    Nova Scotia Premier Iain Rankin is expected to provide a COVID-19 update on Thursday and will face questions about the blockade at the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick border which formed after the premier announced modified rules for travellers entering from the neighbouring province when the “Atlantic Bubble” reopened Wednesday.

    At least two arrests were made Wednesday at a blockade at the Trans-Canada Highway between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick after RCMP officers moved on protesters. The move came more than 24 hours after protesters, angry at the modified restrictions, first brought traffic to a standstill.

    During a COVID-19 update on Wednesday, New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs called on protesters at a blockade at the border with Nova Scotia to let traffic through and not “lose sight” of their objective: to get through the pandemic.

    Higgs said he was “disappointed” in the blockade, adding that “this isn’t a time to lose control or lose patience or cause disruption to friends and neighbours.”

    The so-called Atlantic Bubble was set to begin Wednesday morning— allowing for travel between the Atlantic provinces. However, Rankin announced Tuesday afternoon that people coming from New Brunswick would still be subject to isolation requirements based on vaccination status and testing. Rankin said the move stemmed from New Brunswick’s decision to open up to Canadians with at least one dose of a vaccine last week.
