The border between Canada and the US will be closed for at least another month

The United States and Canada have reached an agreement to extend travel restrictions for another 30 days.

After some initial back and forth tussling with U.S. President Donald Trump, the two countries have agreed to restrict all non-essential travel for another month.

The restrictions were initially set to expire on April 21 and after Trump began to lay out a plan to reopen the border, Canadian officials quickly dismissed the idea.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reiterated that message today during a press conference, saying that it could be "many weeks" before restrictions are lifted for anything other than essential travel.

"As I've said, we do not feel that reopening the border any time soon is likely," he said.

His decision to keep the border closed was supported by Ontario Premier Doug Ford when he told reporters yesterday "I don't want them in Ontario."
