“We think that in the coming days, we will remove the barriers between Quebec and Ontario,” said Mr. Legault, answering questions from journalists on the sidelines of an announcement on culture on Thursday.
Ontario, which was hit hard by variants during the third wave, made the decision to close its border with Quebec and Manitoba on April 19.
The executive order passed by Doug Ford’s government was originally scheduled to be revoked on June 2, but the shutdown was extended until June 16.
At a time when Quebecers are preparing their vacation plans, discussions are also continuing between the provinces and the federal government, concerning the border with the United States.
“As for the United States, we are discussing with the federal government so that we allow people who have had two doses to be able to cross the border without quarantine,” confirmed Mr. Legault.
