To The Editor,

Like many people, I was both shocked and amazed at the self-centered attitude and seditious nature of a recent letter from Gordon Fraser entitled “What happened to freedom”. People do not wear masks to “submit” to anyone or eliminate “individualism”! We wear them to protect the people we love and care about. We wear them to minimize the risk to others we come in contact with in order to stop a killer virus that has already taken so many lives. Being responsible for our behavior is part of living in a free society. The only thing we are trying to dominate is COVID-19. Comparing legislation to try and stop the spread of a deadly disease to slavery, is an ill-conceived concept based on a person’s total lack of consideration for others. Which I might add, is a perfect description of the statement made by American Attorney General Barr.
