Refund of Deposit

Wanted to know the opinion of all of you who regularly go to Canada. I’m the leader of a group. The group can change each year by one or two guys. This year two of the guys our new.One of them is in his 80s and would actually fly into Wisconsin to join us this year. Age and health issues. This was going to be is once-in-a-lifetime fishing trip to Canada. Given that we are scheduled for the second week of the season, it looks like we are out of luck.

The outfitter I use purchased the business about three years ago. We have been going to this location for well over 20 years. Overall, the new owners have been decent and good. However, they are taking the position that they will roll the deposit over for a year or two but they will not return. This is not making the 80-year-old newcomer happy, given that he doesn’t think he will be able to go next year.

I can understand losing the deposit if you voluntarily do not go on the trip. However, this does not seem right to me, given that we cannot cross the border.  What do all of you think?

BP1-Shame & Blame? Where's that coming from? I have not put blame on anyone, nor tried to shame them, I simply, very simply, want the FACTS! I went to your suggested website and read the article and you were only telling half-truths, but I'm not going to dissect everything you said.

Thanks for the website, and anyone else who would like the entire story, check it out

Instead of always playing shame and blame maybe you should try finding out for yourself.  Took me 2 minutes.

A. If they were never tested, how can the claim be made that they were positive?

B. If they were tested and were positive, they would NOT have been allowed to roam free in your country. They would have been quarantined and/or sent back to Haiti. Also, they had to have been prior approved as essential travel.

So either scenario plays out that they could not have been a threat to your country's health. Sorry FGA, this is still a hard pill to swallow.

I really have a tough time with that one! . Let me get this straight, you are stating that your Canadian News has reported that they have knowingly allowed people to cross the border, who at the time of crossing, tested positive ? Is that, in fact, what you are stating?

Fishguidealso, how do you know, for certain, that Canada's letting people in your country who are known to have the virus? Doesn't compute in my pea-brain .

With the snail pace roll out of our vaccinations and expectations of maybe getting our shots in September will keep border closed.Government doesnt seem to concerened about the tourist industry here in Canada,only keeping the big stores open and shutting down the small businesses.Pretty sad.I can see the writing on the wall as to how 2021 season is going to go.I was hoping that maybe if anybody coming up that got vaccinated in states and a negative test and prove of a itinerary could come up but that's not the case either.To me that would seem just fine.Canada has been allowing thousands of people to enter the country with known covid cases. So all this makes me wonder what is really going on.

Anybody that now books a trip without having the border ban lifted is a total fool and deserves losing
