Man refuses to wear a mask at Tim Horton’s

A customer captured on video a scene Saturday afternoon when a man refused to wear a mask inside a Tim Horton’s in Villeray, and workers called police. He’s been charged with obstructing police after refusing to leave peacefully on their request.

In general people here are supporting the mask law, but some doofs in the Beauce held a demonstration against it on Saturday. Evidently they don’t read the world news: we’ve had the largest single-day increase in Covid cases now, worldwide. Have they already forgotten how fast the virus spread from China to Iran to Italy and the whole world? The United States is seeing scary numbers, and they’re on our doorstep. We have evidence that, by taking a few simple measures, we’re keeping it at bay: this is no time to announce “the pandemic is over” because of what pandemic means: an epidemic of an infectious disease that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents or worldwide, affecting a substantial number of people.
