Physical Distancing

Recommended Posts

I know it's $880 for organizing a gathering of more than 5 people. My old car club buddies got nailed for it two Saturdays ago, for gathering at Walmart to go for a cruise with a dozen cars. Nobody even got out of their cars.. but they "gathered" at Walmart via social media posts. So call your friends if you want to go for a cruise.. yet they have no issues with these Birthday and appreciation drive bys!

irishfield don't get me going on these appreciation drive byes.

Police, fire & ambulances are in them. 

I'd much rather have them doing their appointed jobs.

Yes a double standard.

Thanks Wayne.

This thing is very confusing, like the boat launches being open, not all are open.

I have a pass at 50 Pt. it's a conservation park with a boat launch and marina, you can go in walk around and socialize but the boat launch is blocked off till June, go figure??😡😢

Maybe it's the different police person, some maybe more lenient than others.😏

Do I want to take a chance getting fined? Like said above, it maybe illegal getting ticketed but going to court to fight it is ????😏

I guess I'm a wimp or say chicken crap...... but $880.00 is nicer in MY pocket than theirs😃

OH, I did go fishing on Erie Sat. for 10 hours Walleye fishing. didn't get a tap, nada fish, not even a snag, but MAN!! did it feel good to get the leash off👍:thumbsup_anim:

But that ticket has nothing to do with people from different residences sharing the same boat.

It was for being in too large of a group.

That's crazy! By that standard more than 5 cars stopped at a traffic light is illegal. We met with family at Bass L PP on Sat.We were 7 incl kids but maintained the proper dist. Maybe that was illegal?? I suggested that if any authorities came along we would pretend we didn't know each other.

It was on social media so FB .

And somebody reported it .

If it was text emails or that old stand by a phone call it would be just a bunch of cars ended up at Wal Mart. 

I would still fight the charge, these type of things will clog court and likely be all thrown out.

I don’t get it 

they can organize a 100 car cruise to drive  by a hospital and that’s fine 

but a car club doing the same thing, just driving by something else is illegal

Double standards rules the day. On a tour of a Ford plant today in Michigan guess who was the only person that refused to wear a mask?

They should call it what it really is Socialist distancing. Saw a lady in her car, alone wearing a mask and visor. All I could do was laugh.

Too funny.  My favourite is at the Hortons drive thru when some people keep 10 feet from the car in front of them.

I've got a ticket from Gauthier before.....    On my way to a search and rescue call.

It all seems so Orwellian to me. Were all going to die someday, so when or how really doesn't matter. CBC on top of things announced today that 190000 people from around the world have flown into Canada since Mar 11. Only 75 days late CBC. And this outfit cost the taxpayers 30,000000.00 a week. Sheesh. I shouldn't of been so hard on the lady driving her car alone with the mask and visor on she was probably on her way to see her shrink.

90 over, and you got jammed for an expired plate.  I hope you bought a lottery ticket.

Good for him

i called a out an employee of  store I was in the lineup to pay. Everyone was keeping their distance. Then a women who was working there comes right beside everyone touching some and not wearing a mask so I told her to stop and not come near me  , she said she has to get to the cash register  I said if you need to get by me wear a mask. She said  I was wearing a mask so she didn’t need to.  I took out my phone snapped a photo and told her I would call the police if she came any closer   She turned and walked away

So your saying it doesn't mater how many people can go with you in the boat fishing.

I'm just going by what has been said. 

Fines that have been given out are fake news?

Myself, if the rules are not followed the municipality will board things up again.

Yep, you got it Dave. Just simply follow the directions. 👍

Someone walking by you poses practically zero risk unless they're coughing, sneezing, talking or touching you. By causing a confrontation rather than letting her walk by you significantly increased your risk of potential exposure as her unmasked mouth could have been spraying you with infected saliva as she spoke. 

By "saving yourself" you actually put yourself in a worse position than if you had said nothing. Just sayin...
