IF THIS FEELS LIKE déjà vu… well, it is. Part of it anyway. The part about people choosing to gather in large numbers in the streets to protest, yet again, masks and other COVID restrictions.
Never mind that the health authority has restricted public gatherings and never mind that we’re still very much in a pandemic and a new strain has made its way into our province. Also, never mind that the organizer of this latest protest in Kelowna was fined $2,300 for the third time.
Some choose to trample over their own safety and the safety of others because somehow wearing a mask and respecting restrictions is just too hard to do.
Some want places of worship to be open even though virtual participation is possible and risk-free.
