    This seems to be the rational for Ab and NB on their restrictions ending. Not caring so much about case count but only hospitalizations.

    They don't have a ban - they're Canadian citizens.

    But I agree.

You need to file this quarantine plan and the border agents can deny your entry if the plan isn't satisfactory.
    Quoting myself just to mention I did find something on the travel.gc.canada site that made me more optimistic. It states:
    If you do not have symptoms, you may choose to leave Canada before the end of the 14-day quarantine period. However, you must:

    continue to quarantine yourself until your departure date
    wear a mask when you depart Canada
    comply with all regulations for the country of destination
    https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/tr...ion#quarantine

    If you are able to leave Canada before the end of the quarantine that implies to me that immediately turning around and leaving Canada if testing positive should be a valid quarantine plan.

    Actually getting into Canada with the border agents strike, etc. could still be a hassle, though.

    Yeah, I thought there'd be a little schadenfreude over that one.

    Much easier to believe all people tagged on the other team are the only idiots, than to acknowledge that idiots (or examples of idiotic behavior) are found everywhere and that sometimes the person deserving of being called an idiot is looking back in the mirror.

    I'll be glad when the snow flies again and its done being hot,dry and smokey. Perhaps we'll have a more normal ski season, but its anybody's guess how things will unfold in the next 6 months. I expected this thread to die earlier this summer but I'm an idiot.

    I am a Jewish Atheist, so I don't worship anyone including money, because if I did I likely would have become a successful businessman instead of the successful ski bum that I actually became. The tax implications of being a ski bum, with most years on E.I., are minimal.

    They wouldn't have had Canadian vax records because it turns out they're Canadians living in the States (green cards or dual citizens).

    They had fake vax cards/records, fake negative test results, and were bullshitting about their quarantine plan too. If you're gonna go, go big!

    So they're basically Americans at this point then.

    I mean wouldn’t it make sense for them to be Canadians being that the border isn’t open for Americans right now….?

    That being said there are tons of idiots in Canada. Most of them are in this thread. It’s like bugs to a light.

    Fauci could be very successful training politicians. He is a skilled flip-flopper.

    If there is one thing to take away from all we’ve learned over the past 18months is they are all 2 faced liars and in some cases “black faced” liars, no matter what side of the border you are on. Do your own due diligence.

    Can you provide a link to where he said that?
    I know he said "It is very clear now that [vaccinated people] can transmit the infection to others." It's just a subtle difference, but the point is we have always known, and he has always said that vaccinated people can get very sick. If a vaccine is 95% effective and hundreds of millions are vaccinated that still leaves 10's of thousands sick. And when he said what he said he was explaining exactly why he was saying it and why they were recommending changes.

    For context (and the video where he said it) - https://globalnews.ca/news/8079311/c...delta-variant/
    When you measure the level of [the] virus in the nasal pharynx of a vaccinated person who has [had] a breakthrough infection with Delta,” Fauci said, the detected virus level is “high and equivalent to the level of virus in the nasal pharynx of an unvaccinated person.”
    That is not the case with other variants. For instance, the level of virus found in the nasal pharynx of a vaccinated individual who happens to be infected with the Alpha variant is much lower than that of an unvaccinated person. This “strongly” suggests that the Delta variant’s ability to transmit is unhindered by an individual’s vaccination status, Fauci said.
    “It is very clear now that [vaccinated people] can transmit the infection to others.”

    Thanks for posting the actual wording with the actual context.

    Also, why do people always interpret the scientific process as flip-flopping? When more data about an issue becomes available, aren't you supposed to adopt that information and critically consider whether or not that changes your position? Or are we all supposed to hope that our first guess is always our best guess?
