    Nova Scotia Premier Iain Rankin responded Wednesday after a group of people set up a blockade at the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border to protest modified self-isolation requirements.

    “We’re asking for a week. I would ask that the protesters think of all Nova Scotians’ best interest in keeping people safe. We need a lot more second doses,” Rankin implored protesters.

    “I think it’s a reasonable plan to just wait for that week.”

    The Atlantic Bubble was supposed to kick off on Wednesday, but Rankin announced Tuesday afternoon that people coming from New Brunswick will have isolation requirements based on their vaccination status and testing.

    Rankin said it was because of New Brunswick’s decision to open their province to the rest of Canada for those who have had one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine, without the need to self-isolate.

    Rankin said he expects New Brunswick to be “back in the bubble” on June 30.
