Goldy Hyder welcomes the federal government’s announcement of further steps toward allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada in an interview with Voice of America. He explains what this means for the economy and for bringing a newfound hope in a better days ahead.

“When you think about it, what we have been through as human beings over the last 16-17 months or so is not natural, and what’s natural for people is to interact with each other. To celebrate events, to mourn events, to, you know, meet our customers, to take vacations — all of these things are part of being a human being. And those are the things that we sacrificed for the last 16-17 months.”
