border skirmish…

Updated from August 3,2020 post to reflect the Canadian border is now open to Americans .

(cherry picked from various news sources)

Canada lifted its prohibition on Americans crossing the land border to shop, vacation or visit on Monday while the United States remains shut in maintaining similar restrictions for Canadians. U.S. citizens and legal residents must be both fully vaccinated and test negative  for COVID-19 within three days to get across one of the world’s longest and busiest land borders.

Meanwhile in the U.S., the Delta variant has fuelled a six-month high of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations leading to roaring spikes in cases among unvaccinated people in the United States , prompting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to re-introduce guidance advising vaccinated people to wear masks indoors.

Predicting the way COVID-19 variants will behave once more people cross the border will be difficult, because of how little is known about the strains.

Delta is now increasing the chances of the virus reaching the unvaccinated and evidence is mounting that the Delta variant is capable of infecting fully-vaccinated people at a greater rate than previous versions, although those who become infected are less likely to see severe symptoms requiring hospitalization.

Canuck guardians at the border

The 49th Parallel is the longest undefended border in the world. The 5,525-mile-long border between Canada-and the United States of America was the longest undefended international boundary in the world until COVID 19 arrived. A public pandemic revealed the cultural differences between proper defences needed to maintain health for the population north of the 49th and the porous sense of entitlement south of the 49th that has led to a sweeping infection of it’s own population. To spite the spirit of American exceptionalism and pandemic recklessness , the latest version of gifting by the greatest democracy in the world, has to be turned aside by sound science and vigilant Canuck border guards.

Generations of Canadians have carried subliminal and visceral fears of American influence while happily absorbing the onslaught and infiltration of cultural and mercenary methods of the American way…not anymore… viral carpet bombing north of the 49th is the pandemic line that must not be crossed.

The longest undefended southern border of the Great Dominion must now be defended against the potential onslaught of the carpet bombing viral hosts of the irrational…with vigilance ,vaccines and masks!

Editors note: the writer of the text suffered a hyperbolic fit but we can allow that just this once!
