At the beginning of September, Dr. Theresa Tam, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, predicted that Canada could see 15,000 COVID cases daily by October if vaccinations do not increase. As of October 1st, Canada’s daily case count was 4,410. Dr. Tam did her job.
How did Dr. Tam do her job if her prediction was wrong? Her predictions do not matter in terms of accuracy. No one will hold her accountable for her numbers being inaccurate. Her predictions matter in terms of keeping the fear going. Her alarmist predictions scare the particles out of people. A frightened public is easy to control, and you can get them to do silly things such as wearing double masks and taking vaccines that do not work.
There is a problem with the government using Dr. Tam’s alarmist predictions to justify lockdowns, business closures, and other unconstitutional restrictions. This problem will disappear as more of us wake up and practice civil disobedience. But, I am not holding my breath.
