Jukasa News Update – Monday, April 19, 2021


Students across Ontario will return to the virtual classroom today as school buildings remain shuttered following the spring break.
The provincial government announced the move to remote learning early last week as it dealt with a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
It has also announced a suite of new measures meant to curb the spread of COVID-19, including limiting interprovincial travel.
Premier Doug Ford on Saturday reversed his decision to shutter playgrounds, following a swift backlash from parents and public health experts alike.
They said the move was unlikely to curb the spread of COVID-19, as evidence suggests most transmission happens indoors.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says his province will start offering the Oxford-AstraZeneca shot to those 40 and older starting on Tuesday.
He tweeted the change on Sunday night, hours after Ontario made a similar announcement.
He says more details will come in the morning.
The AstraZeneca vaccine had previously only been available to those over 55.
The announcement comes amid mounting pressure to expand eligibility for the shot as the third wave of COVID-19 devastates parts of Canada.
Alberta currently has the highest rate of active COVID-19 cases in the country.

Police have identified the man who was shot and killed in Brantford last week.
Twenty year old Isaiah Castillo was shot inside a home on Diana Avenue early Wednesday morning. He later died in hospital.
Police believe it was a targeted shooting. This was the second shooting incident in the city last week.
Last weekend a male was found inside a home dead with gunshot wounds. Police have not said if the two shootings are related.

Six Nations Police arrested a 27 year old woman after she robbed an elderly man at a local convenience store.
The woman reportedly observed a 79 year old man paying with cash from an envelope, watched him as he exited the store and robbed him as he was preparing to leave the property, stealing the envelope of cash from the man’s jacket pocket as he sat in the car while an assistant loaded his walker into the trunk.
27 year old Brittany Jean Maracle of Ohsweken was arrested and is facing theft charges.

Six Nations Police say they will not be randomly stopping vehicles or pedestrians as part of provincial authority extended to them by the Premier’s office late last week.
The Premier issued additional authorities under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA) to randomly stop vehicles and pedestrians to assess compliance with the provincial Stay at Home order.
Six Nations Police joined with police services across the province announcing they would not participate in enforcing the stay at home order.
The premier’s office later rolled back that enforcement allowance, after police services overwhelmingly rejected it across the board.
