The Journal de Montreal reports on plans being prepared by Quebec Prime Minister Francois Legault’s administration which will most likely see proof of vaccination demanded at the cash register.
“Proof of vaccination is already required in Quebec at such non-essential venues as restaurants, theaters, bars, and casinos,” reports RT. “Under the new rule, unvaccinated residents will still be able to access convenience stores, which sell beer and wine, but they’ll be essentially barred from legally buying hard liquor.”
Legault referenced “a certain anger” towards unvaccinated people in justifying the new rules, which will only apply to shoppers but not employees, who don’t have to be vaccinated.
The measures are being introduced despite Quebec’s high rate of vaccination, which stands at around 85% but didn’t stop the province from reporting an average of about 15,000 new COVID infections daily over the past week.
The measures are clearly just another draconian way of punishing the unvaccinated for their refusal to comply and have absolutely nothing to do with fighting the pandemic.
Grocery stores in New Brunswick, Canada were given the power to ban unvaccinated people from entering, meaning the unjabbed could be prevented from conducting the essential activity of buying food.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau previously indicated that the mere existence of unvaccinated people was something that should no longer be tolerated.
“They don’t believe in science/progress and are very often misogynistic and racist….This leads us, as a leader and as a country, to make a choice: Do we tolerate these people?” he said.
What do you think about this measure? Let us know in the comment!
I’m ashamed to be Canadian. Most Canadians don’t want these authoritarian measures which are quite frankly anti-science. Our bigoted prime minister is getting richer each day and his motives don’t appear true. We need a way to reclaim our freedom because we’re not represented by our government
