...a very common perception outside the field of demography (size and structure of populations) "we spatial analysts" run across all the time. Especially when related to Canada (density/spatially).

The 4th largest city in North America is Toronto, with a tremendous population density. This, right behind LA, New York, and Mexico City. Almost the entirety of the Canadian population live in a handful of cities (Greater Toronto Area; Greater Montreal Area; Greater Vancouver Area; etc; etc). The exact same viral contagion dynamics play out in Canada's 10 largest cities (those 10 encompassing almost the entirety of the 38 million Canadian population) as play out in Baltimore, Washington, Miami, Los Angeles and New York City. Just move the present northern US border between the USA and Canada a mere 60 miles north of its present location, and the US would have captured almost 98% of Canada's population [emoticon]

Also, 38 million into 340 million goes: 8.9 times. Compare this ratio to the present infection rate of 166 x (times) US to Canada (I think today it is now 168 x the Canadian rate).

I think there is a 95% chance the border restrictions will remain the same as today for the next winter season. Even with the jabs, the restrictions probably will get even tighter.

You got it. Its approved in Canada. However, that being said, the AstraZeneca (AZ) deployment was a real mess. If you had your primer dose of AZ in Canada, your booster became a choice (ie. you could get your booster as AZ, or Moderna, or Pfizer).

Many Canadians that felt they were coerced by the Canadian Feds into "getting the first vaccine that was offered", became extremely angry when the same Canadian Feds came back and said, "....if you had AZ as your primer, you could choose any other vaccine available...." (this could have been because: a) the supply of AZ at that time was extremely unreliable; or, B) "other" (ie. backlash because of potential for death from a known side-effect)

Interestingly, the word out of the US is: that the only vaccinated visitors permitted into the US must have been vaccinated with are "approved vaccines"...and AZ is not one of "those" [emoticon]

There are no requirements of any kind for entering Mexico.

If you are flying to the US from any international destination, you must show proof of a negative test within three days of your arrival in the US.

That being said, we have had several friends fly from here to both Los Angeles and Texas and the airline never asked them for their proof of testing.
