  • Publicado el 10 ene 2022

    British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan schools returned to in-class learning this week or last. Meanwhile, New Brunswick students will stay online until at least January 24, and Newfoundland and Labrador is still assessing.

    Constant fear mongering by politicians, mainstream media, and medical "experts" created that anxiety.

      @Political Foolishness totally agree. And the teachers back then didn't need all their little helpers

      She is right - she shouldn't have 30 kids in her classroom. Perhaps 38-39 would be better like when I went to school. Today's teachers are lazy @sses.

    so schools are closed and the number are up. so what your saying is it doesn't matter if there open or closed, therefore the schools should be open as your imposing more health risks by keeping them closed.

      Is this not the same for all the lockdowns, distancing, masking, and Quebec curfew?

      @B You are in for a surprise if you think that is tough. The neoliberal system will put a lot more pressure on you. There are far greater issues, such as how you will be a wave slave for life as a result of criminal trudeau and his buddies denying you and everyone your age the opportunity to buy a residence to live in, and how cost of living will go up even if you are a professional and make relatively good money you will live like a McDonalds worker while those born earlier/luckier than you will have hundreds of properties getting rich doing nothing. There is also climate change that will affect you and your kids. There are far greater and bigger issues coming than spending some time online. This will build resilience if anything. Neoliberal capitalism is a mental disorder.

      @Nick I know the feeling. Sometimes I have to edit my posts for 10 minutes trrying to find out which harmless keyword is causing the 1984 youtube censor. Even though I may potentially disagree with you I am still interested in what you have to say. I think that is how we get to the truth. Not through censorship. It is rather pathetic. Then these clowns wonder why people are hesitant to get the V.

      @Nick ICUs are not but hospitals beds are. As a result surgeries are being cancelled. As a result people are dying. That is still a problem. Also, ICUs are gonna double in 1-2 weeks, those numbers ain't pretty either. Putting more strain on the hospital system before we even know what the peak for hospitalizations and ICU will be is foolishness.

    1:23 he's left out some key details when he says, "hospital system" --- what he really means is: "monopolized, rationed, hospital system".
    One that won't allow for any competition and thus condemns everyone to follow these measures, as to avoid a self-implosion that otherwise would not occur.

    Of course they are anxious not necessarily from Covid but by the fact that they will probably close again eventually once they reopen this report already is kind of giving the hint beforehand

    Why dont they allow limited number of kids in schools everyday or make it voluntary and give parents the option to let their kids attend online? Allow teachers to teach online on somedays or if they are coivd positve.

    If teachers do t have the mental fortitude to withstand being in school with kids they should do something else. BTW, why don’t we have psychological evaluations for teachers like other professions?

      @Benny Blanco I dropped many more truth bombs that day;) I have been homeschooling since March 2020. He went for a few weeks at the start of this school year while they were allowed to choose not to wear face coverings.

      @Floating Leaf these teachers are abusing their powers. I hope you've considered homeschooling or learning pods. Your son or any other child doesn't deserve this. 🙏

      It's much safer to be around kids who are a much lesser vector for spread than it is to work in an office of adults.
      If I were a teacher, I'd be looking on the bright side of my job being one of the less riskier ones, all things considered.

      I asked the teachers at my kids school if they ever thought they would be turning kids away from school? My son brought up the fact that Malala got shot just to go to school. I got a call later that day and was told I wasn't allowed back on school grounds, my son would be though, if he wore a face covering...

    Christine Elliott the health minister in Ontario will be facing a criminal complaint as was filed recently in the Superior Court of Justice by a consortium of 1k lawyers and 10k doctors led by Dr. Reiner Füellmich of Germany this case will revolve on the roll out of mandates and certain abnormalities surrounding it's safety.

    Whose anxiety?
    All I've heard are complaints from kids that they've missed school.
    The anxiety of kids rise when they AREN'T in school.
    It's the anxiety of members of this new religion of hygiene that increases --- whenever any "sinner" isn't following their dogma.
