  1. there were 1000 cases in ONE meat packing plant & only 3 deaths, ALL of which had underlying health conditions & were elderly.The plant is operating just fine as ALL the other cases recovered.

    • Well said!!

    • How exactly are they controlling me? Are they gonna leap from facemasks to a brain chip? Lmao. You don’t have to wear a mask if you don’t believe it, but there is no propaganda or false data.

      So what. Are u saying this three deaths are irrelevant because they are old or had cancer or whatever illnesses they had prior? If someone killed your grandparents I guess you wouldn’t mind right, they were old anyways right?

      don’t forget about the 20 of them with permanent lung damage, 8 of which will probably be on oxygen bottles for the rest of their shortened lives, 6 others with permanent kidney damage and another 5 that will die within the next few months from blood clots. (those are the approximate underestimated numbers based on 1000 victims) The news loves talking about the deaths, that’s sexy and sells… someone on an oxygen bottle doesn’t sound sexy.

    • How is wearing a mask being controlled by the left? Is my mask a lefty lol. Just because I believe in science and medicine i’m a leftist lol.

  2. This will all be a joke when the whole thing disappears after Nov.3.

  3. How about “My business, My choice”?
    If you choose to break the by-law, stay out of my store & my space!

    • @Lady Love It’s a by law in my area.

    • @Phyllis Michailidis Do you protest drinking and driving and smoking indoors too?

    • Jack Hainings | July 20, 2020 at 6:21 PM | Reply

      They are going around infecting others intentionally. Why should we pay for their healthcare?

      @Mr. Nobody that should be my choice whether I protest or not.. Why all of sudden it mandatory to wear a mask? I don’t trust my government to tell me what is right for me I am praying for all the businesses and stores because the vaccines are next they will FORCE you and your staff to get them and if you don’t COMPLY they will shut up down 1984 so enjoy your FREEDOM while you still can.. That is why I keep saying Welcome to CHINA… Do your research… 🙏 For JUSTICE 🇨🇦 🇺🇲 🌍

    • @Phyllis Michailidis I will continue to wear my mask to protect you from me.
      I truthfully hope you stay safe & happy.

  4. So! How about those Blue Jays? Oh wait!

  5. I prefer the term “disease cultists”

  6. Masks such a big news cast. What about the trudeau scandal. You paid schills.

    • As much as the mask protests are probably a bigger deal agreed. Even amidst this we still need to call out nepotism when we see it.

  7. They don’t want to wear mask or their choice, well it’s their choice to die from Covid19. Give them the freedom to die sooner.

    • No medical coverage for non maskers if they get it.

    • @Theresa Gould-Haniff LOL. I would gladly let you have that last ICU bed. Ask for a ventilator while you are there. Government says it’s very effective against Covid 😉

    • Theresa Gould-Haniff | July 20, 2020 at 6:32 PM | Reply

      Stewie G just remember that not everyone in the ICU is on a ventilator and I might be there with a condition that is not COVID related. Even one of your own family members might need an ICU bed for a totally unrelated condition. But if the system is inundated with COVID cases it uses up beds and overwhelms staff so I or one of your loved ones might not get the care that in ordinary times is taken for granted.

      Yeah, that scary 99%+ survival rate..errbody gonna die

    • Sonia Khanali | July 20, 2020 at 10:20 PM | Reply

      But if they don’t wear a mask we’re also in danger

    My body my choice lol.

    Must be the masks

  10. Well I have seen a Doctor going into ICU where he was supposed to be gowned up in different gowns , gloves and masks per each room and he wore absolutely no protection during each patients.

  11. Why do none of the business’ and officials mandating masks talk about how many microns the virus itself is? Oh yeah cause that would destroy the mask debate all together and prove that it’s nothing more than a compliance test.

    According to other headlines from this station, all you need is a piece of cardboard with BLM written on it to repel the virus. So pass a law that everyone has to carry one when in public.

    As deaths decrease but cases rise 🤭🤔

  14. maxmillion7007 | July 20, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

    so… do these idiots also protest against no smoking areas? wearing of seatbelts? obey stop signs and traffic lights? Support drunk driving? Do they even understand the reason for the masks? I get the impression they think it is to protect themselves….it does a little(about 15%) but the masks are about the mask wearer not spreading the virus in case they are infected and don’t know it yet.

  16. a week ago we had no new cases in ON …..

  17. 167 cases in a population of over 12 million here in Ontario. That is reason to panic.

  18. To everyone that refuses to wear a mask, I hope you get Covid, then realize it was your fault, and your fault only.

    It’s my body and if I get it, why can’t I spread it to others, it’s my body?
