Wearing of masks doesn’t seem to be mandatory

Security at hockey games, malls and elsewhere turning a blind eye

The B.C. ruling is that masks are mandatory.

Not true. On the front page of the Dec. 23 Cowichan Valley Citizen newspaper is a picture of Santa Claus with a student from Queen Margaret’s School. Both are not wearing masks.

Fans at Vancouver Canucks hockey games are sitting in the seats once again with no wearing of masks. Do what you want. Security everywhere turns a blind eye to the mandatory mask ruling.

Note that when out shopping, how many people are wearing masks but their noses are not covered. Once again, security turns a blind eye. Just one big joke!

The odds of winning a jackpot in the Lotto 6/49 or Lotto Max draws is zero in your lifetime. You do have a 100 per cent chance of being infected by the Omicron virus as people who are double vaccinated along with the booster shot are now being infected with the Omicron virus.

In the year 2021, Pfizer has now collected $36 billion in revenue from its vaccine sales worldwide. Our federal government pays Pfizer $19.50 per dose via taxpayer dollars.

We have 82.7 per cent of the B.C. population now double vaccinated, and yet, we are seeing record breaking numbers of COVID.

It proves that the vaccines are not working.

In summary, everyone must stay home. If not, you will be winning a bout with the Omicron virus. Definitely time to wake up and smell the coffee.
