    The fact that this was politicized at all is so annoying. On both sides. I've seen comments on other boards talking about how they still wear masks outside because they don't want people to think they are conservative. Makes no sense to me! Same with people following protocols or getting the vaccine being called sheep.

    I wonder if the Spanish Flu would have been like this if there was social media? Or maybe it was like this and we just aren't aware, haha.

    I've said it a million times.. social media is ruining the world. There's a huge numbers of Canadians who don't seem to know what country they live in and get so wrapped up in US politics that they start to think that's how things work here in Canada. It's an easy trap to fall into if you spend a significant amount of your time looking at social media feeds that shovel you endless amounts of whatever shit you engage with. It's a recipe for disaster.

    Is that the conservative position that the liberals told you about or just the ones that you want to parrot?
    It is not the CPC position.
    I think it's a persons right to choose but if they want to come around me they better have the the shot or have just taken a rapid test and me covid free

    Not every conservative is an anti-vaccer but every anti-vaccer is a conservative. I think that's how it goes.
