Federal health minister Jean-Yves Duclos said population-based vaccine mandates are inevitable, but that it’s the provinces who will have to impose them. Days later, Quebec announced a “healthcare charge” for anyone who doesn’t have three vaccine doses – a policy True North’s Andrew Lawton predicts will only be the beginning.

While Alberta’s and Saskatchewan’s premiers have rejected the idea of a vaccine mandate, the Quebec and New Brunswick premiers haven’t ruled it out, and other provinces’ leaders have said nothing at all.

Also, Ontario Families Coalition founder Bronwen Alsop joins the show to talk about the need to get kids back into the classroom.

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.
