The provincial government’s call to stop International students from entering the province is xenophobic and racist. International students are not driving the third wave of the pandemic. Instead, it is the poor policies and choices made by the Ontario government.
The Ontario government’s refusal and failure to institute adequate paid sicks days, ignoring of important recommendations from the Ontario science table, a confusing and mismanaged provincial vaccine roll out, political interference with priority hotspots, the ensuing vaccine postal code bingo and the disastrous handling of outbreaks in long-term care homes are the reasons as to what is driving this pandemic and resulting in unnecessary deaths. International students entering the country follow strict testing before and upon entry, along with quarantine protocol.
