  1. Protests aren't banned; the location where a protest is held is being restricted. "Free speech" isn't being restricted; they can protest elsewhere that is not outside a hospital and has no chance of obstructing someone else's right to access medical care without hindrance. It will continue to not make sense to you as long as you pretend "protests are being banned", and insisting that anyone has the right to say anything they want, anywhere they want, any time they want. Perhaps you should go to an airport and talk about bombing planes as you go through security; when you are detained, you can bleat about how your right to 'free speech' is being attacked.

  2. I was Military , had every shot known to man and then some, I had no say, get the shot or get out of the military. so i don't have anything against the shot per say what i don't agree with is not having the choice, with out so many restrictions. i have been force to take experimental drugs (mefloquine) before and it had consequences for many people. It was also approved by our health system and deemed safe. Plus the government does not have a good track record when making decisions within this pandemic...and neither did our health services. so there is room there for lots of doubt. Our premier just announce NO thanks giving with friends or family outside your bubble, so starting friday everything is shut down, but reopened on Monday, they must think we are stupid or something, most people will celebrate next weekend...so once again a policy not well thought out.

  3. Over the weekend, Fisman also alleged on Twitter that the table was sitting on “important modelling work that projects a grim fall.” https://www.google.ca/amp/s/toronto.citynews.ca/2021/08/23/doctor-quits-ontario-science-advisory-group-alleges-political-influence/amp/

  4. It may have been politics for the US but Canada was abiding by a treaty and it cost us a lot to follow the law.

  5. I did some research as well, to see if I could independently substantiate your claim that "many scientists and doctors" are concerned. I found a few, but they didn't seem all that credible to me. Is Dolores Cahill one of your sources? Or, Michael Yeardon? Or maybe it was from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons? Anyway, here's one for you: "Late last year, a semi-retired British scientist co-authored a petition to Europe’s medicines regulator. The petitioners made a bold demand: Halt COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials. Even bolder was their argument for doing so: They speculated, without providing evidence, that the vaccines could cause infertility in women. Social media quickly spread exaggerated claims that COVID-19 jabs cause female infertility." I won't quote this one regarding long term effects extensively, but the highlights: Vaccine hesitancy is being fueled by a coordinated disinformation campaign specific to this pandemic; Numerous spurious and scientifically illiterate arguments are used; While concern about long-term effects is reasonable, they are used by the most ardent, bad-faith antagonists and at their core, are simply an objection that we cannot know for certain what the future holds; Vaccines do not remove or significantly attenuate biological functions in your body; In contrast to many other drugs taken for extended periods of time, a vaccine is typically a single intervention; We know exactly which substances are present in the vaccine formulations, and we possess a detailed and thorough understanding of their properties and safety profiles; The risk of severe immunization-related complications declines to virtually nothing after about three months; The mountains of data we have available to us now show that COVID-19 vaccine-related complications are exceedingly rare, and occurring within 60 days of the vaccination; And a direct quote: "To put vaccine risk in perspective, consider the most frequent serious adverse event in any demographic: the rate of myocarditis in younger males. According to available evidence, if Fenway park were filled to capacity with some 37,000 fully vaccinated men aged 18 to 24, just two might experience transient myocarditis. By contrast, if all 37,000 of these men were unvaccinated and infected with the delta variant, many more would experience a diverse array of clinical outcomes, including extended periods in hospital, virus-induced myocardial injury, and diverse post-acute health complications described as “long COVID.” In other words, the sum of the diverse risks associated with vaccination are dwarfed by the diverse and incompletely understood risks posed by the novel coronavirus." Do you know where much of the information for the vaccine hesitant; anti-lockdown; anti-mask folk originates? From 12 social media influencers. How much of your "well-crafted, researched" beliefs came from one or more of these 12 social media influencers?

  6. Health care workers and patients don't get obstructed or hassled. Protest at legislatures and city halls where policy is made. Hospital protesters are making far more enemies than friends.

  7. Canada followed the rules by following the extradition process. Once the US made the plea deal, no extradition necessary.
