Conservative Party leader confirms he’ll work with provinces to create national vaccine passport system
The provinces have a series of systems of proof of vaccination, QR codes, vaccine passports,’ Erin O’Toole said.
COQUITLAM, British Columbia (LifeSiteNews) – The leader of the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) said last week that if elected he will work with the provinces to implement a Canadian COVID-19 vaccine passport system.
“It’s a time for all levels of government to work together, municipal, provincial, federal, to fight COVID-19, to get vaccination levels up to 90 percent. That is our goal,” said CPC leader Erin O’Toole at a news conference last Friday in Coquitlam, British Columbia, to speak about a “fourth wave” of COVID-19 driven by the Delta variant of the virus.
“The provinces have a series of systems of proof of vaccination, QR codes, vaccine passports,” he continued. “We will respect what the provinces are doing, partner with them to make sure that we have that for foreign traveling by Canadians.”
O’Toole said he was “alarmed” by Chief Public Health Officer of Canada’s Dr. Theresa Tam’s latest update on COVID-19. Tam claimed last week that Canada could see up to 15,000 daily cases of COVID-19 within the month.
O’Toole said Tam’s briefings should “resume regularly” and that “we urgently need a path out of this crisis today.”
In speaking with reporters at the press conference, O’Toole said he does not want to “create this us versus them approach,” but urged everyone to get COVID-19 shots, with he said are “safe.”
“This is a time for all of us to come together a time for us to focus not on what is convenient politically, but on what is right,” said O’Toole.
“So channel the frustrations that you may have into helping people find out more about how vaccines can help us turn the corner,” he urged. “They’re safe and effective for use. I encourage them every single day and I think we have to work together to fight COVID-19, not allow ourselves to become divided as the country.”Canadian conservatives, Canadian news, Canadian politics, Conservative Canadians, Conservative Party leader confirms he’ll work with provinces to create national vaccine passport system, conservatives, pipelines, right for Canada
