12:15 AM – Ottawa will distribute support to the aviation industry, but first Canadians need a refund
The government announced on Sunday that new federal support for Canada’s pandemic-plagued airline industry will depend on airlines offering refunds to passengers whose flights have been canceled.
Transportation Secretary Marc Garneau set the condition when he announced that Ottawa was prepared to respond to desperate calls for federal aid by launching the talks later this week
Canadian commercial airlines have been hit hard by the Coronavirus, with passenger levels dropping by as much as 90 percent thanks to a combination of travel restrictions and fear of contracting the disease
This has prompted airlines to leave hundreds of pilots and technicians behind and suspend dozens of regional routes since March. They have also canceled many pre-booked flights, offering passengers credits or vouchers instead of refunds
Several Canadians have since expressed outrage over not being refunded. The Canadian Transport Agency received 8,000 complaints between mid-March and the end of August, most of which are believed to relate to refunds
11M-BJ to extend the lease freeze until July 2021, increases were set in December 1 pending
The government has extended the rent freeze until July 2021 and has suspended all rent increases due to take effect on December 1, 2020, effective immediately
As part of its ongoing response to COVID-19 and allowing the new cabinet to take the oath, the county is extending a rent freeze until July 10, 2021
The rental freeze was initially announced on March 18, 2020 as a measure for COVID-19 and is set to expire with rental increases allowed again from December 1
After Monday’s announcement, all increases were set in December 1, 2020 or any date before July 10, 2021 will be canceled
The outbreak was announced after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, and the Rapid Response Team from Fraser Health was at home
“Communications are underway with residents and families who are currently employed in self-isolation at home in long-term care,” read Fraser’s Health Statement
The team is now working on tracking contacts, enforcing visitor restrictions and strengthening cleaning procedures. All employees and residents are checked twice a day
A senior official at the World Health Organization said on Monday that the COVID-19 vaccine may be introduced by March to the most vulnerable groups, which may radically change the course of the epidemic, along with other developments.
Bruce Aylward also told the World Health Organization’s Annual Ministerial Assembly that the tentative results announced from Pfizer Inc.’s recent vaccine trials were « extremely positive »
“There is still a lot of work to be done, and these are only temporary results But some very positive results coming today that should hold a great promise and hope for the whole world as we move forward, ”Aylward told the forum of 194 member states
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said news that a candidate vaccine for COVID-19 from Pfizer appears to be highly effective in clinical trials is encouraging but not an immediate solution to the pandemic.
At a press conference in Ottawa, Trudeau said the final vaccine is now useless for anyone who gets infected with the virus.
So he says there may be light at the end of the tunnel, but Canadians need to adhere to good safety and hygiene practices until the vaccine arrives
Canada has bought the rights to 20 million doses of Pfizer vaccine, if proven effective and Health Canada agrees to use it here

The Department of Health clarified new public health orders for those in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health areas on Sunday, noting that there were no social gatherings of any size with anyone other than your immediate family until November 23 at noon
You say this includes not only gatherings in your home, but also outdoors in restaurants or other places
