    Spear warned that vaccine mandates "will have vast unintended consequences." "The U.S. is already facing unprecedented supply chain disruptions and delays due to many factors, including significant labor shortages, production shutdowns, a shortage of raw materials, and pent-up consumer demand," Spear continued, adding, "Our data shows that a vaccine mandate may very well further cripple the supply chain throughout the country by forcing up to 13% of drivers to leave the industry entirely." Trucking group Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association also went after the administration over vaccine mandates. The organization's spokeswoman, Norita Taylor, called the jab requirement an example of "how unnecessary government mandates can force experienced owner-operators and independent truckers out of business" and warned that the mandate would "send safe drivers off the road," the AP said. Canadian truckers aren't happy about it either. In a story from the Toronto Star headlined, "A trucking nightmare: Supply chain horrors feared as thousands of unvaccinated drivers won't be allowed to cross U.S.-Canada border," Canadian Trucking Alliance President Stephen Laskowski said, "This is making a bad situation a lot worse....
    Chelsea Manning has asked a court in Canada to overturn her travel ban so she can visit friends, hoping to visit the country despite border agents eager to expel her. Manning, 33, has been blocked from visiting the country due to her conviction for leaking military secrets to WikiLeaks. Manning served seven years in prison from 2010-17 for breaking the Espionage Act. In one of his last acts as president, Barack Obama commuted Manning's sentence and she was released from her 35-year sentence.  In September 2017 she was stopped at the border, trying to enter Quebec, and has been fighting ever since to regain her right to enter the country. On Thursday a hearing was held in Ottawa, which government lawyers invited her to attend in person because they wanted to forcibly remove her if she lost her case.  Chelsea Manning, pictured in May 2019, is asking a court in Canada to overturn a ban on her traveling to the country 'The minister submits that holding an admissibility hearing without the person concerned being physically present in Canada would...
    BURKE, New York -- When COVID-19 restrictions made it difficult for a Canadian bride to have her family at her US wedding, she did the next best thing -- she brought her wedding to the border.Karen Mahoney and her new husband, Brian Ray, told CNN they met 35 years ago over a love of skiing, and when they finally got engaged in March, the ski instructors didn't want to wait to get married. But Mahoney said there was really only one thing that mattered to her: having her parents and 96-year-old grandmother at the wedding."She's my only living grandparent, the only grandparent I've ever known, so it was very important for me for her to be there to watch the happiest day of my life," Mahoney said. "The most important part of the day for us was the promises we told to each other, and we wanted my parents and grandmother to witness that."The United States has been limiting non-essential travel at land crossings with Canada since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and extending those restrictions on a monthly...

    The fact the Biden administration is waiting longer than the Trudeau administration in Ottawa to allow vaccinated residents to cross into the opposite country is somewhat akin to a border wall – like the one along U.S.-Mexico that President Biden halted in January, the panel of "The Five" debated Wednesday. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus in North America, the U.S.-Canadian border has been subject to some of the tightest restrictions, with extremely limited situations qualifying as essential crossings. On "The Five," the panel discussed how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a liberal, announced August 9 as the date vaccinated Americans can once again visit their nation's closest ally. Host Dagen McDowell noted that the U.S.-Mexico border is a "free-for-all" for unvaccinated and unvetted foreign nationals under Biden's new lax homeland security policies, while Canadian citizens have been prevented from entering the United States. "They postponed the Canadian border reopening until August 21," McDowell said of Biden's administration. "Canada is letting vaccinated Americans into Canada starting on August 9." "Are they saying vaccinated Canadians can't come to this country but unvaccinated...
    By Rob Gillies | Associated Press TORONTO — Canada announced Monday it will begin letting fully vaccinated U.S. citizens into Canada on Aug. 9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept. 7. Officials said the 14-day quarantine requirement will be waived as of Aug. 9 for eligible travelers who are currently residing in the United States and have received a full course of a COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, who said he spoke with U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Friday, said the U.S. has not yet indicated any plan to change current restrictions at the land border. Canadians are able to fly into the United States with a negative COVID-19 test. Asked in Washington if the U.S. would reciprocate, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, “We are continuing to review our travel restrictions. Any decisions about resuming travel will be guided by our public health and medical experts. … I wouldn’t look at it through a reciprocal intention.” U.S. Democratic Congressman Brian Higgins, whose district includes Buffalo...

