True North is reporting that "After laying off a third of its workforce over vaccine mandates and receiving $187.5 million in pandemic bailouts, VIA Rail is now asking the federal government for more taxpayers’ money."
"Last year, the Liberals gave the company $187.5 million in COVID-19 relief as well as for a plan to cover VIA Rail’s deficits. Despite the bailout, the company laid off a third of its workers – totalling 1,016 employees – after the Trudeau government announced a vaccine mandate for federally regulated industries.
The same vaccine mandate applied to unvaccinated travellers, who are now prohibited from boarding domestic or international trains and flights."
Justin Trudeau's mandates have done far more damage than a few protesters blocking a bride. Lift the mandates and the blockade end so all business can return to full strength. The lies have gone on long enough. It's time to end the lies and end the mandates.
Justin Trudeau has done more economic damage to this country than any other person in history.
