8pm curfew alarm in Quebec sounds like a zombie apocalypse. Could they not have found a better sound? pic.twitter.com/39gpAWoIM6

Quebec COVID curfew went into effect last night and it’s coming to Ontario for obvious reasons. We can’t be trusted.
Police helicopters and a massive police presence on the streets of Quebec began last night and it has a real martial law vibe.

The institution of a curfew is absolutely fucking pointless. It’s worse than pointless. It’s counterproductive to staying away from each other.
8 pm to 5 am curfews will result in funneling massive groups of Ontarians into grocery stores at the same time increasing the risk of spread and infection. Concentrating outside activity to a specific timeframe in specific locations is the least effective way to prevent infection and spread according to EVERYTHING we’ve learned about mass gatherings in a pandemic. Isn’t that the messaging we’ve all been getting? ‘Don’t gather indoors in large groups’ was the very first message of viral mitigation if I’m not mistaken.
If we’re at the point of mandatory curfew, our political leaders have absolutely FAILED. Provincial and federal leaders have played hot potato with our lives and livelihoods in an attempt to curate political capital. Now, those same leaders are reaching into a grab bag of restrictive ideas to penalize us for their fucking mistakes?
The politics behind restricting our movement isn’t part of a great reset or a larger conspiracy theory. Our elected officials used politics to determine our course of action. That’s all this curfew is. Extreme solutions like curfews make it look like our provincial and federal leaders care, but it doesn’t mean they do.
The majority of us don’t need lockdowns or curfews to do the right thing. Most of us don’t need to be told to stay home or not gather with others at the height of a pandemic responsible for the death of 16,000 Canadians but ALL of us should be frustrated with our quality of life.
We know Ford, Trudeau, Kenny, et al aren’t capable of conducting the business of the people, for the people, and that’s part of it. We’re also here thanks to insufferable, anti-science morons who’ve carelessly spread this virus by pretending it isn’t as real or as deadly as it is.
There have never been serious, individual consequences for acting irresponsibly during the pandemic. Fines are nothing more than threats of fines. To the best of my knowledge, no one has been charged or arrested for not abiding by Covid restrictions and provinces are now choosing to punish their people en masse?
My curfew lasts 24 hours a day unless I need to get supplies because I don’t trust anyone. I assume I have COVID and everyone around me does too because I believe in science and natural consequences. Had our leaders followed through on HALF of the threats to the anti-mask/hoaxer community or made tough decisions when it really mattered, we wouldn’t be talking about curfews and restricting movement. Millions of Canadian small businesses wouldn’t be closing shop and your grandma might be alive today, too. Our kids would be in class right now if we weren’t afraid of alienating the dumbest segment of Canada if we penalized irresponsibility and purveyors of bullshit.
Stay woke to truth and facts not rumors of police states and martial law. That’s for pea-brained, traitors like Ontario MPP Randy Hillier who should be thrown in fucking jail for perpetuating the conspiracy theories responsible for the death of thousands of Canadians.
The irony of Hillier’s stupid tweet is he was one of the major agents of disinformation which led to the lockdown and impending curfew. He’s now weaponizing the fruits of his dumb labor to endear himself to brain dead, paranoid Canadians who are responsible for community spread and these impending restrictions.
If you plan on tweeting about martial law or government overreach, include extremists, anti maskers, and hoaxers, on your public shaming ‘hit list’ because that’s where this whole thing starts.
