Travel restrictions will ease, eventually: Trudeau

Canada prepares to ease quarantine rules for vaccinated travelers: Bloomberg

When pressed on when he expected border restrictions to ease, B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix said Monday he didn't wish to make any guesses.

Trudeau did not give details and did not mention what would happen to Americans who had two doses, saying only that restrictions would remain until more people had received their second doses of vaccine.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki did little to suggest otherwise Tuesday.

"I'm sure that when that decision is made, we would communicate through diplomatic channels, but I don't have anything to predict about the timeline".

Every month since March 2020, Canada and the USA have extended the border restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Congressman Chris Jacobs (R - NY27) introduced legislation Tuesday, the Northern Border Reopening Transparency Act, that would require the Biden administration to provide transparency into efforts to reopen the border.

Before heading to the border, get informed.

But last week, two Liberal MPs - Nathaniel Erskine-Smith and Wayne Easter, co-chairman of the Canada-U.S. Inter-Parliamentary Group, a bilateral committee of lawmakers and MPs - joined forces with Higgins to echo his call for a new approach.

Police are in contact with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police about whether terrorism charges should be pursued, Waight said. His comments come after police said the motorist that killed the four family members did so deliberately.

Some travel and tourism businesses say it's urgent. "Tell us what the road map and the plan and the metrics are". "Action is long overdue".

If a traveler is allowed to enter Canada, they should know that strict screening and safety measures are still in place including a 14-day mandatory quarantine and pre- on- and post-arrival testing requirements.

The government should commit to a date to reopen the Canada-U.S. land border - which has been closed to non-essential travellers for more than a year - in order to help an industry that has been "hardest hit and will be the last to recover" from the pandemic, said Beth Potter, president and CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada.

The Saskatchewan government said those visitors should be allowed to cross into Canada.

Canadian and USA business leaders also banded together Tuesday, issuing a fresh appeal to the federal government to start putting plans in place.

US lawmakers have also been pestering the Biden administration to begin easing restrictions before the summer travel season begins in earnest.

Anyone coming to Canada would need to be fully vaccinated before arriving, Trudeau said during an afternoon event, because the country can't risk another wave of COVID-19.

"President Biden formally asked for a border reopening plan immediately after taking office, and so far, Canada has been slow to make any public progress".
