A blind 94-year-old Chilliwack, B.C., woman is left confined for two weeks while bed bugs multiply on her mattress.

A 79-year-old woman in Viking, Alberta, dies of dehydration and a urinary tract infection caused by remaining too long in unchanged wet diapers.

A 63-year-old Brampton, Ontario, man is provided so little food and water that he has to be hospitalized for dehydration.

A 94-year-old woman in Dorval, Quebec, who has both Alzheimers and dysphagia dies from choking on her food. No written incident report is filed by the home where she resides.

If you presumed that these incidents relate to long-term care homes being overwhelmed by the current coronavirus crisis, you can be forgiven. The absolute horror stories emerging from Canadas long-term care facilities have focused our attention as never before on the vulnerability of the residents that rely on these institutions.


But every one of these incidents came from media reports that predate the pandemic. They reflect Canadas system of care for the elderly and people with disabilities in normal times, not times of crisis. In worsening this systems failures, the coronavirus crisis is opening our eyes to realities that far too many Canadian families have long known all too well.

In his response to the gut-wrenching revelations that recently emerged at a Dorval nursing home (the same one where the woman choked on her food), Quebec premier Franois Legault stated that the situation looks a lot like major negligence.

The negligence Legault referred to was that of the privately owned company that ran this home. But there is a more important negligence to consider: that of Canadas entire political class.

Its reckless embrace of neoliberalism has for far too long left many of Canadas most vulnerable residents in conditions that can only be described as shamefully unacceptable. Such conditions are the bitter fruit of what happens when our newspaper editorial boards along with our politicians prioritize austerity, privatization and corporate profits over dignified care for vulnerable human beings.

The picture painted by all this research is of a clear and obvious conflict of interest that subordinates the safety of our loved ones to the profit-making prerogatives of heartless corporations.

While our politicians can claim to be saddened over the tragedy that is now unfolding in long-term care homes around the country, none should claim to be surprised at this situation. Unions and organizations that advocate for the various people that depend on long-term care have for years decried the worsening conditions of these facilities. Many have also been extremely clear about the central reason for these worsening conditions privatization.

Indeed, every one of the examples mentioned at the beginning of this article occurred at one of Canadas privately owned for-profit facilities. While the number of for-profit care homes varies from province to province, such facilities house 37 per cent of Canadas long-term beds.

The connection between private ownership and diminished standards of care has been documented in numerous studies and reports. One recent study from the peer-reviewed journal PLOS Medicine found that for-profit facilities not only provided inferior care but also were more likely to have been cited for serious deficiencies than facilities making less profit.

Similarly, a recent report from B.C.s seniors advocate, Isobel Mackenzie, noted that for-profit care homes failed to provide hundreds of thousands of the hours of care for which they received government funding, while not-for-profit homes significantly overdelivered in terms of hours of care. The picture painted by all this research is of a clear and obvious conflict of interest that subordinates the safety of our loved ones to the profit-making prerogatives of heartless corporations.

While our politicians can claim to be saddened over the tragedy that is now unfolding in long-term care homes around the country, none should claim to be surprised at this situation.

Thus far the solution being proposed by politicians and mainstream media pundits alike is to establish tougher regulations. At best, this transforms the problem into a game of government whack-a-mole. It naively presumes that regulations can cause private corporations, whose CEOs are hired and handsomely rewarded to deliver profits to shareholders, to magically begin acting in the interest of ordinary people.

We should know better.

We Canadians can be so smug about how superior our healthcare system is compared to that of our U.S. neighbours. We wonder how it is that Americans cant see that the delivery of high-quality healthcare for all is completely at odds with the profit-making interests of large corporations.

However, if this crisis teaches us anything, it should be that when it comes to the care of the most vulnerable Canadians, the politicians we have been electing have been just as negligent about the consequences associated with for-profit care as their American counterparts.

If we want to finally bring an end to the decades-long tragedy that has been concentrated in the growing number of for-profit care homes, we need to stop electing politicians unable or unwilling to see for-profit care as the disaster it is. Until we can start electing governments with the courage to make meaningful public investments and reverse the pattern of privatization, many of us will continue to be left with no choice but to trust the care of our loved ones to institutions that are massively incentivized to neglect their needs.

