You had better hope Mexico keeps sending the Medical supplies you need after Mexico gets overwhelmed.

I think both borders, north and south are to remain open to trade & essentials.

Yes, they are. I also believe border zone workers can still cross, but that tourism will be discouraged. Although The Chump pretends he's protecting "America", the rest of America is actually safer with the people in the USA not travelling abroad for the time being. The USA seems to be the Hot Zone on this side of the world.

Apparently distillers and brewers in Calgary are switching to making hand sanitizer, so that won't have to be brought in! Or maybe it is just the alcohol for the stuff.

I agree. People coming into Mexico from the USA shouldn't be happening.

Who knows how widespread the infection is in Mexico so far? Only widespread testing can yield that info. However, despite a lack of widespread testing in the U.S. (courtesy of the orange Chump), it is clear that there is widespread infection and serious disease already. And it's rapidly worsening. Just like every movie you ever saw about epidemic contagion. So, Mexico may not yet know what they already have but they can be sure they shouldn't be allowing people to enter from the U.S.!

I'm a retired doctor. Never thought I would live through something like this. Maybe I won't.

Well why don’t you educate me ?

3m makes masks, who does in Canada ?

Every fresh piece of produce I see on Canadian stores is American or Mexican .

The Us still refined and sells gas back to Canada.

The rice , apples tomatoes celery peppers carrots lettuce and garlic I purchased this week in the comox valley was all from the USA.

Most of the people producing it are Mexicans. .

The tests the USA developed give a result in 4/7 hours with a 98% accuracy, not a week with a 80% accuracy of the WHO tests. Canada did 10,000 tests today, results are a week out.

Now you don’t like AMLO you don’t like Trump, you have stated the epidemic will wipe out Mexico and the USA is the next Italy.

Retired healthcare workers are being asked to sew masks at home right now.

Next week I go to the USA to shore up there as I have done here.

I also have family spread across countries, provinces and states.

I don’t see any benefit in constantly screaming about “ what if’s” or “ could haves “ the current task is at hand.

If you have nothing to contribute at the very least don’t be a victim.

Everything that can be done is being done, help or stay out of the way, I know I don’t find your input helpful inspirational or beneficial.

Canada, The USA and Mexico are so intertwined they will rise together or fall together.

You may want to get on board or at least don’t discourage those trying to do their best.

Wishing continued good health and peace of mind.

If you are attempting to confuse me it worked.
I am a huge supporter of Mexican exports and have Mexican family
Don't know where you became so distracted from the beware of the virus message
Mexicans are very fearful of what may come and it makes me sad Trump was in denial for 6 weeks and it cost countless Americans their lives.

Good Health Tp You

FACT: The Chump's ineptitude cost lives. That's what happens when the Peter Principle reaches the White House. I don't recall any remotely similar delay in implementing protocols or the dismantling of emergency response preparations by Trudeau. If he did imitate The Chump's response then yes, he cost Canadian lives.

Maybe you all could exchange e-mail addresses and leave the rest of us out of your pissing contest. That would be nice. Have a marvelous day!

Though it is true that President Trump downplayed the Coronavirus risk for too long, the early ban on Chinese Foreign Nationals entering the US which was railed against by the Left, actually saved many lives. I only wish the ban from European flights had happened sooner. Italy is being devastated in large part to the virus being spread from Chinese tourists and Chinese immigrants among many other reasons. But the initial containment’s measures by President Trump helped to a certain degree in the US. Unfortunately Italy was doomed. With that being said, the other aspects of the US federal government response have been slow and unacceptable. The majority of the blame lies with the Chinese government who hid the epidemic from the world. If not for the brave actions of many Chinese citizens to get the word out, the situation would be worse. I understand the criticism of Trump’s initial handling of the crisis and that is deserved, but I believe the US is finally on the right path. Contrast the actions of the US and Canada, with Mexico. Up until recently, Mexican President Obrador was seemingly making light of the Pandemic, large crowds, concerts in Mexico, etc. Thank god he finally gets it. I feel for the people that get ravaged by the virus and I look forward to the day that life returns to normal. Now is not the time to point at our leaders. That can come later. We need to pull together to make it through. Everyone needs to do their part to stop the spread of the Coron Virus Be safe everyone.

I agree with just about everything you said. But we are in the middle of an election year, so criticism of our leaders comes with the territory. And Trump is such a target-rich environment. He's not helping when he continues to lie and brag about virtually everything at his daily pressers.
