I went for a drive during my lunch break because, you know, that’s what you do these days.
Alberta has double the cases per-capita of provincial counterpart, Ontario, a province with more then 10 million more people in it.
I also saw on the news last night a Virologist saying that Alberta has more cases per capita right now than in a lot of the US States. Now, I haven’t seen an actual stat for that, and I can’t find one online, but if he was telling the truth and not making a generalization, that sucks….
It’s so bad here other provinces are starting to restrict people from our province because we carry a risk of basically exponentially worsening the entire country if we province hop.
There are more cases in this city, presently, than in the entire province that my parents live in. So… I really don’t blame other provinces for wanting to tell us to just fucking stay home. (Yes, language is necessary because I’m in that kind of a mood)
Basically, we’re going to be here a long time to come.
So I went for a drive. In the snow. I saw the mountains, I saw a couple moose, some very confused geese, a pretty lake. It was… I guess as good as it could be.
I wore shorts and flip-flops in protest of the current weather. I didn’t go inside anywhere because… why bother.
