Save the vaccine card onto your photo either as pdf or screenshot, that way you don't need to rely on internet

Wonder what the cumulative amount of CERB collected was for these braindead fucks is. I bet the participants have the highest average dollar value collected/person in the lower mainland.

Basically you need the passport to go to concerts, sporting events, gyms, and to drink or socialize at restaurants, bars, organized parties.

Thanks for that. Someone was asking and I didn't know, figured someone here would.

As for the passport system, it all seems like a big joke. People can't go in to a restaurant and sit at a table as they always have been but totally OK to go to Walmart or Costco where thousands of people a day are through there touching everything in sight? It makes no logical sense. Imagine telling healthy people they can't go the to the gym and exercise to stay healthy..... in the name of health. None of the transmission data from the past supports these measures, gyms accounted for approx 3% of all transmissions in BC if I recall correctly. It also counters data from the likes of CDC that says 70%+ of COVID cases in the US are amongst the obese. Meanwhile the Gov has done absolutely nothing about long-term care facilities which continue to drive up the numbers with outbreaks amongst the most vulnerable of our population. Clown world with clown policy makers - it saddens me to see people blindly cheering it on. However there are a rising number of businesses claiming they won't enforce it, and many more I'm sure who will less publicly do so as well.

Vaccinated or not I don't care but no one should be supporting this system. It's not going to do anything that they're selling, all it's doing is dividing the community. I really feel for those who have legitimate medical exemptions for the vaccines who are now second class citizens. Being denied service for a medical condition, regardless of it being an inoculation or being in a wheelchair, is discrimination.

I do agree that this shouldn't apply to people with medical exemptions, however that is probably 1/10000 unvaccinated people that applies to.
I don't necessarily agree with the whole passport, but again, I just don't care about these people not being able to get chicken fingies.
The alternative is to bring back rolling lockdowns, and I did my part, I'm safe, so why should I stay inside because someone else couldn't be bothered, or just doesn't like being told what to do? That's really what it is at this point for most of them. They'll take horse dewormer or shark nausea medication or put dog toothpaste in their asshole but won't take these vaccines because they are "experimental." There is absolutely no logic in that, and it's just rooted in them wanting to say fuck you to the "sheep" and act like being a contrarian makes you smarter than the general population.

restaurants are already checking for mask, checking for ID for booze, checking if the CC is the actual person... what's one more check on health status. So bottom line, yes, if you copied someone's QR code and / or if the QR code didn't scan properly... whatever....no one is going to really be able to enforce it.
Just like how those who just walked out from the airport when they were suppose to go to the hotel to quarantine.

I can get why they didn't allow medical exemptions because pretty much everyone who didn't get the vaccine would find some bullshit reason to get an exemption from some crackpot anti vaxx doctor out there and the whole system would be pointless.

Going to Walmart/Costco: Keep your mask on, no socializing outside of the people you came in with, get out. Transmission is not occurring through touching of shared objects. Are you still lysoling your doorknobs like it's April 2020?

Going to a Sit-down restaurant: Masks off to eat, socializing in close quarters for hours at a time, strangers within 6 feet of you doing the same.

Gym: Heavy breathing in a small enclosed space with strangers with weak mask enforcement, if any.

They are not even remotely the same and it's pretty obvious why the Retail is excluded but the latter 2 are not.

I know it's not a direct comparison, but tv shows and stuff in Korea, same thing. Everyone masks up, but when the cameras start rolling celebrities take their masks off while staff & crew are still masked.

it could be that the Met Gala guests were all tested, or that contractors/companies have different protocol than guests.

but yes, the optics of this are very poor and it just gives fodder to morons like Glen Greenwald. It's like Obama's birthday party thing.

Now, all that said, at some point we have to return to a semblance of normalcy, it may look odd right now but baby steps, right?

Ah, so you think people follow the rules to a T in places that support your argument and enforcement is weak in the places that don't. Gotcha

I guess my question to those who think the passport is a good idea is.... what happens when this doesn't work (which it won't it's effect will be negligible). BC currently has 278 people in hospital with 139 of them in critical care. Let's say those numbers stay relatively the same which is what's important over simple positive test numbers. Right now BC has 77.026% of eligible population with one dose and 70.198% fully vaccinated. We are now within a couple weeks of the 'herd immunity' numbers they wanted back when the vaccines dropped. So...

In four months are you going to cheer on a passport extension if it didn't do anything to change the hospital numbers?
Are you going to support an expansion of the passport to more areas and businesses?
If that passport requirement changes to making it mandatory to get a third vaccine and everyone is suddenly on the outs of eligibility are you lining up for another shot?
Will you line up for a fourth shot?

yes, you smoke for 20 years and get lung cancel, you pay.
you drink a bottle a day and get liver failure, you pay.


you get cancer out of no fault of your own, the government pays
you break a leg walking down the street or playing hockey/skiing, government pays

sure it's not black and white and would be very difficult to actually put into effect but people should be held responsible for their actions otherwise they'll continue to be a drain on the system

Super stoked on this! The opioid crisis is over! "Hey Jim, it's John again from Vancouver Fire. This is your eighth shot of Narcan, you still owe us for the previous seven. Jim? Tick tock man wake up. Steve he's not responding, doesn't have any money or a card on him. On to the next I guess." We're gonna have so much more money for bike lanes!

We literally cater to those people.

A while back there was the story about the native guy who was on the list for a liver transplant but couldn’t stop drinking. He then went to the news and they spin it into a discrimination story.
