Canada’s unvaccinated travel ban could last two more years

A Government of Canada document from late 2021 indicates that the money to sustain the travel ban on unvaccinated and federal vaccine mandate will continue flowing until 2024.

According to an Economic Fiscal Update released in late 2021, “All travellers now departing from Canadian airports, on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains, or on cruise ships (or non-essential passenger vessels on voyages of 24 hours or more) must be fully vaccinated, with very limited exceptions. ”

“All employers in the federally regulated air, rail and marine transportation sectors must establish vaccination policies that ensure employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” the document continues.

“The government proposes to provide 37.4 million over three years, starting in 2021-2022, to Transport Canada to support the implementation and oversight of this vaccine mandate for federally regulated air, rail, and marine employees and passengers.”

The document continues, boasting that the Trudeau government had “demonstrated leadership” in forcing public servants to disclose their vaccine status and putting all those who refused or couldn’t prove they were fully vaccinated on “administrative leave without pay.”

As noted by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, it appears that Canada is one of the few countries still enforcing a ruthless travel ban on its unvaccinated population.

“We think [the vaccine passport] serves no useful health purpose. They don’t have an alternative, which is a negative test, which might be a reasonable accommodation. But in any event, I think it’s a pointless policy,” Kenney said during a recent Q & A. “And I do not know of any other major country in the world that has a similar policy.”

Indeed, both New Zealand and Australia — infamous for their human rights abuses during the lockdowns — are in the process of ending various travel restrictions for both domestic and international travellers. Unfortunately, though, Australia is further behind than New Zealand and still requires incoming travellers to be fully vaccinated.

The ban is further undermined by Ontario’s COVID data, which shows that the unvaccinated have a per capita infection, hospitalization, and death rate comparable to the fully vaccinated, and by every metric, those who took booster doses are worse off.
Regardless, the Trudeau government has dismissed this science. But then, it was never about the science or health of Canadians. As reported by The Counter Signal, Trudeau justified his federal travel ban on the unvaccinated by citing obligations to the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations, not the science.
