    Our Government is completely useless

  3. I’m not surprised either, I’m starting to think Justin Trudeau paid to get through school.

  4. I can go on an international flight but I can’t have a coffee and soup at the local cafe

  5. The only way to “test” for this virus is to wind up the PCR cycles to 50 per sample

    I’m not surprised, the Airports are wide open for business while regular citizens are imprisioned in their homes! 🇨🇦🤬🇬🇧

  8. How does this change Long Term Care Inspectors from “trying” to perform their jobs? Is this another disease that prevents them from going into the homes? See Ford Bemoans Taking Bullets. See Canadian Military performing diaper changes. On and on and on. Another reason? But here’s a better question, why didn’t the police inspect the LTC homes, because they would respond to Puppy Mills operating in poor conditions? Where were the ‘Whistle-Blowers’ on the Inspectors? Is the Food Inspectors working out of the same Unions, are they going to be overworked as well??

    • They’re all to blame. When you point a finger at someone else, and 15 others are doing the same, one will come back at you. It’s time for politicians to stop playing the blame game and work together to fix this mess.

  9. 36000 walk through Pearson airport WEEKLY

      It was insane to reopen international travel. What exactly was the thought process behind that, Trudeau?

      That’s crazy why would anyone want to be travelling right now the virus is every where. Close person that airport does not need to be open. What a joke thanks Justin

      @Miss Dark Humour The airlines dropped a briefcase full of money on his desk and he thought “International travel sounds safe enough…”

      @Blank Space Provided Bingo! Follow the money…always…

  10. So why are we still flying. So stupid

    Well this doesn’t surprise me

  12. And yet Dr Tam has not mutated to be more effective.

    • She’s to blame for this whole mess. She said back in February that COVID was at low risk of entering the Country. Then she said cloth masks don’t work. Then she said the U.K. variant wasn’t in Canada. Anyone else think that after three strikes, she should be kicked to the curb? She would be with any other job.

    • 🤪

  13. Well the Stork did not bring it. How did they get it is the million dollar question…..

      Where did the original virus come from that is the 1 billion dollar question and it’s an important question to answer can’t avoid another pandemic if you don’t know where this virus came from. 😱😱😱😱😱

  14. I really think enforcing 14 days quarantine for travelers entering Canada is a needed. have designated taxi sending them to designated hotel/airbnb, this creates job opportunity for them in this pandemic. Also verify and capture potential infected patient from entering our country. We can’t just lock down our small businesses while not having any monitoring on the travelers entering.

    how come the Covids in over populated countries were social distancing is NOT possible actually HAD it’s Covid NEVER mutated?

    I’m not surprised we have a government that doesn’t know what they’re doing from day one of the pandemic The federal government has not issued no flying what do you think. Your locking small businesses and taking away the kids joy at blue mountain.. which has all the mandatory social distancing and mass wearing, but yet on a plane we’re shoulder to shoulder packed . I hope the Ford government rub forward really does what he says he’s going to do we need to do something about this.
    Like I said it was already here and where do you think it came from, not from blue mountain… Traveling come on
