Unvaccinated must be ‘accompanied at all times’ while shopping Big Box stores, Canadian health ministry says

By Ailan Evans

Unvaccinated residents of the Canadian province of Quebec must be accompanied while shopping at big box retailers to ensure they only purchase pharmaceutical products, the province’s health ministry announced Sunday.

Quebec instituted a province-wide rule Monday requiring individuals to show proof of vaccination in order to enter department stores, big box retailers and all businesses over 1,500 square meters, except for those whose main activity is the sale of groceries or pharmaceuticals, according to CTV News, citing orders from Quebec’s Health Ministry.

Unvaccinated individuals may only enter large retailers if a pharmacy is located inside the store, and when shopping they must be accompanied at all times, according to Health Ministry. The unvaccinated shopper is not permitted to buy anything other than pharmaceutical products.

“Anyone without a vaccination passport must be accompanied at all times by a store employee and cannot purchase products other than those related to the pharmaceutical service they are receiving,” the health notice reads.

The restrictions follow an announcement on Jan. 11 from Quebec Premier François Legault imposing a tax on unvaccinated citizens.

“Those who refuse to receive their first dose in the coming weeks will have to pay a new health contribution,” Legault said. “I know the situation is tough, but we can get through this together. We need to focus our efforts on two things: Getting the first, second, and third doses of vaccine and reducing our contacts, especially with older people.”

Quebec’s Health Ministry did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    “Early treatment” of Covid is the answer. We all know that. “Segregating society by vaccination status isn’t the answer and smacks of the slow steps taken to marginalize the Jews during the Third Reich until they all had to wear yellow stars, and then worse.”

    Instead of wearing “J” and the star of David, Unvaccinated will be forceably tattooed with “unclean” or Leper !!
    Forbidden to enter public places !!

  2. They must not have any staffing issues up in Canaduh.

    What this really is about is a plan to just shut down businesses and move more shopping online.
    People are not going to go shopping like that- they’ll shop online and the stores will go down the drain- which is likely what they want.. they’ll blather on about how it’s not their fault and demand bail outs..

    How’d ya like that job of accompanying all the very pissed customers?

  3. This is so awful I don’t know what to say. Costco and Walmart are up there going along with all of this corruption. I am never going to their stores again. Our Canadian neighbor’s need our prayers. Safety for the brave truckers protesting in Ottawa and an end to the extreme government overreach that threatens the freedom of all Canadian’s.

    • Ya know Rebecca, I don’t feel a bit sorry for them.
      There is a reason that they say you wind up shooting your way out of socialism.
      They voted this in and now they don’t like what the big government they made is doing to them.
      THIS is why small government is best.

      I hope Vermont is seeing this and getting it.

    Can’t happen in Canada? It is happening. It’s purely a question of how far it’ll be taken and how far the intolerant are willing to go to deny liberties to those with whom they disagree– all for some questionable idea of “the greater good.” This is exactly what happened during the Third Reich.

    • All of this is because the liberal population centers in Canada have all the votes, liberal cities. The rural areas of Canada are conservative but they don’t have a system like the electoral college to even the vote. Secondly, the liberals disarmed Canadians and this is how totalitarian governments steel power from the people. I’m hoping the convoy continues to scare the (you knw what) out of their liberal overlords. Freedom isn’t free as they are finding out up north. Lets make sure we never make that mistake. Reported recently that 5.1 million new firearms owners have been added in the USA in 2021.

      • Hi Dano,
        I agree.. we need to take a page from them and organize our rural areas much better.
        We need to educate them and we need 100% participation rates.. we have got to have this because we have the numbers to overcome in the cities plus the voter fraud that we know goes on.
        It’s up to us all to organize, get out there into the barns and teach the people what is going on and get them in the game..the GOP isn’t going to do that, most of them are on their side anyway. WE have to do this ourselves.
        One thing I’ll say Dano is that Communists are one hell of an organized force..
        They are made to think that way I guess, as Followers.. us freedom lovers are a bit like herding cats.
        We need to fix that though.. I think we can.

        • *edit
          We have got to have this because we have to have the numbers to……..

          TNR we need an edit option here.. you must have very high expectations of our writing abilities?
