Increased border traffic likely as Canada, U.S. economies reopen | CBC News

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada and the U.S. are working on plans to deal with what she calls an inevitable increase in cross-border traffic as economies in both countries emerge from their pandemic-induced comas.  Freeland says traffic over the shared border is bound to increase as states and provinces reopen shuttered businesses and ease restrictions on personal mobility, even if the current Canada-U.S. ban on non-essential travel remains unchanged. That agreement, which has allowed essential workers and trade shipments to continue to move back and forth between the two countries, was first imposed in March and is set to expire on May 21.  Freeland says discussions about when and how to begin easing those restrictions are ongoing, both between Canada and the U.S. and between the federal government and the provinces.  She says Canada will adhere to the same prudent and sensible approach that has guided it throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.  Watch: Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke about reopening the Canada/U.S. border: Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland spoke to reporters on Parliament Hill on Monday. 1:35 And she says the premiers “by and large” share the same cautious view as the federal government.  “Inevitably, as our economies start to open up … even absent a single change in Canada’s border restrictions, we will see more travel across the border — we’ll see more Canadians choosing to go back and forth, and we’ll see more business activity, which will mean more essential travel,” Freeland said.  “That does mean that the federal government will need to do even more at all of our borders to keep Canadians safe and well, and that is something that we are working on right now, and we’re very focused on.”  On Friday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford made crystal clear how he feels about the prospect of allowing visitors to Ontario from the U.S., where COVID-19 has exacted a brutal toll: more than a million active cases and 81,000 deaths to date.  “I do not want those borders open,” Ford said, noting that his counterparts in Quebec and B.C. feel the same way. Screening at airports and border crossings will need to increase “tenfold”] once the restrictions are lifted, he added.

Nigeria’s president vows to fight militant groups and fix economy as activists call for anti-government protests

“In the last two years we have witnessed and overcome a good number of tests and challenges” that are “especially related to our collective security,” Buhari said during a televised address marking the country’s Democracy Day. “Let me assure you, my fellow citizens, that every incident, however minor, gives me great worry and concern.

Nigeria’s president vows to fight militant groups and fix economy as activists call for anti-government protests

“In the last two years we have witnessed and overcome a good number of tests and challenges” that are “especially related to our collective security,” Buhari said during a televised address marking the country’s Democracy Day. “Let me assure you, my fellow citizens, that every incident, however minor, gives me great worry and concern. We will, by the grace of God, put an end to these challenges,” he said. Buhari, who campaigned on a platform to end terrorism and violence by armed groups, has come under increased criticism over continuing deadly attacks in the northeast and southeast that have resulted in an economic and a humanitarian crisis. During his speech on Saturday, Buhari also said his government is taking steps to address youth unemployment and poverty but admitted “there is much more to be done and we are doing our best.”Activist groups have called for Democracy Day protests and people took to the streets in several parts of the country on Saturday, including in the capital Abuja, where protesters gathered holding placards, saying “Buhari must go.”There were also protests in the southwestern city of Ibadan. Olumayowa Okediran, member of the Students for Liberty group, who was at the protest in Ibadan, told CNN that young people are tired of Buhari’s administration.”We do not want to live under a tyrannical government that bans Twitter at a whim. We don’t want to live in a country where the police brutalizes us,” said Okediran.Last week the Nigerian government said it had “indefinitely suspended” Twitter’s operations in the country. The statement, posted on the Ministry of Information and Culture’s official Twitter handle on June 4, accused the American social media company of allowing its platform to be used “for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”The suspension came two days after Twitter deleted a tweet by President Muhammadu Buhari that was widely perceived as offensive.In that tweet on June 1, the Nigerian leader threatened to deal with people in the country’s southeast, whom he blames for the recurring attacks on public infrastructure in the region.CNN’s Nimi Princewill contributed to this report.
