U-S border opens to fully vaccinated Canadians

BY The Canadian Press, Nov 8, 2021 5:42 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A car heads into the U.S. from Canada at the Peace Arch border crossing in Blaine, Wash., June 8, 2021. For the first time in nearly 20 months, non-essential traffic is once again moving in both directions across the Canada-U.S. land border. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP-Elaine Thompson

Even though the U-S border opened to fully vaccinated Canadian vacationers, visitors and day-trippers overnight, few major line-ups were reported this morning.

That's partly because Canada is still requiring anyone coming back into the country to get a pricey COVID-19 test.

Canadian Chamber of Commerce C-E-O Perrin Beatty says the expense is discouraging people from travelling and he doesn't think the tests do much to improve public safety.

New York Congressman Brian Higgins and border city mayors and community leaders have scheduled a news conference this morning to urge Ottawa to abandon the rule.
