In fact, because of dread of infections, numerous Canadians are against the opening of the boarders in the near future.
Presently, the Canada-U.S. land boarder that was once all the way opened, is shut to superfluous travel, impacting the lives of numerous individuals on both sides.
On March 21st, 2020, the Canadian government announced the closure of the boarders and would stay shut until at any rate August 21.