Whether or not we have family members in need of long-term care, we should all see this situation as completely intolerable.

The Rocky Mountain Goat reached out to former Goat reporters, as suggested by a Goat reader, to find out how they are faring during the pandemic and what things are like where they are. The six who have filed stories are spread out across Canada and the globe. All are facing various degrees of restriction and fear.


IQALUITBy Thomas Rohner

Bright, beautiful sunny days are returning to Iqaluit its the time of year when people start taking long snowmobile rides on the ice. This past weekend, in a park on the coast of the Arctic Ocean on the outskirts of Iqaluit, about a dozen people ambled around, some with kids, others with dogs. You might never guess that people here are taking COVID-19 really seriously.

But we are. There havent been any suspected or confirmed cases in Nunavut, but the territory has highly restrictive travel policies. Officials know if the pandemic arrived, it would likely be more disastrous than anywhere else in Canada. Theres a number of reasons for that.

For one, Nunavut relies on health care from the south. Iqaluit, the capital, has the territorys only hospital, and its not fully-equipped. The other 24 communities only have health centres.

The healthcare system here could not withstand the pandemic.

Secondly, chronic overcrowding and longstanding housing crises in all 25 communities bring predictable health consequences: rates of respiratory infections and tuberculosis are off the Canadian charts.

Iqaluit is a government town. So many are working from home, receiving regular paychecks, video chatting with family and friends. A scavenger hunt involving colourful paper hearts in living room windows sprung up the other week for kids.

But many others are feeling the economic downturn and instability. Many show signs of frayed and tattered mental health on social media. Personally, Im grateful that I can take my dog

Nacho five minutes in any direction from my home, and be on the tundra, far away from other people and thoughts of the pandemic.

Thomas Rohner was a reporter at the Goat during two summers 2013 & 2014.


Though Manitoba has not been immune to the novel COVID-19s spread, this province had the chance to learn from the reactions of other Canadian provinces first hit by the pandemic.

That luxury, in combination with its central location and a lower population, gave Manitoba a head start to combat the spread.

Canada saw its first case of COVID-19 on Jan. 15, but Manitoba didnt have one until March 12, a woman who showed the virus symptoms after recently travelling to the Philippines.

Along with the rest of the country, Manitoba immediately implemented social-distancing strategies and ramped up testing.

The Province originally advised residents not to gather in groups larger than 50, but has since reduced the number to 10, further advising against gathering whatsoever if possible.

The Province has emphasized the fact that testing is just a part of the overarching strategy to combat COVID-19, stressing personal accountability to social distancing strategies.

Since its first case, Manitoba has gone from one case to 96 (by presstime Monday).

Provincial health authorities have attributed the low number of casesthough it continues to growto proactive preventative measures including closing schools and public facilities, having grocery stores and pharmacies offer delivery service, limiting the number of customers in grocery stores and having employees strictly enforce social distancing strategies once inside, and (maybe most importantly) self-isolation, etc.

But again, the provincial government has given much of the credit to the population for being respectful and accountable to social-distancing strategies and self-isolating.While many people in both Winnipeg and its surrounding rural communities can be seen on the streets taking walks and/or going for runs with their families, pets and roommateswith safe distances between them and groups foreign to their householdcommunities appear to be ghost towns, with little to no visible movement comparatively to recent memory.

TORONTOBy Frank Green

Toronto has become a strange and ghostly place amid the coronavirus outbreak. Now with more than 500 confirmed cases, the city has shut down non-essential businesses, and politicians are begging Torontonians to stay indoors as much as possible. Grocery stores each have a security guard posted at their door like a bouncer at a club, making sure it doesnt get too crowded inside.

The city is quiet enough to hear birds chirping. Everybody goes to the park now. Joggers, deprived of their gyms, are everywhere. Nuclear families, usually divvied up by modern life, have been reunited.

The pandemic is also exposing the citys ugly seams. Many rich people have fled to their cottages. Poorer people are quietly panicking about money. Job losses have been staggering, and there are burgeoning movements organizing tenants to withhold their rent this April.

