Have you considered doing some Virtual Assistant gigs? That would allow you to set your own hours, and it may lead to something permanent with one of the companies you support.

Re: Coronavirus

Re: Coronavirus

I think it's peace officers at the NB borders. Regardless of who they are, I expect that if they knew the child was living in Quebec they would have reminded the doctor about the 14 day quarantine...

Interesting. Originally he said that he'd gone to collect his daughter, who was living in Montreal, and who he brought back from there and put into daycare in Canada. Guessing she was infected...

Re: Move to New Brunswick or???

In your position, job and somewhere to live, I'd give it a try. If you don't like NB it will give you a chance to look around other areas and at least you won't always be wondering "what if?"
