Jason Kenney calls for end to unvaccinated travel restrictions

During a Q&A on Wednesday, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney called for Trudeau to end the absurd travel ban on unvaccinated Canadians.

“Yeah, we have pushed [for an end to vaccine passports]. And I agree with you,” Kenney said, responding to an Albertan that wants the vaccine passport system ended in Canada.

“We did bring in a motion in Alberta’s legislature that the government voted for, the government MLAs, calling on the Trudeau federal Liberal government to drop the remaining travel restrictions, and particularly the vaccine passport.”

Kenney continued, saying the whole policy is pointless and pointing out that there is perhaps no other country on Earth that continues to discriminate against the unvaccinated as much as Canada.

“We think it 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 continued. “And I do not know of any other major country in the world that has a similar policy.”

While Kenney is uncertain why Trudeau appears hellbent on extending his abhorrent and unscientific travel restrictions, there is one clear answer.

As previously reported by The Counter Signal, just before the pandemic kicked off, the Government of Canada, Air Canada, and two major Canadian airports partnered with the World Economic Forum (WEF) on a digital ID pilot project that would see travel restrictions, just like those imposed under the vaccine passport system, brought to Canada.

Moreover, Trudeau didn’t use health science to justify the implementation of vaccine passports: he used the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations.

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.

Of course, Trudeau’s government failed on the “non-discrimination” aspect of the regulations, going above and beyond the call of duty to implement a de facto digital ID for travel.
