    You should quit rage reading. It literally stated that it was from the Prime minister.

    And now they've posted some costs billed to the traveler of 1200 bux so your still saving 400 by using the rights guaranteed under the charter

    Because people who quarantine still have tens of thousands of opportunities to contract and spread from point A to point B. They spend hours in an aircraft cabin and hundreds of hours in the hotels. Human beings are vessels of virus transmission and many of them are still going to warm destinations because it's cold here and all the restaurants are closed.

    I'm actually with the 'half measure' crowd. They should have completely shut down international travel from day one. If they did, these variants wouldn't be here.

    Hmmm...guess that's why there are dozens of COVID variants spreading internationally. They've got this shit locked down.

    7 South African variant in all of Alberta
    271 U.K variants in all of Alberta

    have these variants caused any abnormal curves in those countries? the answer is no
    both the UK and South Africa's cases peaked in the beginning of January...just like Canada and the U.S

    I'm not in Alberta. My city is currently in a red zone and locked down because we've had more cases in the last month than we had for the entire pandemic. Why? Somebody travelled.

    Pure fear mongering.

    "We're going to have to manage this pandemic certainly over the next year, but certainly [we are] planning for the longer term of the next two to three years during which the vaccine may play a role but we don't know yet."

    She knows she can spew this stuff and people will eat it up. So many pillows in this world.

    Gotta be fair here. A lot of people travel for work and other very important business. Can't really lump it all into one large entity. I don't travel but I'm making an assumption that the vast majority of those who do aren't being shitty about it.

    Yes, we currently have a South African variant in an outbreak at a retirement complex and spreading within the community.

    This is why I'm saying 'unnecessarily' travelling. Some do for work. Others are still going for vacation.

    Then Venn diagram between people who will not take a COVID test and people who won't voluntarily self-isolate is a circle.

    He may also be trying to avoid this situation.

    I love how you're talking from a position of self-proclaimed superiority when this whole conversation devolved from you parading the actions of an anti-masking dumb f*** that is about to pay hundreds of dollars in fines because he values his 'rights' more than the well-being of others.

    I can't be bothered to be upset. Just consistently disappointed with how the world continues to manage the challenges presented by this pandemic. I have no doubts I'll be let down in 2022 as well. As a population, we're not getting smarter.

    Unless you are there. From other pics from other places he was getting top-of-the-line food.

    Another article mentioned how they just call people an Uber and tell them to go home and quarantine. Sigh. Poor Uber drivers.

    I just saw the food and laughed. It reminded me of Fyre Festival. You have to remember that these are people who chose to travel despite numerous government requests for them not to.

    If they're going to bungle the quality of someone's hotel stay, now's the time.

    Okay. I've heard these types of figures thrown out by COVID-deniers from day one. The case count will continue to grow and the virus will continue not being Influenza despite how much an unhealthily large contingent of our population will continue to convince themselves that it is.

    You’re right as a population we are being deceived to believe that hiding from a virus is the best and only way to fight it. We have never in history taken this approach to a pandemic. We allowed healthy people to contract previous pandemic viruses which in turn ensures that those who survived passed on the genes to future generations, which in turn made our species as a whole more immune to said viruses. Hiding away will only delay the inevitable and in the end we won’t be any better off than we are today. But you know lock everyone up for an undetermined amount of time and keep pushing the narrative it is for our safety!
