    • Well said.

    • Dr. Tam failed big time. I knew it when I saw the advertisement where she said: You don’t need to do anything. Just carry on as your daily life with social distancing…… What a waste of government money to make useless ad? Wearing mask kicks in way too late. She should step down if she doesn’t know what to do!

  2. So did Cuomo in the USA!!!! Maybe Mr Tam needs to be investigated!!!

  3. Pathetic. It really is pathetic.

  5. no, dr tam, as the chief medical officer, “[you] failed the most vulnerable”

    We failed but we won’t resign and we need a raise.

  7. Whoa, whoa, whoa…where’d this “we failed” come from? My conscience is clean.

      Fleece & Runn I would’ve treated it like the flu, and not done anything.
      The “all cause mortality rate“, when compared with the last five years; indicates that there was NO Substantial increase in deaths at all.

      @Fleece & Run closed the borders

    • @Fleece & Run Not medicare, the virus is the reason we have restrictions and lockdowns. It is the only sensible thing to do.

      @Bob Kozalov California and NY have similar restrictions, their hospitalization and death rates from “the virus” are similar to Tex and Florida that do not have the restrictions. Tell me more about your “sensible things to do”.

  9. Where was the commemoration of all those that took their own lives, died as a result of not getting the medical attention that they needed… lost their jobs, businesses and homes, all while these clowns collected their paychecks, gave themselves raises and contravened their own travel restrictions and lockdown orders?

      Here, here! But we’re all in this together BARF!

      Yes Brian the third wave if you will, will be the long term impact of all the measures taken. All the measures that were supposed to protect the most vulnerable and apparently didn’t. Now we’ll all suffer for years…

    • @George Ferguson The measures did protect the most vulnerable and still are.

    • George Ferguson | March 15, 2021 at 6:52 PM | Reply

      @Bob Kozalov Oh i’m sorry, I thought 22K Canadians, mostly older and more vunlerable have died so far. I guess I was mistaken.

    No you failed everyone, fascists

  11. It’s not just failure, it’s a crime.

  12. Why not resign? Shame on you to make a speech like this!

  13. Steve Irving | March 14, 2021 at 6:18 PM | Reply

    Failed the vulnerable, he’ll she’s failed everyone! She is a W.H.O shill and her allegiance is to them! What a disgrace!

  14. You’ve all had a year to research what this is really about.

  15. They failed everyone except for Mcdonalds, Wal-Mart, Amazon and other billion dollar corporations.

  17. Getting rid of this virus will be a cakewalk compared to getting rid of “Dr.” Tam.

  18. Dr. Tam, you failed everyone in Canada precisely, but not W.H.O.!

  19. When are you gonna resign with all of the clowns running this country to the ground?

    “We culled the most vulnerable” Don’t be modest, witch.
