Well said I was waiting for a reply like this, I was thinking the same thing, don’t want to start on the political points but I can see things are going to get worst. My son works at a big auto supply company in Milton after hearing of people getting sick at the us big 3 auto plants his employer were supplying now my sons coworkers of 3000 started getting sick as well, just had word they closed down and all get the lay-off.I’m pretty sure this is just to keep the image up, economy rolling a bit and keep the uneducated masses happy.
A couple of weeks ago Trudeau was touting that our wonderful medical system has the coverage to deal with the pandemic.
Has anyone seen the # of ventilators the provinces actually have? The lack of PPE that the nurses and drs have. It’s a joke.
Their supply lines for this stuff has been cut off by demands in the USA and the world. Now there is a panic to retool the automakers to produce this stuff when they should have done it after the SARS crisis.
The only way to really slow the virus appears to be to test as many people as possible. Oops the govt fails again and restricts testing because they don’t have the needed equipment to do it.
Most people should be fine and it will be just the milder symptoms. Just make sure all the older folk are staying isolated from the population until they can access a vaccine.
Hopefully everyone here stays safe and doesn’t get it at the same time. That there is the problem!
Sorry had to spout! I hate the governments bullshit all the time!
They did have the PPE but they sent 16 tonnes of it to China. TCI have to say that I’ve been impressed with the level of coordination displayed from top to bottom in politics to date. There has been a relatively unified message from the Feds to the Province right on down to local Mayors etc. I am actually pretty surprised at the relative lack of politicking here. The only thing I blame them for so far is lack of PPE. Every province and then the feds on top of them should have a bunch of sea cans stashed full of N95’s, gloves and sanitizer to distribute to hospital staff in times of crisis. Sure they might expire from time to time but at this point I’m certain no one in the medical community would turn their noses up at an expired mask! And do they even really expire, I think not.
