This, exactly, but alas Saskatchewan is a special province and the only one to not have access to the federal government's financial supports thanks to our own provincial government's inaction.

As far as the Mercury Cafe goes, I have actually never been there so my gf and I are going to give a try this weekend and help provide them some support. I hope everyone here who has the means goes out and helps out our struggling local businesses. Consider takeout if not dining in, when available, instead of using exploitative food delivery apps.
