Re: 2021 season

The US govt is doing that now--their production is now far more than the US population will need, and Trump's America First is being dropped in favor of assuring their neighboring borders can soon be fully opened--Mexico and Canada will get what they need first, then the rest of the world. From what...

Re: 2021 season

It is looking like by Sept just about everyone that wants a vaccine will have had at least one shot so I am predicting a Sept CFL start with limited crowds and seating. Provincial and federal governments have said everyone will have a chance to receive their first dose by July 1 and second dose by ...

Re: 2021 season

Fully agree. This shouldn't be happening, but we are dealing with 20+ years of the internet being the playground of those who would mold society for their own ends. Pre-internet, antivaxxers were just considered to be cranks/cultists. Through misinformation, they have become legitimized.

Re: 2021 season

A little off-topic (forgive me), but a really good read that sums up the Covid frustration here in B.C. Yes, I believe we will start the season on Aug. 5, but I am hoping our efforts aren't derailed by another powerful variant. :cr: https://vancouversun.com/opinion/shelley-fralic-sending-out-an-sos...

Re: 2020-2021 NHL Season

After dispatching Toronto (and their porous goaltending) 2 games in a row, the Canucks can dare to dream about playoffs. With so many games in hand on Montreal (who are without Price with concussion symptoms) it could come down to all the games vs Calgary tacked on to finish the season. With the way...

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Radio_stations_in_Vancouver It's all in the transmitter power. 1040 (and even AM 730) are Class B 50,000 watts, and 650 is still a pathetic Class B 20,000 watts (day), 4,000 watts (night).That's why people in the Valley are always complaining. Here in Richmond ...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

I choose not to get worked up over speculation about the CFL/XFL talks. It's filled with conspiracy theories about secret deals to fully merge the two leagues and play a spring season of four-down football on smaller fields with XFL kicking rules and no Canadian ratio, all in the interest of gettin...

On a positive on Saturday the registration window opened for my age group 60-64. I quickly and very easily registered thru the government website. Today I received the text advising I can now book and am scheduled for my 1st shot on April 29th up in FSJohn. Good for you Hambone. Yes, it seems to be...

Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

Really enjoying 650.. like it much better than 1040..... heard a million times more relevant Canucks info from the talk show hosts than at 1040. 1040 is more like sports-themed radio personality am/pm drive type content. not sure why I had never tried 650 before.. I was away from VCR for awhile so ...

Re: 2020-2021 NHL Season

After having almost the entire team test positive for COVID, the NHL is expecting the Canucks to resume play next Friday and complete 19 games in 31 days. The league has extended the season from the original end date of May 8th to May 16th. https://www.nhl.com/news/canucks-return-to-play-nhl-season-...
