Quebec to ‘Significantly’ Tax Unvaccinated Canadians
Get the jab or pay a tax. That is the simple message the premier of the French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec delivered Tuesday when he warned adults who don't get the coronavirus vaccination they will be hit with a financial penalty. Legault told reporters in Montreal the "health contribution" is necessary because about 10 percent of adult Quebecers aren't vaccinated, but they represent about half of all patients in intensive care. Legault said the amount of the penalty hasn't been decided, but will be "significant."
