RE: alaska 2021 ???

Orion, very interesting! I've always been a little curious about Canadian politics. Is this just a provincial early election or an early national election? Does the winner take office immediatlely after the election or does the current office holder complete his or her term?

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Moderators, Thank you two so much for encouraging "sourcing." -------------- You are welcome! If there was ever a time we need as current and reliable information/data possible it is now. Our health is at stake and hearsay, rumors, and unreliable information can be deadly. We are thankful most members try to vette their information. The 'tricky' part is what was believed a few days ago may no longer be true due to new information being revealed every few days; so sourcing needs to be as recent as possible.

BCSnob, thank you so much for taking your time to do this; it is much appreciated. You are your brother's keeper, but in this case, your "sister's" keeper. Ha!

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

BCSnob -- You are good (really, no kidding) at sourcing information; so (if you are not too busy) I would ask you if you didn't mind trying to source the following quoted conclusion written by an RV.net member. The inference was as a scientific conclusion. If it becomes too time consuming, don't worry about it; I'll have my physician, Dr. David Leventhal, check it out (he likes doing these things) when I go for my regular check up on Friday. Here it is as follows: "Within fractions of a percent, you are just as likely to become infected in Michigan or Vermont as you are in Florida or Arizona or California. There is scant evidence that locking yourself in your home with minimal contact with the outside world is significantly safer than engaging in activities while taking reasonable precautions. I am not aware of any studies that have shown Essential Retail employees (grocery store, hardware store, Walmart, etc.) or truckers, or delivery drivers or many other people who have daily, yet limited in duration, contact with the public suffer infection rates higher than the general population. . . . ."

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

"Stop it! You're making too much sense." No it does not; not in a national and international emergency; everyone needs to pull together to protect each other; yes, in these times, you are your brother's keeper. Just because this very serious issue is being bantered about in the arena of politics, that does not make it the REAL thing of life and death. The scientists, who have been working with infectious diseases for some 30 years, have managed to prescribe instructions to help save our lives; we should listen to them and only them. And if you need to speak with someone more personal, speak with your family physician (also in the category of a scientist), and he or she will take the time to explain how critical the instructions are for you and let's say your best friend. We have lost already two friends to Covid (leaving a widow and two sons) because they would not leave the Florida Keys and return home; they had the same opinions you presently do. By the way, I could not be more proud of Canada and its citizens in how you as a group have handled this emergency; Early on, I wish we could have had that kind of leadership.

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

MDKMDK, Are you speaking of the 10 percent tariff imposed by the US government around August 2020 on Canadian aluminum coming into the US? Sorry, I'm a little late reading this particular thread.

RE: For Alaskans going S... is snowbirding essential travel?

Tequila, I have great empathy for you. If that is now your home, you should be able to go there. You probably noticed the analogy I drew. If Canadians can go home (even now) from Mexico, you should be able to go home to Mexico; it should not matter whether it is through the US south border or US north border.

Full time, he crossed in early March and did his quarantine alone in a borrowed friend's apartment.

RE: For Alaskans going S... is snowbirding essential travel?

Full time, yes, he has a Canadian Passport (just like you possibly do) but he has a resident card in Mexico with Mexico plates on his car and is retired but has his retirement investments in Canada; there are many Canadians whose home is in Mexico via a resident card. The only thing I can come up with is for him to pay a visit to the US Consulate in BC and discuss what he should do.

RE: For Alaskans going S... is snowbirding essential travel?

I know one fellow who lives in Mexico and currently has his temporary resident card and working on his permanent resident card in Mexico; he is visiting close friends in BC Canada to take care of some personal business and now wants to drive back home to San Miguel, and the US Border Patrol won't let him through to return home, even when showing them all the residency paper work. If the US back in March allowed all Canadians to cross into the US to go home, why would the US not allow him to cross into the US so that he can also go home to Mexico? Just doesn't make any sense.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Chris, I have great faith in the Oxford version of the vaccination out of the U.K. The flu shot we took last year was a highly potent one which was effective for different strains of flu (because of our ages); one of the components in the shot was SARS-related. The SARS-related portion (which is also related to the virus of Covid-19) is the basis early on by Oxford for building the vaccine to defeat Covid-19. Even my own primary care doctor has said because that the SARS component was in my flu shot, I MAY have some protection now from Covid. My strong flu shot is to be taken next month; maybe that will help a little before mass vaccinations. But it looks like Oxford may be only given in Mexico.

RE: Tracking US travelers

noteven, as said by Winston Churchill, while trying to convince America to help Britain out in World War II before the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese.

RE: Latest travel warning

Moisheh, I checked the corresponding Canadian Advisories, and Canada's Advisories don't seem to be as "dire." However, they are originally dated back in July, and this one from US is dated this month, August.

RE: Tracking US travelers

Steve, thank you for being so nice, but I know and you know that nationally the US has been a disaster, no plan at all; there has been disjointed efforts by various states to come up with plans; some states are even banding together to form their own confederacy to devise plans; there is no other way at present; states haven't done that since 1861, but this time there is a very good reason for it.

RE: Firearms to Alaska

hpdrver, I'm scratching my head a little over your comment. Am I correct in saying that "you check your gun on the US side of the border before entering Mexico, right? So why would you not do the same thing in the US before crossing into Canada? Therefore, why would across the border or on the border in Canada, say a business, need to be there to check your gun?

RE: Tracking US travelers

JaxDad, "I guess there wasn't much good on TV ...". Haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! I have to get my mind out of the gutter! Ohhhh, the miracle of birth! Ok. Seriously, India (or even Mexico, for that matter) -- 1.353 billion -- Do you really believe the stats. coming out of India? Even the expats who live there don't believe them. The hordes of so many people living there get Covid, never see a doctor or hospital, simply die where they live, and subsequently are buried with no diagnosis. My Grandfather died in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918; never got a chance to know him; he was a farmer in very rural Georgia and neither was diagnosed by a doctor (while he was alive) nor visited a hospital. Communication was so slow back then, and thus, it was weeks later when the family suspected what he died of. You and I today have great communications and stats. institutions to rely on in our countries (with us, it's the CDC in Georgia and Johns Hopkins in Maryland) which we fight to have politics free.

RE: Covid 19 warning

Tequila, I've had a flu shot every year for a very long time; but as I have gotten older, my doctor has prescribed a stronger flu shot covering more than one strain of the flu virus. Just started asking him questions about what he was giving me last year. Ha!

RE: Covid 19 warning

Philh, "...if one gets a flu shot, they are 35% more likely to catch a Coronavirus." Now, I've spoken with my family doctor and my pharmacist with that same question, and they said no. In fact, they said that by decreasing the odds of getting the flu by taking the shot (my shot is a multi-strain flu shot), it may also help in not contracting Covid. The reason: The multi-strain shot has a SARS-related component in it. Of course, you can't be allergic to eggs. My appointment for the shot is set up for September.
