Canada to end covid restrictions 10/1/22

Good job Canada, a little over due.  I might have a wedding in Toronto in the near future , now I`ll make it.

Canada announced on Monday that it would remove all remaining coronavirus entry restrictions, including testing and quarantine requirements, effective Oct. 1, ending some of the world’s longest and most stringent rules.

Travelers, regardless of citizenship status, will no longer have to submit public health information, proof of vaccination, coronavirus test results before or after arrival or be subject to random P.C.R. testing, the Public Health Agency of Canada said. The country is also removing its requirement to wear masks while on planes and trains.

“Thanks largely to Canadians who have rolled up their sleeves to get vaccinated, we have reached the point where we can safely lift the sanitary measures at the border,” Jean-Yves Duclos, the minister of health, said in a statement.

OR the conspiratorial view:

As much as anything it might be due to the fact that the Blue Jays are almost certain to make the playoffs and vax status has been a big issue all season long.

Sadly, I think Bruce is right.  It took that to change it while the tourism industry is dying.   Concern there in the outfitter industry is that they've lost the business permanently.

At Farm progress Show a gal at a booth was trying to peddle fishing trips up in Canada, she had pat answers down that "it won`t be long a the requirements will be lifted"  My buddy went fishing this summer and just stayed on the Canadian waters, so no shot was needed.   Canada also has to change putting their ássholes on the border who tear apart campers ... just have drug sniffing dogs and don`t be jerks about it, everybody has a "border story".   Canadians get nicer futher in the country 🙂
