    How is Canada going to get to 75% of total vaccinated? Isn't a third of your country crazy anti-vax like the US? Oh well, at least Europe is opening is opening their doors to visitors. Find out Friday if US makes the list.
    Na even in Alabamaberta vaccine hesitancy is only 25%

    ..and that’s Alberta

    Yeah people seem to be pretty compliant here and are down with being vaxxed for the most part. Seems that the uptake is actually quite good in QC.

    During the announcement yesterday on easing of restrictions the Premier of Quebec (i guess the governor for you guys?) was asked about people coming from other countries and his response was that as long as 75% of Quebs are fully vaccinated people can come here because Quebec society will be protected and there will be less pressure on the health care system. He has no authority to open the border though, that falls under Federal jurisdiction.

    Apparently Canada wants vaccine passports and the U.S. does not. It would be nice if it were a reciprocal deal, but does it have to be? I'm perfectly willing to provide my vax info to the Canadian government if it gets me into Canada. In any event I do think we're approaching the endgame here. I'm guessing the borders will open toward the end of summer. Of course I couldn't have been more wrong when this all started, so my prediction probably isn't worth much.

    Someone I argued with said the vax hesitancey would be the same either side of the 49th,

    I countered that while we also have the nut jobs bothe christian & just plain stupid it would appear there might be much less

    also we don't have any republicans who will not vax for political reasons

    yeah your last guess was a year ago, I am not going to say I told you so but to be fair how could you fathom that public health could trump money ?

    And that's your big probelm ... public health eh

    At the time I didn't figure the U.S. could botch the response so badly compared to Canada. If both countries had been dealing with similar numbers of cases there wouldn't be nearly as compelling a reason to keep the border closed.

    This is a bit dick waving art. as the comparisons in the last couple of months have had the US ahead , way ahead , on the vaccination front plus Canada's numbers in 3rd wave have not been good. Not as bad as US in 2nd wave but as bad as US currently. So dick waving comparison now. Note still way behind US in 2nd shots.
    Thanks to the good sense of Canadians, we’re about to out-vaccinate the Americans

    which year ?

    USA didn't respond poorly they just didnt respond period but as i remember a year ago the feeling was the border will stay open cuz of money or maybe manifest destiny or sft but public health ... no way

    so 600000 American died according to worldometer is about 1800 per million pop vs 25000 canadian dead which is about 650 per million pop

    USA has since got on top of vaxing altho how many people take it is anybodies guess but when you have to pay people to protect themselves its not a good sgn

    alberta is now the NA hotspot for Covid due to stupidity & money

    I think Canada will end up with a higher % of the pop vaxed

    By the weekend Canada will likely have a greater percentage of citizens with at least 1 dose of the vaccine. We're all but guaranteed to surpass the USA by the end of the summer if the uptake rates don't increase down there. Better start dragging uncle Cletus in to the Alabama vax clinic or this ain't never gonna go away.

    Canada today is @ 46.73% with at least 1 dose
    USA today is @ 47.35% with at least 1 dose

    Doses per 100 people in the past week:
    Canada - 6.71
    USA - 3.71

    Note that just yesterday Ontario opened up vaccinations to all people 18+ in Ontario (14 million total pop) so the numbers in Canada are only going to go up exponentially. 2 Million Pfizer doses/week arriving now until at least the end of July. We'll be basically done by then. USA wins the sprint but the tortoise is going to win the marathon. Our dicks are blowing in the breeze.

    Barring any supply issues. Things are going OK. But I can't believe they just turfed the Soldier in command of vaccination supply and logistics because of allegations of sexual misconduct while he was at Royal Military College in the early 2000s. This is fucked. Could they not let him finish his job before turning this into a cancel culture whore show. Fuck.

    It seems a bit unfair to go back to the 90's when the allegations about Justin were just forgotten after "we remember things differently". Though maybe this guy was a real ass at RMC? All the Mil College guys I knew came out a bit weird about women. Had nothing nice to say about the women they went through mil coll with other than a couple who did very well.

    Except they didn’t turf him? He’s still the chief of staff or whatever, he’s just been removed from overseeing the vaccination efforts while an investigation takes place. Seems pretty reasonable to me.
    If all the guy did was expose himself to someone in college 30 years ago, then he should be put back on the job if he wants, and that’s it.

    Get accused of some shit
    Stopped from doing your current job
    Still remain on payroll
    Investigation happens
    Big nothingburger
    Statement released “dude is cool did nothing wrong”
    Back to work


    Also things aren’t “going OK,” they’re going great! Look at the source data I shared. Canada is killing it, especially for a country with no domestic production. It’s honestly going surprisingly well.

    Supply issues?? - those happened when Pfizer was tweaking their facilities to improve production capabilities. That’s long finished, and they’ve been slamming us with massive shipments ever since.

    Canada’s got this. We’re in the home stretch and the people like you and I and leaders (except Ford and Kenney, the fucking morons) have done admirably.

    So sounding positive wife and I can go to the maritimes for a September vacation. And more importantly for me I can ski across the border next year. I have the card but hardly official. Just a couple of stickers and initials.

    Canada locked down with zero fans at NHL games, and the USA having full capacity crowds, and a goddamn free for all in multiple states. Where at the bodies in the streets?

    actualy after a great start last year they opened things up, shit got worse, last summer there were zero cases up narht so they closed things down again last winter, vax will be the great game changer other wise we would be having 4th and 5th waves

    who knows what happened down south but I herd it has been a godamn free for all, they hid the bodies in worldometer, almost 3 times as many dead percapita

    We're generally a little more conservative when it comes to not giving any fucks about other people's lives up here. Sorry!

    Yup, they told me not to laminate it for that reason. As much as I would love to visit BC, I am hoping the border stays closed until the end of Sept so I have an excuse to miss my step moms 90th cake day. Sister is bugging me to attend and I would rather not.

    If i was an American and I wanted to go fishing I would look at AK, I talked to a guy who runs seaplanes at the lake, they are open and ready for bidness but there is none, he said AK was open
