Short explanation of the story and how it developed:

After discussing with the Globe & Mail on covering the USA/Canada border closure, they agreed coverage from St. Stephen would be ideal. I went down with the hopes of capturing a couple at the border waving or interacting in some way. This was when I met Ann Billingsley.

Resources of the newsroom (money and time) available to complete the story:

Globe & Mail invested in me travelling to St. Stephen, NB from Charlottetown, PEI to over this. On the drive home, it was announced anyone entering into PEI would have to self-isolate.
