Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

Prior to opining so critically & seemingly so all-knowingly, one ought to have first ensured that the object of one's scorn hadn't in fact had a choice, at short notice, of where to overwinter.

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

Well I've just had to look that up on google, and I definitely wouldn't presume to even begin to compare my 2021 DQF plight to what occurred to those poor people at Theresienstadt during WW2.

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

I've already tried reaching out to the CBC, the Globe n Mail, & to the Toronto Sun, snd strangely nobody ever calls/emails back; so I now strongly suspect that there's probably some kind of a federal...

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

I haven't seen Dick Dastardly & Muttley for decades, haha. There's www access here, but we're only allowed to relate things to friends & family; so yes, I'm taking the considerable liberty of...

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

Meanwhile fully-vaccinated travellers comme moi are being held at DQFs around Canada, which are kept under a news blackout federal gag order because Canadians would be deeply unsettled by what goes...

Re: Dual national applying for British Passport renewal

That's curious, as when I last renewed my U.K. passport (2012), & also my Aussie passport (2016), I don't recall being asked by either of those authorities to provide them with any copies of my...

Re: Coronavirus

If the feds really cared about Canadians' public health right now, they'd open the border to let folk drive into the U.S. border states to seek vaccination.

Any Canadian can easily get vaccinated...

Re: Coronavirus

If we leave early, sans the official release paper from PHAC on Day 15, then we can be charged for violating the federal Quarantine Act. So although I'm in Canada, I'm actually still under federal...

Re: Coronavirus

Would happily try thy 'Wings Quarantine,' but if we're caught drinking in here we get charged for possessing contraband inside a federal facility.

Re: Coronavirus

Neither the border guards (CBSA) nor the pubic health folk (PHAC) could've cared less about the border-crosser's vaccination status when I crossed back into Canada 11d ago. And they only cursorily...

Haha, I love it, and I do cordially welcome you to the full 'DQF Experience,' brought to you today by the reigning Triumvirate of Incompetence & Inadequacy: Trudeau-Hajdu-Tam.

An older car of mine that may not start easily after 6mos of being parked over this past winter (while I was down in the U.S.).
Then a long drive in order to...

Re: Coronavirus

Fully understandable economically / household budgetarily; I'd just prefer not to have to have somebody else's religion go down my throat while I'm in Canadian federal custody is all. Almost as...

Re: Coronavirus

Re: Coronavirus

The feds have actually sub-contracted their DQF catering requirements here to a private company which provides us with "halal" food (koranically blessed?), & they're apparently quite within...

Re: Quarantine for COVID 19 discussions.

Am currently a 14d-detainee inside a Trudeau-Hajdu-Tam DQF. Would be happy to answer any questions from anybody who might themselves end up being locked up inside one of these places.
