They need to criminally charge every one of those motherf*ckers. We worked really hard to get our numbers this low, and some disease-ridden 'muricans are going to come here and f*ck that up, I don't think so. There are some real selfish bastards down there.

It's not that farking hard for a Canadian who wants to get to the USA to do so, and the same is said for the USA to Canada.

People just have to farking want to and give a shiat.

no one does. Canada doesn't exist and is a lie.

Didn't somebody already mention the theory that Americans are getting into Canada by pretending to be on their way to Alaska? We obviously are going to need two Beautiful walls, about 9,000-10,000 kilometers (or even miles) long and staffed by Mexicans.

Good thing Mexico has agreed to send us more Mexican farm workers despite the Covid deaths. Maybe we should put in an order for 10,000,000 Mexicans to guard our borders, after the Elections are over, of course, and they are not needed to write in Hillary Clinton.

Trump dollars. You can only spend them at Trump Land. They're like money that nobody takes anywhere, even in Trump Land stores and rides. Only "fun". You know, like the "Disney Money" they sell you at Disney World and Disney Land. They don't even take it in the "Park", although you might be able to negotiate with hookers.

Some Americans are idiots. You'all should just close the border. There are other ways to get to Alaska.
 
2020-06-22 2:13:12 AM  
In rural BC here and most here still believe it's a hoax. The Americans crossing the border won't matter much when the small town locals are still coughing in each others faces like nothing is wrong.
 
2020-06-22 2:13:44 AM  
I suggest we build a wall.  A big beautiful wall, the likes of which no one has ever seen (especially Mexico... one that works)...  And make the Americans pay for it.

They had loopholes like this in New Zealand, and what did it get them? Goes to show, you simply can't give people an inch or they'll take a 200 mile detour and cough on everything.

"In the park, we do have U.S. citizens who have been there since before the pandemic started," Fontaine said. "And that's not an issue. People have a right to live in peace."

I felt an actual twinge of sadness at that statement.

Huh? USD recently hit 1.4 to CAD, the second highest rate since 2001. It's currently just off that high at 1.36. The reason is your most valuable commodity is crude oil and that's more in the crapper than out economy for the moment.

They should tell them to get farked and take a plane.
 
2020-06-22 3:10:33 AM  
Under current rules, Americans may come through Canada to get home or get to work in Alaska, but they must travel along a direct path.
When I drove the ALCAN in the 1990s, it was the exact opposite of a direct path, consisting entirely of turns to the left or right. Perusing Wikipedia, I see there has been a considerable amount of improvement done since then, but I am sure there are still sections of the winding-in-and-winding-out that long-time travelers will remember.

Remember when no one gave a shiat about covid-19 until Rudy Gobert got sick?  And only when it was staring you right in the face did ANYONE begin to even take action here.

Spreading his hands all over the mics and stuff.  I think in general we really don't give a shiat.

So this really should come as no surprise.

It's just never a threat until we just don't know where this threat came from.  And then it's not a threat anymore while it's still a threat.

What the fark is going on

A developed nation restricting the movements of people from a shiathole country.

Okay AA+.

I mean while I don't know what the fark this dude is talking about, you guys spent how much money on beer his pandemic to get what?

Also, that's good for our manufacturing sectors and I'm not much for Alberta who never saves.

Point is we actually had a surplus for a decade, which means we can actually afford to borrow now.

Yeah, that's such cherry picked bullshiat.  I don't think us Metis or first nstions were quite allowed to live in peace, but thanks for setting the precident.

The existence of Manitoba proves this 'right' never existed.  It's clearly enforced as a privilege based on the remote fly in reservations.  And the extreme inequality in who gets what and how.

When you native, you get bothered for living in your own home by foreigners because your suspicious to them.  That you'll take their stuff obviously.

The better "work around" would be to go across the Peace Arch crossing from WA to BC and just say you're going to Point Roberts.

Here's the thing: lying about your purpose for crossing the border can get you tossed into jail, banned from entering the country for life, or in the case of endangering the public of Canada, even a fine for up to $750,000 and 10 years in jail. The cops were being nice. $1200 ticket is a warning.

Not quite that simple. USD doesn't move directly in concert with American economic fortunes. It's more complicated than that, as USD is the world's "reserve currency." So, when the global economy takes a downturn - and, because the USA is such a big chunk of the world's economy, that means the USA - companies and people "sell off" their risk assets. And, foreign currency is considered "risky" versus holding the world's standard reserve currency.

So, often what you'll see is that (paradoxically) that as the US economy sinks, the currency actually increases in value vis a vis other global currencies, because what is bad for the US economy is bad for the global economy. Same goes when the global economy is perceived to be doing well - the USD goes back down versus foreign currencies.

Just check out that March spike!

Of course, versus a specific currency you'll see swings related to an extreme political situation in that area (see the UK's sinking fortunes thanks to Brexit) but generally the USD has as much or more to do with global economics than the comparison country's specific situation.

I'm in rural Ontario and so far we have had 34 confirmed cases and 0 deaths in the entire county. For most small towns I'd say the risk is quite low it's not like you have packed elevators and buses to spread it around.

You do, however, have meatpacking plants, and - just like in America - they don't like admitting that they are superspreading hot spots for the epidemic. Took three weeks to disclose.

And you should be noticing from America's experience that rural states and counties are more vulnerable to Covid-19 than cities are.
