1/4 During the months of restrictions, schools, workplaces, businesses and other public settings modified spaces and implemented protocols and policies to reduce the risk of #COVID19 spreading. #COVIDLife #COVIDLiving
2/4 As individual Canadians, we likewise modified our behaviours and became adept at practicing personal protective measures including #PhysicalDistancing, good #HandHygiene, #CoughEtiquette & #MaskOn where appropriate.
3/4 The challenge now is to stay the course, no matter how weary we may feel, because #PublicHealth efforts are not enough on their own; keeping #COVID19 at manageable levels in #Canada DEPENDS ON ALL OF US. #SlowBurn #AllinThisTogether

1/5 Here is a short check list of the top things we all need to be doing to improve our position on the #COVID19 defence and to get #Canada back on the safer #SlowBurn:
2/5 #StayHome and away from others if you develop any symptoms of #COVID19, even if mild. Consult your local #publichealth authority for information on testing in your area. Find out more about symptoms here:…
3/5 Rethink your bubble. Limit your #ContactBubble to just the people who are in your existing household and/or your small, consistent and trusted in-person contacts. Smaller is safer. Quality over quantity. #COVID19

1/3 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Today, in lieu of a daily in-person update to the media, I have issued a Monday statement on how Canadians need to help #PublicHealth by improving our COVID-19 defence game. See my full statement:…
2/3 With 875 new #COVID19 cases reported across #Canada yesterday and more expected as weekend numbers come in from some provinces today, we are just now seeing the transmission that occurred up to two weeks ago.
3/3 Now is the time to improve our adherence to personal protective practices. #PublicHealth authorities can’t solve this without Canadians on the defence, we all need to work together to get back on the safer #SlowBurn. #BePartoftheSolution

Canadians are notorious apologizers. It spills from our lips in a nearly endless variety of scenarios.

You won’t find people in any other country in the world who will say the word “sorry” to someone who is clearly in the wrong. Image
This is a uniquely Canadian phenomenon. So unique, in fact, that the term carries legal weight in the province of Ontario.

The “Apology Act“, passed in 2009, is a direct result of Canada’s overuse of the word “sorry”.
See, once upon a time, lawyers in court were probably able establish guilt quite easily.

All they would have to do is prove someone apologized at the time of the incident and presto! the verdict would swing in their favour.

I've been working on a series of neighbourhood-level #COVID19 #Canada visualizations to track the incidence of the virus in some of Canada’s largest cities. @CoulSim has #Montreal covered, so I started with #Toronto. My progress so far. Thread🧵⬇️
By now, we are all aware of the exponential growth of cases in #Ontario in the last few weeks. This is not restricted to #Toronto, but the city certainly led the pack.
Percent change in 7-day rolling average of cases compared to one week ago:

Ontario: +74.3% 📈 (188.6/day ➡️ 328.7/day)
Toronto: +63.3% 📈 (61.9/day ➡️ 101.0/day)

1/3 The ongoing increase in #COVID19 daily case counts in #Canada indicates accelerated epidemic growth. Now is the time for each of us to redouble our efforts to slow the spread of the virus. Increase your #COVIDKnowHow…
2/3 All Canadians need to #BePartoftheSolution: keep your number of contacts low and consistently follow proven effective measures to slow the spread: maintain #PhysicalDistancing, #handwashing and #MaskOn, as appropriate.
3/3 We’ve come too far and lost too much to give up now – let’s reconfirm our commitment to work #TogetherApart and redouble our efforts to knock #COVID19 daily case counts back down to the #SlowBurn. #BePartoftheSolution

The situation in Mi'gma'gi is escalating.
Nova Scotia has issued a total of 985 licenses to settlers to fish for lobster. A boat fishing under one of those licenses can have up to 375 or 400 lobster pots, or traps.

Even by the most conservative estimate, settlers are working with roughly 367,125 lobster traps.
Conversely, Mi'gmaq have issued a total of 5 - that's right FIVE - licenses to Lnu fishermen. Each of those licenses allow fishermen to have up to 50 lobster traps.

Even by the most conservative estimate, Mi'gmaq are working with roughly 250 lobster traps.

How many Employers result in Permenant Job Layoffs because they can't commit to hours...

A #BasicIncome is also a means to protect these workers from loosing Weeks to Months of Income before they qualify for benefits. It's FASTER than EI. It's FASTER than Welfare.
How many mothers need to work 2 or 3 jobs just to pay the rent and bills? Sacrificing #FamilyQualityTime is not helping our society increase benefits of life by not having enough time for family outings, and experiences that can benefit creativity in the workplace.

We are always looking for volunteers!

So if you would like to join us, please head on over to our website and click on the contact us button.

However as of late we've seen an increase of requests for food hampers and individuals asking us for assistance with other things such as Utilities, Rent, and Medication.

We have done a little bit of everything to help the people who are struggling, the disadvantaged as well as single families and seniors too.

To give everyone an idea of our hamper program, here is the run down.

I might be the last one on the population flag map bandwagon, but I’m pleased with the result! Thanks to @StatCan_eng @StatCan_fra for providing nearly *half a million* polygons to select from.

#cartography #gischat #QGIS #canada @CanadianGIS @GANSorg

(Details in the thread.)
Over the last couple of weeks people have been posting their population flag maps, so I thought I’d try my hand at creating one for Canada. I figured that with detailed census data, I might even be able to include a reasonable facsimile of the maple leaf.
So I went to download the boundary file of Canada’s 56,589 dissemination areas, the smallest geographic area for which full census data is provided. That’s when I discovered that Statistics Canada also provides a 'dissemination block' boundary file.

The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, as is documented in the following timeline.

However, before you jump to the timeline, please read this invaluable introduction which will
tell you who the Rothschilds are as oppose to who they claim to be.

The Rothschilds claim that they are Jewish, when in fact they are Khazars.

They are from a country called Khazaria, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now
