NO! To Masks in Schools
#201The height of the absurd arbitrary rules flying around is beyond ludicrous.
Let children return to somewhat normal activities.
Cindy Szvetecz (North bay , 2020-07-31)
#202It is child abuse!!very unhealthy of mind body and spirit ..esp forchildren
Barbara Andrews (Collingwood, 2020-07-31)
#204Masks affect our health and our mental well being.
Nancy Johnston (Lindsay, 2020-07-31)
#206Children are not catching corona and they aren't spreading it. Look at the science, it is worse for their health to mask them!
Amanda Gillelan (Cambridge , 2020-07-31)
#210The severity & death rate of this virus does not warrant any healthy people wearing masks, and I do not want my government or anyone mandating what I put on or in my body - or that of my children.
Beth Smith (Collingwood , 2020-07-31)
#211My child matters...and I am concerned about the health risk of wearing a mask for such a long time five days.
Stacy Ramkarran (Toronto , 2020-07-31)
#220I do not want my kids to have to wear masks.
Sheauna Barnes (Chatham, 2020-07-31)
#222I don’t believe it’s healthy to wear masks all day long!
Salvatore Bellissimo (Toronto, 2020-07-31)
#226Its wrong for the child to have mask on
Margaret Ronchi (Burlington , 2020-07-31)
#233This is not right or justified. The number of infection does not support this over reach. Masks should never be forced on healthy people especially children. There are also no exemptions pointed out as there should have been right from day one. Another case of discrimination. My son is not able to wear a face covering period. He is on the autism spectrum (very high functioning) but feels increased anxiety and feels as though he is suffocating when wearing one for even the shortest amount of time. In general our children’s learning and social experience this year will be negatively impacted if they allow this. The option to keeping your child at home and attending class via internet is not a viable option for so many of us! We need to work for a living and our jobs need our full attention. We can leave our children at home to get through this alone. Wake up people!!!
Amanda Bailey (Grafton , 2020-08-01)
#236This is infringing upon our rights! Masks keep bacteria out not viruses. Masks force us to breathe our own air namely carbon dioxide instead of breathing in fresh oxygen . So harmful for the lungs!!!!
Miranda Van Manen (Ridgeville, 2020-08-01)
#237I don’t want my kids wearing masks in school!!
Amber Santos (Toronto, 2020-08-01)
#238I honestly think having children wear a mask is inhumane. Besides we all know the virus rarely affects children.
Nicole Shank (Rockland, 2020-08-01)
#243This is child abuse!!
Kimberly Graham (Shawville Quebec , 2020-08-01)
#244Mask should be my choice!
Elizabeth Kaufman (Brantford, 2020-08-01)
#246My daughter will start school in a couple of years, and YOU will not cause her stress, anxiety, lack of oxygen, increased inhalation of CO2/toxins/bacteria, to meet YOUR agenda! Masking OUR children needs to end NOW!!
J Couts (Ottawa, 2020-08-01)
#247This is nothing less than psychological child abuse!
Nick Robinson (Innisfil, 2020-08-01)
#2611. Children are not affected as much as the older generation
2. The common flu takes more childrens lives than covid 19
3. Children will be distracted by their masks and their teachers masks and wont learn well
4. We are traumatizing our children, and for what?
Melinda Groeneveld (Fenwick, ON, 2020-08-01)
#264I don’t think children’s should be wearing masks that many hours of a day, especially homemade masks!
Melony McAndrews (Manilla, 2020-08-01)
#265Masks are dangerous if worn too long. Children won’t be comfortable and will get sick from the mask
Shawna Fowler (Manitouadge , 2020-08-01)
#273I think it is absolutely wrong making kids wear mask its unsafe
Julie Demarce (Wibdsor, 2020-08-01)
#274My child will NOT be going to School with a face covering all day. Staying home! When is this ending??
Enrique Klassen (Leamington ON, 2020-08-01)
#275This is beyond wrong
What are we doing
To the health of our poor children
Breathing in their own co2 in non sterile conditions 6 hours a day is not ok or safe
There is zero science to show masks work or that they are safe on this setting
Kayla Reiner (Woodstock , 2020-08-01)
#277this whole mask thing is unacceptable I will not send my kids to school if they have to wear a mask they need to breathe stop the fear mongering !!
Enrique and Mary Klassen (leamington , 2020-08-01)
#278Because I fear masks are more dangerous for my children than covid ever would be. Because this virus does not pose any risk to my children. Because my children have suffered enough and deserve to get their normal life back. Because there are other ways to protect those most at risk
Dan Lacoste (Russell , 2020-08-01)
#284There is very little science evidence that masks work, especially cloth masks. Kids won't wear them properly which is actually worst then not wearing one at all
Mary Knipf (Dorchester, 2020-08-01)
#285Makes no sense with snack breaks, lunch recess. How many times a day will they be touching their masks? Psychological warfare!!!
Lindsay Metcalfe (Sault Ste. Marie, 2020-08-01)
#288This is child abuse and unnecessary. Medical tyranny
Sonya Koenig (Paris, 2020-08-01)
#293I don’t believe that masks are effective or necessary
Janice Gatchell (Ottawa , 2020-08-01)
#294Children should not have to wear masks at school
Trish B (Richmond hill, 2020-08-01)
#295Children should not be put through this unnecessary trauma!!
Laury Sousa (Brampton, 2020-08-01)
#297It is absolutely inexcusable to ignore the clinical studies and research regarding the dangers of wearing masks. Not to mention the recommendations of of top 20 doctors in there field from Toronto’s world renowned Sick Kids Hospital in their report said children should return to a normal school life for emotional and mental health
Lisa Macaulay (Port Sydney , 2020-08-01)
#302I want to protect kids.
