The authorities of several Canadian regions insist on the early opening of the border between Canada and the United States, which is closed due to the spread of the coronavirus. This was reported by the Global News channel.
According to him, this position is held, in particular, by the heads of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to hold a meeting with regional leaders on Thursday. The leaders of these provinces intend to demand that he prepare a plan for the early opening of the border with his southern neighbor. According to the TV channel, the head of Alberta, Jason Kenny, in particular, expects to open the border with the United States in early July.
Trudeau said last week that Ottawa was looking into easing restrictive measures at the U.S. border for travelers fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, but did not give any specifics.
The Canada-US border was closed on March 21, 2020, at midnight Ottawa time, a ban was imposed on all non-mandatory movements of citizens of the two countries, and tourist trips were prohibited. As the Prime Minister of Canada said at the time, these restrictions will last until the parties are confident in the safety of the usual regime of movement of citizens across the border. The current agreement between Canada and the United States runs until June 21.
