  1. Everyone on the news lately is just getting teary eyed

  2. You can say this in Manitoba but not in Ontario because some adults(made of smoothies) will cry and get hurt.

  3. Asked my Doctor hey Doc when will this Pandemic be over he said I dont know I’m not a politician

    “we’re all in this together”…so then suspend your salary….what a crook

    • Yeah. Politicians are hypocrites. He tells everyone to stay apart and almost every one of them that tells you to do that, goes and spends a nice Christmas with their families because they don’t have to follow the guidelines they put out. Rules for thee not for me.

    • @Myles Rimmer why are you so blatantly ignorant? Why can’t you understand the very basics of this disease ? What is missing in your brain 🧠
      Is it just knowledge ? Or is there
      Some sort of actual thinking process that has gotten muddled along the way?

      @shizuokaBLUES you realize they can make up all the rules they want, but if they themselves keep getting caught breaking them then no one is going to listen. Seems the rich are immune to covid or they at least act like it. They get richer while everyone gets poorer, they fucked up they had their chance when everyone was warning them back Feb. But they rather make fun of everyone.

  9. Look at his body language, look at his eyes: he is NOT an honest person! Why did not you try to cry better???

    We aren’t in this together.
    The banks announced profits while society suffers and does without.

    • Banks were like this before Covid too. So you should take all of your money out of the bank account you have then and stop using any banks. Stop supporting them. How about you do something about it yourself instead of whining??

    • @Nathan dude check yourself, you need banking information for a JOB.

      @Nathan what colour is the sky in your world?

      If they wanted to be serious about the Covid then the banks should have been the first to suspend operations.

    • So what are you doing that benefits society, besides being a keyboard warrior living in your Mother’s basement?

    Its real mild

  12. Time to say goodbye to the poli-ticks. Blood suckers!

  13. This clown throws a temper tantrum every time he’s in front of a camera. I like my leaders to be a little less emotional.

  14. I’m just here just for the comments

    Coming from a guy who cut Healthcare?

  16. The problem is we aren’t all in this together

      Is diversity to blame

    • @The Real Regan Grimey no just government hence the clampdown.

    • @The Real Regan Grimey diversitiy can cause division if you overextend its meaning it is causes fractures within communities look at the LGBTQ “community” they have so many ways to define themselves as an outcast that some of the ones who make it up dont believe others within it

  17. some days ago the message was that if you break the laws you will be paraded on tv, shamefully so. so thank you for being on tv.

    I don’t think anyone denies it’s real. It’s just not as deadly as the government claims. Being crazy authoritarian is not right either. I don’t care what you THINK is right. Doesn’t make it right.

      It’s not as deadly AS THE WHOLE REST OF THE WORLD says it is? You’re one of the idiots he’s talking about.

      @Papwithanhatchet I guess your fine with the government locking everyone down and extracting money to the billionaires while Canadian businesses stay shuddered. You back politicians that make hundreds of thousands a year and didn’t loose a cent during this entire thing while we literally move all the stimulus money to the big box stores or online stores.

      Did you know that 23% of current wealth has been transferred to the rich?

      This is what you are supporting while they strip your rights in front of you and you applaud it.

  19. Haha ..I will be the first with is family ;/.
