I'll be aiming at the Fall season which opens on August 16th. I assume most other guys are doing the same.

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.

I would like to hear the logic for judging health risk status of an individual based on his/her citizenship.

“There will be as many as seven phases”

Heck, why not 77 phases??! It’s the Canadian government after all....

Probably seven phases, each broken down into multiple sub-phases... Oh Canada.

Fingers crossed the closures are eliminated in July.

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.

Only FREE for Canadian native, and refugee, Everyone else has to pay, i’m not sure where you get that idea it’s free, oh wait a minute you’re not from Canada you’ve just been listening the news LOL

America showcased no better in the handling of this.

The end result of liberal policy is always a freedom killer. What’s sad is the nutless sheep that stand in line advocating for it.

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!

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.

Province can suggest but it's Federal who are the decision makers. Thank god because Ford wants to keep it closed.

Scoot…. I’m betting you and Ryan have been playing golf quite a bit this summer. With your tan, you’d probably have no problems crossing. If anyone asks, just tell them you’re a Honduran National…

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.

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...
