It looks like our American neighbours may be missing us.

Apparently a letter has been sent to President Joe Biden, signed by several members of the US congress, urging him to consider fully reopening the Canada – USA border by July 2021.

The letter asks for both the president and the prime minister to work together to do a partial re-opening of the Canada USA border by May 31, and a full one by July 4.


The request is coming after President Joe Biden told the American public that he hopes to have everyone vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus by May. On the contrary, Prime Minister Trudeau is promising that most Canadians will be vaccinated by September 2021.

This contrast itself will likely weigh into the decision of whether or not the Canada USA border can reopen and by when.

Some people are already weighing in.

The border between the two countries has been closed to non-essential travel for almost a year. The current restrictions set to expire on March 21, 2021. Once again, the tightening will be extended on March 21 for another month
