“First the public was told vaccinations were the key to re-opening the border. Yet the vaccinated continue to be shut out. Then it was said, 75% partially vaccinated and 20% fully vaccinated was the threshold Canada needed to meet to loosen restrictions. That goal has been reached and still the border restrictions were extended for another month.”                                       -Brian Higgins, U.S. Democratic  Democratic Congressman representing border communities in New York State

Stop! Even if you are a fully vaccinated Canadian, you are not crossing that border for, possibly for the remainder of the summer, according to some reports. . Trudeau government seems determine to lock fully vaccinated people in Canada.

During a Sunday interview Canada’s Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness discussed the extension of existing travel restrictions between the United States and Canada.

“We haven’t reached the finish line, and the finish line is when a significant majority of Canadians, approximately 75%, are fully vaccinated,” said (Minister Bill) Blair.

Canada-United States Interparliamentary Group Co-Chair Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) released the following statement in response:

“First the public was told vaccinations were the key to re-opening the border. Yet the vaccinated continue to be shut out. Then it was said, 75% partially vaccinated and 20% fully vaccinated was the threshold Canada needed to meet to loosen restrictions. That goal has been reached and still the border restrictions were extended for another month.

“It is difficult to have a successful game plan when the goalposts continue to be moved.  The lack of transparency, clear communication and a failure to layout expectations on the U.S. – Canada border reopening plan has been maddening for the public who simply want to know what’s it going to take to get this border open.”

  1. Coach of the Montreal Canadiens is an example of why we need to proceed slowly. Within days of getting his 2nd jab he comes down with the virus. As much as I want to see the border opened I support it kept closed.
    I await the 4th wave from Alberta in July!
