Many people have been saying that the cure is worse than the disease, including Maxime Bernier. Max has been leading the anti-lockdown campaign for the Peoples Party of Canada. While Max Bernier is certainly not the only leader in this regard, he stands out as the only leader of a federal political party with the courage to take this stance.
Read this report by True North News, refers to Statistics Canada figures which tell the awful truth:
In a report titled Provisional death counts and excess mortality, the government agency reviewed the number of deaths between January 2020 to April 2021 and concluded that 5,535 Canadians under the age of 65 died because of “indirect consequences” due to the pandemic.
Over the same time period, 1380 Canadians in the same age group died because of COVID-19 itself.
“Beyond deaths attributed to the disease itself, the pandemic could also have indirect consequences leading to an increase or decrease in the number of deaths due to various factors, including delayed medical procedures, increased substance use, or a decline in deaths attributable to other causes, such as influenza,” the report says.
The PPC will never implement lockdowns, or promote them. In fact we will actively discourage them. A PPC government will not financially bail out any province that wants to implement lockdowns. The Trudeau government has done this, while encouraging lockdowns. Also, none of the so-called “opposition” parties have objected strongly to these harmful lockdowns.
Only a PPC government will prevent future lockdowns, which have been proven harmful and ineffective in stopping C19.
