    they all need to GOOOOOOOOOOOO- there is NO COMPETENCE

    • The Feds already offer paid sick leave

      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.

      @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!

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

  3. These politicians should be careful what they say and do.

    “Experts”. Okay name the experts and the methods they used relative to past viruses/cases.

    Way overstepped your authority you gotta go

  6. Virtual parliament for a virtual democracy.

    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.

      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.

  8. 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!!

  9. None of these politicians are keeping their jobs come voting time. We will remember these murderers

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

    I have zero trust in this government

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

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

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

  16. Their day will come. They cant keep this going forever. They will have their day.

  17. You should have a panel of 10 medical experts and 10 economists to make these shutdown decisions.

  18. 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.

    Everyone write and call these monsters 24/7 go protest outside their house

    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?
