Global National: Jan. 12, 2022 | Quebec's tax for the unvaccinated prompts mixed political reactions

  • Publicado el 11 ene 2022
  • Quebec Premier François Legault's proposed tax for people not vaccinated for COVID-19 is generating reaction right across Canada. While other premiers aren't on board, Mike Le Couteur explains how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau isn't denouncing the idea.

    Meanwhile, the potential fine is already sparking a wide range of reactions beyond the province's borders. From calls to make the tax steep, to concerns of impeding on human rights, Mike Armstrong reports on what everyday Canadians are feeling.

    With Canadian businesses still struggling during the pandemic amid the Omicron variant's rise, the federal government is now giving them more time to repay interest-free loans from the Canada Emergency Business Account (CEBA) program. Abigail Bimman reports on the new deadline and why some business owners say they need more help.

    In the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has sparked more anger after admitting he attended a party during lockdown in 2020. Johnson has apologized, but as Crystal Goomansingh explains, he's being mocked and his job is in jeopardy.

    From major privacy breaches to harmful content driving extremist movements, social media has influenced multiple dangers in the real world. So can the federal government regulate it? Should it? Anne Gaviola looks at the push for Ottawa to do more.

    And a southern Alberta family made the best of the deep freeze temperatures experienced across the Prairies the last few weeks. As Quinn Campbell reports, they built a snow cave mansion.

    Why are Sikhs allowed to ride motorcycles without helmets with a religious exemption, simply because it is too much effort to unwrap their heads and put the helmet underneath, and consequently increase their chances of going to the ER and needing an ICU bed after an accident? No tax penalties for them, no fines for them, no discrimination for them. I wonder why?

      Well obese people are not contagious.
      Drunk are not contagious either.
      The smokers they are paying tax when they buy their cigarettes.
      The unvaccinated, when infected can spread the virus therefore is contributing to the system of Shutting down and the healthcare employees exhaustion.

      I understand why they are doing this.If you are vaccinated because you want this pandemic to end.
      Don't you want others to think about the same thing?

      It is not right to tax people this way.
      But can you think of other ways to convince them otherwise.

      If the unvaccinated really believed in their stubbornness.
      Then they will just pay the fine.
      But knowing they will pay now they have no problem on getting vaccinated.
      So what is their real reason for not getting it in the first place?

      We should Also look at the governments side.
      They have been working for millions of people.
      We only have to worry about ourselves an yet people still want to be babysitted by the government.

      It is not fair on both sides.
      We should stop the blame and just work together.

      @Vaccines Save Lives You very well know that the obese and others with co-morbidities are the largest stain on the hospital system by far, whether they are vaxed or not. Their lack of physical health is often their own doing and they know full well the consequences of their choices. Why would you target just the unvaxed ? Is that because you're on the pharma payroll ?

      @Henry lhd Consumption is but the tax is not. Not everyone who drinks and smokes gets cancer but everyone is taxed at the point of sale. A COVID-19 infection has health consequences as well. An ICU stay is very costly. Plan B is the Singapore approach where you get a bill if you become infected and need hospital care.

      We don't live in a democracy. Rights and freedoms are only for show and only allowed if they don't threaten the profit of the neoliberal capitalists who run the executive, legislative, and judiciary in practice. These branches are only separate on paper. That is why you see these bizarre inconsistencies, like certain demographics being protected, while others are not, and certain laws being upheld, some not, some laws being upheld for certain situations, but not others.

      Male? Get ready to pay more car insurance based on your sex buddy. This is not discrimination it is logic they say. Yet if its another demographic that is "protected" logic will be thrown out the door and they will never be held to the same standards if it goes against the subjective politically correct zeitgeist for example.

    Numbers of cases already starting to go down (using positivity rates), so I expect ICU and the like will be going down soon too. In Ontario, the TOTAL (+ve and -ve tetsing altogether) has only gone up 65 cases - in contrast to the fear mongered number of 343 additional in ICU testing positive.
    Also, case rates among vaccinated are 30% higher than among unvaccinated so this will do nothing to prevent the spread and only has a minor dampening effect on hospitalizations. Unfortunately, we don't know which demographics of unvaccinated are in the ICU and if these people can even be vaccinated at all since they are probably more likely to be on exemptions list given the fact they are in ICU. Let's not forget that hospitalizations are only 1.5x per person higher in unvaccinated in Ontario - a relative rate which seems to have stabilized with Omicron.
    In short, there is no reason to suggest such a tax on moral, practical, legal, or ethical grounds.

      That's what I was saying the other day. If they manage to tax the unvaccinated then it will be worded in a way to say if we don't follow mandates. At which point Vax or no Vax , it won't matter. It'll be, here take this poison, or do as we say, or you be fined. If you don't pay then jail time+lose job. Then it'll morph to something more sinister. It might be slow, but people cant allow this concensus. Because its got nothing to do with the vaccine. Just think, 10 years ago China didn't have a social credit system. Now people with bad credit pay more for using a bus, can't enter certain facilities, etc. And it takes a long time to dig your way out. You lose points for crossing the street on a red. You gain points for following exactly what the party tells you. All it takes is for us to pass a few laws, and some sweeping changes will happen much faster than people think.

