In answer to Ms. King’s response to my letter, I stand by my opinions.
Anyone can find all sorts of “scientific evidence” to support their irresponsible “anti vax” beliefs and socially irresponsible actions. The evidence across Canada, the U.S. and the world is stark. The refusal of a certain fringe element has contributed to the rampant spread of Covid 19 and the deaths of millions – yes millions – not to mention the economic and social damage inflicted.
I would suggest Ms. King go take a walk through our local cemeteries and examine the tombstones for the lives lost in the past to childhood scourges like pertussis, typhoid, diphtheria, small pox, measles, polio, TB and a host of other diseases that plagued us before “Science” found the answers.
Refusing to act in a manner that protects oneself, one’s family, and one’s community is irresponsible. If the isolation precautions that “Science” has been pushing since late 2020 had been followed, the pandemic would likely now be over.
Stupid definitions that apply to the actions undertaken in this and other recent protests of their ilk: “acting in an unintelligent or careless manner. c : lacking intelligence or reason.”
Stupidity costs lives.
