Foreign policy expert: Canadian border announcement likely in June

KIRO Radio

It has been closed for more than 14 months, but could we see the U.S./Canadian border open in time for summer tourism?

One expert believes it’s likely.

Dr. Laurie Trautman, director of the Border Policy Research Institute at Western Washington University, expects that on June 21 — the end date of the current border extension — we won’t simply see another 30-day extension as has happened every month since the border first closed in March 2020. Instead, she predicts an announcement of coming change, or changes being put into place already.
