Weird how not many people want to live on the island and so many want to live on the lower mainland

Yes the island is a poor place to live (sarcasm), it's too rainy compared to North Vancouver (sarcasm), it's real estate prices are too high(true, but sarcasm) compared to the mainland. And you have to on a ferry to get here. Come to visit (when COVID-19 is over), but then go home, to your commutes, the crowds, the.....

The plan of  having 1-2 kids attend school  all day..... yet the same teacher is expected to support home learning for the other 20 students at the same time that stay home all week......

 

Well this will only burn out our teachers. It is super tough job and the BC plan will only frustrate  / exhaust our great BC teachers.

Not sure that all teachers are like that.

 

My kids and my nieces and nephews get assignments for the week.  My kids get one zoom meeting with the class and teacher per week.  My daughter is on zoom with her classmates for projects (no teacher).  

 

Now they are getting ready for report cards.

 

I help my youngest with his homework.   My oldest does her assignments and send drafts for feedbacks once prior to final submission. 

 

So really, I'm doing the teaching job for my youngest.

Fyi, we dont actually want anyone moving here. The Island is closed.

 

And we've had 1 case of COVID in the last 3 weeks (and the jackass came from Albertica).

My brood and I will be moving there in a few weeks and joining you and @bishopshodan. Sorry :P

That's great news.

We can use people like you in the new republic. 

Make sure your papers are in order and no funny business.  Lucky is a fair but strong leader. He won't tolerate any nonsense.

You'll be happy to know we've been staying with my diabetic parents in their 70's and hence extremely careful during the pandemic as well ;)

it would be a pretty self sufficient place imo - world leader in great seafood, eco tourism and boutique weed. 

Now if we could only figure out a way to encourage people to farm all that rich agricultural land and build heated greenhouses etc.

You're one of the good guys. I'll just look the other way.

I wonder what extra measures YVR will take when curve is flattened and travel is open again.

I have a question. if say a Tim Hortons had a staff worker tested positive and they shut down the place but are telling people there cooler broke down, but two different people have said she tested positive. I am not sure who to believe, but my daughter, her husband and her teenage son were there the day before they closed. should she get in touch with Fraser Health for the truth or will they even tell her. should her family self isolate?

I don't know what the criteria are where you live, but I'd say that is a pretty good reason to request a test.

Were they wearing masks?  Did they maintain social distancing?  Did the TH employees wear masks?  Was there a plexiglass separating the employees from customers?

 

Many questions. 

 

At the very least, should self monitor to see if any symptoms crop up.

I would just go get tested anyways. Few times I've gone through Timmie's lately they all seem gloved and masked right up so I'm sure they are just fine but doesn't hurt to find out now that they have opened up testing.

Don't trust Tim Hortons.   Don't trust the BC government.

 

The Tims by the Keg in Abby is shutdown today and everyone there is talking about it. 

 

Abby had 2 outbreaks yesterday. NW industry was announced...  the other business is being kept un-ANNOUNCED>>>>>>  why ?

 

Tims does provide masks to their workers.... unlike the BC government. 

 

Get tested.   Better safe than sorry.

love the island,

I am hearing Harry Belafonte singing "This is my island, in the sun, where my people have come since time begun....". Yup, it is a little bit of heaven here. I've always thought that Earth is the best planet in this Solar System to live on, and Canada is the best country on this planet to live in, BC is the best province in this country to live in, and Vancouver Island is the best part of BC to live in, and the Cowichan Valley is the best part of the Island to live in. So logically, what's the conclusion?

I'm happy you guys are back. My boy wasn't missing school at all, nor the social aspect, because he's out skateboarding, biking, shooting pucks and hanging out with the neighbourhood kids all afternoon.

 

My 6yro daughter... she was so happy to go back and see one of her "million friends".

I've tried to set up a few hangouts with her friends for her and it just hasn't been working out, I've been feeling pretty bad for her. The kidos need other kidos to do dumb $&!# with. 

 

 

I expected more kids back, especially since I'm in a moderately low socio-economic area, but our admin was pretty open with parents that this wasn't going to be a coming to school to hang out with friends on the playground experience.  Social distancing was going to be respected and they only have a 15 free time period outside for lunch (they go outside with their teacher quite a bit, but not unstructured time..  I think most parents and kids just want to start up again in Sept
