  1. None. Glad to see you booked one. I believe it was the opposite. Oxford university conducted studies on all ages and in England had a higher proportion of elderly in their studies. As has been said just about all have near 100% efficacy against severe illness or death. Give me whatever jab I can get as soon as I can get it. That is AZ on Monday.
  2. Was so disgusted with the first period I decided to take the dog for a walk. Quite enjoyed Paul Edmonds call of the second period.
  3. Seems like Winnipeg is about 3 weeks. Rural sites much less. Have a cousin in Carman that became eligible yesterday called and had an appointment in 40 minutes. Had to get in the car and hustle.
  4. Winnipeg has its own share of Covidiots too. Two videos circulating of incidents of a couple attending a Canadian Tire and a Home Depot without masks. https://www.reddit.com/r/Winnipeg/comments/mkabrc/anti_masker_at_home_depot_polo_park_gets_taken/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf https://www.reddit.com/r/Winnipeg/comments/mk8ae8/anti_maskers_in_grant_park_canadian_tire_being/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
  5. Seems to me that Ehlers has been pretty quiet this week. I feeling that changes tonight.
  6. I can’t remember where I heard it but I am pretty sure I heard that the Flames have been shorthanded more than any other team in the league. Dirty or poor discipline? I’ll let you decide.
  7. If you are referring to the Quebec National Research Council plant I believe the deal is to produce the Moderna vaccine long after they have said we will all be vaccinated. I wonder why they didn’t make use of the empty NRC buildings in downtown Winnipeg... Oh yeah, Winnipeg isn’t in Quebec...
  8. Couldn’t stay up and watch the game, saw the score and Copp’s 4 as soon as I got up. First thing I thought was was Wheeler hurt that bad and Copp took his spot on the first? Nope, but glorious none the less.
  9. A couple factors to consider. As the age limit gets lowered each year represents many more people than the group before. The number of people 65 is many more than 70, 63 and 64 will be even more. Even with a steady supply of vaccine these changes will be less frequent. Secondly out vaccine supply is not consistent, not even remotely so. EU, USA and India all have or working on ways to bolster domestic supply by curbing exports. I hope it doesn’t come to it but I won’t be surprised if we don’t see a resumption of steady supply until May/June once the EU is much farther along in its program a
  10. I said IF sold properly, the whole idea of what it replaces is exactly the key. Small government conservatives would be in their glory if they truly understood how many programs and union jobs could be eliminated. Current Liberals will never push it too hard as too many of their friends would lose. Much like the idea of defunding the police. It would be great to get some of that money to the proper social agencies and remove that work from law enforcement scope but I don’t see it happening. Would require a massive initial spend to save money years down the road but they all know that
  11. Lots of examples of this have been posted already and I agree with them. Here is one other way, if one looked at a Minimum Guaranteed Income from the idea that the overall cost is less than 1000 other social programs than would be eliminated it would be easy for fiscally conservatives to get behind. Liberals and the Left never could because they wouldn't be able to stay in power as too many of the special interest and friends would become redundant.
  12. Wasn't this the same story in Quebec with a recent Federal Election, the one that brought Trudeau to power in the first place rings a bell. A 20 year old that had to cut her spring break trip short to come home and get sworn in or something?
  13. Without Bloc still having a virtual lock on Quebec I see a similar situation to the last election happening again. Calling an election anytime soon is just a waste of tax payer dollars, so an almost certainty it will happen.
  14. I’m not sure if this has been posted before or not but Drs Manitoba has put up a great vaccine related site. https://www.manitobavaccine.ca/ The provincial one is solely based on age and not any of the new health related criteria for the AZ shot from Drs to pharmacists.
