…and other associated weirdness.
Winnipeg is weird at the best of times. Coronavirus is bringing the weirdest of the weird.
Here is a chronological list of all the controversies and other we’re occurances that have unfolded in Winnipeg during the ongoing self-quarantine period:
15: Zillionaire owners of the Winnipeg Jets refuse to continue to pay their employees (well except for their Millionaire players). Redditors vow to stop chanting “TRUE NORTH” during the anthem when the NHL season starts back up. It takes them 5 days to reverse their decision.
I’m sure everyone will forget all of this when sports are back in 2023.
I’m glad they “corrected the record.”
I guess that makes some sense, but sounds bad when you put it that way.
26 — notable non-Winnipeg mention: Workers ‘bunkered in’ at water treatment plant in Brandon, to ensure service during pandemic.
This is when it really started feeling like a zombie apocalypse to me.
Assholes. I didn’t see a follow up to this so I assume it actually happened.
11: Owner of water park Fun Mountain accuses medical workers of being actors.
Extremely gross and unacceptable IMHO.
30: Chainsaw-wielding man threatened arborists and others. 36-year-old charged with six offences, including assault with a weapon, uttering threats, theft.
8-9: Ice cream shop BDI opens an illegal drive-thru in a residential area. It doesn’t go over well.
What’s next unfriending diamonds?
