Many Canadian citizens, PR card holders and students are stuck in India due to Canada’s ban on flights from India. This ban forces them to travel and stay in a third country to get their RT PCR done and then fly to Canada. This is not only expensive and exploitative, it is discriminatory as well.

While US citizens are going to be allowed from August 9th even as cases balloon in America, Canadian citizens have to put up with the travel ban from India till August 21st? Looks like Canadian citizens are not your priority. Please lift this travel ban immediately. We are Canadians and we support preventive measures to stop the spread of the virus. Many of us are in India for family emergencies. It is unfair to ask us to fly from a third country because Canada does not recognize RT PCR from India though almost all other countries do. 

Justin, we had hopes after you apologized for Komagata Maru. It did take 100 years though. This is not the first instance of Canadians witnessing lack of government support and action. Remember the 1985 Air India flight bombing.? The then Canadian Prime Minister called his Indian counterpart condoling the death of Indian citizens, not realizing that 285 passengers were Canadian citizens. Their families had to wait for decades for justice. Haven’t things changed at all?
