In an effort to discourage Canadians from traveling abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has imposed a new set of requirements that must be met upon their return. The government is taking these measures because, of course, it wants to keep its citizens safe. If you thought the idea of a vaccine passport was draconian, read on.

First, in true authoritarian style, he tells Canadians that “now is not the time to travel. If you have plans to head somewhere for the long weekend, cancel them.” Got it?

If an individual must travel, they are required to show a negative PCR test result before boarding their return flight. The U.S. has just adopted this measure as well.

However, Trudeau is requiring Canadians to take a second PCR test upon landing. “When you land, you’ll need to take another PCR test,” he says. “You’ll then have to wait at an approved hotel, and at your own expense, for your results to come back.”

If the test result is negative, you may go home to complete your mandatory quarantine. If it’s positive, “you’ll need to immediately quarantine in designated government facilities. This is not optional.”

He runs through similar requirements for those returning to Canada by land.

Finally, he wants his people to know that he’s doing this for the common good. He writes, “These border measures are some of the strongest in the world – and they’re in place to keep you, your loved ones, and your community safe.”

Yes, dear leader.
