British Columbia is currently facing a record of daily cases, 700 cases a day with confirmed deaths as well. We cannot keep letting that happen, we are currently in a lockdown but not much has changed in this “lockdown.” Domestic and international travel is still able to go on, and masks are only mandatory in indoor public and retail spaces. Covid-19 can be spread anywhere, easier in indoor crowded areas where air is not circulating as much as outside from fresh air but that does not mean Covid-19 cannot be spread outside. Masks must be made mandatory anywhere besides your own home, if masks are not able to be worn, face shields should be mandatory. 

Australia has shown a strong and strict lockdown that has lowered cases to almost zero. Their lockdown consisted of closing everything that weren’t essential areas. Schools were closed and moved online completely, people were made to stay home and have a curfew with road blocks ensuring that. Australians arriving from outside of the country were haven to apply to return to Australia and made quarantine in guarded government-run hotels. That has successfully dropped their high cases to near-zero, if Canada implemented similar, the result could be as well the same as Australia. 

There are still people that disregard Covid-19 restrictions and that is part of the problem within the cases, illegal big gatherings like parties are happening that do not promote mask wearing and social distancing. That is a big risk especially with the high number of people. Covid-19 will be spread vastly from big gatherings and can lead to an outbreak with deaths. 

Anti-maskers, I ask you to stop. Not wearing a mask when you are able and knowing of the risks does not help British Columbia whatsoever. What you are doing can and is harmful to everyone, wearing a mask helps others and yourself stay safe. Not wearing a mask makes people vulnerable to the sickness, whether you spread it or others spread it to you. You can breathe in a mask, healthcare workers have it much harder and stressful than you do and they can do it, so can you. If you don’t wear a mask, you are part of the problem. And please, don’t wear a mask as a chin accessory out in public, they are made to go over your nose and mouth. Not to mention, you could be committing murder by not wearing a mask, it is not hard so please do it and think of others and just not yourself. 

In this petition, I ask John Horgan, Bonnie Henry, and the government of British Columbia to enforce a stricter lockdown with new and enhanced Covid-19 restrictions. Citizens should only be able to go for essential reasons and stay at home as much as possible. Covid-19 is very prominent in Burnaby and Surrey so please, only make supermarkets, gas stations, and hospitals, etc stay open. What is a human need must stay open to the public. By not doing better, you are risking the citizens and public and losing lives. Please do a better job and enhance Covid-19 restrictions and make a STRICTER lockdown.
