I really do not understand why people act this way. The selfishness just drives me 'round the bend.

Just another example of I have money so the rules don’t apply. My brother and his wife live in Texas and went to Vancouver to visit her sick Mom and were quarantined for 14 days up there. Health dept checked on them every day. They then flew back home where there was no quarantine.

Well, rules allowing one to fly into the US but not drive into the US are a big part of the problem - unless you've absolutely convinced that the COVID virus only hitches rides on land based vehicles, not planes.

I used to have this "discussion" with Security over their rules when I worked in Defense. Kept trying to get them to see that their massive set of rules defining what I could and couldn't do were like a picket fence and all they did was let me know what things they'd be looking for to determine if I'd violated Security. There was almost always a way to accomplish something that didn't violate their rules but was in fact a violation of the intent of their rules that they'd never discover.

They are following the rules -- the USA (for whatever reason) allows Canadians to come in by air, but not by vehicle. And they allow goods to be shipped over the border by truck. And this isn't a new service -- they've already been doing it for people that don't want to drive their RV long-distance.

It's not like they are hiding in the back of the RV and sneaking across the border, they are doing exactly what the USA said they can do.

But with the way this pandemic is still out of control in the USA, I'd sure think twice about leaving my home in Canada to travel to the USA.

Staying home isn’t a big sacrifice for Americans or Canadians. Just cooperate so this virus will go away ASAP.

I'm not sure why anyone would WANT to come here! Cases are skyrocketing and I would not want to be so far from home if I were to get sick. It does seem strange that you can't drive here but you can fly here. Wouldn't surprise me if that changes.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

They are not breaking any rules.

And it works both ways. Americans can fly into Canada (and they did a lot of that through the summer, many US visitors on Vancouver Island), but they can't drive across the border, unless they are driving to Alaska. However, tell me how someone who is driving to Alaska spends a few days on the Island?

So, "the rules don't apply" is not just restricted to us Canucks. And what "drives me around the bend" is someone not getting all the facts before making comment.

Covid is spiking in Saskatchewan now. I'd not dream of going to USA where it is far worse.
