It appears that PM Justin Trudeau’s travel ban on the unvaccinated has more to do with compliance with international regulations than following the science.
In fact, a Government of Canada report published in May 2021 confirms this is the case.
“Canada’s border measures are informed by obligations under the International Health Regulations (IHR). The IHR is an instrument of international law that is legally binding on 196 countries to limit the spread of health risks while preventing unwarranted travel and trade restrictions. Recognizing the IHR, Canada cannot impose health-related travel restrictions except in situations of public health emergencies (such as COVID-19). When doing so, Canada must recognize the rights of travellers concerning treatment of personal data, informed consent and non-discrimination,” the report reads.
Well, they’ve certainly failed on the “non-discrimination” aspect while abiding by the regulation.
The regulations in question are the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations (IHR), established in 2005 following the 2003 SARS outbreak. Of course, Canada, as a member state, signed on to be legally bound by the international organization’s rules, as did several other countries.
While many restrictions in Canada have been dropped or lessened, the discriminatory federal travel ban against unvaccinated Canadians remains in place. This ban prevents unvaccinated Canadians from boarding a plane, train, or marine vessel that is not privately owned and has undoubtedly been why many Canadians fled the country in 2021.
At the time, Trudeau argued that the science regarding vaccine efficacy more than justified the ban on unvaccinated trying to leave the country, as he believed they were more likely to contract the virus and transmit it when returning from abroad.
This science has not been borne out.
In Ontario, as of April 5, those with a COVID booster dose have the highest case numbers per capita (22.35 cases per capita), while the fully vaccinated have 15.47 cases per capita, and partially vaccinated or unvaccinated have 12.75 cases per capita.
Additionally, the boosted also have a higher COVID-related death rate at 0.03 deaths per capita, while the fully vaccinated and unvaccinated have a death rate of 0.02 per capita.
These figures are all extremely low, but it shows that there’s little difference between whether you’ve received the COVID vaccine or not and that the unvaccinated might be better off. And yet, the travel ban remains in place.
Moreover, the WHO recommended that travel bans be eased or lifted altogether in January, stating that “they do not provide added value and continue to contribute to the economic and social stress experienced.”
Nonetheless, Trudeau has continued to go above and beyond his minimum obligations to his globalist overseers — even if his policy is unscientific and morally abhorrent.
