Enough is enough.

Hopefully I haven't missed Boris's Christmas Party this year.
Unfortunately those rules are for us brainwashed mortals only...and for the media to get all excited about, so they can pile on the doom and gloom.

Totally agree... enough is enough...that what the vaccine was developed for so we can carry on with life and between us all build herd immunity

Hope you have great visit... I think you will make it in good time for Boris's Christmas party!! Either way have a good one!!

2,421 cases in Ontario yesterday. 10K per day predicted by the end of Jan. Hopefully most will not be very sick as they have been vaccinated.

We've decided to cancel our planned train trip across to Nova Scotia for Christmas.

We're due to leave on Monday, but covid increases everywhere, including in Nova Scotia, seem to make cancelling the wisest course, as we could face being quarantined at any of our overnight stops if not on our return home.

We're fully vaccinated and everything, and certainly Omicron seems to result in milder cases than other variants especially when vaccinated, but it is also often seems to be asymptomatice.

Not worth the worry and concerns.

We'll plan for some time next year.

I'm quite happy to ignore a word that comes out of his mouth. The worst leader Canada has ever had. The travel advisory is a distraction from the OECD's report that Canada will have the worst economic growth in the next 30 years in the developed world.

If I had to shut down my business in England because of one death and 65 people in Hospital, I'd be facking furious.

There are currently 65 patients in hospitals in England with the Omicron variants of coronavirus, according to the UK Health Security Agency.

However, the number of deaths remained unchanged at one.

Brace yourself, i'm sure it's coming to Ontario and BC as well. Quebec's already started.

Wasn't it? Do as we say, not as we do
Trudeau travelled from Ottawa into Quebec over the weekend to meet up with his family at their official country residence of Harrington Lake.
I believe Ottawa was his place of work so I think that fits my description of crossing the border to return to the family home and is so very different to other examples mentioned.
I liked the recent one. A Day for Truth and Reconciliation where all the overpaid got a day off. The working class of course had to work and the Prime Minister went to Tofino on vacation because it was more important to him. Or is that another home to work thing for you?
No, that was a different kettle of fish for which he was rightly criticised.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this variant is a storm in a teacup. Highly transmissible yes, but no worse than a really bad cold. Hopefully we dodged a bullet with Omicron. The original COVID that slowly suffocated you was some scary shit. I fully agreed with that lockdown.

Its absolutely ridiculous.... the world's governments have lost their minds.... and the media just amplify it and make people anxious and full of fear for nothing! I think anyone can see now that the threat level is very very low with Omicrom... a couple more weeks will confirm that... but the fact there are 95000 cases every day in the UK (majority omicron) and there has only been one death from it kind of says something.... it says to me calm the f*** down!! this is the bog roll saga all over again!

The over reaction is going to be even worse here! everything is about to 50% capcity again in Ontario (already is in Quebec) and in the Uk the pubs are still packed and they have 70 times more cases more than Ontario. I think in general people have had enough..

Im going out tonight with work friends for a few drinks, making the most of it before its all screwed up again!

So Premier Doug Ford has announced ..
No drinks after 10pm from Sunday... bars, restaurants etc., must close by 11pm - reduction to 50% of capacity and no dancing permitted.... that'll put a dampener on those places that have sold tickets for New Years Eve..
The sale of alcohol will be restricted after 10 p.m. and consumption of alcohol in businesses or settings after 11 p.m.
*but over 18's can get the booster shot now.. provided it has been 3 months since their last vaccine...
https://news.ontario.ca/en/release/1...nse-to-omicron

Starting Monday, December 20, 2021, individuals aged 18 and over will be eligible to schedule their booster dose appointment. Appointments will be booked three months (84 days) after a second dose as the province urgently expands booster eligibility to millions more individuals.
