Politicians at every level in Canada have been giving some version of the “We’re all in this together – we need to share the sacrifice” speech since the COVID19 Crisis began. But, the reality is we are not all in this together. We are not sharing the sacrifice. Not, by a long shot.
Each morning, I hear the daily COVID numbers reported – but the only number that really matters to me is the number of new cases daily. I’m listening for the day that number is the same as it was the day before. Then, when it’s fewer – as the spread begins too slow. Ultimately, it will plateau – and we’ll have few or no new cases. That’s when we’ll have turned the tide.
