Quebec Premier François Legault’s proposed tax for people not vaccinated for COVID-19 is generating reaction right across Canada. While other premiers aren’t on board, Mike Le Couteur explains how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn’t denouncing the idea.

From major privacy breaches to harmful content driving extremist movements, social media has influenced multiple dangers in the real world. So can the federal government regulate it? Should it? Anne Gaviola looks at the push for Ottawa to do more.

  1. Government purposely fudging covid numbers. The vast majority of covid cases in hospitals has always been coincidental meaning patient came in for something else and since hospitals test all patients for covid if one tests positive or has covid symptoms then deemed hospitalized due to covid even though that’s not the primary reason patient came in or are symptoms remotely related to covid. In Canada its around 92%. Example today in Saskatchewan only 11 patients in ICU due to covid and of those 11 there was 9 came in for unrelated problems 5 heart and stroke 2 GI tract 1 from diabetes and 1 from a car accident. I live beside Regina general hospital and know lots of ICU staff including next door neighbor.

  2. where do you suppose the droplets of mad cow disease came from? maybe the ship it was on before it got to china right, you poisoned the stock right!

  3. It’s against section 7 of the charter of rights especially when it’s not a proven drug plain and simple or then who will be responsible and what penalties will the government have to pay if there are long term adverse effects especially with vax toxicity

  4. Absolutely despicable!!! Let’s start putting the blame on our crumbling healthcare system where it belongs! The government and mismanagement for years🤬

  5. I’m going to stop watching your news if you continue to show ads in between stories. Why did you recently change?

  6. I just had COVid. I’m un vaccinated. I was sick at home, and wouldn’t choose to die in a hospital.
    Keep your health care…
    Shut up about vaccination… not interested.

  7. We’re going to correct historic wrongs, but we’ll find some new scapegoats? Two years ago, the PM stated “we don’t have a constitutional crisis…YET”; I think we do now, unless the definitions of human, humane and human rights “quietly” changed, when everyone was locked up in their homes for two years?

  8. SURE!!!! GOVERNMENT BLAMES THE PEOPLE!!! THIS VIRUS CAME OUT OF NOWHERE AND IT IS ALL WRAPPED IN CONSPIRACY. NO NORMAL EVERYDAY CITIZENS FAULT FOR THIS VIRUS FLOATING AROUND. IT IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE AND THAT IS THE TRUTH. STOP THIS BECAUSE IT IS ONLY GOING TO CAUSE UNREST IN QUEBEC. POSSIBLY SERIOUS RIOTS THIS TIME AROUND. CIVIL WAR. IT IS NOT FAIR TO PEOPLE.
