Manitoba Premier Slams Virus Skeptics, Urges Safety for Holidays
Brian Pallister, the premier of the Canadian province of Manitoba, pleaded with residents not to ignore science and avoid gathering over the holidays as coronavirus cases rise.
If you don’t think that Covid is real, right now, you’re an idiot — you need to understand that we’re all in this together. You cannot fail to understand this. Stay apart. So I’m the guy who has to tell you to stay apart at Christmas and in the holiday season you celebrate with your faith or without your faith, that you celebrate with — normally with friends and with family — that where you share memories and build memories. I’m that guy. And I’ll say that … … because it will keep you safe. I’m the guy who’s stealing Christmas to keep you safe because you need to do this now, you need to do the right thing because next year we’ll have lots to celebrate, and we’ll celebrate this year if we do the right thing this year. You don’t need like me. I hope in years to come you might respect me for having the guts to tell you the right thing, and here’s the right thing. Stay safe, protect each other, love each other, care for each other, you got so many ways to show that, but don’t get together this Christmas.
