Gonna put together a little thread here from @fordnation @celliottability announcements today 11/20/2020 which leads to lockdown in Toronto and Peel. Mainly from the Q&A, so much that needs addressing. Also lockdowns do not work.
“I don’t like using ‘bring down the hammer’, but people HAVE to abide by the regulations”. - @fordnation
This is communist and government control. Canada is not a communist (or I thought) country.
Social gatherings are the proponent of spread/transmission as the gov’t states. But we will close small businesses cause that will do the trick. I do not see this relationship or correlation at all.
Children can go to school (20+ kids, not spaced out, in close contact, etc, etc.) but children cannot have social gatherings with friends or see their friends. Are we creating one day to be well rounded adults or robots? Seems more like robots to me.
“14-19 y/o’s have highest rate (of test positivity) as of recent” - Dr. Williams Chief Medical Officer of Ontario. Where are these 14-19’s? In schools. But we need to shutdown small businesses and go into lockdown? Yes keep schools open but find ways to do things safer!
Hey Happy Birthday! @fordnation
@brianlilley asks for TRANSPARENCY - age, comorbidities, etc. of COVID pts. Ford says “I agree...we will get the numbers to you” How long will this take? I estimate never.
“Lowest cases out of the whole country...this is nothing to brag about” - @fordnation as he repeats this 3 times. Have a day @fordnation give yourself a pat on the back! Well done sir! Hey - if no one congratulates you, might as well congratulate yourself right? 🤷🏻‍♂️
This is SHOCKING! 🤯
@fordnation wife Karla - collects, cuts out, and saves @brianlilley articles. “Everything Brian says there is always truth” - Ford. Brian has been the BIGGEST critic of what the Ford gov’t has been doing since March.
I don’t think (correct me if I am wrong) @brianlilley has EVER written about agreeing with @fordnation But Karla does collect what Brian writes because it is the truth. Speaks wonders for how Ford’s wife/family feels he is handling the pan(case)demic. Brian keep being you.
“Asking people in high colour areas not to go to lower colour areas”. - Dr. Williams.

Charter of Rights & Freedoms Sect. 6(2) “right to move”. Again this is evidence of gov’t control against your rights as a Canadian Citizen.
Asking to buy local/support small business but closing local shops and leaving them to curbside/pickup, BUT Walmart, Costco, Canadian Tire, etc. can all be open with limited capacity.

This is support BIG BOX and create bankruptcy to small businesses.
“Malls to create outdoor location for people to pickup purchases” - @celliottability
So malls can put up tents/heaters just like restaurants and bring the inside to outside. How does this make any sense?
“Tough times don’t last but tough people do” - @fordnation

How many people are unfortunately gonna die at the hands of Ont. Gov’t lockdowns because of alcohol abuse, drug addictions, suicide, domestic violence, missed health diagnosis, etc. ? Just like the first lockdown.
I find it very ironic how none of the people that deliver these press conferences wear masks while indoors, in close proximity, using the same podium, walking pas one another, etc. Care to comment @fordnation @celliottability oh and stop nonsense lockdowns!
