(Re: Midland Today story 'Orchestratred' maskless group upset apple cart at Midland store)

These protestors believe they have a right to jeopardize the health and welfare of other citizens which is beyond inconsiderate.

The problem with this nonsense protest is that our country allows everyone with a self-promoting cause to affect the rest of us no matter the long-term consequences.

Loblaw's management failed their customers by not stopping these people from entering the store unmasked as a medical mask exemption (if it was actually true or another lie to promote their agenda) does not allow the exempt person to affect of infect other people as there are shopping services to assist those that cannot wear a mask in public .

Face shields can be worn by exempt persons to protect the rest of the public.

Loblaw's management should be subject to a lawsuit for not protecting their customers. According to the current business opening legislature, it may be the only way to make these businesses develop a backbone and protect their customers.

The police appear to be afraid of exercising the statutes of the law on behalf of the shopping public.

Unless you have experienced or seen first hand the devastation this virus causes, then complacency seems to be the climate of the day prior to a possible overwhelming third wave even if we have the vaccine.

Blood clots, stroke, lasting complications, brain fog and death are just some of the effects of this virus.

Shame on these attention seekers.
