  • Lockdowns do not work! We have seen this in Toronto and Peel! Numbers are higher because people are in a concentrated area, work in large scale processing plants and factories. Live in multi-family homes. You can’t continue to confine people. Get outside! Let people move around and deal with the problem areas which are nursing homes, long term care homes and hospitals. Put the resources there. Vaccinate there first. control the environment around those facilities with extra resources and staffing. You will lock everything down again and sure as anything, business will be gone. We are seeing it now! The medical officer for Ontario seems so out of touch that the government follows his every word. Obviously his thinking and several of his colleagues is not working.
