Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denied he forced COVID-19 vaccinations on Canadians, claiming his administration provided “incentives and protections” as encouragement.
“And that’s exactly what they did,” Trudeau said.
While crediting ‘medical experts’ for understanding that vaccination is the key to ending the pandemic, Trudeau claimed the high vaccination rate has resulted in a less deadly pandemic.
The Canadian Prime Minister acknowledged there are still many Canadians who refuse to get vaccinated.
“We have to figure out how to continue to protect those people,” he said.
“My job as prime minister is to keep people alive and keep people safe and keep democracy going whether or not they choose to believe that’s what I’m doing or not.”
Twitter users blasted Trudeau denying he forced vaccinations on Canadians, accusing him of attempting to rewriting history.
Canadian criminal lawyer David Anber tweeted:
“This man is a menace to society and the chief purveyor of ‘misinformation and disinformation.'”
But despite Trudeau’s claims, Canadians suffered horrific consequences for refusing to get vaccinated.
Many unvaccinated Canadians were denied basic services, barred from traveling, and even lost their jobs.
Last year, UK Tory MP Danny Kruger accused Trudeau’s government of being among the “worst offenders” for violating citizens’ rights during the pandemic.
“We are not Canada, New Zealand, or China—places where Governments think they can exterminate COVID by depriving their population of the most basic civil liberties,” Kruger stated.
