    Still no Hydrochloroquine Azithromycin
    Still no antibody testing
    Still allowing illegal immigrant crossings
    Still not encouraging masks for all

    Google sharing private location data with the government to track our movements

    What is the priority of this government?

    Less than 1% has been tested for covid?

    • They have only started testing others. The past two months they have only been testing anyone who traveled international. These numbers are way higher.

    • And the provinces are leading the way on this not this bunch in Ottawa

    Guess the risk to canadians isn’t low, like they said. Should they not have been prepared, since this started in china months ago?

    • Brandon Dewar Just remember what they originally said there’s nothing burger here! Lying useless Trudeau

      @Haw Boy the whole world was saying that it was not a big thing cant just blame one person

      @Vicky Helgren some said that…..not all…..many in the Canadian public were very concerned with the situation and pleaded for the closing of Roxam Rd crossing from NY state as well as an immediate restriction on incoming international flights especially those from Wuhan province…..right to this minute there still exists inadequate testing of international arrivals at the 4 designated international airports…..Justin Trudeau has proven to be incompetent at the best of times…..and most definately the wrong person to have in charge right now

  4. Who listens to this phoney lying no mind ??

  5. Please resign ,much appreciated.

    Taiwan, China’s neighbour, has a total death count of 2, with 24 million healthy citizens, businesses and schools in full operation… why ?…Because in February, Taiwan closed their borders, stopped ALL flights, and did intensive testing….That’s called leadership, Justin.

  7. Why does she keep trying to kill Canadsins

    Ha! Look at the number of thumbs down!!! Could it be everyone knows you’re incompetent and lying!!!

  10. Tam’s been shopping again for another jacket….. should have been reading the paper she authored in 2006. Best advice from her “cough in your elbow”. That from our “chief medical officer” …..

    I agree, the more distant I am from the lying politicians and bureaucrats in Ottawa, the better I feel.

    You have misinformed Canada from the beginning. Still doing it.

    I’m offended… 🙌🏻

  14. I have just heard that 2 homes in Manitoba have been infected. My mother is in a nursing home in Winnipeg. The screening measures are pitiful. Four questions are asked mainly dealing with travel and if you have a temperature. Remember that a lot of workers in these homes are older. They may be taking advil, tylenol, etc just to go to work because of the physical demands the job requires so taking someone’s temperature is not adequate. These homes were closed March 16th to family so the only person that can bring the virus in will be a worker (unknowingly). The residents in these homes have no “Bubble” so to speak and are in physical contact with hcw’s on a daily basis for washing,eating and cleaning. To protect our MOST VUNERABLE what is Manitoba Health doing? I know that of March 30th no one was wearing a mask and the workers were under the belief or were told they were not required. All workers coming in contact with a resident Must wear a mask. All workers should be tested on a daily basis to ensure they are not infected. Everything should be impeccably cleaned. Bleach everything. Please protect our most vunerable. I want to see my mother again.
    Manitoba has now shut off all comments on their U Tube Channel – Way to go!

    Didn’t she insinuate Trump was a racist because he stopped flights from China way back in January.

  16. She sounds like “It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again”.

    Fun fact: this doctor has probably eaten dogs before.

  18. Tam told Canadians not to bother protecting ourselves against the virus. Because, reasons.

  19. She must be fired.

  20. Going to start off by saying I was also from Hong Kong, and currently residing in Canada. So I have nothing against Dr Tam’s ethnicity or place of origin. With that said, I just want to express that she should be fired ASAP. She’s obviously doing a terrible job, and she’s been feeding Canadians with bad advices and misinformation.

    We need to remove her immediately and find a new Chief Public Health Officer who is competent enough to do the job.
