Exactly!
This has happened to me on the street, in stores and even at work where they should know better.
I find myself getting angry at these types of people and will actually tell them to get six feet away from me
If I am unable to go anywhere. I am often not even polite to them anymore.


Then I have had the same ones pull up their fake documents on their phones to "Prove" that they don't have to abide by the rules.

Who is "forcing" you off the sidewalk? If you don't feel safe passing by another person on a sidewalk, step aside. Very simple thing to do. Alternatively, you could lobby your MLA to impose strict 'sidewalk rules'. Just because you have a fear of something, doesn't mean that the other person is "intimidating" you by doing that.


It is exactly this type of arrogant, asinine opinion that perfectly illustrates the problem.

I am forced to step off the sidewalk for my own safety because these people refuse to follow the rules currently in place and obviously have no basic manners.

That said, the majority of people I encounter are very polite. They maintain the 6ft rule and will step aside and wait to pass through areas which are too small to do so.

If you don't believe what I am saying, take a walk along the boardwalk in front of The Grand.

Wearing a cloth mask is not useless. Let me direct you to this website I found by using google. There are a lot of sites that explain the benificial use of cloth masks but I chose just one for simplicity for you. Also it is published by the CDC which is a reputable organization. The article is called "
Scientific Brief: Community Use of Cloth Masks to Control the Spread of SARS-CoV-2"

If you click on the link it should open for you.

Who are the "same ones"? You mean Lore's "these type of people" ? You've got to stop talking in riddles if you want to have any meaningful debate.

Seriously, are you saying that someone was presenting you with some documents(??), and presumably after some sort of an investigation, you have determined that they were fake? Are you an RCMP, CSIS? Do you realize how ridiculous this sounds?

Care to explain, how are unmasked people "getting in your face"? Are you referring to these protestors?


There was a reporter who covered one of the Kelowna protests and indeed the protesters were getting in his face. Maybe you will believe this example as you are not taking anyones word for it on this forum https://www.pentictonherald.ca/news/art ... cbe3e.html

Here are some more examples I found by using the well known search engine google

Here a protester did not believe in free speech for the counter protester as he slapped the megaphone from the other protester's face and police had to intervene

https://www.kelownacapnews.com/news/ten ... on-rally/#

Here is another example but the forum has censored the address to *bleep* so use the link just type in kelowna now dot com with no spaces instead. Or you can google search the title VIDEO: Kelowna businesses confronted with protest

https://www.*bleep*.com/watercooler/ ... h_protest/

And another

https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/3 ... ay-s-rally

Here is a special news article. It is special because Dr. Henry states the protesters are putting the community at risk. Also there were protest signs saying no masks required and hugs allowed

https://globalnews.ca/news/7306224/rall ... n-kelowna/

These are just the items that made the news. Imagine what else could be happening.

Google can be a great research tool if you use common sense with your search words and selection of material. I can reccomend you strive to find use in reputable sources and avoid things like mother nature news etc. Definitely recommend you start taking advantage of google. It can answer many of your questions easily so you do not feel the need to ask on public forums. One great thing about google is it is totally free! And just about anyone can figure it out, it is very user friendly! Super!

If you want me to keep searching google on your behalf, I do not mind and would be happy to pm you my paypal email so you can reimburse me for my time.

LOL, funny how I know exactly what gardengirl is talking about. I am not talking in riddles at all. You are just pretending to not understand what I am saying. By any chance were you at the protest?

If you were a reporter, and went to a protest to report on it, just to find out the protesters were not following rules, the exact ones they were protesting about, then you've better find another job. That's dumb reporting.

Untrue. Here a psychotherapist discusses it:

Here is a link to CTV news clip about it

https://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/video?clipId=2085305

And in case you wanted something more local, this quote "COVID-19 deniers and skeptics have been meeting in the city's Stuart Park every weekend for months" and here is a link https://www.google.ca/amp/s/beta.ctvnew ... 05402.html

It still answers your question. You're welcome.

And the reporter is answering the kinds of questions you have been asking, isn't he?

Nobody felt motivated to address my question about anti maskers and freedoms, but I did come across this article during my google searches for some of you. It discusses some psychology behind anti maskers

Meh, they're just toddlers trapped inside a grown-ups body. Stomping their feet because their mom told them "no" and be all pouty-pouty until they get their way. Always convincing themselves that they think they know better than Mom or Dad.
