As we take time today to pay respect to veterans who fought and died for their country, so we can have our freedoms; we must not forget the despotic politicians that have used the covid19 pandemic as an excuse to take those freedoms away.
Lockdowns, masks, vaccine passports, vaccine mandates — which have been imposed without any scientific evidence — has turned Canada into a nation resembling Communist China.
Politicians use the phrase “to keep you safe” as an excuse to implement harsh lockdowns and take take our freedoms away — this should have never been acceptable in a Democracy.
Our political leaders should hang their ends in shame this Remembrance Day.
Lest we forget.
Doug Ford is sending the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) to parks, threatening parents with young children playing together, that the Children’s Aid Society (CAS) could be contacted if they disobey the provincial lockdown order.
Kotzma was at the Havelock Community Centre park with her daughter on Sunday, April 18 with 11 other children and eight adults when two Peterborough County Doug Ford’s OPP officers attended the park and threatened to call CAS and have to children removed from the parents custody.
“Threatening to call CAS because of neglect is little over the top,” says Tiffany Kotzma.
On Friday, April 16, the Ford government announced unconstitutional COVID-19 measures, including prohibiting all outdoor social gatherings and organized public events, except for with members of the same household or one other person from outside that household who lives alone.
Parents groups have called Doug Ford racist after it was revealed he created a program for only Black children and youth. The Ontario government is investing $6 million over the next three years to help only Black children and youth achieve their educational and career goals by creating the new Student and Family Advocates initiative in Ottawa, Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area. The Student and Family Advocates initiative is part of Ontario’s $60 million expanded Black Youth Action Plan.
“Our government is committed to helping [only] Black children and youth achieve their full potential. That’s why we are expanding programming under the Black Youth Action Plan and creating community-based initiatives like the Student and Family Advocates,” said Todd Smith, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services.
Creating and funding government program based on skin colour is racist and should be eliminated immediately. What about White, Asian and East Asian children and youth?
Doug Ford’s lockdown forced skating rinks and ski hills to close. With no recreational facilities open many children went skating on unsafe ponds and tobogganing on unsafe hills.
In Milton, two boys ventured out on a storm management pond, believing it was thick enough to play on when one of them fell through the ice — an 11-year-old boy drowned. https://www.thespec.com/news/hamilton-region/2020/12/22/death-of-milton-boy-11-hitting-family-friends-and-school-classmates-hard.html
In Niagara, a four-year-old boy tobogganing down a hill died after his sled went onto the roadway and was hit by a passing pickup truck. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2021/02/02/fatal-sled-lincoln/
More children have died as a result of Doug Ford’s unconstitutional lockdown than from COVID-19.
Gang related gun crime is a major problem in Ontario. Unfortunately Doug Ford is using police resources to go after children tobogganing — formal warnings and trespassing tickets have been issued. Under the province’s Emergency Act it limits outdoor organized public gatherings and social gatherings to five people with limited exceptions. With ski hills and other businesses deemed non-essential now forcibly shut down, the holidays in full lockdown meant citizens, especially those with young children, were trying to get out of the house as much as possible within the extensive restrictions we are now living under. https://www.blogto.com/sports_play/2021/01/toronto-busting-hundreds-skating-tobogganing/
Meanwhile gun crime is through the roof. Data from the Toronto Police Service show a total of 460 shootings with 177 people injured and 39 people dead in 2020. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/violent-2020-almost-surpasses-last-years-gun-crime-figures
The unconstitutional lockdowns imposed by tyrannical politicians across Canada is destroying the economy — 213,000 jobs were lost in January.
Statistics Canada says the economy lost 213,000 jobs in in January as employment fell to the lowest level since August last year, wiping out the gains made in the fall. The unemployment rate rose 0.6 percentage points to 9.4 per cent, the highest rate since August. http://Check out this story from CityNews: https://toronto.citynews.ca/2021/02/05/canada-jobs-january-covid19/
The cost of lockdowns in Canada is at least 10 times higher than the benefit in terms of population health and well-being, he estimates, at least if you account for numerous variables such as economic recession, social isolation and impacts on life expectancy, education and the full gamut of health-care priorities. https://edmontonjournal.com/opinion/columnists/david-staples-lockdowns-will-cause-10-times-more-harm-to-human-health-than-covid-19-itself-says-infectious-disease-expert
Martha Oppel survived Hitler’s Nazis and Stalin’s communists without a police officer knocking on her door. Then along came the COVID-19 pandemic 75 years later. At 85, Oppel is in trouble with the law for attending church. The Ford Government sent Aylmer’s police with an $880 ticket for being inside a Sunday service led by Pastor Henry Hildebrandt, memories from the past flooded her mind. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/warmington-octogenarian-church-goer-hit-with-lockdown-ticket
