riding in the subway with hundred others is fine, but 2 people on a well ventilated 4 seater chair is bad? geez
It is frustrating to see all the inconsistencies... like you can go on the skytrain, go to a strip club, go to a pretty packed restaurant/bar... but then they still have some provincial parks closed. You have store X and Y that each limit 10 people inside the store, ignoring the fact that store Y is 5x as big, etc. Doesn't really add up but I do understand why it's happening... we are in uncharted territory and people and businesses are trying to adapt quickly, and everyone is trying to be cautious and do the best they can to keep people safe, etc.
Whistler creates alot of tax revenue so coastal health is looking the other way. My buddy has had his gravel bike events shut down by the BC govt. Apparently 300 racers on a 100 km course is more risky than the packed lift lines at Whistler.
Today is day... 21? I think. So far, so good. That said, there were a ton of people in the village this weekend, including a Cali-plated car with young kids in it. I've seen a few non-WB people in masks at a distance watching the lift-lines. I suspect government officials are on-site, which makes me happy. The number of idiots who aren't taking mask wearing seriously is insanely low, which likely correlates to our border closure.
I don't think Coastal Health is looking the other way, but they are likely prioritizing based on economic output.
If I were ruler of Canada, I'd probably use that as my top metric as nothing else comes to mind.
