No urgent reasons given. A prudent step to take is the reason.

A few days ago a 15 passenger van with both US and canadian citizens travelling to a bar mitzvah were told only the canadians can pass (they turn around and went to an off route border where they all passed...)

Now that the border is closed for ALL non essential travel, should I assume my flights from US to Canada for Pesach will be canceled and refunded?  Flying to Canada using AA miles and returning with paid AC flight
Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

Quoting from someone in Montreal who spoke to border control and said that even US citizens in Canada are not allowed to come into America and are stuck there. As for Canadian citizens, they are being allowed into Canada for now. A minor who is a US citizen can go into Canada with a parent who is a Canadian citizen. However, a spouse who is not a Canadian citizen is not able to come into Canada even with proof of marriage.

Sounds very strange that a country wouldn't allow a person to go back to his home country. Especially that they announced it to be effective the same day without prior notice. DROBC and use common sense.

Can't be true.

All Canadians stay home!

Trudeau announced that Canadians without “adequate locations for quarantine” will be forced to quarantine in an hotel. Basically, don’t leave, as upon renetry it will be up to the border agent to decide if you can go home. Also if you don’t live in Canada,  don’t assume your Canadian passport will help you, as you might end up in an hotel. (Although I’m wondering if that’s a good way to achieve elite status...)

Though I agree with most of what Canada has implemented, Trudeau is a joke, posting selfies from his country home over the weekend while the country is told to shelter at home.

Correct, and the conservative leader isn’t much better. Canada is starting to feel somewhere between a police state and a joke.

Agreed. The only one who seems to be stepping up his game is Doug Ford. Real class act if you ask me.
