Perhaps he will. laugh The decision to remain closed was renewed by both Canada and the US however. It is a mutual agreement.

While I normally wouldn't object to anti-Trudeau posts, the Trump government agreed, so it isn't just Justin. It was a joint decision. Perhaps the US even proposed the extension. Who knows?

Don't shoot the messenger. This was posted in the Toronto Star.

Canada-U.S. land-border closure has been extended to Dec. 21
By Tonda MacCharles - Ottawa Bureau

Wed., Nov. 18, 2020
Article was updated 7 hrs ago

OTTAWA—Canada and the United States will extend COVID-19 restrictions on non-essential cross-border travel for at least another month, to Dec. 21, the Star has learned.

A senior Canadian government official told the Star the agreement initially reached in March with the U.S. administration of President Donald Trump has been renewed, by mutual agreement, for another 30 days, with no end date set.

The deal allows the north and south flow at land crossings of essential workers, like health-care professionals or truckers carrying goods, but it puts restrictions on non-essential travellers.

Canada has tweaked its limits on non-essential travel to make it easier for international students, couples and those with a dying relative to enter, however they are still subject to a 14-day mandatory quarantine order.

Although the U.S. election this month saw Joe Biden named president-elect with a vow to crack down on the spread of the coronavirus south of the border, COVID-19 continues to ravage America.

And public opinion polls show most Canadians do not want the border reopened at this stage.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urged Canadians to avoid wintertime “snowbird” travel south.

“Canada’s official travel advisory is that all Canadians should avoid international travel. The pandemic continues to cause significant challenges around the world including in the southern United States and people are safest when they stay at home in Canada,” he told reporters.

“Obviously if people do choose to go, that is their choice but they need to make sure that they have good health insurance, good travel insurance, also that they make sure that wherever they’re going there is sufficient health care capacity, that it is not busy and beginning to get overwhelmed if something goes wrong. But that’s why as a government we recommend people not travel internationally while this pandemic is going on.”

For sure Steve, the Us is just as much worried about the virus spread, and with good cause perhaps.

Call it cabin fever. laugh

I believe all non essential travel is banned. I do know the Yukon Govt. decided last week not to allow Alaskan snowbirds to travel through Yukon en-route to southern climes...

Travel is a tricky point, even within my province ,it is highly discouraged. I was going to take the wife over to Vancouver Island for some storm watching. Waves pounding in from the open Pacific can be pretty impressive. The small communities have said they don't want visitors. So I took my hunting camper off the truck. It's classed as a car for ferry fees. The trailer on the other hand, ouch. Yesterday our new case count was 762, a record. .

Strangely enough air travel is not shut down. Flights into and out of Canada restricted to 4 airports. Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal

Did Silver ( well Hanley really) actually stop Alaskans from traveling through the territory?

Yes they did stop Alaskan snowbirds from coming through with their motor homes. The Alaskan governor intervened on their behalf but was denied. Essential travel like military people are still allowed through but they are getting harassed by locals more and more it seems. Kind of funny, there was a story in the paper recently about Canadian snowbirds going to Florida and apparently they are allowed to do so. Some friends of ours from Calgary have a house in AZ and they went south about a month ago and no problems.

Students are being allowed to drive through headed south.


Mark Begich, Joaquin Jackson, and Heller resistance... Three huge reasons to worry about the NRA.

If you look up the restrictions, Alaskans can drive through Yukon and BC. But it has to be a direct route. and it's time sensitive .

What's going on with the people that live in the Northwest Angle is crazy.
The Canadian snow birds are pouring across the border headed for Florida and other southern states but the Americans living in the NWA can't even get their medicines or supplies. The Minnesota and US governments have totally ignored their plight. Manitoba doesn't give a chit.
Lake of the Woods is icing over now so boat travel to mainland Minnesota isn't possible until it freezes enough to drive on.

Hey, but it's OK to fly into Canada from anywhere. No quarantine required. Apparently, it has been decided, airports are sterile and a virus cannot be transmitted on a plane. Meanwhile, residents of Horsefly, BC can't gather in the community hall without masking up and staying well apart. We are being manipulated by a bunch of urban-dwelling, pseudo-intellectual idiots.

For Alaskans using the road that we help pay for and maintain, but have no say in travel is upsetting!

Greydog, I think those who fly in have to quarantine for 14 days. How strict and careful can be questioned. In our area ,we have community spread , at that stage the only way is more restrictions.

From what I understand you can drive through, you can not tourist. .
