  1. Everyone trying their best to deal with all this isolating. No easy feet for many... Sorry guys, wrong thread.
  2. I have no idea what you are saying.
  3. I don't know about you guys, but I think we are very lucky to have Dr. Henry and Mr. Dix running the show. I like how Horgan has taken a back seat and allows these two to take the lead. Here's a recent article about our team in the Globe and Mail that touches on there approach and communications. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/editorials/article-memo-to-the-rest-of-canada-how-dr-bonnie-henry-and-bc-are-getting/ Also, did anyone notice that Dix appeared p-off/frustrated with the notion of citizens returning to Canada in the upcoming weeks will not be 'mandated' to isolate for 14 days? Very much like when he was begging the Feds to close the US boarder. After most of BC has been isolating for the past 2 weeks, we are now going to have an influx of citizens returning (from high virus contact areas), who will have little (if any) supervision. I almost got the impression that he wanted a snitch line. I really don't have a problem with snitching; especially when we are at an important phase in managing this virus. Be interesting if the Neighbourhood Watch in each community could be in on this.
  4. Obviously there's no way of knowing the exact numbers...not even close. But the numbers they are reporting, indicate that (by the law of average) there is a noticeable dip in the daily numbers. The most important numbers are the critical cases and use of hospital services. As long as this virus is not allowed to overwhelm the health care system, there is reason believe there can be a positive outcome, although it will take months of determination.
  5. 43 new cases shows as a good result. The protocols being followed appear to be paying off. RIP to the 5 that have died. Feel bad for the elder folks living in the care homes. Very difficult time for their families. Dr. Henry is showing signs of fatigue today. She is doing a terrific job, but I would think it can be overwhelming at times. Hope she is getting the praise she deserves. ((((((((((((Dr. Bonnie Henry)))))))))) I am also really impressed with ((((((((Arian Dix)))))))) as well.
  6. Bet those stats go down this year...
  7. But there is something to be said for comic relief during a time of crises...
  8. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/30/opinions/history-verdict-on-trump-devastating-dantonio/index.html I think the thing that disturbs me most about Trump is that he is so divisive, which is not helpful in a time of crises. The federal and state officials do not present as a united front and the ongoing politicking leaves the average citizen doubting the honesty and trustworthiness of their governments. In a crises, I prefer the united front being shown by the Canadian officials. It leaves me with the impression that everyone is working for a common purpose and their is no place for politics. Even the official opposition of Canada has chosen to take a less vocal approach during this most difficult time. I am very pleased with the lead taken by health minister Dix and health officer Dr. Henry. They always present themselves in a calm, professional manner, while (tirelessly) sharing important information and explanations. Although I am not a big fan of Trudeau, I do think he works well with the team and has allowed each province the authority to process the government's mandate(s) as they see fit. I also believe that Trudeau is a very compassionate man who loves his country and its people. To me, that is truly an important characteristic for a leader during this crises.
  9. They wish they could have been hockey players?
  10. Apparently, 3 guns/rifles for each and every man, woman and child in America is not enough!
  11. Yes, and their offspring...
  12. Essential services, don't you know.
  13. I hear liquor sales are up 40% in BC. Should pass TP in a few days!
  14. Well, he is sorta...in injuries.
