NDP MP Don Davies (Vancouver Kingsway, B.C.), his party’s health critic, told The Hill Times that his read on the situation was that there are conflicting feelings in the Canadian public.

“On the one hand, as we enter our third year, there is definitely fatigue and a yearning for a return to normal,” said Davies. “On the other hand, I think there is great concern that restrictions that are being lifted may be premature, but I think both of those strains are very prevalent in the population.”
