  1. I declare a state of emergency on your obsession with cheese burgers

    Watching this guy stammer his way through a prepared statement is equal parts sad/hilarious.

  3. Susan Stephen | April 7, 2021 at 8:16 PM | Reply

    Yet his personal business has stayed open throughout the entire pandemic. This guy is a criminal.

    • @Sunshine Happy J BEZZOS 177 billion. Uhm. Happy
      Small businesses. Zero gain? Sad

    • @Sunshine Happy answer to what?, I just commented on the mans business?

      @Lin A That’s not the issue here, it’s how he managed to get essential service status for DECA. I get it, stickers to help the manage the pandemic. Sounds like a bit of loophole. There is nothing wrong with him owning a business. And if all printing companies are allowed to stay open than it’s all fair and square.

    • @Sunshine Happy: George was ahead of his time!!!

  4. Looking forward to finally enjoy outside when I retire in 40 years.

    Take away their power trip and demand they don’t get paid.

  6. When I was a kid I once watched a hilarious yet poignant movie called “Groundhog Day”.

    Little did I know I’d someday have my very own version of groundhog day IRL.

    When I migrated to Canada, I was told English is one ridiculously difficult language. I didn’t believe until I watched this video. Ford speaks 45 long minutes to say “Friends, I am clueless.”

      @angel none 😂

    • Funny how I never hear about ICUs in Texas and Florida overflowing, even though there is no mask mandates and everything is completely open.. Shows how incompetent the Canadian government is that they still are carrying on with this ridiculousness

      @Jo Jo yes…lol dumb..go take a Tylenol

      Some English is just butchered though. All languages have Latin though.

    So you’ll be at home then Mr. Ford? Can we check in on you daily to make sure you’re “staying safe”?

  10. 4 weeks? This is exactly what they said how long the quarantine would last in March 2020. Lfmao

    • “15 days to flatten the curve”

    • Normie Peachey | April 7, 2021 at 10:09 PM | Reply

      @mechanoid2k I believe they signed for lock down for 1 – 2 years if needed, but told public 15 days to prevent panic. Yet everyone still panicked and hoarded all the toilet paper 😂

    • @Normie Peachey what does if needed mean. It wasn’t needed for a day let alone a year or 2

  11. How much is he collecting for this now and lining his pocket ?

    • HolyEyeWasHere | April 8, 2021 at 1:02 AM | Reply

      They probably have dirt on him.

      Last year he was worth 3 million and now 50 million. The rich are getting richer and we are becoming more poor

    • @William Hudson We should stop paying taxes , teach them a lesson. They would quit on the spot !
      They are all in it to get filthy rich. Look at Ford gaining weight while many are starving .
      What goes around comes around , it’s just a matter of time !

  12. Can the government put out “state of emergency” warnings without commercials?

    • @aspalovin Stack silver, if you’re reading this. Literally convert a large percentage of your savings into silver (not gold yet, do your own research). The lockdowns are to keep the velocity of money low so that the inflation is delayed, and silver is still on a fire sale due to price suppression. Unfortunately, all my silver was lost recently in a boating related incident.

    • The govt did… this is a news org channel on YouTube. Subscribe or don’t complain… You’re the one getting your news on YouTube.

      @rx Well that honestly just sounds like you’re a pirate lmao 🤣

    • Marlene Holly | April 8, 2021 at 5:53 PM | Reply

      Lol ..

    • Canada is a joke right now

  13. Park our vehicles to block the entrance to Deco Labels, since they aren’t essential, it won’t matter if we block it since they will be closed, right?

    • Christopher Chirpac | April 8, 2021 at 12:43 AM | Reply

      @Maxx P. But no one is allowed to buy non-essential things for one month. Many manufacturing plants make non-essential products. Therefore, Ford’s sticker plant is non-essential.

    • depending on the label, and what it’s used for, it could be deemed essential.

    • SilentKnight43 | April 8, 2021 at 9:59 AM | Reply

      @crawz83 That lame argument could be made for practically anything that’s manufactured.

    • @Christopher Chirpac It doesn’t matter whether they can sell it or now. MANUFACTURING PLANTS are essential. They can keep it in the warehouse till they can sell it.

    • Mark Langeman | April 8, 2021 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      We can do better than that let’s shut down the 401

  14. I’m sure the Beer Store and LCBO will be fully open as essential. But the regular business owner is shut down.

    • And they will remain open until every other business closes and then LCBO will be the ultimate monopoly.

    • @Apocalypse Meow Sure it is but doesn’t mean they have to stay 100% open, They can offer Curbside easy enough like they make even stores with 99% less foot traffic do.

    • Kyler Markle | April 8, 2021 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      If you’re dependent on alcohol you can die without it, so like… yes?

    • @Kyler Markle addiction doesn’t exist

    • Sad because I’m an alcoholic and am very functional, I would be in a hospital with millions going through withdrawal. I’m sure the LCBO is still open not because they are philanthropic, 100 percent sure because they make millions….

    I have made it just over half way through, and I am finished! I am soooo sick of them, not actually answering the questions being asked!

  16. Never trust someone who says “my friend”

    Why don’t they all the ad revenue they make from these videos declaring lockdowns to the small businesses there hurting?

    • Joshua O'Brien | April 8, 2021 at 5:30 AM | Reply

      Because this is being provided to you by a news organization with its own expenses, not the government.

    Yes lock everyone down and don’t forget to keep the airport open to
    let in the “ variants “

    • Raymond Payne | April 8, 2021 at 8:05 AM | Reply

      I agree every province needs to do a lock down then nothing can move pass the borders of their province and this tops plain and simple too easy or am I just a Stun as me arse in thinking we are correct.

    • Christine Sevigny | April 8, 2021 at 8:37 AM | Reply

      The variants are the government. There is no proof of what they are saying. They aren’t giving any facts just lockdowns.

    • Gayle Paulak | April 8, 2021 at 10:31 AM | Reply

      dont forget the border in quebec, open to illegals ~

    • Old Yeller's Channel | April 8, 2021 at 1:24 PM | Reply

      And Roxham Road, which quietly reopened months ago.

    • Old Yeller's Channel | April 8, 2021 at 1:25 PM | Reply

      @Chan Ganga They have NO RIGHT to shut down anything you FASCIST!!!!

  19. I feel for the small business owners out here. I wish you the best.

    5 years from now, we’ll be warned about the 23rd wave — this will only end when the public tells the leaders to go “Float” themselves.
