Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has dissolved the parliament and called a snap election, gambling that voters will reward his handing of the coronavirus pandemic with a parliamentary majority as he pulls the plug on a two-year minority government.
Justin Trudeau launched Canadians into an election campaign Sunday that on the surface gives voters a choice between competing visions for a post-pandemic Canada.
But Trudeau also used his Day 1 words to shape the campaign’s subtext. Canada’s election, the Liberal leader suggested, could hinge on the philosophical clash between the vaccinated and the vaccine reluctant, reported Politico.
“We chose to make sure that federal public servants and everyone boarding a train or a plane be vaccinated. Not everyone agrees. Not every political party agrees,” Trudeau told reporters outside the front doors of Rideau Hall, where Governor General Mary Simon accepted his request to dissolve Parliament.
Conservative David Yurdiga, first elected to the House of Commons in 2014, made national headlines late last week for his criticism of the Trudeau government’s plan to make vaccinations compulsory for federally regulated workers.
“Mandating the vaccine as a requirement to work would be the beginning of a slippery slope,” Yurdiga said in a statement quoted by many media outlets.
“It is our job to stand up against this tyrannical idea that forces discrimination based on what Canadians choose to do with their bodies.”
Meanwhile, a legal group in Canada has sued the federal Canadian government against the COVID-19 travel rule which is being used to quarantine citizens forcefully at secret locations.
Recently, the Canadian parliament erupted over a heated debate regarding the cover-up of Chinese spies stealing coronavirus from the Winnipeg based BSL-4 lab to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
