Across the northern border, Canadians are being forced into COVID quarantine hotels and effectively incarcerated by the government when they arrive in Canada from overseas flights.
CBC News reported:
At the start of the year — in addition to the already required 14-day quarantine period — the government introduced new rules for incoming travellers meant to limit the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.
Travellers crossing by both land and air were required to show a negative COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flights to Canada.
Air and land travellers were also required to undergo both on-arrival and post-arrival COVID-19 tests. In addition, incoming air travellers were required to pre-book and pre-pay for a three-day stay at a government-authorized hotel, where they were to remain in quarantine while waiting for their on-arrival test results.
Footage from inside a Canadian quarantine hotel shows healthcare workers dressed in full medical gowns, face masks, face shields and blue gloves, confronting a man demanding to be released from the hotel.

“I don’t know when my flight is to get out of here. I’ve never committed a Goddamn crime,” the detainee bewails.
“Sir, you’re not a criminal, that’s not it,” a worker replies.
“Then what the hell is going on here? I took three tests. I have a right to know when my test [results are] coming,” the detainee fires back. “I get shit food. Then I have no chance to say what I want. I got an ugly sandwich this afternoon that just makes me puke.”
“Come on, you’re treating me crappy,” he continues. “You’re treating us all very poorly.”

Rebel News, a Canadian-based media outlet, filed a lawsuit against the Canadian government in March over human rights abuse at the internment camps. After returning to Canada from Florida in March, the network’s reporter Keean Bexte faced a $750,000 fine and six months in jail if he refused to quarantine in the COVID hotel.
