In spite of the early success recorded by vaccine passports in Europe, the Premier of Ontario, Premier Doug Ford has made it known that Ontario will not be imposing vaccine passports that would provide those properly vaccinated documentation that give allowance for freedoms like increased gatherings and use of closed facilities.
During a recent press conference, Ford said: “The answer is no, we’re not gonna do it. We’re not gonna have a split society.”
He swivelled many other questions like easing border restrictions towards the federal government.
Though Toronto Mayor John Tory and the Toronto Region Board of Trade stated that they believe that some kind of vaccine passport structure would be advantageous, Ford was unyielding in his denial.
Having said that, Ford stated that he would continue to charge every resident of Ontario to get vaccinated, as that would ultimately cancel the need for an Ontario vaccine passport anyways.
He said: “Folks just please go get vaccinated, that’s all I can ask.”
As ontario prepares to enter Step 3, many services and amenities all over the city of Toronto and province will keep opening, but from the look of things, there is a long way to go till normalcy is completely restored.
