“Rep. Brian Higgins (D-New York) is hopeful that the Canadian government will, over the next few weeks, move toward lifting its stringent travel requirements for U.S. citizens crossing the border into Canada and, possibly, make masks and the glitchy ArriveCan mobile app for air travelers voluntary,” the Buffalo News is reporting.
“The Democratic congressman said Monday that a bilateral meeting of U.S. lawmakers and members of the Canadian parliament on Sept. 14 revealed a consensus in support of urging the administration of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to end rigorous and sometimes contradictory preclearance requirements on Americans crossing the northern border.
“’As of June, if you came into Canada on a plane or train, you weren’t required to be vaccinated. … If you’re in a car, you are,’ said Higgins Monday in a brief telephone interview with The Buffalo News. ‘Why does the mode of transportation determine who should and shouldn’t be vaccinated?’”
