    I just became a liberal now and I want free money. Send it.

    • Only conservatives get free money. That’s how we get them to vote liberal.

      @sgtSYKE not true you dont gotta pay it back

    • You can have 2000 a month for free, but they’re going to ruin you at tax time….. oh but folks struggling on ODSP can’t have this much. Or OAS. It all makes sense, eh?

      @sgtSYKE I thought they create money every time the bank enters a loan in the database. The money doesn’t actually exist.

    • ​@Santa The Claus Fiat money which value is “dictated” by words only and the “trust” in those words. Though in a system like ours, its backed by the value of tradeable commodity in the treasury. Money is a “share” or a “percentile” of that “treasure” and the trust in it. A treasure that can grow or shrink in size or value through trade and gathering/>resource owing<. "Financial Backers" with their own treasuries usually do expect repayment for lending a hand.

  2. What a joke.!

  3. That’s why They’re Laying off Hospital staff

    • @DeuPKay sure it is

    • Yes, because they are “over run”. My son needs wisdom teeth removed and can’t, because of this lie. He is eating Tylenol and Advil to deal with the pain and has been since June. Liars, scammers, the war is on.

    • @Ron R sorry about that hope he is ok

    • @Teg He’s Ok, he’s a trooper. but it bothers me a lot to see him taking so much of this crap to help him deal with pain. Advil, Tylenol, Orajel Ex Strength and an Ice pack. Repeat when necessary. Since June, simply to get teeth pulled.

    • @Ron R Find a new dentist? If your doctors are going along with the false pandemic, I’d say it’s quite obvious you need to find new ones anyways.

    I feel like these “experts” are making things up as they go along.
    These “experts” seem like “experts” in double speak, much like our corrupt useless politicians, cons and lefties.

  7. the funniest part was when he said “they’re just trying to be honest with the data” lol i nearly fell off my chair

      The ironic part is, the government produces plentiful amounts of detailed COVID data — yet it appears no “journalist” nor “expert” is aware of it. THE GOVERNMENT’S OWN DATA shows clearly the threat from COVID to the large majority of Canadians has been greatly exaggerated. Yet almost no one looks at that data for themselves.

    • I like your name, and your avatar. I laughed too.

    • @D what tha…are you my virtual doppelganger?

    • @Call Me Ishmael I work in healthcare, I’ve dealt directly with Covid outbreaks, what you’re doing here is straight up telling porky-pies. I don’t know if you’re just ignorant or you’re lying.

    • @Pokarot Why did the CDC change their death numbers then ? Less then 13 000 actually died from covid . You are the one who is lying

  8. Comedy gold.
    Hard to see a strained system, when hospitals are virtually empty.

    So enjoying the comments while I can. Lot of virtual book burning by Gootube and Facebook.

    so sweden was never overwhelemed but here in Canada we will be? we in a 3rd world country?

  11. Jesse Selinger | November 11, 2020 at 6:19 PM | Reply

    Weird the doctors in westlock sit around in a empty hospital while making the only person that came into the hospital wait hours before even talking to you. Canada isnt near the greatest country to live in

  12. I think what you mean is that health systems will be strained by knee-jerk overreactions committed by the government, based on some kind of theory that doesnt involve any evidence of danger warranting extreme health measures.

  13. deaths in Canada are down this year over last 🤔 according to statscan. how can that be during a pandemic so horrible we had to shut down our economy. It just doesn’t make sense….

    I pity the fool who still believes the news.

    This ‘expert’ pulled a Pinocchio; his nose grew from lying too much.

  16. I was at the hospital in Richmond Hill for a broken hip and collarbone and in my lifetime I have never seen a hospital so empty,I asked the nurse about covid and she chuckled and said no comment!!!!

      I have family that work in hospitals. It’s all Timmies runs and Tiktok videos. More die from much more common illnesses.

    These criminals ‘doctors’ need to be rounded up and push images for pushing false narrative.

    • 🤣😂 well let’s hope you don’t end up in a hospital where these, so called “fake” doctors you speak of work.

    • @Cole Soucy Its just as easy for pharma to buy a doctor as it is for them to buy a politician lol Wake up they are Bought pharma shills

  18. How can anything be strained by a non-existent virus? The only strain happening is the draconian measures the governments have put in place.

  19. Procession of Chains | November 11, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

    quick double down on a failed treatment(lockdowns)

    Maybe this guy should get laid off and see how he likes lockdowns

  20. The only thing strained is the reputation of this “doctor” and this network.
