  1. @trevor. The person was never an anti-vaxxer. Thats just straight racism or ridiculous politicization of the issue. The person was “anti-white” or “anti-uwp” I guess.

  2. @COmmon sense…siimply using the proper tense solves your issue. ..The person WAS an anti-vaccer…he/she changed their approach to the vaccine when the WHITE man was gone….That is all

  3. Nigel Matthews were you or would you be singing that same tune when or if the other party was in power. I heard an anti vaxer just yesterday said he just took his second shot and when someone quizzed him, he responded he would never take the vaccine under a white man.

  4. Schools need to open for the children. No lockdowns/shutdown and keep the economy open. We need to take personal responsibility for our health/safety, consult with medical experts and learn to safely coexists with the virus.

  5. I hope the numbers decrease so that the children can have a safe term at school. Hope everyone obey the protocols and keep safe. Avoid large crowds or gatherings.
