Unfortunately the "Emergency Act" empowers the government to force tow-truck drivers to comply with their order to remove the trucks, or else. Not sure what the penalty is for non-compliance.

The government destroying people's lives financially is still violence.

they could have brought the army in to do it

the fact that they are press ganging civilians instead, shows how much the government fears a mutiny

Typical narcissist's response.  You and your cronies follow me around the board, name calling me, won't debate my points, just name call and then when you push the victim til they react, you point the finger.

** I bless everyone around you** 

It takes a really special type of delusion for you to go from calling other posters straight-up idiots to then pivot and cry foul about being treated poorly.  That's such stunned and bizarre reasoning there's really nothing else to say.  It tells us everything there is to know about you as a person.

We need to find and post publicly the voting record for the unprecedented invocation of the authoritarian rule in Canada. If only for the posterity. It will want to know every name.

You realize you and others on here have not mentioned the fact that thousands of lives have been saved by the health restrictions and vaccine mandates.  If it were not for those measures, thousands or perhaps tens of thousands more Canadians would have died from Covid.   Would you prefer to allow unvaccinated nurses to work with patients in hospitals or unvaccinated long term care workers to work with old people in care homes?  Those people are exceptionally vulnerable to dying from Covid.  It is a fact that thousands died before we had vaccine and it was largely brought into care homes by workers who had been infected by Covid.

This article explains a little of why vaccination has saved mass lives:

"Public Health Ontario put it in a different way in recently released data.

In the 60 days leading up to Jan. 12, including the period when Omicron took hold, the unvaccinated in the most vulnerable 80-plus group were 14 times more likely to die from COVID than their fully vaccinated counterparts, while unvaccinated 70-to-79 year olds died at 47 times the rate of vaccinated people in their 70s, the agency said."

Considering this it is hard to understand why some people would be so opposed to the mandates and health restrictions in this pandemic.  Surely they could not want to see thousands of more people die when it has been avoided.

And those are the age groups that account for eight in 10 deaths, now and before."

You replied back right away without even reading the article.  What kind of proof do you want?   The article has facts and figures.  If you can't accept facts like that, what would satisfy you?

your facts don't say what they think you say

like when you tried to pretend that higher levels of hospitalizations for the unvaccinated

was proof vaccines reduced transmission of the virus

you don't have the slightest grasp of the facts you post, and jump to ridiculous conclusions as a result

I accept the information from the data from Public Health Ontario.

Do you accept this information from Public Health Ontario?

none of that says that government restrictions saved thousands of lives

which was your claim and has literally nothing to do with the stat you posted

no one was arguing that vaccination doesn't reduce hospitalizations or deaths

again, you clearly don't understand the data

and are doing a terrible job of pretending that you do

It is a matter of simple logic or extrapolation.  If the unvaccinated in the 80 plus age group died at 14 times the rate of vaccinated people in that age group   and unvaccinated in the 70 to 79 age group died at 47 times the rate of vaccinated people in the 70 to 79 age group,  I think it proves that the vaccine is saving thousands of lives.

"Without those shots and immunity gained from past infection, in fact, this current stage of the pandemic would have been far more lethal, notes one expert.

“No one wants to imagine what the scenario would have looked like if Omicron was at the beginning of the pandemic, just ripping through the population,” said Dr. Zain Chagla, an infectious-disease professor at McMaster University. “We probably would have seen mass deaths, we probably would have seen long-term care facilities get destroyed.”

I will go with what Public Health Ontario and people like Dr. Zain Chagla, an infectious disease doctor at McMaster University say.

no it doesn't

you overestimate the amount of people dying

to get to saved thousands of lives

also your claim was that the restrictions and mandates saved lives

now you claim it's the vaccines

that's moving the goalposts

Nonsense. Not moving any goalposts.   The simple fact is vaccine mandates caused a large increase in the number of people getting vaccinated.  Vaccination has proven to save many lives.    It's simple logic.  Mandates increased the number of vaccinated people and more vaccinated people means more lives are saved.

how much of an increase?

you don't know

you just speculate

prove the mandates made enough vulnerable people who didn't get vaccinated get vaccinated

and that they didn't get vaccinated for other reasons

enough to save thousands of lives

With the vaccine, the mandates, and health measures Canada has done a far better job than the UK and the U.S.  Both of those places have had a far greater number of deaths per capita than Canada.  

which had nothing to do with mandates or restrictions

and everything to do with population density

giving the government credit for that is asinine

You are being ridiculous.  The mandates required people in different jobs like health care to get vaccinated and the great majority did get vaccinated.  This is common knowledge.  But you can do a search on these topics yourself.  Don't expect me to do everything for you.  You just want to argue about every little thing.  Obviously just being a stubborn denier.

The simple fact is far more people per million population in the U.S. died from Covid than in Canada.  Nobody disputes that.  Google it.

Why wouldn't you mention Finland, Norway, and even Sweden that never had draconian restrictions, lockdowns and mandates? Because these are the facts and they directly contradict the story that restrictions are necessary. No. They aren't necessary and not justified by the evidence. They are arbitrary and unreasonable. Honest, open and voluntary approach with high quality, effective, efficient and agile healthcare system would and have achieved better results.

The restrictions aren't saving anybody; only covering bureaucratic ar..es incapable of competent and effective management. Yes facts show that. And the facts are sufficient for this conclusion.

the vast majority got vaccinated before the mandates

so the extra amount who were forced by mandates was a drop in the bucket, not a giant life saver

you are comparing apples to ranges

Google the death rates in different states in America 

many of the states with the most restrictions and mandates had the highest death rates

if the restrictions and mandates have such a huge impact on death rates

then how is that possible that states with far less restrictions did a better job with covid?

The right wing in the U.S. in many states are much more distrustful of government and many refused to get vaccinated.  They also oppose health measures much more than people in Canada.  Their vaccinations rates are significantly lower than Canada for second does and booster shots.  They also oppose masks and social distancing.  These factors is what caused their death rates to be much higher.
