Though this article is covid-related I opted to start a thread with it because I think that it will be interesting to see how Trudeau and Biden interact in dealing with this.

I think it may set a precedent on what to expect Canadian-US relations to be for the next few years.

It's possible though. We should have the majority of our populations vaccinated by then.

It may not mean total immunity to Covid, but it will definitely slow things down.

If vaccinations go according to schedule, I'd be open to this, especially given that there tends to be less spread of COVID-19 in the summer months. Personally, I can't wait for the chance to see friends and family again (even if we still need to mask) when the weather warms up.

You haven't been to see your family (and/or friends) at all? Seriously?

Not in person, other than masked visits outside since last October. Last summer, it was possible to go to the park and have a BBQ with family and friends as long as we wore masks and socially distanced.

My daughter has a rare immune-compromised condition, so we're extra careful in who we see and where we go. We also haven't eaten out since last February or traveled anywhere beyond day trips from Edmonton last summer.

I'd say more like around Thanksgiving(s) would be more logical, just to account for any more possible vaccine delays that could happen, as well as the inevitable slowdown that will occur when the huge herd of 20 to 60 year olds that make up the big majority of society start to get scheduled for their shots. We're also looking at the reality that over 30% of Americans are going to refuse vaccinations altogether so that has to be accounted for, not to mention the upwards of 20% of delusional Canadians who aren't going co-operate either. There has to be a strong effort made to keep anyone who is refusing an innoculation from crossing the border because the potential for pockets of new outbreaks being caused by these sorts will remain a massive problem over the next several years.

I'm glad this proposal is coming from Democrat congress members though. If it had come from the GOP members it would have been couched in Trumpian threats (full of incoherent bad grammar and atrocious spelling) against Canada, vowing retaliation against us for idiocies ranging from "caving into the globalists" to being "a puppet state for Soros" to "stealing America's lulz!". That's how degenerate those buttwads are now - there wouldn't be a single logical or remotely sensible thing in their decree/demand, just a bunch of braindead intimidation aimed at us in order to keep their blood-drinking base of illiterates & outright shitheads pleased.

Where exactly do you live where masks are forced outside in a public park?

Reasonable precautions. Anyone compromised like that have endured a tougher time
than the rest of us.

I don't get the type of person who rushes back in to a restaurant to eat as soon as restrictions are reduced. I get it that it's nice to go somewhere, but why flood a restaurant just to say they 'went somewhere'?

I've started to get out and go for walks again, and that's enough for me. I never once thought to rush off to a restaurant (even though I would order takeout) or start shopping at a store just because. I usually just do my weekly grocery run and that's it. The exception being I had to make a special trip to Mark's last week because my boot laces broke for the second time, and they had the heavy-duty laces (and were on sale!).

People need to use some common sense.