    The new migration crisis affecting Central America, Mexico and the United States is far from over. In March, 19,000 children were detained on the US-Mexico border. Are any effects expected up to the Canadian border? Sputnik takes part. The Biden administration has not been able to cope with the large influx of migrants from the South, including several thousand children. 1There is In April, the media aired the footage Two little girls were started From the top of a wall by kidnappers. In March, 19,000 unsupported children Were placed under the charge of U.S. authorities. On the first day of his term, Joe Biden signed an executive order ordering a halt to the construction of the border wall with Mexico. At the same time, the president announced that he wanted to regularize the situation of “dreamers” who came to the United States illegally when these 700,000 people were in the minority. Since then, Joe Biden has been accused of giving false hope to thousands of immigrants whose situation cannot be rectified in the short term. Immigrants to the Canadian border?...
    By Moira Warburton VANCOUVER (Reuters) - Christina Kelly did not picture marrying her American sweetheart in the Peace Arch Park - a 42-acre (17-hectare) stretch of manicured lawns and neatly trimmed garden beds at an otherwise unremarkable border crossing in the Pacific Northwest. Kelly, a 28-year-old Canadian legal assistant from Vancouver, had been crossing back and forth between British Columbia and Washington state to see her boyfriend without a hitch for two years. The start of the coronavirus pandemic, and the closure of the Canada-U.S. border in March 2020, forced a change of plans. Where many couples have reluctantly put off weddings, Kelly and her now-husband, who is in the U.S. Navy, decided to proceed anyway and tied the knot two months ago in the one place where they have been able to see each other during the past year. "We would have gotten married at some point," she said. "But (COVID-19) had to speed things up." It "wasn't my ideal wedding," Kelly said, recalling how she shivered in her white wedding dress in the cold and muddy park, as...
    The flow of illegal aliens into the United States is growing so rapidly the Biden administration is preparing to fly them to the Canadian border so as to expedite “processing” them into the country, according to the Washington Post. While former President Donald Trump’s immigration policy was aimed at securing U.S. borders and preventing people from entering the country before they were vetted — including testing for the Chinese coronavirus — President Joe Biden has turned the effort on its head. This means that what were once detention centers are now reception centers welcoming thousands of migrants into the country on a daily basis. On Friday alone, 1,000 people, including families and Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), crossed the U.S. border with Mexico, according to the Post. The paper, which disparaged Trump’s immigration policy on a daily basis, reported on the Biden administration’s “scramble to contend with a widening emergency that officials say they do not view as a ‘crisis’ but a ‘stressful challenge’”: The extraordinary volume of unauthorized border crossings in recent days has left the families and minors waiting...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi provided her take Friday on the state of the situation with immigrants at the border that the Biden administration does not want to call a 'crisis' – terming it 'under control.' Pelosi made the statement at a press briefing at the Capitol, after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to walk back her own comment Thursday after briefly referring to the crush of childhood migrants at the southern border as a 'crisis.' When a reporter asked her to follow up, Psaki corrected herself and referred to 'challenges' at the border. 'The Biden administration has this under control,' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday when asked about the situation at the southern border Pelosi, asked for her view, described thematic changes from the Trump administration.  'The Biden administration has this under control. It is changed. And it will take some time. But it is values based. Humanitarian in its aspects. Pragmatic with a plan to get things done,' she said.  'I think that the administration is pulling this thing under control, and I think it's...

