kinda heading toward the camp of this rigamarole being public health theatre much like airport security. doing my part to be up to date on vaccinations and mask in public but public policy isn't quite matching up to anything these days

travel restrictions, testing protocols. even vaccination from a practical standpoint is less about spreading COVID and more about keeping adverse outcomes at bay but policy doesn't match that.

What travel restrictions? The only thing left is vaccination requirements to fly - that is more about incentivizing vaccine uptake than anything and I am in full support.

The only testing protocol is random testing coming into Canada from outside. Also makes sense as it gives the federal government a window into prevalance, variants entering the country, etc. It is needed as the provinces have essentially given up on public testing, so i'm not sure there is an alternative?

fair; as an original tool to incentivize vaccine uptake it did its job, at this point i don't think there's much more blood to squeeze from that stone. notwithstanding the fact that they still haven't moved from 2 vaccinations equating to "fully vaccinated" despite the fact we're onto shot 4.

but is random testing for people entering the country really providing you good data on what's prevalent in the country? it's one alley to get that data from but wouldn't it be simpler to provide funding to provinces for public testing?

my biggest beef is that the policies are half assed in implementation versus intent and they aren't aligned
