Canadian Boats Forcefully Moored, but Americans Can Get Full Access | May 13, 2021

It’s been fourteen months since the Federal Liberals, closed our border to the US – land, air and sea. Yet, American Charter boats are still operating in Canadian waters, with work permits from CBSA, while Canadian Charter boats are moored at dock.

I questioned Minister Blair in the House last week on this. He mentions “reciprocity”. There is no reciprocity with the US on this. Canadian charter boats are not granted work permits by the US.

It’s the RCMP’s job to police the sea border which they have failed to do. Except for one recent sting, the American charter boats have been flaunting our border restrictions.

The Canadian Charter boat captain wants the Liberals to enforce the sea border. They also want Minister Blair to permanently pull these work permits.

As usual Minister Blair avoided the Question
