Re: EDITORIAL – How is it that the heroes of the pandemic are suddenly bums?

And we would still be in the pandemic?

I’m a cdc trained pandemic modeler. Wrote software they used to train and helped guide the response for h1n1.

You’re completely out to lunch.

Take some time and look at the deaths in B.C. over the last 3 years compared to 2019. The lockdowns and restrictions killed and harmed far more than the virus ever could. This is easily proven by looking at stats on other countries and some U.S. states.

Stop hero worshipping Henry ands Dix. They should be imprisoned for what they did to us.

    Dear Keith

    Common persons like myself do not have the information that you have. Just looking around it is hard to believe that we even went through a global pandemic…and then there was the Monkey Pox, and now it is not. We need a way to understand, to cut through the bullshit, to trust. Pretty confusing.
