- Will Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet ministers finally admit that those who called for banning flights from China at the start of the pandemic were right, and they were wrong?
- Will they apologize for falsely labeling them as racists and admit that their claims that travel bans were ineffective at the start of the pandemic were false?
If travel bans are justified now to protect Canadians, then they were justified at the start of the pandemic, and the federal government failed to protect us by not acting until months later, haphazardly, when it was too late.
Foreign nationals who have traveled in South Africa, Eswatini, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, or Namibia within the last 14 days are barred from entering Canada, according to Transport Minister Omar Alghabra and Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos.
Canadians who have visited these countries within the last 14 days will face increased testing, screening, and quarantine measures. When they return to Canada, regardless of vaccination status or having contracted and recovered from COVID.
Before proceeding to Canada, they must obtain a valid negative COVID-19 test in a third country within 72 hours of departure.
Upon arrival, they will be subjected to immediate testing, a second mandatory test on day eight following their appearance, and a 14-day quarantine period. They will be required to stay in a selected quarantine facility to await initial test results. They will not be allowed to leave until their quarantine plan has been approved and a negative test result has been received.
Compare those measures to what was requested in a January 2020 petition signed by 10,000 people, many of them of Chinese origin, by parents living in the York region near Toronto at the start of the pandemic, which was widely condemned at the time by federal, provincial, and municipal politicians, public health officials, academics, and pundits.
“To assume the spread of the new coronavirus in school, the school and classroom teachers should advise students to follow safety guidelines strictly.” The school should also advise its employees to do so.”
