Large parties Saturday night, incoming restrictions Monday afternoon.
That's one way to get the vaccine quicker. They call it the Whistler method.
I am in my mid 20s. I had Covid last year, and it was one of the worst illnesses I've ever had the displeasure of experiencing (and still experiencing long-term effects). This is frustrating and upsetting, but mostly it's just saddening. These people are young like me, yes, but they're not like me.And I don't think it's all about age: the people who put their own selfish needs above others like this are going to do it whether they're 20, 40, or 70. It's all the same people.
Tell me you're stupid without telling me you're stupid.
Soooo, I just witnessed a grown ass woman in a diaper...
I live close to the beach and went for a walk last night, at around 8 PM. I stayed away from people and walked at street level. There were SO many people. Everyone sitting on the grass were socially distanced and just enjoying the sunset, many wore masks too. But on the beach and close to it? Drunk people cheering and dancing,.it was packed like it would be during a non-pandemic summer. There was a street artist juggling on a unicycle and people were standing around him like it was a festival,.cheering him on, shoulder to shoulder. I had expected there to be people. And the last few days, there have been more folk around,.but always socially distanced. Last night was just shocking. Young people,.drunk, partying and not staying socially distanced. Hundreds of them.(Denman was absoloutely packed too, long lines at all the food places. There wasn't even a possibility to stay socially distanced on the sidewalk, that's how packed it was).I am not saying it is everyone. Because it isn't. But I am quite sure that 90% of the people on the beach don't even live in the area here and just came down to party.
*in David Attenboroughs voice*And at the height of a Pandemic, the neanderthals could not fathom social distancing or bear to wear masks. Their social instincts of jumping on one leg and breathing into each others mouths overrode other more important priorities.edit: for bear! :) Always appreciate using words correctly.
That mansion owner with the big bright spotlight is probably like, "You see? This was the shit I was trying to avoid. Give me back my light and I'll make them all go away!" hahaha
Remember when the park board had closed streets and parking spots? People couldn't get there so they stayed home.
My industry (live events, music, clubs, festivals) is never coming back is it?
“Incoming restrictions Monday afternoon”I’m guessing you’re a recent transplant to BC?
I noticed one of my high school friends on Facebook posted they went to the party last night. They flew back into Canada 5 days ago and were suppose to be quarantining with another housemate who tested positive 2 days ago. Snuck out and went to the party. They intentionally went to spread covid.I reported him to the non-emergency line.
They are partying now so you can't go to work in May....
I wonder if BH realizes these people don’t watch her covid updates.
And they left garbage scattered all over the beach this morning as a final FU. Charming... 🙄
Looking forward to Bonnie asking us to 'be kind' on Monday
it took a pandemic to turn Vancouver into Fun Citywould you look at that
This will never end.
So Horgan was right
I’m not even angry about this. If the government isn’t going to enforce restrictions, then why should they expect the idiots to follow the rules?I’m just going to focus on what I can control, and for now that means avoiding popular outdoor spots where people congregate.
My sister in California just called us the “Miami Florida of Canada.” It’s hard to argue with her when this stuff is happening.
That makes me sad :/
These assholes are why my surgery may get delayed 🙃
Look at that pile of trash. And then there's also the garbage with the bud light box.
As someone who was just released from hospital yesterday for covid, this saddens me.
I'm sure Tuesday April 20th will be much calmer.
Imagine if Bonnie drops the nice act and turns into a drill instructor.
Hey! Im 21 and why wasn't i invited to this party? Because im not a fucking idiot. They really should just close the beach after 8 or something.
I have more respect for that massive pile of trash in front of them.
These guys r prolly worse than the actual anti maskers. This is like sending a huge fu to dbh and health care workers
Very frustrating for the vast majority of people trying to the right thing. What is scary is the Canada just passed the USA for covid cases per capita. That is truly a bad statistic.What would be the best methods to halt this behaviour? I have lost patience with blatant disregard of public measures. Does one increase fines? One cannot deny health services, though i wish these folks could be identified and denied health care if there is a decision to be made regarding who gets a hospital bed. Deny access to provincial financial programs?Likely the most effective would be to confiscate their phones for a period of time...
*two weeks pass*Dude, why can't I taste things?
That's just great. Don't they know that the dominant UK strain infects and hospitalizes young people?Seems like they're operating by the old understanding of the original virus, whereby they'd be fine even if they caught it.
How about, hear me out, instead of punishing everyone, we just FINE these people a fuck ton? Why should the rest of us lose the little bit we have left for selfish assholes the government won't punish
