    I'm not using any #s. I don't believe everything I see but there are sometimes doctors in the country tweeting.

    Enjoy!

    Canada will be the hardest hit by the Virus... with most of the population gathering at least weekly at a hockey game or Timmy hortons... once the first case hits it will flame through the population like a wildfire in through as hockey stick factory.

    Canada is getting shut down by a few idiot eco terrorists blocking railways and you think your power will stay on during a full on pandemic type event?

    Quebec has been a net drain on Canada since confederation, if a pandemic is going to hit us, my hope is it starts in the GTA and heads east at a break neck speed.

    Raise the limits.

    It might be a good idea to NOT rely on anything, especially your power staying on. The grid might be stable, but if people panic harm can come to the system. Regarding bugging out to a farm... not sure that would work. The farmer will keep/defend his food supply for himself and his family, especially with "hot hungry hordes" nearby or within "bug-out reach" so his willingness to sell you food would probably be non-existent - and, depending on the circumstances, you might get shot as you approach his property.

    I'm not trying to shoot down your ideas, and hopefully eventually you'll come up with some workable options. Good luck!
    So what would you do to prepare if you were in Montreal?

    Put back huge amounts of smoked meat and supplies for poutine! I firmly believe that poutine may be one of the fundamental building blocks of life in the universe. And life ain't worth living without smoked meat sammiches!

    In all seriousness, drive 30 miles (40KM for you) outside Montreal and meet up with some of your local farmers. They grow organic, non-GMO and do it the old way. It tastes better and it is FAR better for you. Those guys are freakin' awesome! Beyond that, just avoid large crowds.

    In countries with 1st world medical care, the fatality rate for Coronavirus is less than 1%. In China it is about 4%, in Iran, about 19%. Draw your own conclusions.

    For you? What Inor said ^^
    For me? I dont live in a city or town - so I have nothing to add.

    Meet up with local farmers and do what? Stay there? When would you leave to do so? and how willing will they be to sell you food?

    There is ALWAYS work to do on a farm. My grandparents raised 11 kids during the depression on a farm. There was always work to do and they were never hungry


    And farms have wonderful fringe benefits too!!!

    I am sure they would be willing to sell food to you since that is how they make their money. There are bunches of farmer's markets and roadside vegetable markets all over southern Quebec. I have not traveled north of Quebec City or Montreal, but I would bet there are several north as well.
