It seems BC is extending the lock down for indoor dining again. While I haven't heard the official comment yet the rumor was until after May long weekend. This would also include large gatherings which I'd take to include things like football TC's?

That's brutal for the business community and their employees.

There's rumours that it will actually escalate to a 4 week non essential shut down.

There are a few Provinces that are really in rough shape right now. These new variants are nasty.

Yes, the problem is that people are still going out to house parties, restaurants, and hanging out with friends in the malls.  If everyone on the planet would just lock themselves up for 1 month with no contact to anyone, we will be done with this virus long time ago. With internet, millions of tv shows, cell phones, we won't go crazy hopefully... Smiley

Alberta had 1646 cases yesterday and 54% of those was the new variants, which was #1 in Canada per capita.

BC had 1205 cases.

Ontario is in need of health care workers.

Quebec reporting 1527 cases today.

Heading back out to the lake till my next vaccination which is the first week of June.

Manitoba:
April 12, zero deaths.
April 13, two deaths.
April 14, three deaths.
April 15, one death.
April 16, zero deaths.

Shutdown everything on Monday?  Patrol the border?  Kill the CFL?

Two very different scenarios.  Ben Franklin was talking specifically about a tax issue whereas the current situation involves the health, well being and the future for many people around the world, including the 10 provinces and 3 territories comprising Canada.

Numbers are slowly going up in Winnipeg, with 127 new cases today. The total numbers in Manitoba today was around 183. I here there was about 300 losers at the Forks today protesting public health orders.

I say, if you want to stay home and cocoon yourself, you can do that. The people who choose not to live in fear and are willing to move about and live their lives go for it.

No sign of intelligent life in this post either.

If people who go out were only putting their own health at risk, I'd have no problem with it, but hat's not the way it works. Folks who don't take precautions pass it on to others who don't take precautions. The old and those with preexisting conditions might die if they get it. Folks who get it and end up in the hospitals cost taxpayers a ton of money and put pressure on already overworked medical staff. Wear your masks. Wash your hands. Stay at home as much as possible. How is that too much to ask?

Having 300 people in close proximity with no masks, with the new variants is really a stupid thing to do right now.

So should these people that you are speaking about, get treatment for Covid if they get it?
