Yes, of course.
But again, the question likely is whether it is worth some economic disruption for the freedom to decide their own affairs.
The UK, when faced with a similar choice, decided it was, who could fault Scotland for deciding the same?
If Scotland can get back into the EU then due to the revenue sharing program, they would be a net beneficiary.
So Scotland would simply be ditching London for Brussels in terms of their stuff being paid for.
Who said anything about not trading?
The EU will always trade with the UK. What they will do is make it as cumbersome and painful as humanly possible.
This hurts the UK more than...
Yes, like I said, they are going to have a interesting future. They have controls over immigration, refugees, domestic production and distribution of things like vaccines, their own free trade deals, and the like, but are going to take a hit economically due to border complications.

And if a majority of Scots decide the vote to leave the UK for a romantic view of a last period that predated nationalism then I don't really see a problem with it.
It does make me happy with how Canada has dealt with nationalism in Quebec however. Sending generous...
The UK has a interesting future ahead of them,where they can either soar outside the EU , crash outside of it, or muddle along.

There are always the economic reasons for not doing something, and then the emotional appeal.
But for the UK, they had this same issue and they chose to leave the EU on what was largely a emotional appeal of they were better off alone. While it has been muddled by the pandemic, there is...
Could be seasonal though.
Last summer lead to a dramatic drop in cases in both countries as well. Seeing as Canada isn't really warm yet, this could also be the case.
Also, during this entire thing, Africa has been strangely immune to this pandemic.
So long as the booking system isn't leading to backlog I don't care one way or another about it. If it is, I would scrap it.
If the provinces want 2-3 days supply on hand to deal with potential delays, okay. But with the Ontario government saying they can vaccinate 150k a day, they need...
Allow people to sign a waiver saying they understand the risk of a blood clot and open it up to the general population.
There are likely more than enough people 18+ who would take any vaccine if offered.
