Over 10,000 Americans apparently failed to get the border closed notice
According to new data from the Canada Border Services Agency, thousands of U.S. citizens have been turned away at the Canadian border during the pandemic — and almost half of them were hoping to enter Canada to shop, go sightseeing or simply for recreation.
According to new figures sent to CTVNews.ca by the CBSA, 10,329 U.S. citizens have been turned away from our shared border between March 22 and July 12.
However, despite these efforts, some U.S. citizens have made their way across the border and been fined in Canada after failing to follow public health rules.
A Florida couple was issued provincial offence notices and each received a $1,000 fine after they entered Canada in Fort Erie to attend a seasonal property on July 3.
The two did not comply with the 14 day period of self-isolation after entering the country.
Another American couple, who entered Canada on June 24 near Thunder Bay, were also fined for breaking quarantine rules.
