Throw us a bone, here @main street .
Whats the chance of old mate Justin firing up on a "traffic light" system ala UK. Surely Australia/ NZ would be lower risk than allowing the festy plague ridden citizens of the US across the border?
I understand there is an economic component to cross border travel but are there similar discussions regarding international tourism imperatives as well?
Sorry,.... I deal in reality, not fantasy.
Under "normal" conditions Canada would realize more tourism $$ in a day from the USA than it would get via Australia / Unzud in a year....... The amount of 'Murcans that have homes and or cottages in Canada is staggering,......... Absolutely no way the border will open to ANZACS before its fully open to the US....... Never going to happen.
Think about it for a minute.....
Under your scenario, the ONLY way in would be direct via Vancouver if there was a joined bubble...... Now Air Canada would love that,..... but,..... Hello $10,000 a seat in cattle class ?? ...... You better believe it..... Economics 101.
Here's the other pesky little detail....... what ongoing infection rates for Canada would the Australian govt tolerate in order to let Aussie people back in after their very expensive OS jaunt ??
You can be certain that there will not be some magical switch flicked and all the restrictions will disappear in the next few months or so,..... That's ridiculous fantasy and a waste of time to be frank.
