What are the odds Canada will be open to (vaccinated) Americans this summer, whether by air or land? YVR in particular, if western Canada will be different than eastern for any reason. Any rumors or talk or reopening?

I would say there's no chance.  At the moment, Canada refuses even to discuss a plan for the eventual easing of restrictions.  The question is whether anything will change in 2021.

Do you currently need a negative test to enter the USA by land?

The answer is NO, you do not need a test entering the USA from Canada by land.

Furthermore in the case you do have a test from Canada within 72 hours of your return from the USA to canada via land you CANNOT use that test, health canada specifically mandates the test be made IN THE USA

Sorry my mistake, I read that wrong. From Canada to USA a test isn't required.

Canadian citizens want border closed until at least September, and only eventually reopened to those who are vaccinated:

Are they hoping the vaccines are contagious and finally have a way to be vaccinated?

Can a Canadian citizen still enter Canada with their American spouse and young American children?