After years of stonewalling, Toronto abruptly found a way to procure housing for many homeless people in the city. Coronavirus is revealing how much government can do when it wants to and how little its been doing up until now.

I work as a letter carrier for Canada Post, and Ive been grateful for it. I dont really need the money, and the job puts me at slightly higher risk of contracting coronavirus. But Im happy to have an excuse to get out of the house, and some structure in my life. The crisis has made me realize how much my I depend on my little routines in order to feel okay, especially going to cafes to do journalism work.

Its spring now and the weather is gorgeous, but everything feels dirty. It reminds me of when I got bedbugs about ten years ago. My house looked normal, but I could no longer trust the way things looked and touched and smelled. I hope this ends soon.

By Radka Zitkova

I am currently in Prague, Czech Republic, working as one of the main editors at the news website Aktualne.cz. Because of the COVID-19 situation in the country and Europe in general, the government announced a state of emergency on March 12. People are only allowed to leave their homes while commuting to work (those who arent working from home), doing essential shopping or visiting people they take care of. Short walks outside are permitted, but only in a group of two, with the exception for families. And yes, people are going crazy from the social distancing here just like they are in Canada.

What is special about the Czech way of tackling the spread of coronavirus is the mandatory face protection in public. First it was recommended by some of the scientists, then by influencers and for the past couple weeks it actually became illegal to be without a face mask or at least a scarf covering your mouth and nose when in public.

Because of the lack of protective gear available (the government is under huge wave of criticism for not providing even the hospitals or senior homes), people started sewing their own masks from fabric at home. Restaurants, theaters, and senior homes turned into sewing places overnight. There are so called face-mask trees where those in need can take a mask made by their neighbors. While these masks are not able to protect the person wearing them from catching the virus, they can partially protect people from spreading it. Therefore the motto is:

My mask protects you, your mask protects me.

Radka was a reporter at the Goat during the spring and summer of 2011. She lives in Prague.

For weeks Hong Kongers have watched the COVID-19 pandemic unfold from a safe distance. The closure of the China-Hong Kong border and mandatory quarantine measures implemented in late January contained the spread of the virus. Even before the government measures, people in Hong Kong were already implementing strict personal hygiene measures like wearing a facemask, constant use of hand sanitizer and hand washing. Restaurants and gyms took patrons temperatures each time they entered, and if it was high would be refused entry and told to see a doctor. The normally bustling sidewalks in early February were empty, as many people took social distancing seriously. This led to very low rates of infection in Hong Kong, as up until early March the numbers were under 200 people infected in a city of just over 7 million. People in Hong Kong were feeling confident and as the weeks went on with only a trickle of new cases, people began to go out; dim sum restaurants filled with elderly socializing and drinking tea, gyms were packed, and restaurants and bars open for business.

Since then the spread of the virus globally has triggered a second wave of infections as Hong Kong residents returned from Europe and North America where infection rates have skyrocketed. Many of those returning were students coming home after school closures, leading to a doubling of new cases in the past week or so. This has triggered new protocols to stop the spread of the virus. However the implementation has been haphazard and appears arbitrary and random. For instance, as of March 28th, you can go out to a nightclub or bar, as long as you are in a group of four or less, or sing karaoke and play mahjong at a parlour with no restrictions. You cant go to a movie theater, gym, or use any of the citys leisure or cultural services including museums, concert halls or sports equipment. Soccer goals, basketball hoops, childrens playgrounds, and even outdoor ping-pong tables are covered in restrictive no entry tape.

That's why in February, NOW launched its inaugural Renters Survey to help quantify the housing crisis and more than 2,100 Torontonians responded.

