We spent two solid months in complete lockdown with only essential businesses open, shopping only when we had to and even then standing in epic lineups just to get into the stores, and epic lineups to check back out again.  We still have long lineups inside the stores even now that we're in phase 2 of re-opening, some of our areas (including the one I live in) have mandators public indoor space mask bylaws (wear one or GTFO!), but things are continuing to look up here, our cases are dropping, deaths are dropping, phase 3 repoening is around the corner (already happening in many areas), and life is starting to return to some semblance of normalcy.

We haven't been going through this just so a bunch of plague rats from south of the border who don't have the slightest bit of good sense to stay the fark home during a pandemic can come here and put us right back to square one.  Stay the fark home until your dumpster fire burns the through rest of its fuel.

Pretty much. If there's a more Canadian sight than masked people in a polite queue to buy legal weed, I haven't seen it.

Why would anyone willingly go to Canada anyways? The fishing? It's expensive, cold, boring, and everyone is an asshole.

One of the Minnesota counties on the Canadian border has had zero cases, zero deaths, never had any Covid-19.  The other border counties are almost as virus free.  These people would normally cross the border for everyday lives.  The Northwest Angle being the example.  Don't believe everything is as out of control as the media wants you to.

The trick is that Canadians aren't morons. We have very few complete morons in leadership positions because when elections are held we don't all develop dementia. Meanwhile, in the US, I read daily that yet another governor has jumped on the "masks are bad" bandwagon. WTF is wrong over there? Is this the result of decades of lead in the water supply?
