I appreciate that you at least make a fact based argument and I agree with part of this, but when you say they all should be banned are you talking about semi auto rifles or all guns period?
  I actually have no issue with banning semi auto rifles if that makes people feel better.   I think it is silly and pure emotion based law, but when you start saying all guns or even including hand guns, we're gonna have a problem.
 

I was referring to semi-automatic rifles.  And you can probably guess I'm in favour of strong controls on other weapons. Hand guns? I guess we have a problem

COVID-19 Carelessness: Which Canadians say pandemic threat is ‘overblown’? And how are they behaving in turn?
Those who say the attention and worry around COVID-19 is undue are less likely to be staying away from others, from public spaces, or to be regularly washing their hands.
  • Those who say the threat of COVID-19 is overblown are less concerned about personally contracting the virus or it happening to someone in their household than those who say the threat is serious
  • Political partisanship correlates with opinion on the seriousness of the pandemic: those unconvinced are far more likely to have voted for the CPC in the 2019 federal election

Grimes' mother is Sandy Garossino, former Crown prosecutor and arts advocate, according to wiki.

Grimes born Claire Elise Boucher in Vancouver.  Apparently in a relationship with Elon Musk, could be pregnant with his child.   The YouTube video posted in the NYT article left me rather indifferent though I do smile every time I see the influence of 'prog rock' on contemporary pop music.

The temptation to play the political blame game south of the border will be overwhelming, von Hlatky said — particularly in light of the fact the United States became the international leader in coronavirus cases on Thursday, with 82,000 recorded so far.

I think that many of us are simply too hard on Trump. 

If he sends troops to the border with Canada and uses those troops to keep Americans out of Canada, all I can say is:    Thank you Mr. President!

This coronavirus chart shows what Canada is up against in trying to 'flatten the curve'
Inexplicably, the federal government is not publishing national infection numbers in a way that allows us to see the much-discussed curve. So we've done it for them.
