BC - Government should pay heed to public demand for complete shutdown - Punjabi
RADIO - Red FM 93.1 Punjabi Morning - Vancouver, 20/03/2020 - COMMENTARY, Punjabi
Translated Summary: Harjinder Thind - The public wants Canada to be under lockdown. Various officials, including the prime minister and health officials, are delaying this decision. People are very upset with this delay. England also kept postponing its lockdown because of a lack of leadership; now when the situation has deteriorated, England is panicking. Leadership there failed to lead people in the right direction. What should not happen is that, because of a lack of leadership here in Canada as well, a lockdown is imposed only when thousands have already been hospitalized. People are aware, and when the virus initially spread, people on this show demanded that schools be shut down. Government officials did not pay heed to these demands. Now schools have had to be shut down indefinitely. Similarly, imposing a lockdown in the country is essential at this stage. British Columbia being located right at the border, it is imperative to shut down the province. This attitude of complacency and delay can end up costing a great deal. At least the provincial government should be convinced to do so. The callers on the show all agreed with the host.
