I keep having this argument with people. "It isn't Pallister's fault...people aren't following the rules!".

Well, when your rules are inconsistent and make no sense, people look at them and decide to ignore them. It is really hard to convince someone to follow rule A (no visitors at home!), when rule B (but you can meet with friends on a crowded patio!) directly contradicts it. It gives you no credibility.

It is like parents giving warnings of punishments that never come. Eventually the kids ignore them. (guilty...parenting is hard)

As was said on the radio today, hard to take the threats about enforcing fines and restrictions seriously when 500 people show up at the Forks for an anti-mask rally and only 20 people get ticketed.

Yeah no kidding eh? Claiming incompetence is a bold strategy. Don't think it's the best one.

Well.. apparently I was wrong about going to remote learning. Why in the hell would we have to an emergency to prepare other teachers for remote learning and completely change our afternoon plans? We rushed to have things ready to go for other teachers for Monday. What a waste of time for all of us.

Sorry to misinform everyone.

No worries. Pallister hates teachers. This way he got to ruin your day and ruin teacher's weekends as they worry about what Monday will bring.

There are some reports ( CTV )  saying  it's still being debated. They may do it Monday.

I suspect they realized it can’t be done in a day and will be announced next week. I hope as someone said Elementary stays in person and all other go remote. Although I. Not really convinced it does anything. Make this kids remote and they will gather and socialize more...

I do elementary and we were preparing plans. Perhaps that doesn't mean much, but that's a pretty high number of staff's time that would be wasted if they don't switch. I guess our stuff could always be used for an eventual switch to remote, but I don't understand why there would be an emergency rush then. We could do a much better job preparing given more time.

I think you were bang on. They're giving the system an extra week to adjust and will likely tell us on Monday or Tuesday about the pending change.

Like Alberta who never closed K-6 schools until today, Kenney knows his base wouldn't be happy as school is only convenient babysitting for a lot of parents. So, elementary schools were the last to be closed. Palliser is afraid of a revolt if schools close.

I am a teacher and also immunocompromised. I got my first shot this week. It was neither being a teacher, nor having an autoimmune disease that qualified me to be vaccinated. My autoimmune condition puts me in the same risk group for death/hospitalization as those over 70. Haven't had any bad reactions other than some shoulder pain. With my second dose I'll have to be especially careful as adverse reactions are a lot more common for people with my condition. Even though I am at heightened risk of adverse reactions, I am 100% looking forward to a second shot.

900,000 Americans Estimated To Have Died From COVID-19, Study Says
Public health experts agree that official COVID-19 death tolls are undercounts, but there is disagreement over how high the actual tolls are.

Around 905,000 Americans may have died from COVID-19, according to a new study that arrived at a substantially higher number than the official government tally of 577,000 U.S. deaths.

https://winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/province-lowers-covid-19-vaccine-age-eligibility-1.5419766

WINNIPEG -- Provincial health officials have lowered the age of eligibility again for COVID-19 vaccines, after dropping the age to 40 on Friday.

All Manitobans, aged 35 and older, can now receive a COVID-19 vaccination. For First Nations the age eligibility remains at 18-years-old and up.

 

Appointments booked for the wife and myself. Such a relief this is actually happening.
