Poilievre asks Biden to lift travel ban on unvaccinated Canadians

Poilievre spoke to reporters on Friday afternoon in Ottawa in the Foyer, shortly after meeting President Biden for the first time.

“I encouraged President Biden to remove vaccine mandates on Canadians crossing into the United States,” he said.
“The US government no longer requires vaccination for its own citizens to cross the border. Canada allows Americans who are unvaccinated to come here.”

“There are millions of good, decent, honourable people who through a personal medical decision are discriminated against at the border and I encouraged the president to lift those restrictions to allow them freedom of mobility to allow them across our southern border,” he added. 

Poilievre was asked how Biden responded to his request to which he said “excellent response.”

“He was very receptive. He wants to be a good friend and neighbour to Canada.” 

Poilievre further took a shot at Trudeau, suggesting that the Prime Minister doesn’t care about unvaccinated Canadians so he never bothered to ask. 

According to the most recent update by Health Canada, just 22% of Canadians have received a vaccine in the last six months, suggesting that most Canadians are not “up-to-date” vaccinated.
