  1. So we’ve been under lockdown in peel, Toronto, and York region yet cases are going up lol?

    • @keith williams numbers will go up. The question is by how much. If you think mitigation doesn’t help keep them from exploding I don’t know what to tell you.

      @bevilhive so lockdown to slow the spread, yet completely destroy people’s small businesses and mental health. Sure sounds like you know what you’re saying👌

    • @keith williams nobody enjoys this pal.

    • It’s not a lock down,just restaurants and gyms being closed isn’t lock down,lock down means everything closed but essentials like first time around

      Your not in a lock down. When others are moving around from one place to another.

  2. Never forget. “Science” doesn’t determine when to call for a lock down. The Ideology of the individual with power does. Truth.

    I have a question if we lock down like we did in the spring and through summer what will it do. Will the doctors pay our Bill’s will they feed our families. Will we have to go back on cerb which will already stretched to the limit. Answer those questions give solutions to those questions.

    • That’s right I propose that any politician or doctor calling for more lock downs pay into a fund which will be used to help struggling businesses and the workers who work there who were laid off .

  4. Breaking News ! Kid tripped on his way to school yesterday. New Provincial mandate for every kid to wear a football helmet to school now. All helmets must be monotone in color as to not represent any NFL or CFL team, and to not offend anyone with sensitive eyes.

  5. WHERE IS THAT WE money. this clown has been bought clear as day


  7. Has anyone checked our water supplies? Is this virus multiplying in the drinking water? This virus is spreading through more then air ! Call me crazy but i think it’s a valid idea enough to warrant investigation

    UV light in public space sanitation and HVAC systems.. gov subsidized or otherwise?

    Protect the vulnerable? Why isn’t he proposing that?

  11. Children Day Care Centre are open !!

  12. You need to have more airtime in the ICU’s. Same as cigarette warning pictures. Lock downs don’t show the effect they have ON THE VIRUS for at least 2 WEEKS AND ONE MONTH FOR SURETY.

  13. We’re fooling ourselves alright. Fooling ourselves that more restrictions will work. How are those masks working by the way?

  14. How about strengthening your immune system; forget the face diaper and hiding in your basement. You want to tout ‘health’…promote the solutions that are available to all…how about that doctor? Typical physician…uneducated in natural health and paid by the pharmaceutical companies.

  15. This is just part of there plan to get everyone to take the vaccine! Why can’t anyone see this?

  16. you are the fool.

  17. Are wearing mask even working ?

    • Not when idiots are having a big parties in their houses without wearing them. These are the places we need to send the bylaw officers, not the restaurants.

  18. Only you are out of control Dr

    I think Ford wants Ontario to look like NEW JERSEY USA where they will have freezers outside hospital… Ford keeps on saying we are not like our neighbor USA.😷😷😷

  20. Let’s get absolutely serious about this! No eating for two weeks. Eating means needing food and needing food means shopping and shopping means dying. That settles it! No eating for two weeks.
