I looked into the Disney & Wal-Mart mandatory vaccines.

Wal-Mart it doesn't apply to most of their workforce, store and distribution center employees are not included, as well Wal-Mart policy exempts those with a valid reason not to get the vaccine.

Disney policy only applies to salaried and non-union hourly, a good amount of their on site park employees are unionized and the policy doesn't apply to them at this time, subject to change if the unions agree.

It was probably a cymbolic firing.. if he couldn't be vaccinated many bands won't allow them to participate/play/perform (a family member is a singer, wasn't able to go on tour with the band because she can't have the vaccine - allergy issues, apparently it's due to venues and insurance problems)

And that seems to be how this whole pandemic has been handled around the world. A variety of changing rules and protocols that apply to some more than others and are more strictly controlled in some areas and blatantly left to run riot in others. It's a bit laughable when they tell you no jab no job and you say "i'm a union employee, i'm exempt"

In the case of WalMart it's more "I'm a union employee, that contract amendment hasn't been negotiated yet".

Also, the singer's PhD thesis was on Discovery of mature microRNA sequences within the protein-coding regions of global HIV-1 genomes: predictions of novel mechanisms for viral infection and pathogenicity, so it might be that he has no time for this rubbish about having a reason for not being vaccinated.

Good luck to our esteemed members if they try to put in a claim for ODSP, based on their inability to be vaccinated... https://www.cleo.on.ca/en/publica9tions/disabben/step-2-do-i-qualify-because-my-disability
ODSP is notoriously hard to claim but it is possible to claim for temporary disability if a disability lasts a year.
However my post on the definition of disability wasn't related to ODSPs definition of disability. If your health condition prevents you from leaving the house then you have a disability.
pretty sure I recall you commenting that because of COVID you were stuck at home, has that changed?

There is a difference to not being physically able to leave the house and choosing not to.

In your opinion - not in the family member's GP and medical teams. Some of us are unable to be vaccinated at this time on medical advice - not through choice.

This holier than thou attitude is getting tedious.

The drummer's explanation for not being vaccinated makes no reference to personal medical advice, only to a general disbelief in the medical efficacy of vaccines.

Not sure what you find far-fetched here but Alberta has embarked on a lunatic policy of encouraging the coronavirus. It's hard to identify people who've been to Alberta among people from Canada so one should expect countries to blacklist all Canadians.

Companies in the US with unions have a master list of who is union so would be hard if the company is on the ball to lie about it.

How does ODSP work?

PWD in BC is a payer of last resort, to even apply for PWD status, you have to be eligible for general assistance first, they literally will not give you the application unless your approved for general assistance first, you can be disabled but not eligible for general assistance and thus not able to apply for PWD.

Basic requirements for them to let you apply for PWD

1- Be in financial need and eligible for general assistance.

2- Have a doctor or nurse practitioner confirm you have a severe physical and/or mental impairment that is expected to continue for more than two years. (this one can be quite hard, if one of the unfortunate to be without a GP)

3- Be significantly restricted in your ability to perform daily-living activities

And most people are denied first time around.

Indeed but I had understood that your decision to stay home was because of COVID and medical advice to avoid risk.
So obviously not,. You can leave anytime. I'll remember.
