On Saturday, January 15, 2022, truck drivers and other essential workers were no longer exempt from a two-week quarantine for unvaccinated travelers crossing Canada’s borders. The Canadian Trucking Alliance estimates that the mandates would impact 26,000 of the 160,000 drivers in Canada and the United States who regularly cross the US-Canada border, since 85% of the 120,000 Canadian truck drivers are already vaccinated against COVID-19.
The trucker’s protest calls for the end to vaccine mandates in Canada during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Freedom Convoy’s spokesperson Ben Dichter stated on Fox News that “We want to get rid of the vaccine mandates and the (vaccine) passports. And that passport, that’s the really concerning one”
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce supports vaccination but called for extending the deadline for enacting the vaccine mandate.
The Canadian Manufacturing Coalition supports lifting the mandate immediately.
The exemption’s expiration has been criticized by some politicians and truckers for having the potential to exacerbate the supply chain disruptions already experienced in Canada.
