Leaders must end these draconian restrictions, and instead let every individual make decisions based on our own comfort with risk. It’s rare to see any country move in a less authoritarian direction, but that’s exactly what is happening in the UK. The UK government has announced that they will be scrapping their planned vaccine passport program: “We shouldn’t be doing things for the sake of it” Health Secretary Sajid Javid says a scheme for vaccine passports for entry to nightclubs and large events in England will not be going ahead.” As noted by the Washington Post, there was widespread opposition to the vaccine passport program among political parties: “In England, the vaccine passport plan encountered fierce opposition from across the political spectrum, with lawmakers in Johnson’s Conservative Party calling it a hindrance to businesses and an infringement on civil liberties. The Liberal Democrats also opposed the measure, as did some venues. Labour leaders raised concerns about the plan and called for a testing component to be added.” By contrast, here in Canada, there has been very little opposition from the main parties to similar measures.
