Coronavirus: Canada easing border restrictions to allow for family reunification

Canada is easing some of its cross-border travel restrictions with the U.S. to allow for family reunification.

Over the course of the pandemic, several families have been unable to see one another due to being on either side of the border as travel across is restricted to essential services only.

Abigail Bimman takes a look at the change in rules and who they will benefit.

    So people within canada cant go to their moms funeral in another province because of restrictions but its totally ok to let people in from the states which has the highest covid numbers in the world?! The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few and we all need to keep covid from spreading further into Canada and we shouldnt have to all take the risks of allowing more border crossing just so a few people touch each other again. Absolutely absurd.

    It should be like Australia – you must self isolate at a government location and pay your own costs

    At least one should have some border restrictions with the Canada and U.S. border because people want to go see their family and stay together. This is defined as essential travel to me visiting your relatives.

    Now people will abuse this right…lie and make up a story to cross . While it puts everyone at risk. Sorry but this message tells me that this pandemic is a bad case of the flu. Medical advisers know what's going on behind the scenes with respect to this virus. No way if it was serious you would have anyone crossing the boarder. It's tough to go through things in your own in life but not at the risk of society at large.

    Good 'ole Canada. Wait for the Covid-1984 numbers to spike, then throw open the floodgates. Only under Blunder Boy's watch, mind…I hear they're building a Five – 💣 Hotel on Roxham Rd with a 300 year amortization period @ 99%. Godless Trudeau…Where would we be without him?

    What is happening? Provincial Premieres are saying that the number of cases are growing, but the Federal Government is “easing up” on the border restrictions? Are they all high in Ottawa?

    Ahh Americans have been crossing the boarder for a long time unchecked and without isloition period, an without a follow up.

    Uhhhhh, no no no, this is a very VERY bad idea. As much as I would love to see families reunited, we cannot be hasty and ease up on border restrictions

    I hope that there are actual rules regarding these "long term relationship" travelers. The rules will be completely unenforceable, though, so I'd rather keep travel restrictions instead.

    This government is done. Im done wearing a mask, im done listening to them. Every chance they get they break their own covid rules. And now right in the midst of a second wave they are letting these selfish yanks into our country to spread covid more. Fing smart.

    Everybody keeps saying we (Canada) are in our Second Wave or Wave 2. But we never got to 0. You need to get to 0 cases before you can actually end a wave.

    This pandemic isn’t going away until people stop trying to cheat the system.

    Sorry, you can’t cheat a virus like you can with your taxes.

    To know her pain was all for nothing, the Trudeau government botched this all, also now allowing these people to come in all to bring in Chinese foreign students. When will everyone wake up?

    Can we vote Peter Griffin from family guy in as our Prime Minister, we seem to be bending towards that direction.
