  1. The Federal Government has our backs by allowing international travel? Thanks for the lockdowns and destroying our economy.

      @Zaku Brigadier international travel does not make up a great part of our economy if you knew anything about economics and our country which is Canada, you would understand that export is the most important part of our economy. And up from that export the most crucial is the Vancouver wharf. That is not international travel. That is freight. That is a WHOPPING 33% of the entire country’s revenue.

      I also don’t know how old you are. But you may remember Air Canada asked for a bailout? The airlines could not support themselves back a few decades ago….. So think about that.

    • Yup exactly! They knew about this new variant in the UK but kept our borders WIDE OPEN for days.

    • International travel was not about economy, AIR CANADA maybe, REFUGEES, definitely. ECONOMY not a chance

    • Regardless of what you do, you CANT eliminate a bloody virus lol its no worse then the flu. No restrictions at all should be in place. Get your heads out of the clouds and wake up

    • @ardvarq Not according to your experts.

  4. 36000 passengers walk through Pearson airport weekly.

  5. Oh no! Not the new variant! And it’s a different colour!

    Plaque inc player: virus has mutated a new ability

  17. “Okay we’re gonna need some electronic slightly creepy but tech-y sci-fi music for this one to slightly spook them out about the new variant….”

  18. I laughed when the doctors said “the new variant is not in Canada yet” like they would actually even be able to have that information. lol.

  19. We’re on lockdown but flights still come in. Think about that.
