    Great advice coming from someone who has nothing to lose. He is on the public dime so no risk to him financially. His vacation is already booked

      That reminds me of those famous words, “Let them eat cake.”

    Anyone who advocates for a lockdown should loose their income too!

  4. Why would Trudeau do that when he will take all the blame when he screws up. He would much rather allow the provinces to decide so they will take the blame. This guys not too bright 😂

    • But we need everybody on board he says. If one or two provinces don’t agree, then that’s not everybody.

  5. Lol viral evolution…
    Successful viruses have maximum spread with no death to the host

    What is he talking about they are still going through this in Australia? This virus didn’t come from the UK? What is this guy smoking??

  7. Great advice form some dame jerk who still gets a pay check no matter what and won’t blame the government who is at fault for this COVID.

  8. Is this the same Attaran that made racial comments, targeted French speaking Canadians, elitism, and advised the government of Canada not support Alberta because he claimed that they mismanaged it?

    It’s too late. The time for this was last January right after the military intelligence briefing attended by the Ministers of Health and Defence. The ineptitude of the feral* government knows no limits. The virus will be here for another 18 to 24 months with pop ups forevermore. The unprecedented information that could have saved lives, was sent to almost all provincial health authorities, Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada. What did they do with it? Nothing therefore they are guilty of gross negligence.

  10. Ya’ll have lost your mind. Keep overreaching. Keep looking panicked on camera. We see.

  11. The last time the powers were used was when Pierre trudeau was in power. Why am I not surprised?

  12. Do your research and you will find that every winter there is a spike in the overall number of deaths from all causes.

  13. What craziness , just lock everyone up for ever.

  14. Why would you let a lunatic like this voice an opinion???????

  15. More extreme lockdowns for a 99.7 percent recovery rate, that’s not science. This guys a professor not a doctor, those who can’t do teach.

  16. The virus didnt destroy the economy the government response did.

    Lockdowns don’t work. That has already been proven. Even the WHO says not to do it.

  18. Quebec health minister…
    “There’s no data behind curfews. No flu in Quebec.”
    Wow…Covid eradicated the flu too

  19. Sad news Canada Justin Trudeau is still PM
