Canadian Going Out for Supplies During this Corona Time...

Postby Canadian-Eh » Wed Mar 18, 2020 6:44 pm

Hi all,

Should I be concerned about military and/or police harassment as a Canadian who applied for residency but my status is 'pending'?

I have nothing but a Canadian passport and no other local ID.

The paranoid Peruvian family are telling me to stay home... I'm like ok, I don't mind being catered to and all, but I'm used to hustle and helping out with things.

Going out for supplies, with military/police presence at the grocery stores here, is there seriously a cause for my concern?

Thoughts?

You'd be fine with your passport if you were stopped, if that is the question. But why go out if you don't need to? This virus is spread by people without symptoms... maybe even you or me. Find some ways to help out at home. Make poutine for the family! :D