    A Canadian man drove an American family more than 1,000 miles through a snowstorm after they became stranded on their way to Alaska.  Lynn Marchessault, her children, Payton, 13, and Rebecca, 10, along with their two dogs and a cat, hit the road from Georgia to Alaska in November after their trip had been pushed back a few months due to coronavirus restrictions in Canada.  Marchessault told CNN that she waited for months for the travel documents that would allow her to drive from Georgia, through Canada and up to Alaska. Eventually getting those documents in November, the family set out on the cross-country adventure to reunite with Marchessault's husband, Tim, who is an Army staff sergeant stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Gary Bath (second from left), of Canada, drove American family, Lynn Marchessault (third from left), her son, Payton, (third from right) and daughter, Rebecca (second from right) more than 1,000 miles through a snowstorm to get to Marchessault's husband, Tim (right), in Alaska Marchessault and her family began their journey in Georgia, but it's unclear exactly what...
    FORT KENT, Maine (AP) — A lost dog's journey across the Canadian border and back was complicated by coronavirus restrictions limiting movement from a town on one side of the St. John River to a Maine town on the other. Diamond, a German shepherd, escaped from her home in New Brunswick on Saturday and crossed a border bridge into Fort Kent, Maine, where coronavirus restrictions prevented her caretakers from following, the Bangor Daily News reported. The owner, Paryse Michaud, was at her daughter's hockey tournament several hours away when she got the news that the 17-month-old shepherd had escaped from their home in Clair, New Brunswick. Michaud's father was looking after the dog when she escaped, the newspaper reported. Michaud posted a plea for help on Facebook, saying the dog had crossed the border. Over the next six hours, Michaud received updates from people in Maine tracking the dog, the newspaper reported. A friend found the dog in a garage and coordinated with other friends on the Canadian side for a handoff. Finally, Michaud got a text with a photo...

    The grandmother of the New York state trooper who worked as Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bodyguard and was transferred to the Canadian border after starting a relationship with the politician’s daughter is speaking out to reveal the couple had been together for a 'long time' and even discussed marriage.  Dane Pfeiffer, a former tennis player and state trooper, 35, is believed to have struck up a relationship with the governor’s daughter Cara Kennedy-Cuomo, 25, in April during the pandemic. Last month it was revealed that Pfeiffer, who became a trooper in 2015, was reportedly reassigned to a post near the Canadian border after Gov. Cuomo learned of the relationship. Dane’s 95-year-old grandmother Marianne Pfeiffer says the governor is being 'ridiculous' in his handling of the romance.  'I think he’s being ridiculous because he’s always been a good friend of the family – and a good friend of Dane,' Pfeiffer said to the New York Post.   The grandmother of state trooper Dane Pfeiffer, 35, (left) who was transferred to the Canadian border after starting a relationship with Gov.

Trooper Dane Pfeiffer struck up a relationship with Cara Kennedy-Cuomo, 25, around seven months ago when he was part of her father's security detail in Albany and she had moved into the Executive Mansion during the coronavirus pandemic, according to sources.

    Calais, Maine (KGO) -- A Canadian couple did not let closed borders deny their friends in the United States the joy of seeing them tie the knot.Their creative solution to the obstacle was to hold their wedding on the border.RELATED: Coronavirus Outbreak: San Francisco International Airport brace for travelers leaving US for European travel banThey got married on a pier in the province of New Brunswick, right across the river from Maine.The couple invited 50 guests for an outdoor ceremony on the Canadian side. 15 other friends were able to see the action from across the river on the U.S. side.The couples' grandparents saw the ceremony from a boat in the water.RELATED: Everything to know about California's confusing coronavirus reopening plan, summer shutdown and what comes nextThe border closure agreement between the U.S. and Canada was set to expire Wednesday, but was extended until at least November 21 after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed concern for the way the Unites States is handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

