    Nobody tells me that there’s a rock concert going on in Toronto. It seems like I’m the last person to know.

    He thought he was at a rock concert. Turns out he just had headphones on.

    City News reported on that park yesterday saying everyone was distancing and doing well. Don’t know who to believe

      I make my own facts up as i go. Works for me 🤣🤣🤣

    • Lol, you need to check time stamps, city’s Saturday video shows what Ford is talking about. City’s second video shows the social distancing that happened on sunday due to increased police presence.

      If it’s on the telalievision?

  7. You said this, “Go get tested … you will not be turned away.” Assessment centres can only be accessed by appointment and walk-ins are not accepted.

    John Tory was there without a mask and you’re the guy who went to your cottage a couple days after telling others not to.

    • When politicians don’t follow the regulations they set, we’re being ruled, not governed.

    • But but but, I heard he was there, checked it out everything was fine and returned home. He also did not visit or speak to any neighbours. Now our PMoron crossed a border to get to his cottage and had a Photo Op Easter egg hunt ffs.

      John Tory stopped by my *kissing booth* , but it is ok I am no longer infected. Well that’s not quite true.

      they know best what is best for everyone except themselves!

  9. We shut down our economy for a virus that has killed 1 percent of those who got it and I’m being generous. This is not about health but control by our governments.

    • It should be noted that the combination of incubation times, asymptomatic cases, and onset of infection to death lag time matter as well. We’ve not seen the extent of deaths yet of our first wave. About half have recovered from our 86,000 confirmed cases at this time with 6,533 deaths. Give it time.

      About 8 percent of confirmed and resolved cases have died. Have you ever read the Canadian epidemiology report?

      @NUMBER_SIX you can chat as you like. HAVE YOU picked up Covid-19 body bags or wear PPE for 14 freaking straight hours working to save lives of Covid-19 patients and not knowing if you’ll be a patient during the Pandemic rather than a Doctor or Nurse, slept inside of your car in the garage because you don’t wanna put your family as risk, got turned aways from Banks or Phramacy at the entrance because of your job??? I GUESS NOT🤔🤔Since the ECONOMY is your first priority; have you seen the armored vans or trucks driving behind hearses/funeral coaches as they travelled to city’s cementries for final burials???? Merci beaucoup.

    • Your smoking crack

    • mmmmmmm….. _crack_ ………..

    Tests all come out positive and all laced with the Covid-19. So no thank you for the test. If we have no symptoms ..then why get a test??? If we don’t have cancer..why would we get radiation ???

    Let the virus run it’s course before a war starts

  12. Brenda Paul | May 24, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

    Keeping the economy shut down is going to take more lives than the virus. We need to watch what other countries are doing and follow their example.

  13. Shouldn’t you be at your cottage ??

  14. Doug is getting to be a soft liberal pinky.

  15. He said she said ya gotta ask yourself why did it go so far. I’m sure lawyers are going to be very busy in the coming months.

    I have to say I’m sick of ford’s constant fatherly speeches. He’s starting to sound more and more like blackface. Maybe he should think twice before making a trip to the cabin??!!

    • Doug Ford is capable and absorbed ultimately in his own self-interests….the characteristics of a psychotic on cocaine.

    Everyone just shut the Medea off and just live jeez..

  19. You killed rock concerts, and my job, remember?!

      Projection? Maybe you should put down the steel pipe so you can look at things a bit clearer yourself.
