The Canadian Government has issued tender notices for the construction of “isolation” camps in every province and territory in Canada. This should be deeply troubling, not just because of the millions who were exterminated in Russian Gulags, or Nazi Concentration camps – but because the Government refuses to answer any questions about whom the camps are meant for. On October 8th in the legislative assembly of Ontario, Randy Hillier tried to ask why we’re building camps, and who they’re meant for. In addition to camps, the Government is also ordering 36,000 units of tear gas which indicates its preparing for mass civil unrest.
The Premier has been actively dodging my questions since July. Today was just another example of the new status quo in Queen’s Park, no response. After this exchange I’m not even sure if the Premier and his Cabinet know what’s going on regarding the Federal government considering the expansion of isolation/quarantine facilities from coast to coast.
The language in the RFI is overly broad and ambiguous, and we ought to have clarification on the purpose of these isolation/quarantine facilities. I asked clear and precise questions about the Federal government’s tendering for “isolation/quarantine camps” in Ontario. Where will they be, how many will there be, and how many people will be housed?
The Government House Leader suggests these are for “international travellers”, however the RFP says “public health and other related federal requirements associated with the COVID-19 pandemic response.” My question on the purpose was cut short and once again the government refused to give an answer. Why won’t they answer? It seems to me they aren’t even aware of these proposals.
