  1. The drug in question is one that is critical for other life-saving operations. By using it solely for COVID patients, you're taking the drug away from other patients who have a non-COVID related medical condition and depend on it. I'm also assuming the benefits of this drug for COVID treatment was a recent discovery by the medical community, so production hasn't caught up yet. There are also not that many companies who manufacture this drug (I suspect that this is the case because the drug was used for a very specific type of treatment - not COVID-related).
  2. Hindsight is 20/20. I wonder how many of us would have been absolutely pissed off with the government shutting things down to such a degree - myself included.
  3. This is the crux of the issue. The Feds made the conscious decision to be the "nice guy." Enforcement is another huge factor. It also boils down to personal responsibility, but of course, we can't rely on that
  4. While I agree with you, I wonder what the public backlash would have been if the Federal government immediately shut down international, or even domestic travel at the beginning of the pandemic. Smaller countries like New Zealand and Korea had no problems restricting international travel with designated quarantine hotels, but I wonder if the same would have been just as easy for a much more geographically vast country like Canada? Again, I agree with your take on how the lack of restrictions probably caused COVID to worsen here, but I don't think it's as black and whi
  5. I'm pretty sure air travel is under Federal jurisdiction, not provincial.
  6. Was in a meeting earlier today with officials from Ontario municipalities and the province's Ministry of Health and science advisory table. It was a pretty sobering briefing. ICU beds projected to be near capacity and there are shortages of life-saving drugs for COVID-19 patients requiring ICU care. COVID-19 patients can be in ICUs for up to 20 days which is a lot longer than patients recovering from something like a heart surgery (e.g. 2-3 days), which backs up capacity even more. Vaccine hesitancy already emerging in older age groups because of reported risks behind the AZ vaccin
  7. Before COVID, I lived in Toronto and I can tell you that the Raptors were just as revered than the Leafs during the Raptors championship run. Ever since the Raptors became a competitive team their popularity has been surging. You'll also notice that the crowds for Raptors and Leafs game are almost polar opposites. So while the Leafs remain to be the big ticket in town, the crowds at Scotiabank Arena look like a large gathering of white suburbia while Raptors games look like a much younger, diverse crowd. I always wondered what would have happened if the Grizzlies were a more compe
  8. Prep for Pettersson and Hughes? I don't know, I don't like this trade as well, but I really want to find out Benning's rationale.
  9. If this was done for cap purposes, I guess we were essentially in Vegas' shoes when they traded Schmidt?
  10. If Tyler Madden, who also was not in the Canucsk future plans, and a pick got Toffoli, Gaudette should have gotten something way more.
  11. I don't think so. I think a vast majority can all agree for once that this trade flat out does not make sense.
