    1. That DEVILla woman needs to be given no more than $2000 per month until they reopen businesses completely.

  1. I have to wait until Saturday to find out if I’m laidoff , cause of the 25 percent capacity

    1. @John Smith im covered and looking , can’t work with these dumb restrictions and EI ain’t forever either , I must adapt to the times.

    2. @Shawn Dowdall yeah its all going into investment. and i will pay taxes as they come. i deduct tons of extra charges from my pay that the government owes me money at tax time.

    3. @Phantom Warrior So you are basically stealing from future generations to line your own pockets… Pretty much sums up this whole debacle right here!

    4. @T. E. Music who is stealing. the ei my wife collects is because she worked a job and was then laid off. similarly i only collect ei when i get laid off. no one is stealing here. i don’t owe the next generation anything just like previous generation don’t owe me nothing.

  2. One day the universe will shut down itself to stop the spread of the virus…if you know what i mean.

  3. “Anyone can test positive for practically anything with a PCR test, if you run it long enough… with PCR if you do it well, you can find almost anything in anybody… it doesn’t tell you that you’re sick.” –Dr. Kary Mullis (The doctor who invented PCR test and got Nobel Prize for it.)

    1. How does it work exactly? Does everyone have at least one particle of every virus/disease/bacteria in them and the PCR detects it eventually?

  4. Doctor’s told Ford he was opening up to soon and would put Ontario into a 3rd wave and we all know Ford knows more than these doctors and scientists and here we go with a new wave. Maybe its time for Ford to go

  5. It would be interesting to know how those new patients in ICUs got infected (e.g. through international travel, schools, gyms, stores, restaurants, etc). I have seen playgrounds in public parks packed with children and parents..

  6. These politicians have not experienced lockdown. They are still paid. How about a wage freeze?

  7. What happened to the death counts? They provided them all through this “pandemic” in the beginning.
