We're living in a political pandemic

The damage that lockdowns do is completely dismissed by the authorities.

The rights and freedoms guaranteed in the Charter of Right and Freedoms are given hardly any mention. 

There is no balance in the approach taken by authorities and they have changed their positions on critical parts of the lockdowns, from distancing to masks. Once follow the science meant six feet, not any more, once follow the science meant no masks, not anymore. 

If social distancing and masks are so effective how come cases are continuing to rise as we speak in Ontario and British Columbia? Most studies from around the world (Swiss Policy Research, Alex Berenson’s book) have shown that masks are ineffective. 

The Great Barrington Declaration said in part:

“Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. 

“Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice. Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. 

As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e.  the point at which the rate of new infections is stable, and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity. 

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this focused protection.

They have been and are being ignored.
