      He is actually very brave to speak out when he works for this godforsaken province! Don’t be so rude!

    • @MasterofPlay7 being forced at home* while they worry about when they’ll be kicked out of their house.

  4. “Toronto doctor (one doctor) urge increased restrictions” ….and thousands of other doctors and health professionals say restrictions are useless.

    Go ask for a tour of the covid wards, one health official in Ontario said to just ask her,

    We have decades of research on metabolic disease. These doctors know very well that these actions will lead to a greater reduction in years lived for Canadian citizens.

  7. And they fired Baber for pointing out the dangers of lockdown restrictions. Idgaf what your cherry picked doctor says hes probably happy to say whatever lets him keep his job.

      Let me know I have Covid test

    • @Jenn L That sounds really difficult. It sounds like you feel stuck

    • I would like encourage everyone who’s willing to help organise a Common Law Grand Jury. It time for Justice and time to send these Political Parasites and Public Health Bureaucrats to Prison. It is time for Investigations and full Accountability.

    • @Alison Fraser you don’t need outside contact if you know how to survive in the woods. All the food you need is already out there just waiting to be killed or picked to eat.

      @Jenn L I am so so sorry that you are having such a difficult time. Stay strong, and if you ever ever need to talk or vent…please know that can message me. We all need to stick together and help each other❤️

    I would Go to work anyways even though there it was an outbreak because I have to take care of my family

    This just breaks my heart.

    The Great Barrington Declaration… learn what the world doctors think!

  12. Ofcourse, and once those restrictions are up, you’ll come out with the same exact news segment as this one.

  13. imagine if they reported on every party/gathering that DIDN’T spread covid as well?

  14. Herman Teunissen | April 3, 2021 at 7:50 PM | Reply

    When will they finally pull out the IVM protocol and everything will be fine!

  15. 3000 cases a day… There is no way we are testing around 10,000+ a day every day for the past year!

  16. For every ICU doctor they bring on these news programs they should bring an economist, a psychiatrist, and an addiction specialist.

    • Alison Fraser | April 3, 2021 at 8:35 PM | Reply

      They have economists of staff. The psychiatrists and addiction workers are too backed up. It is nice if doctors to visit. They are swamped but they want to get the message out to numskulls who don’t get it.

  17. Real easy to say all these things when you have a guaranteed paycheque!

  18. Onion Potato | April 3, 2021 at 10:04 PM | Reply

    One result of the last year is that I don’t trust the news anymore.

  19. Flu cases always go down in April so I’m sure they will take the credit with the lockdown.

    Just saw another local restaurant in my area send out notifications they are closing permanently…. thanks politicians and doctors…. let these doctors work for free and see how quick they change there tune…. maybe just protect the elderly, protect those with cancer or other conditions, build field hospitals to keep covid patients, and let everyone else get back to work and trying to survive and provide for their family
