A Correction

As a non-native Ottawan, Darren doesn't seem to know that there is a difference between TD Place Stadium and TD Place Arena. We Darren mentioned yesterday that the Ottawa BlackJacks would soon be playing in front of a crowd of 1,000 fans, rather the the 24,000 the TD Place usually holds. The BlackJacks play at the Arena, which has a 9,000 seat capacity. We regret the error.

We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren

⭕ News reports that the World Health Organisation has said we should not mix COVID-19 vaccinations have been inaccurate.  Sabina Vohra-Miller of Unambiguous Science explains it below. In a nutshell, she says the WHO actually said that Public Health authorities should make the decision on mixing and matching, not individuals – the question was taken out of context.
