If I’m not mistaken, the players have to agree on the hub cities or at least have input on the decision. The players are going to prefer to be in a city like Vegas or Toronto rather than Edmonton or Columbus. 

GENEVA — The coronavirus pandemic is accelerating, with Thursday’s 150,000 new cases the highest in a single day and nearly half of them in the Americas, the World Health Organization (WHO) said.

“The world is in a new and dangerous phase,” Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual briefing from WHO headquarters in Geneva. “The virus is still spreading fast, it is still deadly, and most people are still susceptible.”

You guys feel there will be a second wave?  
 

I think we are opening up too soon.  As of Monday, 3 beeches will be fully opened here in Toronto.

For some reason, when I first read that....something ELSE came to my mind.

 

(I gotta get my mind out of the gutter :ph34r:).

yes, lets let Canadians who've lost their jobs due to the oandemic also lose their cars, their homes etc.  I'd rather have a government that goes too far to protect it's citizens than one that says "**** you, you're on your own".  There are always going to be people who abuse the system........the juice is well worth the squeeze, imo.

 

Yes, we should've opened up just like the US, I mean it worked for them right?

 

I'm glad you led with the "purposeful attack" chestnut as it gave me a frame of reference for the rest of your post.

When people are making more money sitting at home and playing video games rather than contributing to society and being back at work then there is a problem. Obviously logic is not your thing. 
 

I dare you to go ask as many businesses like the smaller restaurants and speak with owners on this particular issue. They can tell you first hand that they are refusing to come back to work. I guess the business owners losing their cars and houses don’t matter to you right?

There will be a small percentage abusing the system, there always is and there always will be.  However, that is and will be a small percentage.  For the amount of people it saves, it's a small price to pay and I can easily live with it.

 

I fully expect Universal Basic Income to be the result of the this pandemic, a move in the right direction as far as I am concerned.

Opening up too soon is resulting in hundreds of needless deaths in countries around the world. I prefer the B.C. way of doing things

 

People making more on CERB just shines a light on the fact that those people were underpaid by their current employer.

It’s real easy for you to say business owners need to pay people more when you’re not the one responsible for all the bills. Do you think it’s feasible to charge $20 for a burrito and everyone is happy? It doesn’t work that way. Your world would cause immediate bankruptcy. Then everyone loses.

Have you bothered to divide $2,000 by a full time  work month and see just how much 2gr equals by that math?

2,000/ 160 hrs = $12.50   12.50 which is less than minimum wage.

 

It's real easy for  you :rolleyes:
