Have you read your precious Dr. Bonnie’s book ? The one where she explains how political considerations guided her proclamations during an election campaign . Do you like the fact that she was propping up the NDP rather than caring for the provinces health ?Good for you, Serryah! Any sign of real life there is very nebulous!
You asked what would happen. My first answer, before clarification, outlined more deaths and need to increase hospital capacity. I am not sure it would have significantly affected the economy.
I don't think we have to look at it as two extremes. There are also tonnes of middle ground -- fully open but mask mandate, then with vaccine mandates for example. This would have reduced deaths and transmissions.
Also I did not offer an opinion on the course of action. Not doing what they did would have traded lives for dollars. All choices have consequences. Aside from TrueDope's cocamamy hotel plan for returning air travelers and his closing of flights to the sun destinations I think measures taken (at least in Ontario) have been reasonable.
A little "green" around the f*****g gills are you pgs? You should shut up while you are ahead. B.C. has the best health of any province in Canada.Have you read your precious Dr. Bonnie’s book ?

This is very true. When the vaccines first came out they said get the first one offered. So my wife and I got AZ as that was first available for our age group. Then they said don't mix. So we got a second AZ. Then they said AZ is a bad vaccine -- get Phizer or Moderna. If this happens again, I would certainly wait 6 months for the government to sort out their message. I would not be an early adopter the next time.Do I think Government handled it well? Fuck no. Conflicting messages, talk and take backs from one day to the next, consistency; none of it was and is a thing. Now with the vaccine the messages are fucking WORSE.
What proof are you offering that support your position?Overall, when I think about the world doing nothing and just 'pretending Covid was just the flu', we would have had more situations like Italy at the start, and then as variants appeared - perhaps quicker - death tolls rising. Everywhere would be overrun with people infected/dying. Places like India, Africa, South America would be worse than they are now. I know Sweden is the "Golden Child" the right likes to hold up but it's not and if they woulds top buying that horseshit that'd be great. Even here it'd be hell. Hospitals like my local one would either be shut down or full of patients and with the current health care crisis, both situations would have broke us.
And my mother would be dead.
Likely my dad too.
Other older relatives who have health complications.
Perhaps more my age.
Perhaps more kids.
Nah no evidence of that LOLYou didn’t answer my question ? Why is the esteemed Doctor Bonnie Henry playing politics ?
Funny how that works, whenever someone accomplishes something good or positive, there will always be an asshole chomping at the bit to denigrate him!Nah no evidence of that LOL
Don't pay too much attention to taxme's blathering, Serryah!
You can put every unelected Health official running this country right now in the same breath
Except that A) deaths would be higher, B) infection rate would be higher which would lead to C) no one out buying or spending cause the liklyhood of overload to the health system and infected individuals would seriously screw society.
Remember, besides no lockdowns, there'd be no masks, no attempt at distancing, no other precautions, no vaccine; if no one gave an absolute shit that Covid was out and about and spread, you honestly think things wouldn't be that much different?
