Canadian Border Updates
Jay I love your fake news propaganda and government talking points no one is on Facebook or Twitter cause they ban the truth
FYI to all. They removed the polluted "vaccine" thread on general discussion likely because of buckskin spreading so much disinformation there. So now he's here getting his "fix" spreading garbage.
I'm sure this guy has been banned by Twitter, Facebook, etc and this is his last outlet
Nobody is interested in your Qanon, antivaxx, conspiracy theories
This came across my newsfeed last night. Sadly I'm thinking late fall at best but most likely 2022 for fishing.
Interesting... They haven't tested the vaccines doses being administered several months apart, so I guess just another portion of the trial being tested on the general public.
I just talked to my camp owners today and they were allowed in last month (May 11th) after some mickey mouse crap with work permits, they were allowed in to quarantine at their camp for 14 days . So I was wrong in a previous post about camp owner not being allowed in, me bad. I assumed that because Ontario was in full lockdownat the time, they were stuck on this side of the border.
So my understanding after my conversation, Ontario and or all of Canada is going to go through 3 - 21 day phases of reopening with more restrictions being lifted with each phase for residents and business owners. Canadian citizens are still required to wear face diapers, social distance and all that fun stuff. Kind of like what we went through here in Minnesota over the winter and spring.
Camp owners are getting little or no info like to rest of us on if and when border restrictions will start to ease. The Canadian government can't seem to decide or come to consensus on what part of the 3 phase plan to open the border, whether to allow partial or fully vaccinated people in, test people at the border, show proof of a negative test, yadda, yadda yadda. While city and provincial governments officials can offer their opinions and desires on what they want to happen, all decisions will be made in Ottawa and Ottawa alone.
On vaccine front, while they say that about 68% have had their first dose, my camp owners said that most people have been waiting months for their second dose. Kinda makes you wonder how long it will be before they reach that 20% number that they want to require before opening the border.
Personally I do hope for the best, especially for all the camp owners, but I'm not going to hold my breathe. Unless something drastically changes or they pull there heads out of their as... in Ottawa, September might be optimistic at best. Not trying to be negative, just realistic.
Spoke to Canadians who watch over our camp this afternoon. While Ontario will see the move to step one starting later this week, there is no plan to start any talk for travellers and non-essential people.
Wait! Is this the first sign things are going to move toward opening?
Symmetre, thanks for posting that. As a camp owner who has nothing but bills piling up, I also know the remote communities and what happens when it gets there, lack of services is just gut wrenching. Pray for them up there as they will need it. We will be closed again in 2021 and pray things get much better all over not soon enough, hang in there everyone, we only can hope that their are better days ahead.
Looks like three more communities in northern Ontario have declared a state of emergency over fast-rising covid infections.
Not good news, and even less likely we will see anything happen with the border until September.
