Coronavirus: Quebec orders 2-week shutdown of non-essential businesses starting Christmas Day

Hi !

Link : https://globalnews.ca/news/7523567/coro ... stmas-day/

December 26 2020 to january 11 2020 : Quebec will close all non essential bussinesses.

Geant retailer like costco and wal-mart will remove access to clothes and other stuff not essentials during the period...

Quebec wants equity because during the first shut down smaller bussinesses were closes but gean retailers like costco and wal-mart was still selling clothes, dvd, books etc...

Hmmm. How do call a business nonessential when someone is making a living running it? Seems pretty essential to them and their family.

I am more intrigued about with self checkout. How will the stores will react?

Exemples Maxi and Cie sell non-essentials products like toys... I understand government wants faire trade against small medium bussinesses..

So will amazon still deliver these "non-essential" items in Quebec?

I was reading somewhere on rfd that some areas regulate by depending on neighbours grassing on each other.

It's not going to work too well if people in the neighbourhood happen to share the same mentality and such. :(

It'll depend on the instructions given to stores. This is what Costco had to to in Winnipeg: https://savemoneyinwinnipeg.com/what-co ... -manitoba/

Legault and his team were evasive during the announcement regarding how they'll implement restrictions. It wasn't clear if the stores would have to rope off sections with non-essential products.

Funny how gov't continues to earn full tax-funded salary while denying some people the right to earn a living.
