    you are going to base that belief on a federal employee keeping canadians safe from diseased americans ?

    It was gone for air travel the past month.

    Only random Americans are being tested. Why not randomly test Canadians too? Covid is in both countries at roughly the same rate and has been for some time now. These travel measures do nothing but inconvenience and deter people, as evidenced by the events of the last 3 years.

    Check the vax card and be done with it. Millions of Canadians' livelihoods depend on travel.

    Just as another data point, I've been crossing about once a week since the full opening, always use the app - and have even done it from Blaine and driven up to the booth within 5 mins. They've never asked me for my vax card, nor the AC receipt, and I've never been selected for a covid test.

    The ArriveCan entry is tied to your passport, so it pulls up automagically when they scan that.

    I've been across a couple of times in the last month, and I've had 30 US-based clients travel through as well, and no random tests for anyone. I crossed in Roosville last month and it was super easy and super fast both ways.

    Another data point here. Crossed at Lynden/Aldergrove a couple weekends ago and got handed a test. Was told to do it within 24 hours. I was only up for the day so when I was back in Bellingham mid-afternoon, I had to do a zoom call with a random Canadian dude in a hoodie who "administered" my test. Took about 20 mins. Packaged it up, slapped on the included Fedex label, and went down to Fedex store before they closed. Dude working there told me he wasn't sure on if it would actually make it to it's destination (some testing facility in Surrey) because the label had a Canadian address as origin. I didn't really have much choice so I said to just try and send it. Miraculously, three days later I got an email from the testing facility with a negative result. Weird process.

    I wonder if somehow my test got lost in the mail and they didn't receive it if that would affect future border crossings.

    As far as any of us have been able to tell, they are not following up or keeping track of who does or doesn't take the random test. Have not heard of anybody having trouble crossing because of not sending it in.
