  1. Too bad he is not missing half his skull.
  2. I say RCMP/GRC chopper gonna have to ride through fast (not sure you will outrun the radio)
  3. Not sure how reliable these tests are, false positives, false negatives everywhere This is better than a quarantine, however, it does complicate things. But works many countries in the Caribbean are doing this. For incoming tourists, Barbados, St Lucia, etc.. But what about going back to say NY after a Quebec trip? Is there a quarantine on return? It’s all crazy. If October brings aliens invading the earth, nothing would shock me at this point. Look around at the craziness.
  4. Adapt is right. With all due respect while you are 100% right about sledders re-engaging in areas besides Quebec because of the border closed. Once you have ridden Quebec it’s extremely hard to go to anywhere else, now I know that Maine for sure has some nice trail(though I have never been there) and I never been to the UP so that I can only go by what I have heard. But as far as NY and Vermont, New Hampshire. You cannot compare any of these networks to Quebec. I would be up on a bridge somewhere ready to jump if I was in the states and could not get to Quebec to ride due to border closed and very much understand how the real Quebecriders are feeling.....Sledders need to sled it’s a special time of the year. That said those who ride Quebec and are riders. Will be back.
  5. Nice comparison I think..... . « Aviation is all about risk management. From A to Z. Design, Engineering, Construction, Maintenance, Training, Procedures, Techniques, Manuals: all of it involves a lot of Risks and Risk Management. Taking a 120 tons aircraft designed, built and maintained by humans, filling its tanks with 70 tons of kerosene, its seats with 375 strange people and its cargo holds with 7 tons of luggage, cargo, including dangerous goods, taking off during a snow storm, on a contaminated runway ( ice or snow) with a strong gusty cross winds, flying it 4000 miles at night, in icing conditions, through a line of thunderstorms, in moderate turbulence, to another continent, through a sky crisscrossed with thousands of other aircraft, and landing it in a foreign airport blanketed in thick fog after spending a long sleepless night, involves the management of a lot of risks, risks that airlines, and airline personnel take every day. Every action we take involves risk and risk management. Yet there is always another option that may involve less risk: just cancelling the flight. Deplaning that problematic or passenger. Not taking the cargo. But if airlines were to always cancel flights for snow, for ice, for cross-winds, for thunderstorms, for wind-shear, for turbulence, for freezing rain, for heavy traffic, for contaminated runways, for fog, for fatigue, for problematic passengers, for unusual cargo, for technical problems, we would be cancelling most flights, and we would be on the receiving end of millions of complaints, lawsuits and claims from angry customers. But we don't cancel unless we have to. We fly. We nearly always fly, regardless of what fate throws our way. And we do it safely, responsibly. We learn to manage all of these risks in such a safe manner, and we do it so efficiently that airline flying is one of the safest activities on Earth. • This level of safety is achieved using science, technology, training and procedures. The Government of Canada now has to deal with a new risk called COVID-19. It can either do like we do in the aviation industry, which is to evaluate and study the risks and use science, technology, training and procedures to manage the risks and carry on with the flight, or it can just decide not to have to deal with the risk, cancel the flight and send everyone home. So far, they have decided to cancel all flights rather than manage the risks with technology and science based measures as we do in aviation. This is killing our industry and our livelihoods. »
  6. It’s gonna be at least January I believe. https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1734110/canada-etats-unis-prolongation-fermeture-frontiere-octobre?fbclid=IwAR0R-NB5udxby5q9De0e9mKSuU9WOK0ZWAEhEuGrxxpRBVL2hejQvJhhxbM The federal government will extend the closure of the land border between Canada and the United States for an additional 30 days until Oct. 21, according to CBC. A source who requested anonymity told CBC the borders would remain closed longer. Ottawa is waiting to see evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States is being managed effectively before considering allowing non-essential travel between the two countries. The border has been closed to this type of travel since March. With the number of cases still high in many U.S. states, the two governments have mutually agreed to continue restricting movement across their borders.
