3 cases of the new British strain ID’d in Ontario. All related to travel.  Federal government allows people to land here with no testing (except in Alberta) and requires those arriving to quarantine on essentially the honour system.  Apparently because a false negative is more dangerous than no test at all. Not surprising we’re seeing the new variant.

Testing would serve no purpose given the delays in results.  Those in quarantine are monitored regularly by phone and knocks on the door.  I'm not aware of any other democratic country doing things any differently than are we.  The British strain was always going to arrive here at some point, just as Covid-19 arrived everywhere.  We're doing what we can.
