But you don't pay for your 14 day stay?  Do we know where they take you from the land border?

The lower prices were the first rooms being reserved. We will have to see if it is on a sliding scale, like normal hotel rooms where the price goes up as occupancy increases. Also, not clear how Kosher food is dealt with...

no hospitals or doctors in the country

Talk about hasty generalizations. Canadian healthcare is top 10 or 20 in the world in any way you measure it.

The application page for hotels said they'd have to accommodate religious restrictions. I assume they either called up a kosher caterer or they'll order kosher airline meals. TARB.

Meals must follow Canada's food guide and take into account any traveller dietary restrictions (for example, allergies, religious and dietary needs).

I demonstrated how you're more than happy to make exaggerated generalizations when they fit your narrative but cry bloody murder when others do the same. Some would call it a mirror.

If a Canadian citizen, person registered under the Indian Act, or permanent resident does not provide proof of a valid molecular test result, they will be directed to a federal designated quarantine facility for their full 14 day quarantine period.
Is that a different facility then the hotels? How much are they going to charge?
