      There is an extension in Chrome (it is still there so keep hitting the thumbs down) but you can see it with the extension.

    1. @K L no studies hahaha think my friend how did this virus get released accidentally or not. Studying it. How was this virus made h1n1 scientific studies. They know more about it then they let on. I can’t talk to anyone so I’ll educated. Have a nice day

    2. @Edward Carberry no muzzles don’t work when used in correctly did you know your suppose to wear a new mask every 4 hours???

  2. When anyone in our government is caught breaking these ridiculous rules , they should be given a lifetime in jail as well as lose their benefits and pensions.

    1. There definitely needs to be a government accountability act put into law in Canada, or at least refined if we already have one so each member of the parties parliament, the horgans and the henry’s lose their benefits and pensions and pay back debt our of their own pockets

  3. Love how Bonnie laughs about the new years question. We know you and your friends were out partying breaking all your rules on new years.

  4. Why’s she always sound like she’s panicking? And why are there outbreaks in fully vaxxed hockey players. πŸ€”

    1. @Speeedster and not one vaxxed player is very sick either. Vaccines work. Meanwhile ICU patients in Alberta are 78% unvaxxed, yet the unvaxxed are only 15% of the population.

  5. Spreads easier, not as severe- sounds like we should let this one pass around the can Bonnie. Better this one than the next variant that is REALLY deadly.

    1. @Seer-of-things end deadly for all those unvaxxed twits in ICU so confident in their immune system, which worked about as well as their brain.

    2. @alan4sure <-------Psycosis------< psychosis [sīˈkōsΙ™s] NOUN a severe mental disorder in which thought and emotions are so impaired that contact is lost with external reality.

    1. @John Mactavish How could you not have a negative attitude on this? Our fashy gov is loving this power grab why would they let it go?

  6. Clearly all measures we have agreed to the last 2 years have had no effect.

    Stay close to your family and friends this holiday.

  7. I would just like to point out that the politicians that break their own rules, the police that enforce them and public health folks that think restrictions work have not missed a paycheck for almost two years.

    1. Or the health care workers working flat out with no breaks or holidays for the last two years and lack of support from the very public that needs them the most…

    2. Exactly of course government employees want a shut done they get paid regardless. My neighbour is a government food inspector and he hasn’t been to work in a year and a half still getting his full pay.

  8. The Canadian government is overreaching into our lives! It’s time to ignore these fools and start living life again.

    1. Show me what part of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms gives you carte blanche to be a public health risk.

  9. You realize how frightening it is when they say they’re putting restrictions in place because there’s not enough information on the new varient. You will never have enough information on a new varient because it’s NEW. Therefore precautionary restrictions will be put in place EVERY season. Realize this could be the new norm every year.

    1. Yes government and public health need their powers restricted they seem to forget we have rights. We don’t need permission to live our lives. They need to stop their interference.

    2. @Moni Kins Please show me what part of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms permits you to be a public health risk.

  10. its like you’re going to have a mild cold but you need to panic and pretend were’re all going to die. Listening at that woman I feel embarrassed for her.
