    Enough of spreading fear let’s get ontario working instead of continuing to throw money at the virus. Take the LTC homes our of the static’s.
    . Learn to live with the virus and let’s not bankrupt Canada and leave our young people with no hope.
    Open the marinas as well so the boaters can go to their summer homes. We do not want to lose our FREEDOM
