Dear Leaders, Premiers, Health officers and others
I am sure that each and every one of us wants this to be over. We want to move on with our lives, work, families and communities.
Many people lost loved ones to Covid-19 or as a result of the fall-out from it. Small businesses and whole economies collapsed under lockdown. Unemployment, suicide, domestic violence, divorce and addiction rates skyrocketed, and global hunger and homelessness doubled. We are a planet and a nation in grief and disarray.
