The Chinese word for "crisis" (simplified Chinese: 危机; traditional Chinese: 危機; pinyin: wēijī, wéijī) is, in Western popular culture, frequently but incorrectly said to be written with two Chinese characters signifying "danger" (wēi, 危) and "opportunity" (jī, 机; 機).

JFK had famously interpreted it but apparently incorrectly.

But yes, most assuredly, undoubtedly hopeful that good will come out of this in a new re-birth of opportunity.

Perhaps it is a good thing we didn't go. News report that 12 people poisoned in a Markham restaurant. All went to intensive care. There was the poison aconite in the food that used Kaempferia Galanga and Radix Aconiti Kusnezoffi powders. How lucky can we be?

Yikes. Had some amazing hand cut noodles with braised beef back in Toronto when we visited the factory last month.

According to a news article I read, there had not yet been any indication the poisoning was intentional.

Either way, through negligence or intent, an unacceptable result.

Are there any thoughts for holding it elsewhere this year, or is it off the table completely?

Simple answer - no.
