‘We’re polite but not crazy!’ Canadians demand border remain shut to disease-ridden Americans

Published

Canada has absolutely crushed the curve on novel coronavirus infections — and Canadians are telling their government to keep the nation’s borders closed to disease-ridden Americans.

Buffalo News reports that a recent poll shows that 81 percent of Canadians want to keep the border between the two countries closed, and that Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY) garnered furious pushback from Canadian Twitter users earlier this month when he expressed his support to reopening travel between the U.S. and Canada.

“Stay where you are,” one Twitter user wrote back. “Get COVID under control, release children separated from their parents and detained in inhumane conditions. Remove Trump.”

“Canadians may be polite but we aren’t CRAZY!” replied another.

In an interview with Buffalo News, Higgins maintained that he wanted the border to reopen, but acknowledged that many Canadians had legitimate concerns about doing so.

“They view Americans as super-spreaders and a direct threat to the health and safety of their citizens in the province of Ontario, in the country of Canada,” he said.

After hitting a peak of averaging 1,800 daily COVID-19 cases on May 2nd, Canada has since seen its average daily number of new infections drop to an average of 331.

Over that same time period, America has gone from averaging 27,000 infections a day to now averaging more than 61,000 infections a day.

Shocking video was posted to Twitter on Friday by a storm chaser in Canada.

"A tornado has touched down in southwestern Manitoba near Virden," the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reports. "The funnel cloud was documented and posted to social media by several people in the area, including storm chaser Aaron Jayjack, who shot video of himself standing in front of the twister as it touched down."

Authorities warned golf ball-sized hail was likely.

"This is a dangerous and potentially life-threatening situation," the government warned. "Take cover immediately, if threatening weather approaches. If you hear a roaring sound or see a funnel cloud, swirling debris near the ground, flying debris, or any threatening weather approaching, take shelter immediately."

Of course, Trump does not need an executive order to accomplish such a goal, as it is already federal law in the Affordable Care Act, that was passed a decade ago by congressional Democrats and then-President Barack Obama.

Trump campaign advisors soon took to Twitter to praise Trump's promise as "huge news."

"Huge news just now - [Trump] announces upcoming EO to cover pre-existing conditions. Big, big, big news," campaign senior advisor Jason Miller tweeted.
