If we love democracy
... why are we cowering at home?
There are worse things than the flu (by any other name), and a Nova Scotian has graphically demonstrated that!
One man has clearly had enough. He's apparently completely lost his marbles and killed a lot of his neighbours. Too much time to listen to his own angry thoughts?

Humans are social animals. Keep them sequestered for long enough and bad things happen.
The pressures of job loss, for instance, will exacerbate domestic quarrels, some with violence, and therefore emotional damage to children.
Some people should never be left with nothing but their own company.
Some others try to use their time productively; such as John Hill, an American commenter to another CBC article:
CBC: Some business owners fear being left behind, as talk shifts to reopening the economy
John very wisely says:
If you want to stay home, stay home.
If you want to wear a mask, wear a mask.
If you want to avoid large crowds, avoid large crowds.
I am not required to descend into poverty for you.
I am not required to abstain from human contact for you.
I am not required to shop alone, without my kids, for you.
I refuse to participate in "quarantine life" until there's an unsafe, untested vaccine released in eighteen months. I refuse to receive said vaccine to make others feel more safe. I won't set myself--or my children--on fire to keep you warm. If you're convinced the vaccine is safe and effective, you can get it yourself.
Some of you are allowing fear and policies devoid of scientifically accurate data to destroy America and ruin your life. I can't control your self-destructive behaviors, but we all have a say in America.
[YYC: Ostensibly in Canada as well.]
We need to tell legislators that we demand options. We have a constitutional right to take risks. Life is full of bacteria and viruses--many of which spread before symptoms manifest and after they subside. We have a right to receive OR refuse vaccines.
The data was inaccurate at best; purposely overblown to justify government overreach at worst. Stop allowing the government to destroy:
The Food Supply
Access to Healthcare
"When the 'new normal' is filled with starvation, depression, suicide, imprisonment, governmental spying, and pure DESPERATION, the virus is going to look preferable to the world you helped facilitate” author unknown
YYC says Amen.
The consequences of social isolation are only just beginning. If you'd like to know more about its effects, there is a plethora of articles online that you can read.
Interestingly, The Atlantic has an article headlined: The Virtues of Isolation
The key word there, of course, is "choosing".
Does anybody recall voting for self-isolation?
No, I think we all voted for what we hoped would be a "good life" and that necessitates "freedom".
Hands up all who want FREEDOM.
