    Dr. Tam has referred to public health as a team event which has let to tragic delays and confusion. She and her deputy owe their allegiance to and take their direction from the 12,000 member private organization, the IDSA. Canada agreed to support and follow the lead of the highly conflicted CDC which is now:

    It’s time medicine got back to its scientific roots and away from dogma and Canada developed and followed its own policies.

    We used to hear of aerosols in TV commercial talking about clean air and an aerosol cleaner ie a fabric cleaner or an airspray. I just heard TTC uses one to cleanse buses and it works several hours to protect surfaces people are using. With this info are they’re not air cleansers to purchase like the TTC where people are forced to gather ie waiting lines. In some ways this info is not new. Where are your recommendations to clear the air so to speak, no pun intended.

    Great article Paleah.
    I appreciate your last points about Indigenous and rural communities’ air quality and how some communities are affected differently.
