      A year ago, you understood why your surgeon was wearing a mask. You probably would have sued if it it turned out they weren’t. Did how disease transmission work change in that time or are you maybe just reading too many “alternative facts” on Facebook?

    • @Blank Space Provided give me a break 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  3. He won’t answer questions on small buisnesses directly

  4. The fines are serious. If your a business, not making sure rules are followed, will bankrupt you. As it should.

    Biggest joke of federal and provincial governments. Just shut everything down; no provincial travel, no international travel. If we did this from the get go we wouldn’t be in this crap.

    • This is my thinking as well.

    • Not true. I was in South Korea during the pandemic in 2020.
      When I entered the country I had no required test, no quarantine, everything was open (bars, cafes, etc.) and you know? They flattened the curve during that time!
      I’m not an “anti-masker” or anything, but, these lockdowns don’t seem to be the solution.

    • It was all imported via open air travel. 36000 walked through Pearson unchecked for 8 months.

  6. What are essential businesses? With no definition, there can be no ruling!

    • An essential business is essential to the one doing it to feed his family and pay his bills. It’s offensive to tell anyone they’re not necessary.

    Blah blah blah blah he must be a friend of Trudeau he’s not answering the questions correctly

  12. They have the money to pay the fines if they don’t pass.

  13. well thank goodness he told them he was coming on the weekend ,you know so they can be ready for them

  14. we need someone who represents the middle class and under, but we need someone with courage to stand up to all these no’s

  15. A diasporic quest for power. Please read it before the next federal election

  16. why are you telling the big box store a heads up when you are going

    Public officials need to be held personally responsible for decisions made…

  18. Hope Walmart gets fined into oblivion. Never liked Walmart.
