It's a privilege to learn about racism instead of experiencing it your whole life.

It's almost as if public schools should be a part of the vaccination strategy instead of leaving it up to private pharmacies and hoping parents have the time, eh @NoLore ? πŸ€” #onpoli

The scientists who discovered Omicron are running out of the chemicals they need to do the lab work to track the virus. Because of the flight ban imposed when they reported that they found the variant.
Today, I spent a big part of my day talking to genomic and biotech companies as soon we will run out of reagents as airplanes are not flying to South Africa! It will be 'evil' if we can not answer the questions that the world needs about #Omicron due to the travel ban!

The travel ban is preventing the South African scientists who discovered Omicron, from continuing to track this variant because they are running out of the supplies (reagents) they need. This is shameful but the expected consequences of xenophobic travel bans.

First shipment has arrived. Courier confused by the cheering. So much planning. So much teamwork. So much worth it.

BREAKING: The city's medical officer of health, with support of Toronto Police, is recommending board of health request feds allow small possession of illegal drugs in Toronto - effectively decriminalizing personal drug use after a decades-long war on drugs that hasn't worked.

Spoke to someone last week who said cases rising because kids not good at physical distancing. Yet how can they in a classroom? Kids & teachers have to wear masks for the majority of the day. But I still see parents at drop off/pickup who don’t wear masks. What gives 20 mths in?
