P.E.I. temporarily backs out of the Atlantic bubble 1


With COVID-19 cases on the rise across Canada, and within the bubble itself — particularly in parts of New Brunswick and in Nova Scotia’s Central Zone – P.E.I. and Newfoundland and Labrador have decided to pull out of the bubble temporarily.

  1. There is an interesting correlation between degree of willingness to restrict inter-provincial travel and degree of dependence on equalization transfer payments. So far, the two are perfectly correlated.

  2. Go PEI the rest of Canada should follow suit
    .. I might relocate

  3. I know of no one who has had this so called ” deadly virus ” .

  4. My understanding of this is that at first P.E.I had their borders open to the Atlantic provinces but closed to the rest but they are now shutting down their boarders for all provinces.

  5. a NOVEL vaccine that alters DNA, without proper scrutiny for safety and efficacy for a problem that CDC states has over 99% recovery, why?? No thank you.

    • Right on Raymond! I see you everywhere. Keep it up.

      @Faceless nah there you go. Make sure to line up for that vaccine

    • @Internet Expert Lol. Will do. Been vaccinated for everything, never been a problem.

      For someone who calls themselves “Internet Expert”, you clearly don’t know how to use Google to do basic research.

      @Faceless take a vaccine for somthing that has less deaths then the flu. Which seems to have disappeared this year? 😂 No thanks never been vaccinated for the flu and I get sick about once every few yrs. Have fun with that cocktail of “antibodies”

    • well said Raymond. I’m more interested on finding out who created this virus and why.

  6. did he say vaxx you get 1 first i will stand behind you

  7. One of the best things he’s done during this pandemic 👏

  8. I’m relieved to hear this plan.

  9. Imagine a disease so deadly that you need a test to determine whether you have it or not….

    • 70 cases 0 deaths.. I’m literally shaking. Shut down everything!!! Dropping like flies!!!

      @Peepee Poopoo Another record number of cases in Ontario today and ICUs trying to keep up.

    • @Nature and Physics 10900 some deaths and all but 166 are in long term health care homes but everyone else has to lockdown and isolate….lets try to keep the facts as straight as possible

      @Thomas Counley The sole fact is that everyone is part of this. There are 500 cases per day in one Ontario county. Visits to bars and Arby’s are not necessities.

  10. Idiocy comes in many forms, obviously. This is precisely why PEI has only 69 cases in total, no hospitalizations, and NO DEATHS! All the measures that have been taken to this point, have proven to be effective. Dr. Morrison and Premier King are on the right path, and no Covid denier is going to persuade me that all is well and we should carry-on as if the pandemic didn’t existe. Just look to the south if you’re unsure. You should be thankful that you live in one of the safest places on earth.

  11. “I feel…”
    “I feel…”
    “I feel…”
    I feel like he might be taken more seriously if he didn’t appear to be governing based on his emotions.

  12. The Atlantic provinces should separate from Canada before it’s to late.

    • @Cheryl Sanders Relax Cheryl!

    • Equalization transfer payments account for 20% of the provincial budgets of NB and NS and 30% of the provincial budget of PEI. In addition, federal social welfare programs, e.g. EI, are more generous than in regions with less seasonal employment. Separation would cause an economic crisis. There would be substantial reduction in provincial services, substantial loss of civil service employment, and the knock on effect on the economy would be significant. That said, the payments may be gone soon anyways. It depends on the ability of the traditional “have” provinces to continue generating excess economic productivity. That’s not a given at the moment. Time will tell.

    • the rest of Canada wishes you would too

    • @Dylan Power the rest of Canada really would be at a loss without the money we shell out maybe instead of voting to cripple Alberta and come for work vote what you really are conservative after all it’s our industry that can single handed fix the economy for all yet the east keeps voting liberal or NDp then come out west to work. Our economy tanks due to the government yet we still pay out to the eastern provinces

    • Jim Trainor I’m in southern Ontario, northern Ontario, Quebec and western Canada should all leave. Toronto is not a Canadian city like London uk is not a British city. Edit this is a response to Jbbles not Jim.

    I`m from N.B. and I agree 100% on what PEI is doing…Stay safe!!

  14. Give me liberty or give me death…….unless theres a virus that you have a 99.7% of surviving…..in which case take all my rights freedoms and liberty please government just take it all!! Im so scared!!

    The decision is based on what? Science?

  16. I hope the Atlantic bubble is closed for awhile, speaking from Saint John

    • Don’t forget to wear your three layer nappy while you’re collecting your cerb

      @Raymond Doobay WOW!! Nice comment. 🤦‍♀️🙄 say that to the families who have had loved ones died! Stop whining and think of others not just yourself! SMH

  17. Check your insurance policies, they might not cover pandemics.

    I don’t blame P.E.I. One bit! 🇨🇦❤️🇨🇦

  19. When this is over, I will NEVER step foot in an atlantic province again and I hope the rest of the country remembers how these unemployed leeches wanted our money while putting up borders INSIDE the country.

  20. All these idiots in the comments is very alarming. Willing to throw everything away for a little false sense of security. You deserve what you get. It’s coming quick.
