    Why are they concerned? Hasn’t Covid restrictions by the same premieres basically halted travel? Unfortunately I think there’s only one politician in the world understands the economy needs to be open. Stop complaining in one article then promote covid restrictions in another!! Secondly we need to stop supporting areas where people don’t invest themselves.

    Stop the lockdowns or there won't be any economy left in this country. Most businesses will never come back! Lack of any desire to invest or attempt to borrow for new businesses.
    The politicians and health officials still receiving paychecks, benefits and pensions. Remember that point!!!

    Violating Section 6 (Mobility Rights) of the Charter of Rights has economic consequences. Lock your borders down & prevent Canadians from travelling within their own nation…and this is what you get.

    Not surprised considering the shut down and blocking travel from other parts of Canada.

    More than a month ago Sharon Kirkey already wrote: "The 'Atlantic bubble' has held off COVID-19, but is it worth the cost to civil liberties?" “The Come From Away province told Canadians who’d come from away to bloody well stay away,” Michael Bryant, executive director and general counsel for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) wrote. “Contrary to our constitutionally protected mobility rights, and contrary to Canada’s raison d’être, we unstitched our confederation, in a panic.” It was kind of scary to see how quickly on the Power Panel discussion seemed to switch from relaxing the Atlantic bubble to writing big cheques to the businesses hurt by it. Have none of them read the Great Barrington Declaration?
