Justice Centre Statement on the suspension of vaccine travel mandates

The reported intention of the federal government to suspend vaccine mandates is long overdue, but nevertheless welcome news to millions of Canadians who have been discriminated against on the basis of their personal medical decisions, and barred from air travel and trains and ships. The rescission of these discriminatory and unjustifiable mandates needs to be permanent.

The Justice Centre will continue to advance litigation against the mandates and their unjustifiable infringement of Canadians’ civil liberties. We must continue to ensure that a court decision is obtained to prevent mobility rights from being restricted in future.
