Talking vaccine passports; what about our rights and freedom?
Many Canadian,s according to an IPSO Poll, support vaccine passports. The prime ministerr and the minister of health are talking it up. Here’s a headline from CTV News —
"Hajdu says Canada will come up with 'certification' to allow COVID-clear Canadians to travel again"
And the PM from CTV News
"Vaccine passports 'to be expected', but Canada not ready to set terms yet: Trudeau"
Meanwhile the U.S. Federal Government through its President said they will not get involved with the issue. From that CTV news report: “U.S. President Joe Biden's administration has said that it will not push for mandatory vaccination credentials or a federal vaccine database because of sensitive legal and political issues.”
I don’t think many realize how such efforts violate our basic rights.

I have sent an e-mail to the Minister of Heath in Ottawa opposing such a measure. Her e-mail is email@example.com.
