Smithers!??? wtf dudes, I thought you were woke?
not really, first of all its the bible belt don't ya know, ^^ home of the CHP, they tell me Rods parents were hippies or SFT, maybe he felt the need to rebel, so besides the CHP I think there are 7 or 8 churches in town they are all anti vax, all must meet so no suprise about the big out break at the christian school, I think they closed it at some point duno if its open again?
then you got people who go to camp so they work at site C/ CGL/ Bruce jack and probably some others, lots of work rigs with Alberta plates, so that is a perfect way for the Covid to get around
But to be fair I know local counterculture/ woke types/ vegetable swapping hippies who aren't vaxed, i've seen one of them at a party chugging off a pop bottle full of water cut with the LSD she bought off some sketchy dealer in a bar but no way she is gona take a vax. So those are some good reasons why the vax rates are lower than averageand Covid is getting around
I was talking to an MD at the bike area and asked are things getting better wutup ? She sez no the Covid situ is not getting better, after 18 months people are still not getting it, ferinstance if half a family has covid instead of the whole family quarantining half stays home and the rest keep going to work or school or whatever, she said we will see how things shake out in a couple weeks, that was 2- 3 weeks ago AND ... things got worse
my buddy who owns one of the craft brew tells me about the people whining in general about being denyied service, so they try to sneak in with a doctored QR or trying to get him to rebel against the health edicts, so we nod at one another and go oh yeah that person of course.
He also told me the heath dept was in twice yesturday checking (and becuz they like his beer) so not following the health rules is not a good idea cuz a business could be shut down for the next 3 months until the current edict expires
apparently things are better to the west but pretty suck from here to Alberta
