Canada-U.S. border to remain closed until July 21

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed on Tuesday that the Canada-U.S. border closure on non-essential travel will remain in place until July 21.

The previous agreement was set to expire on Sunday.

The extension is not a surprise — media reports last week suggested both countries were holding talks about prolonging the border restrictions, and Canadian leaders have expressed little desire to reopen the border this early in the recovery. To date, there have been about 99,000 Covid-19 cases in Canada, compared to more than two million in the U.S.

Key context: Canada and the U.S. first announced a temporary border closure on March 21, which barred all non-essential travel between the two countries but left the border open to trade and essential workers. The closure has since been extended every month.


The border will stay closed until Justin Trudeau comes out of hiding and follows his own guidelines.

Believe me, as long as there is an irrespossible lunatic in the White House discouraging Americans from wearing masks and commenting at a rally that they should slow down the Covid 19 tests I doubt that many Canadians want to see the border between the two nations opened.

Ontario and Quebec are still having issues with the virus though appear to be slowly on the mend (though there will be a second wave, no doubt). But with Trump re-opening the U.S. economy the deaths in the United States will be tragically, predictably on the rise. Canada is in a pandemic battle of it own that will be tough enough to defeat. But Americans have a leader who doesn't care how many more die as a result of it. Keep the insanity south of the border. Keep that border closed.
