A joint statement released Thursday from Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos, Transport Minister Omar Alghabra and Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said unvaccinated Canadian truck drivers will have to meet pre-entry, arrival and Day 8 testing requirements, as well as quarantine upon entry into Canada. The statement comes after it was reported that the federal government had backtracked on its vaccine mandate and would provide an exemption for Canadian truck drivers.
The Canada Border Services Agency told reporters on Wednesday evening that it would not require unvaccinated Canadian truck drivers to quarantine when they re-enter the country. The mandate would still apply to foreign truck drivers entering into Canada, with the United States preparing to impose similar restrictions on Canadian truckers on Jan. 22.
I'm hoping the provinces can do anything about that?
As far as the truckers go, I get the impression that this move is sort of like trying to bite the hand that feeds you...
