The topic of COVID-19 vaccine mandates took centre stage during Monday’s session of question period in Ottawa’s House of Commons amid ongoing anti-mandate demonstrations. Interim Conservative Party Leader Candice Bergen demanded answers on when Canadians could see vaccine mandates and other public health guidelines removed. Meanwhile, Liberal House Leader Mark Holland said the country is “not ready” to strip federal health mandates just yet, in a move to protect those most vulnerable from the pandemic. “We’re all tired. We’re all frustrated. But we have to ask how we can continue to sacrifice to keep those safe around us, to make sure we follow public health measures and do our best to get out of this pandemic keeping as many people safe and alive as possible,” argued Holland. Conservatives disagreed with this take, stating several health authorities have said loosening COVID-19 restrictions might be safe to do, in the video published on Feb 7, 2022, “COVID-19 vaccine mandates take centre state in explosive House of Commons exchange“, below:
This debate at the Canadian House of Commons was no doubt inspired by the Freedom Convoy 2022. Interim Conservative Party Leader Candice Bergen demands that the Canadian federal government quickly remove all federal vaccine mandates since COVID-19 will become part of Canadians’ life, according to scientific expert opinions. But Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, Mark Holland believes that gradual measures should be in place instead.
Canada is facing protests for a second week over vaccines mandates and other covid restrictions. Trucks and periodic demonstrations have jammed up the country’ capital city of Ottawa. A judge on Monday granted a 10-day injunctions saying truckers must pull back on some of their disruptive tactics. Stephanie Sy has the story, in the video published on Feb 7, 2022, “Truckers, demonstrators paralyze Canada’s capital over COVID mandates“, below:
Canadians are frustrated with not just the vaccine mandates, but also the mask mandate, and restrictions on gatherings. The Freedom Convoy 2022 in Canada now involves truckers as well as non-truckers.
The Canadian Freedom Convoy 2022 may be spreading. Dozens of organized Facebook groups with thousands of members popped up last week to support the Canadian truckers around the globe. Some are also planning their own rallies.
