  1. That's....exactly what's going on right now though. Sooo we're in agreement?
  2. The economy isn't just about the money. It's the structure of our society as we know it. You make it sound like it's a simple matter of greed.
  3. If we completely kill the economy, many many more will die. People just don't get it. We can't all hunker down until there's no trace of the virus or we get a vaccine and then flip a switch and go completely back to normal. We have to get going now while we can still salvage our society and do our absolute utmost to limit the damage. There's no win here. It's just the lesser of two evils.
  4. This should move and Bond should move to November 20. It would be nice for Bond to have that one-weekend headstart before Thanksgiving.
  5. I sneezed the other day in a store and everyone looked at me horrified. It was the funniest shit ever! I'm like "People do just sneeze, ya know?". Sheeple, I tell ya.
  6. I meant more for her views on the subject in general. I havent followed the situation since the other day when it first surfaced. So many other things going on that it gets overwhelming, to be honest.
  7. Nice! Went to a park with some friends recently. I dont think I've ever appreciated such a simple thing more. How about theatres in Ontario? Any word?
  8. And people gave me sanctimonious scoldings for not taking the WHO seriously. @Lordmandeep what do you think of the government of Canada maintaining their allegiance to the WHO and not their own internal health authorities?
  9. I'm very familiar with the Lindsay Shepherd incident and have continued to follow her via True North. You're absolutely right that Canadian Universities don't have the reputation for intolerance that US Universities do. It was just frustrating to read about even a small example of it in the news today. I was pretty impressed with the response to the Laurier thing. It feels like Conservative Canadians are more willing to speak up and fight back in comparison to the US.
  10. Onward was fantastic! It's the last movie I saw before theatres closed and I just picked up the blu ray.
  11. Certainly. Luckily, though, cooler heads sorta prevailed and she kept her job.
  12. What the person in question has done should not make the institution look bad. At all. That's the problem here.
  13. Would you say March 13-15 was the last "official" weekend? Asking because I'm just trying to guage your definition of official
  14. No, she's not a mind-reader, but I think one can tell if your students are clearly opposed to or uncomfortable with your views you shared. Maybe not, who knows? I get what you're saying. It makes sense for her superiors to do this on some level. What I'm protesting is the fragility of the students. It would be one thing if the professor was out right discriminatory, but that wasn't the case at all. Saying how you view sex and gender, especially from a biological and scientific standpoint, should not justify complaining to the dean and result in action being taken, whether she lost
  15. That's why I said "or kicked out of their positions". I read the article, she's not happy with it. It's also not as innocent as "hey maybe you should step back because students feel uncomfortable. That IS the situation, but it's not innocent. Other views often can make one uncomfortable, but they're just views. She made sure to tell the students that they dont have to see it her way at all. She's just clarifying her views. She also firmly believes the complaints didnt come from her students at all. So she basically got shoved out of her role because some outside students "felt unsa
  16. Theatres, casinos and churches to open Friday in Alberta, one week ahead of schedule!! Given how well we're doing in BC, we shouldn't be far behind.
  17. I personally don't take issue with the phrase so much as I do the backlash and hate Rowling has received. Then you have things like this... Unacceptable. This is going way too far. People should not be losing their jobs or kicked out of their positions for having their own beliefs.
