      I don't set my bar relative to third world countries nor do I desire to visit them.

        Not sure where you set your bar?
        If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

          Nexus interview was on time and not any trouble. Made a nice midweek trip for us. Crossing back our border agent was humorless and gruff. Guess not her best day. Minor gripe. Now we will both have Nexus. Not much of a delay either side.

Here the health and safety of others may be implicated. No such argument can be made in the state’s favour with respect to asking about a woman’s pregnancy or whether she’s had an abortion.
            Privacy is privacy ... slippery slope when you make exceptions regardless of the situation. Give an inch and never get it back.
            I guess you still believe the MSM, government, public health and Px narrative, while I've rarely worn a mask in public since MAR2020.

              From a Canadian perspective, I believe in the manner in which our Charter of Rights has been crafted and interpreted, more specifically, the idea that our rights are not absolute. In certain cases, public health and safety, for example, the government is permitted to breach those rights in a limited manner to ensure public health and safety. I have never subscribed to the absolutist view. By the way, the breach here, if a breach occurred (and I think that it did), was in the USA. Their rules apply; our Charter does not. However, if such questions had been posed in Canada (yes I know that our circumstances regarding abortion rights are different), Canadian courts would likely have found the customs officer’s questions egregious and an unjustifiable breach of the individual’s Charter privacy rights. The ultimate reaction by the SCOTUS to such questioning is anyone's guess given the majority's views.

              With all that said, it will come as no surprise that I was not sympathetic to the trucker’s convoy members’ appeal to the absolutist (me-first) view, which you appear to favour. Fortunately, our courts weren’t and aren't buying their position either.

              This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.
