Laughter is the best medicine, especially in a pandemic

This cartoon, entitled “Freedom 70”, is signed by Mr. Yannick Lemay (Journal de Montréal).

The cartoon refers to the 70+ who were allowed four new rights in Québec:

First, to go out for a walk without a supervision.

Second, to see their loved ones.

Third, to go do their groceries in essential businesses (food stores and pharmacies; the latter applies only to remote regions of the province).

Fourth, to engage in activities in and outside of their residence, provided they will respect physical distancing (the latter does not apply yet to seniors in Montréal, Laval, and, Montérégie).  

To conclude this post, for fun, watch the couple getting out of their residence (for seniors). The lady, who is wearing a mask, is saying: “I knit us some masks”. Watch the guy with the victory sign, saying: “Yeah!!! Grocery store! Pharmacy! Here we come!”

On the street, you can see a few virus paintings.

Freedom 70 refers to the freedom of getting out of confinement. A clever reference to freedom 65 or 55… or 95 for some (retirement age).