"Nowhere to go if evicted, renovicted or [the building] is demolished for condos. If I have to leave my current place, I cannot afford to pay two-and-half times more rent"

Above guideline increases for things that should be routine part of doing business

Lack of rent control on new buildings

Landlords want long-term tenants out to raise rent and this creates unstable environment for tenants with no intentions to move. Landlords will do anything to get them out

If you have lived somewhere for more than three years, you feel like you cant ever move because a comparable or slightly better unit now costs nearly double

Lack of [vacancy] rent control. My last apartment was $1450 per month, which I thought was a rip-off at that. I gave notice and the landlord re-listed the place at $2000/month, and found somebody

Lack of affordable housing and lack of purpose built rentals compounded by developers only building "luxury condos" even though regular people need regular places to live

Paying sky high rates for a shoe box

NIMBY-ism on supply side. Allow higher density housing in downtown where transit exists. Allow creative use of existing real estate, i.e. laneway housing, more 3-6 story developments in traditional neighbourhoods

Tenants competing with short term rentals like Airbnb

Cost and availability of rentals. I am paying $1,700 for a basement rental without windows. Its insane"

Rent is exorbitant; Only thing affordable is with clueless mom and pop landlords

As a growing city that attracts talent with higher incomes, those with higher incomes outbid the lower to lower-middle income earners which inflates prices. We don't have enough affordable housing in Toronto"

Insecurity. With the increase of "renovictions" or "my family member is moving in"-type shady evictions, tenants are loathe to complain about any subpar living condition, because simply having to move means one's monthly rent will jump by several hundred dollars"

Regular inspection is important to prevent infestations. To thoroughly inspect your home, you will need a few simple tools:

Check on, under and beside beds, couches and upholstered furniture. Look for black/brown spots (dried blood or feces), white spots (eggs - very hard to see), or live or dead bedbugs.

If you find signs of bedbugs, you should carefully widen the area of your inspection. If you have a pet, check areas where your pet sleeps as well.

You should throw your bed out if you find bedbugs inside the box spring or where holes or worn spots in the fabric of the mattress are. These spots can allow bedbugs to lay eggs in places that are not easy to reach for treatment.

If you do throw out your bed or any other infested items, wrap them in plastic and tape off the edges to prevent spreading bedbugs on your way to the trash. Put a sign on the item saying it has a bedbug infestation, so that no one else takes the problem home with them.

If you find signs of bedbugs, also check:

If bedbugs are on the walls, they could also be hiding in picture frames, light fixtures, smoke detectors or other wall-mounted items. Bedbugs hiding in ceiling lights could mean that they are entering from a room above yours.

For more information on pesticide use and regulation, contact Health Canada's Pest Management Information Service.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely am I to get coronavirus? Probably about a 9: What its like to live in a Toronto homeless shelter right now

Ive been on the street for a little over a year, and Im currently living in a shelter in a church basement. It was originally supposed to hold around 30 people, and now 62 people are staying there. Let me put it this way: if the health department came, they would shut it down. We have cockroaches crawling on the tables in our eating area. Bedbugs, too, but thats inevitable. I measured the space between the beds, and its a little over three feet. I can basically scratch my neighbours nose. That doesnt feel like enough distance when coronavirus is transmitted through droplets. We have one hand sanitizer dispenser in the entire place. Cleanliness is also a problem, because lots of people here have less-than-ideal hygiene practices. If you bring it up, theyre like, Dont tell me what to do. Off the top of my head, I cant think of any solution other than to burn the place down and start over.

The director of the shelter gave us a bit of a speech the other day. He said, Well do the best we can to keep you safe, and everything is going to go on per usual. Well, that doesnt really address anything, does it? I cant self-isolate. Im not even allowed to stay in the shelter: they wake us up at 6 a.m. and kick us out for the rest of the day. All it would take is one more shift, two more shelter staff, to let us stay inside for the day. Thats what happened at Christmas. There were two extra people working during the day. The world didnt come to an end. John Tory, Doug Ford, Justin Trudeau, theyre all self-isolating. What about us? Im a Vietnam vet, and it takes a lot to scare me. This scares me.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely am I to get coronavirus? Probably about a 9. Im 68. Ive had a lot of medical problems in the past year, like deep-vein thrombosis, and Ive been told to stay in bed, to get as much rest as I can. Its not an option. There arent that many places to go right now. I usually spend time at the library, but those are closed. The recreation centres are closed, too. Even the dining room of McDonalds is closed. My friend went to McDonalds this morning and tried to pay in cash, and they told him they just wanted cards. And if I want to talk to my doctor, the only way is through the phone. Right now Im not living, Im existing. And with this virus, I dont know how much longer I can exist.

