    Party at fords cottage this weekend, everyone in Ontario is invited. It’s to promote herd immunity and get things back in operation.

      @roof pizza and I’ll bring Dr. Andrew Kaufman to set the Covid-1984 record straight.
      I prefer “Canadian” thanks pal.

  2. What is a long weekend at this point? It’s been a long weekend since St. Patrick’s day.

    I’m psychic.. the new normal will be political assassinations.

  4. It’s all B.S at this point

  5. wanna be friends?

  6. And did they get corona by going out? Probably not. I’m so sick of government making statements with no solid data or reasoning to back up their commands.

    Doug…they have been coming to Grey/Bruce since April and they DO NOT buy their own supplies they crowd up our grocery stores and buy up all our supplies…because theres less waiting here 😕

      Lol. Your supplies. There not yours until you purchase them. It’s a free country, if anyone owned property there they have the same rights. Period

  8. Okay you families with a cottage or favorite campsite, get out and enjoy your Canada. Don’t let China ruin our summer! Just leave those with compromised health concerns at home. Wear masks around the camp fire (smokey). Wear gloves when baiting the worms and sun glasses on the lake. If someone breaks the social distance rules, throw them in the lake (freezing). That will smarten them up some!

    Ford is doing a great job. He is entitled to do basic things to secure his life too! Carry on Doug 🙂

    If you have a cottage go anyway. Don’t listen to this covid nonsense.
