      They haven’t thought those up yet although I’m sure it’s spinning around somewhere within that empty brain space

      @Butterfly Lady Unfortunately they have. That’s why they keep talking about “new strains” since May of last year. That will be what they use next to lock down the country for however many times

    • foreshadowing

    If she’s the top doctor, imagine how bad the bottom doctor must be.

      @Mr Popo Now address the data. That is ultimately the only thing that matters.

    • Primmakin Sofis | March 18, 2021 at 6:22 PM | Reply

      @Mr Popo It’s always interesting to see a society steered into a ditch by incompetence, hubris, and/or corruption.

      At least, it is from the outside. If you’re a member of that society, however, I expect the ride is not interesting but instead is unpleasant.

  3. Can’t even trust the doctors when all their predictions have been wrong.

      Certainly their modelling has always been way off .

    • You NEVER could trust Doctors. You are just seeing that more clearly now.

    • @Sherri Lynn please don’t ever go in a hospital then. If you break a leg have a random shaman take care of it. Or y’know, maybe Facebook university will have a DIY post! 😉

    • @Avatinfernus I have not been in a hospital since I had control over my own care….adulthood. Why so cheeky over my choice? I’m not telling you not to go into a hospital and end up with hospital pneumonia. Yes, that’s real.

      for all we know, this virus might be on its last legs but they will not let go.

    I’m also a top doctor, and I say this is not true.

    • @fliipso 7

    • top doctor got an awful lot of time to beat all of doom eternal on ultra nightmare and record and upload it

    • @epicfun2 lol it was one of my pre-med final exams

    • @AngryShark92 fair enough

      The masks are literally snot rags. I’m in Oaxaca Mexico where you have to wear masks everywhere. It’s so hot I’m dripping from everywhere! Never mind when I go into air conditioned supermarket then my glasses fog both slipping all over with my hands and masks wiping, now that’s where germs get everywhere. I’m sure cold winter days the mask is more a germ rag then anything else.

  6. This reminds me of a Simpsons episode..Were Homer is playing with the light switch and says”LIGHT GOES ON, LIGHT GOES OFF , LIGHT GOES ON, LIGHT GOES OFF”…That is what this quote Top doctor is doing..”LOCK DOWN IS ON, LOCK DOWN IS OFF, LOCK DOWN IS ON , LOCK DOWN IS OFF” it is all political manipulation as its finest..

    2 weeks to flatten the curve has turned into 1 yr to flatten the country.

    • @95 92 I stated pandemics aren’t solved in two weeks. If you’re that daft to believe Covid is not an actual pandemic, you need to go back to school, immediately.

    • @Kipp lyons oh yah? how many pandemics have you lived through?

    • @Ann Onymous What are you talking about? You don’t make sense. Who said I lived through a pandemic? lucky for me, I can read and interpret science from past pandemics. You should try and read. One word at a time.

      @Kipp lyons You get what you deserve. Remember that when you are starving due to supply chains being destroyed and your worthless currency due to hyperinflation.
      At least you can say you didn’t get the flu. Coward.

    • @Shawnaldo 7575 New cases have dropped during both lockdowns, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

  8. Gotta love that smug, “holier than thou” look she’s giving in the thumbnail.

  9. Take your 3rd wave and shovel it

    It looks like the only cure for this is going to be a cleansing of government.

      @MissingFreedom Agreed

      Not gonna happen while NDP is the lynchpin, it’s the most power they’re ever gonna have and will refuse to No Confidence even if Trudeau walks into parliament stark naked and demanding to purge the country of minorities.

    • @MissingFreedom thinking that way,,,,,is exactly what the Liberals want to stay in power,,,,, VOTE CONCERVATIVE,,,or put up with the slime,,,,,,,we have running Canada ..
      I’m not saying your stupid,,,,,or trying to hurt your feelings,,,,,,,,but wake up.

      @R P If you think O’Toole is going to be any different than Trudeau… Well, I’m not saying you’re stupid but…….

  11. This crap has to stop….I m just not listening anymore….

  12. I’ve never heard someone say control so many times in one sentence

  13. Why aren’t these “experts” all investigated for financial motives and psychological issues?

  14. let’s perform an AUDIT on who’s paying some of these provincial doctors and where their getting their paycheques.

  15. Lol. Only in Ontario. The rest of the world is already moving on.

  16. she’s so brave to be standing there…and she’s funny too as how they’ve handled COVID is one big joke

  17. “we know these measures work” in regards to masks and social distancing during a press conference for a THIRD WAVE. Lol.

  18. The leaked email in October with a timeline is literally becoming more and more true everyday.
