Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said it is up to provincial governments to decide if they want to issue vaccine passports for things like interprovincial travel and accessing services. The governments of Manitoba and Quebec have already committed to vaccine passports, while Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has said in no uncertain terms Alberta will not issue or accept vaccine passports.

True North’s Andrew Lawton says vaccine passports are a violation of individual choice and of privacy rights, and that provinces should govern accordingly.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
