Cute propaganda. In reality Bezos's mommy and daddy gave him $245,573 to stop Amazon from failing in 1995, but you'd never know it from listening to our right-wing mainstream media that blames poverty on personal failure and attributes wealth to personal virtue.

Echoing this sentiment for Greater Victoria. Europe does it and they’re doing just fine. It’s time.

In Palestine, israeli settlers will spray paint the star of David on our homes to harass or mark the building to be stolen. It's wild to see it happen to a business in Toronto, foodbenders, that voiced support for Palestine & against racism.

Interested to hear from all the commentators (local and otherwise) who initially denounced these protests as unnecessary and surefire hotbeds of future outbreaks.

Very wholesome moment from today's press release, as a young 18-year-old reporter thanks Dr. Henry for everything she's done for youth in B.C.

None of the cases in B.C. right now are related to people vacationing from the U.S., that we know of.

She says this is because the protests were outdoors. However people attending parties at beaches in the U.S. have been linked to outbreaks.

Were cases linked to protests in B.C.? Dr. Henry says no. There are no cases associated with the protests that took place here. She says in talking to colleagues in U.S., they've also not seen surge in linked to those protests

This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester.

Hi, ER Doc here. If you think wearing a piece of cloth makes it “hard to breathe”, then trust me you do NOT want COVID-19.

Keep your eyes to the skies for tonight’s ‘Buck Moon’ 🌝 The Old Farmer’s Almanac explains that the buck moon earned its name because it occurs at a time of the year when a buck’s antlers are “in full growth mode.”

Amazing! Although saying there's "no controversy on wearing masks" is a bit of a stretch

Oh interesting! Do we know what region they were in and when this was reported? I must've missed it in the briefing.
