    huh would have never expected

  2. herd immunity. Is there an abnormal spike in overall death rate or hospitalizations? If not – move along.

  3. stop listening to the news, that all they do run story like that

  4. Remember….vaccines aren’t 100 percent effective….not even close….so even if you get the vaccine you may still get covid….so you ll still have to hide in your home and keep all businesses closed ….how do you know if the vaccine worked for you?….fear fear fear…..that’s gonna be the next tactic to keep everyone scared…

      The common cold is a coronavirus… no vaccines there.

    • Lone Wanderer yeah but the reason we never made a coronavirus vaccine before is because we never really needed to before. We already have immunity against the common cold, and even with other coronaviruses like SARS and MERS in which we don’t have immunity against, they died out before a vaccine could be made, and so funding for SARS and MERS vaccines were cut. What makes COVID-19 different from all the others is that it became so widespread that it simply isn’t going to die out on its own and we don’t have immunity against it. Therefore a vaccine is still possible and is essential if we want to wipe out COVID-19

    • Random Boi
      “they died out before a vaccine could be made so funding was cut”
      We all say really dumb things at times.

    • R G ok let me explain it. When SARS, for example, started spreading, scientists started to design a vaccine that would protect against SARS in case the pandemic got to the point where it wouldn’t go away naturally by quarantining the sick and would probably continue to exist for several years in various parts around the world, much like COVID-19, where a vaccine would be the easiest and most effective way to protect everyone from the virus. However, unlike COVID-19, SARS died out on it’s own before a vaccine could be made and approved, thus all funding for the development of those vaccines was cut since a SARS vaccine wasn’t necessary anymore. Seriously, how hard is it for you to understand this?

    But BLM protesters were magically immune. ……. interesting

  11. Yet the protest Trudeau was at didn’t cause any spike at all, did it?
    Wow what great news coverage!
    If I did your job I’d cry myself to sleep at night with nightmares of comparisons to the propagandists of the 40s.

    Amazing, isn’t it? Any celebration of Canada is met with cries of “racism” and “colonialism” — and now they (along with any protests to reopen businesses so business owners can support themselves) are responsible for Covid resurgence. But any time it’s a protest against Canada, and/or for alt-left causes (like BLM), they are magically exempt from being problematic.

    It says something when the hangover from “illegally partying” is far worse than this covid flu.

    From what I can tell from the headlines, a piece of cardboard with BLM written on it actually repels the virus. That was the party attendee’s mistake. They forgot their cardboard signs.

  15. Lunatics are running our healthcare and the employees are 1 step below for protecting payroll instead of human lives.

    We ain’t New Zealand. They’re brains are more developed. That includes the government.

    • Says someone who confuses their with they’re. You just proved your own point about new Zealand being smarter than Canada with your own stupidity.

  18. Just claim your having a blm protest then your immune .
