I was planning a fishing trip to Ucluelet this summer. I'm from Alberta. Here's the message I rec'd yesterday from the company that I used to book our accomodations:
"For Canadians traveling across interprovincial borders by car, there is a possibility that they will be stopped at a checkpoint and asked to provide documentation of cottage ownership. If you are unable to produce it, then you may be forced to turn back.

In order to meet Provincial Health guidelines and Work-safe BC guidelines we must adhere to the guidelines of this ever changing situation. Where inter provincial travel is not permitted there will be a local requirement that we check ID from travelers to ensure they are residents of BC

Road checks have been ongoing at the Tofino and Ucluelet junction to date over all long weekends and holidays, as the summer months come on they most likely will become a daily occurrence."

Sounds to me like they are advising against any out-of-province travel to BC. This accommodation was in a commercial rental not a campground.

Some of this is being generated by the residents of the small communities themselves. Tofino, Uclulet etc. The have small regional hospitals with limited ICU beds and sometimes one ventilator. People need to be adults about this and think about the consequences of bringing the virus to small communities.

Re Fire fighter cooperation. Fire fighters are usually educated first responders. They would be the first to recognize the need for caution in situations like this.

I hope BC residents remember that when the forest fires start, and they need out of province help.


Two totally different subjects.


Nice try.


Fighting Forrest fires falls under “ essential services” and the B.C. Govt ( Forrest Service) has been working on safe work plans since this all started, as there has been notices / bulletins stating some of their plans made public.
And just guessing they have been tweaking their plans as things change concerning C-19.

BC is making it very clear that it is BC residents only in the provincial campgrounds. If a camper were to have non-BC plates, they could/will be refused.

I'd think a driver's license would be the deciding factor as to residency, not a license plate.

Cool Idea. Maybe Arizona could do the same and keep the state campgrounds open only to AZ residents during the snowbird season.

Section 6 of the Charter might interfere with Provinces or Territories discriminating against people based on residency. You can’t blockade borders inside Canada unless you apply the emergency reason to everyone.

But it makes good divisive news and invokes an appearance of taking action against “those people” from the other place.

They would do better to speak to people as adults and say in the interest of controlling spread, you people camp in your back yard and we’ll stay home in ours this summer.

Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba are all saying essentially the same thing: opening for their provincial residents only, with a few exceptions. BC campgrounds are normally overbooked so this is a solution to manage campground capacity and social distancing. I'm disappointed at not being able to camp in my usual favorite sites but understand completely under the circumstances. It will give each province the opportunity for their residents to explore their own back yard. Not a bad thing.

I don't think Arizona wants to lose out on all those Canuck bucks.

Yep. Got some little canoe trips planned on a couple local rivers, some moto camping planned, camper trip or two not involving “campgrounds”.

No need to visit B(ring) C(ash) this year [emoticon]

It will still be beautiful in the future.
