Council Urges Feds To Keep Border Closed

58

City council says it wants the federal government to keep the border between Canada and the United States closed until American COVID-19 infection rates match that of Canada.

Mayor Christian Provenzano, said “Canada has flattened the curve and slowed the spread of this virus and that hasn’t happened yet in the United States.”

“The United States hasn’t flattened the curve and they haven’t slowed the spread of their virus. Now is not the time.”, Provenzano said.

Provenzano is mindful of the “really close relationship” council has with Mayor Don Gerrie and his six city commissioners in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

The border closed between the two countries on March 21. With the most recent extension running until July 21.

Under the current travel ban only essential travellers can cross between the two borders.

    • Frank Montagna Sigh. Ask Italy. Ask the smart ones in the USA.
      Your numbers don’t take into account that we shut the whole world down to keep them this low.
      Without mitigation the virus you spread today will kill 30 people in 30 days.
      The math doesn’t lie, but you have to be able to use math.
      1×2^10=1024
      1024×3%=30

    • Charlie Lamble I suggest you do some more thorough research my son, it’s your kind of uneducated fear mongering that is putting us in peril! Sheep like you! I say good day sir!!

    • Frank Montagna You seem to have no concept of reality.
      It is only because they locked down that they kept it to 35,000 deaths.
      35,000 deaths in a couple of months mind you, not a whole year as you like to compare against.
      35,000 people that could easily have turned into 350,000 without mitigation, and all at once.
      Try telling the 200,000 or so folks that lost a loved one that those deaths were insignificant.
      And please name the one out of however many loved ones you have that you think should be the one to go. (I’d say 1 out of 100 or 500 or whatever you like via your statistics but I doubt you have more than ten)

    • Frank Montagna Deaths lag behind cases by about a month.
      It takes 14 days for the incubation period, another week or two to die a slow, horrible death, alone, with no family by their side or a chance to make final preparations, then another week or so for the death certificate to circulate into the system.
      You really are ignorant of the facts.
      What make you dangerous is that you think you know it all and are an expert, when in reality you are clueless.
      Look up the Dunning Kroeger effect. You are a shining example and your cognitive dissonance is showing.

    • Charlie Lamble lol come back with some facts son not your gut feelings it’s simple you are just wrong on everything about this virus! Go put a mask on it’s about as effective as your rhetoric

    • Meanwhile, as you go about your days unmasked, just know that you are risking the life of someone’s gramma or grampa.
      While I think it is admirable that you are fighting so hard for your rights, you are literally fighting for the right to keep spitting on others.
      Maybe find a cause that doesn’t make you look like an idiot.

    • Want some more? Or would you like it with smaller words?
      I have two microbiologists on my team, I’m licensed by Health Canada to manufacture PPE. What do you have?

    • Charlie Lamble if you were a educated man like you claim you would look at hard numbers! Not your personal gut feelings you would know mitigation did piss all ask New York! Your just a mouthpiece of media narrative!

    • And just so you know, I was never trying to change your mind. It is as I said too messed with cognitive dissonance.
      I was however providing valuable insight and entertainment to the other readers in this thread at your expense.
      I hope everyone checks your profile as well so they will recognize you in public and steer clear.

  4. Already too many US citizens getting across and they don’t follow the rules of self quarantine.
    Why risk our health care system and our citizens.
    Keep the border CLOSED!!!

    • Safety is important, yes. Continually asking what opinions are when you already know because there have been MANY stories asking the same question over and over. How many times do you need to be asked?

    • Kathy Vert Poluck I think the repetition stems from the those yelling to open the borders. So many do not take covid seriously. True the infection will not kill everyone but it will kill some and we no longer know who the dead will be …repetition mostly happens because there is resistance to the idea.
