They also have geography on their side unlike Canada. UK could have followed a similar model but bring more interconnected it would have been more difficult 

Personally, I think they have better discipline than Americans and Canadians.

Not really all that true. Aussie's and Kiwi's are a stubborn bunch. It's more to do with prompt decisions made by their governments, smaller populations and both being islands. NZ shut it down early and hard.

We could have sealed our borders and we're a very geographically isolated country within our borders.  We have only 37 million people in the second biggest country on the planet.  We could have........should have done better.

Potentially - but you guys having the largest land border in the world and having most of your population in  densely populated cities doesn’t help.(81% urban population) Also the fact that Toronto is a major world hub makes it difficult. 
 

that and the geographic size can mean it can hide out in isolated pockets and then re-emerge. 
 

whereas Australian and new Zealand are not transport or freighting hubs, and there are no borders to worry about. 


what I cannot believe happened though was allowing the transit of Americans through BC to get to Alaska. That should not have happened at all.

King of Surrey must be pleased.

"Our district has experienced more school-based exposures than any other district in our province," said Laurie Larsen, Chair of the Surrey Board of Education. "Education is an essential service, and we are so pleased that our school staff will be able to get immunized early."

 

With almost 9,000 school-based staff in the district, appointments are being offered to schools in zones that have the highest rates of community transmission first. This means that our first priority will be all schools in the Panorama-Sullivan, City Centre and Newton-Fleetwood areas.

 

Vaccinations will begin March 24 and our hope is that all of our school-based staff will be immunized by April 1. The clinics will begin with a capacity of more than 400 people per day but will quickly increase to about 1,500 per day.

W5 did a 20 minute piece on a religious group in Ontario who are opposed to the Covid lockdown.

 

 

Too bad w5 is not reporting all the facts, only those that toe the line. As much conspiracy as what they are “reporting “.

Even if KOS isn't going to rejoice publicly about this, I will definitely say, "it's about &^@#ing time the &^@#ing health authorities got their &^@#ing heads out of their &^@#ing asses!" - too many months too late, I should add

Oooo this is a good one:

 

 

Too funny seeing this tool get arrested! He is a real racist dirtbag social media activist who lost a mayoralty election in Mississauga and started a coffee brand called “Wasted Native.” A real piece of trash.
If I’m not mistaken the man mentioned below, Mohammad Fekih is the same person featured last night on Global feeding free meals to frontline workers in old-age care homes in Ontario An emigrant from Lebanon and an absolute gem of a human being.

'Hate speech at its worst': Ontario restauranteur awarded $2.5M in defamation suit against online media personality

 

 

A self-styled online media personality whose websites frequently air anti-Muslim content has been ordered to pay the owner of a prominent Middle Eastern restaurant chain millions of dollars after publicly accusing him of funding terrorism.

Ontario Superior Court Justice Jane Ferguson ordered Kevin J. Johnston to pay a total of $2.5 million in damages for defamation to Mohamad Fakih, the owner and founder of Paramount Fine Foods.

 

Johnston, who operated websites including FreedomReport.ca and recently came in second place in Mississauga’s mayoral race, posted multiple videos attacking Fakih.

In the videos, shot in 2017, Johnston made a series of incendiary statements including a claim Fakih was an “economic terrorist” with backing from the Pakistani spy agency.

He also alleged restaurant policy barred staff from admitting anyone who wasn’t a “jihadist.”
