The rules are in place for everyone's safety. Vaccines are not mandatory, so you have the right to refuse to get vaccinated if you want, but that right comes with consequences like not being able to join large groups.

Vaccination's aren't just for travelling. You used to need to have all your vaccinations up to date just to go to school. They are likely not mandatory now.

The government has the right to say if unvaccinated people can put vaccinated people at risk, to require proof of vaccination and even to make vaccinations manditory based on their duty to protect their citizens. People have a duty to obey the law, even the ones they don't like.  

Equal rights in the Canadian charter: "Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability." The question becomes: "Is it discrimination against the un-vaccinated to exclude them"? Considering the governments duty to protect, I'd say no, but the courts will eventually rule on it.

Ok guys, Covid is not  the topic here, please redirect all Covid talk to it?s thread or I will lock this thread!

LOL, until everyone in Manitoba has equal right to attend a bomber game then this is ALL ABOUT COVID.  But yes please lock the thread and return your head to the sand. Just don't think about how people with medical conditions that don't allow them to get vaccines just lost their civil rights in this province. Please. I wouldn't want to spoil your little happy bubble.

Like I said, this thread is about the home opener, there is a COVID thread, discuss it there, and any more head in sand comments will find you not posting anywhere! This decision was a govt one, not a Bomber one

Cry some more. Seems like that's all you do based on your posts, anyway. You clearly have no idea how immunology or vaccines work.

You want to be a part of public social events like a CFL game? Get the vaccine if you can* and be a responsible member of society.

* and no, whining about "rights" is not a valid reason

99.5% of deaths occurring now from COVID are in unvaccinated people. 

What is weird is the anti-vaxxers are using this as a positive... "See, you can still die if you get a vaccine, so why get it?"

.5% of deaths coming from the 50% of the population that is vaccinated. 

Not a great odds maker, but that's a bet worth taking, no?

You have the right to not take a vaccine.  Does not trump the rights of others not to be exposed to an unvaccinated carrier, or to be denied an ICU bed for a non COVID issue because all the ICU beds are full of unvaccinated patients.

How people forget polio, measles, mumps, etc so quickly... or accept hair regrowth treatments with no scientific research behind them as "safe" and deny vaccines with 3 billion doses administered as "unproven", I will never understand.

Alabama (less than 30% vaccinated) tried putting a vaccine clinic in a courthouse today, hoping to convince people waiting to pay for traffic tickets to take a free vaccine.  They got 2 people... 

They should call it the "Trump vaccine", advertise that Trump has two doses, praise Trump for Warp Speed and gin up his base...

37 new cases of Covid in Manitoba today, with 21 of those in Winnipeg. Winnipeg's TPR went up slightly to 3.1%, and we had one death.

3% more women have been vaccinated then men.

Alberta will be a great place to see the effects of large crowds and no masks. After watch the finals of the Stampede last night. There wasn't a mask in sight and the barn looked pretty full.

"See, you can still die if you get a vaccine, so why get it?"

"You can still die if you wear a seatbelt, so why wear one?"

Anti-vaxxer "logic" is whack, man. On the one hand, they underplay the severity of a novel virus, telling others to not be scared of COVID-19, but then fear getting a vaccine. It's utterly asinine.

It's sickening how many choose to be misinformed about science.

You mean like...liquor stores?

Or drivers license, passport, academic / professional credentials.

I'm waiting to see how they process people at the border as far as determining proof of double vaccinations. There are those on both sides of the border that don't want official documentation.

Put in the words of Spock from Star Trek: The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.

I understand the dilemma facing many that oppose showing vaccination documentation of some sort. It's a tough social issue.

That was put in due to the thefts and assault that were happening. Not the same thing.

This will be my only response to my previous post, I am not trying to stir the pot, I just gave my response and reason.

Thanks
