  1. She thinks she’s in the house of commons with that answer

  2. The data pointing to restaurants and bars as hotbeds of transmission comes not from the recent data gathered in Canada, because those data include the period in which non-essential businesses were in lock down, and so are not reliable non-indicators, instead those data come from outside of Canada and in past history of pandemics that clearly show that restaurants and bars have ALWAYS been hotbeds of transmission.

    She doesn’t give a crap. If the smaller businesses can’t open up, they should also close Walmart. We don’t need Walmart to get groceries–that’s what grocery stores are for. Screw Walmart. However, the government only cares about making the richer richer and bankrupting the middle class.

    Most definitely unfair. Why 8s Walmart , lLowes, Home Depot and Amazon etc open. It not a lockdown if we all arent lockdown. This is most certainly to hurt mom snd pop businesses

    • Small private owned businesses have no place in the NEW WORLD ORDER

      @Al Jonstone your stupid there is no new world older your definitely some middle aged ontarion who just believes every conspiracy you see in ur Facebook groups but they obviously aren’t doing this right and I agree with you there destroying small businesses while leaving the masisve buissnes opene witch probably have higher chances of spreading corona because there so packed and everyone is lining up at the same stores

  6. If politicians want to enact lockdowns their pay should be stopped completely as well, just like the small business owners. Politicians are parasites