    FLAG ISLAND, Minn. — “Wow, that was easy,” my sister Christina said over the pleasant roar of the 250-horse Mercury outboard as familiar Lake of the Woods landmarks like the Oak Island beaches, Laketrails Base Camp and the Flag Island lighthouse began to take shape on the horizon ahead. She and I were among 11 family members and friends (and four dogs) who had left the mouth of the Warroad River roughly 75 minutes earlier on a 24-foot tritoon, bound for our family’s Flag Island cabins on a hot and sticky, but relatively calm, Saturday morning in July. Every other trip there among the hundred or more that my sister had made, starting in the summer of 1979 when she was not yet a year old, had been taken primarily by land, through Canada. With the coronavirus pandemic closing the Canadian border to most travelers — even those American cabin owners and tourists seeking safe passage through Manitoba without stopping — a trip across the big water was about the only way to go. The traditional overland journey from Warroad,...
    Last week, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the Canada-US border would remain closed for most people until at least Aug. 21, with additional extensions of the border closure possible beyond that date. Basically, it means that non-essential travel can’t take place between the two countries right now, which is no surprise given how the situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic in the US is continuing to spiral out of control. There is, however, at least one group of people who are allowed to cross the border and travel to and from Canada into the US. Canadian truckers can still continue their work as normal — but, increasingly, they don’t want to. That includes people like Leanne Steeves, a long-haul truck driver from Ontario who told CBC News she’s concerned about being in the US because we don’t seem to be taking the virus seriously enough. “It’s like they don’t care,” she said of Americans. “Life is normal. Nothing’s changed for them.” A Reddit thread about this news highlighted the quote from another truck driver, Dan Carson from southern...
    An American woman has shared a series of videos on TikTok in which she showed how she got her Canadian fiancé across the US border — and some viewers are slamming her for it. Lauren, who is from Idaho, is engaged to Corey, who is based in Alberta. They can only spend six months at a time in the other person's country, but the pair normally manage to be together by going back and forth and traveling a lot. Due to the pandemic — and a mostly-closed border between the two countries — they had been staying put in Canada for months until Lauren return home — which is how they concocted a plan to get Corey to Idaho with her. Story: Lauren, from Idaho, and Corey, from Alberta, can only spend six months at a time in the other person's country — so when Lauren's time in Canada ran out, they made for the US 'This is the story of our attempt to cross the US-Canadian border while it is closed due to COVID,' Lauren said in...
    BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — An economic research study indicated border restrictions resulting from the coronavirus could reduce future cross-border shopping trips into Washington state by Canadians. The Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University released a report concerning money spent by Canadians in Whatcom County in northwest Washington, The Bellingham Herald reports. The border between Washington state and British Columbia has been restricted to essential travelers and commercial trade since March 21 because of the pandemic. The restrictions are scheduled to expire July 21, but experts believe some controls will be extended through the summer. Easing border restrictions may not prevent a long-term impact on Canadian shopping behavior in Whatcom County, the research report said. “Even after the restrictions are lifted, concerns about public health and safety could continue to inhibit Canadians from shopping in the U.S.," the report said. For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. But for some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can...
    Grand Forks Sector Border Patrol agents arrested eight migrants who illegally crossed the Canadian border into Montana. The agents identified the group as Bolivian nationals — some of whom had previously been declared inadmissible. Grand Forks Sector officials received information on Saturday morning about a group on foot heading away from the Canadian border, according to information obtained from sector officials. Agents wearing Coronavirus protection equipment responded to the area located west of the Pembina Port of Entry. The agents found the migrants approximately two miles west of the port of entry. During an interview, the agents identified the subjects as Bolivian citizens who admitted to having illegally crossed from Canada. The agents arrested the group and transported them to the station for medical screening and processing. A records check revealed that one family unit had previously been classified as inadmissible by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2019. Upon completion of the screening and background investigation, the agents expelled the Bolivian migrants to Canada through the Emerson, Manitoba Port of Entry under Title 42 Coronavirus protection protocols put in place...
