Traveling from Canada to the US and back to Canada? Entry to Canada might be tricky, need to check the current rules.

It's quite simple, they want to know if your bringing in the virus from USA..

I don't believe that's correct.

Can someone possibly explain me a logical reason why Montreal has opened the movie theaters for an occupancy of up to 250 people?!

Do 90% of citizens agree to that as well??

Sounds regarded considering the rest of their restrictions, and slow vaccination pace...

LOL! Good luck...
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

It's very logical based on the false assumption that covid isn't airborne, and there isn't likely to be mass droplet transmission in a theater where people are stationary and quiet more than 2m from each other.

Canada is STILL making that false assumption?

So why not allow a silent synagogue without the 1 person limit? Does theater come before religion??

IINM Quebec specifically has been known to be very resistant to acknowledging airborne spread.

That being said, we don't know how common airborne spread is, so they may not be that wrong, especially if they mandated good ventilation.

Because distance won't be observed

Not anymore then a theater for collage students.
They can definitely enforce it like they've been doing all too well.
