City Council to debate whether our border crossing should re-open

City Council to debate whether our border crossing should re-open

It's already a nightmare here trying to go about your business without being approached from in front, side and every which way by Canadians who choose to not social distance. The rights of those who wish to follow the rules and social distance are being violated. Opening the border is a Federal matter, not Municipal. But even thinking of it is absurd given the even worse attitude being demonstrated in the US. The border does not end in the UP. Southern Michigan and beyond is a hotbed for this virus. We have enough of our own naysayers and non conformers here. Unless the numbers go down in the states, we don't need to ask for trouble and open back and forth traffic.

Elliot Park for one, as well as Garson Hill has always been used as an off leash dog park with many not all pet owners driving or walking there, letting the dogs loose and not picking up after their pets. At least now it will legal.

That "honk parade" went on for "almost" half an hour of one day! Wow!! You would figure that a minor inconvenience to others such as this would be something to be applauded and admired. These seniors must have done something right by raising good people who care enough to take the time to let them know they are not alone, despite the current circumstances. If only all would be so lucky!

I'm not understanding the part about "If one is feeling well it's ok to go about doing your daily business". Really?? So those people who have shut down their business which for them IS part of their daily routine, loosing income as a consequence, are wrong? They should carry on as usual?? Hairdressers, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, gyms etc. have all done the right thing. Most I'm sure are not sick. Potential customers are not all sick. Yet they are shut down. Stop confusing the public. STAY HOME unless you need groceries, meds or whatever and even then practise social distancing. Less people around, less chance of transmission.

They do have to come home, but if they have any symptoms, even preliminary ones, they should at least use a mask or get medical advice before getting on a plane. Those that left for trips AFTER being advised not to travel, for the sake of being politically correct, no comment!!

Airlines such as Air Canada are required to screen their passengers before boarding their aircraft. And.....if border patrol is actually doing their part, they should also be screened upon arrival. The fact remains that it will be those local returning residents that had the option to cancel their personal/business travel plans (not those who had already travelled south, or any that are coming back from European countries including Italy) who pose the greatest risk of significantly increasing our numbers here in Sault Ste. Marie.

Boognish, I am glad you think it's just the flu in Italy. It's not!! This is such an uninformed statement. People of all ages are succumbing to this virus world wide. I refuse to panic or listen to hyped up stupidity. However, this is real people!! If you don't care about yourself, then care about those around you or even someone you love. Also help protect those health care workers who must deal with it all so they can look after all patients with all health conditions!!

For those who chose to travel on March break, this might control the transmission of the virus in schools. It is a wise choice, but let's hope that they stay home instead of exposing community members to something they may have brought back.