Theres a group of us in the shelter who try to help each other, given the limited resources we have. If somebodys got a headache or a stomachache, then somebody might give them some Tylenol or Tums. My friend Malcolm has been amazing. Hes given me money and has been there for me when no one else was. We call each other brothers. If it wasnt for him I probably would have shot myself by now. Hes saved my life.

I dont feel like the shelter staff listen to me when I express concern about coronavirus. They see me as a troublemaker. Whenever something happens, Im the person residents come to. They know Im not afraid to go talk to staff and bring up whatever the problem is.

Several people have told me that theyre concerned about coronavirus, and that the homeless people are going to be blamed for its spread. Its not impossible, because people always look for somebody to blame. Thats human nature. And who do you blame? The weakest and most vulnerable people. The only way to solve this would be to give hotel rooms to the homeless. Thats the only way well be able to self-quarantine.

Im well-educated. Im not usually at a loss for words, but I dont have the words for this mess were in. I think it was Diogenes who said that a society is judged by the way it treats its most vulnerable people, and so far were failing.

As told to Isabel B. Slone

Airbnb Canada is asking the City of Saskatoon to rethink a rule that would require hoststo producewrittenpermission from their condominium boards stating they can launchan Airbnb inside their condos.

But Nathan Rotman, Airbnb Canada's deputy director of public policy, saysexplicit approval from condo boards that already have condominium bylaws is an "unnecessary and repetitive burden."

"If the condo bylaws are legallybindingdocuments, there's no reason that a repetitive, added layer of regulation should be put in place," Rotman said.

The feedback came during a public hearing last week on the city's proposed new regime for regulating short-term rentals such as Airbnbs.

The city wants condo owners seeking to start a short-term rental in their property to secure a letter from their condo board blessing the enterprise (or not).

Rotman cited a more hands-off system in place in Vancouver, where condo owners self-declare to the city simply whether their building's bylaws allow for Airbnbs.

"You check off 'yes or no' and then it is a private matter between the board and others," Rotman said.

Jeff Jackson, a previous chair of the city's municipal planning commission and a former Airbnb host in a condo building, was more blunt about requiring a condo board letter.

"[It's] quite frankly a waste of time," Jackson said. "If condo boards don't want to allow them, they will enact a bylaw for their condo corporation. I know this being on two condo boards. No need for city hall to be involved, at all."

Councillor Randy Donauer said "the less regulation we can get into the business place, the better."

Donauerthen askedthe city's manager of licensing and permitting, Mark Wilson, why the city wants a letter of approval from condo boards.

Wilson said some condo associations aren't even sure which of their units are home to Airbnbs. Mayor Charlie Clark guessed that as many as 90 per cent of condos in the city don't have Airbnb-specific rules "because it's pretty new."

Letters of permission would allow the city to stay informed about each building's condo rules, Wilson said.

They would also allow condo boards to make flexible, case-by-case assessments about would-be Airbnb hosts, Wilson added.

Wilson said the city heard from condo boards who say they have no problem with responsible renters but Airbnbs have been a problem in the same building when another renter is irresponsible.

As both Wilson and Jackson suggested, if an Airbnb condo turned problematic, the condo board could signal to the city that it no longer approves of the business.

Councillor Bev Duboissaid she's heard from condo boards "that don't have a clue what to do."

"They don't know if it's something that the city deals with," she said.

Jackson suggestedhosts should play a key role in policing Airbnbs.

"As a [former] Airbnb host myself, I made sure that my neighbours next to me, across from me and above me all had my cell phone number," Jackson said.

"If there were any concerns, I don't want to hear about it tomorrow,I want to hear about it today. So I think that we [hosts] need to be active. We can't always look to the city to manage this for us."

Keith Pearson, who said he was a former bylaw officer in Kelowna, B.C., struck a different tone in telling the city to be careful about whatever regime it approves for Airbnbs.

"My main concern because I live in a condo is bedbugs," Pearson said.

Councillors also heard concerns about a proposal to regulate short-term rentals through discretionary use applications, as well as the way the city consulted the public.

The city will now report back to council on an alternative idea:regulating short-term rentals through a business licencing process.

That report is expected to land on councillors' desks in April.
