A nationwide vaccine mandate is coming for Canada, according to Karen Sellick. From Sellick at lewrockwell.com:
Here’s what I think is going to happen next in Canada.
- The provinces are going to continue to lift their vaccine mandates, but it has nothing to do with their being convinced of the scientific merits of doing so. Rather, it’s because other countries around the world who will be demanding vaccine passports from visitors will want those passports to be issued by a national, not a provincial government. This is why Ontario, for instance, has postponed the lifting of its vax passport until mid-March, rather than doing it immediately. Ontario is waiting for the new federal vax passport to dovetail with its own, before it goes ahead and lifts it.
- The federal government will implement a universal vaccine mandate for everyone in the country, probably around the middle of March when Ontario’s is set to expire.
- There will be questions asked about whether this is correct within the division of powers sections of Canada’s constitution (section 91 and 92). Trudeau and his cabinet will purport to resolve the issue by sending this reference question to the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC).
