The businesses aren't lives. They are employment. Sometimes you need to realign your employment with the realities of the market. If they can function at lower capacity and survive, great. Maybe higher prices work as many are strictly a luxury and with lower capacity people may switch to a longer cycle time resulting in the same yearly outlay. If they don't have a remotely viable strategy other than adding to the JT dumpster fire (cough CFL), put a fork in them. They can decide whether to re-emerge in the future if a viable normal exists. Continuing to pour money into something with no viable future is idiotic.Yes, last time I checked, farm animals and crops still have a slightly lower value then human lives.
Culling a lot of businesses is fundamentally simple. Tell them they can't have enough customers to cover their overhead and government won't be filling in the deficit. Boom, gone. I don't know if Kingston has business licences, but I would be strongly contemplating pulling Binh's license if that was a possibility. That one idiot (either dumb, short sighted, greedy or all of the above) caused a train wreck on the local economy. Probably millions lost in knock-on effects.Oh, can you cull a business ?
When he said cull herds, I took it he was referring to human lives.
Why even open? I know the owners of a daycare and with the limitations on capacity and very low amount of parents wanting to send their children during this, they are still closed. They sent the ones who need care to another further daycare to help their numbers.A friends daycare took on over 600K in debt during this mess so far. They have continued to pay their staff full wage and expect gov't to pick up the tab. F that. Stupid operator, go bankrupt. There was no viable employment for the vast majority of the workers, they should have been punted to EI/CERB immediately. Daycare is a very low margin game, there is no way they will ever be able to cover that debt.
They even brought in non-local nail care workers to cover the workload!What does this even mean?
Pretty useless map, hasn't told me which part of Toronto to avoid. I am the dissaapoint.They even brought in non-local nail care workers to cover the workload!
Unless you think a Kingston nail salon normally has 10 workers on duty
They actually plot cases of outbreaks on a map and these are called "hot spots"
geographical areas that appear to have experienced elevated levels of exposure, I didn't make it up.
let me google that for youPretty useless map, hasn't told me which part of Toronto to avoid. I am the dissaapoint.
let me google that for you
click on Toronto Neighbourhood MapsIf you think you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, find out if you should visit an assessment centre and where to go.www.toronto.ca
and cover your face when you sneeze too! you little rascal
Oy!The maps do not necessarily reflect risk of acquiring COVID-19 nor where cases were exposed to the disease.
Got a link for that source?The way I heard it a **** load of dizzy females from an infected part of Toronto went there to have their nails done, because everywhere local was closed.
Wow! If they thought their bottom line was hurting before this, then they could be in for a big surprise. Max. fine is $100k and 1 year in the slam! They probably won't get the max but still won't be a happy result. Not sure if they would have charged just the business or also any knuckle heads they found inside as well. Who wouldn't know that going inside a club/bar to eat & drink is not yet OK?Well, with any luck, this was their farewell party and AGCO will cancel their liquor license. Idiots.
A nightclub on King Street has been charged with failure to comply with an emergency order after police found 125 to 150 people were allowed entry inside.www.680news.com
Haha, it gets better. Part owned by a dragon (Michele Romanow) and her twitter description is " you may have seen me on TV or telling you to #staythefuckhome. " I guess she forgot to add "unless you are coming to my bar". Her net worth is north of 100M, she really needed to open so she could afford to eat.Wow!

I was contemplating that approach many many pages ago in this thread. The kids have very little contact with their grandparents right now due to Covid and the grandparents aren't young. There is a significant downside to continued isolation and an even bigger downside if we infect the grandparents.A lot of people are disappointed when they test negative / don't have antibodies implying they've already had it. I think some people have reached a point where they'd rather just get it over with so they can stop worrying about catching it. Sorta like parents having chicken pox parties, except you can die.
