Each week, officials at the Elysée and in the prime minister’s office anxiously waited for the figures on the size of the protests to roll in. Now, as the country approaches its target of giving 50 million people at least one jab by the end of August, many of those officials are heaving a sigh of relief. “We are patting ourselves on the back, though we know we have not yet reached results that are completely satisfactory,” said one government adviser. "Macron took a firm decision, and the French gave him their vote of confidence. The protests have remained marginal.”
“It saved tens of thousands of lives,” said Martin Blachier, a public health consultant. “The French were reluctant [to get the jab] and he crafted a message that was heard. It was the best moment of his handling of the crisis, maybe even of his tenure.”
And that’s the point. Proponents say the health pass has worked because people reacted by getting vaccinated, which protects them from developing serious conditions even if they do get the virus.
The COVID immunity pass — a digital or paper certificate that contains proof of vaccination, of immunity, or of a negative test — is needed to get into cafés, bars, restaurants, hospitals, museums, galleries, and on trains, planes and coaches. On Monday, the scheme was extended to the employees of all venues that are open to the public.
However, Moscow this week had to drop its ban on people entering cafes, restaurants and bars without a health pass after owners complained it was killing business.

In Crazy Canada JT and Liberals removed the option of the test. I do hope to see a pushback of some kind this is going to hurt businesses a lot.
Here's what most "normies don't understand:
The people pushing this agenda, they ain't like us. They don't reason like us. They don't have the same values, care about the same things. They are what is know as existential nihilists.
Existential nihilism is the philosophical theory that life has no intrinsic meaning or value. With respect to the universe, existential nihilism suggests that a single human or even the entire human species is insignificant, without purpose and unlikely to change in the totality of existence. According to the theory, each individual is an isolated being born into the universe, barred from knowing 'why'. The inherent meaninglessness of life is largely explored in the philosophical school of existentialism, where one can potentially create their own subjective 'meaning' or 'purpose'. Of all types of nihilism, existential nihilism has received the most literary and philosophical attention.
