Canada waited too long to close borders: Canada’s top doc

The reality is that you will never have the capacity that Taiwan did at the US / Canada border without much more intrusive examination by Border Officers. I doubt the travelling public has the appetite for that outside of a pandemic.

Up until now the focus has been on a light touch approach with examinations being measured in seconds. CBSA management is obsessed with wait times. This is justified by cbsa leadership because if wait times increase past an hour the public tends to raise hell.

So, you want better screening ? Expect significantly increased waits at the border. Unfortunately we don’t get to have our cake and eat it too on this one.
