Justin Trudeau has decided that unvaccinated Ukrainians deserve better treatment than Canadians and that the federal travel ban shouldn’t apply to them.
According to the Government of Canada’s Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel web page, “Ukrainians and their family members coming to Canada from overseas — are exempt from Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination entry requirements, but must meet all other public health requirements for travel, such as quarantine and testing.”
And just in case this wasn’t clear as day, the government further states that unvaccinated Ukrainians and their family members who acquire or already have temporary status in Canada “may apply to extend their temporary resident status for up to 3 years” and “can leave and return to Canada at any time while their visa is valid.”
“Family member” also includes a spouse or common-law partner. So, if you’re an unvaccinated Canadian looking to flee your country after years of brutal lockdowns and segregation, don’t worry! All you have to do is marry a Ukrainian or date one while cohabitating for a year.
Of course, this extremely discriminatory decision shouldn’t be too shocking. After all, Trudeau isn’t shy about expressing his contempt for non-compliant Canadians, having called them misogynists and racists for refusing the vaccine.
He’s also shown favouritism in Ukraine, having recently appeared completely maskless during his trip to the mostly unvaccinated foreign nation, even though he still wears one in Canada and forces Canadians to wear one while travelling.
