  1. https://www.dlsph.utoronto.ca/covid19real/real-review/how-well-do-cloth-masks-reduce-transmission-of-sars-cov-2-viral-particles/ https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-12/masks-can-reduce-covid-spread-by-40-german-study-suggests https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/more/masking-science-sars-cov2.html Data regarding the “real-world” effectiveness of community masking are limited to observational and epidemiological studies. An investigation of a high-exposure event, in which 2 symptomatically ill hair stylists interacted for an average of 15 minutes with each o
  2. People not following the guidelines is what makes the methods ineffective. If all the people - even the young healthy ones who hardly ever die even if they get sick - didn't think they were safe to party, go to weddings, birthday parties, house parties and street parties, we wouldn't have increasing cases. Henry imposed testrictions in Lower Mainland two weeks; cases stopped increasing. The rest of BC continued to increase - from 100% a day to 300% in different areas. So now the rest of BC gets the same restrictions. Politicians across Canada are begging people to take precautio
  3. So does that mean if SCOTUS held up Biden's win, you'd accept it and stop claiming there was fraud?
  4. That's not how their system works; SCOTUS is not likely to hear any of these cases, because most of them involve State Law and would be decided by the State Supreme Court. Even if one or two did make it to SCOTUS, it would be months down the road. And, even though Trump has done his best to stack SCOTUS in his favor, I've faith that these people would put the Constitution of the United States ahead of the wishes of a tin-pot dictator wannabe.
  5. You don't have to love Biden/Harris to recognize who Trump is. There's no love lost between Argus and me, but he's absolutely right about Trump and his followers. Trump lost, and every time there's no proof of fraud, you guys insist even more people are in on some massive fraud. Its nothing short of bizarre. If/when you come back to your senses, you'll be extremely embarrassed - just like the men and women who send their life savings to some scammer overseas because "love".
  6. Yes, we could always do better - that's part of being human. I work with 7 people on my team; we range in age from early 30s to early 60s. Of those 8 people, two are cancer survivors and are imunnocompromised, one is diabetic and smokes, and one has asthma. How do you suggest those 4 be "protected" while the others continue as normal? (And don't assume that it's the older ones who are most compromised, cause you'd be wrong.) In addition, one of the non-vulnerable people has parents who are extremely vulnerable - how would you protect her parents while still allowing her contact a
  7. If you want to know what happens when minimal effort is made to control the virus, look at the States. Why would you wait till there's an actual crisis before doing something to mitigate it? Freedom doesn't actually mean we all get to do what we want, regardless of the effect it has on the rest of the society. That would be called "chaos", and would be unsustainable.
  8. Who is going to staff these compounds? There's been a chronic shortage of health professionals even before Covid, but you think we've got enough to staff special covid hospitals? And why would you put the elderly with "the sick"? Are you trying to kill them off? "You isolate the people who are vulnerable" You don't even know who is vulnerable - more than you assume. Currently younger people are getting sick, younger people are ending up in hospital and, ultimately, some die - because they thought they were safer than "old people", thought they could carry on as "normal."

  9. From a nurse in the Tricities. @oops, @taxme, @OftenWrong - she's talking to you.
  10. Well, Oops, let me explain like you are five: Imagine a bathtub with the drain left open, and the tap running. If the tap is running faster than the drain, eventually the bathtub will fill up and then overflow. Only by turning the tap down can we prevent the tub from filling and overflowing. Right now, our hospitals are like that bathtub, the increasing infections are the tap and the people who recover or die are the drain. Dr. Henry is trying to slow that "tap" of increasing infections down so that the "tub" of our hospital beds do not become full or overflowing. Most peopl
  11. Yes, the US will pay $2 Billion (iirc) for the developed vaccine. That is not the same as providing money for its development.
  12. Dr Bonnie requiring masks in public and retail spaces.  Anti-maskers won't be able to harass workers without consequence anymore.  :)

      Who’s Dr. Bonnie?

      Your family doctor?

      Are anti-maskers still allowed to be harassed?

  13. The Democrats called for volunteers to do this, so yeah, I'm not surprised if these volunteers only called Democrats. In addition, voters themselves could track and cure their own ballots. I expect that your claim that poll workers only called Democrat voters is BS. Election officials were both democrat and republican and would be expected to carry out their duties in a bipartisan manner. Just because you can't imagine putting aside your own partisanship to ensure a fair election diesn't mean nobody can. And how dare Trump and his minions insult 10s of thousands of Americ
  14. Those polls also say that immigrants believe its very important to accept and exhibit Canadian culture and values. One of those values is freedom to dress how one wishes.
  15. Republicans had the opportunity; they didn't take it. That's on them.
