I hope these poor people weren't migrants trying to find a way into Canada after Roxham Road was closed.

The child had a Canadian passport, I'd imagine not but idk, very tragic though. Yikes.

The article isn’t super clear but the boat was spotted in the search for a missing boater who launched from Cornwall Island in Canada. I think this is the same missing boat but not totally sure. Apparently the child had a Canadian passport which is kinda weird to have on you randomly imo unless they lived in the res which straddles the boarder so people regularly travel back and forth.

Why would anyone want to leave Canada for the US?


zuuzuu t1_jefs4jm wrote

Possibly not eligible to immigrate to Canada (or legally in the US). Might have family supports in the US that can help them but none in Canada.

No, they're still looking for the missing boater. This was a different boat they found overturned.

>They are believed to be an Indian family and a Romanian family who were attempting to cross into the U.S. from Canada illegally, according to police.

Probably the little boy was born in Canada (birth tourism is a thing) but the rest of the family weren't eligible for immigration in any of the legal ways, so they tried going to the US.

St-Laurent is a hard river to navigate there's easier way to get in. From the article ot seem they were already looking for people that were reported missing by their families. Edit: just read an article from a local paper abd it's believe that they were in fact trying to reach the US.

They were trying to enter the USA according to recent updates. There have been other similar incidents in the past where families have died trying to cross into the USA from Canada due such as that one incident in Manitoba.

Spend my summers at Chippewa bay. It's a great river, it's a dangerous river.
