Ah, an indirect distant cousin (about nine times removed) of Robert Monckton then. Robert missed out on being the Viscount because he was a second son, therefore he had to join the military to make his way in the world.

Robert was more distinguished. Aside from the expulsion debacle, he was victor of the Battle of Fort Beausejour, second in command to General Wolfe at the Plains of Abraham, victor of the Battle of Martinique, British military commander of the southern provinces, Lt. Governor of Nova Scotia and Governor of the Province of New York. He was also offered the position of the British military commander of North America at one point, but declined (he would have had to have dealt with the American Revolution if he had accepted). On the other hand, maybe he would have done a better job.

Alberta vaccine update as of June 12th:

68.7% of eligible population has received at least one dose
20.2% of eligible population is fully vaccinated

Time will tell if the million dollar lottery will be enough to get more people to go out. We're just 1.3% away from hitting the threshold for stage 3. Based on second dose trends, it looks like we could crack 40% fully vaccinated by months end.

There has never been an explanation as to why Ontario’s ICU numbers are so high, and as far as I can tell no media has ever really asked.

Case counts always “stall” mid week every week. It’ll drop again starting tomorrow.

Today’s number is a bit higher that it “should be” but Waterloo and Porcupine health unit reported unusually high numbers today for some reason causing that.

Porcupine Heath unit continues to post unusually high case counts - over 300/100k still. It’s now about 15% of the entire provinces case counts despite representing about 0.5%’of the provinces population.
The good news for Timmins is that the number of active cases is less than half of what it was at the peak. There haven't been many new cases over the last week so it seems as though the number should quickly drop.

The bad news is that Cree First Nations along James Bay are being hit hard. Especially Kashechewan and Fort Albany which are across the Albany river from one another. The last report on Friday had 133 active cases in Kash which has less than 2500 people. And almost everyone who has it is under 18 years old. There are reports that some of those younger people are hospitalized outside of the region.

You should see the number of vaccines our region now has as it is a hot spot. Anyone can now get their second shot. There are many pop-up clinics happening and the mass clinics are available even more frequently.

The vaccinations and the fact that so many young people got it in the places up North, the spreading really should be over soon. There is talk of our health unit allowing some parts of our region to move to Phase 1 soon, especially Hornepayne and along the Hwy 11 corridor from Hearst to Iroquois Falls. Numbers still need to drop much more for Timmins and the James Bay area may take longer.

447 cases in Ontario today. Another unusually high day - the rate of decline of the 7 day average has almost flatlined for the last 2 days. We'll have to see what tomorrow's numbers are, as there is usually a large drop on Tuesday.

ICUs continue to somehow remain above total hospitalizations, at 409 in the ICU but yet apparently 384 in the hospital.

The 7 day case average is now at 503. Most likely will drop below 500 tomorrow.

Porcupine Health Unit continues to have alarmedly and stubbornly high case numbers that show no sign of declining.

^ test positivity rate didn't change though.

So likely just a case of less people going to get tested on a Sunday.

Hopefully tomorrow shows a drop in the positivity rate.

Canada has now passed Israel to become #1 in first doses of vaccine given.

How Canada rose to the top for 1st doses of COVID-19 vaccine
More than 64% of eligible Canadians have now had 1 dose of vaccine
Mark Gollom · CBC News · Posted: Jun 14, 2021

For months now, noted American cardiologist and researcher Eric Topol has been keenly following the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines around the world. And he can't say enough good things about his northern neighbour's fast and sudden rise to the top.

His frequent praise for Canada can be found on Twitter, including a recent tweet lauding the country for "pulling away, setting a new pace and ceiling for 1st dose vaccinations of major countries."..

....According to online research publication Our World in Data, Canada has just nudged out Israel to top the global pack, having doled out at least one dose to more than 64 per cent of its citizens. Israel, now trailing Canada, has given first doses to 63 per cent of its citizens....

Yes...."Trudeau Vaccine Failure!!!!!" Is all I hear....

It's pretty amazing to see we've come to vaccinate so many, so quickly in the last few months.

BC has announced it is moving to Stage 2 of reopening as of midnight tonight, and as expected, travel restrictions within BC are being dropped - BC residents will be able to go anywhere they want in the province.

I'm going to go to Vancouver Island before the end of this month.

I wonder what the stats are for those of us who got AstraZeneca first, and are getting Pfizer for the second shot.

Hopefully it's some sort of vaccine super power.

I should be getting my Pfizer second shot later on this week.
