A day after rejecting the vote to end travel restrictions in Canada, the Trudeau government just extended the current requirements until at least June 30.
According to a Health Canada Tweet, “The Government of Canada is extending current border measures for travellers entering Canada until at least June 30, 2022.”
“All travellers, regardless of vaccination status, must continue to submit their information in ArriveCan through the free app or website.”
On top of the continued use of the invasive ArriveCan App, this decision means that vaccine passports will stay for at least another 30 days, effectively banning unvaccinated Canadians from travelling domestically or from leaving their own country.
Moreover, random COVID testing will continue.
These extended measures will likely prolong the much-discussed delays at the airport – for those who are allowed to fly.
As reported by The Counter Signal, Liberals, NDP, and Bloq Quebecqois members of Parliament just rejected lifting the travel restrictions that the conservative members put to a vote.
“Today, the NDP-Liberal government voted against our common-sense motion that would have returned to pre-pandemic rules and service levels for travel and helped end the delays we’re seeing at airports across the country,” the Conservative website reads.
“As Canadian travellers are being subject to extreme delays, line-ups, bottlenecks, and missed connections because of unnecessary protocols, our allies across the world, including the European Union and the United States, have loosened rules for passengers on flights and in airports.”
“. . . Airports have directly cited the Liberals’ policies as the reason for these delays . . .”
Additionally, just days ago, Pearson airport in Toronto held training exercises for employees to encounter fake freedom protestors – odd timing, if coincidental.
And these delays will continue for at least another month.
