  1. . “Lockdown was never part of our planned pandemic response nor is it supported by strong science"
    Dr. Richard Schabas, A former provincial top doctor has sent a letter to Ontario Premier Doug Ford siding with Roman Baber, the MPP who broke rank with his own government to call for an end to lockdowns.
    “MPP Baber made five key points (in his open letter) and I believe he was correct on all five items,” writes Dr. Richard Schabas, who served as Ontario’s chief medical officer of health from 1987 to 1997. He notes that Baber “deserves great credit” for opening up the discussion on lockdowns. “Lockdown was never part of our planned pandemic response nor is it supported by strong science,” adds Schabas, who notes he helped train current top doc David Williams. “Two recent studies on the effectiveness of lockdown show that it has, at most, a small COVID mortality benefit compared to more moderate measures. Both studies warned about the excessive cost of lockdowns.”
    Schabas also served as chief of staff at York Central Hospital during the 2003 SARS crisis. Last week, Baber was booted out of the Progressive Conservative caucus by Ford for releasing an open letter calling on the government to change course in its response to the pandemic.

    “COVID is real, but the fear of COVID is exaggerated. While every death is tragic, after 10 months we learned that COVIDis not nearly as deadly as first thought,” Baber’s letter stated. Baber called for the government to pivot towards better protecting long-term care facilities and increasing hospital capacity.

    Ford accused Baber of “spreading misinformation” over the letter, which included statistics about death rates and hospital ICU capacity. The government sent out its own fact sheet countering some of Baber’s claims, to which Baber in turn offered a response. “Lockdown is an affront to social justice because its burdens fall disproportionately on the young, the working poor and visible minorities,” observes Schabas in his letter. “We will be paying for lockdown in lives and dollars for decades to come.
    “Our well-intentioned but misguided efforts to control COVID are only compounding the tragedy. We need to change course. No one has all the answers but the first step is to start asking the right questions.

  2. The only way to stop this i see, is people by the tens of thousands in a coordinated fashion have to not go to work. Use a sick day. Or a vacation day or part day. If big businesses can't open then they will have to change tactics

  3. Here's an actual plan. Build "temporary" hospital beds in arenas to house and isolate those that are sick and in need of medical attention. This would prevent overcrowding of our actual hospitals.
    Let the public live freely. Those that want to stay home can stay home. Wear masks if it makes you feel safer(masks are pointless). DON'T TAKE AWAY MY FREEDOMS BECAUSE OF YOUR FEARS.
    I'm not living my life in fear and terror forever.

  4. Imagine forcing everyone into stores, the same big box stores because small business has been shut down, all at the same time before a curfew starts. How can ANYONE think a curfew would stop the spread of any virus is beyond me.

  5. THIS IS TO SHUT DOWN ALL OUR NATIONS ECONOMY'S AND PHASE US INTO THIS NEW WORLD ORDER GIG THEY GOING ON BHIND ALL THIS MADNESS. THE POLICE ARE GONNA START GETTING PUNCHED OUT AND LEFT.

  6. Man i tell ya these people need to be dragged out by their hair and thrown out on their asses periode, this is getting ridiculous, 2000 cases in Ontario, NOT EVEN A FIFTH OF THE POPULATION AND PROBABLY ALL LIES.

  7. Screw Doug Ford in his whole cabinet, this is all about control and nothing to do with this virus. He's going to ruin millions and millions of people's lives because of what he's doing, far worse than this virus will ever do
