Radical left Liberal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos stated that while rapid tests, masking and social distancing are important tools, they won’t ‘end this crisis’ on their own — and as such, forced vaccination will be ‘the only way.’
According to Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, mandatory vaccination for all Canadians is likely to come to Canada in the next months.
His comments follow the introduction of mass vaccination mandates by governments such as Austria and Greece.
Duclos stated at a press conference on Friday that while mandatory vaccination is under the provinces’ jurisdiction, he believes it will happen soon.
When asked about the possibility of mandatory vaccination for all Canadians, Duclos said in French, “I personally think we will get there at some point.”
According to an English translation on CBC, Duclos added: “I see it coming personally. Not now. I don’t think we are there yet. But I think decisions need to be had about mandatory vaccinations because we have to get rid of COVID-19.”
Duclo said currently they are not in talks with the provinces to try to force them in to mandatory vaccination policies, based on his COVID Zero fantasy his “personal understanding of what we see internationally and domestically, and in [his] conversations [with] health ministers over the last few weeks,” the discussion to impose blanket vaccine mandates will start in the coming weeks or months.
Duclos stated that while rapid tests, masking and social distancing are important tools, they won’t “end this crisis” on their own — and as such, forced vaccination will be “the only way.”
