New Léger Québec Poll: 17-pt Bloc Lead

Poll 09-11-30.PNG

The New Democrats are riding high at 17%, while the Greens are at only 5%.

‘’Poison’’ vaccine madness

Have we all lost our collective heads. What is all this madness. People are lining up to have what amounts to a toxic mix of chemicals and rotting animal tissue injected into their blood stream because they have been told that this will keep them healthy and protect them from a flu virus; a flu which has been described as mild (St. Justine Hospital, Montreal).
