  1. 99.99% of all the deaths under 75 are unhealthy people who are mostly overweight/obese. Why are the politicos and health care pros not telling people to eat healthy and lose weight until you are at a healthy weight, get plenty of exercise, drink alcohol in moderation and stop vaping, cigarettes and pot smoking.
    Of course, in a woke world some people would be offended, and we can’t speak the truth and have that.
    As it is now healthy people being vaccinated is to protect the unhealthy.
    The vaccines can help the unhealthy, though, many are catching C19 and getting very sick and dying.
    The politicos and health experts say, though people are dying from the vaccines toxicity the it’s worth the risk to prevent you from dying from C19. That is true for the unhealthy but is not a reality for healthy people and in some hospitals in the US over 50% of the staff refuse the vaccines. Remember all the vaccines are fast-tracked for emergency use and the populations are the guinea pigs. If you are healthy and want a jab go for it but do some research first.

  2. After of decades of populations stuffing themselves like they are foie-gras geese, overweight/obesity is around 60% in Canada, America and Mexico and growing, it’s no wonder a virus comes along and starts culling the unhealthy.
    Canada needs a plan to get the population and healthy so the unhealthy don’t bankrupt the health care system. The health and responsible should not have to pay for the irresponsible unhealthy.
