I don't get it... on several levels. I thought we were not encouraged to travel to the USA which is struggling with a pandemic? I understood borders were still closed.
Why would anyyone right now, want to vacation in the USA - have there been more turbulent times? Will they be insured if they catch COVID?
Will we fly them home AGAIN if shit hits the fan at our expense... again?
What if they get sick and bring it back...
I cannot be the only Canadian thinking like this.
I also don't get it as most of these snowbirds are older, vunerable to catching covid.
I read one snowbird was missing "the beach, sun and cheap rum", that said enough.
Sunshine & Alcohol are worth it all? To alcoholics, I guess.
I understand wanting to travel - especially if you own a condo down south and it's just sitting there - go... BUT this time I don't think the goverment should be responsible in anyway for your safe return. It's NOT like the world is not aware of what's going on. IF YOU choose to go down south GO - but don't make other Canadians who choose to try to do what we are told to do, in order to slow a fucking pandemic killing thousands of Canadians & others around the world, pay for your selfishness.
For the sake of a tan & cheap rum is shallow & selfish.
Clearly some don't think the rules apply to them.. and our government can't seem to get it's shit together so no wonder these loons thinks its safe to fly.
Adios snowbirds, Go! May you safely return in your cars and not coffins.
