The mayor of Niagara Falls says he doesn’t expect a mad rush of American tourists this week despite the re-opening of the border to fully vaccinated U-S visitors.

Jim Diodati has been calling for the re-opening for months but says the process and requirements may discourage some regular day tourists from crossing the border or those who want to reunite friends and family.

Tourist Janine Steeves from Illinois is in Canada for the first time with her two kids and says it took about 90 minutes to get across the border.

Officials at Niagara Cruises say they also aren’t anticipating a massive surge of people with their vessels only operating at 25 to 30 per cent capacity.

Vaccinated U-S travellers coming here must use the ArriveCAN app or web portal to submit information like vaccination details.
