    Less staff, and they should have never allowed in-person visits.

    The people dying from covid-19 are the flu vaccinated. The people that live in long-term care homes are heavily vaccinated.

    – China's Xi Jinping and
    – WHO's Tedros
    should be criminally charged and arrested immediately for their roles in the Wuhan outbreak.

    No Chinese 🇨🇳 should be allowed into Canada until the Wuhan outbreak has been independently investigated.

    Yes. I agree wid my Trudeau. We have wear mask and not go to work. Destroy economy and we all lose job. It good though, because it stop spending. However, it NOT stop spreading, because our leader not smart, and realize that locking down and destroying economy was for nothing. But he going to have the old Canadian die. I wonder what all of the old Canadian think about what Trudeau is doing to Canada. I ask my grandfather, and he tell me that everyone in the old care home hate Trudeau and want him to die because he destroyed Canada. Ha ha ha. Yes he did.

    More cleaning , get a grip , why was it ok to shut the country down in the beginning, but now even though it is likely going to get as bad or worse then before , now they are trying there hardest to keeping every body open , factories running full on . What lives mattered in the beginning but not now. All I here about is Doug Ford telling people not to gether at home , mean while thousands of people are beside each other every day working away . How come thats ok . But give up the family tradition
