Looks like Canadians have spoken and over half believe it’s a good idea to shut the border due to the Omicron variant.

According to a recent poll by Leger, 65% of people think the Canadian border should be closed for a “period of time” as the latest variant has already made its way around the world.

What’s more, residents also want to bring back some social distancing rules in specific social settings.

As a result, 64% want COVID-19 vaccines to be mandatory for all residents of their nation because of Omicron, excluding infants and those with medical restrictions.

Do you think we should close the border asap or are we being too hasty?
