COVID-Safe Holiday Activities and Events in British Columbia

We’ve all had to make peace with the reality that the holidays will be a lot different this year. It can be a tough pill to swallow for those who depend on this time of year to spend meaningful time with family and friends. It’s also Christmas! And Hanukkah! And Kwanzaa! It’s a time to celebrate your friendships and share gifts and enjoy being around people you love. So the fact that there are limits to what we can do and how we can travel kind of sucks.  But like most negative things in life, there’s a silver lining.

Some of these events

Has anyone ever been as excited for a year to come to an end? It’s been a wild ride, to say the least. But to say we’ve all been impacted by the pandemic in the same way would be wrong. We haven’t.

7 Ways to Save on Your Commute in Ontario

The word “normal” needs to be suspended from our vocabulary, at least for the foreseeable future. There’s nothing normal about this pandemic and its impact on our lives, and waiting for a return to normalcy assumes that everything will go back to the way it was. Hope is never a bad thing, but we have to deal with reality. And the reality is that life is different. The way we work, how we socialize, and how we travel and commute have all been unprecedented. To that last point, commuting to work has become a necessary evil for front-line workers,

Kids are back in school (kind of) and people are back to work (some of us). Okay, so it’s a strange time. I think we can all agree with that.
