This is so disgusting. I'm furious about this. I sure hope the #%^%&*()(&^$ that have been sending death threats to Dr. Henry are found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

This doctor has so much wide spread affection and respect from so many people, it's impossible to comprehend how anybody could be hating on and threatening such a beloved and inspiring person who has done so much good in guiding our province through the covid crisis.

Unbelievable!

When it comes to these useless tools who object to masking, distancing and isolating going to these lengths due to their idiotic beliefs; perhaps they more aptly fit the descriptive title of my earlier thread regarding "stupidity".

Like yourself, if they can catch just one of them, it is my fervent hope they make an example of him/her to the extent people think long and hard before resorting to that "stupidity".

Dr. Theresa Tam and Dr. Anthony Fauci (and his two daughters!) have been receiving similar comments. It’s disgusting.

This pandemic has really brought out the worst in some people and exposed how backwards many in our society still are.

I hope they find them. The articles don't state how the threats were made or if they are local?

There are some real nut jobs out there and some who seem so easily influenced by propaganda. No critical thinking skills.

Those that believe that there is some sort of worldwide conspiracy to control us by wearing masks etc are simpletons.

I used to visit Facebook pretty much daily. Now it is 2-3 times per week tops, and most of that is due to the fact that I am a moderator on an aviation page, and I have tasks to carry out.

More than a few people have also found their way into my penalty box for foisting their warped political opinions on me.

Death threats, historically, are benign.

A person who intends to kill another person (or persons) does not announce their intention, they enact it.

There is a great deal of frustration nowadays, and many people are desperate, and desperate people resort to desperate measures, such as death threats. They rarely amount to anything substantial.

Blessings!

Mahrie.