    Exposure at work, multiple people with both vaccines tested positive and reported having “a bad cold.” Closed the business. I, unvaccinated, working throughout the entire pandemic have yet to test positive. No symptoms. Yet, I am supposed to pay for the extra strain I am putting on the health care system? I haven’t been to a hospital in a decade.. do I get refunded for those years?

    This is insane.

    To the Canadian Government, the efficacy rates of medicines, are always efficient, given that active ingredients are disclosed per consumer protection applicable to both private and public sectors. As for budget, this is also taxed, eversince and allocations are distributed accordingly to both private and public sectors that reports their respective tax filings, codes, since it is always allocations for them to be budget self sufficient as well and per reports obtained on a yearly basis. Taxes does not increase since inventories in taxation, protection, growth and maintenance of GDP are always upheld and implemented worldwide. Taxes are good, it prevents counterfeit, fake, fraud, as well as laundering in any types of funds, as well as BAIL OUTS, since this is Bribery as well, subsidies are taxes, tax, and all allocations and protection from any uncertain.

    How about open up businesses with limited covid precautions and funnel the business subsidy funds into the dilapidated health care system? The current approach is causing widespread economic suppression, the defaults on the business loans, and unemployment resulting from failing businesses will likely bite the government in the foot come tax time and when reconciling the debt.... Pretty sure a revamped healthcare system with more resources and better pay to incentivize employment would be a cheaper long-term route, while able to cope with the immediate ICU demand?

    It is clear that there are two extremes in the pandemic, the first is selfishly imposing no measures at all, the second is selfishly imposing extreme measures and using force as a first resort instead of as a last. Both validate each other, and hence the centre gets accused of being an enemy both sides. I have said this countless times and I’ll say it once more, yes people should be willing to endure inconveniences to preserve the lives of others. But measures like these are not inconveniences it’s illiberal and disingenuous to minorities.

      @AnubisPatron The adaptive immune system takes a couple days to eliminate a virus it recognizes. It doesn't stop the initial infection. It doesn't matter if immunity is from infection or vaccine. That's just how it works. People are still infected. The death rate increase matches the increased infections in unvaccinated people but not in vaccinated people. The exemption from liability is to encourage the creation of vaccines, and decrease insurance costs to companies so vaccines are affordable. You haven't used your head in many years, except maybe as a paperweight.

      @Ismael Bauman That doesn't make it any more or less effective. Its just not doing what we hoped for. Its not even stifeling the numbers, they've grown relentlessly regardless of vax/unvax populace. Places like Gibraltar with 100% vax rate are still case climbing. Its ineffective trash, it was a cute attempt, but we need an actual vaccine that works like all our previous traditional vaccines.

      @AnubisPatron I have, I did the research, while the immunity from liability is suspect there have been many frivolous lawsuits over the pettiest of things. Just think there without legal immunity there would be tens of thousands of people suing companies just to make money. Also while cases are high yes, death rates are low, finally the vaccines we are using were created with the original version in mind not this offshoot. There are plenty of legitimate criticisms of Big Pharma this is not one of them.

      Although these systems generally aren’t designed to cover injuries related to vaccine administration during public health emergencies, they could quickly be adapted to do so. Changes could be made to policies related to funding, proving injury, and distributing compensation. These systems tend to exist in wealthier countries, but Nepal and Vietnam also have such systems.

      @Stephen Philpitt Don’t Fall for the ‘VAERS Scare’ Tactic. Anti-vaxxers show how a precious vaccine adverse event reporting database can be used to scare the public.

      The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS is being misused by anti-vaxxers to terrify the public. It’s a shame because VAERS plays a vital role in detecting important but rare reactions caused by vaccines. The weaponization of VAERS by anti-vaccine activists serves as a reminder that having access to more information does not always lead to better decisions. Information needs to be correctly interpreted to guide us in the right direction.

      VAERS is an American reporting system to keep track of unfavourable or unintended events that take place after vaccination, like a fever or a rash, and that may (or may not) have been caused by the vaccine.

      -Anti-vaxxers routinely publicize reports from VAERS as if they are proof that a vaccine is causing clear harm

      -On its own, VAERS cannot be used to conclude anything, but it can tip off experts that a particular safety signal might be real and deserves to be further studied." McGill University website.

The two bulls accepted the deal and let the lion eat the white bull. Few weeks later the lion cameback and told the same stroy to the black bull about the brown bull. The black bull accpeted the deal and let the lion eat the brown bull, few weeks later, the lion came for the black bull and told him, sorry I am a lion, I have to eat and now that there is no one else, I am sorry but I have to eat you, after a short silence the black bull turned to the lion and told him, you know what, I was actually eaten the day you ate the white bull.
