It seems Canadians don't do things like other people. With all this talk of social distancing in Ontario, you might still be wondering what is the right amount of distance to keep. Well, if the province's signs are anything to go by, you can use almost any unit of measurement to help stay apart.\nA little bit of light humour doesn't hurt anybody.\nTo accommodate the urge to maintain proper physical distance from those surrounding you, Ontario officials have tried to find whimsical ways to remind others to keep the advised two metres distance from others while they're outside.\nSometimes it can feel a bit bleak and disheartening to be living in the current climate. So creative ways of advising people like this are pretty welcome, if you ask us.\nTo help get the point across, officials have used everything from hockey sticks to cute animals, and even outdoor activities.\nNot only is getting creative with social distancing a funny reminder of how you should do your part to stop the spread of COVID-19, but it should help you remember it better, too.\nStill, though, if all else fails, you can just revert to using a Maple Leafs analogy like Toronto Mayor John Tory did recently.\nOf course, other NHL teams are available.\nA Good Ol' Hockey Stick\nMeanwhile in Canada: Here's how #Canada is explaining proper #Social_Distancing :) pic.twitter.com/Eo7BqI09Sy— Amin Esma (@AminEmaeily) May 20, 2020\nAlthough a hockey stick might not exactly be two metres apart, this is the best way to remind yourself to keep your distance, especially if you're a fan of the sport. Canadian officials highly recommended it, and so do we.\nRestaurants have even been using hockey sticks attached to debit machines for drive-thru payments, so it seems like it's been working.\nMonty Python's Silly Walk\nIt’s possible there is a Monty Python fan working in the sign department in Ottawa. Carry on, I say. 😆❤️ pic.twitter.com/zDsoPDf2BT— Amarie (@ther_am) April 7, 2020\nOttawa's social distancing signs got a bit of a touch-up after one local resident apparently altered social distancing signs around the city, digitally or otherwise.\nThe Monty Python-inspired signs certainly got plenty of attention online.\nThree Dogs\nGreat news! @CityofToronto off-leash dog areas are now permitted to open. @TorontoPFR staff are opening off-leash dog areas across Toronto right now. pic.twitter.com/M96LdHrmWO— John Tory (@JohnTory) May 19, 2020\nMayor Tory seemed to enjoy the city's new reminder of social distancing. Signs displaying three dogs length to length tell people to keep that amount of distance between others. Sorry, three happy dogs. Gotta get those tails wagging.\nThree Geese\nThe Canadian metric system pic.twitter.com/0GbMD944ga— Evan Hadfield (@Evan_Hadfield) May 19, 2020\nBut if a trio of pups doesn't do it for you, that's ok too! To add to the cute dog signs, Toronto also introduced "three geese" signs, because if there's one thing we all know, it's that dogs and geese are interchangeable.\nIt's also a great friendly reminder to stay away from Canadian geese, if you ask us. You don't want to ruffle any feathers.\nA Fishing Rod, Etc.\nThis May long weekend, remember to follow the Public Health Agency of Canada guidelines which advise social distancing and washing hands. Transport Canada is also asking Canadian recreational boaters to stay home. If travel by water is absoloutely necessary, follow the guidelines pic.twitter.com/G64mZmT91I— Bryan May (@_BryanMay) May 16, 2020\nMeanwhile, Cambridge, Ontario MP Bryan May shared this notice from the Public Health Agency of Canada ahead of the Victoria Day weekend as marinas got the green light to reopen.\nIt advised the public to stay one fishing rod apart. If you don't have a rod to hand, they helpfully provided alternatives. If you're wondering, one rod apparently equals half a canoe or 1.5 wakeboards.\nMeanwhile, In Alberta...\nSocial distancing, Canadian prairie style. "Please stand one buffalo away from me, thanks" pic.twitter.com/W7sAVVzwHV— Andi Land 🌺 (@TheRealAndiLand) May 19, 2020\nOK, so this isn't in Ontario, but we thought it's worth noting that over on the prairies, they do things a little differently.\nWe're not sure the buffalo measurement translates in the 6ix, really. Try raccoons instead!\nSo there you go. Don't say you're learning nothing while school's out!
