I’m with the vast majority of Canadians who want to keep the border closed as of October 2020.
The USA has had about 663 deaths / million so far. And is getting worse.
Canada about 263 deaths / million. And getting worse at this moment in time. Not good, but a LOT better than the States.
I don’t want to get the virus. I want to be one of the 20-40% who never get it once herd immunity is reached.
Though Trump totally bungled the U.S. response, almost 43% of Americans still support him.
They are the same ones who told me COVID-19 is less deadly than the common flu. They believed FOX and Trump.
They are the same ones who told me hydroxychloroquine was a ‘cure’. Not even Trump took it when he got sick.
I don’t want that 43% of Americans anywhere near me or my family.
I’m willing to suffer the economic and personal consequences.
Some families are now separated by the border. Canadians can still fly to the States, so it’s possible for them to get together — but that doesn’t work for those who can’t fly.
