Because of lockdown, it is again difficult to get parts and materials from stores. There may be delays, and service may take longer than usual to complete. Also there are restrictions, specific rules for work in some condominiums. Post, courier and all other logistic services struggle because of lockdown and it takes longer for them to deliver shipment.
In Ontario neighbor is not advised to visit another neighbor. Extra covid-19 test and 3 days hotel isolation is planned to be implemented for travellers arriving by air... But two days ago an article came to our attention. There was a study based on Toronto and Mississauga area which showed, that death rate from covid-19 during March – December 2020 was only 3 times bigger than from a common flu. Just 3 times, not 10 or 30 times. And lethality from common flu is quite low. Canada, Ontario are embedded in greatly inflated fear.
It is important to know: there are other countries, and they have quite different approach how too deal with covid-19. In Ukraine right now all businesses are open, people visit each other freely, all transport works properly. It is possible to leave country to Maldives, Egypt or Dubai and then come back freely without any quarantine. People are not scared, they work, rest, go shopping freely and enjoy life.
Sweden also mostly avoided lockdowns. And what happened to Sweden? Nothing, Swedes are just fine.
We hope that Canadian government, both federal and provincial, will take note of other countries experience and will start to remove restrictions now, gradually but surely. We think it is time now to remove restrictions and allow businesses to work properly, economy to recover, people to live life normally, without fear.
I've been in many countries, and it appears that in general, people in Canada are more scared than in many other places. TV news in Canada usually begin with negative info about crime: who was killed, shooting, road accidents and other scary stuff... If you watch Russian news, they emphasize positive events: something new and good is being build or becomes open, someone got some success, constructive work of government, positive cultural events... They do inform about incidents and crime, but those news are not major ones. And this is right. No need for media industry to intimidate citizens.
In Canada so often people hear: “Have a nice AND SAFE weekend...” In you say something like this in Poland, Belorussia or in Ukraine, people will raise their eyebrows – for them this way to talk about “safety” is abnormal. They do value safety there, but they don't get too excited about it... I was able to walk anywhere in Ukraine, Poland and Belorussia latest years, day or night, without any accidents, no-go zones are gone there. But in France and USA there are no-go zones infected with crime – usually with predominantly agressive Arab or Black population...
It is time to end atmosphere of abnormal, shameful, unnecessary fear in Canada. Time to lift restrictions, recover economy and normal life, improve media work and work of our government, encourage people to talk freely and without political correctness, to act courageously and constructive way.
