We can't ignore the behavior of a few but it is healthy to observe the bigger scene and social message.
Interesting perspective from Postmedia.
"The protests “broke the spell” of COVID and forced scenes of unmasked mirth onto the capital. “One thing to note is that the mask mandate in Ottawa is basically dead this weekend,” observed broadcaster Andrew Lawton. “Virtually no masks worn in hotels, food places and stores, and staff have either given up trying to enforce or don't actually care.” And after two years of authorities strenuously forbidding any public gathering or celebration, fireworks once again flew over the nation’s capital.
Thanks to the National Post for the article and photo.
As much as I appreciate the right to protest, it can not come at the price of others. Stand on a soapbox, yell and scream. Sit outside Parliament if you desire but do not interfere in the rights of others.
