More from The New Normal

Good golly, I love our new Isolation Nation reality! A fantastic chance to truly be all you can be!

Use this time to live the dream, everyone – one day your grandkids will ask: “What did YOU do during the great virus panic of 2020, grampa?”

And you’ll need to come up with a heroic backstory.


Like everyone in the city with a camera, I have made a short film about the smoke from the fires in the north of the province that covered Edmonton on May 30th. Enjoy!

It certainly made for a surreal look to the city, with everything being quite yellow-tinted and dark, and the air quality was… as good as it looks. I swear, you walk around outside for a minute and you could taste it for hours afterward.
