The last-minute announcement by the Ontario government to return to a modified Step Two of the reopening plan has left many parents and business owners baffled by the sudden decision and frustrated by the mixed messages amid the Omicron-fuelled fourth wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week, the chief medical officer of health, Dr. Kieran Moore, said he saw no reason to make changes to the student’s planned return to classes, until Premier Doug Ford’s announcement on Monday that revealed the province would move to online learning until at least Jan. 17.
Postmedia columnist Anthony Furey discusses the politics of the pandemic in Ontario, and the frustrations around feelings of being “back to square one.”

It is not about SAFETY it's about CONTROL
If the governments didn't cut the health care budgets for decades this would not be happening
The government can VAC CIN A TED the planet but they can't feed the STAR V ING
It is not about SAF E TY it's about CON T ROL
PUT MANDATORY VAXX CERTIFICATE FOR LCBO, BEER STORE AND CANNABIS STORES.
OVERDOSES OF CANNABIS AND ALCOHOL BECAUSE THE CONVID MONEY PAID TO THE WRONG PERSONS .
Doug's government is terrible, but so is Global News.
Don't fall for the cult hypnosis. They want you to live a lie and invalidate your own integrity and intuition. You can not comply your way out of Tyranny.
The hill needs to bur🔥
Where are all the freedom fighters? 🔥 let’s go
Did you see Doug Pontiac's lips they have Trudeau juice all over them.
Communist Canada. It’s an embarrassment.
At least the vid title is honest… it's a massive (needless) step backwards, and it's all about the politics, not health.
Love how Trudeau doesn't get any of the blame for this when this is the 3rd variant being the 3rd national security failure on his plate.
These lockdowns are causing more harm than good for the well-being and mental health of our children.
Something your Government continues to ignore.
Also the split society you have created with discriminatory mandates have caused more harm to Ontario.
You say hospitals are overwhelmed but instead of hiring more staff you have suspended or fired front-line workers who asserted their bodily autonomy, while thousands of others are stuck at home because of isolation protocols.
According to the latest figures, only 123 patients in all of Ontario are now in the ICUs with COVID-19.
This is just unnecessary panic and fearmongering.
This needs to stop. We will not forget these things come the next election.
HES ALWAYS TO LATE !
I don’t see healthy people dying of flu.
We can thank the filthy jabbed lab rats for this.
Canadian politicians need to watch what's happening in Europe, in Bulgaria they tried to storm parliament because they have had enough, do they really believe it can't happen here? This is becoming tyrannical. This is exactly what the Feds want: to use Covid to turn people against the preimers so Trudeau can invoke The Emergency Act.
Drag the politicians out into the street. People are tired of it. Here in the US I will be voting against any politician pushing more Covid restrictions
Seems like a set up for the coming unvaccinated tax?
I got my 2 shots no reason to have anything closed this is ridiculous. Schools should not be closed. Really pathetic leadership by Ford and those complete morons surrounding him.
Here is some data that Canadian news won't share with us. Doug Ford started a label company called Delta Label's many years before the Delta variant was released upon us, Delta Labels grosses 100 million annually. Renata Ford, Rob Ford's widow, launched a $16.25 million lawsuit against Doug and Randy Ford after Rob passed. Delta has a contract to make the Decals that we see on supermarket floors saying "keep 3 meters distance, masks must be worn to enter" etc. in hospitals too. How would Ford know about the Delta Variant a than two years before it hit us and why doesn't he speak up about this company and isn't this a conflict of interest?
