From $15 to $68. HBC's #TeamCanada mittens were an Olympic icon. In fact, fans bought new pairs every year.

Now, under Lululemon, the mitts are too expensive, some fans say.

@_manuelavega has the story:…
For Thunder Bay resident Katie Girard, the $15 HBC gloves are a yearly stocking stuffer she receives from her husband. This year, she didn't ask for them.

“When they’re $70, that’s not going to happen with a family of four," she said.…
“I think the Lululemon clothing was cool, but it’s not something that you would see everybody wear outside in the regular world," Girard said. Living in Northern Ontario, the price increase plus delivery hits "two-fold" she adds.…

Your first look at the new #TeamCanada x @lululemon Olympic uniforms (spoiler: they’re good), Leanne Delap writes.…
Lululemon took the reins from Hudson's Bay, which had designed the uniforms since 2006 (except for 2016, when DSquared did the honours). Lululemon's Olympics term begins with the 2022 Beijing Winter Games and ends with the 2028 Summer Games in Los Angeles.…
All the items can be customized: hoods zip off parkas and vests can be shortened with leftover bits turned into quilted scarves (even travel pillows!).…

The 3-day finale of #yyccc 2017-2021 was lit!!! It’s hard to believe the writers were able to get so many great things resolved. Also, so many cool things have been set up for the next show: 2021-2025 (which will start filming on Oct 18). Here’s my recap of the highlights: 1/24
The finale opened w emotion: 1) #yyc-based members of the #TokyoOlympics/#TokyoParalympics #teamcanada were honored. 2) tributes to the retiring members of #yyccc, @DruhFarrell @EWoolleyWard8 @ChahalGeorge @Ward4Ward1 @CouncillorKeats & @nenshi, induced tears & good vibes. 2/24
After almost exactly 4yrs of work initiated by my learning about #BenefitDrivenProcurement @FCSSAAoffice’s AGM right after the 2017 #yycvote, getting an NoM passed by #yyccc, & development shepherded by @momentumcalgary’s @HareCourtney, we’ve approved a great policy!!! 3/24

For all its photogenic sweetness, rowing, at its highest level, is a contest in suffering.

#TeamCanada's Hillary Janssens and Caileigh Filmer went through agony for the ecstasy of bronze.

#Opinion by @dfeschuk…
Janssens and Filmer stormed to a commanding lead in the early going and led the race at the halfway mark of the 2,000-metre course. They were eventually passed by a dominant crew from New Zealand and a surging duo from Russia.…
But the Canadians were able to endure the pain — not to mention the late challenge of a fourth-place crew from Britain — to finish third and deliver Canada’s moribund rowing program its first medal of the Olympic regatta.…

Picking up this project after a half year’s absence. Now that Iam is six months older, he’s ready to evolve. That’s how this works, right? Image
He is no longer baby he wants power Image
Iam’s move set is pretty dubious for contests, but in his new Kirlia form he certainly looks cool… Alright buddy, time to get frosty 🥶 😎 Image

Minister, your tweet is patently false and you know it.

Your government got unlimited spending powers for vaccines from Parliament in April—almost a year ago.

You have the money, but your government got duped by China. That's why we don't have vaccines.
What your bill actually does is make today's astronomical deficits permanent & boost the debt limit to $1.8 TRILLION—double 2019 levels.

Putting your risky experiments on Canada's credit card will not secure our future.
Spreading false information, as you are doing here, is not in the spirit of #TeamCanada.

The CPC, and their enabling press & surrogates, wish us to believe they haven't behaved like Trump's GOP. That they haven't copies Trump tactics, to try to get it to work in Canada as well.
Here's a screenshot I made of a quote-tweet from just after the CPC leadership win, that indicates otherwise Image

1/4 In this all-Canadian #COVID19 #TugOfWar, the virus is attempting to pull us back, but we can’t let it win, we can’t lose our ground. #DoYourPart - Don’t be the one that let go of the rope on #TeamCanada.
2/4 To keep #COVID19 ↓ we need all Canadians working together with #publichealth, especially young adults aged 20-39 years who account for the HIGHEST INCIDENCE RATES ACROSS ALL AGES during the past 2 weeks.
3/4 Young adults MUST get in the game; of cases reported to #PHAC (Jul 15-21), incidence rates in 20-29 year olds were 14.4 (males) and 13.8 (females) cases/100K population, followed by 9.4 and 7.0 cases/100K in 30-39 year olds.

