Wearing mask a small sacrifice
Could someone ask our veterans if their service means people have the choice not to wear masks? Or because of their sacrifices, perhaps, we live in a country where we ought to wear masks to ensure our freedoms.
I’ll stand two metres away from Second World War veterans wearing a mask in honour of their sacrifice. It’s something to join the service; it’s nothing to wear a mask.
Retailers should enforce mask rules
My solution for these no-mask people is to have retail stores follow the rules they post on their doors — no masks, no service. When they approach the cashier without a mask, refuse to serve them and send them on their way. Their ignorance is very disturbing for us seniors.
Mask bylaw must be enforced
The mandatory mask wearing bylaw was put into place to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Ontario.
The problem with the bylaw is that not enough places are enforcing it and they are allowing people into stores without masks on.
Mandatory means everybody, not just some people.
Aylmer protest reckless, stupid
Having watched the news coverage regarding the “freedom march” in Aylmer on Saturday, it was obvious that the protesters who were carrying placards saying “I’d rather die of COVID-19 than of loneliness” were members of the Church of God led by an attention-seeking and controversial pastor.
This pastor dictates all aspects of his followers’ lives: what they must wear, how women will wear their hair and how their children will be raised and disciplined.
I find it ironic that these people whose lives are so strictly and rigidly controlled would take part in a “freedom march.”
Aylmer has had about 90 cases of COVID-19 which is by far the largest number of any community in Elgin and Oxford counties. Its per capita COVID-19 caseload is higher than in Toronto.
This rally was dangerous and stupid.
