Canada has extended their border restrictions once again between the United States and our skittish neighbors to the north.

Canada claims the border will remain on lockdown as they work to get a higher percentage of its residents vaccinated against COVID-19.

“We’re still seeing cases across the country and we want to get them down,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement.

“At the same time, we also know we have to hit our targets of 75% vaccinated with the first dose and at least 20% vaccinated with the second dose before we can start loosening things up because even a fully vaccinated individual can pass on COVID-19 to someone who is not vaccinated.”

Oh, Canada

Who Knows When Canada will reopen the US border? Because Canada is as clueless as ever.

Last week Canada announced that the border between the two countries will remain closed to non-essential travel through July 21 – a ban that was originally put in place in March 2020.

“Our No. 1 priority as we fight COVID19 is keeping Canadians safe,” Bill Blair, the Canadian minister of public safety wrote on Twitter. “In coordination with the U.S., we are extending restrictions on non-essential international travel and with the United States until July 21st, 2021.”

But on the same exact date, Canada changed their leftist mind:

“Update at our borders: today we announced our intention to permit fully-vaccinated U.S. citizens and permanent residents to enter Canada for non-essential travel without mandatory quarantine requirements, effective August 9 at 12:01 AM EDT”

Which they immediately followed up with:

“And effective 12:01 AM EDT on September 7, we intend to permit all fully-vaccinated travellers meeting specific requirements to enter Canada. Entry to Canada will continue to be prohibited for all travelers who are not fully vaccinated.”
