Well this was expected.
I remember reading a similar story about a businesses in new york city losing nearly 30% drop in customers after the passports had being announced.

Its interesting how in the story they mention its just not the unvaxed that arent coming its the vaxed as well. Its good to see even the vaxed getting fed up with this.

Whats worse with the vaccine passport you will have to be checked every day and every week. At this some point the buck will break.


Quebec businesses see drop in customers as grace period for vaccine passport expires

A drop in 50% businesses is huge drop in profits for a businesses. I dont think it would be possible to gain that number back by winter.



Business is down between 40 and 50 per cent, said Christiane St-Maurice, manager of the Quilles G Plus Rose Bowl on St-Jacques St.



Very nice of them to kick out their customers. And one of their regulars.


One unvaccinated employee quit and two regular customers were booted out of their bowling league because they weren’t vaccinated against COVID-19, St-Maurice said.


A number of businesses arent following it. Because they fear losing more customers and vaxed as well.



Although her business is complying with the new rule, St-Maurice said she has spoken to several restaurant owners who say they won’t ask customers for their QR code.





“They said they were closed for so long and they don’t want to lose more business,” she said.





Although he decided to get the jab, Wolf said he knows many people his age who are refusing to get vaccinated for ethical reasons. “They’re not COVID deniers, but are concerned about (how much) control the government has,” he said.

If lockdowns and covid restrictions haven't fully killed off most of the jobs,gym's, restaurants. Than i do i think these vax passports are likely going to cause a lot more problems not just for the industry but for the economy.

The social fallout will be of epic proportions.

When people are discriminated like that, being kicked and locked out of leagues, shops they kind of tend to remember that. How they got excluded because of a medical reason. Shunned. Declared 2nd grade citizen by friends (friends??) and the rest of the world.

There will be social consequences to behavior like this, no doubt.

When you can't get a cake at a bakery because you are gay, well, that kinda makes you feel like a second class citizen too.

Maybe we should reevaluate our attitude about business and who should be served?

Two days ago there was an article saying it was the antivaxxed that caused the drop in customers, but in reality, it only shows that most of the vaxxed are scared, and didn't go to restaurants prior to the passport.

Even vaxxed people were screaming at that article.

And I would say the restaurants have now more an about 30% of customers still going to restaurants, and many will close it to concentrate on pick-ups and deliveries as it is less and less viable.

Lot of undeclared jobs have appeared, so no taxes for the abusive government of Québec from them.

As a side note, on October 15th we will loose about 20 000 people working in the health industry due to forced vaccination mandate by the government.
Seeing that, the government DID write the amendment to force the jab, but didn't publish it as of yet, because they will be stuck with their foot in the mouth.
If the goverment forces this, the health system inQuébec will be gone for good.

Isn't being a queer o sexual a protected characteristic?Last I heard being injected with the toxic sludge isn't.
Totally different.
Have you always been a totalitarian fascist or did this start with Covid 19?
All so out and proud aren't we?
Beware that the worm will turn and that won't be good for you.

I missed the part where the government said you weren't allowed as a bakery to bake cakes for gays like the government is saying that businesses can't admit the unvaxxed ... even if they want to. There is a tiny little difference there that makes your so-called clever comparison apples v oranges.

Oh, it is, and it was never that they couldn't get a cake there. And it wasn't even that they couldn't get a general, pre-made wedding cake. It was always that the baker would not do a custom wedding cake for a gay union, much like the same baker would not do custom Halloween cakes, because he saw that as a violation of his personal religious beliefs as an endorsement of something he believed to be against those beliefs.

That's not a civil rights thing. That's a gay people forcing their values on others thing.

It doesn't matter to the fiends in charge. This is a generational battle for control and power with them. One month, six months, five years is nothing to them.

That's when they declare that "capitalism" has failed and that the government needs to take it over in order to "save" it.

You do know quite a few of the unvaxxed/refuse to get stuck are gay/lesbian?

Sieg Heil.

My entire New York family is vaccinated. A few weeks ago we where having our routine big Italian family dinner at my grandmothers house and the topic came up about planing a trip into the city. It was shot down by almost everyone because no one wants to feel like a criminal having to show their papers to get into restaurants and bars.

Why would anyone subject themselves to such draconian measures when they don't have too?
