So let me guess, the protocol is too let everybody in from infected countries?

In case of an outbreak? how about prevent an outbreak? Canada must implement stricter border control to prevent the spread of conronavirus to Canada!

"We don't need to call it a public health emergency to put those systems and structures into place." I know doublespeak when I hear it.

Prepare to be laid-up and locked-in for a month. Banks may close. Schools may close. Have a plan.

I’m concerned that we don’t even have enough doctors for everyone to have one at the best of times in BC. It takes hours to see an emergency room doctor, especially in rural areas. Some businesses aren’t allowing staff to take sick days without a doctor’s note, but doctor appointments are hard to get. These conditions make it hard to believe that we are prepared.
