Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Canada relents on COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truckers”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Canada will let unvaccinated Canadian truckers cross the border from the U.S., dropping its immunization mandate days before it was set to take effect on Saturday.

But the Canadian government relented on its own truckers after the industry warned of massive disruptions from the rule.

The Canadian Trucking Alliance said about 10% of the 120,000 Canadian truckers who cross the border are unvaccinated.

The Canadian Press reported that companies were not opposed to the mandate itself so much as the timing of it, as the world deals with supply-chain issues and a dearth of workers.
