To understand the importance of the land border being open between Canada and the United States you may have to live in a border town. It is an extension of our neighborhood; it is part of our life.

I own a condo in Ellicottville, it is one hour and 15 minutes door to door from my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. I don’t understand the logic that I can fly to Buffalo with hundreds of passengers, through busy airports, but my husband, my son and I cannot travel from our home, in our car, to our condo … coming into contact with only the Customs officer. This policy does not make sense. Please open borders. We miss our American friends, family and businesses that we love to support.
