TNC: 'It’s a week of reckoning in British Columbia as hundreds of health-care workers and public employees are now being terminated after being forced onto unpaid leave last year by provincial COVID vaccine mandates.
'The firings in B.C. come even as provinces across Canada continue to drop COVID restrictions, including Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, who announced today that their vaccine passport programs would end this month.
'B.C. is now the only province that has not signalled definitively when any of its vaccine policies will end. The province – which does not allow rapid testing – has among the most stringent vaccine mandates in the country, if not the world.'
