Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.

JT has a green plan in the works to restart the economy . Look how well it worked in Ontario . What could go wrong ?apnayloags wrote: ↑ The new CRB will only be 400 per week so thats barely not even rent money. And they said its last 26 weeks.
What’s gonna happen to these people? Where will the jobs come from now?
The few planes that come in are holding some airport jobs, if they stop coming in there will be more layoffs which will be permanent
Restrictions and lockdowns in 2nd wave will be the end of G8 economies. How will people have enough for food and shelter which costs a lot more than 1600 per month!

Literally the only people, on ANY form of social media, who seem to want the border opened, are on this RFD forum.A new poll by pollster Research Co. found that out of 1,000 Canadians surveyed online at the end of August, a whopping 90 per cent agreed with the current Canada-U.S. border closure to non-essential traffic.

That’s what happens when the media manages to terrify people using a virus with a 1.4% infection fatality rate.

It's called "astroturfing", folks.

What's funny is that my local supermarkets (costco, RCSS, walmart) reverted back to pre-covid layout and rules, with only RCSS and walmart requesting you to wear a mask.apnayloags wrote: ↑ Ofcourse, this whole 14 day quarantine is jyst killing the airlines and travel industry. Keep it up and maybe they all will go bankrupt.
Is this what the powers that control world want?? Make thousands more unemployed
What about the ripple effects of layoffs on everything related??

10-15 years from now, our example will be used to either show how to manage a pandemic or how not to. My money is on the latter.Me262A1 wrote: ↑ What's funny is that my local supermarkets (costco, RCSS, walmart) reverted back to pre-covid layout and rules, with only RCSS and walmart requesting you to wear a mask.
That's it. No crowd management (x number of people inside), no pathways. Even costco reverted back to the original layout. No queue anymore to any checkouts, nothing.
So what did the mass lockdown acomplish? Nothing, other than a delayed infection rate, with hospitals being empty and "ready" for covid for several months. But it bankrupted a ton of companies and jobs lost.
Canada doesn't do any green list from countries with low infection, just mass 14 day quarantine for anyone. I don't have stats but I'm sure even if there was no quarantine upon return, over 90% of infection would be from within community, not traveling.

The US/Canada land border being open is a moot point for most since Canadians can and always have been able to fly to the US. Sure, Americans can’t fly here but there was much more southern traffic demand anyways.

Quack? Based on what?

It may not take that long...
One of Denmark's most prominent epidemiology researchers has said that the coronavirus pandemic in Sweden "may be finished" due to immunity in the population, even through the country remains far from the classic 60 percent threshold.
"Just 20 percent immunity makes a pretty big difference, because those who were infected at the start of the epidemic were the most susceptible to the coronavirus and the most socially active,” Britton told Politiken.

The Swedish model, which I'm an advocate off, is anathema to a lot of people who've been advocating lockdown all along and are now afraid they'll look like a bunch of ignoramus fools to change direction.leoo wrote: ↑ It may not take that long...
