“I’m a healthy 31-year-old athlete. I’m not going to let Canada tell me what I do and don’t put in my body,” Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto said

Realmuto is one of four players on the Philadelphia Phillies who’s not allowed to enter Canada without being subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

In fact, nearly every time an MLB team comes across the border to face Toronto, a few players cannot come because of their personal health choice.

However, this situation is not limited to foreigners entering just Canada, or baseball for that matter. 

Tennis legend Novak Djokovic — who just won Wimbledon — has faced his own share of travel horror stories.

In January, Djokovic was deported from Australia and denied from playing in the Australian Open because he was unvaccinated.

After he won Wimbledon on Sunday in the UK, where he was permitted to play as a foreigner, Djokovic recalled his Australian nightmare, saying it took a toll on his mental health.

“There were some very ugly insults, provocations, media constantly reminding me about what happened, and it got to me,” he said.

Next month, Djokovic will once again be denied from playing, this time at the US Open, because of the Biden administration’s discriminatory vaccine policy.

If allowed to play, Djokovic would be given a chance to tie the record for most Grand Slam wins ever. He currently sits at 21 Grand Slam titles, one behind all-time leader Rafael Nadal and one ahead of the great Roger Federer.

But Djokovic values the principle of bodily autonomy more than tennis titles.

“Because the principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title – or anything else,” Djokovic said.

There’s no better time for countries like Canada, America, and Australia to ditch their vaccine requirements for foreign travellers, given that vaccine efficacy stats are getting worse by the week.

It’s time to open up completely, but it doesn’t look like Canada, at the very least, will budge.
