Good thing to have in times like this, electricity company being a crown corporation, the government can do more directly.

Reducing rates for everyone by 1%.

Residential customers who have lost their job or income reduced due to COVID will get a three month bill credit worth three times their average monthly bills over the past year that doesn't need to be paid back.
Small businesses that have been forced to close will have their April to June bill forgiven.
three-month deferment to large businesses
Major industry partners such as pulp mills will be able to defer 50% of their bill for 3 months.


Residential customers are also eligible to apply for assistance from the existing Crisis Fund, BC Hydro has had in place prior to COVID.
service disconnections for non-payment have been suspended.

BC Utilities Commission is in discussions with FortisBC
which is a private utility company that provides natural gas and some customers have for electricity to see what they can offer their customers.

They don't show the April 3 payment for me anymore, it was there but now it's gone and only shows the April 9 payment. Others online I have seen some say they have both 3rd and 9th and others are like mine and only show the 9th.


Maybe time to shut transit down for a couple weeks? I imagine other drivers likely have it and don't know it.

Lots of lay offs have arrived and there's talk of giving up rented office space implying that rehiring this year isn't expected. Ontario has implemented a sus law so it's not sate to go our. I'm feeling increasing like one of the pilots in the attic in Allo Alllo.

I can relate. I just changed the insurance on my putt-putt back and forth to work car to storage insurance only now I’m working at home. Whats nice is ICBC has an honour system for returning the plates right now due to Covid so my car still looks fully insured in the apartment parking garage. I don’t think this is going to be over any time soon.

I'm not excusing their behaviour, which is clearly idiotic, but that video is a perfect example of what happens when sections of society are marginalised/ghettoised. "Why do we always have to do what *they* tell us to do?" You end up with resistance to, and rejection of, authority, even when it is for their own benefit. (Because, so often, the authority is not for their benefit but for other people's benefit.)

Boris Johnson, although a bit late to the party, has at least partially recognised that we are one society rather than a collection of individual subsets each with their own agendas.

White police versus black citizenry.. and a lot of police for just one street.
It's a powder keg waiting for someone to light the fuse. Not in this case but someone will somewhere.
And... in the same city...

Default Re: Coronavirus

Some time back I started a thread about secrecy and the lack of openness from provincial government and now some of it is relevant to the current state of affairs.
There have been five or six flights into Moncton where at least one person on each flight was quickly confirmed as having a positive test. The province has either kept quiet or cited 'privacy' while PEI government (one passenger was resident there), airport and airline have since been more forthcoming.

When it first happened - the province's first case, IIRC - the government said they had traced potential contacts and, sure enough, the subsequent 'cases' had a close connection. That was sort of reassuring, but they were not other passengers.

Now maybe other passengers were contacted and warned. But I don't think you need to be paranoid to wonder if there were other people for whom an arrival date and time might have been useful. Someone at the airport meeting someone off the flight. A taxi driver picking someone up. Car rental staff.

There are people who could have come into contact with 'carriers' - even if just next to them at the luggage carousel, maybe lifting a suitcase for them, all sorts.

But now it's emerged that there were people on the flights who were not contacted and the first they knew was the fluke of reading a footnote on a round up of news on the CBC website and realising it was their flight.

Anyone in other provinces aware of this sort of thing?
