What kind of nonsense is that?  Maybe with vaccine rollout.  and when the rest of the world catches up and reaches regional herd immunity, we won't be there because of anti-vaxxers.

Gee, who could have imagined that blocking Canada's access to vaccines just might result in the country turning into a breeding ground for dangerous variants?

Here's hoping they spread south as quickly as possible. May you reap what you've sown.

The only people traveling to Canada from the US at the moment are those bypassing Canada's own restrictions of travelers from the US. Does anyone think those people would be bothered by a mere CDC recommendation?

They're not allowing entry for leisure purposes, like going to visit Niagara falls, but you can still go for business purposes and stuff like that.

Their travel insurance will care. Hopefully nothing bad happens while they're up here because our healthcare is shockingly expensive to uninsured non-residents.

Canada is learning the hard way that just because you have things like "contracts" and "treaties", they mean jack shiat when countries decide to go full vaccine nationalism to protect their own citizens first.

And I can't even blame them. If the tables were turned, I'd be screaming that Canada look after their own citizens first before giving away vaccines.

Also especially annoying is the number of people blaming Trudeau and saying "WHAR DOMESTIC VACCINE PRODUCTION? WHAR?"  As if Trudeau could borrow Obama's time machine to go back and stop the Mulroney government from privatizing that shiat.

I've gone on a fishing trip to Canada every year for 20 years; except for 2020. Now it looks like 2021 is suspect as well.

We cross the border by car between midnight and 4am. We don't come within 6 feet of anyone that's not in our group. However, our group is 20ish people from multiple areas of the States, so we're all 'at risk' from each other. Within our group, everyone will be fully vaccinated by the time of our trip.

That seems pretty safe to me, but, I guess even safer would be to not go.

I've mentioned before that Trudeau's government did kick in some funding for a couple of domestic vaccine production projects in 2018. They anticipated the need, if not the urgency.

I guess my question is whether it's based on cases, or whether it's based on number of cases of new strains of COVID-19?

For example, if Canada has overall lower numbers of the C-virus, but have much much higher rates of infection by variants of if (some of which have been shown to re-infect people who have already had the original disease, and to be somewhat unaffected by the vaccines), then even if Canada has lower overall numbers, we probably don't want to have people traveling there and risk bringing home new strains of the virus while we're still stuck up shiat creek.

No different than if some country had a typhoid or ebola outbreak -- sure it may not be wide spread, but I'm pretty sure I would want to keep travel there to a minimum so as to not bring that shiat back...

I mean, that's literally the government's #1 job.

In about 2 months when US vaccine production comfortably exceeds demand, we'll see if Canada turns their noses up at the surplus doses. I bet a crate of Tim Bits they don't.

As someone who lives in the covid cesspool, I totally agree that vaccinating here needs to happen first so we can reign this thing in before we start worrying about others. And when the time comes, we should bend over backwards to distribute vaccines internationally.

The USA got Mulroney to shut down our production, on the promise that the USA could do it better and WOULD do it better. So yes, the USA has betrayed us. Under Trump. Biden was supposed to send us 1.5 million doses this week or something like that.

Our own provinces are screwing up. Well, that and maybe Biden sent the AZ that we can't use? I forget which he sent.

The real problem is that Trump destroyed the USA's credibility and all of the treaties the USA had going. Worse, McConnell is totally alright with it, as are the congressional Republicans. We are betrayed and Biden can't make promises to repair the treaties if the GOP is just going to betray us again.

Anyhow, regarding the spreading. Clearly Covid is already spreading in the USA and the Fourth Horseman is on another cross-country road trip. Your wish is just as powerful as a rock that keeps tigers away.

Comparatively speaking the rest of the world didn't get a massive number of cases cleared out by an ice storm which effectively locked down over half the country for two weeks.

Ironically, the ice storm proved that lockdowns work extremely well, especially in America.
