To all our patrons and musicians:
October 1st 2021
Well, now it's not a choice.   We have been now forced with all other businesses in Calgary to check vaccination records and IDs in order to avoid other much more damaging restrictions.   We comply with this not only because we have been mandated to but because it is the right thing to do.   Not because we want to punish people who for whatever reason have chosen not to be vaccinated but to encourage those same people to go out and get the shot(s).   The costs of trying to achieve herd immunity naturally are just too high.   Too many deaths, too many people of all ages and backgrounds having life saving medical procedures delayed unnecessarily, too many people losing far too much and for far too long.   Enough is enough already.
We have a common enemy and it is not each other.   It is a pesky, insidious, persistent virus.   For us at least, we don't care about it's origins.   We don't even care if it is real or imagined.   We just want the divisions, restrictions and rhetoric to stop.   And the best way for that to happen is for us all to collectively get to a place where we are either not infectious or at least that if we are, there are so few who are it makes no difference.   The shortest road to that place are vaccinations, plain and simple.
For those of you who feel that your freedoms are being impinged upon, we remind you: At one time only men were allowed in drinking establishments, anyone was allowed to blow tobacco smoke in the presence of anyone else in any drinking establishment.   At one time children were allowed not only in but allowed to consume alcohol in drinking establishments.  Music was banned at times as was simply standing to enjoy a beverage.   Our point is this, we have been adjusting the rules by which barmen and barwomen have had to abide by as long as public houses have existed and this one is just the latest.   Had your shot, good we'll see you at The Can.   Haven't?   Go get vaxed and we'll see you down at The Can.   Don't like that option either?   Then I guess we won't be seeing you down at The Can until this latest rule is relaxed.
Please, please go get vaccinated before you, someone you love or someone we love gets sick and possibly dies.
