    Canada announced Pfizer has moved ahead deliveries. an additional 1.5 million doses coming in March and an additional 1 million per month in April/May.

    Pretty huge news actually. That means 1.3m Moderna, 3.25m Pfizer this month (on top of the nearly million doses of the 3 vaccines we received this week).

    Assuming it all gets distributed per capita that means roughly 600k doses for Alberta. Which is twice what we've done to date so far.

    I don't believe these quantities or timelines. Someone is lying.

    Don't worry, Kenney outlined what he called a "probable" scenario, based on modelling projections, that suggests Alberta will hit the peak of vaccinations in mid-May, with 800,000 vaccinated.

    With the U.S going gangbusters right now they’re looking at a real situation where demand is their limiting factor and not supply sooner than later. That means we will probably see even more doses available for Canada than the updated projections have. Potentially millions more in Q2.

    To get perhaps too optimistic, we’re probably going to see everyone in Alberta who is eligible and wants a vaccine getting at least one dose closer to Victoria Day than Canada Day. Though that will depend on how they want to do second doses with these additional vaccines, but I’ve been in a good mood the past couple days so I’m leaning optimistic.

    What was the latest insane statistical modeling projection that one of our gov't geniuses rattled off at a press conference within the last 2 months?
    I think it was Shandro?

    Can someone help me out?

    It was the craziest thing one of them has said since Kenney said "very likely that 800,000 Albertans will have Rona by Canada Day" from about 50 weeks ago.

    Back on January 25th Shandro released the model that showed 10,000+ cases 80/20 split with variants being dominant in 6 weeks and then 3600+ hospitalizations in 8 weeks with 800+ cases in ICU in 7 weeks.

    Then there was that researcher from the U of C saying we need New Zealand style lockdowns to stop variants and having thousands of new daily cases within weeks. According to her, variants were supposed to be the dominant strain 4 days ago. Apparently we should be hitting 1000 new daily cases in two weeks according to her as well. But she's a third wave covid zero loon.

    Thanks.
    I dug that up and while it was stupid, it was more of a pointless statement because it was all based on "without restrictions". Well... We're plenty restricted already, so... Why are you making us worry about the variant vArIaNt numbers getting to infinity??!

    I was hoping it was as silly as Kenney's thing from April 6, 2020.

    Did that whole "work from home if your boss says it's okay" thing get repealed? Or is that technically still the guidance?

    "Mandatory - Provincewide - Effective Dec.13

    Working from home is mandatory unless the employer requires the employee's physical presence to operate efficiently"

    So it's just like before, your boss can still day you need to be in the office if they really want to.

    I drove through Edmonton at rush hour last night and it really seems to me like the whole city is not working from home - the roads were unbelievably busy.

    Regarding Phase 2 I thought that all of Phase 2 was now good - IE hotels can open their pools and fitness etc. However I called the Fairmont which is where I have an upcoming stay and they said that Mondays announcement didnt change the pool status at all.

    I've had to take the wife into the office a few times in the last few weeks, and it feels like traffic is as high as pre-covid again. I couldn't believe how busy crowchild was.

    Hotel pools are still fucked. I couldn't get in on Saturday because all the spots were booked by guests who arrived on Friday.

    A part of that phenomenon is essentially no one is taking transit anymore which has magnified the effect of cars on the road.

    Is transit ridership way down?

    What is parking like DT right now?

    All time lows for Calgary transit utilization.

    Street parking is jammed.

    Or I guess yeah, with WFH its obviously way down. But it looks like when everyone is back at the office, the article indicates many will avoid transit...I'll probably be in the same boat. That may make parkade parking rates increase. There were some good deals last year but that's when DT was pretty dead.

    This.
    I took the train into downtown so I could get absolutely piled up on my last day at the old company.
    The train was a ghost town.

    I have yet to identify any serious parking price decreases around me. Honestly I would bet most of the indoor heated spots DT are paid (corporate or taxable benefit) for regardless of whether there are cars in them.
