Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Ontario, BC lift capacity limits as Saskatchewan struggles” – below is their description.

Although Canada is not out of the pandemic yet, parts of British Columbia and Ontario are lifting their COVID-19 capacity limits as of midnight Monday.

In B.C., venues in Metro Vancouver and on Vancouver Island will finally return to full capacity. Ontario is also aiming to end all its pandemic restrictions by early next year.

But the easing of rules for both provinces comes while Saskatchewan’s hospitals are still grappling with the strain of COVID-19 patients.

As Heather Yourex-West explains, the situation unfolding in that Prairie province could serve as a cautionary tale.
