A Case of Hypocrisy, Irresponsibility, and Using Children in an “Orwellian Experiment”
A Brief Commentary by Carla Rienzo
Posted August 14th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
So, we have every level of government, Federal, Provincial and Municipal, rushing to get our teachers, support staff and children back to school while they, themselves, refuse to open their own doors!
Teachers, principals, janitors, cafeteria attendants, librarians and the very students they serve cannot attend meetings at Queen’s Park, Regional Council, City Council or conduct face to face business at Service Canada or Service Ontario yet we are to believe that it is safe to go back to school?
Are taxpayers nothing more than guinea pigs; an experiment that might succeed but if it doesn’t can result in any number of bizarre and lifetime illnesses or death??!!
We – all of us – need to be very, very concerned when those who dictate policy are not themselves willing to assume the same risks! These are Generals sending their soldiers to a battlefield that they themselves are terrified to fight!
And this is hypocrisy and irresponsibility at it’s very, very worst.
Unless and until they (all municipal, provincial and federal government offices) open their doors, I am of the opinion that no parent should use their child as part of this Orwellian experiment.
Love your children enough to say NO!!
