At this point If you need the government to institute a mask mandate to wear one, YOU are a fucking idiot.

I love this city and the GTA but this is a behavioral issue. You Guys REALLY fucked it up. More people in Peel and Toronto (especially Peel, you crazy kids went ham) became infected and infected others with COVID19 than any other region in the country by a fucking MILE. That’s some good work.

You can blame population density in Toronto more than you can in Peel/Brampton, but this is some excellent work in terms of not caring about the pandemic, and I think the positivity rate reflects the percentage of people in those areas who think it’s still a big fat joke.
One area in Peel has a shopping 19% positivity rate. So 2 in 10 people tested in one large swath of Brampton test positive for Covid 19 and if you’re like me and you wanna know why you’re not allowed to Christmas shop then stop for lunch and 6 glasses of Pinot Grigio getting into the spirit of the season?
No Christmas shopping, no restaurants, no nothing because you simply cannot be trusted. That’s what it boils down too. The rest of the province doesn’t trust that you’ll operate safely in the best interest of your fellow citizens during a global pandemic so not only is the Economy going to get fisted during a traditional BOOM period, Christmas is going to suck ass because medical experts say you can’t be trusted.
So, Eat it.
28 days of humble pie for some is going to fucking kill 10-15 percent of small business in those regions, btw.
While these measured are medically required, it still amazes me some people only take it seriously when they get their freedoms reversed.
Have a great weekend. Soak it up, Toronto and Brampton. Come Monday you’re locked down, Suckaz.
