  1. 1. 2020-2021, Keep the young core intact. Fill up void roster spot from UFA bargains bin, maintain the team competitive and in playoff.—it is not cup contending year. Run out bad contracts naturally. Will not trade LE and 1st round draft pick to dump salary unless there is a tremendous good opportunity to acquire Cernak/Killorn/Johnson. 2. 2021-2022 Edler, Baertschi, Sutter and Pearson’s contract will be off hook. (17 mil cap space right there) I predict Benning will sign one of Hughes or Pettersson a short 2 year bridge contract. The other will get 8.5 mil

  4. Lost two family friends back in England, mum knew them quite well. One was 45, one was 70. Cause of death was purely covid. No other distractions for some peoples rosy statistics. There are a few others on here that have sadly known people that have perished.

  5. Agreed. Not blaming you I think it’s a problem that all of us as a society are facing. This virus seems to be either politicized or used to make headlines too often right now. Take today for example, CBC reporting record cases in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, yet nowhere in their article do they mention what percentage that is of people tested. Thats just lazy journalism, and it works to get people to click on their articles. It’s absolutely disgusting though. I don’t ever see Dr.Henry talk about number of tests related to active cases. It’s becom

  6. I agree that a shutdown of the economy sucks. That being said, if people stopped &^@#ing around with their huge crowds, we wouldn't even have to consider this option.

  7. If only 0.9% mortality rate was the only problem. What about 9% with long term problems caused by Covid not to mention overwhelming hospitals, missed work etc.

  8. Agreed Dazle, but the elephant in the room is BC's public education sector. I don't care what Dr. B says - having full-time enrollment in our school system is a HUGE risk to take with the onset of the second wave. There are no public gatherings that even compare to the scale that is the public education system operating at full capacity (or close to it) on a daily basis in this province. On top of that, there are well documented and legitimate concerns about how forthright the health authorities/government have been regarding exposures/transmissions at schools all across the province.

  10. No universal health care would fix that problem. However Americans are too afraid of socialism and too stupid to fix it. Imagine being afraid of socialism. Afraid of old age security, afraid of town councils, afraid of condo boards or unemployment insurance. All forms of socialism. I could list many others. Trump and his gangsters sow fear and division to cloud the truth.

  11. To be honest, this very thread shows why we as humans can't be ready for a virus like this. When you have people who don't care about people dying and want the economy going, it just shows how far behind we really are if we ever hope to be able to respond well to these kinds of things.

  12. hard to believe, when the math doesnt check out. 2/3 of 285000 is 190000. the actual death count is 224000, off by about 15 % . so right away the article is misleading, and doesnt explain what a excess death is. this is crap reporting

  13. That's doubtful to happen. I hope I'm wrong with that, but I don't think I'm wrong unfortunately. At any rate, it's "future projections". There's literally nothing concrete to stand on for it to prove any point whatsoever.

  14. Okay so you want to use the study that includes pre-existing conditions. If you had stage 4 brain cancer and happened to have COVID-19, you are including in the head count of these mortality rates. If you committed suicide and happened to have COVID-19, you are considered in this study. In the source I quoted it takes into account the primary cause of death, not every death in which they found COVID-19 in the body. Do your research.

  15. BC NOW needs leadership that is not anti mask and anti current science.... COVID-19: Dozens of B.C.'s top doctors want mandatory masks in civic facilities Letter from 171 doctors, surgeons and dentists sent as a dozen anti-maskers protest outside Vancouver city hall “We cannot afford another “lockdown” which leads to devastating effects on individuals and society,” state the signatories, that include the Head of Infectious Diseases at St. Paul’s Hospital. “We need to act now and focus on improving our use of all basic interventions to reduce both tra

  16. 285 is 95% of 300. That is nearly in my books. And you are the poster that stated it was "300" in the headline. So you are now wrong twice.

  17. From earlier in the thread, page 990- for the newcomers: Reminder that it's not just the deaths... "both articles state that 300K people died to corona in the title" Absolutely false. Both headlines say "nearly".

  18. No one here is a medical expert on Covid. We rely on the advice of Credible Medical Experts. No Credible Medical Expert is willing to compare this to the common Flu. Get it?

  21. I never said it was essentially nothing. What I am saying is that the opportunity cost of the countries restrictions. For example, the unemployment rate has over doubled since February. In February, the unemployment rate was 5.6%. July was 13.7%, September 11.3%. That is a significant uptick of stress for families. Correlated to those numbers are owners and operators of companies suffering to get by and stay afloat. This is just one example of the cost of the countries restrictions. A second example is the struggle for children trying to do E-learning often resulting in one parent ne
