That thud we heard yesterday was not a frost quake, it was the other shoe dropping.

Entering Canada by land will soon have all the same restrictions as arriving by air. I suspect the less than 72 hour old PCR test requirement will be particularly problematic for those driving 1,500 plus miles home.

Clicky, clicky.

I think if you are 1500 or like u?s over 2000 it would require you to have the test when you are say half way home. An extra night in a motel or your RV just before the border might be needed. Would be so much easier if Canada would allow one of the quick tests

So the snowbirds who cleverly skirted the closed border will be inconvenienced on their way home? Boohoo! says one who stayed home[emoticon]

Two problems there.

First, in most cases a PCR test has a 3 business day turnaround time.

Second, most ‘quick’ (antigen) tests are barely 50% accurate.

Yeah, I stayed home too. I have ENORMOUS sympathy for those clever people who broke the rules and are now paying the price getting home.

Regarding the negative comments towards snowbirds who did travel south I'd like to point out these thoughts,,,Frau Blücher and had to rent a cottage (at great expense) as we are "full-time RV'ers and our summer base closes at the end of April and "fat-man and little boy" (that's what I call trudope and ford as they are doing their level best to destroy our country from above) closed the border so we couldn't haul our fiver' down to our lot in Florida so as a result we are paying for property we own and are not allowed to use it so I suppose some would say boo-hoo to that! Had we put a second fiver to on our lot in Florida we would have done the same thing! I don't see (aside that our government supplements air Canada) how it was safer to allow 200+ people to fly down to Orlando opposed to Frau Blücher and I driving down I-75 in our truck stopping only for fuel, staying one night completely self-contained boon-docking in a Flying J! I'd also like to point out that I'm not denying that covid is a very big problem but we don't know ANYONE who has it both here or at our resort in Florida, I have spoke to several people on-line who did have it and compared it to a real bad cold but nothing like the Canadian government's portrayal of it as the new plague of our times also I can't see we snowbirds are posing that big a risk,, we are mostly older retirees who take our personal health seriously. Last spring when it appeared our resort went into full lock-down on our own and was in full compliance in Canada along with us isolating for two weeks! So with all this new "make it up as we go along" B.S the government is doing I e-mailed both "fat-man and little boy" to pay attention to the numbers of infected snowbirds returning this spring and see weather all this un-due interference into our personal lives was necessary!

Canada’s new travel restrictions at land borders come into effect.

These new restrictions were inevitable.
