  1. He should have closed the border in January. Why be reactive when you can be proactive?

  2. Close it

    Health officials needs to be investigated for their reports on “Low Risk” of infection.

      @Clark Kent Other way around. Our healthcare is so bad Canadians go to America to get treatment. Why sit on a waiting list for months to get your finger put back on when you can just go to florida and pay out of picket to get fixed.

    Prime Minister, will you immediately close Roxham Road. If you mean business you will do so. If you leave it open, you are jusy blowing fluff as usual. Banning will all incomi g flights from China would also be prudent.

  8. Why are they translating the French when he repeats it in English

    ” no horses left in the barn? Ok close the barn door now”,,,,

  10. Why translate when the Prime minister is already doing it in bilingual.

  11. He is wearing – corona face

  12. Don’t close American border but they are the ones with the most risks now

    …what about Roxham Rd? Are you still letting immigrants through…?

  15. 87% of cases linked to international travel. Allowing flights to Canada’s biggest cities from foreign countries is stupid. Why not send flights to say, a military base and set up quarantine there if you wont ban flights from other countries.

  16. What about Roxham road?
    They don’t get screened on that road they just walk right in.

  17. Probably 2 months late @ this point. As of now, internal controls are needed as well, to put a halt to community infection.

  18. Too late. This should’ve been done in mid-February at best.

    But better something than nothing at this point.

      Yeah… better than idling and fooling around for no reason

    • Canada is competing to be in top 10……422 cases now, a week ago it was like 50 cases.

    • @josh77577 Absolutely wrong; Trump closed off travel from China three weeks after this started, closed off Europe, Iran, etc. Until now we have been allowing travelers from everywhere to enter Canada with NO enhanced screening but a tick box on a customs card.

      Better than nothing, guys. Better than…nothing.

    • The Canadian government is always REactive when it comes to doing things that cost money, even though every single time they end up paying more later. The only thing the government is PROactive in doing is giving themselves a raise before doing any actual work.
