    1. There is total competence on gov part. Weak competence on people’s part that creates need for gov to act. Let’s just DO what we know we’re supposed to do.

    2. @michelle beaulieu I totally disagree. If the government would be competent it would provide vaccines to all by now, it would have one CLEAR message regarding rules and restrictions- not this ‘today this- tomorrow that’.
      Now they finally are calling for Ford’s resignation- I hope he is taking Trudeau and his dog and pony show with him.
      A complete failure at the cost of Canadians. Shame on Trudeau!

  1. Let’s ban outdoor activities and close playgrounds and trails because all the transmissions have been indoor transmissions.

    1. stupid is as stupid does…. fact is they have no clue about what they are doing, knee jerk reactions to situations never do well.

    2. Maskless indoor workers are the main culprit. Ford only does things for show. eg Remember he said we would get made in Ontario N96 masks? Ford talks big and then does nothing.

    1. They have none..I can,t find any in all this time…Just talk..They took the common flu and turn,ed it into this thing covid…My uncle is a 68 year old Doctor…He,s piss,d with what they have done…Be safe and aware my friend..

  2. No excuse at all for not allowing essential workers paid sick leave. The Ford government in Ontario are taking their marching orders from corporate donors and are not listening to health care experts.

    1. No excuse at all for (a) PCR tests at 35 or greater Ct values; and (b) panicking over a virus that is demonstrably of little threat to anyone not in an LTC or under 60 years of age.

  3. Its unbelievable to hear how incredibly detached these politicians are from not only the apparent experts but also completely disconnected from the general public views!!

    1. @Michael Hunt
      They’re taking their marching orders from the chambers of commerce and right wing hacks

    2. What experts? These overpaid government health officials who couldn’t get a job in the private sector!

    1. Lol imagine thinking That Canadians, the same ones who voted Trudeau now suddenly have the intelligence to vote properly. LOL

  4. I am starting to get slowly ticked off with always hearing could be this or that.They back tracked because it sounded more like Marshal Law.

  5. They have no idea of what to do…listen to the language…not about cases…it’s about mobility.. who to heck do they think they are. Dr. Williams should be fired.

  6. You said that you follow the recommendations of the experts.
    Some time ago, however, two “experts”, not knowing that they were on the air, they said that they were saying what someone else wrote to them to say. Who is this other one?

  7. This government needs to be on trial. We should not be listening. The opp have been especially embarrassing

  8. Yes, they’re listening to experts — the same “experts” who have been wrong over and over in their predictions.

  9. They certainly have a way of bringing the Province together, because whether you’re liberal, conservative or somewhere in between, we can all agree that we need a new government.

  10. She said it all. The same guy they’ve been listening to for a year. If you had a leaky pipe and called a plumber and after a year all you had was a basement full of water, an empty bank account, and a pipe still leaking, would you not fire that plumber?
