$1,000,000,000.00 (that’s right, BILLION!) for 3000 “affordable” housing units? Really?
Do the math.

No, Mr. Phillips.....drunk dialing your ex is a “mistake”.
Yours was a premeditated and carefully executed scheme.

Mr. Ford is equally pathetic in being outraged only after this debacle became public.

Actually 2020 was fairly good from my perspective.
Had the highways pretty much to myself for a good chunk of the year.

Do I believe we’ll all be vaccinated by September?
Sure.
Only the year is in question.

2019: Stay away from negative people.
2020: Stay away from positive people.

I think everyone deserves to be vaccinated before everyone else.

More fun with math!

Population of Canada- 37.5 million
Number of Covid vaccines administered to date- 1,000,000
Elapsed time since first vaccine administered- 7.5 weeks

That’s nominally 134,000 shots / week

Let’s assume the required doses are actually available.

34 weeks remaining until the end of September
Let’s say only one half of all Canadians decide to get vaccinated
That means we need to be vaccinating at a rate of slightly more than 550,000 doses / week starting NOW.
Don’t forget that the current vaccines require 2 doses, so we really need to be sticking 1.1 million arms /week.

Or, if you’d prefer, at our current rate it will be more than 2.5 years just to get a single dose into half of the population.

But aren’t we ramping up our capacity?
Sure, but that’s a LOT of ramping up and when it inevitably doesn’t happen all the known and as yet unknown variants will be blamed.

Still think we’ll git ‘er done by September?

90 days between shots?? On who's authority???
Certainly not the manufacturers.
CDC doesn’t back it up either.
I haven’t found a single source that does.
Enlighten me....please.

The fact that I don’t know everything about everything continues to annoy the fuck out of me.
