  • I take off from the USA to Canada only to learn we have to wear masks for the 3.5 hour flight
  • FA tells us we are the lucky ones as this restriction ends Friday
  • Goes on to say masks are required in trains and airplane but noplace else (busses, public locations, etc.)
  • I arrive in CA and hustle to get though immigration and customers: No Problems
  • I get to the hotel and see that CA notified me that I have been randomly selected to get a COVID test and to go to someplace in the airport to get tested. I am not 45 minutes away from the airport
  • Another option is to get a test locally. I have no transportation. But I do find a place that gives you the self test.
  • After filling out 7 multi-page requests, with all of the same information (name, home addy, addy in CA, Registration number, flights in and out, email registration number, home assessment number, and test kit number) I finally have a Zoom appointment to shove a swab down my nose and send it in
  • I leave at 7 am Wednesday morning, before they get the results
  • The entire program is done Friday so if I had come in next week, none of this would be necessary.
As screwed up as the USA is, Canada is a dictatorship. In the meantime, everyone in Canada (hotel, medical facility, etc.) just laughs and shakes their heads. Total Shit-Show. As Reagan said "govt is not the answer to your problems, govt is the problem"

I was in Canada in June for a cruise. I was sweating getting flagged for a random test

Yeah - I did a 6 hr loop near Thunder Bay to knock off Ontario and that was a hassle. Bigger hassle was border goons not quite understanding why I’d visit for just 6 hours. Rummaged through my trunk only to get a whiff of smelly hiking socks.

5 provinces and territories to go until I’ve covered all o’Canada

Thank you Jesus for governor Ron DeSantis. He keeps at least part of America free and safe. Make America America again
