Former (haven't seen him online for a while) poster Souvenir was a frequent attendee at that convention. Hope he's OK!

Trump is restricting travel from Europe to the US for 30 days, appears he is exempting the UK for now.

People calling to shut down the US border for a month, not sure they realize how badly they would affect Canada. Wonder how much food supplies we have as a country, how long can we remain self sufficient?

This would have to be provincial level, but I wish they would enact some emergency protections for renters and prohibit evictions if put under isolation or quarantine or otherwise can't pay rent due to COVID, renters are in a more precarious position, banks don't foreclose nearly as quickly for non-payment, where miss rent, landlord can issue 10 days notice to vacate. I'd like to think landlords would be more more understanding, but my experience with BC landlords is they are not understanding and rarely willing to work with a tenant.

That would be for people not cargo. Obvs a driver is needed but halting other crossings would help

I, unfortunately, have a compromised immune system, so have taken it upon myself to self-isolate by staying at home. The last thing I need is to go out and mix with other people and end up in hospital.

I am taking the same precautions. I don’t have a compromise immune system...stay safe.

Trudeau is in isolation. His wife has symptoms.

perhaps someone with more backbone will step up
