Canada has banned all cruise ships until July 1st. This is a major blow to the Vancouver economy as many cruise ships depart from here for Alaska beginning in April. Quebec just shut down all schools and day cares. B.C. has cancelled all large events and banned any gatherings over 250 people. My company (Warmer Bros.) is shutting down all production here. The first death in Canada occurred last week a mile down the road from us and 7 new cases in North Vancouver (population 60,000) were just reported this morning. It goes on and on and will get worse. the real tragedy in all of this is going to be the economic impact that will far outlast the virus itself. Many people are going to go bankrupt. Many people are going to lose everything. Some will lose their lives. This is a human tragedy the likes of which I doubt any of us have ever seen. It far transcends politics or country. We are all human, and this will affect us all. I hope this will serve as a wake up call and that we as a world will be better prepared when something (god forbid) more sinister threatens us again. be safe and stay vigilant everyone.
