The new premier of the Canadian province of Alberta, Danielle Smith, has apologized for the government’s mandating vaccination passports during the coronavirus pandemic, telling the United Conservative Party’s annual conference “we don’t are not QR codes”.

“I believe Alberta Health Services is the source of a lot of the problems we’ve had,” she said.

“They signed some sort of partnership with the World Economic Forum right in the middle of the pandemic; we have to solve this problem. Why the hell do we have anything to do with the World Economic Forum? This must stop.

“Things that come to mind are people who have been arrested as pastors (and) people fined for not wearing a mask,” Smith said. “These are not things for which it is normal to be fined and prosecuted. I will review the range of outstanding fines and seek legal advice on which ones we can waive and grant amnesty. »

Canada had one of the toughest sets of coronavirus policies, which drew national attention after the Trudeau government’s confrontation with truckers who blocked key highways and bridges to protest the restrictions.

In response, the Canadian government pressured tech companies, including funding platform GoFundMe, to block Liberty Truckers from using their services.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invoked the country’s emergency law for the first time in history to quash the protest by truckers, while police arrested leaders of the movement.
