On the same page I saw this! Chapman's Ice Cream (UK immigrants who started a company, lost it in a fire, then rebuilt) are in the news. Their son Ashley who heads the business is on the anti-vaxers' shit list for imposing a mandate on his employees. Chapman's is good stuff, and I haven't had ice cream since the spring but I might pick some up after reading this:

They are breaking the “Geneva Convention”, apparently. I am confident a complaint to UNHRC against Chapman’s will succeed. Uyghur concentration camp complaints are touch and go but “Chapman’s makes me take tests” is a slam dunk.

The Chapman family are local heroes. The factory burned down and they were out of business for months, perhaps longer, while a new one was built. During that time they paid their employees as if they were working. Around here it's safer to say a word against St. Dolly Parton than against the Chapmans.

Seems like a rather level headed and fair policy, they could have gone the other way and just fired them all like other companies.

Plus giving a $1/hr raise to the vaccinated employees is only fair, since the company is spending about the same having to test the non-vaccinated, so if you look at from a different angle, the non-vaccinated are simply choosing to use their $1/hr raise for COVID tests instead.

While I have never been a fan of their ice cream, I do admire them as a company and they seem like an overall good place to work and a good family who seems to care.

Frozen yogurt also good.
Cappuccino my favourite but their 'Magnum' style almond ice cream bars are very good too.

It takes your mind off the virus. See...on topic

This afternoon we walked through Toronto’s PATH system (underground shops and walkways linking the Downtown office buildings, mall and train station). A couple of months ago it was deserted and 99% of the shops were closed. Today there were quite a few people walking around and most of the shops were open. It’s not as busy as it was pre-Covid…but it’s getting there.

I heard a quote the other day saying something like, "This pandemic will not end when everyone is vaccinated, it will end when everyone has been infected"

He didn't ban flights, he banned Chinese people from flights Americans could still take. He was, and is, a racist and that was a racist policy.

That was a hard slog, nothing more in it to suggest that anti vax people might be right than in this one:
