    I believe they are holding off on borders until the neighbouring provinces and states improve.. least according to what I read last week it may have changed though.

    There is a sign saying to self isolate. Same one at Emerson too. Critical services exempt. ( that’s us truckers. )

    I mean the Manitoba/Ontario line. I got a friend moving from Ontario to BC. Reason for asking

    Maybe call the non emergency line of rcmp .. they may allow straight through travel although I suspect they will need to isolate in bc..

    put it to you this way..there is no one there to stop you. there is no one standing at the mb/on and there is no one standing at sk/mb or any of the other provincial borders in the west.

    there was for a short time some one at sk going into mb to hand you a paper telling you what we already know. interacting with tones of people from all over each day which means posiibly spreading it. it didnt last long all the cones are gone. Idiots.

    Haven't been over those prairie borders for a while. Did BC/AB last week, both Hwy 1 and 93. The only thing to slow you down were the patrol cars in the parks. They were writing tickets on both highways and it was a Friday.

    Oh yeah, SOB's still have the quota to fill. Love the lack of traffic and room to run, problem is I value my clean license more. Cruise control......works;)
