I received a very well thought out and poignant letter from a concerned individual from Ottawa. He expresses clearly a variety of hardships people are facing in Ontario as a result of the COVID restrictions, demonstrating that WE ARE NOT all in this together.
On this Thanksgiving weekend, our government made it harder, nay, impossible for thousands of businesses to stay open. They added further hardships to the elderly, mentally unwell, and poorer communities in Ontario. COVID restrictions have been tightened while all the evidence shows it will do more harm than good. Give this letter a read, and let me know if you agree it is time we stop the fear, end the restrictions, and return to normal.
Also be sure to follow my page, like, and share this post. Let your representatives know what you think of the Thanksgiving COVID restrictions and I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
The rise of fascism in European countries coincided with the Spanish Flu after WW1. Fear was a strong motivator and contributing factor that permitted elected governments in Italy, Spain, and Germany to first embrace a closely intertwined relationship with large corporate businesses working to quickly erode the rights and freedoms of their citizens.
