Who will become your ‘double bubble buddy’?

Two provinces have implemented the so-called “double bubble” policy, in which members of two households are permitted to come in close contact. Who could become your “double bubble buddies” if the measures announced in New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador were enacted in Ontario?

When you start thinking about it, it’s not that easy a decision. Off the top of my head I can think of dozens of people I would love to visit – but one needs to pause to think ‘who needs it most?’

Crooked Creek open for the season

Crooked Creek Garden Centre opened on Mother’s Day to record-breaking cold weather. As with many garden centres, there has been much extra work to set up for the season. “The weather hasn’t been cooperating,” says Tom, “and we lost a week with curbside delivery.” He laughs, “Some people thought we were like Amazon. They’d place an order late in the evening and expect to pick up their order the next morning, which left us scrambling to keep up.” With clear physical distancing protocols in place and ten acres of field for parking, the Kiesers are all set for the season and ready to serve customers.
