Reaction Of Senator Patrick Leahy To Canada’s Decision On Opening Its Border To U.S. Citizens

I am delighted to hear that fully-vaccinated Vermonters will be able to visit Canada for non-essential purposes.  I have been hearing from Vermonters throughout the pandemic about the need to reopen the border and visit our neighbors in the north to see family and friends.  I believe it is important for us to follow Canada’s lead and reopen our side of the border to fully-vaccinated Canadians for non-essential travel purposes. Our Congressional Delegation called for a resumption of greater cross-border travel in the beginning of June and we will continue to call for a safe reopening of the Northern Border until that is accomplished.
