New Travel Restriction
Posted date : May 18, 2021.
I’m presently in Florida since November 2020, have received the COVID-19 vaccine, will have a COVID-19 test 72 hours before returning to Canada and have just learned that when we enter Canada, we will be sent to a designated hotel for three days at our own expense until we receive another positive COVID-19 test. I feel that they are sending us to prison at our cost without a fair trial. We know that 98% of the COVID cases in Ontario are not related to travel and others are not sent to a designated area for quarantine. This government action against snowbirds is unjustifiable. What will our association do to protect us against this assault from our government against snowbirds?
Ed.: As you can see, it is not just the Federal government, it is also the provinces that are involved with this travesty. All we can do is fight, and we are doing that to the best of our ability. It is far safer to quarantine at home than in a hotel; even political hacks should be able to see that. Perhaps there is something else going on, but I would hate to think that this is all about corruption. When my family returns, we will go directly home even though my 96-year-old mother-in-law might find a hotel stay exciting. I will take the tickets and fines and contest it in small claims court, if necessary. Hopefully, the governments will come to their senses before that.
