Trudeau Mandates Vax For Air And Rail Passengers

The Toronto Star reports:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday detailed his government’s plan to require full vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition of travel, announcing that by Oct. 30, anyone eligible for a vaccine who is flying out of a Canadian airport or taking a Via Rail or Rocky Mountaineer train must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

The new rules also apply to cruise ships, which are permitted to re-enter Canadian waters as of Nov. 1.

“If you haven’t gotten your shots yet but want to travel this winter, let’s be clear: there will only be a few extremely narrow exceptions, like a valid medical condition,” Trudeau said during a news conference. “For the vast, vast majority of people, the rules are very simple to travel. You’ve got to be vaccinated.”
