He lives in a long-term care home now so it's difficult for him to go out, but I visit him each week because he's walking distance away.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of the passport. I went the long way around and registered for a BC Services Card through an app on my smartphone only to arrive at the same website I could have visited in the first place to input my information and arrive at the screen to save as the "passport." Our provincial health officials aren't perfect, but I believe they have our safety and well-being in mind.
Some unvaccinated people have been outraged at the passport because they cannot dine-in at restaurants, go to events, or access certain facilities, and it's absolutely fine to be angry. Where I think people crossed a line is when they went to hospitals to protest (resulting in traffic jams that slowed emergency paramedic vehicles accessing the hospital). Recently some have taken to social media to report "strange behaviour" of vaccinated loved ones.
I know we're still in a tumultuous time in human history, and people have the right to be angry. But I think that anger can be redirected positively. Instead of calling out your loved ones for changing their behaviour, be a better person and ask if they can use your help. You can protest in front of government or health buildings, or contact officials to express your concerns.
Our provincial passport is meant to be temporary. You can spend more time with loved ones (indoors or outdoors, if weather permits), host your own small gatherings safely, support local restaurants by ordering delivery, and take more time to care for yourself. There are so many more things people could be doing than complaining and taking out anger on others.
There are also still many places around the world who don't have vaccine access and haven't been able to control the spread of COVID-19. So long as you have your health, a home, and the ability to put food on your plate, there's so much you can be thankful for. (Happy Thanksgiving, Americans.)
Be kind. It goes a long way, and it comes back around. I promise.
