Dear Hon. Justin Trudeau,

The other day, I read your utterances that Canada will likely remain in lockdown till end of summer. We are in April and this means that we will be under lockdown till August or September? Exactly what did you mean by this? Do you know that by Day 22, some of us are losing our marbles and going bananas?

You then proceeded to say that Canada will not return to “normal” till after about a year. You gotta be kidding. A year? And you expect us to still be alive?

Lately, you are sounding like Uganda’s President HE. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. You are both throwing out outrageous information, likely to scare us!! Jesus better come soon because we are tired.

UPDATE FROM THE BOONIES:

It is snowing so bad here and the wind is ahowling. There are no cars on Route 132. This naturally means that all of us obedient citizens are #StayingHome.

Toronto Two (utoronto.ca) checked in and she is okay. She is worried about not having her campus job and now not even a summer job.

Toronto One (ryerson.ca) checked in and she is stressed from the assignments and upcoming exams. She also has no prospect for a summer job.

Las Vegas checked in and her family is doing well. Except she went “You mean it is snowing back home in Moncton, here, we are like maybe 20 degrees C. You should move here”. Except we all know that US has closed its border to Canada unless it is urgent that you travel. Canada should build a wall and make Mexico pay for it.

Charlottetown PEI (Upei.ca) checked in finally. She is well and also worried about jobs (campus and summer). It was very nice to hear from her though. Her little boy is also doing very well.

Back in Shediac. You just will not believe what happened to me yesterday. I went to that place and they have guards in front of banks and most of the stores to ensure that only a few people can get in. We were lining up in negative 6 degrees to get into banks or shops. I just jumped back into my car and drove home.

UGANDA is another story. The only thing I can tell you is that my siblings, cousins, the clan and elders are all staying at home. They are healthy and for this I am very grateful.

You have no idea what Uganda is dealing with. President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni might be my mortal enemy but he is doing an awesome job of keeping Ugandans safe. Our Public Health Chief Medical Doctor, Dr. Ruth Jane Aceng is working day and night. If Dr. Aceng talks to Dr. Theresa Tam, those two will figure out how more we can help Uganda. Uganda is a beautiful story that will be told in time. With time.

You will remember that I have always criticized the Uganda govt relentlessly. For obvious reasons like corruption and human rights abuses. However, watching my home country’s govt handling this pandemic has taught me humility and respect. Uganda is working with barely anything for this pandemic except a few good people and a govt which is now putting the citizens first and doing anything imaginable to save us. To save my family, relatives and clan. To save the country I come from.

Until next week, I will keep you posted.
