Global National: Jan. 15, 2022 | COVID-19 vaccine mandate takes effect for cross-border truckers

After an apparent government flip-flop and much confusion, tighter rules for truckers are now in effect. Unvaccinated American truckers cannot enter Canada, while unvaccinated Canadian truckers must be tested for COVID-19 and quarantine for two weeks. As Abigail Bimman reports, the changes are likely to impact the supply chain and Canadians’ grocery bills.

  1. Because truckers are in their trucks spreading their stupid truck stuff everywhere! Stop them! We don’t need their truck stuff!
    BTW, bureaucrats do nothing but get in the way of people who actually do things.

  2. теперь добрались и до тракистов(( хорошо в России можно купить сертификат без проблем, если не веришь в чудодейственные свойства вакцины

  3. "We know your grocery stores are half empty and food prices are up 60% since 2019…..but we are going to make it worse for you even though the data clearly shows the vaccine doesn't even work…..because it's for your safety oh and btw heres another tax" Yall must be joking. If I get the jab it's simply going to be so I can get a passport and leave this pathetic excuse of a country.

  4. Our tax dollars are paying for all of this crap. The government has never been as parasitic as it is now. Trudeau, Fauci, Tam all have massive investments and are getting massive returns. This has all been one big money transfer from poor people to rich parasites. They all need to go to jail and their wealth divided among the people.

  5. Vaccines won't stop the spread, we already have the proof. So stop the vaccine mandates and the discrimination against unvaccinated emediately.Stop deviding the people with crazy narratives. Vaccine mandates will not work cause spread will continue even if you have 100% vaccinated . Health experts are saying it's endemic. So let's move on and live free together

  6. A VAX that doesn't work where you have to keep taking boosters…that speaks for itself….but some are so brainwashed. I hope the truckers will be our savings grace and we get rid of these mandates that only serve as a method of travels to all the truckers and I definitely support them!

  7. Revelation 9:20-21 KJV – “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries [hang on to that word, I want to come back to it], nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

    In other words, during the seven-year Tribulation, when the judgment of God, the wrath of God, is poured out on a Christ-rejecting world, we’re told that one-fourth of the population of earth will be killed. One-fourth! Then here, John says of those that were not killed by these plagues, some would still not repent of their “sorceries.” Now, this is an intriguing word.

    In the original language of the Greek New Testament, the word “sorceries” is translated “pharmakeia” from where we get our English word for “pharmacy/pharmaceuticals.” That seems kind of strange….

    Well, let’s look at Revelation 18:23; it might fill in a couple of blanks:
    Revelation 18:23 KJV – “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants [speaking of Babylon] were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries [there this word is again, “pharmakeia”] were all nations deceived.”

    Stop right there. In other words, something to do with pharmaceutical sorcery was a deception because, by this, all the nations were deceived.

  8. Now I know why God is so angry in Revelation 18:23 that he has mystery Babylon thrown down and burned with fire.Her crime is in this verse it says and by your sorcery ( translated from the original Greek Pharmakeia ,English is pharmaceuticals ) ALL the nations were deceived.Vaccines are pharma .Mystery Babylon is the controlling entity that rides the beast ( final 10 nations or zones) world empire.God is going to pour out his wrath in a period of time which we are moving into called the tribulation.It’s a 7 year period,the last 3 1/2 years is called the great tribulation where God judges the earth in vengeance .It’s called the time of his wrath and everyone on the planet will know the games up.What we are seeing is the end times evil manifesting itself in an attempt to take over the world and usher in one world government with a leader the scripture calls the son of perdition .It’s the son of the serpent,the devils seed .Christ will return and completely destroy the work of the evil one at the end of the age but for now the wicked are taking temporary control for a short time

    “and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭18:23‬ ‭

  9. Shut down all trucks, myself included. For one full week. Not only will it destroy the market but the point will hit hard. I'm onboard. We can even do a cross country cruise to seal the point.

  10. "who is more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him?" – Obi Wan Kenobi.

    Sums up people who think the state has their best interests at heart and happily demand more mandates and restrictions of their freedoms for a small illusion of security.

  11. Universal health care does not exist, at least it doesn't for me. I have had a tumor growing in my hip and leg for 15 years and doctors refuse to acknowledge or treat me because one doctor made a mistake in 2008 reading my test results. I am very sad and disheartened by such uncaring and malicious treatment by doctors and radiologists in Hamilton Ontario.

  12. The current vaccines are doing basically nothing in regards to spreading covid. This is pointless.
    In fact the vaccines barely did anything in regards to spread since they were released.
    In fact. How did the new variants come to Canada? I guess it was those unvaccinated people traveling overseas.

    And a tax for not being vaccinated is the stupidest thing ever.
    Even if they want to implement that, then I guess being overweight and many other untaxed things that put a burden on the healthcare systemshould also be taxed. And that will affect almost the entire population

  13. The real crisis is over, so our corrupt and tyrannical government had to fabricate another crisis, so that they can fool the sheeple into thinking that we’re still in some sort of “state of emergency”, which will allow them to continue advancing their agenda.

    It’s so obvious, and yet so pathetic that the normies still get fooled by this 🐎 💩
