A Petition that is Now Trending Online with Many Tens-of-Thousands of Signatures

Posted July 13th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

A Brief Foreword from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper –

We sure don’t need scenes like this with cars from states like Florida, George, Texas and the Carolinas . crossing the border. How much of the virus would they now be carrying across? Leave it in Trumpland, please!

If you are a recent, regular follower of news and commentary on Niagara At Large, you know that we have supported keeping the Canada-U.S. border closed to all but absolutely essential traffic for however long is necessary.

Our position is a response to the dangerous spiking of COVD-19 cases and deaths in the United States in the wake of the totally reckless and irresponsible leadership of the current U.S. president and of many U.S. governors in states like Texas, Florida, Georgia and South Dakota, who would rather lives Trump’s lies about this killer pandemic than protect the health and welfare of American people.

Now here is the petition, including a link that  you can click on to join tens of thousands of others in signing it, recently launched on Change.org by Ontario, Canada resident Mark Kossek –

Keep the Canada-U.S. Border Closed!

Members of the US Congress have urged Canada to begin reopening the Canada-US border.

The border has been shut down to all but essential travel since March 21 and the closure has been extended to July 21. Petition starter Mark wants Canada to keep the border closed beyond this date. He says: “America has not implemented the proper steps necessary to control the COVID-19 pandemic.” If you think the border should be kept closed beyond July 21, sign now in this critical moment.

Keep the border closed!!!

America has not implemented the proper steps necessary to control the Covid-19 pandemic within it’s borders.

This has been made very evident by the most recent spikes throughout many American states and the governments blatant ignorance toward the virus.

From screen shot from CNN, during the first week of this July. And the COVID-19 cases keep jumping by leaps and bounds.

Our shared border with America should remain closed until America has implemented a reasonable plan to control the pandemic and have shown a reasonable downward trend in cases nationally.

Essential cross border movement should still continue.
