The survey, conducted by the University of Manitoba and Leger for Metropolis North America, found that only 29 percent of American respondents were intimidated about the Canada-US border.

By comparison, 52.2 percent of the 3,714 US participants surveyed said they were very or somewhat concerned about the easing of land travel restrictions between the US and Mexico.


Non-essential land travel has been banned in the US since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Those restrictions, which have since been renewed on a monthly basis, are due to expire on October 21.
