Coronavirus: Quebec introduces financial aid for shuttered businesses under partial lockdown | FULL

Quebec Premier François Legault and Economy Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon announced Thursday that the government will cover 80 per cent of expenses such as rent and electricity for shuttered bars and restaurants in October as Greater Montreal, Quebec City and certain parts of the Chaudière-Appalaches region go into a partial lockdown in October.

Under the red zone designation, private gatherings are prohibited and bars, taverns, restaurant dining rooms, casinos, cinemas, theatres, and museums are being forced to close for a 28-day period starting Oct. 1.

Quebec topped 75,000 cases as the province reported 933 new infections Thursday, one of the highest daily tallies in months.

    From the book "The First Global Revolution" written by Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider:

    "It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary, to organize and act together in the vacuum; such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else ONE INVENTED for the purpose."

    "The common enemy of humanity is man."

    "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, WE CAME UP WITH THE IDEA that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would FIT THE BILL. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself."

    Hence, the Covid hoax is just one of many. Wake up sheeple. The mask is designed to muffle your voice and take away your health, wealth, freedom, etc.

    Hello and welcom to the new "C" in CCCP, I hope you don't value freedoms or liberty because here in Commi Canada we crush all who don't agree or aren't complacent. So enjoy our country because we'll soon have gulags in our north, Oh Canada the true North strong but not free…

    The federal government, it's entire system of delivery services to taxpayers and all of it's funding and regulatory compliance support points to provincial services have been used to politicize the "Covid Pandemic" by Prime Minister Trudeau in an attempt to influence the US presidential election. This is being supported by fraudulent and malfeasance use of the PCR testing protocol, the compliance of mainstream Canadian media outlets that are collectively receiving over $1 million per day in sycophant support payments and coordinated pressure on Provincial medical officers through WHO directives. Our entire government machinery has been handed over to a handful of individuals, corporations and NGO's to get Donald Trump out of office and Canadian politicians are willing to sacrifice thousands of Canadian lives and the future of your children to accomplish this.

    QUEBEC and SOUTHERN ONTARIO are to be DIVIDED OUT OF CANADA, as they don't believe in CANADA as a whole, equally.
    QUEBEC and SOUTHERN ONTARIO belong as UPPER CANADA, and LOWER CANADA, or vice versa.

    THE REST OF CANADA wishes for Quebec and Southern Ontario to become their own nation(s).
    PLEASE REALIZE what horrors your leaders have committed against the rest of CANADA.

    This is all orchestrated people. They come out with this news story about racist doctors in Quebec, because they are associating PROTESTORS and NATIONALISTS with Racism. The reason they are clamping down hard on Quebec is because Quebec has the highest number of Nationalists. When the riots start, Quebec will be the province to start it.

    The whole trend is leading to normalizing TYRANNY. To any problem, social, economical, health etc TYRANNY could be a possible solution. Who's against saving the weak and the elderly? HOW we do that and HOW MUCH it's going to cost doesn't matter.

    Oh, look, it's Premier Andrew Cuomo. Whoops, sorry, I meant Premier François Legault. (It's hard to tell them apart given their similar levels of gross incompetence.)

    Thanks, Quebec, for being the New York/New Jersey of Canada when it comes to COVID.

    It's not a new virus. It is one of 7 corona viruses that infect humans. So, it behaves like all the other corona viruses. Stop your bullshitting and pretending that this virus is magical or something.

    If the governments anounced that everyone inhale eucalyptus vapours for only7 days we control COVID-19 disease because the covid is basically starts from respiratory system and if we control on it from the start of its spread in all over the body we save lives.
