I think that’s the first step to being able to make an impact on period poverty,” Deo said.“It will make such a huge difference to the dignity, health and wellbeing of women. We want to be able to have our periods with dignity. We want an end to the stigma and shame associated with our periods. That’s all we want!”On 19 March, just a few days before he self-isolated with Covid-19, a sunken-eyed Boris Johnson told the daily Downing Street briefing that in 12 weeks “we can turn the tide”. “I am absolutely confident that we can send coronavirus packing,” he said. On Thursday those 12 weeks are up – and they have seen the country go through turmoil.The prime minister struggled for his life in intensive care, and more than 40,000 people who tested positive have died alongside thousands of others with suspected cases. Care homes have been ravaged and now the economy stands on the brink of the deepest recession since 1706, according to the Bank of England.The lockdown is being loosened, but fears of a second wave are rife.So has the tide really turned?On Wednesday, Downing Street was upbeat. But interviews with experts, and analysis of the government’s own data, paint a grim picture of what the UK has endured – and a lack of confidence about what the next 12 weeks may hold.First glance at the now-familiar government graphs suggest the curves tracking new infections and deaths are showing significant improvements, at least when viewed from the devastating peak of the outbreak around Easter, when new infections hit 3,918 on 5 April and deaths peaked at 943 a day on 11 April, taking rolling averages. Closer inspection reveals a less comforting picture. When Johnson spoke 12 weeks ago there were 913 new cases of coronavirus recorded each day on average. At the latest count there were 1,543.Twelve weeks ago the seven-day rolling average for daily deaths was just 21; this week it remains 10 times higher. As the Labour leader, Keir Starmer, reminded Johnson in parliament on Wednesday, the UK’s excess deaths during the pandemic have passed 63,000 – higher than in Italy, Spain and France. As Greece (with a death toll of 183) welcomes holidaymakers, Britons still cannot stay overnight with extended family in most cases.

In Ontario, 83% of government employees have a pension, compared to only 25% for those outside of government. Perhaps more concerning, 95% of government employee pensions in Ontario are defined benefit plans, meaning taxpayers are liable for any shortfalls.Ontario should have addressed the government employee wage premium before the coronavirus economic downturn, but with a shriveled tax base struggling to prop up gargantuan governmental overhead, politicians must act now.— Jasmine Pickel is Ontario Director of the Canadian Taxpayers FederationSystemic racism exists in Ontario and Canada, Premier Doug Ford says.His statement was made in the Ontario legislature Wednesday in response to NDP Leader Andrea Horwath’s demand that he acknowledge the hundreds of thousands of Ontarians who face racial discrimination every day and order the collection of race-based health data.“Of course there’s systemic racism in Ontario.
