      Not true. You been asleep? Things got a lot better after the first shutdown. With the coming of of warmer weather, it was known the rate of spread would decline and it did. Things did get better. However, it was also expected that as the weather got colder after summer, the rate of spread would increase and it has. Another shutdown was needed to get it under control but it didn’t come and the spread is now out of control. Only another shutdown – for a longer period – could bring it back under control. This is not rocket science. The virus spreads through humans. If humans are restricted (either of their own volition or by enforced restriction) in their movement, the spread of the virus is restricted. Believe it or not, it’s as simple as that!

      @Lalith de Alwis What is the infection death rate again? Less than 0.04% with the median age of death in the 80 years old.
      Go hide below your bed.

    • @Lalith de Alwis you speak garbage, the death rate continues to drop and all you talk about is the spread rate. Infections don’t matter since they are primarily in the age groups with little to no chance of getting serious symptoms.

    • @Lalith de Alwis it is not out of control. All purported goals of lockdown happened two days before the first 14 day lockdown. The scientific consensus was clear in May that the government response was completely out of touch with the risk of this virus. The data shows that we should have been progressively reopening on April first and there has been no reason to shut down since. We need to stop the misinformation and get back to work. It’s all there at statscan. Take off your mask and get outside with your friends

  6. Ah yes, listening to a small selection of “health experts” to dictate how to run our economy. Makes sense.

  7. Experts said smoking is healthy

  8. Health experts are not economists. By the look of your gut and triple chin don’t look like you listen to either. Only walmart shareholders

  9. Experts of death and destruction 🤨

  10. Didn’t they just walk by each other not within 6 ft. With no masks. So why can’t small stores be open at 50% capacity?

    • Lalith de Alwis | December 2, 2020 at 4:29 PM | Reply

      I don’t know why small stores should be open at 50% capacity but it is certainly not because two guys just walked by each other within 6 ft. with no masks!

      @Lalith de Alwis 2.5% of COVID cases arising out of more than 5,000 documented outbreaks were from food/drink/retail establishments. That’s according to the federal government’s own data. You are more likely to contract the virus from an outbreak at work or in a healthcare setting.

    • @Lalith de Alwis I’m sure you don’t run your own business so why would you care

    • You already know why

    • Yes. No. And personally, I like having health advice legally enforced on me by men weighing 350-lb.

  11. Listen to different health experts that will probably give you the opposite advice of what your doing, but you rather hire your own health experts!!

  12. Best experts big Pharma can buy….. they are ALL BOGUS… Mr. Ford, you’re so full of, well you know what…

  13. No you don’t, you HAVE to LISTEN to your CONSTITUENTS!!

  14. why do I need a hermetically sealed suit to work in a virus lab going through decontamination and protocols when all i need is a mask? Cases no deaths. Total 166 deaths outside of seniors homes.

    Hey, Doug stop listening to YOUR health experts! They are always wrong. How about you pay attention to those thousands of doctors who told all this is BS! Just once!

    • John Kellerman | December 2, 2020 at 3:58 PM | Reply

      Thousands of doctors? Can you provide a link to this information I want to know!

    • @John Kellerman
      Look-up and read The Great Barrington Declaration to start.

      Zero REAL doctors are saying this, they are however saying that they are having troubles, because they can’t survive their shifts cause they are worn down.

      @John Kellerman
      Short list:
      Dr. Russell Jaffe
      Dr. Thomas Levy
      Dr. Ron Hunninghake
      Dr. Andrew Saul
      Dr. Sunetra Gupta
      Dr. Jay Bhattacharya
      Dr. Martin Kulldorff
      Dr. Roger Hodkinson
      Dr. Carl Heneghan

      @Live And Inspired patently false

  16. Doug, you are an elected official and leader of the Ontario Government. START LEADING and stop following.

    • Most Politicians have families, perhaps someone is threatening them to enforce this legislation or else , David Suzuki tried to expose the CDC’s for Lyme Disease and someone ran his father down and killed him. They driver was never caught.

  17. Listening to the health experts has worked so well up to this point, right?

  18. Can we talk about false-positives?
