FORD IS GUTLESS
Doug Ford’s gutless timidity in this pandemic is endangering our economy and making cowards of Canadians. The reported number of deaths is obviously skewed as a recent victim was over 100 years old. Let’s quit the fear-mongering, isolate the elderly and vulnerable, restore normalcy and stop the constant testing. A positive result might just indicate that you are immune. And if you have fallen for the claim that there is no immunity, then why is there a mad rush to develop a vaccine?

BORROWING FOR THE FUTURE
Re “67% worry about Trudeau leading Canada into growing deficit: Poll” (Postmedia Network, Oct.13): Day after day, Prime Minister Trudeau is behind a microphone, announcing that the government will spend some huge amount of money on a new COVID-related program. No doubt many of these programs are necessary to help Canadians cope with the pandemic. But instead of simply announcing, “Today the Liberal government will provide $100 million to a program for …,” an announcement beginning with “Today your children and grandchildren borrowed $100 million to create a program for …” would provide some sobering context.
(That would be far too honest)
JOY OF THE GAME
Re “Hockey, Italian style!” (Lance Hornby, Oct. 15): Ahhhh the memories. After Sunday morning Mass, we head out to George Bell Arena where my boyfriend (later my husband) Johnny Scholes (who always wanted to be Italian) and my brother Jay Pillo played their hearts out and we cheered like crazy. It was so much fun and this brought back so many pleasant memories. And if I remember correctly, John D’Amico refed. Thank you, Toronto Sun.
