I wonder what would happen if any tried to claim refugee status. Canada has a tradition of taking in conscientious objectors (Vietnam draftees) and some people will fall under protected status (BIPOC, undocumented aliens, etc...). We've had a bunch of claims since Trump was elected, but I believe the bar for entry has been too high for most claimants.

As a Canadian, I would be okay with this, provided they met the criteria and tested negative for covid. We're having a field day picking up all sorts of talent that would normally go to the US, and have a humanitarian obligation as well.

My friend lives up in Victoria and she said that it's common to report Americans right now.  Any license plates and people with obvious accents get called in.  And rightly so.

I should add that US citizens are supposed to be allowed to pass through to Alaska, but it seems that's used as an excuse to vacation and otherwise fark off.  It's just like the Sioux territories in South Dakota. You can pass through, but you ain't hanging around.

I'm trying to get home to Halifax for Christmas but there's no way I'm self-quarantining the entire time.

So knock it off, America. I can't spend 12 days alone with my Mom.

Stay down there with the heathens and rats.

NathanAllen: The economic devistation in NW Ontario from a lost fishing tourist season is going to be felt for years.

How many lodge owners and guides are shiat out of luck?

Hopefully next year they can sort out a plague rat one week quarantine cabin and boat only policy.


Dafuq you talking about? Outfitters are busier than they've ever been. Domestic tourism is through the roof.

WelldeadLink: "That pattern prompted the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to remind people about the ban on non-essential travel before the Labour Day weekend - traditionally a busy time for cross-border visits."

Story published on the Sunday of that weekend.
Good jorb!


Wut?  The press release came out on August 31st.  The article is about people showing up anyways.

nobody in Burlington does butt stuff. That's why they go to rub and tugs in Guelph.

What good would a 1 week quarantine be with a disease that has a 2 week infection window?

We typically cross into ON several times each year at Sault Ste. Marie ON/MI.  During our (usually) extended wait time on the International Bridge, I have an opportunity to take a look at the vehicles departing Canada.  It usually runs about 98% ON plates.  I think that the WalMart in the US Soo and the surrounding casinos may be taking a beating.

Had to look that up. It sounded like some sort of military term for a rocket delivery system and not the 50th term in the 'whites vs. world' culture thing. Lame.
