CANADA: On Thursday, Ford telephoned supporters letting them know that he is about to scrap the province’s vaccine passport scheme.
One supporter secretly recorded the call (posted below).
Rebelnews.com reports:Ford starts his call by saying he had received “about 250 [messages] as of lunch today” asking him to scrap the passport.
“We’re pulling these passports. We’re going to get back to normal. I can’t get you the exact date, but it’s going to be very soon. I’ll be speaking over the next few days. Friday I’m going to put out a statement. Monday I’ll be giving some dates. And we’re going to move forward.”
The dramatic about-face from Ford comes as thousands of truckers across Canada have engaged in peaceful protests, including blocking the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor.
Removing vaccine mandates and passports is a key demand of truckers. Public opinion has shifted dramatically during the past two weeks, with most Canadians now saying it’s time to end the lockdowns.
