Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Canadian businesses face abuse over vaccine passports” – below is their description.

Vaccine passports are a reality in most provinces across Canada, and are now required in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec.

But with those mandates now in place, they also continue to encounter anger by some Canadians, and businesses are already bearing the brunt of threats and harassment from people resisting requirements. In one case in Toronto, police arrested two people after anti-vaccine passport protestors tried to storm the city’s biggest shopping centre.

As Jamie Mauracher reports, some establishments say such aggressive behaviour is also pushing other patrons away.

  • In This Story: Vaccine Passports

    The concept of vaccine passports was established following the development of vaccinations for Covid-19, in several jurisdictions. While the schemes differ in precise implementations across the globe, those which do operate focus on identifying vaccinated individuals in order to allow them fewer restrictions, for example travel or access to enclosed spaces.

    These schemes are somewhat controversial, as a minority view them as restricting freedoms; or an expression of “nanny state” or big state interference in ordinary lives. Others, those who are against vaccination, feel they are too forceful a pressure upon people to become vaccinated.
