Mitigation Measures

This article reports that a tribunal rejected a human rights complaint from a woman who refused to wear a mask in a Lululemon store, and refused what the tribunal thought were reasonable accommodations.

This article reports on a snafu? poor messaging? at the border. There was a directive that Canadians in BC could go to the US for essential travel, including buying essential supplies. CBSA understood the directive to mean, “if you were unable to reach services in Canada”, but a lot of people took it to mean it was a free pass to go to Costco and Trader Joe’s. Thus CBSA was giving out a lot of CAD$5700 fines, which was making a lot of people unhappy. CBSA apparently has stopped giving out the fines. (When I read the directive, it looks to me like CBSA had the more understandable interpretation, but I’m not a lawyer and I don’t handle the NDP’s public relations.)
