Over 60% in Ontario and Quebec.

Good place for them...   BC sucks.  You donít want to be here...

In all honesty, it's a cute publicity stunt but I wish they'd take more effective measures.

I feel so much safer now.  I bet all those 20-39 year olds are really going to stop and think hard about it now that Ryan said something.

Exactly - Deadpool to the rescue!

BC cases are spiking but it's nice to see leadership in action.  Horgan reached out to Ryan Reynolds on social media and Ryan actually took him up on it!!

The 1970s really saw some great developments... from the top:


1970s - Mary Tyler Moore & Spinoffs, Norman Lear shows, Sesame Street and the CTW, Saturday Night Live and The Midnight Special, Monday Night Football

Also I missed: MASH, (not Normal Lear), Live Studio Sitcoms, Roots, Newsmagazines like 60 minutes and 20/20, Soul Train, Movies on TV...

You can see the sophistication level increase, the level of reality and informal language pop out...

I'm watching a show called "I May Destroy You" on HBO and you can draw a line from these trends to today.  It's so casual it seems like it's just film of friends talking... people from the past wouldn't know what to make of it.

I remember Archie being very pro-Nixon as well as voting in Reagan on the presidential vote in 1976 so it did come up.

SOAP was created in the mold of the many shows that Norman Lear created at the time, and it was great and funnier than AITF in my opinion.

OK, I'd forgotten that. I thought SOAP was fantastic.
