Our Southern Neighbor has dropped mask mandates almost everywhere. Even most of the democrat states no longer forces veils on their citizens.
Unfortunately masks are still mandatory everywhere in Canada. Masks have become so central to the Canadian COVID religion that they may never disappear. Every Canadian Province has a reopen plan that in most cases does not mention masks. Their intention could well be to never drop mask mandates.

When will Canadians wake up and burn their damn masks.
