That’s right we are now so infectious that the super polite Canadians are resorting to property destruction to keep us away from them.

Canadian residents are vandalizing cars with US license plates in an attempt to deter American tourists from visiting the country, amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Some Canadian citizens have targeted cars with US license plates in various different ways, including keying vehicles and harassing drivers, after the borders between the two countries closed for tourists on 31 March, according to the New York Times.

They reported that in the four months since the border closed to US tourists only four drivers with American plates have been questioned about why they are entering Canada, and after noticing US cars in their country, some residents took action into their own hands.

However, Canadians with US license plates on their cars have mistakenly been targeted by residents who thought they were in the country illegally, according to CBS News.

Vandalism of cars with US license plates has occurred so frequently over the last few months that John Horgan, premier of British Columbia, has suggested drivers with those plates replace them with Canadian ones.

Mr Horgan asked Canadian residents to “be calm. Be nice” but added: “With respect to those who have offshore plates and are feeling harassed, I would suggest perhaps public transit.

“I would suggest that they get their plates changed. I would suggest that they ride a bike.”

“Ride a bike.” Surely the Canadians know that Americans are so overweight and out of shape that most of us probably could not even bike across the border much less all throughout Canada. 

However if any of us could at least they would know that we are Coronavirus free.

I have to say that I am really embarrassed to be an American right now. 

I mean we really are now considered the dumbest country on the planet due to our incredibly poor response to this pandemic. 

And we honestly cannot really defend ourselves at this point, can we?
