The US is not homogeneous. Many areas have had very little Corona activity, while other areas are inundated with it. The county where I live has SIX total Corona cases, zero deaths so far. Land mass is about double NYC. Yet the rules here are the same as other counties in NC that have had serious problems.

And by the way, here in western NC, not many are taking their guidance from politicians.

Well Theresa these are extraordinary times the normal rules don't apply.
I'm willing to bet that that campground is lined up just like many others looking for free government money with all the programs made for them.

Those programs are my tax dollars and I hope they don't receive a penny of it treating honest people the way they do. Lets make sure the same rules apply.

Yes, it is unfortunate that the US/Canadian border is closed for your trip.

Yes, it is unfortunate that your reservation money was not returned to you 100%.
Yes, I believe that they are justified in keeping some of your money when it clearly states on their website that a partial refund will be returned if reservations are cancelled with less than 30 days notice. it is in bolded letters on their reservation page and you knew that when booking.

It appears to me that small businesses, especially campgrounds, will need every penny that they can get to stay in business. Following their policies and not making exceptions may tick you off, but if you put yourself in their shoes, it may mean that they will be able to stay isn't a surprise that this is their policy. I sympathize with you but I do believe that your comment about their ethics/morality was not called for. But that is simply my opinion.

Yes, we are restricted from travel outside of our own provinces. No, Americans have not had those restrictions placed on them. That is your country's policy. Our country has made good decisions that have kept our infection rates down. And yes, it has taken away our liberty to travel outside of our own province in our own country. We accept that because we respect the reasons for those restrictions.

Newfoundland and Labrador would love to see you.....some other time. They are closed to anyone from away, which is exactly as it should be.
This pandemic is not over. Don't get complacent and think that it is.

And we respectfully request that you stay home this year.
See you next year.....if it is allowed.
It is not our country's policy, it is our form of government.
When you say We, I doubt that Canadians are anymore united in their support for "those restrictions" than we Americans are, seeing that Canada shares our love for reason and liberty, and many have questions about the policies. Still most of us on both sides of the border, patiently acquiesce.
