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.
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.
"Conversations are constant and ongoing," says PM Trudeau when asked about discussions with United States re: timing of reopening of the border. "As I've said, we do not feel that reopening the border any time soon is likely," the prime minister tells reporters. #cdnpoli #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/7LWz2SlseJ— CPAC (@CPAC_TV) April 17, 2020
"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."
