    News flash! My holidays will be done how I want them to be done, neither you or the government has any say in it.

    Covid is apparently racist!!! And comes out after 11pm. Jokes!!

    • @Christopher I think that Santa and Covid are sharing our info.

    • The approach is reactive, which is why cases keep climbing. Just encourage masks as a central measure (they work in asia and are harmless) already to stop this in its tracks please. Also please get a spokesperson who can communicate clearly.

    • they literally explained it in the video are you stupid?

      @mikei no i am actually quite intelligent unlike you. You are a covidiot but dont worry…i will🙏 for you

    • @mikei You’re not noticing that the OP isn’t serious, kinda should be questioning your own intelligence methinks.

  4. Im praying for a better one. The Last 2 have been Terrible.

  5. We should be more concerned with the isolation “camps”and bill 218. Without a resounding NO from the powers that shouldnt be, we all need to be extremely worried.

  6. Dont tell me how my christmas is gna be

  7. More bs coming from our government, keep it up guys! Deeply hope you guys all pay for your crimes soon!

  8. Christmas will be the same at my house.

  9. why stop with christmas
    next Easter will be different
    Next Canada Day will be different
    Christmas for the next 50 years will be different

  10. I feel that almost everyone doesn’t care anymore.

  11. LMAO!! He’s so frustrated talking to her. Can’t get a straight answer even after he literally begs her for one!

  12. The insanity continues.

    If what she is saying is fact, that our current system can not adequately balance its present health care needs. Why are we increasing immigration numbers to an already failing system. Shouldn’t they be finding a balanced module that will control and successfully resolve the present issues, before adding more fuel to the fire.

    How about the trajedies of the mental health issues, addiction, job losses, bankruptsies, and deaths caused by the lockdown and other fear policies?

    • If snowflakes suffering from these things simply respected social distancing and wearing masks, we wouldn’t be in the situation we are in today… maybe stick to your crystals, essential oils and religious nonsense and leave medicine to the experts?

      @Liu Kang The lockdown, social distancing, and mask wearing is the cause of these things.

    • @Liu Kang So you think if everyone followed the rules the virus would be gone? And I don’t know if you went to medical school, but if you did, please tell me which year they cover job losses and bankruptcies caused by economic lockdowns. Oh, and which year they cover pieces of cotton over your face as a way to eradicate viruses.

      Totally agree

    • Consciousness Transformation | November 5, 2020 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      @Liu Kang Sure, but don’t leave public policy to medical experts, other wise you get a situation like we have.

    I watch this news like I look at a counterfeit dollar bill. They both help me realize what a fake is like

  16. No government is going to tell me Christmas is off this year

  17. Just more propaganda about a supposed virus that hasn’t fulfilled koch’s postulates for viruses.

  18. I’d still rather be in my own shoes than hers or Castros. They’re fate is far worse than ours.

  19. She’s right. Christmas will be different this year I’m having my kitchen redone. How did Dr. Tam know?

  20. If masks work, open everything up and just wear masks.
