WINNIPEG, Manitoba, February 17, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian mother along with her four children and the children’s grandmother were each fined $3,000 and hustled into a government-run COVID quarantine facility after Canadian border agents refused to accept the results of their COVID tests because the results were 2 hours expired.

The mother, who spoke to LifeSiteNews today by phone under condition of anonymity from her designated quarantine facility (DQF) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, said that she, together with her children and the children’s grandmother had traveled to the U.S. from Manitoba earlier this month to attend the 79-year-old grandmother’s medical appointment and to visit family.

Eager to follow the rules of reentry into Canada, the mother, a registered nurse (RNBN) who works in chronic care, went in with her mother and children for the PCR COVID tests on Friday, Feb. 12. The tests all came back negative. They also came with an expiration date of 72 hours set by the Canadian government, meaning that the test would only be valid for 72 hours after taking it.

Five test results came back on Sunday. The last one came back Monday at 1:30 a.m. At 6:30 a.m. that same morning, the mother left for the Canadian border, with 8 hours left before the tests expired. Normally, this would have been more than sufficient time. But then the family’s car started having troubles.

“Three warning lights came on, causing me to drive slower,” the 47-year-old mother said.

The family finally reached the Pembina-Emerson border just after 4:00 p.m. They came prepared with their test results and a quarantine plan for when they returned to their home in Winnipeg. But by the time they reached the customs official, their COVID tests had already expired by 2 hours and 15 minutes.

“I should’ve called the border to say we were going to be late,” said the mother.

You Can Now Be Fined, Jailed, & Assaulted For Not Wearing A Mask In America

Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

Governors proclaim chicken wings are not a meal

The pandemic has made Governors so power hungry that they are now telling restaurants what counts as a meal.

States like California and New York are forcing restaurants and bars to only serve alcohol with meals.

That prompted some establishments to add special menu items so that patrons who just wanted a drink didn’t have to order an entire meal.

But now that tactic has caught the eye of Comrade-Governors Newsom and Cuomo.

They have decided that not only is it within their power to tell restaurants if they are allowed to serve drinks and food, but these Governors also claim the power to dictate what counts as a meal.

The dictator of California officially decreed that buffalo chicken wings are not a meal.

Nor are reheated frozen entrees, “pizza bites (as opposed to a pizza)”, or “any small portion of a dish that may constitute a main course when it is not served in a full portion or when it is intended for sharing in small portions.”

And the dictator of New York said the food available has to be “More than just hors d’oeuvres, chicken wings, you had to have some substantive food. The lowest level of substantive food were sandwiches.”

There you have it, sandwiches are a meal, chicken wings are not. So says the politburo.

A&E loses half its viewers after canceling “Live PD”

Amid calls for police accountability, A&E canceled its reality TV show “Live PD” to try to appease the Twitter mob.

Does this seem counterintuitive to you? It does to me. Following cops around with a camera seems like it would INCREASE police accountability.

But A&E seems to think that if they stop filming the police, then transparency and accountability will improve. In other news, 2+2 = 5.
