In 1999, children across Ontario were given a book and asked to predict what they thought the world would look like in 2020.

The book, entitled My Ontario: The Millennium Memento, was distributed to children in primary and secondary schools across the province.

Did the Ontario government predict the 2020 pandemic in 1999? #ontario #ontariolockdown #dougford #pandemic #covid19 #canada #conspiracy #jokes

The results of those predictions can now be compared to reality — and some are unbelievably close to the province's COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.

Documented through a TikTok, one child predicted that children would be learning online. They wrote, "They [teachers] don't have to worry about chalk and all that, and then the kids don't have to buy notebooks, they just use the computer."

Even creepier, the date on the picture is Monday, April 14, 2020, which is just days after Ontario actually announced students would begin online learning due to the pandemic.

The narration then claims that another kid predicted that in 2020 "hospitals needed help to cure an unknown disease."

She wrote, "I plan to make hospitals better by having medecine that can cure diseases like cystic fibrosis, cancer and other diseases that we can not cure yet."

The Government of Canada is ending its India flight ban next week, which has been in place since April 2021.

"Canada continues to take a risk-based and measured approach to re-opening the border while prioritizing the health and safety of everyone in Canada," federal officials said in a news release on Tuesday, September 21.

Ontario's ​Vaccine Passport Can Be Saved On Your Phone & Here's How I Did It In 5 Minutes

A new tool lets you store your vaccine certificate as an image, a PDF file, or as a card in your Apple Wallet.

Starting Wednesday, September 22, Ontarians are expected to show their proof of vaxx to enter certain non-essential businesses and settings. However, because enhanced vaccine certificates with QR codes won't come into effect in the province until October 22, a team of volunteer software engineers and medical professionals created a tool that lets you store your proof of vaccination on your phone with a QR code.

"No personal data is sent to the internet. [The] QR code is for verification only, with no personal info," the team behind the tool told CTV News.
