  1. Dr. Roger @ City of Edmonton Community Meeting

    This is being taken down everywhere. You can download it here:

    Entire City of Edmonton Community and Public Services Committee Meeting:
    The masks and covid discussion begins around 4:18.


  2. Just the thing we need rn, lunatic narsacists gathering in large crowds with a virus going on majority of which result in thousands of dollars in property damage because of looting, meanwhile thosands of peoples jobs are lost and people cane even go to a funeral

  3. Nbc and its ridiculous headlines is trash.

  4. When will NBC be forced this video?

  5. …… If they are willing to sacrifice then go ahead…. Don't make everyone do that with u! Selfish I honestly don't get it ?

  6. Pandamic…. we have to take a test to see if we actually have covid… really?.. back in the days when the “black fever” was here 25mil or 1/3 of world population died this is an actual pandamic they would laugh at us if they could see us now

  7. JESUS LOVES YOU. come back. 💙

  8. What racist problem in US? What a bunch of none sense? I am not white. I am feel so lucky to live in US…..

  9. Odd.. The virus does not affect protesters?

  10. I’m so done with these people, why can’t we just leave them alone?!? If you still care about them, then try to convince them in a way. Works or not, I don’t care no more. It’s not my country anyways. I really wanna help but you guys are helpless.

  11. How about I state an idea. We let all the smart people who are willing to stay home avoid those who are self centred. They could do whatever they want for now, but I’m sure they will regret. If they happen to get it then I’m not sure. Let’s not waste our efforts on them already. If you really want them to be negative then please encourage your kids or adults how stupid their thinking is. Think of Spanish flu, but with this generation thinking they are so smart. Wisdom doesn’t mean smart, just means that you were stupid once but now you gotta change that around.

  12. What I love about protests during a pandemic….eventually….less people on the planet if you think about it.

  13. I guess COVID-19 safety guidelines don't apply when protesting over a black man dying in police custody. Hypocrites, the lot of 'em.

    corona [kŏ-ro´nah] (pl. coro´nae, coronas) (L.) crown; in anatomic nomenclature, an eminence or encircling structure that resembles a crown.

  15. Why? Why now? You can protest any time you want, just, why now during a global pandemic? You care about police brutality right? Well, you wouldn’t have to worry about police brutality if you stayed and quarantined at home

  16. Covid 19:Yoo,did someone said PARTY?

  17. Why can’t hey do protest online like

    We have technology

  18. Of course if anyone criticizes these protests because they're concerned about COVID-19 being spread because a. the people at the protests are not social distancing and b.a lot of them are not wearing masks, they'll get a accused of being a racist bigot who hates black people and who is OK with police brutality. facepalm

  19. As long as the stupidity remains in Portland, Oregon will be Okay. The idiots killing each other, problems will take care of themselves. Seems the best time to riot and “ peaceful protest”, and loot, without committing suicide would have been after the Carona is over. But, no these protesters are proving that Carona might be a myth. We can Riot, loot, destroy, but can’t go to school or church in small groups? Or have weddings or social gatherings of 10 or more.

  20. When people victimize innocent people and property, it is not a protest. It's a riot. This is not a reasonable effort to effect change. It has become an excuse to vent aggression and to victimize others. It's no longer about social justice. It has become an attempt to blindly and unjustly seize power in order to hurt innocent people. I can no longer support this movement.

  21. Want a change? Change yourself.

  22. Plandemic during an election what an coincidence.

  23. Ill blame the rise in coronavirus on these people

  24. It's not a pandemic, it's a scamdemic.
    Normal flu-like virus hyped up and lied about to replace Islam as the terror boogeyman to keep the world paranoid. If governments care so much about the well-being of citizens why do they spend so much money and effort building weapons and creating wars? All this globalist hype is designed to crash the world economy and tear down nations, so they can build their one-world order.

  25. Revelation 14:7, "Fear God and give glory to Him for the hour of His judgment has come!" Proverbs 8:13, " The fear of the LORD [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate." Ephesians 4:29, "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers." Proverbs 6:16-19,"These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." Ephesians 4:26, "Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:" Luke 10:27, "And He answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." John 14:15, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." Psalm 97:10, "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked." Matthew 5:44, "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" Revelation 21:8, "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]." Psalm 145:20, "The LORD preserveth all them that love Him: but all the wicked will He destroy." 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power;" Isaiah to Malachi in the O/T is about these end times. Revelation 18-22. May God bless and keep you always!

  26. To the rioters; Your actions are the problem . Take responsibility for your self The world owes you nothing ! Remember You Live in a left wing run city You more than likely voted for what you now protest !

  27. I wonder why the numbers are going up…

  28. What will you expect from people and a nation that voted an identical thinking muppet for president?! So i think they have earned to go down :-/

  29. And today we are seeing huge spikes in numbers what a surprise. And you have some news outlets saying that experts are saying that it's not the protests. It's everything with huge social gathering period!

  30. and now there are a spike and surge, who can't see this stupid narrative they keep playing

  31. When people find out the virus is not real, they are going to lose thier minds. For some it will take FEMA pulling out the gilloutines before they chose to wake up to the truth. People love lies as there is no truth in them. End of this world… nothing new.

  32. Any WONDER why we are seeing a Covid spike now…3 weeks later. Dummies,…went back home after their protest and passed it around like candy on Halloween

  33. .2% death rate, how is this a pandemic? Oh I forgot, fake news.
