Don’t expect Ottawa to agree to re-opening the border with the U.S. in the near future.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says any easing of travel restrictions is still ”many weeks” away.
In fact he adds there was still a ”significant amount of time” before the countries could loosen restrictions on non-essential travel.
An agreement between Ottawa and Washington to limit crossings is due to expire next week.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says the government’s talking to the U.S. about extending it.
Regardless of what Donald Trump’s saying about wanting to re-open it, Freeland says decisions about opening our side will be made only by Canadians.
She adds there also also discussions among premiers about interprovincial travel restrictions.
