Canada is largely returning to normal, and some are struggling to adapt and react with revulsion and derision to the end of mask mandates and other signs that the pre-COVID world is re-emerging.

In Victoria, for example, this manifested itself in cries of horror as tourists returned. Many of the city’s oldest businesses have shop closed over the past two years, with at least one closing resulting from the lack of Alaskan-bound tourists stopping in the city.

I crossed to the other side of the street, tweeted a Victorian. “Later that day I was on Government (Street). Tons of them. I practically ran to get away.
