A friend wrote to me this morning saying,
"Check out Doug Ford's Mussolini style rant about more testing. "We need to test all taxi drivers, Uber, transit, random...on and on. He sounds like a psychopath. Wouldn't surprise me if they hire by-law testers that will have the authority to stick a squab up your nose or your arse."
They already set the stage for all of this as far back as when they mandated seat-belts and motorcycle helmets. It was a violation of basic human rights back then, which is why people like me opposed it, but the counter-argument as was perfectly stated, re seat-belts by then Ontario Attorney General, Roy McMurtry I believe went,

The next time someone takes a shit in your living room will you be content to just "Agree to disagree?"— Dic Mac (@BloatnThSlumbos) May 22, 2020
