Border guards are people like you and me. Some are pricks and others act like pricks because the power of their jobs got to them. Some are real nice and even have a sense of humour. It certainly helps when you drop a famous/powerful name who is a friend or relative.

Not recent but one time a few years ago I got held up in customs interrogation for several hours and got blasted with a ton of questions lol. I honestly thought I wouldn't get out of it lol

The experience was not fun at all, to put it mildly.
I never understood how they can ask questions for hours. I mean 10-15 minutes should be enough to ask "why are you going in Canada, when you intend to leave" and other normal questions. What did they asked you about during all these hours?

Anyway, just wanted to say (as the title of the thread is about shutdowns) that i hope shutdowns are definately OVER. At this point the only possible reason to have even partial shutdowns would be to "save the health care system" but im tired of this excuse, its time they fix it instead of having to "save it forever". Peoples have acces to vaccines, so whoever want it can get it, and if they don't to, fine, its their choice, anyway its to protect YOU against the severe form, not the spread/catch. And the vast majority of peoples who get it have cold symptoms. Its kinda insane that the biggest issue currently is not the covid patients themselves, its health care workers catching it and having to be off work lol. I mean, technically even for a cold an health care workers should be working, as there is vulnerable peoples, so how come this is so different?

The truth is its time to live our lives WITH the virus. If some peoples are immuno supressed and/or very at risk due to whatever reasons, its sad to say but they should maybe invest (or have governement help on this) in a very high quality respiratory mask, the kind you see in movies when the air is not breathable. I mean, there is surely filters that would filter (filte qui filtrerais...) covid particules. Otherwise i don't know what to say. We ain't gotta keep everyone masked forever... it would mean no sense. If someone is sick, yes ok they could use a mask, or if you are very at risk and want to keep your mask in very crowded area (public transport etc) FINE, but this whole mask mandate everywhere need to go. I doubt it will May 1st but June 1st should be the very stretched limit. When summer arrive and the current "wave" wash off. Summer SHOULD be slower when it comes to covid, so its the time. Now what to do in fall? Should they come back late October til Early March? I hope not but it would at least make a little more sense. Maybe in public transport...

But this whole crazyness of having to put a mask on to enter a convenient store with 1 or 2 peoples in, that need to stop.

quebec was until very recently the only jurisdiction in the western world to still have full mask mandates. We suck.

The U.S. border guards are, always been.

If you think they're bad to Canadian citizens, wait till you see how they treat US citizens (but resident in Canada) visiting the US.

I have a good friend in this position and he dreads going back home for Thanksgiving. It's always an ordeal.

I don't understand this. I never traveled, so i don't know. But whats the point of them being dicks? Shouldn't they be nice and friendly? Is this some form of compensating for their small... you know... I mean whats the whole point in this.

American border agents has always been condescendent dick heads in my experience, it even got worst after 911, after a few politicians falsely blame canadian borders part responsible for the threats. I think it reflects how american governments, in the past, have always blindfully give too much power to their law authorities with barely any questionning until it starts blowing up in their face with social medias and folks constantly filming.

On the topic of border guards, did you know the CBSA, Canadian Border Service Agency has no oversight committee, no watchdog group to monitor the behaviour and conduct of Canadian border guards.

so if the Canadian border guards are out of line, there's no group or committee they can be held accountable to.
