Leave it to Toronto Star, that Liberal Party of Canada bullhorn, to reveal one of their ideological comrades’ objectives: make anti-Covid vaccination mandatory.
Not only that: wearing face masks should be mandatory all over the place, too.
This, the self-centred Toronto Star editors say, is the only way how to stop (and prevent) lockdowns, while ending the Covid-19 pandemic, too.
The government must be dancing.
Toronto Star has a pretty rich and long history of viewing itself as the Voice From The Mount.
It was here, after all, where the idea of anointing Pierre Elliott Trudeau as intellectual genius and a statesman to end all statesmen (and women) began.
This place has been known for its star journalists thinking their job is to be the story, rather than covering stories and remaining in the background themselves.
This is where the idea of creating elder Trudeau’s heir was hatched and dropped on unsuspecting masses.
And, to be precise, this is the place that helped develop the image of their extended village as a metropolis to be reckoned with all over the world.
But the reality is simpler: Toronto is the place where cosmic physicians would be administering suppositories to the earth once they diagnose the need.
Toronto Star (TorStar in Canadian journalistic lingo) is the most magnanimous place, come to think of it. Here’s a couple of quotes: they “don’t mean physically restraining people and forcefully injecting them. After all, we don’t forcefully apply masks to people’s faces, we merely forbid them from forcing themselves upon us unmasked and unasked.
“We enforce mandatory masks by telling people that they can’t enter any public indoor space or workplace without wearing one. In fact, keeping out the unmasked is no different from forcing smokers to go outside, sparing us second-hand exposure.”
In the interest of perceived balance, TorStar asked the Ontario Human Rights Commission whether it would be kosher to force people to get injected. Whereupon Chief Commissioner Ena Chadha was more than happy to oblige thus: “Requiring proof of vaccination to ensure fitness to safely perform work, or protect people receiving services or living in congregate housing, may be permissible under the Code if the requirement is made in good faith and is reasonably necessary for reasons related to safety.”
Of course, the masses beg to differ.
TorStar commissioned a poll. Out of 29,891 votes, at the time of writing, here’s what the people said:
- No, whether I’m vaccinated or not should be my decision, not the government’s: 88.99 per cent (26,599 votes);
- Yes, several provinces already have vaccination requirements for school children, and this is a pressing matter of public health: 10.41 per cent (3,111 votes);
- Not sure: 0.42 per cent (126 votes);
- No opinion: 0.18 per cent (55 votes).
Of course, who cares about what people say? Those with the gall, chutzpah, even, not to rely on TorStar as their only source of information should be silenced, and kept muzzled till they recant.
Toronto Star, the rag that shows us by perfect example where Messianic complexes can take us, has proven once again how perfectly out of touch it has got.
