Freedoms lost

It is sad that Mr. Godbout resorts to name calling and intimidation of anyone who does not accept the official position of the establishment (read The State), rather than supporting his point of view with sound arguments and facts. It is noteworthy that Mr. Godbout can sit in his proverbial “glass house and throw stones” since he still has a job and a paycheck. 

Here are some facts: millions of people have lost their income (livelihood) in Canada and every other country that has enforced these lockdown measures. Dozens of people in Canada have been arrested, detained, and/or fined for exercising their right to freedom of movement, freedom of assembly and peaceful protest. In Canada, there have been few, if any deaths of young people under the age of 20. Approximately 80 per cent of the deaths have been elderly people in extended care homes. Most of the people in between have recovered. Our governments are spending billions of dollars while tax revenue has tanked. This is fiscal suicide!

In a few short months, we have lost many of the freedoms that people suffered and died to preserve. Wake up, Canada. Fight for freedom.
