Quebec Premier François Legault Scraps Plan To Tax The Unvaccinated As Freedom Convoy Protests Grow In Ottawa

Published on

Just weeks after announcing that the unvaccinated would be charged a “health contribution” due to the financial burden they impose on the rest of society, Quebec Premier François Legault has scrapped the plan altogether.

Speculators have reason to believe that the timing of the announcement had to do with the growing freedom protest in Ottawa, but Legault denies his decision has anything to do with the truckers who have descended on the capital city of Ottawa to protest vaccine mandates for cross-border drivers.

“My role is to try to bring Quebecers together to stay united. This is why we won’t go ahead with the health contribution,” he said Tuesday. “I understand that this divides Quebecers and right now we need to build bridges.”

Quebec isn’t the only province dropping it’s Covid-19 restrictions. The premier of Saskatchewan also announced his support for the truckers, called for an end to the federal mandate for cross-border drivers, and said they will soon be ending the proof of vaccination/negative test policy in Saskatchewan.
