I think this sucks. The pandemic has been going for over 2 years....why all of a sudden this. These guys/girls spend 16+ hours a day alone in there trucks. They drop there load and head home for another. Keeping our shelves full. Why 2+ years in do they do this. It makes no sense, omicron or not, it still doesn't make sense. I say leave them alone. They aren't doing anyone any harm. If they were gonna do this it shoulda been at the start of the pandemic, not now.
Other countries are opening up...no, not Canada. They are closing down even harder by doing this. Hurting not only the truckers but everyone else along with them. I honestly don't see a point to this. It's just hogwash. It's not gonna do anything but hurt people. Over the course of the pandemic, how many times you heard news stories about truckers giving people covid....none.
Hundreds of truckers headed to Ottawa in 'Freedom Rally' convoy against vaccine mandate
Hundreds of truckers set off from British Columbia to Ottawa on Sunday to protest a federal vaccine mandate despite the urging of the country's largest trucking federation to comply.
The protest has been dubbed the "Freedom Rally" against the federal mandate for cross-border truckers, which went into effect on Jan. 15.
Canadian truck drivers now need to be fully vaccinated if they want to avoid a two-week quarantine and pre-arrival molecular test for COVID-19 before crossing into Canada.
The Canadian Trucking Alliance and the American Trucking Associations say up to 26,000 of the 160,000 drivers who make regular trips across the Canada-U.S. border are likely to be sidelined as a result of the vaccine mandate.
