Canada’s vaccine mandate is pointless and illiberal

“Mandatory-vaccine legislation has quickly become the norm across Canada. Nearly every province has now introduced a proof-of-vaccination law in some form or another. Despite this, prime minister Justin Trudeau’s ruling Liberal Party apparently doesn’t think the existing legal framework is strict enough. It tried to make compulsory vaccination a wedge issue during the most recent federal elections. And since then it has announced it will implement a new mandatory-vaccine policy by the end of October. … These mandates are a clear infringement on Canadians’ civil liberties. And they reveal the Trudeau government’s disregard for the rights and freedoms of Canadians. Besides, it’s not as if Canadians need any ‘nudging’ to get the vaccine. Canada has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, with 72 per cent of Canadians fully vaccinated.” (10/14/21)
