Yup. Used one for a family member 2 weeks ago.
Hertz and national free day vouchers would all do the same job?

I've never used Hertz for one-way. I've done National a couple of times and never had any trouble.

As long as it's bookable. At one appointed time the system wasn't excepting reservations from Canada to USA.

Yup. AFAIK only Canada to USA wasn't showing up for bookings. Never heard of issues going the other way, and like I said I booked one 2 weeks ago.

Comes from air travel:

Quote
All air travellers 5 years of age or older, regardless of citizenship, must provide proof of a negative laboratory test result for COVID-19 to the airline before boarding international flights to Canada. You donít require a test to fly within Canada.

Who said it will be the same?
Was slightly implied from trudeau's statement when he ended off by saying "just like air travel"

Nothing official yet - but tenders for hotels to participate in the program end tomorrow and with the land border rules coming effect Feb 15 and Air Canada announcing today a whole slew of cross border route cuts starting Feb 16 and 17, around  that day is my best guess.

Also in that CBC article, a number of changes at land borders. Interesting that they'll also accept a positive test from 14-90 days prior to arrival. Not sure why they there's any difference between land and air with regard to people who had COVID-19 already, or where the 90 days comes from...

Earlier this week, the prime minister announced that as of Feb. 15, non-essential travellers entering Canada through the land border will soon need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving. Essential workers, such as truckers, emergency service providers, and those in cross-border communities, will be exempt from this requirement.

On Friday, officials clarified that land travellers can also provide proof of a positive test taken 14 to 90 days prior to arrival.

Starting Feb. 22, travellers entering Canada at the land border will also be equired to take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival as well as toward the end of their 14-day quarantine.

Trudeau has said officers can't legally deny entry to Canadians, but those who show up without proof of a test could face fines of up to $3,000.

So that means land border entrants take a total of 3 tests ?
1. 72 hours before arrival
2. Upon arrival
3. after 14 days

??

And also any clarity on age?
