Only 111 cases in Ontario today. That's amazing. Hopefully we can dip under 100 in the coming days.

I hope we keep the US border closed for non essential travel for sometime. I've seen two cars in the past week in my area one from Cali and one from Texas. Part of me wants to tell them to go back where they came from - the irony in that.

The part that irks me is the US is the type of society who will disregard all of what the world has done to combat COVID, but will jump the front of the line and toss every other country aside in the name of greed once a vaccine is found.

The fact that we have universal healthcare and don't hate visible minorities already keeps most of the riffraff out.

I still can't believe people like that actually exist in real life and there's an abundance of them in the southern states, they are like cartoon characters.

They are here too just in lesser numbers but they are here. But seriously they are talking like it is going to be a landslide loss for Trump because his approval rating is at 40%. Any place where he'd have over 5% approval is a cesspool of humanity, I bet he's got a good 10% approval here.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

I'm sure that the actual approval numbers are what they are and if all things being equal...Trump should get trounced in November...BUT...based on all the backdoor dealings he's been having trying to get other countries to interfere...I'm convinced that a hack, scandal or sort of ballot box stuffing will happen with the help of Turkey/China/Russia/North Korea/Saudi Arabia...it's definitely not a given that Trump is voted out. And if Biden wins...Trump's not going to leave just like that. There will be challenges and BS for months after the election.

How many cases per day does Florida need to be at for the NBA to considering cancelling or moving this experiment?

Guys, nba season is over. Over 9K covid cases in one day in Florida, the highest ever. The previous high was 5K cases just 2 days ago. It's going up exponentially. It's all over. Time to bring our guys back, it's a godamn warzone in there.

Yeah I know they are here too but they are defintely the minority in the GTA, most of them also hide in plain sight like snakes in the grass.

We are talking about a state where the government had to tell its residents to not fire their guns at a hurricane.

Perhaps he is hated because he is a narcissist, pathological liar, incapable of decent human emotions, incapable of running an organization such as a government. He incites racial hatred, doesn't know how to handle a crisis - I'll stop there.

An SNL parody isn’t even necessary because the things these people say and do is ridiculous enough.

This is why Sarah Cooper can go viral just by lip=syncing Trump. Comics used to have to hire writers. This s*** writes itself.

So ... 82% of the Canadians who died, died in LTC facilities. Florida has a lot of older, obese people who are the target demographic for this disease. We don't have the statistical breakdown from Canada, but NYC's results seem pretty consistent with the rest of the world - i.e. >80% of deaths had significant co-morbidities. Sure young athletes can and do test positive, but no-one has suggested that Gobert et al are in any danger.

I'm not saying that Covid-19 is nothing, or that it should be ignored. But it's not a such a huge deal that we should panic about it. Honestly, I'm more focused on the BLM demonstrations. Like Kyrie, I would rather cancel the NBA season if it might potentially distract from actually pushing through real change. We can't miss this opportunity to turn manifested racism upside down.

Really? It's not such a huge deal and we shouldn't panic about it? Sure if you're young and healthy then you have a less chance of it affecting you severely but you never know until you contract it. There have been many cases of younger adults falling very ill and even dying from it.

What if you are asymptomatic and pass it on to your parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and those more vulnerable with chronic health conditions? That's not worth taking it more seriously? You just don't know what you are talking about with regards to this. Be more conservative and treat it seriously to not affect others if you think you will not be affected (God forbid).
