    People, just wait for September let children set down school. Look at US what happens if the people don't want to follow the rules. It is not just a mask, all things together protect you. It is not perfect but it works better. Do you want the same scenario like in US. We could make it just because we follow the rules. Beside your freedom there is responsibility to protect people around you. Don't let your memory forget what we just accomplished together! Be patient!!!

    Here's a REAL question how did Quebec not only test but confirm 104 cases in 24hours? Covid tracing apps have been snuck into all our phones so start publishing the positive people so people can independently verify these are real individual cases not the same covid positive person being repeatedly tested and repeatedly counted as a positive case. GET WHAT IM SAYING? And shove your privacy right you know where tha tracing apps are added without consent and your staying home if your sick people know anyways

    you didnt ask the individual who protest why they were doing it and get the reasons for it only talk down to the viewers it would be a better story then get told by cbc the same information you have the personal freedom to do that.

    The tactic used by the govt is the same that used by horse trainers. They put a mask to cover the horse eyes to make them feel more calm and obedient.

    Let’s give them what they want and they should give up the free health insurance
    !Why should tax paid insurance cover someone denying the health authorities direction?!!

    You can choose to put what you want on your face, or not. The law doesnt get to say what I wear, sorry but thats a law I won't listen to.

    The protest is not just about masks. It’s about the child rapists and Hunan trafficking of criminal Government is perpetrating. Those in high places are the biggest pedos.

    The only conspiracy is the concerted efforts to censor and shutting down of competing medical opinions on Covid-19. We are presented with a single narrative that this is a new virus and we don’t know much about it and there’s much more to learn etc. etc, etc. But like magic, they know exactly what needs to be done and not surprisingly, they know it’s been handled exactly right. Anyone who has a different medical professional opinion is obviously just a crazy conspiracy theorist. Vomit…can you just stop using that term for people who simply have a different view on something we know very little about. Anyone still using that term has very little credibility remaining.

    I learned absolutely nothing in this “news” report. No interviews of demonstrators. Apparent “conspiracy theories” of demonstrators. Pandemic apparently “growing”. Another reason why CBC and their $1.2B annual budget in urgent need of a redefined mandate & reform for the 21st century.
