Ontario will extend its stay-at-home order and introduce additional restriction measures, with police granted additional powers to enforce the restrictions, Premier Doug Ford said on April 16.
“We’re losing the battle between the variants and vaccines,” Ford said. “The pace of vaccine supply has not kept up with the spread of the new COVID variants.”
The province is extending the previous four-week stay-at-home order by two weeks, and limiting interprovincial travel from Manitoba and Quebec only for purposes such as work, health care services, and transportation of good and services.
The province is also giving police and bylaw officers additional authority effective April 17 to enforce the public health measures during the stay-at-home order. This includes police having the ability to ask people for their home addresses and purpose for not being at their residence while outside. Police can also stop vehicles and ask people inside the reason they have left home.
All non-essential construction will be closed as well, and outdoor recreational amenities, such as golf courses, basketball courts, soccer fields, and playgrounds will be closed with “limited exceptions.” Big box stores will only be able to operate at 25 percent capacity.
Outdoor gatherings will only be allowed for members of the same household and one more person who lives alone, or a caregiver for a member of the household.
Starting April 19, places of worship will be capped at a maximum of 10 people indoors or outdoors.
Ford is also calling on the federal government to further control the international borders.
"It's deja-vu all over again!"
May 2047: Just two more weeks.
Orthodox Holy Week and Pascha are screwed over....AGAIN.
It will be interesting to see what pushback, if any, comes from Metropolitan JOSEPH of the Antiochian Archdiocese.
He has not taken kindly to fixed numerical caps on attendance.
FauXi’s ‘rona sat on a wall,
FauXi’s ‘rona had a great fall,
All of the lockdown and mask-up charades
Couldn’t rebottle the ‘rona I’m ‘fraid.
Prolonging the Plannedemic Puritanism appears to be the goal.
If a second Easter, a second Independence Day, a second Thanksgiving and a second Christmas can be squelched through fearmongering (if not outright government oppression) it may not be much longer before people will not only not wish to return to pre-Plannedemic celebrations, but will actually begin to lose the memory of what such celebrations were like.
This is the CCP’s global “Cultural Revolution”.
That’s about it...
It reminds me of the Star Wars scene where Leah tells General Tarkin, “ The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.”
The more the democrat/liberals force more restrictive lock downs, the more the cases spread.
I we would have done NOTHING year ago, enough people would have recovered from the Fauci Flu to have Herd Immunity by August LAST YEAR!!
Easier for Christians to worship in China than in Ontario these days.
Ontario is China-east, eh?
The League of the Militant Godless
How long before the Bishops are executed?
Seems to me they got the wrong headline!
‘’We’re losing the battle between the variants and vaccines”
Plenty if freepers that likely approve - all these variants and such slipping behind the curve.
They asked for it. Like South Park said in the movie "**ck Canada!"
Police have come out & said they won’t enforce these edicts and that they won’t stop & question people. They’re fed up
Well, it’s probably British Columbia that China is taking over by colonization. Maybe re-name it Sino-Columbia.
So, this is the official theme song for those of us living in Ontario as of this morning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3iXV_2xJyc
Don’t hear this one anymore.
Amazing how the so-called 'conservative' Premiers in Kanadahar, are the ones instituting the most fascist rules. Quebec (with a relatively conservative Premier, at least for Quebec) has a curfew at 9:30 PM because 'rona only attacks at night in Quebec. 'Dick' Ford, of course, and let's not forget 'Comrade' Jason Kenney, of Alberta, and his government's occupation of a church! Of course, in Alberta, our strain of 'rona ONLY attacks people in churches.
That 'rona virus is VERY smart in where it attacks people, at least in 'conservative Provinces in Canada!
