    It’s not that 99.9 percent of us are terrified of Covid, it’s cause the government shut down everything, except themselves, and we don’t like wearing face diapers while sitting in a tube that over changes us to travel. Plus, the government doesn’t want us to travel, however, 500 of us can go apple picking at Walmart.

    Distraction news. Focus on the corrupt gov and the fact that WHO said the lockdown should be canceled.

    Trump pandemic failures? What about the wet rag prime minister of Canada? What left wing hypocrisy.

    The US as just over 200,000 deaths. Their are 1m world wide deaths. Global news needs to get the facts straight before promoting an obvious propaganda piece. I’m disappointed with your coverage in general lately. Piss poor reporting.

    Likely west jet is a corporation in bed with the perpetrators of this scamdemic, so they have to tow the line and pretend it’s so dangerous to fly in Eastern Canada. But those people getting laid off, know you are being made poor for a lie, viruses can’t be spread or caught and they certainly don’t cause disease.
