Best Kids' Winter Boots For Stomping All Over The Last of 2020
As time marches briskly towards the end of the wackiest year in living memory, it’s time to start thinking about slush, snow and, of course, winter boots.“The upcoming winter forecast for Canada has a lot of white in it,” predicted Jack Burnett, managing editor of the Old Farmer’s Almanac, in an interview with Yahoo Canada. Blizzards, hail ... locust storms ― at this point, just bring it! If spring, summer and fall 2020 have prepared us for anything, it’s adversity.And with the right footwear, biblical winter weather events don’t have to be an impediment to our kids getting outside and staying active. Many of us will be on a budget this year. The environmental benefits of reusing consumer goods are well worth it too. Online buy-and-sell sites, apps and services like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, eBay, Poshmark, OfferUp, ThriftyCanuck and Kijiji are all great places to look for gently used or even new-condition winter boots at lower prices (and in some cases, free or as a trade). Thrift stores often have kids’ boots in excellent condition, given that children grow so fast. And in most Canadian communities, there are winter coat and boot drives, where families in need can get kitted out for the colder months. Check out community and neighbourhood group postings online to find out about drives near you.If you’re investing in new winter boots this year, there are lots of stylish kids’ options to choose from. Things to assess when boot shopping are the soles (the thicker the better), insulation, waterproofing, the grip of the tread, and how quick and easy it is for kids to get their boots on and off. The boots we’ve found check all those boxes, and they happen to be pretty cute too.Click through the slideshow below, to see what Winter 2020 has to offer in the kids’ boots department: RELATED STORIES 5 Ways To Support Your Kid's Immune Health Through Cold And Flu Season Fall And Winter Boots That Will Keep Your Toes Warm Until Spring Ontario’s Covid-19 Response Has Been Shockingly Anti-Child (Opinion) Watch: Cozy winter boots that parents will want to wear all winter.

Doug Ford Defends Law That Makes It Harder To Sue For COVID-19 Exposure
TORONTO — People who are angry about a proposed bill to protect businesses against COVID-19-related lawsuits should “talk to their lawyer … rather than just read the headlines,” Premier Doug Ford said Wednesday. “This does not protect the long-term care homes 100 per cent, by any means,” he said. “If there has been gross negligence or negligence, continue suing them. They will be held accountable.” His government introduced Bill 218 Monday. It shields people who act in “good faith” and without “gross negligence,” from being sued for exposing others to the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19.More than 1,980 long-term care residents have died with COVID-19 in Ontario. Watch Premier Doug Ford’s tribute to Kathleen Wynne. Story continues after video. Families and care home workers allege that some homes let COVID-19-positive residents stay in shared rooms, denied oxygen to infected residents, and allowed staff to go back and forth between homes that had outbreaks and the ones that didn’t.Ford said his government does not want to protect bad actors, but rather business people, like convenience store owners, who took the necessary precautions.I’ve been on these guys like an 800-pound gorilla.Premier Doug FordHe laughed off a question about whether he was protecting people in the industry who have ties to his Progressive Conservative party.“I’ve been out here just hammering the people that have been negligent in long-term care. I’ve been on these guys like an 800-pound gorilla,” he said. Darryl Singer is a lawyer with Diamond and Diamond who’s filed three major lawsuits against long-term care operators related to COVID-19.Despite the “higher threshold,” created by this law, Singer said he expects his lawsuits to be successful.“All it really does is it raises the standard of what negligence really is,” he told HuffPost Canada.Singer gave the example of homes that allegedly did not isolate residents who had symptoms of COVID-19.“What is the number one thing from the first public health recommendation way, way back in February? … If you have COVID symptoms, you need to isolate,” he said. “I would say that’s gross negligence.”READ MORE... Ontario Ministry Passed Buck To Long-Term Care Homes Ahead Of COVID-19 2nd Wave For-Profit Nursing Homes Hire Tory Insiders To Lobby Ford Government COVID-19 Has Killed 164 At Revera's Care Homes. Their Families Want Answers. It’s “abundantly clear” that some operators ignored public health recommendations, he said.“I don’t even see how they could argue with a straight face that they weren’t grossly negligent.”Others are more worried. “It is difficult enough for residents and their families to prove the ordinary civil standard of negligence ... without having to discharge the higher and ambiguous standard of ‘gross negligence,’” Graham Webb, the executive director of Advocacy Centre for the Elderly, said in a statement. “This is all about protecting the rights of negligent long-term care home operators at the expense of residents injured through the fault of the operator.”‘Get Out of Jail Free’ cardFord’s opposition at Queen’s Park also took issue with the bill.“It’s a sad day in Ontario when the government prevents people from getting their day in court,” NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said in question period.Green Leader Mike Schreiner called it a “Get Out of Jail Free” card.“Instead of fixing the crisis in nursing homes and guaranteeing better care, the Premier is protecting those who were responsible for bad care,” he said in a statement.
