That might be worse than saying they can't come at all

It's a lot easier to quarantine on PEI given my family's property, but either way it's apparently now possible for family reunification. Unclear if they'll allow my partner though, based on my reading of the rules.

I'm told they did recently open a family reunification stream, so maybe there is hope of going home for Christmas.

Isolating sucks, I too would be happy to do it again to see my family. Last time I checked I am prevented from entering PEI even with an isolation plan. Is that a reasonable infringement?

I don't think men* know what Find My Friends is. (* maybe controlling / abusive partners do?)

I'm not saying this is necessarily likely, but the economy is likely to rise, and it could rise less at a rate lower than the mortgage rate. People shouldn't expect the price run-up the 1990 buyer experienced.

In February 2020 had there ever been a 38% annualized decline of GDP in a quarter?

Not sure if these are out for delivery yet, but I've been trying to update my address since April. Is the subscription email monitored?

I believe it was Gorilla Glue, since I recall having a tube of it back in the day.

But the current bank rate reflects near-zero growth of the Canadian economy over the next 30 years so a pessimist might say that a buyer in 2019 has a low chance of price appreciation and/or finding a buyer in 30 years.

I presume you mean "better" from a cashflow perspective, so the answer is that with a 13% bank interest rate in 1990, that house was more expensive per month after inflation than the 2019 house.

I super-glued them back on and have camped over 100 nights in it since then, including multiple torrential downpours, with no issues! Bought the Elixir 4.

This thread is being shared around a ton, for good reason. It's a thoughtful, judgement-free look at how young adults are faring during the pandemic, and the challenges they're facing:

I think you're raising two separate, but valid, points. MEC tried to expand into *everything,* diluting their niche and expertise. Meanwhile their online store really lagged the market, allowing local shops to gain a foothold and erode market share.

This summer I was buying a new tent to supplement my ~decade old and still great Tarn 2. I spoke with former MEC employees and other hardcore campers. The universal advice? Don't bother with MEC, it won't last. I now have my first MSR tent.
