“I’m going to drive my parent to a medical appointment in X community”

Oh, ok

So let’s use golf courses as an example, they are all still open. You think people gonna stop golfing outside their health region? Lol

Huge fine for non essential travel outside. new border signs on BC Alberta border. warning Albertans to stay home if here for non essential travel like vacation.

So, these are the tonnes of bricks that Horgan is going to use to deter non essential travel within BC and between provinces?? Hmmmm.

gg to those who live in Burnaby and work in Vancouver. There's a chance you'll get fined because you're travelling from fraser health to vancouver coastal health. The province can just setup base at skytrain stations and fine everyone on the trains

Hopefully, Horgan can employ those who have lost their jobs .. hospitality/restaurant industry to go to Translink stations and checkpoints to have these nice conversations with people. Obviously, officers like Cain doesn't have time to do that, he's busy making our streets safe.

Sure, let's restrict people from travelling from one city to another but let's continue to allow people to fly/travel into the country.

This is absolutely fucking ridiculous.

I've been a supporter of this government through the entire course of COVID, but this is it for me.

You allow international flights from all the places in which these variants come from, but you're trying to tell me I can't go camp, or stay at a cabin on the island/interior?

Guess what Horgan, if I'm a retired boomer living in a house I bought 20+ years ago out of the city, it sure as fuck easy to "stay home" with a beach or campground minutes drive from you.

When you live in a condo in the city, and we haven't been able to air travel in over a damn year now, good luck telling those people to "stay in your region".

Go fuck yourself.

My trip plans will go forward just as scheduled.

Hard to believe the level of incompetence we're seeing. Wow

Let's completely ignore what's been shown to work for other countries, and just do random shit that has only one result - pissing off your constituents.

I've listened to the high-up's in my company speak about visiting their vacation homes on the Coast, Interior and Island during this entire pandemic.

We've heard of party members in governments in each province visit their vacation homes abroad, and within Canada, especially lake country in Ontario.

Bonnie Henry literally took a flight to visit her family on the island during the Easter holiday.

You think those same people who own vacation properties will be hanging out in town?

No fucking way.

This is classism at its finest.

Visited the BC gov website this afternoon looking for pharmacy locations. Tried to sign up at a few Shoppers and Pharmasaves without any luck. Ended up getting an appointment for Wed from an independent pharmacy.

Pretty quick after all said and done.

It looks like once you register depending on your postal code you might be able to book right away.

If you're in an area with high infection rate you'll get it quicker.

Or am I totally missing something?

I registered my parents at the same time 55+ and it took 3 days to get my dads appointedment booked, he got the Pfizer shot today, and my mom for some reason had to wait 5 extra days to book her appointment for this friday. Took 2 weeks total from registration to actually getting the vaccine.

Is it random what shot ur getting when registering?

Oh hey we finally got travel restrictions. A year late and not implemented in any logical way, but at this point I'm not surprised.

From what I've seen it just depends what the vaccination centre is using that day, parents had to go to different vac centres (availability) and each had a sign outside listing which vaccines they were using (both were only offering pfizer)
