Public Safety Minister Bill Blair says an American billionaire was mistakenly permitted to enter Canada without following the 14-day quarantine rule because of a decision by the Canada Border Services Agency.

"No special entry exemptions were provided to Uline executives, nor were any National Interest Exemptions. This was not a political decision," Blair said on Twitter Thursday.

"A decision was made by officers based on the information provided. Entry should not have been permitted."
