Canada waiting for the sky to fall? lol. We're back to normal here in Arizona - everything is open, no masks required, and it's gonna be 112 degrees today.

Guess you could come up thru Mexico as that border is wide open. Might even get some USA benefits.[emoticon]

If we promise to send a bunch of vaccine to Canada, will you open sooner? [emoticon]

This is torture -- we sit here stuck in the USA, looking longingly over the border at all of that gorgeous real estate just waiting to be explored.

I'm attempting to be funny here, but life is so short. I don't have very many more summers of strenuous RV travel.

Oh, well. I am sure the Prime Minister is being prudent in delaying the reopening.

Our neighbourhood has a bet going on when it will open.
Most are betting on the day after labour day weekend.
My money is on, after Canadian Thanksgiving.
Only 1 guy bet on after August Long weekend.
Time will tell.

Thanks for the link Gary. I hope that they will agree to a vaccination passport.

I’m NOT going to make, nor do I intend to, make this political, rather just factual.

Unfortunately a bunch of folks in this part of the world are now upset that they got the first available vaccine, being AstraZeneca. They are now finding out that this may mean they are (will be may be a better term) at a real disadvantage. It seems that they may not qualify as “fully vaccinated” since they won’t have two shots of US approved vaccines.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing……

^Not to make it political, but leave it up to your government or our current regime to come up with something like that!

put me down for after the september long weekend. that has been the hinted at plan all along and I think they will hold to it, but there is more pressue being put on ottawa by the US to open it every month. personaly I think it would be already open if more people whould have got there shots, on both sides of the boarder.

And it goes on, and ON, and ON.... Alaskan tourism is dying rapidly. Ref the public service announcements on TV by the Alaskan Governor promoting tourism, but it's a little hard to be a tourist up there when you cannot drive through Canada. We have friends who own a business up there and it took them HOURS to get through Canadian Customs. They even had to show their US tax returns to prove they had the Alaskan business. Then the same customs people waived through a line of tourists right behind them. No check, no look, just go. Seems it depends on how the Canadian agent feels at that particular minute if you get in or not.

When the friends got to their destination, the RV park they were staying in looked like a ghost town. Practically no one there when there would have usually had a full park at the same time. Another park in the same town is going into some sort of receivership as the owner was not able to keep up his payments. This will take decades to get back to normal. And they talk, and talk, and talk, and talk, but nothing happens!

to be honest, I dont even know why Alaska is part of the US, why don't you guys just come join us in Canada. seriously though, did they not think about this when they were deciding on the boarders? why wasn't there some sort of land swap, like we will trade you this land for alaska.......
