There are 27 members in total on the Ontario Covid-19 Science Advisory Table and 19 of them are either employed (in some capacity) at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health (part of University of Toronto) or they’re attached to U of T directly.

The letter says that “school closures create significant harms” and that “this deterioration is now evident in the form of increased ambulatory care use and hospital admissions, most poignantly for children and youth with eating disorders and that “schools can reopen safely on a regional basis.” This didn’t stop the prominent member of the Science Table from speaking out against the letter however – and it has some asking whether David Fisman has been sidelined from the Ontario Science Table.

All-cause deaths for 2020 for all age groups in Canada = 303,350

“You have Costco that can be open and a lot of people use Costco — but they cannot go to their local store. So it’s unfair it is unjust and it’s killing the economy — it’s killing the small business,” said Bernier.
In the best-case scenario that the CDC presents masking is only effective at reducing mortality and case growth by 1.8 percent. All of the harm done to children over mandatory masking for 1.8% – at absolute best! All the headaches and lack of personal connection with one another over 1.8%.
Baber confronted Elliott last Thursday during question period after a report came out in The Star that lyes out the impact of lockdowns during the pandemic to be far more tragic than originally thought.
Karahalios took shots at the Ford government Thursday for seeking to extend emergency powers for an additional 7 months the same day it announced its reopening plan.

The NDPs Peggy Sattler of London West railed against the Premier and his government for seeking an extension to the emergency measures. Sattler said, “there is no possible justification for this one-year extension on the emergency orders unless it is to continue the attack on worker rights that we have seen repeatedly taken by this government since it was elected in 2018.”
