Lacks a Certain Something

So, if I understand things back in the old homeland:

Toronto Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, the entire Abbotsford BC Minor Hockey League, the Board of Mount Sinai Hospital and Goldman Sachs and all of their families go to the head of the vaccination line leaving pregnant women and children to fend for themselves.

In Nova Scotia doctors are told that they can have the vaccinations but their office staff and families may not.

The medical ethicists, no doubt having been paid by Goldman Sachs, justify this explaining that hockey players are important to the fabric of Canadian society and are entitled to queue jump whenever they want.

Investment Bankers make a lot of money and so are more important than people who earn less. Certainly high earners are more important than medical staff, pregnant women and children none of whom have any economic value whatsoever.

Rudyard Kipling glorified the "women and children first" ethic from the actions of the men onboard the Birkenhead. It was a touching poem.

In the UK the ethic is "Women and Children First".

In Canada it is "Out of my way, bitch".
