Alberta, Ontario rejects vaccine passports

Alberta, Ontario rejects vaccine passports

NORTHERN, ONTARIO ~~~~~~  July 15, 2021  (LSN)  Premier Doug Ford "I’ve never believed in proof," said Ford. "The answer is no. We aren’t going to do it. We aren’t going to have a split society."

Ford also stated that he did not support workplaces requiring proof of vaccination, but said he would allow private companies to make their own decisions on the matter.

 

Today Ford joined Alberta Premier Jason Kenney who said We’ve been very clear from the beginning that we will not facilitate or accept vaccine passports. We also amended the Public Health Act to remove the 110-year-old power allowing Alberta to force people to be inoculated.

According to CDC

  • COVID-19 vaccines reduce the risk of people spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.

What We Are Still Learning

  • How well the vaccines protect people with weakened immune systems, including people who take medicines that suppress the immune system
  • How long COVID-19 vaccines protect people
  • How many people have to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before the population can be considered protected (population immunity)
  • How effective the vaccines are against new variants of the virus that causes COVID-19

By not providing COVID PASSPORTS

  • you will not be ask to show a passport to go to hockey games, concerts or other events
  • nor will you have to provide your passport to go grocery shopping or into other stores 
  • Some people, including some politicians and plenty of people in the media, think that if you can’t show proof of vaccination, then you should be excluded from going to the store, to a restaurant, on a flight, or to a concert. Such a move would, as many business owners and operators have told me, turn them and their staff into the vaccine police.
