Lesson: Whatever you do to a Canadian in a time of confusion and crisis, however you restrict his liberties... you can make it all better with a beer:
Quebec students put under a seven-day quarantine in a small hotel in northern China are getting beer and McDonald's delivered and spending their time playing mahjong, ping-pong and pool. The 27 Université de Montréal students in China to learn Mandarin are in good spirits despite their isolation, David Ownby, director of the Centre for East-Asian Studies at U de M, said Tuesday. “It’s not an unbearable situation. Beer was found – and university students know what to do with beer,” Ownby said.
A beautiful and beery moment in global overreaction.
