These idiots didn't learn anything from 2020. It takes two weeks to find out if your restrictions have done anything, but they'd close some things, and then a week later, close some more. And then this spring, they did it again!

There are still anti-mask, anti-vax, anti-lockdown protests.  And large indoor gatherings.   The people who are doing everything right won't make much difference with so many people defiantly doing everything wrong like belligerent 4 year olds having tantrums.

I'm amazed at the people that still won't behave at the funerals for COVID patients. My sister and BIL had to go to his mother's. They stayed outside, masked, until the chapel was empty that they went in privately. They were berated for the disrespect of avoiding the group, with the group not understanding what respect is. At that time my sister and BIL were from a high-incidence area, were concerned they'd be infecting the family from a low-incidence area. The sister and BIL haven't been sick, but half the people at the funeral got sick, and a few of them died. My sister's area is now low incidence, and the family's high incidence. Some change their behaviors, some don't...

"Sources say Premier Doug Ford asked Alberta Premier Jason Kenney to send health-care workers to Ontario to help. Alberta has not yet made any commitments, the sources say.
Sources with knowledge of the request tell CBC News that Ford also made a similar request to Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe."

Not surprised that Ford asked his science-denying Conservatives for help. What a shiat show. May God have mercy on the souls of Ontario.

We'll always have Prince Edwards Island, Canada.  You wore that dress and when you were gutting that fish we caught with the dynamite, the one button came off your dress and I got a peek at your Saskatchewas.  You knew it and you smiled and did that thing with the filet knife "Don't git no idears, Merica.  These fishies need to be preppered, eh?  Put down yer Molson 'n git the grill goin', okay yeah?"

Yeah.  I got the grill going and then you said "I gots me some fishie guts on my legs, would ya lookit at dat?"  and you hiked up your skirt and your legs were as long as Younge Street, they were.  And you smiled and I smiled.  And the seagulls ate the fish.

We (Scotland) have 1/3 of Ontario's population and around 250 cases per day. 20 hospitalisations and 2 ICU admissions per day, but total numbers in both are falling. We have a slight relaxation of the rules tomorrow - basically outdoor socialising in groups of up to 6 will be OK. It will be interesting to see how that works out, but the signs are pretty good.

When the experts told them to do something, they did it half-way. Which didn't work. So a month later, they do what the experts told them to do THEN, and it didn't work, because it is not what the experts were telling them to do NOW.

So then they open things up, because the experts "were wrong about how to stop it"

I understand the economic concerns, share them to a degree. But we were correctly told by the medical experts early on we could shut down for a couple months and take a hit or deal with the virus for years and take bigger hits. We'll be dealing with it for yours.

Well you can thank the Plague Rats in the GTA for this.
The citiots don't give a fack about anything except their own little world.
As soon as the government "locked down" that Friday the highway 400 Northbound was bumper to bumper almost all the way to Barrie with Plauge Rats going to their McMansion cottages in the Muskokas or just traveling in general because Fack You Thats Why.
I'm a truck driver, so I get to see how many jack offs are completely ignoring any and all rules becuase  "This isn't Communist China !!! You can't tell me to stay home, I PAY MY TAXES !!" and "OMG the government is turning into Nazis, NAZIS I TELL YOU!!! They want us to wear masks and tell us where we can and can't go!!"
Then to make matters worse, even with the tens of thousands of citiots roaming the province for whatever douchbag reasons there are the country hicks who have the "Fark Tha Corona, Liberal made up Bullshiat from the Media" so they think its literally still somehow fake and even if it is real, they don't think its anything than the China Flu.
Add in the various Religious Groups who think their particular God of choice will cure them if they Pray It Away so they fill up their Temples of Magical Skyman of Choice hoping a Fairy Tale will make it all go away but only end up spreading it even worse.
So ya...

Not at all.

I have no idea who the liberal party leader for Ontario is or their platform they want to run.

I have a pretty good feeling that Ford will be gone and the Liberals will be back in.

Either way its the same circus of government officials promising everything and then gifting slush funds to family/friends/ect.

I don't think a single governing body is going to win their next election cycle. We are really good at voting people out, and unless the governing party managed to keep everyone happy AND healthy through this past year, they are going to get bounced.

The fun part is going to be the guessing game of how much the voters remember of the other parties. Ontario 'might' remember the fun of a Liberal gov, and decide to go Orange, having been long enough since they tried that.

Yeah right. "Leaf-itis", a painful belief that surely they'll win the cup this year, afflicts far more people in Toronto than Covid-19 does in the entire province.

Ontario changed its provincial slogan before Covid-19. The new slogan is "A Place to Grow."

Unfortunately, the only thing robustly growing in Ontario are Covid-19 case counts.

It's certainly grounds for cautious optimism. 60% of all adults here have now received at least one dose of vaccine, which seems to be working even better than hoped. I think/hope travel outwith the UK is going to stay restricted for quite some time more.

I know few things about the Liberal Party leader. I know his name is Steven Del Duca and I know he looks like a bowling ball if it joined The Proclaimers.

It's not only the Conservative governments. BC is farking things up too, by trying (and failing) to ride the R=1.0 line with minimal restrictions rather than shooting for a "COVID Zero" goal. They won't test, they won't use the federal contact tracing app, they won't lift a finger to do anything apart from giving hour-long speeches about how we all need to pull together and pretty-please follow the rules. And hey would you look at that, the cases keep going up just like the models from two months ago said they would. Oh well what are you gonna do?  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Vaccinations are making some progress but they're nowhere near fast enough to keep up with the new variants and they're also relying on single-dose protection from the mRNA vaccines by delaying everyone's second shot out to 4 months rather than the manufacturer's recommended 3 weeks.

I think the "recommended" interval is only what was used in trials. I don't think any of the trials for existing vaccines deliberately looks at the effect of different intervals. Though the AstraZeneca Clusterfark of a trial did, because those who got a smaller first dose also waited longer for the second, and nobody knows yet which of the two causes produced the larger protection seen.