Marcus Klassen (Elmira, 2020-08-01)
#305Let’s look at the facts, we have about 10 million young people in Canada, ages 0-17 years. The mortality rate in this group from COVID-19 is 0%.
We also know from recent scientific studies AND information from WHO that there is no concern with asymptomatic transmission. Therefore, our children are not a threat to teachers, or any elderly members in their families. Let’s remember that over 80% of deaths in Ontario from COVID-19 occurred in nursing homes. Children who develop symptoms, as is the case with any respiratory infection, can rest at home until they recover.
There must be no “new normal” implemented in Ontario schools which will serve to irreparably traumatize our children, via enforced social distancing, cancellation of sports, wearing of masks etc.
Please act on your conscience and do what’s right for our children. The official CDC stats are that the infection mortality rate is 0.26% and is likely to go lower as up to 80% of people are asymptomatic.
Karlie Holtby (Peterborough , 2020-08-01)
#306Our politicians need to start listening to the experts! Sick Kids hospital released a report saying they did NOT recommend masks for children!
Meaghan Taylor-Macdonald (Pickering, 2020-08-01)
#312Disagree with masks being worn by everyone but especially children. Not necessary.
Kasia Krajicek (Oshawa, 2020-08-01)
#313It is dangerous for children’s physical and mental health, it MUST NOT HAPPEN!!
Irina Isakov (Toronto, 2020-08-01)
#322I dont beleive our kids should go through this nonsense that the government is making mandatory these are our children its our choice and decision not the government's. No masks in schools enough is enough.
István Bartha (Hamilton , 2020-08-01)
#324I am not teaching my children that masks are normal and I am not risking their health over a virus with a death rate lower than the most popular flu vaccine.
Courtney Bari (Tillsonburg, 2020-08-01)
#337Because it’s the right thing to do!
Nicole Tsingis (Innisfil, 2020-08-01)
#338I don’t want my child wear mask. I won’t send them to school that way!
Judit Gabor (Bradford , 2020-08-01)
#342All the science demonstrates masks are ineffective, children are not vectors for this virus and the psychological and emotional effects are detrimental to children.
Cosimina Leuzzi (Oakville , 2020-08-01)
#344Masks cause danger to your health
Harbhajan Sandhu (Vancouver , 2020-08-01)
#351Because children wearing masks in school is unscientific AND will have severe psychological consequences!
Mike Stoicevski (Toronto, 2020-08-01)
#354i dont think masks are the answer.
Andrea Neves (Tottenham, 2020-08-01)
#356Don't want the children to be emotionally scarred indefinitely.
Steve Vetricek (Mississauga, 2020-08-01)
#358Kids should not be wearing masks...they need to feel free and safe to learn and grow. They have been through enough. Mental Health is on the rise...these kids are our future...let them be kids.
Rosaria Wiseman (Aurora, 2020-08-01)
#362This is going to hurt the health of our children and the long term health problems will be worst than any virus.
America Martinez (Oshawa , 2020-08-01)
#364I am signing because wearing a mask in school is going to have a detrimental effect on our kids' health. !!!!!
Djina Okuka (Kitchener, 2020-08-01)
#370It is not right to force children to have to wear masks while at school. It will interfere with their studies, affect their breathing and distract them from what they're really there for and that is to learn. Show some common sense. I will not be sending my son back to school next year for his grade four class until our government starts using their brains for doing some actual good rather than useless optics that will have no positive effect.
Nick andreacola (York, 2020-08-01)
#371Covid 19 does not effect children and they should be breathing oxygen without restrictions.
Zack Aling (Hamilton , 2020-08-01)
#372I don't trust that we need mask.
I believe that it is not healthy at all to wear mask especially in schools.
We need oxigen.
Maria Morgunova (Toronto, 2020-08-01)
#374I'm signing because I agree 100% ....if this is the case my child will only be attending half of the time
Agata Benincasa (Hamilton , 2020-08-01)
#378masks weaken the immune system by inhaling back carbon dioxide. There is no scientific evidence that mask provide protection and there is no evidence that children are spreaders.
Siwa Ramirez (kitchener, 2020-08-01)
#379It’s Nazi Law
Terry Slade (Sunshine Coast , 2020-08-01)
#380my son he will enter grate 7 . he has asthma and lots of allergies and mask will create even bigger problem for his already poor health .
Kate Pietrzak (Mississauga, 2020-08-01)
#384Because this is ridiculous!
Doug Newton (Chatham-Kent, 2020-08-01)
#385Masks are a huge violation of human rights and no child should be wearing one
Stefanie Puiras (St. Marys , 2020-08-01)
#386The enemy's propaganda needs to be stopped!
Joe Jakubowski (Delhi, 2020-08-01)
#388I don’t agree
Jim Canie (Point Edward, 2020-08-01)
#392I don't want my child wearing a mask every day.
Amanda Potter (Oshawa, 2020-08-01)
#393I believe that wearing a mask for a prolonged period of time will harm my child's health
Alexei Mukhin (Newmarket, 2020-08-01)
#395The fear has to END - and this experiment cannot be at the expense of our children!!!b
Shannon Wells (Richmond Hill, 2020-08-01)
#397I am signing because I strongly disagree with children having to wear mask.
Neil Friesen (Leamington , 2020-08-01)
#399There is no justification, scientifically that masks are effective, chance of viral transmission from children is extremely low. From a health point of you masks lower the bodies natura immunity & rebreathing the toxins/germs from one's exhalation increase s the risk of getting sick.
