    Was too lazy to screenshot it but Vancouver's still pretty high (keyword?) some reason. Grass fires in peoples' mouths? :noidea:

    That’s just over three times the number of Canadians that did. Either the US is doing this better or were really, really in the shit.

    Why don't we take all the money that is aimed at big business in this stimulus package and give it all to citizens? If we give every person more money, then it stands to reason they will spend more money. Once that happens, eventually the businesses will get that money.

    Don't give money to airlines, give money to people. Then they might take more trips.

    We can call it "Trickle Up" economics.

    I’m not against some bailouts but they really could’ve left the airline industry to fend for itself on this one.

    Was watching BBC News last night and they showed how the government has commandeered the ice rink that the Madrid Hockey team plays in to use as a morgue. In the story they showed the line of vans waiting outside to drop off their cargo.

    They also showed outside London where a conference center is being retrofitted to be a makeshift hospital. The open space is over a kilometer long with all the walls removed and they expect to be able to put in 1800 - 2000 beds in individual "cubicles". The person running it said "We know it won't be enough, but we will help as many as we can."


    The scale of this is staggering. When you think of how many people you can fit inside the boards on an ice rink and think it's one city worth of dead people in the span of days. 2000 beds isn't going to be enough.

    seems you're talking from both sides of your mouth here.

    you either want a near total shut down (ergo massive ei claims from temporary layoffs)
    or you want people to keep working, so less claims.

    pick a lane.


    my opinion, the US is absolutely not doing this better.
    It's going to get fucking messy down there within a month.
    they are going through their first wave of health care workers getting sick.
    strain on system is about to jack up something fierce
    some states are deniers, and the ones that are trying to take it seriously are facing headwinds from orange dipshit
    junior may not be a bold leader up here, but at least he's not getting in the way of provinces
