Good to see.

Funny thing is, it hasn't opened up any camping spots. Be a different crowd, I guess, but just as full.

gmckenzie...as I am sure you know, but for others...the lock-down that is now lifting in stages has spawned a tidal wave of RV purchases and a drive into the hinterlands. RV sales have skyrocketed...anything that 'appears' to be usable as a camping method...tents, tarps, old vans...new anything...huge debt being incurred.

Any scrap of ground they can camp on is taken between Vancouver and probably Prince George. If a person has field with a pond? man...they could almost retire.

I hope the border stays closed as long as it takes to minimize spread. I dont know how long that should be, thats why i trust the professionals. Canada currently has good control of this virus.
Its important to remember that corona is the enemy. We are all in this together.


Yes, I would say Canada has good control of this virus. Canada has a total of 105,000 confirmed cases since this pandemic started. The US had 105,000 new cases confirmed in just one day, today.
So Canada, please keep the border closed.

Looking at some other sites I have a feeling that was a misprint yesterday. Other sites say 53K, but that is still 1/2 the amount in just one day of all the confirmed cases in Canada.
I sure do hope the US gets things under control soon. That is just terrible what is happening to our neighbors down south.

Yes, that looks like what happened yesterday. The numbers were double what they were previous days.
