    Kids Are Not Allowed Talk To Each Other During Lunch In Schools

    Alex Pierson questions a new protocol being used across Ontario where children are not allowed to speak to each other during lunch. They have to wear their masks, raise their hand if they need help opening the lunches, and cannot speak while eating, and have to put their mask on right after they finish. Alex talk about why she finds this treatment unacceptable, and damaging to children, and why we need to seriously re-examine the mask mandate.

Really!?

I really enjoy your point of view on nearly everything. However, the language regarding people who are choosing to wait to get a shot for trials to complete or who feel they simply aren’t at risk and therefore don’t need it, is really disappointing. Saying people don’t deserve a normal way of life based on medical choices is wrong. Full stop! I’m out alex 👎🏻

Blame game

I started listening to this show at the beginning of the summer. However, the episode in which she called people who want to wait and see the long-term effects of the vaccines «Karens» put a bad taste in my mouth. Alex actually helped create the hesitancy by inviting a Guelph Uni scientist on her show to explain that they needed further study. Then, she actually had the gall to insult the very ppl who listened to him before making their decisions. Her reaction just shows that she, too, is not unbiased and is completely incoherent in her reasoning.
