There’s no passport required at this restaurant. Or questions about your personal health. “Everybody is welcome like they always were,” said the popular GTA eatery’s owner. Its name and location is a secret to everyone but regular customers who worry that once the word leaks out, the jig is up. Staff wonder if police, bylaw, or health inspectors may go undercover to crush their freedom and joke about coming up with a clandestine password. This came in response to Premier Doug Ford and Health Minister Christine Elliott’s news release stating people are “required to show their vaccine receipt when entering designated settings along with another piece of photo identification, such as a driver’s licence or health card.” It’s like going through airport security for pancakes now. Mall food courts have also been turned into segregated zones where security personnel check papers like prison guards who review credentials of visitors before they see inmates. These Orwellian measures have resulted in those who refuse to comply being turned away. It has created heated confrontations as some restaurants turned to social media to say count them out.
I won’t spend much time reiterating the mistakes made that cost more than 3,700-plus seniors their lives just in long-term care homes alone. That came out loud and clear when long-term care minister Merrilee Fullerton testified before the Long-Term Commission at the end of February. The iron ring Ford promised to put around LTC homes never happened. The second wave was even worse. I know. I lost my dad during that time. But his government had time to ram through Bill 218, an outrageous piece of legislation that protects negligent LTC homes in lawsuits brought by families who lost loved ones during the first and second waves. You would have thought nearly 4,000 deaths would have taught our provincial leaders something. But the fiascos continue.
LONDON — London police faced a backlash from the public and politicians on Sunday for their heavy-handed tactics in breaking up an outdoor vigil for a woman whose suspected killer is a police officer. The disappearance of Sarah Everard, 33, as she walked home on the evening of March 3, has provoked a huge outpouring of grief and dismay in Britain at the failure of police and wider society to tackle violence against women. U.K. cops face backlash after dragging mourners from vigil for murdered woman Close sticky video Police had denied permission for a vigil on Saturday evening at London’s Clapham Common, near where Everard was last seen alive, citing regulations aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus. But hundreds of people, mostly women, gathered peacefully at the park in defiance of the ban to pay their respects to Everard throughout the day, including Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Late on Saturday dozens of police officers marched into the crowd to shouts of “shame on you.” Scuffles broke out and officers dragged women away from the scene.
Medicevo’s Graphene Face Mask uses a patented production process that implants graphene into the fabric of the mask directly, creating a microscopic sharp-edged netting. When a virus comes in contact with Medicevo’s Graphene Face Mask, the graphene netting slices through the virus particle, killing it. The masks are scientifically proven to kill COVID-19 particles and other types of infectious diseases like the seasonal flu, which is key for disease control and prevention. Medicevo’s Graphene Face Mask features four layers of protection. The outer layer comprises high-quality antibacterial, non-woven fabric with strong air permeability but isolates droplets and large particles. The graphene layer and patented plating technology kill more than 99% of viruses and germs. A melt-blown cloth layer creates an isolation and dustproof effect, filtering particles less than 0.3 microns in size. Finally, a skin-friendly inner lining with honeycomb-woven fabric and adjustable ear loops stretch over the wearer’s nose and mouth to ensure a secure and airtight fit.
