(LifeSiteNews) — A top doctor in Ontario has said that he is willing to recommend that mask mandates return if the province continues to see “an increase in hospitalizations” due to COVID-19.
Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kieran Moore, said in a recent interview with Global News that he has no qualms about recommending the return of mask mandates to the province if hospital cases of COVID-19 continue to increase. He recommended that people mask up and receive their booster shot in order to avoid a strain on the health system.
“If there is any significant impact on our health system where we can’t care for Ontarians appropriately, I will absolutely have the conversation with government [around] whether we have to mandate masking for a set period of time,” he said.
Moore made these recommendations despite numerous studies raising the alarm on the effectiveness and safety of both masks and the COVID-19 shots. Coronavirus vaccine trials have never produced evidence that the vaccines stop infection or transmission, and, moreover, studies show that the vaccines can harm one’s health. Over 850,000 injuries from coronavirus shots reported to the U.S. government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System as of October 29, 2021. Masks have also been proven ineffective, as well as dangerous, by various studies.
The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) failed spectacularly at resisting the initial COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates that were imposed by the government on freedom-loving Canadians.
Most CPC MPs subserviently complied with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in creating a police-state where our Charter Rights were regularly violated, but now Pierre Poilievre would have us believe they have turned a corner and nothing like it will ever happen again.
How can they rebuild our trust? Well, they can start by owning up to their terrible mistakes.
SIGN: The CPC must apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID regime.
You will remember how freedom-loving Canadians were abandoned by the CPC, with Erin O'Toole calling for vaccine passports and most CPC MPs pearl-clutching about "vaccine hesitancy".
That was until the party realized how popular the Truckers' Convoy had become and got behind the movement.
It's quite possible the CPC would still be mute on vaccine mandates and lockdowns were it not for the heroic Freedom Convoy that converged on Ottawa.
Let's not forget the businesses, churches, schools and universities that were shuttered for months on end because of the COVID hysteria generated by politicians in Ottawa, and the CPC did nothing.
They did nothing when people started losing their livelihoods (with some Canadians even losing their lives to suicide) because of the government's deranged policy of locking people down.
The CPC must show they have learned a lesson from the COVID tyranny Canadians needlessly suffered and that they contributed to.
SIGN: Demand the CPC apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.
In yet another reminder of how disconnected from reality the CPC were, MPs like Leslyn Lewis, Marilyn Gladu and Rosemarie Falk were omitted from their "Shadow Cabinet" in November 2021 because they dared to question the COVID shots.
Canadians must still contend with vaccine mandates in some settings and the intrusive ArriveCAN system in order to re-enter the country, while we are among the last three countries in the world to continue discriminating against unvaccinated visitors who remain barred from entering.
As Pierre Poilievre takes the reigns of the CPC, conservative voters must demand an apology from the party that abandoned them during the COVID-hysteria of the past two years.
SIGN: The CPC can rebuild trust by apologizing for capitulating to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.
On Thursday, however, Moore said in an interview with CP24 News that Ontario has seen a spike in hospitalizations and numbers of people in intensive care over the last few weeks, and that masking and vaccination boosters will help to avoid this.
“Just this morning I saw 139 individuals in our intensive care unit,” he said. “So, I’m very happy that we’re announcing the release of the Pfizer bivalent vaccine.”
Moore also told interviewers that the province will be participating in an “aggressive communication strategy” with the federal government in order to promote this new vaccine across Ontario. He recommends that people who are susceptible to COVID-19 keep wearing masks to protect themselves.
“My recommendation would be: Anyone at risk to this virus continue to mask as you’re going indoors in at-risk public settings,” Moore said.
“If we see a significant impact on the health system, we will be making more and more recommendations of wearing masks to cut down the risk of all these viruses,” he continued.
Moore also said that he hoped Ontarians would take advantage of the widespread availability of booster shots in order to protect themselves and society against COVID-19, to avoid a strain on the medical system, and to “maintain protection” against COVID-19 throughout the oncoming winter.
“I’m sure all Ontarians want to help our healthcare workers who are working in difficult environments to minimize the impacts … on our health system,” he said.
“Thirty-thousand just yesterday came forward to get vaccinated. I’d love to see those numbers higher. We have the vaccine, we have vaccinators, we have capacity for roughly 80,000 individuals per day,” Moore said.
“We need to protect Ontarians against this virus,” he continued. “As we go indoors, we all have to maintain all those layers of protection but one of the most fundamental is staying boosted. These vaccines provide a great increase in our immune protection and will decrease our risk at an individual level and a community level of getting ill.”
In his interview with Global News, Moore said that the low number of those among the elderly population who have received their boosters in Ontario is “not acceptable.”
“Sixteen percent is absolutely not acceptable to me,” said Moore. ”The bivalent vaccine is excellent… at protecting against Omicron strains. We are so fortunate to have them in Ontario, accessible, and available, and free.”
However, the bivalent vaccines have had no human trials and have only been tested on mice.
“Covid’s not going away,” he told CP24. “It’s a formidable foe, and we need to maintain that wall of immunity to protect all Ontarians.”
However, Moore said back in January that Canadians need to “learn to live with COVID-19.”
“We have let our lives be controlled for the last two years in a significant amount of fear, and now we are going to have to change some of that thinking,” he said at the time.
Moore also has a previous track record of lying to Canadians about the number of people affected by the virus.
