Ontario Lockdown Will Shutter More Local Businesses, While Allowing Big Box Stores To Remain Open Yet Again

The big box stores are disproportionately owned by large global corporations, while small locally-owned businesses get shut down.

Ontario is already in a lockdown.

But apparently, it’s not enough of a lockdown according to those in charge.

So they’re adding to the lockdown, making it even stricter.

Notice how when cases go down, it’s spun as ‘because of lockdowns’, but when cases go up, it’s because the current lockdowns aren’t ‘tough enough.’

Now, this new lockdown – which was apparently going to take effect on Christmas Eve until that generate a backlash, will now go into force on December 26th, boxing day.

And it just so happens that the new lockdown – which shutters all non-essential businesses across the province, and broadens the category of businesses deemed ‘non-essential,’ will spare big box stores.

What this means is that thousands of shoppers will stream into big box stores on a huge shopping day, while small business are blocked from taking part.

Have to protect those massive corporate profits, right?

Also, you may have heard that there have been over 400 cases at Amazon fulfillment centres in Ontario:

“There are hundreds of virus cases at Amazon warehouses in Ontario, but that global mega corporation has of course not been locked down by the politicians. Only your local store is being ruined. But they’re ‘following the science,’ right?”

Now, I’m not saying Amazon should be locked down either, but it is disgusting that the rules don’t apply equally.

If Amazon isn’t being locked down by the Ontario government, then local businesses sure as hell shouldn’t be locked down either.

This continues to get more and more absurd, as politicians are destroying local communities while global mega corps become are getting richer than ever.

Any politician supporting this should be ashamed of themselves, and should resign in disgrace at the hypocrisy they’re showing and the damage they are doing while serving big corporations instead of their actual constituents.

You’d think by now Ford would catch on that lockdowns aren’t working. They didn’t work months ago and they won’t work now. Why is he not understanding this?

Even if you do not have CCPvirus, you feel like your their victim and very sick. Even the schools are being shut down again although 82% have only one case or less? Northern Ontario schools will re open first, as there has been no reported cases? Then again we know the numbers have been skewed from the start, dying with cancer that you have been fighting for years and your automatically a plandemic case etc. But let us cover up the big rise in the carbon tax, and yet a couple more lieberal bills (new assisted suicide bill and freedom… Read more »

Just received an email from Doug Ford, he is wanting Ontarian s to support him on going after the Fed. Lieberals about really closing the borders and all the International flights with tens of thousands of people arriving here with no testing or quarantining and traveling all over the country bringing more CCPvirus and the new strain which is more contagious may be here now or arriving. He has said he will do whatever it takes to protect us. I sure agree with the borders being closed so signed up to support him.

Yep…….Ford showing he is no different than the stupid Lie berals in this regard. Gotta protect the income streams of the big “non-essential” Corporations that have more political clout than the little small businesses trying to eke out a living and actually serving their communities on a local basis. Happens every time. Disgusting!
