U.S. politicians fume over Canada's extended border restrictions | CBC News

American politicians who are normally friendly to Canada are fuming over news that the border will remain closed to non-essential travel for at least another month.

1 source of cross-border travellers to Canada, and 62 per cent of New York state's adults have been fully vaccinated; COVID-19 cases and deaths there have plunged.

parties are pressing President Joe Biden to just move ahead unilaterally — and fling open America's border to Canadian travel.

Elise Stefanik, demanded a unilateral reopening in a recent letter to the administration — urging Biden to get tougher with his Canadian counterpart.

In Ottawa, one official said Friday that there hasn't actually been much pressure from Biden's administration to reopen immediately. .

The White House declined to comment on the Canadian announcement and said it has working groups discussing the border reopening with Canada and other countries.

Higgins calls it immoral that NHL players got a travel exemption for the playoffs while fully vaccinated people can't cross to see their loved ones or their property.

He's especially annoyed at the lack of clarity about the reopening plan and questions such as how vaccinations will be recognized. Higgins said these details should have been dealt with months ago.

Canada has said it wants 75 per cent of its population to have one dose of vaccine and for 20 per cent to be fully vaccinated before reopening travel. .

The closure of our border for non-essential travel has strained this critical economic partnership.

Post-9/11 safety measures slowed travel and trade and Canadians were constantly pushing back against false reports of terrorists entering from Canada.

Doer believes we'll see an announcement soon about when, and how, the reopening will work.

"We love Canada; we love Canadians." 

"You have to go out of your way to tick off Brian Higgins," said Maryscott Greenwood of the Canadian American Business Council

border will reopen to Canadian travel soon, either on June 22, or at the latest on July 22 — no matter what Canada does

isn't going to wait forever," Greenwood said
