You are hilarious. You do not even need to use a /sarc tag.

Re: An American in Canadian waters

When you cross the border hereabouts not only are you coming into Canada, you are coming into British Columbia. While defending the border is a federal responsibility, public health is a provincial (state) responsibility. Unlike a couple of BIG provinces and some other countries the political leadership of BC has stood back and let the medical profession handle the crisis, make the rules, and be the public face of the battle in the media. Led by Dr. "Auntie" Bonnie Henry, they have done an OUTSTANDING job. Dr. Henry's daily updates have been must-watch TV. She actually genuinely tears up when announcing deaths.

BC residents HAVE been following the rules: isolating when required, generally staying home, working from home, closing their buisnesses, washing their hands, and wearing masks. As a result our infection and death rate (per million population) is FAR lower than neighbouring Washington State (for example). In fact, our infection rate is low enough we can do thorough contact tracing and testing for EVERY CASE - and thus we appear to have, after some early rough days when the disease swept through a number of elder care homes, killing our parents and grandparents right, left and centre, things pretty much under control.

Not only are we not letting US residents in (I refuse to call you Americans asALL residents of North, Central, and South America are "Americans "), we're not even letting other CANADIANS into BC. Quite a few Albertans, found enjoying themselves in BC parks have been asked and forced to leave - and Alberta has a BETTER record fighting Covid-19 than even BC!

I don't know what reason your friend gave that persuaded the Canada Border Services to let them in - but there have been abuses and I find that unforgivable. It's MY life you are putting at risk!

So please STAY THE F**K HOME!

It was not a condition for admittance to a sovereign country.
It seems to me that it was a "heads up" that could be accepted or rejected as the captain of the boat wished.

"Recommend" according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary,"to suggest an act or course of action"
"Suggest" according to the same dictionary "to mention or imply as a possibility, to propose as desirable or fitting, to offer for consideration or as a hypothesis"

All this outrage over a suggestion, a mention, a proposal or an offer for consideration.
Who said it was ordered?

I don’t think anyone presumed or hinted to that.

Yes.

I posted CDC, you posed voanews

The only confirmed way to transmit it at this point is respiratory droplets, sorry.

I just have to add my nickels worth in here... This USCG Admiral is squeezing by insisting to come to Canada and using Alaska as an excuse. He is simply getting away from the pandemic in the states and hiding in Canada. Smart man...pushing the limits...

Fauci wears a mask for the press conferences, but removes it before and after....what does he know? This hysteria does not bode well for people of all nations; travel during emergencies, real or perceived, is potentially hazardous due to the human factor. Frightened people can be unpredictable.

We love cruising the US and the stupidity of having to call CBP in every time we move the boat is galling. but it's your country so we play by your rules.

We're quite happy if you don't come to our country if you can't play by our rules

And youre free to say its stupid, many American would agree with you, you can also fly the Canadian flag and this American, as well as everyone he know really wont care one way or another.

Re: An American in Canadian waters

Kinda simple:


America --- SICK


Canada --- NOT sick


I live on Vancouver Island and there's no way to get to Alaska by road on our island, unless they ferry from Twassen to Victoria, drive to Nanaimo and ferry back to North Van.


Get well, stay safe, use a mask and wash your hands, social distance.



Not too hard.


Bonnie Henry's right.


KISS.
