It's dps like this that lead me to say:
Presumably the reason you want to visit your friend after 8 is because you’re busy earlier (working, school, family etc.) If you can’t go later, you’ll either A) go earlier (instead of doing something else) or B) not go (because you or he are busy earlier). You’ll prioritize more important in-person activities and leave the less important activities to online interaction.

Do you see how in a large group a curfew can have a significant impact on spread, by greatly decreasing in-person interactions between people?

You have a valid point, so why not disable gatherings at any hour? Why can't I take a walk? Why if I have a dog I can?
When making a law for public it's gotta be implemented smartly and be reasonable. I think they missed the mark.

Is there a limitation on connecting through Canada?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

As long as you don't leave the airport.

Is there any way to visit someone who has a connection in YYZ?

A relative of mine has a connection in YYZ and can't leave the airport, but I'd love to go to the airport to say hi for a minute...

What if you buy a refundable ticket for the same flight, go through security and meet airside - then you change your mind and exit the secure area.  Depends how badly you want to meet.

I hear. I don't think I'm that desperate to see them.

Spouses of Americans can no longer pass the Vermont border as of yesterday. A loophole that was the lifeline of the Montreal community.

Crazy. Multiple siblings of mine are moving weddings to NY now for the summer.

No travel allowed between Quebec and Ontario starting Sunday night.

Shuls limited to 10. (I'm not sure if that's per room or per facility)

Outdoor recreation (i.e playgrounds) to be off limits.

Police gain the power to stop and question anyone at will, and to ticket anyone who in their opinion has no valid reason to be outside.

Tickets start at $750.

Amazing that after 13 months, they still haven't learned any lessons #Canadastan
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

You're talking about a country that hasn't learned anything after 60 years of socialized medicine. 13 months is nothing.

Every single developed country in the world other than the US has universal healthcare, and all of them are happy about it, including Canada.

Not gonna turn this thread into a referendum on universal healthcare, but I have a lot of relatives in Canada (and the UK), and none of them are happy about it. One relative in Canada had to wait over a year for simple cataract surgery which could have been scheduled and done in a matter of weeks here, and another relative with cancer had to rig US health insurance because the treatment in Canada would have killed him 3 years quicker.
