives to give them direction. However, when you’re a mature adult, teams just become an annoyance. Mature adults should form associations, not teams. (Although, a baseball team is pretty good.)

An association allows you to work with like minded people for a common goal while giving you the freedom to decide how exactly you will participate. You decide how you can and will benefit the association. You don’t need a coach to tell you what to do or what you need to know. This requires maturity, but mature people require associations, not teams.

Visionary leaders love teams, but masters form associations. Be a master.

Reflections on the Sorry State of Canada by Jordan Peterson

Is Canada in such a sorry state as Peterson says? Many would disagree. However, there is no voice equivalent to Peterson’s celebrating the current state of Canada or its leadership.

Conservatives, of course, want small government, limited spending, and personal freedom. Trudeau’s government is not supplying any of these things. Progressive Liberals want security, equity, and diversity, but Trudeau isn’t supplying these things either, although he thinks he is.
