I have been delaying commenting on these so-called freedom convoys and drivers that display Canadian flags, but with May 8 coming up – victory in Europe day, and also my birthday – I couldn’t delay anymore.
I was born in Coventry, UK in 1942.
I remember well the damage done to Coventry on Nov. 14, 1940 as the city was razed to the ground. I remember relatives not returning from overseas, of ration books until the 1950s, and the suffering my parents endured just surviving.
So now we have a minority of citizens who are boasting they are not vaccinated, prepared to infect others, and claiming freedom. From what?
When Jonas Salk invented the polio vaccine in 1953, I don’t remember too many protests.
Tuberculosis was virtually eliminated – no protests. But now these misguided folk want freedom.
Tell me, what is freedom?
Maybe ask Hitler, Mussolini and Putin. They know all about freedom.
