4.6 million graphene-based masks got distributed, which Health Canada have banned due to the potential for asbestos-like harms.
Given how little threat COVID poses to schoolkids - about 20 deaths/million infections in the 0-18 age range - it would not be surprising at all if more eventually die from wearing these masks than from covid itself.
@pete My nephew and nieces had to wear those. I'm sick of living in this place.
@verretor It'll be interesting to see if anyone sues the schools over this.
I won't be surprised if they get civil immunity due to it being an "emergency".
@pete I know there's a group of entrepreneur suing Quebec government and so far, it's not working because the government is "trying to do good" or something along those lines.
@verretor This stuff is so ridiculous that if a future government decided to ignore the "Nulla poena sine lege praevia" principal - the prohibition of retroactive punishments for laws that didn't exist at the time - to go after these criminals, honestly, I'd find it hard to care.
Just wait for the mass vaccination of children.
I expect that's where a lot of people will draw the line though.
@pete dangerous idiots.
Are masks mandatory in canada at any age?
In italy only over 6 years old
@mir_btc Yup, mandatory in schools and pretty much anywhere inside. Students were forced to wear those masks. In fact, they were shedding so many particles that they were _causing_ wearers to cough; Health Canada didn't take the initiative on this.
@pete The Quebec government will blame the users for wearing the masks and not doing their own research. It is the way.
@pete Have a close look at the inside of a mask with a microscope. Warning... you WILL have nightmares!
