  1. You're just making excuses for bad behavior. The city of New York declared an emergency on March 7th, and restricted public gatherings on March 12th. At the same time members of the municipal government were downplaying the virus, and encouraging people to go out to public gatherings. Make up your mind on whether politicians should've acted sooner or not. You can't pick and choose with your bull crap excuses.

  2. Trudeau suggested that Canada was not on the same trajectory as the US because it had acted sooner. But the fact of the matter is – on several issues, Canada trailed behind the US by several days or even weeks. https://edmontonjournal.com/news/national/the-road-to-canadas-covid-19-outbreak-timeline-of-federal-government-failure-at-border-to-slow-the-virus/ When asked if he now regrets not tightening travel screening earlier in the pandemic: Trudeau replied: “I think there is going to be lots of analysis after the fact about what happened when, what could have happened a fe

  3. There is no law for the above...and you project fabricated fears on Fox...you engage in wishful thinking where you control what the world must believe...lead by example...stop writing such nonsense...

  4. It began spreading long before March 10th. The NBA and NHL postponed their season on March 12th. Stop making excuses for bad behaviour. It’s unbecoming. Regardless, the real lawsuit should be filed against China for gross negligence.

  5. Part of why it’s more deadly is because it’s more contagious. I’ve posted that it’s more contagious in other threads. I’m sorry you didn’t see them.

  6. Can you imagine the crying if Canada had stockpiled masks/ventilators/scrubs/etc a few years ago? The same people currently complaining that "we should have been prepared" would have screamed about wasting tax dollars on "non-essentials."

  7. Which is what makes it worse. Yes misinformation has played a role throughout history since the dawn of man. But today it is so huge. So fast. The misinformation goes around the world in seconds and reaches way more people. The whole lot of you are now under its spell. That's why you're mesmerized chicken shit go wash your hands, it's been more than 5 minutes. And remember to wipe everything down again and again, and... again

  8. You see, it's not about racism. It's about taking precautions toward countries who happen to have a pandemic. If you make the association between defending borders, keeping social distance and racism, I'm sorry, but you're far more dangerous than the basic far right zealot in his mom basement browsing hentai in between two videos of Alex Jones.

  9. Yep. Nobody's been more negligent than China. Look it up. Stop making excuses for bad behavior, and stop running defence for a communist dicatorship. You're carrying water for them.

  10. No, you made excuses for the mayor of New York, and some of his cabinet members. Apparently some dangerous rhetoric you're fine with, depending who it comes from. That's pathetic.

  11. Starting to see more and more articles now about the eficacy of masks, but I don't expect the Trudeau government to change its tune until some outside authority, like the WHO or CDC formally pronounces on it. The message to Canadians over the last few weeks has been clear: Don’t buy face masks. Personal protective equipment is in short supply. Priority must go to frontline health workers, our best line of defense against the virus — and the most vulnerable to catching COVID-19. Most people are unlikely to wear a face mask correctly anyway. And masks only protect others, not the weare

  12. I have no difficulty with any of this. But then I'm semi-old. I grew up in a pre-Liberal Canada, before Trudeau senior opened the floodgates to immigrants and then set about deliberately destroying our traditions and institutions because they were too closely related to Britain and he wanted to assuage Quebec. The 'multiculturalism' bullshit helped with that because it was only ever applied in English Canada, never in Quebec. We were told that we couldn't do this or say that and that this and that had to be changed so as to not offend newcomers. And the more newcomers we had which had no part

  13. That is our fault, and the fault of a supine media who don't challenge politicians who do this. How often do you hear a reporter listen out some long, weaselly answer and then come back with "But you didn't answer the question", and then repeat it. I've seen it done, but only rarely and never against a Liberal minister or PM. The only time the media seems to get their back up and challenge a politician is when the politician is a conservative.

  14. Progressives believe they can run an economy on other people's money...until that runs out. Then the true authoritarian nature comes out in them. Wouldn't change anything....we already have plenty of lobbying video to see.

  15. I like that you put me on the same level as the mayor of the largest city in North America. I’m flattered!

  16. I’m guessing a lot of people might be scared. Including the bumbling buffoon New York has for a mayor. No wonder that city is having such a difficult time. Just like the common cold or flu!

  17. True. There’s a U.K. study that suggests 95% of all of this could have been prevented if China had of acted properly earlier.

  18. All sounds good in theory till the time you have to define what Canada is, who is Canadian, what our mutual goal is and so on. I have a very basic problem. I want to buy myself a good pair of winter waterproof hunting (muck) boots made in Canada for $50-$100 but guess what? They want to sell me a pair made in China for $200. Can you solve my problem?

  19. That's not how I remember it. Progressives wanted more fair trade that treated people in countries we traded with like human beings and conservatives dismissed that as virtue signalling. Conservatives will spread their legs as happily as bend someone over.

  20. What is the "economy" anyways? Just exploiting and destroying the environment to increase our numbers beyond the 8 billion mark at the expense of all other species? F* the economy!

  21. No that is an assumption not based on objective fact. Many people could have been infected, recovered and never spread anything. We still need to properly investigate. You assume anyone with a virus spreads it to everyone. Common sense alone would tell you not all of us get the flu when others have it. The key is properly containing people in their contagious stage and engaging in proper daily protocols. In fact you engage in the very cognitive process people engage in and engaged in with aids, leprosy, the bubonic plague, tuberculosis. How about you just read the protocols when de

  22. I apologize, if you dislike where the truth/the facts come from. And as far as me not posting here? Too late for that. Especially, if it caused you to decide that now truths/facts should not be acknowledged ---whenever we don't like where the truth/the facts came from. And perhaps .......... Don't reply to my posts? That might make things a little easier for you here in a public forum. And if you disregard those Breitbart links, that is okay too, but hey you'll get the same concept of reality from the Twitter link I posted there as well ---tweets by U.S. Senator Tom Cotton.

  23. They don't use "social-distancing" anymore. It's now, "physical-distancing."
