We apparently have plenty of money to pay for it.

While we definitely have much better numbers than America, Canada only displays stats per province.  One red dot per province.  America seems to be by county?...many more red dots regardless of the underlying numbers.

That being said...Americans can damn well stay home.

It's like the heat will melt the great Canadian-American wall that could exist. I want it built by beavers btw

Borders are racist and imperialistic...

until you want to protect your own society from outsiders

Bunch of hypocrites

Keep it closed till Trump is out of office and Biden has forced the plague rats to fark right off.

So dont open it until march 2021 at the earliest.

I get it; the US isn't doing a great job.

Still, read a book or something.  That chart doesn't use a linear scale and reports on US counties vs Canadian Provinces.  Cases per population are five times worse in the US than in Canada.  It's not good; it is very bad, but it's not as bad as the image implies.

Why exaggerate it?
 
2020-07-07 12:14:01 AM  
those red dot's should really be place closer to the u.s border doh. i just checked and if the dot had really been in northern Quebec that would mean that 1/4 of that zone died.

I'll be making a significant stocking-up run to the grocery store next week just in case, because between 'schools must open!!!' and 'live with it', I suspect there will be a LOT more push back from the White House this time on any attempt to keep the border closed past July 21st.
 
2020-07-07 12:16:56 AM  
81% of Canadians

The other 19% are the ones that come down to go shopping.

Fine, keep them closed. Maybe people in the border states won't have to deal with Canadians cleaning out their costcos like a plague of farking locusts every weekend.

Those are the provincial totals, so they put the dots in/near the center of each province, and used the size of the dot to represent the number of cases throughout the province. If they'd put dots where the cases actually are, most of them would have just blended in with the US.

I'm in New England.  The New England states should get together with NY and NJ and barricade the Hudson and Delaware river crossings.  Those 8 states seem to have shiat under control.  States to the south and west, maybe not so much.

This is sad because I wanted to take the kids to Disney World in February. That is a pipe dream at this point. I'm trying to think of other vacation spots I can go to that are kid friendly.  Disney Paris? Disney Japan?
America might be trying to save their local economies by opening up early, but they have sacrificed their foreign tourist dollars on the alter of Covid.

They don't report the # of active cases but it works out to 166 (total - (deaths + recovered)). Our population is about 5 million.

This is the chart of new cases per day in Washington state (pop. 7.6 million):

It's farking embarrassing (cue Letterkenny fans) to be American right now.

I mean, Canada's the other pea in our cultural pod. We were carved out of many of the same British/French colonies and Native lands. We do pretty much everything together, sports-wise. Most of their population lives within a day's drive of the border.

If we can't convince them, we can't convince farking anyone.

I was planning to apply to jobs up there and throw myself at the mercy of the Canadian immigration system if Trump gets re-elected, but if that happens, there's a real chance we never get this farking virus under control and the border remains shut.

It is still possible to get a work visa and move to Canada. I assume it is a lot harder than six months ago, but I know people that have done it.

A person might be able to say "I'm from Georgia" and get a pass in. Saying "I'm from Georgia, USA" would get a hard pass with "I'm sorry.  We don't let your kind in.".  I can understand that.

You're right.  It's a piss poor representation of what is really occurring.

But we don't need a map to know the US is a problem for us.  The fact that Americans are crossing our border and refusing to self isolate once they get here is evidence enough that there needs to be further restrictions on who can cross into Canada and it needs to stay that way for a long time.

Those that need to travel to Alaska can take a farking boat or plane from Seattle instead of coming here and spreading covid.

Trump is a true genius playing 153D chess.  He has managed to get Mexico to build a border wall and pay for it and all it took was letting a pandemic run loose in our country.
 
2020-07-07 1:13:51 AM  
The strange thing is that Trump won and the federal courts riled the president could divert military funds to build a wall.
He never even started and nothing was said about it.

No wall needed. Just ask the Canadians nicely not to travel across the border and they'll politely comply.

You can make the bars on the canadian graph 40% shorter and it would be similar on a per capita scale.

I'm not going in with that narrative. I've been watching from the west coast. shiat was cool out here despite our general farkery. This spike isn't just labor day BBQs. The protests started the next day. This is what we get.

"But they were wearing masks". Bullshiat. I've witnesseded it with my own two eyes. Mobbing around chanting loudly in big groups is farking stupid. Doesn't matter about your politics.

Look, if you want to find the reasons for the spike you better be prepared to do a lot more legwork than just outdoor walking protests.  Step up and talk about the indoor openings or STFU.
