saw some goofy speed wobbles with attestation forms but all in all surprised and impressed as well. I predicted the CAF would cave and drag the process out or support any and every HR and religious claim.
I thought the same thing and have been impressed with the CAF concerted response

Hey, a new variant has been found and is circulating.

Already named too, the Nu variant. Seems like it might be significantly more transmitable than delta.

Many countries banning flights from southern African countries, but it's already in Europe and Israel.

Just in time for Christmas!

Possibly.

Here is the same article word for word in the Herald Sun. The headline is accurate. Maybe an editorial choice from one paper to the next. But if people can’t actually read properly it doesn’t always mean the media is at fault.

Here’s a direct quote from the article that you posted -

“The Department of Health said the child, who was one of five people who died from coronavirus across the state on Friday,”

It still clearly states that the child died from covid - it’s completely wrong and not factually correct at all.

This is the song that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friend
Some people started singing it
Not knowing what it was
But people kept singing it just because

My understanding is that it has a larger cluster of transmissibility-related mutations that have been seen separately on other VOCs and which individually or in smaller combinations have contributed to greater ability to spread. Immune escape is still TBD.

Fifth Wave anyone?
Unfortunately, we are not getting a travel ban with the most effected region, just testing and 14 day quarantine.

So I expect it to fully entrench in Canada before long.

Hong Kong has a confirmed case that flew from Canada. Needless to say Canada is not a logical layover for any flight to Hong Kong from anywhere else, so it’s here already.

Yeah, by the time one of these variants are found its safe to assume its everywhere, at least in small numbers.

The point is to not have more cases being brought in than necessary.

Just when you thought that it was safe to go outside again. The anti-maskers/vax-ers are going to go crazy. I had to add the hyphen because my phone kept autocorrecting that word to 'cadets'.

There are two confirmed cases of the omicron variant of the coronavirus in Ottawa, the Ontario government announced Sunday.

"Today, the province of Ontario has confirmed two cases of the omicron variant of COVID-19 in Ottawa, both of which were reported in individuals with recent travel from Nigeria. Ottawa Public Health is conducting case and contact management and the patients are in isolation," the statement said.

I thought there'd be more than that....


Failing to show proof of vaccination means unpaid leave for 432 B.C. government workers​


Just over one per cent B.C. government employees — 432 people — will be placed on unpaid leave after failing to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or declining to disclose their vaccination status as required. All those employed by the B.C.

What the hell!





😣
I initially thought that the proposed legislation aimed at situation like this was unnecessary because existing legislation was sufficient, but for situations like this I'm not so sure. Whether any new legislation would survive a Charter challenge would remain to be seen.
