This copy is for your personal non-commercial use only. Before all this, every Canadian had their own version of Canada Day.

Maybe it was a barbecue, a fair, a parade. Maybe it was just a day off, finally. But this is the pandemic year, and our collective experiences have been atomized as we were kept apart, together. Unlike everything else, the pandemic has touched all of our lives at once. Not equally, of course, but universally.

The pandemic split a nation of many Canadas into individual Canadas; for most of us, the country was smaller than ever before. The pandemic barely brushed large parts of the country, Alberta bent the curve, and B. Most deaths were from the generation of our parents and grandparents , warehoused in the best housing our society was willing to pay for as old age devoured them.

Two to a room, or four, more privatization, fewer inspections. Ontario waited far too long to bar workers from multiple homes. Quebec likely spread infections to long-term-care homes while trying to cover for staff shortages. Most things are the result of policy choices over the years. In mid-March, Canada seemed to be in great shape: among countries with at least cases, only Japan had a lower infection rate per capita.

But we were slow, too slow, cautious, too cautious, too Canadian, and we were tied to America. Among nations with at least , publicly identified cases, Canada is now 10th in COVID cases per capita, and ninth in deaths. So Canada failed, too. Maybe this year is a chance for Canada to really, finally, look in the mirror. The Prime Minister said it over and over, and added that we are there for you, we have your back. At the start, some people hoarded toilet paper and hand sanitizer, and some people raised money to buy personal protective equipment PPE for health-care workers.

Some politicians listened to their aggressive public health officials, and some had already driven theirs away. Four days later, the federal Liberals closed the borders to everyone but non-citizens and Americans, but were slow to close the border to the U. Data later showed that almost no travel cases came from China; a heavy plurality came from the United States, though. Sloan remains in the Conservative caucus. But for a time, most Canadians listened to public health advice regardless of partisan stripe, from coast to coast to coast.

For a time the whole earth stopped vibrating enough that seismologists could detect an eerie quiet. Being a parent has been so much weight. Living alone, too. And some people lacked even those luxuries. And everyone knew homeless shelters would be a problem before their positive test rates hit 20 per cent. The cops at Pearson airport started seeing more homeless because the shelters got full and put them on a bus, and most cops left them alone. But if airport security called, they had to confront them, get them out, put them back on a bus to the city.

Canada has never cared enough about First Nations reserves, prisons, people with disabilities, migrant workers, the working poor, homeless people, and the elderly, some of whom died with nobody to take care of them.

Combined with the conditions that come with being the working poor in a rich city, cases exploded. Andrew Boozary, the executive director of social medicine at University Health Network, a son of Iranian immigrants who grew up in St. Jamestown apartment buildings. We know from the data that income is the number one determinant of health. And there are major gaps between rich and poor neighbourhoods. And that is something that we have really not gone upstream to address, and instead have decided to rest on our laurels to say, we have a universal health-care system, and look how bad it is in the U.

Nitin Mohan, a physician epidemiologist whose parents came here from India in the s, and grew up in working-class Etobicoke. Damage is being done. Thousands of Canadians learned to say goodbye to loved ones over Zoom, and without much of a funeral. So doctors and nurses bore that burden , as they have the whole way.

Paramedics, too, who had to tell frantic family members in the doorway to wait, we have to put on PPE before we try to save your dad. The biggest weight has been carried by the health-care community, and it will all take years to unknot.

I spoke to one ICU nurse who works overnight shifts. When a patient was dying and she had time, she would sit with them in the dark and hold their hand. They do say hearing is the last to go. They might hear, they might not.

Good people did good things, and that is a lesson to remember, too. Even the best of us needed courage; the night Bonnie Henry went home after shutting down British Columbia she wanted to run away, anywhere, as far as she could. Some Ontario public health officials have felt the exact same thing. But people have persisted, even as the public got tired. All recorded rich profits in the quarter. There will be such a pressure to return to the profitable, familiar, unequal comfort of how things used to be, before all this.

But maybe Canada is waking up from a long slumber, and being shown our reflection. Our myth of scientific excellence was punctured, and our pandemic planning was pedestrian, and our lack of manufacturing meant one hospital held a sewing drive to stitch together homemade surgical gowns.

Some arms were different lengths. The community held them up, even as government let them down. And while universal health care is the closest thing to a national policy identity, it turns out not to be universal after all. This year we have a chance to look in the mirror, and remember what we see. To pretend everything is normal this year is impossible; to return to better than normal might be our greatest challenge going forward.

COVID Reshapes Canada Day Celebrations | .Canada Day celebrations to go virtual July 1 amid COVID pandemic | CTV News

 
 

Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde called on the country to work as one to close gaps that exist between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.

She spoke about her confidence in Canadians to heed the lessons of and not remain indifferent to multiple challenges. Many of the statements would have been delivered in-person, instead of by video, but the pandemic forced the cancellation of high-profile events like the annual pomp and pageantry on Parliament Hill in favour of online offerings to keep crowds from gathering.

The Ottawa show was streamed live and virtual fireworks at night as part of a buffet of digital activities Canadian Heritage curated. The 53 bells of the Peace Tower still rang, with two special recitals streamed live. Federal officials began reshaping the annual celebration months ago, knowing that construction on the iconic Centre Block would force a change from the schedule in recent years where artists performed on a large stage set up on Parliament Hill.

Some of the elements provided online could stay in place for future Canada Day festivities, particularly to help connect people who are far apart, he said. The physical distancing measures recommended by public health officials, the lockdowns and orders to wear masks indoors from some jurisdictions have also sparked some backlash. A group of demonstrators gathered on Parliament Hill to denounce those measures, which they called an infringement of their civil liberties. Many chanted anti-Trudeau slogans while not wearing masks.

Similar demonstrations were planned in other locales. Two to a room, or four, more privatization, fewer inspections. Ontario waited far too long to bar workers from multiple homes. Quebec likely spread infections to long-term-care homes while trying to cover for staff shortages. Most things are the result of policy choices over the years.
