Where did this information even come from? I hardly doubt a couple ports in one province would sway the reopening of the entire country…I think they had to, Alaskan towns that depend on the summer cruise season leaned hard and got a provision through the US government allowing cruises to not have to go to a foreign port to sail out of Alaska and there was a big fuss from Canada getting concerned this could pave the way for Canada to see less cruise ships than they were getting prior to the pandemic.

And these articles were very interesting, as a long time/ frequent cruiser I had no idea that the Jones Act/PSVA was under review or subject to amendment because of the virus. Then again, I have not been keeping current because I won't be boarding another ship for a long time yet, nope, not me
Nice to see a fellow cruiser, though I am sailing soon (got 2 cruises booked this year actually). It did take a literal act of congress to get it, and I'm glad they did it - the cruise lines got going again and the businesses around the ports that rely heavily on the cruises will get some positive impact.
