Definitely don't feel safe kiting going forward especially after rain when sewage gets overflowed and forced into the lake Ontario. Coronavirus is known to be found in sewage, so what are the chances of picking it up in a body of water ?

I really worry about the news sites you read.

The epoch times?
I worry about you, if you don't read Epoch Times. I don't really have much to talk about with people who don't.
You know that the Epoch Times is owned by an exiled Chinese religious cult now located in upstate New York? They are just pretending to be a real news organization so they can push their propaganda.....its crazy town conspiracy stuff with news sprinkled in to make it look legit...
All media has some bias, but be very skeptical of this one.

I find that statement equally disturbing. I’m not sure why you so readily believe things written in epoch times or the patriot and yet discount cnn or yahoo news. Even ap, Reuter’s or bbc.

Personally I fact check every source of material and I do read alternative views on things.

Sometimes the truth isn’t what you would like, but it’s still the truth.

This “news organization” was caught creating hundreds of fake profiles pretending to be Americans on facebook to spread their fake news...just one example.
What credible news source does that? They are a joke, and are anti China because the communist govt. wouldn’t let them practice their cult religion.

Hong kong, Singapore going into lockdown.... so far I am being proven right. This strategy will go on and on till either a vaccine appears or the general population revolts and removes their governments. Watch out for what they put in the vaccine.....
