Expired: No
Responses Received: No
Departments: Ministry of Public Safety & Canadian Border Services Agency

WHEREAS during the global pandemic, the hours at the ports of Climax and Monchy were decreased to Monday to Friday, 8 hours per day.

WHEREAS this approach made sense given the situation and the restrictions placed on travel; but North America is now moving forward, and it is time to return the hours of operation to pre-pandemic hours, so we do not restrict travel and economic growth.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Federal Government for, at a minimum, the Ports return to seven day, three hundred and sixty-five day a year service, and return to seasonal hours in summer from June 1st to September 15th of 08:00 to 21:00 hours.
