Suing for severance pay isn't going to be much of a windfall and it will take a couple of years to wind through the courts.

If the plaintiffs lose the case, they could be ordered to pay the employer's legal expenses.

According to those statistics, the difference in infections indicates the unvaccinated are more likely to become infected.

We also know the unvaccinated are far more likely to require intensive ICU care and suffer more serious negative effects of covid.

They also require more time in hospital to recover and use substantially more healthcare resources.

Viral mutations also spread among the unvaccinated and are a constant threat to the world.

Vaccination is the path out of the global pandemic. Global vaccination should be one of the the highest priorities.

... it's pretty obvious the unvaccinated is more likely to become infected and severely so 'cause they have never been infected whether via natural infection or innoculation (aka vaccination).

Right now, it's obvious the vaccinateds make up the bulk of the infections (which doesn't require a statistical PHD to figure out) because the majority of the population has been vaccinated plus the spread is still there.

What'll be interesting(?) to see is the death trend between the vaccinateds and the unvaccinateds. Unfortunately, today's CP24 news (for Ontario) stating 35 new Covid deaths is at an all time high doesn't distinguish between the vax and non-vax. But by common logic, one can accurately guess that number is attributed from the unvaxxeds. Oh well, their choice.

Since most of the ICU cases are unvaccinated, it makes sense that most of the deaths would also be unvaccinated.

The data shows infection rate per 100,000 population.
It is adjusted to the vaccination rate.

It clearly shows that vaccinated are getting infected at higher RATE.
Per 100,000 vaccinated people you have more infected than in group of 100,000 unvaccinated people.
Are you really not capable of reading basic plot?

Vaccinated are infected with omicron at higher rate than unvaccinated.
You might want to reconsider inviting vaccinated people to your gathering

Why is anyone looking at infections when we have already been told that they will be misleading. Since the government hit their capacity limit there will be too much selection involved, in the people who get tested, for them to shed light on any conclusions

2ndly, posting a point of view twice does not make the point twice as correct, and doing it at nausea just makes the point nauseating.

It isn't a point of view. It is data. Factual data. It is posted twice because people who don't have capability of reading graphs with comprehension were misinterpreting.

Also, it is extremely important fact, because it puts entire public policy at question. It is no longer based on science.

If people are relying on covid information from a someone on a financial forum ... well, good luck to them. :)

Quebec just announced they think they have hit a peak in cases. That suggests a peak in hospital within ~ 2 weeks.

Quebec was one of the first provinces in the current wave so this helps give a rough timeline for other provinces. Unfortunately other provinces are far behind and still have a few weeks to go before hitting their peaks.

... lets hope Quebec's health officials are correct with their estimation here.

Quebec to lift COVID-19 curfew Monday, extend vaccine passport to retail

Noted in the same article:
... Legault also announced that the province's vaccine passport will be extended to big box retail stores, except for grocery stores and pharmacies. ...
... boing.

Imagine the unvaxxed needs to go to Home Depot to get a new snow shovel so he/she can dig their car out - to go to - where? ... so maybe there ain't a requirement for that.

Cases are starting to drop in Ontario.
It only tracks positive PCR tests, and that data wasn't adjusted for the change in test protocol

Nor does it account for RapidTest positives, which aren't tracked.

I think that cases in hospitals offer the best proxy for spread, and they're still going up.

I think it is possible cases could be dropping, but I don't have clear data on that.
I think there was a bit of a holiday surge but I think the number of people I know/interact with COVID today is roughly comparable to those who had it last week.

My feeling is that there might have been a mini holiday transmission peak that hit a few days ago, but I fully expect that the kids back to school will result in a second peak.

Canada will allow unvaccinated Canadian truckers to cross in from the United States, reversing a decision requiring all truckers to be inoculated against the coronavirus, Canada’s border agency said on Wednesday.

Now they need to extend this glimmer of reasonableness to all Canadians.
... maybe you spoke too soon. The latest news on this is an "oops!!!!".

Ottawa to go ahead with trucker vaccine mandate after stating it would scrap it

The Canadian Press, Last Updated Thursday, January 13, 2022 5:10PM EST

MONTREAL - The federal government says the vaccine mandate for truckers crossing into Canada from the United States will come into effect this Saturday as planned, despite a previous statement from the Canada Border Services Agency that said Canadian truck drivers would be exempt.

In a release today, Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos along with the transport and public safety ministers say the CBSA statement from Wednesday evening was “provided in error,” and that Canadian truckers must be vaccinated if they want to avoid quarantine and a pre-arrival molecular test, starting this weekend.

The cabinet ministers say unvaccinated American big-riggers will be turned back at the border, with the U.S. preparing to impose similar restrictions on Canadian truckers on Jan. 22.

Government representatives offered no explanation for the incorrect information emailed to media more than 20 hours earlier.

Those graphs look nice!
But where is the underlying data? What do they look at, what time period?
Because the data it is showing is not current. It is not current for cases, it is not current for hospitalizations, and it is not current for ICU. Data from Alpha/Beta/and largely Delta is completely irrelevant

There is underlying data for data I provide. Today's cases: 7753 fully vaccinated. 1336 cases unvaccinated.
The breakdown day by day is in Ontario dashboard.
Unfortunately for hospitalizations they do show breakdown, but not historical values by vaccination status so one can't examine the exact trend. For now unvaccinated represent around 22% of population and 32% of COVID hospitalizations so they are overrepresented, simply nowhere near what the graphs are showing.

Quebec: 22% unvaccinated, 28% hospitalizations 45% ICU
