no provincial boarder has been closed, there may have been a few check spots asking you to think about if your travel is really necessary, but they cant legally stop a Canadian from going say from BC to Alberta or the other way. if I decide it is necessary for me to visit my parents in the next province then it is.

Yhea no provincial closure at all, may long in sicamous was nothing but alberta plates, and the BC companies trying to survive there had no problem with that at all.

Still crazy we can all ram into a grocery store or costco yet so many campgrounds and parks still closed, freaking stupid. Especially if you have your own rv with own shower and toilet.


yup, as far as I am concerned camping is by nature social distancing. sure you meet people and sit around a fire and BS but sit on opposite sides of the fire and your socially distanced. to easy.

It's not just the camping. Lots of parks here in Ontario like Pinery and Iverhuron both on Lake Huron just to name a few have crowded beach areas as well. Camping without access to the water would suck.

Well there are some provinces that have closed their borders to outsiders and maybe more joining. You may have to copy and paste this. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/travel-canada-provinces-covid-19-restrictions-1.5589316

Restricting my right to travel any where in Canada any time I like is illegal. Only the Federal Government has the power to do that and only under the most severe conditions which I do not see Covid as a qualifier. I welcome the Charter Challenge.

You want to lock the country down, get the Fed's to do it legally.

shum02, well all I can say is give it a try with one of these provinces and then come back here and let us know how you made out.

I’m not sure what you do / did for a living, but it’s not a lawyer I’m sure. Under the Emergency Measures legislation they can, and have, restricted travel.

In a state of emergency they can restrict travel, arrest those that defy those orders, in a situation like a forest fire they can conscript people to fight that fire.

No Charter challenge is required, it’s settled law.

Apparently not because they are being challenged. If you are ok with your politicians restricting your movements without proper legal recourse and oversight i pity you, you are a fool. Things are not as black and white as you would think or wish.

I don't blame those 4 provinces doing what they are doing. They have the lowest confirmed cases in Canada and want to keep it that way. All the power to them.
If a person thinks that the Charter of Rights is more important than a Province trying to protect their people that person is a fool.

shun02 don't let nothing but fear, stupidity and common sense hold you back from doing whatever you want to do.
