B.C. bans hoarding, resale of food and medical supplies amid coronavirus emergency

The B.C. government announced sweeping new rules Wednesday to crack down on private stockpiling and profiteering off of essential goods during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

"(This is) making sure our essential service workers, including health workers, have every resource available that they need with their incredible efforts in caring for all of us."

Under a number of dramatic new orders, British Columbians are no longer permitted to resell food, medical supplies, cleaning supplies or personal protective equipment such as masks and gloves.

The measure will also restrict the quantity of such goods that consumers can purchase.

Jeez you'd think common sense would have had this in action far earlier but hey now no one can get TP and other essentials and that won't be easy to change seeing how everywhere is dry and people out there actually need it.

Thanks Gov.
