    The number is way way higher than this! Why are you lying?? We Canadians can handle the truth!

  2. Let’s just be clear; its not Covid that did this…it’s the hysterical REACTION to Covid that did it….we could have totally gone the path of Sweden, Taiwan, Singapore and others with avoiding a total economic lockdown while still flattening our curve….we did not. Every country without exception so far seems to be following a similar 8 to 12-week flattening of the curve regardless of specific approach.

  3. It is time to revive industrial production in Canada. Innovative and high value products!

    Canada, and all countries significantly financially harmed by Covid 19, should consider pursuing financial restitution from China/CCP.
    China is responsible for 3 costly viral epidemics in the last hundred years.
    At some point, China should be held responsible for the negative impact on, and harm, they cause to the health and well-being of the global community.
    Perhaps if China/CCP were held accountable, they might behave with a greater sense of responsibility and ethics.

  8. Trudeau should loose his job ,he is not worth a dime

    Hard to believe this. Canada has 15.4 million in the workforce. Only 1million jobs lost. It’s likely a lot more than that.

    There’s a big difference between the virus coming from a Wuhan Wet Market and the Wuhan Biological Safety Level 4 Lab across the Street from the Wet Market. One means China is not responsible and the other means not only is China responsible, but indiscriminate mass murderers. Everyone needs to drop the wet market crap and focus exclusively on hitting that point home. Could be very, very profitable.

    To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “The scariest words in the English language are ‘I’m from the Trudeau Liberal government, and I’m here to ‘help.'”

    China is guilty for the economic destruction of our Nation. They must pay. Not an option. They owe

  16. a million jobs lost…and 100billion debt…hmmm…looks like a recipe for communism

    that’s the whole idea in this plandemic….to crush the economy. Let’s get back to work!

  18. so let’s think about this guys:
    THE FLU kills WAY MORE than corona
    yet we are told to stop working
    go into BILLIONS in debt
    sounds like a VERY well calculated plan by a specific minority. The super rich minority.
