The Ontario COVID Lockdown: Inanity Holds Sway with the Dog Walker Stupidity

There are many of you out there that express an opinion Ontario’s lockdown is ineffective or causing such high collateral damage it simply is not worth it. The bottom line is that medical systems can’t handle the load of the infected or soon will not be able to. Is it fair to say poor medical system management and cost saving measures in countries that have socialized medicine have lead to the dire situation we are approaching? Yet I have not heard a single story in the media discussing this.

Yet the politico-medico elite seems to prefer the shaming approach that it is our fault we didn’t socially distance, wash our hands or wear masks yet some of this elite double dealt us by taking vacations this winter.

Despite your anger, frustration and fear perhaps take a moment for a chuckle when you hear that dog walking and doggie daycare is considered nonessential and prohibited. Wasn’t it Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau that said it was no business of the state in the bedrooms of the nation. The politicos have been messing with many of us causing job loss, destruction of businesses to name a few. Now they prohibit you from using the service of a dog walker and doggie daycare! So it makes sense to have twenty people walk their dogs and be out on the street instead of a single dogwalker or to force dog owners to walk their own dogs as they try to work from home and struggle with home schooling. And what are essential workers to do if they have no one to walk or care for their dogs?

If this pea brained strategy makes you angry blow off some steam. It might even mean your pooch is cooped up all day long without being able to relieve itself as you can’t leave work to take Fido on a walk. Or you might just see how inane the situation is and have a hearty laugh! I mean it is so intrusive the politicians might as well be in our bedrooms but that may be forthcoming in the next emergency order.

Dog walkers beware the COVID police are looking for you. Can the dogs be fined too! I am sure their owners can be.
