  1. Here we go with case numbers again.
    Let me guess it’s because of the super duper scary delta variant we know nothing about that has also been the dominant strain in UK since the beginning of 2021. Perhaps UK can help Canada out with some info

    1. No Vax is even fully approved in Canada. All are only temporary authorization under a Interim Order.

    1. Sweden far outpaces it’s Scandinavian neighbors in Covid-19 deaths , with 567 deaths per million compared to Denmark’s 106 per million , Finland’s 59 per million & Norway’s 47 deaths per million . The Swedish figure is more equal to Italy’s 581 deaths per million .

    2. @William Star Yes, because Sweden did a poor job of protecting its long-term care residents, which the country’s public health administration admits.

      Also, consider:

      142 per 100,000 = per capita rate of COVID deaths in Sweden
      131 per 100,000 = per capita rate of COVID deaths in Quebec

      89.04% = percent of COVID deaths aged 70+ in Sweden
      90.89% = percent of COVID deaths aged 70+ in Quebec

      Sweden = 10.2 million population
      Quebec = 8.1 million population

      Sweden = minimal restrictions
      Quebec = massive restrictions, including a provincial curfew

      Similar population size, similar per capita rate, very different public health approaches.

    3. @Maynard _Sweden far outpaces it’s Scandinavian neighbors in Covid-19 deaths , with 567 deaths per million compared to Denmark’s 106 per million , Finland’s 59 per million & Norway’s 47 deaths per million_

      Now compare the COVID death definition used by Sweden to that used in Norway.

      Sweden’s definition is broad whereas Norway’s definition is narrow.

      Definitions matter, as the U.K. amply illustrates: it uses two concurrent COVID death definitions, and there is a 19% difference in total fatalities between the two definitions.

      Change the definition and you change the count.

      In Canada, both Ontario and British Columbia use a definition of a COVID death so broad as to be absurd.

  2. Hmm, the “conspiracy theorists” have pretty much called the last 18 months. Wonder if there’s an ulterior motive for the vaccines?

  3. “cases” lol.
    Is anyone actually ill?
    Has a single previously healthy person needed medical attention?

    1. NO hospitalizations.

      Also NO mention of exactly how many of these “18 cases” were vaxxed (we DO know that it’s at least ONE).

    2. Stop asking critical questions, the government wants you to just take their word for it and just get jabbed!!

    1. @MetaView7 We do that in regards to the flu. An average of 7,333 Canadians died from influenza and pneumonia each year from 2015 through 2019.

      I don’t recall any mass panic nor hysteria over those deaths during those years.

  4. Cases means positive tests not sickness and death. We know the tests give false positives. Think about this Canadians.

  5. In other news, scientists have just discovered that water is wet
