    I wish mask really helped unfortunately they don’t and the CDC even removed the statement that said this illness is airborne, they removed it because it isn’t true. I will link the article if I can find it.

    They JUST released that they’re opening borders for some people. US citizens can come here to visit but I can’t visit family in my own town? Covid is very real & a threat. But why is our government dealing with this so poorly?

    Lockdowns are killing more people through suicides and refusal of surgeries, not to mention the lives being ruined that are called un essentials

    Why would they let people cross the boarder a week before thanksgiving? We were just told we have to avoid gathering for thanksgiving but yet let more of the potentially infected cross the boarded to what? Say hi? Wow, way to talk out the side of your mouths.

    Sure, use nurses as a scapegoat to push lockdowns, that'll work out well.

    Yet these politicians are going to have thanksgiving dinners with 20 plus people. Where in history has this tyranny happened before? If this is true then no flights no borders open. Give up this hypocrisy already

    More testing equals higher numbers. Wonder how many positives have been and are walking around positive with no test?? You making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    What good are these measures when parents are sending so many children to mingle at school all day?

    3:08 The system is overloaded always. we cannot keep cancelling surgeries
    They cancelled surgeries only because the dumb lockdown regulations made a horrible rule about it. Meanwhile, ER's and hospitals were SILENT! So then why are you talking about more regulations, and not cancelling surgeries? Stop advocating for uneccessary regulations! It's your own regulations that are over loading the hospitals, it's not just dealing with patients. There are under 200 covid patients in the entire province in hospital for covid right now! The hospitals can handle MANY more times that number. Stop with the overloading argument. It's all the fuss and measures in place that are overloading everything.

    Turn off the TV and stop listening to these liars. This pandemic is a fraud. Don't follow their oppressive orders. They want to enslave you, inject you with DNA altering poison, and put the mark of the beast in you. Don't comply with any of this evil.

    They removed border restrictions because the numbers wont move in any meaningful way. This is to calm the people and to avoid mass hysteria and protests!

    Flu season is coming and it took me 5 days to book a test in my area and then it’ll take another 4 days for results. Am I supposed to stay home waiting for results when I get a cough or slight fever??

    Nurses association, what a garden. Nothing but a bunch of liberals. The medical profession should never be political, ever. However, it is extremely political. Large pharmaceutical companies buy off its members, government leaders buy off its members. The health industry is big business, and they become puppets of the left.

    There were two deaths in Ontario on October 1, as opposed to three on September 30, i.e. a one third reduction in deaths. So this continuing Hammer House of Horror coverage of the pandemic in this province by P&P is highly inappropriate.
