This is the kind of solidarity I can get behind.
CBC: Canadian support for keeping the border closed to Americans remains strong, despite a decline in new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and a decimated tourism industry.
1,000 Canadians surveyed online at the end of August, a whopping 90 per cent agreed with the current Canada-U.S. border closure to non-essential traffic.
The show of support comes at a time when several Canadian border cities are licking their wounds over a loss of U.S. tourism. Nevertheless, they’re maintaining their support for the border closure, to help stop the spread of COVID-19 from the country with the world’s highest number of cases and deaths.
The United States is closing in on 200k dead and their President knowingly surpressed and played down the deadly effects of the pandemic.
Trump supporters are out here gobbing on people attacking maskers so why would we open the border to anyone from America? Why?
Other than some essential service and business travel, we can trust anyone from America with the safety of Canadians. They’re too selfish and too stipud to be allowed to mingle with Canadians. We have days and weeks where with no COVID related fatalities while two people die every minute in the US with over 7 million infected to date. The Trump admin doesn’t acknowledge the pandemic anymore and the US is responsible for 1/3 of the worlds cases and a quarter of all deaths.
That’s not a country who’s citizens can be trusted to walk our streets and I’m very good with it.
I love you America, I just don’t trust you and neither does 90% of Canada. Clean your shit up and we’ll talk in 2022.
