But Vancouver young adults seem to have this massive hate for boomers, its really odd to read and listen to. They seem to think all boomers are wealthy and sitting on piles of cash.

In Kelowna, I don't see high mask usage, at least compared to Vancouver, but its mostly older people wearing masks from what I have noticed, not young people. But there is far less masks being worn in general out this way, which seems consistent with the lower mainland as well, the more blue collar and conservative areas of the LM have less mask usage as well.
I guess less population density means the transmission risk is lower.

The inter-generational angst in Vancouver is understandable, although the sky high property prices are not directly their doing.

30 year old man in Toronto, finally awake and off ventilator. 59 days on the ventilator, lost 130 pounds. Other members of his family also had the virus but recovered.

Currently he is unable to walk, and has limited strength in his arms and will be discharged soon from hospital to a rehabilitation centre.

A comparison with Montreal and Toronto is interesting. Montreal's population is about two-thirds that of Toronto.
For population density per km2 Montreal is 3,889 and Toronto 4,334.
Montreal has a slightly smaller population density but has over 28,000 cases as opposed to Toronto's 15,000.

Is a crowded subway to blame? According to wiki, Toronto subway ridership is 1.58m while Montreal's is 1.367m. So even with that Montreal's figure is lower.

What are the reasons for Montreal having nearly twice as many cases?

No idea. Quebec being more tactile than Ontario? Timing of the initial infection, and timing of lockdown measures? Intergenerational households? Poutine?

It was my mother in law's birthday yesterday and she wanted Poutine for dinner. If that's the cause, one of us will be quarantined for a bit.

In the US there has been a suggestion that the coronavirus message on hygiene, SD, and masks has been getting through and/or accepted more in the English-speaking population than the non-(primarily) English-speaking (notably Spanish) speaking population.
