To Alaska.

New rules are being introduced for travellers passing through Canada from the USA on their way to Alaska.

They will come into effect just after midnight – on Friday at 12:01 am.

Under the new rules, foreign nationals heading to Alaska through Canada must:

  • Enter Canada at one of five Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) ports of entry: Abottsford-Huntingdon, Coutts (AB), Kingsgate, North Portal (SK) and Osoyoos

  • Stay for only “a reasonable period”

  • Take the most direct route and avoid all national parks and leisure sites

  • Report to the nearest CBSA port of entry before leaving Canada

 

Travellers will also be given a tag to hang from their rear-view mirror explaining when they must leave Canada.

The measures also apply to travellers coming from Alaska to the contiguous US.

The CBSA is also urging travellers to have all documentation ready before they attempt to come into Canada.

Following admission into Canada, in-transit travellers are provided with a Public Health Agency of Canada handout. The document says travellers should:

  • Avoid contact with others while in transit

  • Remain in the vehicle as much as possible

  • Not make any unnecessary stops

  • Practise physical distancing at all times

  • Pay at the pump if they need gas

  • Use a drive through if they need food

  • Wear a suitable mask or face covering while in transit

  • Ensure good hygiene practices if they need to use a rest area

Anyone attempting to enter Canada with COVID-19 symptoms will not be admitted.

Failure to comply with border restrictions could lead to a fine of up to $750,000 and/or imprisonment of up to six months.

Dang...when we drove from Minneapolis to Anchorage back in the day, I think the only rules were we had to limit the alcohol crossing the border to something like 10,000 ounces per person, all guns had to be hidden and not disclosed to the BP and one had to accept that once you were about 100 feet from the US border, Canadian stores would not honor any exchange rate for US money.

For me, not being able to stop at the Laird River hot springs in northern BC is a deal breaker!

If we did this to Mexico, a Hawiian judge would overturn it and everyone would say it is racist.
This could start the CLM movement.

You would think there would be some sort of corridor where access could be expedited for people just traveling through.
