    1. Fat chance of that. CPP and EI deductions just went up Jan 1. Happy New Year Canada πŸ”₯ πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  1. How many deaths and hospital capacity again? Everyone i hear from says they’ve had a cold this holiday season….. Including those who went and got tested for moronic too….

  2. How about we all just live in the Metaverse forever until our eyes bleed and our brains rot? The outside is soooo scary

    1. is he even a real doctor, lol, doesn’t seem to listen or read what the real scientists from around the world say.

  3. Yeah do all those things that didn’t work in the past. I’m done with these “restrictions”, and many restaurants I frequent are as well. Looking forward to civil disobedience.

    1. They did and do work. But they are compromised as soon as the graph line shows a downward trend. It only takes one person to restart a pandemic.

    2. @Alan Macphail

      No they didn’t and don’t work. COVID cases die down in the Summer when the restrictions are lifted.

    3. @Alan Macphail Health Agency of Canada Dec. 23th:
      2020 = 15,787 deaths out of 588,939 cases (2.68% overall case fatality rate)

      2021 = 14,344 deaths out of 1,361,061 cases (1.05% overall case fatality rate)
      An FDA Commissioner even said that the 2 meter rule was made arbitrarily.
      Care to explain how restrictions worked?

  4. We need to be accelerating the spread not slowing it down. Take advantage of this weaker strain and push through.

    1. just like India it picked so high in the spring and cases have now flattened , look at the data worldwide covid meter

    2. @josh77577 A convenient excuse. Was it also “very little testing” when they were hitting 400,000+ cases per day? You can’t have it both ways.

  5. Just let it sink in that despite triple the cases than previous highest point in the uk … their current hospitalizations is less than half it was this same time last year

  6. so which part of the happy new year are we missing here? the happy one, the new, or the year? it seems like nothing at all has changed.

  7. What will happen in two weeks that hasn’t been taken care of in the last two years. Poor decision for the government in my opinion. I will be starting now my two week unpaid vacation.

  8. From the beginning of the year it has been painfully obvious that remote learning in Canada was lacking at best. When they returned to the classrooms my daughter had to be advanced from her grade 1 class to a higher class as an exception, as her entire grade 1 class was at a kindergarten learning level. Her teacher was worried about stifling her advancement. In addition mental health disorders in children are rising. This administration wants to raise another generation of depressed zombies who rely on medication and are dumb, sedated and obedient. One simply cannot be a critical thinker when they are struggling to survive.

    1. Grade levels are just made-up so of course they promote them all. It’s not high school so don’t worry.

    2. My kids online learning here in Ottawa was superb and my children advanced nicely. Not sure what you are talking about. They also don’t have mental illness by being in their own home. If your child is at home and that is causing mental health problems then the problem is bigger than just online school vs in school. The problem is parents allowing their kids to go crazy with no routine and rules and can’t control their kids 100%.

    3. @fraslex I know I am not worried about my girl but I am pissed on behalf of the parents of a room full of grade 1 kids who are still trying to figure out the difference between “b” and “d” and the sounds of letters when they should be reading books by now. All of my kids were reading in grade 1. The teachers are very overwhelmed trying to play catch up and there is no reason for it

    4. @FemBot the entire medical field agrees that online learning causes depression and anxiety among children. This has nothing to do with controlling your kids at home.. I think we are all parenting to the best of our abilities during this pandemic.

  9. Cases should never be the standard in which we base our decisions
    Health Agency of Canada Dec. 23th:
    2020 = 15,787 deaths out of 588,939 cases (2.68% overall case fatality rate)

    2021 = 14,344 deaths out of 1,361,061 cases (1.05% overall case fatality rate)

    1. That’s the % of confirmed cases. It is likely much lower when considering many cases go untested and unconfirmed because the symptoms are minimal.

    2. Deaths WITH covid. They are quite explicit in their (Canadian Government) definition of a covid case. It includes close contacts, assumed cases, and asymptomatic case. If you tested positive before a flight, but had no symptoms, and died in a car crash on the way home, you would be counted as someone who died with covid; +1 to the overall case fatality rate.

  11. They consider to close small businesses and make them homeless and starving to death, great job Ontario experts and government πŸ‘

  13. You can tell this Bogoch guy really enjoys being on TV. He’s not very busy as he’s the Doctor they always bring on. Amazing stuff.

    At the moment we have 1.5 hospitalizations per hospital in Canada. 1830 hospitalzations and over 1200 hospitals.
