The worst part about the internet is that it gives a free soapbox to the everyman who cannot make an intelligent contribution so they revert to worthless lies and a thinly veiled political agenda.

The good thing is the ignore button so you leave this reality.
Nice to take out the trash from time to time.
More vitriol and rhetoric from DR1s most unread.

Canada is not banning travel.
They are just making it incredibly difficult.
When we booked in July the only requirement to return to Canada was a PCR test within 72 hours of travel.
When the new variant emerged the socialists then made it mandatory to have a PCR test at the Canadian airport of entry. This is after just having a PCR test within 72 hours.
We had a 1.5 hour connection in Toronto. How the hell are we supposed to land , de-plane , clear customs and get a PCR test in 1.5 hours. The rules just kept changing to the point people starting canceling their flights and the airlines in turn started canceling flights.
Its a joke but whatever....
I don't t think the arrival test is for everyone at this point, it's only for (randomly) selected people. And you're able to to continue to travel to your final destination while awaiting the results.

I read a several stories on the 5G causing problems with aircraft altimeters. From the stories I read it mostly affects older aircraft. The FAA has asked the airlines to give a list of airports in the US that could potentially have the most problems . The cell providers claim that if US aircraft work in Europe where 5G is operating, then why can't it work in the US without causing navigational issues

Both AT&T and Verizon said they could weaken the 5G signal till July so the airlines could provide proof of their concerns.

At this point it's anyone's guess as to what will happen in the next few days

There is a government FAQ page indicating they are currently testing 70-80% of passengers and working on increasing capacity to be able to test 100% in the coming weeks.
