Don Martin: The second lockdown cometh, but Canadians may resist house arrest


Here we go again as a lockdown and tight restrictions aimed at fighting COVID-19 roll out across a besieged country. Ontario is set to fire the lockdown gun in and around Toronto on Friday. That plus a “hard stop” to social events in Alberta, tough stay-at-home orders in Manitoba, new restrictions on Saskatchewan households, a planned extension to the Christmas school break in Quebec and further restrictions to be announced by B.C. on Thursday means all of Canada’s population outside of Atlantic Canada is heading back in time to March madness. But beyond the question of whether it will work any better the second time around is another concern: Will Canadians accept a long, cold winter under house arrest?
