THE NDP said on Monday that seven days after the BC NDP government’s announcement that people in B.C. will soon have to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to participate in specific social and recreational activities, the BC Liberals refuse to take a position on the issue.
Speaking on the Mike Smyth Show on Monday, BC Liberal Public Safety Critic Mike Morris would not say whether his caucus supports proof of vaccine despite being asked the question four times by the radio talk show host. (transcript available here)
The new requirement is designed to drive up vaccination rates. Since the announcement on August 23 that proof of vaccine will be needed to participate in these discretionary activities starting in mid-September, registration for vaccination has increased by 201% over the previous week.
