So Canadians coming back won't be required to quarantine for 14 days if fully vaccinated. I guess you're fully vaccinated and American you're still a risk. *rolls eyes*

None of this stuff has made sense. Letting some vaccinated folks come while restricting others is just more nonsense.

It sure makes it tough to make an August 1st sheep hunt in the Yukon with no idea what the heck is going to happen. It’s like it’s a big secret. These liberal loser politicians are such chicken sh*t fools. They are afraid to act on just about anything except their crazed agendas.

LOL, in Manitoba, they just set our current restrictions until June 26. Until June 26 we aren't even allowed to have a non-family member in the house. So not sure how vaccinated Americans will be coming across the border on June 22.

But you're right, there is talk from a federal level at least about it opening, which is certainly positive. I would not be counting on coming up for any tail end of spring bear season.

Those two idiots may be announcing another two years of borders shut down.

All joking aside, let’s hope it’s for real this time. It will be interesting to see how they spin their BS about all they have done etc.

Let’s go hunt!

From: JTreeman

I’m hopeful as well, but my question (out of ignorance) would be: even if Canada opens the border, what roll do the individual Provence/territory have in allowing NR in their borders?

If I can get into Canada, but BC makes me quarantine that does little good.

Obviously no one “knows” just wondering out loud i guess.

Canada's Trudeau says he discussed border with Biden, but no deal (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Sunday he has spoken with U.S. President Joe Biden about how to lift pandemic-related border restrictions between the two countries but made clear no breakthrough has been achieved. U.S. and Canadian business leaders have voiced increasing concern about the ban on non-essential travel in light of COVID-19 that was first imposed in March 2020 and renewed on a monthly basis since then. The border measures do not affect trade flows. The border restrictions have choked off tourism between the two countries. Canadian businesses, especially airlines and those that depend on tourism, have been lobbying the Liberal government to relax the restrictions. Canada last week took a cautious first step, saying it was prepared to relax quarantine protocols for fully vaccinated citizens returning home starting in early July. Trudeau, speaking after a Group of Seven summit in Britain, said he had talked to Biden “about coordinating measures at our borders as both our countries move ahead with mass vaccination.” Canada is resisting calls for the border measures to be relaxed, citing the need for more people to be vaccinated. The United States is ahead of Canada in terms of vaccination totals. “We will continue to work closely together on moving forward in the right way but each of us always will put at the forefront the interests and the safety of our own citizens,” Trudeau told a televised news conference when asked the Biden conversation. “Many countries, like Canada, continue to say that now is not the time to travel,” Trudeau added, though he said it is important to get back to normalcy as quickly as possible.

Blah blah blah. Those two Bozos want to drag this mess on as long as they can. The longer they can the more they can make people dependent on them. It’s one sick mess for sure.

From: spike buck

Issue is: Biden does not want to and will not issue a Vaccine Passport.... Trudeau wants to go by Passports to make sure those crossing into Canada have had the vaccine. He wants a passport for International Travelers but not for Domestic Travelers. So sounds like Canada has no choice but to wait for herd immunity...

Total lack of leadership on both sides, while the folks that do the heavy lifting get punished economically. Two fools, and that's being kind. It's not longer about the " science" it's about control.

Whatever you believe about the cdc and their science. The lady from cdc just said a couple days ago, vaccinated people can travel safely, and are of no threat to infect others. If this had anything to do with actually keeping people safe that should be enough to open up completely right there. It's 100% about control and politically motivated. His base is all for staying shutdown and taking all handouts they can get. If i was a betting man I'd say Sept opening to only vaccinated people. He could give a crap about what he's doing to small businesses and anyone related to the travel industry. You know the people who actually work!

Feel like it’s been more about control the whole time Barry….. sick and disgusting mess were in

Getting extremely tired of the border being shut. US president running around Europe flapping his mouth while every ugly problem at home festers. Same said about Canada's PM.

Trudeau wants the middle class out your either rich or poor and dependent on the government so they can control u he wants to break as many people as he can he will keep the border shut as long as possible to achieve the agenda. This was never about covid the one world government plan it’s all biblical.

For what its worth... I just received an email from the Quebec Outfitters stating that the border is officially open for CA residents and to book your fishing and end of season bear hunts now....(??) They are stating it wont be long for US residents. No clue if its actually true but its a legit site I get frequent info emails from and have for years.

from canada north outfitters today:

The backbone of Inuit Life is the ability to travel. Traveling on the land to hunt, to fish, to gather country food, to see family in other communities. Time spent with family and friends keeping the mind and body healthy. The travel restrictions we have endured in the south have as we all know impacted our mental and physical well-being. My Nunavut spring 2021 trip confirmed any doubt that the ability to travel is incredibly important, whether you are a gypsy like I am where traveling is like breathing or a periodic traveller adventurer it is time to travel! Nunavut will now be accepting vaccinated travellers this season and we have been told we will get news on the Canadian border opening plans in the next 5 to 7 days! Long awaited positive news and traveling!! We will be doing an update next week as we are clear on travel into Canada.

More bullshit, not just in Canada, USA is not much better

Canadians who have been dosed with the AstraZeneca shot may not be allowed into some events in the U.S. until the Food and Drug Administration gives the vaccine the green light. Rocker Bruce Springsteen is reopening his live Broadway show in New York next week, but fans who want to attend need to show proof that they have been inoculated with vaccines approved by the FDA, such as Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. Those who received AstraZeneca, yet to be approved for use in the U.S., would not be allowed into the event, setting what may be a disappointing precedent for Canadians looking to attend events across the border.
