Are you calling the person who confronted the covid rule breaker a crybaby and a softy. The confronting person showed some courage. I wish more people in the Fraser Health District would show courage and stop the social gatherings which spread COVID so we can get back to a normal life.
Fraser Health District only? WTF? No Slurrey jokes to go with that?

I'm confronting you on this. What you say?

This is a good article, from a Whistler perspective. Issue is, even the writer here is, to some degree, virtue signaling. https://dailyhive.com/vancouver/whi...0fFYCEpCKH7Kk5gEWcHn48IbTn-D6a5V1ooYeKisn0mcQ

In the last point, there is acknowledgement that the spread is due to Staff Housing living conditions. BTW, we also had a nasty spread of STDs up here, surprise, in Staff Housing. But I digress. She likes to point out that the bars are closed, but you know what's not? Pubs, restaurants, and liquor stores. That segment of our small community is still going out, then at 10:00, they take the parties back to staff housing...yet they like to blame tourism on the spread? Give me a fcuking break.

The biggest bullocks is when they moan about lift lines in the morning. Well, they are actually physically longer because of the 6' rule people are actually trying to follow. We all want the mountain to stay open, after all. There are also many a gondy going up w/ one person in the cab, not 6, and certainly not 8. That also makes the line much longer. I haven't waited in one all year, I wait till 10:00, and walk straight onto the only chair that still uploads from the village, cause even "smart" locals still, bafflingly, would rather wait in line and use a Gondy...to participate in an outdoor sport...where you will be using chairlifts all day long. I digress...but guess what? Last year, and the year before, and the year before, this segment of the community was also complaining about lift lines, and tourists. Why you ask? The truth is they don't want some tourist getting the goods before they can get it themselves. But now, the vast majority of people in the long lines on powder days are still just Whistler, Squamish, and Pemby people calling in sick. The excuse of "Tourism is causing COVID uptick" is a cover for the truth, that they don't like waiting behind tourists to get up first. Same as it's always been.

The new normal is actually Hypocricy. The actual ability to have your cake and eat it too, welcome to COVID rules 101.

I’m with you in this one Dude. I haven’t been perfect with the rules but pretty darn good. outside is as close to safe as there is to allow my kid a normal existence. That’s where I stretch the rules. Has it irritated me some of the people that seem to not give a feck because they don’t believe or they are healthy and not scared or they aren’t having their life fun effected? Yes, sometimes it gets me wound up for a few min. But I’m no snitch and I don’t think those people are brave either.
Tattle culture and video taping people over little things is ridiculous. if someone is having a 50 person house party, they probably deserve it. getting in a guys face in a store for not having a mask? No I’m recognizing he’s a cnut and has always been one. He doesn’t need me to tell him. I will intervene if he were to get abusive with someone else. If the store owner tosses him, he deserves it.
Stop worrying about everyone else, do your part as that’s the only thing you can control.

See? And you are a complete socialist commie! Me, a capitalist, antigovernmental pig! Even we can agree, as long as we aren't being hypocrites!

Im sure most of you have heard about the St James Well Trivia night spreader event. In Port moody. Guy that runs it was a pretty good close friend through high school and into my mid 20s. HIS dad is the silent owner. What Bonnie didn't mention is that he is doctor of a well known practice in the Tri cities. They figure over 100 have contracted it from that night. Doubt they get a fine.

Remember the whole "Do more" a couple of weeks back?

"Be kind and let others know they are breaking the rules" - did people really expect a different outcome than what @Dude is giving a good go at here?

Not sure.

Where does a snitch that publicly rats out guy that is not not wearing a mask OUTSIDE- and effectively tries to ruin his life - fall on the scale of “Be kind and let others know they are breaking the rules"?

This new snitch dominated landscape is so confusing.

...BTW, I'd post the video, but looks like Admin took it down. You know, on account that he's a local, well known to have mental illness issues, and the Cnut taking the video was actually trying to ruin a man for standing outside, socially distanced, and not wearing a mask. The only "rule" he was breaking was a Vail Corporate rule established for re-opening skiing. Yeah, being a dick, but not worth some Cnut trying to ruin his life over.

I need to get a FB, twitter or instagram page so I can post videos but in the meantime I will post here and hope the ADMIN does not ban me for failing to tell Surrey jokes. My alzheimers prevents me from remembering any jokes except those about Surrey soccer players and those jokers are old.

There is an anti-mask rally tomorrow in vancouver and the organizers include some characters with extreme views. My favourite is the meditation guy with the Hitler moustache who was fired from his teaching job for not keeping his racist views out of the classroom. Here is a link from unmasktheright with info on some of the shady people behind the anti-mask rally. https://www.unmasktheright.org/profiles-in-extremism

There is no doubt the far right seems to have way more psychos than the leftist crybabies.

Greeting TTP, been a while.

@Dude as per usual; the wisdom flows. I'm enjoying this "safe space" to see respectful dialogue without stage 5 freak outs or people seeking to cancel someone. Far superior to FB or Twitter.

This morning walking to my office downtown from parking garage I'm yelled at from passer-by for not wearing my mask (outdoors, near nobody). "White privileged mask-hole" was the comment.

Lovely.

To be fair, you were yelled at like that probably the last time you logged into TTP... it's not just a covid thing.

:wa:

Disappointing to see two seaparate tv reports yesterday about anti maskers in local stores, refusing to wear masks and then harassing staff who are mostly women earning minimum wage. Dude was right when he referred to these types as "psychos".
Rule #1 through this and life is: Don't be a dick.

These poor people working at stores, making a pittance, have to be on the front line answering to either corporate policy, government policy, or both. It's really not fair, certainly not what they were hired for, and this style of protest is worse than just yelling at the wind.

There are any number of Government buildings they can take their protest to without causing undue stress to people just looking to make a bit of a buck.

Rule #1 also applies to the asshat who yelled at JBN. So now we are denying people the right to clean, fresh air? WTF? The world has gone mad.

I've never got this. I suppose I'm somewhat "anti-mask" but rules are rules, and I'm not a dick so I wear it when I'm asked to by health order or by private enterprise. If you are anti-mask why not just not wear one and say "I have a health condition"... Dear Dr Bonnie advises the Karens and Darrens to accept this response as fine.
