Yup. Air is not a problem, land is.

Are there any issues transiting thru Canada by air?
From the website here  https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/border#transit-air it seems not but I am asking if anyone has actual experience/info

By Air yes. Land depends in the port entry.

At the end of the day it is up to the individual agent.

I remember crossing there at night before 9/11, was a joke, we honked to wake up the single guard who was suspicious because we bothered to wake him.

Are U.S. citizens able to enter the U.S through the land borders in Niagara?

Yes. Peace Bridge and either Rainbow or Queenston are open (don't remember which). US citizens shouldn't have a problem entering the US.

The way the law is written it is on the individual port of entry to decide if the travel is deemed essential, the N.Y. Borders decided spouses aren't while the VT borders decided they are.

Plenty of "spouses" have been able to get through the NY borders; it depends on the agent.

I'm not sure if your quotations are referring to people ho aren't actually married, but I did get through with my wife who's a US citizen (I'm not). It was up to the supervisor on duty so my wife had to go inside and speak to him but he said yes right away (I don't even think he asked for our marriage certificate, which we brought).

A lot of success by the Buffalo/Niagara Falls border points to U.S.
