Politicians exempt themselves from strict Manitoba mask law

Does the coronavirus check with someone to see if they’re a politician or a mere mortal first?

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we looked at a new public health order exempting a mask order based on occupation.

Look at this news story:

Manitoba public health orders exempt elected officials — and several other types of individuals who provide vital services — from self-isolation orders when travelling outside Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.

A spokeswoman for Manitoba Health said elected officials and their staff can travel for business or vacation or a combination of both, and they do not have to self-isolate when they return to Manitoba if they are not displaying any symptoms of COVID-19, as they are engaged in providing a vital service.

Maybe we should have had masks three months ago, but this isn't medical science. This is politics.
