The 14 day quarantine did not come into effect from day 1 and dependent where you were flying to there was no quarantine. It was also the same if you flew into the USA and then returned across a land border. Canada can choose what it wants to do to protect its border and citizens much like other countries can.
You started this thread in July so was there quarantine in March, April, May and June??????

I heard this too.
Did they have to pay the fine? $780 I think?

Cheaper than some hotels around Pearson I'd say

From that link..

"If they do not follow the instructions, there are penalties, including a maximum fine of up to $750,000 or imprisonment for six months."

Feels like living in Stalin's USSR

Some did, but it didn’t sound like the authorities were very interested.

I am not certain when quarantine came into effect anymore.

I am pretty certain that it was in place by May and June, though.

The "Alberta option" which I deemed quite reasonable only came about later on, but I am not certain, if that option still exists.

We landed mid May and had to quarantine for 14 days.

Correct

https://www.canada.ca/en/public-heal...ng-canada.htmlApril 14, 2020 Ottawa, ON Public Health Agency of Canada

The Government of Canada's top priority is the health and safety of Canadians. We are taking unprecedented action to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic. This includes continually assessing the risks to adapt our response accordingly.

The Government of Canada's Emergency Order under the Quarantine Act already requires persons entering Canada—whether by air, land or sea —to isolate for 14 days if they have symptoms of COVID-19, or to quarantine themselves for 14 days if they are asymptomatic to limit the spread of COVID-19.
It's suspended

The Alberta COVID-19 Border Testing Pilot Program is currently suspended and no longer accepting new participants. New travel requirements announced by the Government of Canada are now in effect.

I was always hoping they would implement the same process they had in Alberta on all the other airports which are accepting incoming flights.

I was also hoping they would expand this to more than 4 airports.

In the end, I was very wrong about this.

When do these restrictions end? (if ever?) What is the threshold? At some point somethings gotta give.

It's suspended to comply with the Federal Regulations / requirements..

Looking at the chart - it would appear that the numbers are reducing.. so perhaps we're on the way out of this (fingers crossed)
