Kelly Anne Wolfe is one of the people who strongly disagree with the governments’ decision to require wearing a face mask in public during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. She was in an anti-mask mandate rally at the corner of Yonge and Bloor Streets in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 7, 2020, the same day Toronto mayor John Tory implemented a citywide mask mandate.
Wolfe and her fellow anti-mask protesters distributed leaflets that contain arguments why wearing face masks should not be mandatory. One of the recipients was Brian Tao, who holds a bachelor’s degree in cell and molecular biology.
Tao ripped the leaflet handed to him, which Wolfe did not appreciate. She told him, “I’m all over the place.”
“I’m a musician and a very popular one,” Wolfe claimed. “Anyone who is going to commit to this kind of civil obedience is the same kind of people that believed their government when they walked the Jews into the gas tanks. By the way, I’ve got 13 degrees in psychology, I’m a member of MENSA and have a masters in political science.”
All of the information Wolfe said about herself are false just like the information written on the leaflet, such as the claim that wearing a mask decreases oxygen intake. When Tao challenged her about it, she told him to come to Queen’s Park in Toronto where her fellow anti-mask protesters will be doing a live demonstration of “how your oxygen is decreased and your carbon monoxide intake is increased.”
“Carbon dioxide not carbon monoxide,” Tao corrected Wolfe. She did not appreciate the correction either.
