Those of us in the heartland have positive thoughts of our sister country to the north. We love their sports including hockey, curling and hockey night beer drinking. We like how far the US dollar goes for things like ski vacations in Whistler and coffee at Tim Hortons. Their national anthem is catchy when it is sung at baseball and NHL games. Many of us wished that Canada would become our 51st state at some time if they could figure out what to do with Quebec and their school teacher/yoga guru turned prime minister.
But we are glad that they are not part of the US given how far left they are leaning. Canada makes California and New York look like bastions of freedom in comparison. The way they have approached the COVID pandemic shows just how authoritarian the country is becoming. Let’s see how Canada is attacking the pandemic:
As of February 21, 2021, Canadian citizen travelers will be required to:
Reserve a government-authorized hotel for 3 nights prior to departure to Canada.
Take a COVID-19 molecular test on arrival in Canada.
Stay in the government-authorized facility while awaiting the results of the COVID-19 molecular test taken on arrival.
Pay for the cost of the facility stay, as well as all associated costs for: food, security, transportation and infection prevention and control measures.
Canadian Peel Health has provided guidelines to parents instructing them to keep any children sent home due to a classmate testing positive for COVID-19 be isolated in a separate room from all other family members for 14 days. They must wear a mask and cannot get closer than 2 meters to any other family member.
Christian ministers are being arrested and jailed if they hold church services that include more members than the government allows.
So, let’s get this straight. Canadian citizens returning home cannot go home, but must go into a state approved facility and pay for all of it. They also propose children (as young as 4) that may have been COVID exposed, but are not sick, be put into isolation for 14 days.
We have known for a while that Canada was becoming more and more progressive. They have used the pandemic to fully support “The Great Reset”: a number of recommendations that include moving towards socialism, global economic rebalancing (rich countries pay for poor countries) and aggressive climate change restrictions.
We have always thought of Canadians as brave and resourceful people. But lately their government is acting more like Ted Kennedy after a night of drinking and driving. May we suggest that our Canadian brothers and sisters re-read their national anthem where it says “We stand on guard for thee, God keep our land glorious and free.”
