Title: Canadian border closed but...
Post by: taxid on Mar 18, 2020, 04:58 PM
I'm confused. So if the Canadian border is closed to non-Canadian citizens or permanent residents to slow the spread of the coronavirus, but U.S. citizens are still be permitted to cross into Canada why bother? Don't get me wrong I'm good with this as I'm a U.S. citizen complete with a passport and may be traveling north to do some fishing but...?

Does anyone see where I'm going with this?

I guess it applies to flights coming in?

I heard you could still cross bit had to be quarantined for 14 days. So being out in a lake by yourself might be just the thing. Not sure if they would allow this or not.

I am personally glad of this decision and it will become clear as to why. I have always lived in the Niagara region. With that said, I have always had family on both sides of the border. In addition, I am married to a Canadian woman, who has long since become a citizen of the United States. Her son\ my stepson, has decided to make his home in Canada along with his American fiance. Which means that our grandchildren are Canadian. And all this is just the recent tip of the iceberg, I have relatives in Canada from my late fathers side of my family, and my wife has a large extended family in Canada as well.
Therefore, we don't need to look at the border as a "Berlin Wall" so to speak. It's nice that we will still be able to see one another when and if we need to. 😃

you have to walk the tunnel nude where you will be sprayed to decontaminate.

Border is closed to all non-essential travel - both directions.  I'm sure there are exceptions. But in general, no visitors,shoppers, vacationers, etc.  Commercial trucks are still moving as they were.

After further investigation, the Berlin Wall has been erected. My wife and I are now segregated from our children and her side of the family. Sad times indeed.
😥😢
Prayers and blessings for us all.

sad times indeed!  goodbye freedom.  at least we got to know how it used to be!  will never be the same again.  even the fishing hunting sites aren't freedom.  the sensor us more and more each year.  likely why most have stopped coming around.
