Air Travel Into Canada Has Declined By Over 50% Thanks To The Latest Restrictions

New data from the Canada Border Services Agency has found that the latest restrictions in Canada have been successful in curbing air travel.

Between February 1 and February 21 — before the travel rules were ramped-up to include additional COVID-19 tests and quarantine hotels — 114,139 travellers entered Canada by air.

However, since the additional measures were implemented, the amount of air passengers has dropped by 54.7% to a total of 65,253 between February 22 and March 14.

While the restrictions appear to be curbing air travel into Canada, land travel across the Canada-U.S. border jumped by 8.9% during the same period, despite new measures there, too.

Justin Trudeau Just Promised To Crack Down On 'Mobs' Protesting In Health Care Settings

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.

With anti-vaccine protests taking place all over the country on September 13, the federal leaders have finally weighed in and Justin Trudeau is not holding back.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13.
