I heard this story on the radio while driving into work this morning.  I had hoped I had misheard the announcer when they said that health care workers had been verbally assaulted and in some cases physically assaulted while doing their jobs.

But sadly, no.

“Crowds of people opposed to COVID-19 vaccinations clogged the streets of Vancouver and demonstrated outside hospitals across B.C. on Wednesday afternoon, earning the indignation of some political leaders.

According to police estimates, thousands of demonstrators gathered outside hospitals in Vancouver, Kelowna, Kamloops, Victoria, Prince George, Nanaimo and in other Canadian cities.

The protests were organized by Canadian Frontline Nurses, a group founded by two Ontario nurses who have promoted conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and attended rallies in the U.S. for those who think the pandemic is a “fraud.” In posters for the event, dubbed “worldwide walkout,” the group urged supporters to “stand up for freedom” and “reject the tyranny of mandatory vaccines.”

Unbelievable.

 

 

  “Protesters carried signs with slogans criticizing vaccine passports as a form of discrimination and chanted “freedom” and “crimes against humanity.”

By the early evening, one health authority was reporting a physical assault against a health-care worker. Island Health’s president and CEO Kathy MacNeil said some of the protests on Vancouver Island had disrupted people’s safe access to health care.”

You can’t go to school without the mandated vaccinations.  This is just like that, public health mandates are good for society.  These people are protesting for the freedom to spread Covid-19 to others, because of their monumental ignorance and gullibility.

  “What happened to our health-care teams today is not acceptable to me nor to the people and communities they serve. Our health-care teams deserve respect and support, no matter what personal beliefs we hold.”

Health Minister Adrian Dix described the protests as “despicable.”

“The nature of the protest to disrupt people when they go to hospital, people who are going there for surgery or for other circumstances, or to visit loved ones or to be with loved ones when they pass away, to have a protest there is really not acceptable behaviour,” he said.”

It is not the people at the hospitals that are ‘ruining your freedom’ and ‘imposing tyranny’ on you.  Look at your political class.  They are making the call here and if you have issues with them, go protest at the legislature or city hall.  But stay the heck away from hospitals and health care workers who are doing their best (and have been doing their best for a very long time) to keep people alive during this pandemic.

The stupid people are now the deadly dynamos of this pandemic.

“We have a window of opportunity to rapidly accelerate vaccine uptake and close the protection gap in younger age groups.”

The number of cases in Canada each day grew from about 700 in early August, to almost 3,500 now. The vast majority of cases are among unvaccinated individuals, with Tam saying unvaccinated people are 12 times more likely to be infected and 36 times more likely to be hospitalized if they get infected.

New modelling released Friday showed if the current rate of transmission of COVID-19 remains the same, Canada could see more than 15,000 new cases a day by the beginning of October.

So, the ignorant are weeding themselves out of society, but at too great a cost for the rest of us.  It’s sad a I have to compile stories like this, I thought Canadians as a whole had a better grip on reality.
