  1. Show your face, cowards. You all know what your are doing is wrong and for your stupidity we have to be inside, the closings are consequence of actions like the one you and your followers are organizing.

    Who is paying all these people to gather there in the park protesting masks and vaccines…

    Who pays the organizers… they respond to some interest.

    Follow the money.

  2. I support all those who refuse to drink the govenment Kool Aid they are being forced to swallow. Like sheeple on the way to the nearest cliff, the less intelligent of society will chastize and castigate all who disagree with them

    It amazes me to no end how ready people are to get a vaccine that has not been thoroughly tested, and has many side effects. So who is stupid now?

      • Sorry I do not follow any network news when there are so many other intelligent sources of verifiable information out there.
        A lazy person will follow any news that is all concocted videos.
        Those who have the ability to question will read more than watch the garbage they are being fedon their fav news channel and believe it all.
        I would be willing to bet you were fist in line for your shot.

        Ignorance is bliss for the masses of sheep.

  3. End of the day no matter what side you’re on the law is the law just like in non pandemic times ! You break the law or a bylaw you get arrested or fined !

  4. Hopefully everyone that was at the first gathering was documented and will get ticketed as well, but these illegal gatherings will continue, possibly even with tinfoil hats, because you just can’t fix stubborn-stupid.

    • How about when the protests come from people with masks on that are not anti vaxxers. I think that is coming very shortly. With rumours that the stay at home order will be extended to June 2nd and that the ban on recreational activities will not be lifted until cases are under 1000 people you can count on people like me who have followed every protocol since day 1 to say enough is enough. We have 14 cases outstanding today , which does not justify these lockdowns after 14 months of government restrictions. We have small businesses that have folded throughout this city and others that need to reopen to live . We are in the north and should not be held responsible for the numbers in the GTA. You cannot paint all areas of the province with the same brush especially when you have not with the vaccine rollout.

  5. Or donated the cash to a needy charitable group instead of throwing it away over this ridiculousness…just stay home or mask up so this order can be lifted sooner than later!
