So essential workers or workers who are deemed 'essential' that work across the border don't need to be tested when they return?  I don't agree with that.  

Is that different than truckers who are crossing and moving products from country to country?

I swear, if this idiot is still in office come next election, I'll be the first to drink the bleach.  I can't take another 4 years of his tweets.

I wonder how much this recent racial issues is going to work for Biden because a couple months ago I didn't think Biden had a hope in hell, now he may if enough independents/centerists are pushed to avoid trump again after this crap show.

If I’m not mistaken, Biden was already polling well with African-Americans even before this all happened.

A liberal candidate who served as VP for the country’s first black president. 
 

I’d be curious to see the numbers on it now but I imagine Trump is going to get thrashed in the black vote even more than he was going to anyway.

Trump isn't after the Black vote......    7% of the total vote ...    Clearly trump is after the moonshine / banjo voters which is 51 % of Americans .....

Black conservatives do exist. They get thrashed about by their own communities and make up a minority within the minority. Left usually majority of the black vote.

I’m well aware. What I’m saying is I’m curious to see just how lopsided that demographic will vote come November.

Really wish the BC media would start doing their job.   Start asking hard questions to our government . 

 

BC gov.   should be releasing the name of the fastfood restaurant that has the outbreak so people that went there can get tested. and avoid the place.

Actually, BC is a world example on Covid.

 

So imagine everyone else is worse.

And there you have it.

Lets keep it that way.   People of BC have done an amazing job so far.... but of course there is still tough work still to be done.  This virus is here among us and we all need to be diligent and thoughtful in how we act.

But the hysteria around the virus in this province is nauseating. The virus is here, will continue to come here, and it's going to ramp up when the border does officially open because that will have to happen one day soon. The goal was to keep the hospitals from being overwhelmed, and now it appears the goal is to get the number of cases to zero. New Zealand proved that the second you open the border and allow travel the numbers are going to go up. Given our proximity to WA and AB it seems likely to me we could be right back where we were in March. So either you keep everything locked down and hide behind plastic screens and this and that and strangle small businesses to death and wait for a vaccine which many are going to refuse until they get sick, and even then may refuse it still, or you open the doors ultimately, eventually, and let whatever happens happen.

I don't see anyone saying we shouldn't slowly open up.  What is leading you to think that?

Vaccines don’t work if you already have the disease.

It is, I agree. 
 

However, we will undoubtedly face a second wave. 
 

I think the point of having our govt answer hard questions about their planning, for it, and trying to mitigate it right now based on this new uptick and those 2 outbreaks, is a legitimate point to make. Also, why not release the name of the restaurant that had an outbreak. It’s a matter of public safety.

Having the disease still can mean that you are able to be reinfected. The immunity from what I’ve read/seen isn’t long lasting. Everyone will need to be vaccinated. This will be the new vaccination/booster regimen as it is for measles/mumps/rubella/typhoid/etc for humanity going forward.

Researchers at the University of Guelph studying the impact of the COVID-19 caseload on the medical system in Canada have found the number of new cases continue to climb among people under the age of 20 in Ontario.

Ed McBean, a professor and the lead researcher, said as of mid-May, infection curves were flattening for other age groups in the province but numbers of daily new cases for people under 20 were still rising, especially in the Toronto and Peel regions.

"It was very surprising — a significant increase. They are not the biggest caseload at this point, but they are increasing at the highest rate," McBean told CBC News on Monday. "This was very unusual, especially given that daycares and schools are closed."

So for 99% of BCs population it should work ... well didn’t really do the arithmetic but for most folks I’m sure they’d like it.
