  1. Instead of worry about hand sanitizer, just was your hands like you do to avoid any germ transmission. It's proven more effective. Realistically, hand sanitizer should only be used when there is no nearby hand washing facility. The government of BC is doing the best job they can - as are the other provinces. There is no blueprint here. They are all trying a measured approach to manage outbreaks. The majority of the burden lies on the citizens of this country to follow the guidelines in place. If this is unacceptable to you, then so be it. But I don't see you coming up with a proactive approach that limits disruption and allows our economy to recover.
  2. How about just keeping in his current role and ice time? We've probably seen the sweet spot for him. Let's keep him there.
  3. Except this is from the National Post article in the links above: Pyne said he is unsure about his next steps. He said appealing his suspension through his union makes little sense since it was a union executive member and steward who filed the complaint that led to his suspension.
  4. No proof? Cancel culture doesn't care about proof. The Canucks organization should be cancelled over this obvious racism.
  5. Bingo. This seems like a cut and dry case where everyone thinks Brackett found all these players himself. He has to trust his scouting team. The scouts in the trenches find these players and they just report up the chain. He doesn't have some secret ability anymore than anyone else does. What makes you look good? Surround yourself with smart people to do the work for you. I'm not saying Brackett was completely devoid talent scouting ability as he was a scout himself, but he certainly gets a lot of credit for it. And by declaring him a lame duck, it pretty much indicates he wanted too much money or an increased role that the management team wasn't prepared to pony up. Benning will have another protege in no time; probably already does.
  6. Hahaha. What world do you live in where you can throw ultimatums in your boss' face and still expect to have a job??
  7. This is a half baked dumb idea. Fans in the stands are what makes playoff exciting. This is beer league action. And what does that do to the start of next season? Anyways I can do without some slapped together nonsense like this will be.
  8. Yet grocery store, liquor store, home improvement store, etc etc employee's have been mask free, at least in my community, the whole time and very few got sick/died. But keep beating the dead horse.
  9. Wouldn't you rather have control over how the setup is though? Or would you rather have someone who was handed a plan and told to implement it even if the plan stunk? What will likely happen is that some set of rules will be implemented and the staff will think it's ineffective and vote within their school to change them to a smarter more effective setup. All the ministry can do is give schools a framework to modify to suit their needs as long as certain controls are followed.
  10. At the same time they go distance learning figured out in a decent time frame all things considered.
  11. They are making an educated decision. They have much more data and experts who are making calculated decisions with the data they have at hand. Just because you don't agree with it, doesn't mean it's the wrong way to go. So far BC and Alberta have taken different approaches and both have been successful. Why question what their leaders are doing now? It's not like they don't care about the potential risks like you seem to think. Contrary to your worry, plenty of businesses stayed open the whole time up to today with little incidence of wild spread. In fact, it's been contained quite well due to the effort of everyone involved. Have some faith that this continues instead of being CDC's Chicken Little.
  12. Makes sense for the UK due to the size of the outbreak. Canada is a much different scenario. Just like the provinces all having different approaches, all countries will have different approaches. It doesn't make any of them wrong, just different based on the data they have.
  13. Funny enough, people generally compare BC and Alberta and that BC is doing so much better but beyond the surface of total cases, both are very similar in terms of hospitalizations, ICU cases and deaths. The reason why Alberta has more, is due to a higher volume of testing. It's almost double the amount of tests. More tests, more positives cases but the end result is quite similar.
  14. BC Ed are monsters! They didn't make PPE mandatory!
  15. https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/covid-19-case-modelling-projection-april-28.pdf When they put out projections like this, it doesn't inspire confidence. This is updated to less than a month ago. Check out the last 2 slides of expected hospitalizations and ICUs. The actual amounts are not even close to the revised projections.
