This is interesting. Take a look at when mask mandates ended in the provinces, and the trend of hospitalizations for Covid-19 in Canada.

First up: Alberta and Saskatchewan, ending mask mandates Feb. 26 and Feb. 28, respectively. Mask mandates end just before the next wave. 1/6
Next, British Columbia. Mask mandates end March 11 2022. Right at the trough of the previous wave and at the beginning of the next. 2/6
Manitoba, New Brunswick and Newfoundland end mask mandates March 14 and March 15, once again choosing the exact bottom of the trough of the previous wave. What amazing timing! 3/6

• 1913, you required us to have a permit to carry a handgun.
We complied. There was no discernible reduction in violent crime.
• 1920, you required us to have a permit to possess any firearm, regardless of where it was stored.
We complied. There was no discernible reduction in violent crime.

I’ve never shared these pics, I was mad they were taken at first. I am sharing now to try and wake some ppl up. It’s easy to see the # of people on ventilators and gloss over it. Seeing a loved one on a #ventilator torture. This is my dad. A 🧵1/ Image
This is why it looks like for the first 7 to 14 days. It violently shakes them, you can’t help but imagine how much it hurts them even though your brain tells you they are sedated. You hold their hand but its like they aren’t there. You have no idea if they will make it. 2/
They are so weak you don’t know which outcome to hope for. After the 1st fewdays the dr says if they leave the vent in their throat it will permanently damage them, so they cut their neck to to a tracheotomy. You think the first day you saw them was the worst. You are wrong 3/ Image

🔔 Dr. Nicole O’Byrne was one of the very first high profile Frederictonians to support me in my first campaign to represent the people of #Fredericton South in the Legislative Assembly in 2014

Like me, she... 1/

#nbpoli #frederictonnb #explorefredericton #gpc #cdnpoli
2/ ...found that Green principles lined up nicely with hers, and she was a vocal champion for me. I trust Nicole with my vote.

In #Parliament, she will advocate for the urgent needs of #Fredericton families, our community...

Hey Americans. We need immigrants & would love to have you. Here’s my plug for #NewBrunswick, Canada. Safe, affordable, and pretty much COVID-free. Free healthcare, cheap university, and very very little chance your kids will be shot at school. #movingtocanada #Elections2020
In capital city #Fredericton, average family detached home costs $189K CDN, which equates to $144K US. That’s right. Did I mention your US dollars go 30% farther here? Check us out by following #frederictonnb on Insta. Fredericton has 90km of bike/running/commute trails too.
You might also consider Saint John, aka #saintawesome. Huge opportunity here and amazing waterfront urban neighborhoods and suburbs. This was our backyard when we lived there. Amazing urban scene and great restaurants. #movingtocanada #Elections2020

For each #Province and #Territory in #Canada, here is the help that was offered to those living with #disabilities. This will include the #Federal help offered as well as any hoops #PWDs may have needed to jump through to get it and whether CERB was clawed back or not.
This is based on my own research, and if anyone sees anything I missed or may have gotten wrong please let me know.
Let's start with #Yukon
According to several articles, eligible families on #disability supports we're to get up to $400 to help with costs until August. Unknown what eligibility was.
#CERB was exempt from clawbacks.

This was the #AtlanticBubble 500 million years ago – underwater! In fact, Nova Scotia wasn’t even land back then. It was sand, silt and mud at the bottom of an ocean.
#nspoli #cbpoli #capebreton #novascotia #AtlanticBubble @NS_Museum @NS_Energy_Mines ImageImage
It wasn’t until continents collided 400 million years ago that these sediments were lithified (turned into rock) , squeezed, folded and thrusted up into mountains – eventually becoming the province we know today.

You can see the west coast of modern #Newfoundland and northern #NewBrunswick outlined on this map but all of #Atlantic was off the coast of the continent Laurentia which hosted most of North America.

#NewBrunswick is ONLY province in 🇨🇦 where, since early April, its govt has allowed MDs to treat early #COVID19 pts with safe/generic #Hydroxychloroquine in the community & monitor via tele-medicine


COVID-19 deaths in NB: 1
#COVID19Canada #medtwitter
2/ “If we prefer waiting for #HCQ RCTs, it’s very possible that #COVID19 storm will be behind us & that we’ll be too late. We have decided the right thing to do is to use our judgement as MDs, as clinical specialists.” —Dr Gabriel Girouard, Infectious Disease MD in NB #medtwitter
3/ Update: NB had halted outpt #HCQ for early #COVID19 w/in 2wks coinciding w/HC warning re cardiac toxicity. Too few pts enrolled to make conclusions. Only French media reported. HC hasn’t issued new stmt. Now know: no HCQ cardiac toxicity in COVID19, even in RCTs at high doses.

Hey #weather research scientists! We are looking for your expertise! Are you interested in wind/temp profile at night? Are you using or wishing to use doppler on wheel? We could have something to propose to you! #severeweather #aeroecology #DOW 1/n
I'm a research scientist in #forest #ecology at the @cflscf (@NRCan). With a high-expertise team, we are looking at the dispersal patterns of the most important pests in eastern North American conifer forests: the #sprucebudworm. 2/
@cflscf @NRCan #Sprucebudworm #outbreaks occur every ca 30-40 years and can last 5 to 15 years. The last major outbreak (1969-92) covered 55 M ha (yes MILLIONS !) and resulted in tremendous losses in the forest sector. (below: area defoliated in 1975). 3/

150 victims of the #Titanic are buried in 3 #Halifax cemeteries: Fairview Lawn, Mount Olivet and Baron de Hirsch. 149 have #headstones from the Hanson #Quarry in #NB. A #Dal prof spent 15 years figuring out where the stones are from cuz there are no historical records.
#nspoli Image
The stones and the #quarry were tested for #mineralogy, texture, chemical composition and age to see if they matched. That's harder than it sounds - the original rock is no longer in the quarry (it was extracted) and these features can vary within a deposit.
#nspoli #NovaScotia Image
Still, the analysis suggests the stones, donated by #titanic-owner #WhiteStar in 1912, are almost certainly from there.
The #headstones are 422 million-year-old #gabbro (aka black #granite) and a popular #Halifax tourist attraction.

We often tout #NovaScotia's amazing #geology but all four #Atlantic provinces have great geological sights - partly because we were all connected in supercontinent #Pangea 200-300 million years ago! We're going to talk about some spots in #NL, #NB and #PEI this weekend.
#nspoli Image
This is #AtlanticCanada 10,000 years ago. #PEI was still connected to the mainland - no #ConfederationBridge needed! Sea levels are lower during ice ages because so much water is frozen. It wasn't until 5000 years ago that rising sea levels made PEI an island.

#Newfoundland's #BellIsland had iron mines from 1895-1966. The #NovaScotia Steel and Coal Co. helped open the first one. The iron was made into steel in #Sydney, #CapeBreton. Steel is iron and carbon (which is derived from coal) so #CB coal and #NL iron were a good match!
