Bridge City News has been bringing you accounts of travellers who have been forced into detainment after accidentally taking the wrong COVID test when arriving back to Canada.
We spoke with a diabetic man who says he wasn’t accommodated for his specific dietary needs while he had to undergo detainment for four days near the Calgary airport.
Roelof Duinkerken says he had to travel to Holland for his father’s funeral recently, but arrived back in Canada and came to realize he’d taken the wrong COVID-19 test to re-enter the country . He says there was little communication from the people holding him in detainment, and no revision was made to his daily menu.
