  1. They are supposed to go straight home and arrange to have groceries etc delivered. There are agencies equipped to take care of those who don't have family or friends to do that for them.
  2. Sounds familiar, TSS. I live in a rural area in northern BC and our health resources are minimal at best. The population of our specific area is 20,000 souls and we have but 64 acute care beds in our small hospital. Other communities don't even have a hospital. Lately we've seen many people from the Lower Mainland coming up early to open their cottages. The CRD (a local form of government) had to enact regulations that will force these people to a 14-day quarantine and they are to come prepared for the duration - no stopping to shop or visit. Straight to your cabin and stay their until t
  3. If it was just something that they wanted to do to avoid delays then why weren't they upfront with the Opposition parties and provincial premiers from the beginning? Why wait until the very day they were to read the bill in the HoC before releasing their final draft? I can well understand that the government needs the ability to move quickly to respond to new developments during this crisis but that does not give them the right to forgo Parliamentary approval which as has just been demonstrated, can take place in a a day or two.
  4. "Climate group Extinction Rebellion (XR) say they are investigating a series of “dangerous” coronavirus posts by an account using their name. An account named XR East Midlands (@xr_east) have caused outrage after tweeting “abhorrent” messaging stating coronavirus is a “cure”. The account posted a series of covid19 messages over the last 24 hours suggesting the deadly virus was a "cure" for the "disease" caused to the environment by humans. One post reads: "The undeniable truth is, the Earth is recovering, thanks to Corona." Another previous Tweet said: "Earth is healing. Th
  5. So, in a National Health Crisis, the minority liberal government got together with the Opposition parties and provincial premiers to strike a deal for a financial bail-out package that is much needed to help Canadians and Canadian businesses in these trying times. Everyone agreed that it was necessary and supported the bill as it was then presented to them. All federal parties agree to send a set number of MPs to the HoC for an extraordinary recall of Parliament. And yesterday they gathered expecting that this would be passed in the House and sent to the Senate at the end of the
  6. Add me to the list. My friends don't call me a hermit for no reason. Got my pup and my cat for company and oodles of great books to read. Stocked up on groceries long ago and have a neighbor with lots of TP he bought months ago from Costco - good to go, I am.
  7. I felt invincible when I was much younger but I also knew that if I broke the rules there were consequences. So I guess the kids should just set up house on the beach? Because home is exactly where they would be headed at the end of the day. Every single one a possible vector for the virus.
  8. Photo reminds me of the aftermath of a climate change protest.
  9. When I was a very young girl growing up on a farm in SK, we had an outdoor biffy and the Eaton's or Simpson-Sears catalogue - worked a charm they did.
  10. "Now is the time to declare martial law in Canada. Anyone caught outside their home can be sent to prison for up to 1 year." According to the latest numbers, the people who have recovered from the virus by far outnumber those who have died. And of those who have succumbed to the virus, most had underlying health conditions. There is no need to declare martial law and the idea that someone would be sent to jail for a year should they break any such draconian measure is ludicrous. "If we close all our borders and forced everyone to stay inside their home for 3 weeks, the virus would
  11. " Queue the mass panic...." - which you are only contributing to with this post. Get a grip.
  12. Try checking smaller stores, scrib. Our local country store had no shortage of any products including TP and hand sanitizer. Just saying.
  13. The cbc loathe Trump and will take any opportunity to watch him make a fool of himself - they are rarely disappointed which I'm sure brings glee to the hearts of all those virtue-signalling censorious twits in the corp.
  14. But................but that's not what Trump said today. According to him his 'good friend' is just fine - no worries.
  15. "The economy will continue being the economy,...." A total nonsense statement much like 'the budget will balance itself'. "......but sustainable, and as eyeball said, not dependent on growth, " Sustainable upon what? You do realize that economies depend on growth..............course not. ''....live within its means, " L O L ".......distribute wealth more usefully so money circulates within our economy rather than being hoarded by corporations and super wealthy people offshore, hidden from taxes." What 'wealth'? The wealth of our country lies in her people.
  16. The list of Indigenous groups that have officially endorsed the Frontier project has grown to 14: Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Mikisew Cree First Nation Fort McKay First Nation Fort Chipewyan Métis Fort McKay Métis Fort McMurray Métis 1935 Fort McMurray First Nation #468 Métis Nation of Alberta - Region 1 and its member locals: Athabasca Landing Local # 2010 Buffalo Lake Local # 2002 Conklin Local # 193 Lac La Biche Local # 1909 Owl River Local # 1949 Willow Lake Local # 780
  17. "......must be the first consideration in determining whether the legislation or action in question can be justified." True...............but not the last.
  18. Opinion: The link between oilsands development and First Nations prosperity "But First Nations involved in the oilsands have higher incomes and rates of employment compared with many First Nations across Canada and, in select cases, even when compared with the general population. Fort McKay’s median employment income is higher than of nine of the 10 provinces, where median incomes range from $45,183 (Prince Edward Island) to $55,696 (Newfoundland and Labrador). Only Alberta, with a median employment income of $64,090, is higher than Fort McKay. Likewise, across Canada, the average une
  19. First:" Governments could have prevented the RCMP attacks and the nation-wide blockades..." Total, complete and utter bullshit though not surprising considering you obviously have no conception whatsoever of the rule of law. Second: Pipeline project was ‘hijacked’ by ‘group of five guys,’ former Wet’suwet’en hereditary chief tells MPs The hereditary chiefs were being supported by environmentalists who were disrespecting the rest of the Wet’suwet’en community, Tait Day said. "The hereditary chiefs were being supported by environmentalists, Tait Day said, who were disres
  20. Thank heavens Pug no longer has any relevance whatsoever. Sitting in the nosebleed section of the HoC is exactly where she belongs.
  21. “There is almost no case where Aboriginal title confers an absolute right,” Plant said. “Canadian law is always about balance. There are always cases where the greater social good will prevail over a private right, no matter how important or passionately held.” www.princegeorgecitizen.com/news/local-news/delgamuukw-did-not-settle-the-question-of-wet-suwet-en-title-1.24085622
  22. I actually bothered to read the entire screed....................funny thing............not one single word about the so-called 'crackdown by RCMP'. Next time find an article that provides details about the headline. Sheesh.
