The 3-year old is using the remote control “to call the pizza man” He ordered “a cheese pizza. With more cheese. And farts on top of the cheese.”

I personally don’t like the ban. I want to go to St. John’s and I can’t. But it was done to keep people safe & because people are afraid. It’s a region with an older population and lots of chronic disease. Linking those concerns to federal aid for an industry is mean and dumb

Also, the government(s) did this. Not the people who make a hard living in the fishing boats and fish plants of Atlantic Canada. I doubt this executive director and general counsel would last a day on a boat or a shift in a plant. Canadians should travel their country more.

People really really really really should be listening to what the public health officials across the country are saying today. The numbers are going in the wrong direction because people are doing the wrong things.

One of the comforting things about Canada’s response to covid-19 is that public health officials are the main spokespeople & appear to be the prime decision makers. Politicians at all levels & all stripes are either riding shotgun or in the back seat. A non political response.
