I intend to...

Re: Merry Christmas everyone

Today was white!!

It is not very often that Vancouver has a White Christmas, but we woke to about 3-4 cm of snow, and cold temperatures so it is going to last for a few days.

Re: Passports

It is a little more complicated right now, due to Covid, as I found out a couple of months ago.

Re: Arrival testing mandated again

We all make our own judgment as to whether we can travel safely, whether that is within our own province, across other provinces, or internationally.

Re: Arrival testing mandated again

:goodpost:

But unlike Gozit, I think this is a good post for what was said BEFORE the last 2 sentences.

I fully support the idea of travel, we also have the money to go wherever we want, and...

Re: Arrival testing mandated again

As this mandate is caused by the new variant, Omicron, then I doubt that you can wriggle out of taking it.

Re: BC implementing 5 days paid sick leave in 2022

We got 12 days a year sick leave, any unused rolled over. I worked less than full time, so I amassed 10 days a year, most of which I did not use. Then I had an...
