Draymond Green questioned why the Raptors would paint Black Lives Matter on their bus and said it shouldn't matter to them since it doesn't affect them as Canadians. Boucher took offense and replied with "So if you're black and Canadian you not directly part of it? Is a black Canadian not a Black men? SMH. I thought we were all in this together"

Working at CIBC they had been very reasonable for the duration of the pandemic, until yesterday. Everyone who could work remotely was able to, and a few weeks ago they maintained that until things change our health and safety are paramount and we will likely not go back until 2021 or a vaccine is available, or the state of emergency is lowered
Then yesterday they decide on the 24th, back to work, no exceptions. People have some legitimate issues, childcare, health, their own fear and respect of the virus, but while they claim in writing they are empathetic there is literally no empathy in their actions.
There is no clarity behind this decision, and they are acting like it is a great service to us by giving us a regular schedule again. I suspect that CIBC is just bending to the whims of other banks, so I wanted to know if any other employees are experiencing this because I am incredibly shocked at the change in messaging and the total 180 on any regards to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Americans get a bad rap for only speaking English. It's usually blamed on Americans being lazy or our education system having failed us, but there's a more likely explanation that doesn't usually get brought up - it's just less practical in America.
If you live in Germany, you live close to people who speak Dutch, Danish, Polish, Swedish, Italian, French, Slovak, and Slovenian. It's very useful to learn at least a couple other languages.
America is a giant country thousands of miles away from countries that speak most other languages. Besides Spanish and in some areas French, you'll have little need or opportunity to use other languages in America. It's not worth the effort for most people.
Americans don't learn Dutch for the same reason Dutch people don't learn Thai.

Hi! You might recognize me as some random neighbour, friend of a friend, or even server at your local watering hole. Unfortunately, I am one of a large number of canadians with a disability.. potentially more infuriating is that it is an invisible disability. So far in life my type 1 diabetes hasn't cost me a foot, and my multiple sclerosis hasn't cost me my mobility. What it has cost me is a decade in post secondary before my MS diagnosis and the subsequent drop in income possibilities due to fatigue, dizziness, nausea, amongst a handful of other intermittent issues.
My monthly income prior to covid was ~800$ before taxes and I am ineligible for disability support for 80% of the year in my province due to my wife's income. The federal government realized that y'all need around $2000 A MONTH to get by and my province offered a one time 1000$ payment which I couldn't collect due to being on disability support (which I was no longer receiving). So w... keep reading on reddit ➡
>The Canadian restaurant industry faces losses of up to $20 billion as more people plan to work from home in the future and food-buying habits change, a new study shows.
>Dr. Sylvain Charlebois, the ‘food professor’ with Dalhousie University, said the study found that many people are enjoying working from home more than they thought they would at the beginning of the pandemic and plan to continue doing so a year from now.
>People working from home tend to cook more and eat in, dramatically reducing the supply of patrons for restaurants, especially in urban cores, he said.
>For every dollar that a home cook spends on groceries — even with the recent price hikes — the restaurant customer has to spend $1.40 to get the same amount of food, Charlebois noted.
Many people are aware that Tim Hortons is no longer a Canadian company.
However I have found many people don't know that both A&W and Harvey's are Canadian companies. A&W's history specifically is confusing but interesting. All A&W restaurants in Canada are owned by a Canadian company and majority owned by employees of A&W Canada.
Which other fast food chains are Canadian?
As a Canadian, I consider myself American second as well. I see the United States as my second home and many Canadians feel the same. The cultural and economic influence that America projects to Canada has benefited us greatly. Our livelihood is dependent on our southern neighbour’s military and economy. I hope the American empire lasts 10,000 years. Seriously, Americans are innovative and brave. I love the United States, thanks for inventing basically everything we use in our day to day lives. The seething Europeans can live in their tiny 1,500 sqft house and laugh all they want
At least 1.5 million Canadians have moved back in with their parents, according to a national survey by Finder.com. The findings, released July 21, could have ramifications for the multi-family rental sector, since the vast majority of those moving or planning to seek shelter at home are renters.
Survey results reveal an estimated 2.8 million, or nearly one in every 10 Canadians, have seen their living situation change due to the COVID-19 crisis. Approximately one million Canadians (4%) said they are thinking of moving in with family.
