And while President Donald Trump suggested the border could open up sooner, it turns out many Canadians hope it won’t.

A new study by the non-profit Angus Reid Institute found that 60% of Canadians would “definitely not” take even a day trip to the U.S. While 24% of Canadians said they would “probably not” take the trip.

The study shows that 42% of Canadians would rather see the Canada-U.S. border open up in September. While 26% prefer to wait until the end of 2020.

In B.C. 43% of residents say the border should stay closed until the end of the year.
