Senator Amy Klobuchar, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and two Republican colleagues are asking the Canadian government for parity in COVID testing requirements for fully vaccinated people entering that nation:

Klobuchar and fellow senators say Canada’s requirement that travelers present a negative molecular coronavirus test before arrival may deter individuals from traveling between that country and the U-S.  They say the cost of the test “could discourage tourism and will be prohibitively expensive for individuals who regularly travel across our northern border” and that “the timing of test results will prove challenging to navigate.” Klobuchar and colleagues, however, are commending the Canadian government for “its early and consistent efforts to fully reopen the U.S.-Canada border.”

Canadian health officials said last week they are evaluating the testing requirement.
