Saying ”we just can’t risk it,” Doug Ford wants to keep the border with the U.S. closed to non-essential travel.
The Ontario premier does not think the time’s right to reopen it.
”I want to keep it closed,” Ford adds.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it’s still too early for Canada to confront the challenges that’ll come with reopening the border, adding Canada will be ”very careful” about reopening any international travel.
Ottawa and Washington agreed in March to close the border to non-essential travel.
It was extended in April and is set to expire May 21.
Canada’s reportedly asked for another 30-day extension.
Apparently, it’ll be several days before the U.S. formally agrees.
