That's Life - January 20, 2021

I have done everything I can to comply with COVID-19 restrictions. I do however understand the frustration and mental anguish that business owners are experiencing due to the lockdowns, after all, I’m a business owner.

I don’t usually wade into this sort of thing but I just don’t understand the rationale behind closing the sitting areas of restaurants when people are walking around our grocery store without masks because they can.

I look forward to Dr. Hinshaw’s update on Thursday, January 21. A simple return to restricted numbers, in the hospitality industry, would be a big plus at present. I don’t expect Alberta to completely throw caution to the wind all at once but throw us a bone.

I simply don’t understand why my in-laws can’t join us for coffee or a home cooked meal in our home but they can come to our office and visit. I find it difficult to support our government’s thinking when it comes to this sort of thing.

Day after day more people are turning their backs on COVID-19 restrictions. And they are doing that through protests or blatant refusal to live by the Laws of the Land. That, my friends, is a dangerous scenario. Let’s see what Thursday brings. And, just in case you’re wondering, I will continue to comply with all restrictions as set out by the province of Alberta. I don’t have to like it.

That’s Life.
