Of course BC schools would have never open on a mandatory basis during a Pandemic.  Are you serious ?

 

Luckily 85% of parents in gr. 6-12 did not follow our governments advice.

 

 

 

 

 

Of course... but they way you worded it as "parents refused to send their kids back"  made it seem like the government was telling them they had to, or even as you say now - "follow our governments advice" 

It was merely an option for parents that wanted it or thought appropriate for their situation. not every kid has a great home environment. 

 

parents had the option to send their kids back, for reasons as outlined in skategals post, and many declined as is their choice

Perhaps this is what Dr. B had in mind all along was a 15-20% turnout as it was purely an option to send one's kids back to school - clearly not mandatory or even fully encouraged. just an option. in some cases more necessary to do so than others with financial situations and what not. 

and there is some wisdom in having kids return to school now for a month or so

as it will allow the system to address and adjust to covid related transmission problems that might occur

so that when more kids return in the fall

the environment can be made even safer

That map is a little strange....

 

My first impression was that I was surprised at the cases in the Alaska panhandle, but some of the Canadian sites are confusing. The one near the west coast looks to be somewhere around Terrace, or maybe Smithers, but AFAIK, they have minimal cases. Maybe it's supposed to be PG?

 

Edmonton and Stoon both seem to be about right, but the one in Manitoba is nowhere near Winnipeg and the Ontario and Quebec locations are both in the middle of nowhere....:unsure:

it's not strange at all

the map is most likely sourced in the usa

and they do not expend any energy at all to look at places outside the usa

canada is worthy of 1 red dot per province, without any breakdown at all, as was done with the meaningful territories of the world (the usa)

we are fortunate they noted our virus stats by 1 dot and that we were not totally ignored

 

they have the virus issue well in hand down south, and can learn nothing from us

not even from bc or the excellent medical leadership provided by dr. henry

 

i think they chose to locate the red dot in bc near where you are located

due to the heat generated from that area by your heavy posting on here :P

Horgan/Fleming/DR. B. stated it would be safe to send your kids back to school.

 70% of parents disagreed and kept their kids home.  

 

 

 

 

We have read about an entire class in Quebec of kids now infected with Covid 19 ....

 

Quebec

44 students in Quebec have confirmed cases of COVID-19 ...

France

PARIS -- Just one week after a third of French schoolchildren went back to school in an easing of the coronavirus lockdown, there has been a worrying flareup of about 70 COVID-19 cases linked to schools, the government said Monday.

well he is likely somewhere on the north shore

and those north shore mountain ice caps cool his heat and mask his activity level 

we know rupert has no snow or ice

just constant., persistent, eternal rain (which is not effective at heat masking)

oh, and btw, have you evolved enough yet to have webbing between your toes and fingers?

yeah except the snow during that event

was liquified in rupert

a good day in rupert is when the clouds part enough

so the sun can shine in to bounce off the rain droplets

:P

 

ok i'm being extreme

but i was forced to fly up there

when the airlines were on strike

and had to locate some smallish airline that flew a few of us up there in a snowstorm

an unhappy memory

sorry rupertbo and chon.. nothing personal against people who live up there

i do hear it is a preferred location for those who suffer from sun related reactions

07 '16' was flooded for 9 days in mid may,  food supplys etc for haida Gwaii rupert had to be shipped rather than trucked, right now the run off is been pretty gradual but theres still lots of snow on the north faces , the skeena as we speak  is still running high and fast which is some what late for it to be doing that. not good for the  fish. recent  years have seen drought to extreme hi river flow.

This is actually true. Several years ago, a family from South Africa immigrated here, because the father and all of the children suffered from Porphyria
