Trudeau Goes into Protective

Saskatchewan to drop Vaccine Passport/Mandates
One of the biggest goals of the Convoy is that all of the mandates and orders related to COVID-19 be dropped including the controversial Vaccine Passport that many areas in the world have required to travel and enter non-essential businesses.
The truckers and protesters are expected to stay in Ottawa until the mandates are dropped and/or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau resigns.
Saskatchewan announced Saturday, that they are to the dropped the majority of the mandates very soon.
￼￼Scott Moe made this announcement in a message on Twitter in connection with rallies being held across the country against a federal policy that requires truck drivers entering Canada from the United States to be fully vaccinated.
This is the second time within a week that the premier of Saskatchewan has made a public comment about the potential removal of the provincial proof of vaccination policy shortly.
In response to Moe’s comments on Wednesday, Saskatchewan epidemiologist Nazeem Muhajarine said on Thursday he was surprised by this message.
Other COVID-19 restrictions and policies have already been dropped recently.
On Thursday, the Saskatchewan government announced its self-isolation policy was changing for people who test positive to five days regardless of vaccination status. The province has also removed the requirement for residents to self-isolate if they are a close contact.
Saskatchewan’s public health orders, including mandatory masking, proof of vaccination and mandates for government workers, are set to expire on Feb. 28.
British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer hinted at a Friday’s press￼ conference at lifting some restrictions by Family’s Day if British Columbia’s residents continue following the health orders.
