    A thread by Dan Kelly

    CFIB supports extending CERB with a few important modifications:

    1. Ensuring Parliament passes proposed legislation to end benefits if an employer offers a return to work

    2. Like EI, requiring users to be available & actively looking for work (barring health/family issues).

    Allowing CERB recipients to earn more than $1000 without losing all benefits (phasing out benefits with additional earnings).

    A growing # of employers are reporting CERB is serving to delay employees return to work. This was one of the programs intended goals during shutdown. While it is too soon to end CERB as thousands do not have a job to which to return, changes are needed for the recovery phase.

    I gather she said that due to time factors.

    If she is implying that Covid takes the day off for a good protest, well...I didn't know Covid had a moral compass.

    The protests are a subject that no public figure or politician dares to publicly say anything that could be construed as being negative about out of fear of cancel culture.

    35 new cases in Alberta. Calgary with 190 active cases, Edmonton now with 185.

    Hospital numbers on average going down still

    Be interesting when hockey decides who stays where. Oilers likely end up at the Tropicana. ;)

    Didn't know Arizona was getting hit so hard. Their active case load per capita is jumping:



    Suppose there would be a lot of elderly retired people around. Assume lots of time spent indoors with AC going to circulate some virus around. They are getting near their max capacity for ICU beds.

    I met a buddy for dinner over the weekend. You are correct it was pretty deserted. The vast majority of the people out and about were the marginal types who can be quite odd. Very likely mental health issues in most cases.

    If someone spent much time downtown pre-covid they would likely recognize most of these people. I don't think there are more of these odd people, but they are the ones who aren't too worried about the virus for whatever reason.
