The data is all available and being published, people simply don’t look past the front page. The Ontario Science Table has been publishing and sourcing their data and projections this whole time, and they’ve been forecasting things pretty accurately. Assuming they remain reasonably accurate, their latest models are deeply disturbing. The less than scientifically enlightened individuals running the province literally said they ‘wanted to see if the hospitals would match the models’ before making a decision on the latest restrictions. Well, it did.No government wants to kill the economy or impose unpopular measures.
As I said, if governments would be more transparent with regards to data driving their decision-making, people would be less inclined to make inaccurate assumptions and resort to hyperbole.
