    How can this be? I keep getting told that COVID-19 is no worse than a cold!

    This fear mongering needs to stop. Canada’s statistics are far worse than ours and right now there is a trucker convoy headed to Ottawa to protest the vaccine mandates. Most people are unaware because the press isn’t reporting on it. Canadians. The most polite law abiding people in h th e west. Are they all crazy fringe Trumpers?

    People have had enough of this nonsenses. Two deaths are again reported with no details on whether they died with or from covid. This cannot continue. If you want people to believe that these deaths are all from the disease then some honestly should be in order.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      “Two deaths are again reported with no details on whether they died with or from covid.”

      That is not correct. There have been six COVID-19 related deaths announced this month. Three separate announcements have been made this month with 2 COVID-19 related deaths on each occasion.

      • aceboy says:

        What is not correct about it? I am only taking about these being two MORE deaths. None of them were reported to have died with or from COVID, just “related”.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          Have you ever heard of euphemisms or flowery language ?
          Once upon a time when we had inquests regularly published in the papers a person who ended up succumbing to injuries in a road crash where their head was split open from hitting a utility pole at 60mph was described as death by misadventure.

          I think the term is used to maybe soften the blow for family and friends , nothing nefarious really . No tin foil hat theories .

          • aceboy says:

            Soften the blow? Huh? How naive can you possibly be?

            • Toodle-oo says:

              Well , maybe it wasn’t the very best term to use but if your conspiracy theories don’t allow you to consider other ‘options’ then that’s on you , not me .

            • Joe Bloggs says:

              A person who dies from blood loss due to stab wounds or a gunshot wound dies from “exsanguination”, not being “stabbed to death” or “shot to death”. Hence the “covid related” deaths.

      “Canada’s statistics are far worse than ours”

      LOL…only if you’re a complete moron and can’t understand numbers.

  3. Rig says:

    Still people dying and still only 72% vaccinated. I don’t get it.

    • Sandgrownan says:

      Oh, that’s easy to answer. People are stupid.

      • aceboy says:

        They sure are.

        In a few years we will find out just how stupid some people have been.

        • LOL (original) says:

          It will not take long conspiracy seem to be proven true in a few months. Lab leak, no bats at that wet market, Russia, Russia and you guest it more Russia wonder if the dems ever moved the server they had in the Ukraine…….

          LOL I support the truckers they are for anti mandated.

          • sandgrownan says:

            The anti-mask, vax, it’s all a conspiracy, just the flu routine, is quite possibly the biggest example of global human stupidity of recent times.

            From truckers in Canada, Republicans in the US, NHS workers in the UK…..turning a global public health crisis into a political cause is beyond f**king stupid.

            • LOL (original) says:

              “The anti-mask, vax, it’s all a conspiracy” – Correction they are anti mandate big difference.

              LOL
