Why some travellers get permission to cross the Canada-U.S. border and others don’t

Kim Zavesky is desperate to return to her home in Golden, B.C. After retiring last year, she and her husband — both Americans — sold their house in Chandler, Ariz., and moved most of their belongings to their second home in Golden, in southeastern British Columbia. The plan was to rent a place in the United States for the first part of the year and spend the rest of the year in Golden. But then the Canada-U.S. border closed to non-essential traffic in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, blocking the couple from accessing their Canadian property. “All my stuff is there, all my documents except for my passport,” Zavesky said. “It’s like not being able to go home.”
