One Direction is no longer just the ex-band my daughter sometimes blasts in the kitchen.
“SOP” is not just dangerously close to something we say when an unmasked shopper cuts in front of us within a two-metre radius.
And “Recovery,” apparently, is not just something that takes 14 days in the COVID-19 universe.
While Premier Doug Ford on Thursday announced that some facilities, notably parks, marinas and golf courses, can reopen beginning Saturday, the key takeaway from Tuesday’s city council discussion of Brockville’s “Recovery Plan” is that we’ll still be looking at a “new normal,” not what used to be normal, for some time.
City councillors earlier this week discussed a recovery plan that, among other things, could see the Brockville Railway Tunnel open by June 30, but with one-directional traffic.
That would be part of the SOP, which is neither a son-of-a-preacher, nor a “thing given or done as a concession of no great value,” as Google defines it, but rather a Standard Operating Procedure.
