Group calling for more Covid restrictions in BC

A group of independent health-care workers in British Columbia are calling for a three-week “circuit breaker” to combat rising Covid numbers.

CTV News reported:

‘On Monday, Dr. Lyne Filiatrault, a retired emergency physician who spent years at Vancouver General Hospital, and is part of the group, told CTV News the province has been entirely reactive in its policies since the first wave of the pandemic, and that needs to change because of Omicron’s infectiousness.’

Many Canadians are opposed to increased Covid restrictions, calling them authoritarian and a breach of civil liberties. Some have went as far as protesting hospitals or the homes of politicians.
