I'm no stalker but..

I feel a tremendous amount of admiration for the dedication of Dr. Bonnie Henry. she makes me proud to be Canadian and consequently makes me want to be a better citizen. A salute to whomever appointed her, your judgement is perfect.

We all love her. From the first weird Covid press conference. She is Canada's mom right now.

I also have growing empathy for all the other leaders who's efforts have been thwarted by that impetuous orange thing to the south, including Doug Ford, of whom I've never been a fan, and NY's Governor Cuomo as well. The raw emotion in the voices of all these people has really gotten to me.

What is so great about her?. I'm not trying to trash her, I just dont understand why everyone is in love with her.

She's briefing the press every day on a global health crisis. It's an extreme example, but basically she's just doing her job.

I understand appreciating her, but i dont understand glorifying her.

Had a hand in appointing her Deputy PHO back in the day, so he set her up to be a candidate. I maybe wrong, but I think PHOs are appointed by the Minister of Health, so it would have been Adrian Dix that appointed her in 2018.

I think a lot of people (myself included) respond positively to having key facts and consistent messages delivered by Bonnie in a calm, level-headed manner that de-escalates panic rather than feeding it.

The calm soft spoken manner

is what people like to hear. A nice change from some loud stressed politicians.

The poster who called her "mom" got it right---we have a population of infantile authoritarians who like the security that authority provides.

That's funny

Trying to equate stalking with admiration? Nah. Stalking is about control, and quite frankly, I don't five a fuck about your power dynamic fetishes. But yes, she is lovely.
