Now that the border between Canada and the US is closed due to COVID, it seems that Canadians are suddenly against illegal immigrants. I wonder if this is a true change of heart, or if Canada still feels that the US is wrong?
They are so opposed to Americans entering the country, that they have begun attacking Americans and vandalizing their property.
Some concerned residents who fear that the virus will be spread to their communities have been taking matters into their own hands, spurring so many reports of intimidation that the premier of British Columbia, John Horgan, reminded angry Canadians to “Be Calm. Be Kind” at a July 27 news conference.
Addressing those Americans who are in Canada legally, he said: “With respect to those who have offshore plates and are feeling harassed, I would suggest perhaps public transit. I would suggest that they get their plates changed. I would suggest that they ride a bike.”
