Re: Masks are back… on the agenda; Debate on the return of face coverings to the Ottawa-Carleton School Board, November 19

Content of the article

Here we go again with the segment of our population that just won’t give up trying to control others. If these people living in virtual terror were successful, our children would be forced to wear masks to school every winter.

The big fear is no longer COVID, however, it is now influenza and RSV. So let’s mask up our kids again this year and demand a mandate to force everyone to do it too, and then we can do it all again next winter.

I believe our provincial government is well aware that another mask mandate would not sit well with the people of Ontario, but hey, let’s at least force the kids to wear one, because they don’t really have a say. .

Go on. Stop behaving like disbelievers! Mask up! You know the facts. You have been informed by qualified experts. Much more qualified than you. Your bad behavior hurts and kills people. Don’t wait for Dougie to tell you. He is too anxious to be loved. He spends your money to profit from his own selfish plans.

We must end this pandemic that has gone on for too long. Without masking, this will not happen.



(Preventing disease and death seems like a good thing.)


It’s not a pandemic issue, it’s a health care crisis that includes physical, mental and addictions health, and nursing homes. Having been in direct contact with our health care for the past few months as a patient (due to heart issues) and as a relative of an elderly person, I can guarantee that our system is totally broken and in horrible shape.

The federal government covers only about 22% of health care costs, and the rest is the responsibility of provincial and territorial governments. This is totally wrong; health care affects all of us, no matter where we live or who we are in this country. The provincial governments have asked the federal government to increase its contribution to 35%.

I believe that in the state we are in now, the feds should increase it to 60% and for everyone to use common sense. If the federal government stopped giving money to other countries or in the name of climate change, it might have money for its own people to help them out of this crisis. It affects all of us, no matter where we live in this country or whether we are young or old.



(Health care is in crisis, it’s time to act.)


Trudeau travels the world giving away our money without even caring what Canadians think. It’s funny, his ego is so big that he thinks he can save the world but has no solutions or cares to fix the things that are wrong with him. All we get is “Sorry, no money left, I gave it all away.”



(Canada certainly has pressing problems at home that require solutions.)