1/14 #PublicHealth Contact Tracing 101 & YOU: Achieving and maintaining low levels of #COVID19 activity is crucial for minimizing illness and deaths, but it also preserves capacity for #TestandTrace to bring the epidemic under control.
2/14 If we think of #COVID19 cases as small fires (and contacts like dry grass waiting to ignite), local #PublicHealth are the firefighters and case isolation, contact tracing/quarantine is like dousing with water to control the blaze.
3/14 The more fires there are to put out, the greater the risk that #PublicHealth capacity and resources will be overwhelmed trying to get to all the fires before the wind shifts and starts an uncontrollable blaze.

1/3 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: it is now 100 days since Canada reported its 100th person with COVID-19 and we now have over 100,000 reported cases. This is a good moment to reflect on what the latest numbers mean for Canadians.

3/3 To Keep #COVID-19 ↓ we MUST keep #publichealth measures ↑. Go OUT SMART: #PhysicalDistancing ↔ 2 m from others, #handwashing, #CoughEtiquette + AVOID crowds, closed spaces and close-contacts. #TogetherApart

1/8 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: Today, I am taking a moment to reflect on the updated numbers. Although we read and post these numbers online everyday, we can’t forget that each case is a person, with family, friends & community.
2/8 All have confronted illness & uncertainty; some have endured painful separation during severe illness & hospitalisation and too many have suffered the unspeakable pain of a loved one lost to #COVID19. #COVIDloss #COVIDCoping
3/8 As I take a step back to reflect on the human stories behind the numbers today, I want acknowledge the lives lost and offer my deepest sympathy to those who continue to grieve their loss the deepest. #COVIDloss #ProtecttheVulnerable

1/5 #COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: another weekend is ahead & reopening continues, but the ever present worry is that if we move too fast, relax too much, #COVID19 will rebound. We’ve got to be mindful of the hotspots!
2/5 Nationally, more than 50% of 🇨🇦’s #COVID19 cases are now recovered and daily case counts continue to decline but there are still active cases in 9 provinces. Québec & Ontario continue to report most (~ 95%) new cases & deaths.
3/5 Hotspots in and around our most populous cities, #Toronto & #Montreal, continue to smoulder, as #COVID19 exploits inequalities, taking hold in communities who experience overcrowding, lower incomes & health inequalities.

2/4 Quebec & Ontario continue to report the bulk of new #COVID19 cases (~90%) and deaths (~95%) in Canada, but their daily case counts have also declined, by 6% and 10% respectively over the last week. #KeepItUp #TeamCanada
3/4 #COVID19 is a stealth virus that can spread before we know we have it – even as we get out more, we need to #StayApartTogether to keep ourselves, our families and all Canadians safe. #DoYourPart #ProtectTheVulnerable

1/8 This weekend I am reflecting on what 🇨🇦’s #COVID19 cases and deaths mean in human terms. There is so much behind these daily numbers, it is almost impossible to encapsulate in words.
2/8 Each one of the cases counted has been an illness, striking fear and concern in a person and their family, friends and community. Each death has been an incalculable tragedy – requiring goodbyes from a distance. #COVID19
3/8 It is in these unimaginable tragic situations, that we are most thankful for everyone on the frontlines of this crisis. Offering comforting words, human connection & healing touches. #COVID19

1/4#COVID19 key concerns in 🇨🇦: As the weeks of #StayAtHome continue, Canada’s #physicians thank Canadians for their efforts but want to remind all Canadians to NOT stop doing what is vital to maintain health.
2/4 🇨🇦’s #physicians couldn’t be prouder at how Canadians have taken on #publichealth advice, while adding a dash of creativity and vigour, while keeping #StrongerTogether with music, humour & the magic of kindness. #KindnessMatters #TeamCanada
3/4 Even w\ #COVID19, #healthcareheroes are there to address your health issues. Virtual appointments may be possible & a whole range of precautions are in place to prevent spread of COVID-19 in healthcare settings.

1/10 Today I presented an update on #GOC modelling that includes two types of approaches: 1. forecasting for short-term predictions & 2. dynamic modelling for hypothetical “if, then” planning scenarios. #COVID19
2/10 In forecasting models, #GOC uses real data from #COVID19 cases in 🇨🇦 to make short-term predictions of the number of cases & deaths we might expect if #epidemiology drivers & #publichealth measures stay relatively stable.
3/10 Today’s #GOC forecast model gives a short-term prediction out to May 5th of between 53,000-67,000 #COVID19 cases & 3,300-3,900 deaths, but ↑ cases in high-risk individuals can ↑ case fatality rate, leading to underprediction.
