Altitude Wi-Fi Plan.
Earlier this year, you chose the 12‑month Altitude Wi‑Fi Plan as one of your Select Privileges. This enables you to get internet access on Gogo®-equipped Air Canada flights.

You’ll also be able to choose complimentary Gogo Wi‑Fi as one of your 2021 Select Benefits early next year.

I was glad to find out about this.

FWIW, as of yesterday the greater Montreal area is rated as Red and here is a list of the new restrictions:

The restrictions are:

A ban on home gatherings, with some exceptions, such as a single caregiver allowed per visit.
- All bars, casinos and restaurants are closed (takeout only).
- Libraries, museums, cinemas and theatres will also be closed.
- Being less than two metres apart will be prohibited. Masks will be mandatory during demonstrations.
- Houses of worship and venues for events, such as funerals and weddings, will have a 25-person limit.

Hair salons, hotels and other such businesses will stay open.

Schools will remain open.
"Schools must remain open," Legault said. "Businesses are open so parents can continue to work and earn money."

Do you have to stay for 2 weeks or can you just say your going for a few days and quarantine while your there?
Officially you're supposed to quarantine for 14 days, but they really can't hold you back from leaving, but they might make you problems entering Canada next time if you disobey the quarantine rules.

An improved approach to miles expiration

More time to keep your account active

Effective July 20, 2020 we are waiving the current expiry provisions. You will now have 18 months to keep your account active – six months longer than before.

All you have to do to stay active is earn or redeem a single mile. While travel is core to Aeroplan, don't forget that there are many ways to keep your account active, such as:

Shopping online with one of our retail partners
Redeeming for gift cards and merchandise
Donating miles to a participating charity
Buying miles to get to your next reward

Learn more about our 18-month inactivity policy and all the ways to keep your account active.

More flexible options to reinstate your Aeroplan Miles

If your miles do expire, don't worry. Within six months of your account becoming inactive, if you fly on an eligible Air Canada ticket or get any Aeroplan credit card, we'll reactivate all of your recently expired miles.

We also understand that you may have been forced to adjust your travel plans due to COVID-19, so we're taking additional action. If you purchased a trip with Air Canada prior to July 20, 2020, with travel commencing anytime since January 2020 and had to cancel your travel plans, we'll be happy to reinstate all of your Aeroplan Miles which have expired since the beginning of this year. You'll just need to have your Air Canada booking reference on hand.

It's crazy. Why would Canada care if you quarantine for all the time you are there, but leave before 15 days? My parents have been locked up for 3 months already and I (had the virus long ago) want to visit.
You can leave Canada before the 14 days is over.

But also tachlis, can a canadian fly into the US for no reason at all if you preclear customs in Canada? (Like the article quoted in the DDMS post.)
Yes, I heared first hand from someone that went, the restricion going into the US is only by car not by air.

A very positive article in the local Monrčal Gazette on how the porch prayers of the Hasidic Jews have been received and how they've reached out to their non-Jewish neighbors to show appreciation for their inconvenience and understanding.

And in the French La Presse (open it with google to get it translated).
