Ontario to enter four-week, provincewide shutdown: Watch Ford's full update 1


Ontario will go into a four-week, provincewide shutdown on Saturday as the government pulls its “emergency brake” in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 variants.

Premier Doug Ford announced on Thursday afternoon that the shutdown will begin on April 3. As a result, in-person dining will be shuttered yet again and further gathering restrictions will go into effect across Ontario

    The true definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    • SO TRUE, lockdowns DON’T WORK. PERIOD.

    • @TrEverEvoy i though that was misaytributed to him. I don’t believe he said that

      @Eyad nice 2021 dictionary

    • @Jam Jam Think you’re right. He also didn’t say “When you sit with a nice girl for two hours you think it’s only a minute, but when you sit on a hot stove for a minute you think it’s two hours. That’s relativity.” And I always really liked that one

    remember when ontario had small businessess

  11. I remember when they “ended” the last lockdown I was saying. “Perfect, just in time to enact another harsher lockdown for Easter.”

  12. This is going to go on for ever

      next will be climate lockdowns…..

    • The hell it is! get out and do your thing. No police are enforcing this, just like last time. Some opportunistic bullies may try to overstep, just put them in their place. We need to end this and we do it by not playing along.

      @Ron R We need to enforce the lockdown! I agree! Start up the heavy fines for non maskers. Shut down any store that doesn’t comply, no warnings! Time to get serious and get this virus done with!

    • Linda Carmichael | April 1, 2021 at 9:33 PM | Reply

      True they have power like never before and they don’t want to give it up ever😫

    • @Kelly Careless You guys have been locking down forever, what’s gonna change this time?

    This is why they always do lockdown drills in highschool

    Conveniently for easter weekend!!!! Spend spend spend!!!! The only thing waving is my 3rd finger… just a home honestly!

  15. If only this ended with, April Fool’s.

  16. Next month

    “Today I will have to make once again, another tough decision. We will go into a province wide lock down…. the fourth wave is here”

    In 2026 “Due to the 18th wave, we must have a four week lockdown.”

    LOL I love how he pretends to be so sincere, how long do we all put up with this before we start fighting back?

  19. Blinding Cloud | April 1, 2021 at 7:15 PM | Reply

    “We just need two weeks to beat the curve.” A year and 3 months later …

  20. Missing your loved ones for Easter? Just have your family get-together at Wal-Mart, a public school, a Golf Course, at a Church, or at a construction site. All perfectly okay apparently.
