COVID-19: Trucker convoy protest raises questions on vaccine mandates, restrictions

Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Trucker convoy protest raises questions on vaccine mandates, restrictions” – below is their description.

Convoys of hundreds of truckers left Canadian cities in B.C. and Ontario on Sunday to protest the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for cross-border truckers.

In November 2021, the Trudeau government announced that Canadian truckers crossing into the U.S. would need to be vaccinated or face a 14-day quarantine. The policy took effect last Saturday despite opposition from the trucking industry, which warned it could lead to supply chain issues.

But as Brittany Rosen reports, the protest raises questions about the feasibility of restrictive public health decisions.
