Trudeau Faces Backlash for Denying Vaccine Mandates in Canada

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has come under fire on social media for his recent statement that he did not mandate anyone in Canada to receive the COVID-19 vaccine during the pandemic.

In a viral video making rounds on social media, Trudeau admitted to offering incentives for individuals to receive the COVID-19 vaccine without resorting to coercion.

Mandate For Federal Workers, Regulated Truck Drivers

Despite his previous orders mandating vaccines for different groups of Canadians, including federal workers and regulated transportation sectors, the Prime Minister’s recent claim contradicts his stance.

The government’s vaccine mandates for cross-border truck drivers sparked massive protests nationwide known as the “Freedom Convoy.”

Trudeau defended the use of vaccines during a discussion with German President Steinmeier at the University of Ottawa, stating he did so because scientists advised him that “vaccination was going to be the way through this.”

Trudeau’s alleged incentives for vaccination were, as expected, met with skepticism, as many believed coercion and mandates were the only effective means of achieving widespread vaccination.

Backlash and Callback on Social Media

The Chief Nerd on Twitter recently shared a video from more than a year ago, which shows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau endorsing the COVID vaccine mandates. Trudeau faces backlash from Twitter users for denying his pandemic actions.

Justin Trudeau admits vaccine side effects, but also claims unvaccinated people are at higher risk of harm.

The hypocrisy of the politician in question has been exposed by critics who have pointed out his recent claims contradicting his previous support for vaccine mandates.

Liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau faced severe backlash on Twitter for his baseless claims, with many users labeling him a “threat to society” and some responding with “falsehoods.”

In spite of the controversy, Canada’s Trudeau administration still requires certain groups to get vaccines.
