It's mind boggling to me....the rationale behind not wanting the vax.  Uh, here's the flipside....good luck.

I'd normally say, "eff them if they want to take that chance" but they could just as likely infect other people (or even have a slight chance of infecting those that are vaccinated).

I love it when a heavy topic thread devolves into chatter about booze... shows our priorities in times of crisis :gocan:

 

It says something about society that the liquor stores were essentially deemed essential services...

....and after about 45 years of "disinfecting" my insides should be pretty much pristine....

Alc is terrible for the liver. Lemon is great for the liver.

 

I drink vodka, lemon and soda.

Am I wrong to secretly hope that this truck driver would have just kept driving? How do you cull people this stupid?

 

 

IF I'm the trucker I'm asking the cops to arrest those folk for illegal confinement.

I have no problem with protests, but  the right to protest is not the right to impede. Stay on the sidewalks.

The armed forces are driving the inter-provincial delivery plan.  I'm sure they're using every resource at their disposal, including flights.  ;)


Being against vaccination may be a personal choice but deciding that you should be allowed to block vaccine access for others is beyond stupid and arrogant. Arrest them immediately and clear the road. You are free to protest but not to stop me from getting my vaccination.

Aside from the logistical capabilities of the armed forces being somewhat superior to those of the civilian public service, I suspect that at least part of the consideration to deploy the armed forces to handle inter-provincial distribution was due to concern for situations like this.  I think a convoy of armed troops escorting a shipment of vaccines via land transport would probably give reason for any group of protesters to pause and re-consider their blockading ways.  However, land transport is probably not the most efficient means of getting vaccines distributed from a central distribution point (likely Toronto or Montreal) where the vaccines are arriving in Canada, so I'm almost certain the armed forces are using flights to get vaccines from point of entry in Canada to point of central distribution at the provincial level.  It's really the only option that makes sense, short of Star Trek style teleportaion devices.

lots of green for me, though I don't think I'm mentally there yet, personally.

You raise a really good point about the individual (even when fully vaccinated) still needing time to get comfortable with close groups.  Hopefully the concepts of cleanliness and awareness of others’ personal space are things that people keep as things to do.  I’d say wearing masks in and around elderly folk in nursing homes would be smart too.

yeah, that's going to be an ease back into it thing for me.  That said, after wearing masks all day everyday since October the thought of not wearing them is amazing.  My mom is fully vaxxed now and it's going to be nice to go into her house and not worry about it...........not worry much about it.  I don't know when the nagging worry will go away.  It'll be nice to see some friends without masks too
