Cruiseships bypass B.C?

Re. Poll: Taking a cruise (Castanet, March 8)

We are planning a cruise to Alaska in May this year.

I can't imagine how 2,300+ people on a cruise ship can get PCR tests or antigen tests. Internet is of variable quality, expensive and will not hold the usual long wait periods for video testing.

I think the best option is for all Alaska cruise ships to bypass Canadian ports completely.

If this happens in 2022, it will likely become permanent. Such a plan has been proposed by Alaska and by many U.S. senators.

Canada, B.C. and our tourist industry, is on thin ice financially. I think American tourists would much rather see another port in Alaska, than go through the hassle of entering a Canadian port.

It's unlikely that common sense will prevail. It hasn't for the past two years.
