After watching the news on TV this weekend, I am not sure that we all shouldn’t quarantine ourselves – irregardless of the danger presented by the pandemic.
To wit: two persons drown in lakes in B.C., another gets bitten by a black bear, one unfortunate fellow goes to hospital for help with mental issues and is forcibly thrown out, after which he commits suicide.
Never mind hitting the beach: one shot from Sasamat Lake showed so many people defying the social-distancing guidelines that it was near impossible to see the ground.
I won’t even try to go to Whonnock Lake this year, knowing that the parking lot and the beach will be overrun by people seeking relief from the heat.
[Dr.] Bonnie Henry and premier [John] Horgan can only shake their heads in disbelief at the ignorance and indifference of what appears to be primarily young people.
