SARCASM WARNING – I do know it’s not April 1, however there’s already a lot negativity on the market, so I’m going to have a bit of enjoyable with this one and provides my comedy profession a strive. So please don’t take this put up significantly! I simply hope that this places a smile in your face by the tip (even in case you are simply laughing AT me for the way unhealthy my jokes are)!
Efficient yesterday, December 15, 2021, the Canadian Federal Authorities issued a journey advisory that most likely trigger fairly a stir.
“Keep away from non-essential journey outdoors Canada, no matter your vaccination standing.”
Numerous feelings is likely to be surfacing, possibly it feels one thing like this:
- Right here we go once more…
- I took the vaccines in order that I can journey. Now this?
- What’s the level of being absolutely vaccinated?
- The federal government already had their likelihood to get it proper in any case this time, not going to hearken to the federal government this time.
- The federal government actually is making an attempt to manage us, they need to be stopped!

- Some people who find themselves not being accountable are ruining it for everybody else.
- The Canadian Authorities didn’t go far sufficient, they need to fully shut the border down.
- Actually everybody… simply keep residence and be secure, it’s not that massive of a deal.
- It’s getting actually chilly outdoors anyway, so I used to be going to remain in anyway.
Did I miss something? Really… what I actually wished to deal with, is what precisely does the federal government imply by this new journey advisory? First, let’s spotlight the present wording on the federal government web site:
- Keep away from non-essential journey outdoors Canada as a result of danger of the Omicron variant that causes COVID-19.
- This advisory overrides all different advisories on this web page, except these the place we advise towards all journey.
- Proceed to keep away from all cruise ship journey outdoors of Canada.
Let’s break them down additional one after the other.
1) Keep away from non-essential journey
At this level, what precisely does “non-essential” represent anyway? Does everybody “need to” instantly cancel all their present journey plans?
Psychological well being is simply as important as my bodily well being! Not letting me go on trip is giving me psychological well being points as a result of I can not get a break. It’s important for me to get a psychological break by happening a trip!
It’s important for me to go to household that I’ve no seen in 2 years. That’s too lengthy to be up to now aside. Household is crucial!
It’s important that I journey now, whereas I nonetheless can, earlier than they shut the border absolutely.
2) Overrides all different advisories
This advisory is a mouth full (see above, below Journey Advisory), and there’s an exception to tag together with it too. Isn’t the one distinction that we’re including the phrase “keep away from non-essential journey” outdoors of Canada. What else is absolutely totally different that we have to override? Wasn’t there an honour system already that we must be avoiding non-essential journey?
Oh wait, appears like now they’re implementing the honour system now?
Additionally, who precisely is imposing the definition of non-essential anyway?
I’m nearly able to be severe, however proper now, I can’t assist however really feel for border brokers and airline gate attendants. Are they suppose to ask every particular person: “Earlier than you get in your flight (or cross the border), I have to know in case you are happening an important journey, in any other case I’ve to show you again?”
3) Keep away from all cruise ship journey outdoors of Canada
Okay, however we are able to go on a cruise ship in Canada? I suppose we go at our personal danger? Most likely higher to keep away from ALL cruises for now…
SERIOUS ALERT— I perceive and admire that these are severe instances and everybody, together with myself, has been negatively impacted by this expertise as it could have affected one in all you or your family members dearly. So hopefully this put up made you snigger (because it was meant to be a joke, and I’m nice in case you are laughing AT me for making unhealthy jokes too).
Since everybody has a special possibility on this matter, I hoped that I used to be capable of seize a bit of everybody’s feelings, in a method form or type, no matter how you are feeling. I personally really feel higher simply having the ability to vent from each angle/perspective (since I’ve very blended feelings). So thanks for studying till now.
Nevertheless, extra importantly, how are you holding up? We might love to listen to your perspective, please tell us within the remark part beneath!
