I live north of Barrie, and I had to run into Barrie this morning to grab a textbook for my wife, on the way back I got stuck in a ton of traffic going up Highway 11. This got me thinking - what is the government going to do when literally thousands of people flaunt their rules over the next two weekends?
It's going to be 20ish and sunny this weekend, and though there is potential rain it's supposed to be 18-20 for the long weekend as well. People will absolutely be going out to beaches and parks all weekend.
Now, while I feel the outdoor restrictions are stupid, by the letter of the law something like sitting at a beach - especially if there are a lot of other people around - does not count as essential, and thus could lead to a fine. So what's the government going to do? Will officers be out dispersing people from beaches and parks (despite allowing full-scale protests with f'n bouncy castles to happen in the past)? Will Doug Ford simply wag his finger and blame "young people" for the extended lockdown?
And if they don't crack down on these things, which I doubt they will, how loud with the complaints be from golfers (and golf course owners), tennis players, disc golfers, and everyone else who can't do what they want to do because of the stupid rules?
This is going to be a fascinating and maddeningly stupid couple of weeks.
I am dreading this summer, between the fireworks and the ATV people its going to be fucked
The Jazz’s team plane ran into some issues upon takeoff and immediately turned back to Salt Lake City after an engine failure.
