Thursday news dump

You know, the weather out here on this island in the North Atlantic may be problematic (it’s, like 6 degrees outside right now and there are still patches of dirty snow in my backyard), but I am thankful that I live in a country that took this shit seriously enough. And, as much as it pains me to say it, Trudeau is doing a great job. Even better is that our province, Newfoundland, has finally enacted one of the best back-pocket reasons for living here: the ability to shut down the borders to tourists, allowing us time to ride out the zombie apocalypse living on fish, berries, and root vegetables. God guard thee, Newfoundland. We have had very few new cases the last few weeks and only have a handful of active cases. Not letting people in (can you believe tourists were already showing up with their mainland breath and sneezes?) will hopefully keep things this way. So all this to say, while I will still wear a mask for our once weekly shopping trip to buy teen chow and etc., I will not fear for the safety of my vulnerable family members while doing it. Thanks, Canada and NL.
