    I feel bad for the people who still think this will all be over "in a few weeks". These measures will never go away and will only continue to get more and more restrictive.

    In February China put out a large study showing asymptomatic transmission, our gov't ignored it for months. They also told us the virus is airborne, our gov't ignored this too. Today, finally CDC admits it can be airborne. When will Tam admit this? Our Federal gov't failed Canadians on covid truth.

    Privacy? People must remember that our SIN was supposed to NEVER be used as an ID… You can't even get electricity without giving out your 'slave' SIN number, required by the govt… What makes you think your info won't be eventually available to the govt to use?? Govt doesn't have a good trustworthy record with the people.

    CBC is an extension of a totalitarian new world order. They support the abolishment of freedom of speech, and are pushing a global agenda to retract your rights and freedoms that your ancestors died for. Only covering one side of the story that supports their agenda. And silencing anyone that wants to speak if they say anything that is counter to their agenda. Don't trade in your rights and freedoms for the promise of a struggle free life under the guise of compassion and concern for your individual well being. History is repeating itself just in a different mask. Wake up everyone.

    CBC posts a video about a non binary mechanic in Ontario. Who cares what that mechanic calls themself? Thats not a story. The CBC does not believe in freedom of speech. They are pushing tyranny under the guise of compassion and acceptance. We are going to fight your agenda CBC. You will pay for your hand in this global agenda to strip people of their civil liberties.

    Yes if I was a liberal, I would try and use the cop-out line “ this is not about putting blame on anyone”, that would be the only defense line that I could find to hide the truth. I lost my job because of you declaring an emergency, taking a COVID-19 layoff and you making it legal for my employer to restructure their so-called business when this should be illegal. Every person that were put on a “temporary layoff “ should be called back to work and it should be illegal for an employer to bring in new workers during this time and having them do my job. Oh, did you know that it is illegal for an employer to give someone a notice of a “temporary layoff “ ? If it’s illegal, why am I getting EI if it is illegal ?? Why am I still getting benefits paid by this company and collecting EI with no work and no pay check ? Why isn’t my employer being charged with fraud and being held accountable if this is illegal ? Answer the god damn questions on national tv please. Thank you
