Canada : Quebec to impose health tax on the unvaccinated
The Canadian province of Quebec will charge a health tax to residents who are not vaccinated against Covid19. Quebec, which has seen the highest number of Covid-related deaths in Canada, is currently struggling with a surge in cases.
Premier François Legault announced the new “contribution” for the unvaccinated on Tuesday, as the province reported 62 new deaths, bringing the total number of people killed by Covid19 in the province to 12,028 which is the most in Canada.
On Tuesday the province reported an increase of 188 patients with Covid19 for a total of 2,742. Of those, 255 are in intensive care.
Behavioural psychologist Simon Bacon believes taxing the unvaccinated isn’t the answer. He says instead the government should look to address their concerns and fears.
