At a Ford Government livestream, Dr. Yaffi put forward three predictions about a second wave.
Diverge Columnist, Greg Staley combats those predictions saying:
“Mr. Ford wants Ontarians to focus only on prediction 1 – then he wants you to forget its not based in hard facts but is a modelling prediction.
Forget the other two possibilities, Premier Ford cares so much about our safety that even though the models used predict two other possible outcomes, he is willing to completely ignore that data for your safety.
Why is it that Ford and governments all around the world keep pointing to models?
Is it possible they point to models precisely because they aren’t accurate?
Is it possible that they prefer models to real data because models allow them to fear-monger the masses?
