Chief Public Health Officer Theresa Tam told MPs that the pandemic isn’t over and that Canada will face yet another wave of COVID, apparently the seventh, in the Fall.

“The pandemic is not over,” Tam said while speaking to MPs at the Commons health committee. “We think that it is very likely that we will get some more viral activity in the future, and we can’t predict exactly how big the next wave is, but I think we need to prepare.”

She also admitted that the two doses of COVID vaccine Canadians were coerced into getting out of fear of losing their job or ability to travel were almost completely ineffective at preventing infection from the Omicron variant. According to Tam, they only prove 20 per cent effective, though the real figure is much lower.

She then advocated for getting yet another ineffectual dose of the COVID vaccine. In other words, same old same old.

“Omicron was a game-changer — is a game-changer,” Tam said, catching herself.

Transport Minister Omar Alghabra also recently stated that the pandemic isn’t over and that Canadians shouldn’t bet on restrictions being lifted this Summer.

“So, one thing that I’ve learned is that if I bet against COVID, I always lose,” he said, laughing with the journalist asking him questions. “I don’t advise anyone to bet on [restrictions ending].”

These comments come after former NHL Player Ryan Whitney detailed the dreadful experiences in Canadian airports due to the Trudeau government’s anti-science travel requirements — which still entirely ban unvaccinated Canadians from getting on a plane — in a viral video.

According to Whitney, he landed in Toronto at roughly 3 p.m. on Sunday, spent three hours in line to get through customs, and was told his flight was cancelled.

“At this point now, I go and see that there’s about a 400-person line with about two Air Canada workers. There [were] a million cancelled flights, and everyone was just panicking,” he continues.

He then waited for almost six more hours in line before Air Canada closed shop and told him to go somewhere else.

His journey didn’t stop there, though. He was then forced to jump through even more hoops as staff scrambled to deal with delays caused by COVID restrictions. Whitney ultimately concluded that the Canadian airport was a “hellhole.”

Apparently, none of this concerns Alghabra, who has stayed steadfast in his hampering of the travel industry.
