The Wild Hunt, at least this time, is preceded by a blowing of horns.
Justin Trudeau toots casually in French. Quebec children are encouraged to join in.
James Bryson published by The Nova Scotia Civil Liberties Association dissects The Ugly Business of Scapegoating the Unvaccinated.
Emmanuel Macron curses a group he no longer considers citizens.

Neil Oliver can hear the horns.
