negative attitudes of some passengers have made it hard for airlines and crews to enforce the mask mandate in recent months, and cited that as a factor in the decision.

Stand your ground, hold the line.

It works.

Bullies always back down if stand up to them.

Flew many times during the pandemic and didn’t contract the virus at all.

I did wipe down many filthy airplane seats though!

“We are able to do this because tens of millions of Canadians rolled up their sleeves and got vaccinated,” Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said.

how so when vaccinations dont prevent one from getting COVID?

Masks dont either, so at least they are finally changing the policy to reflect such.

The fully vaccinated CEO of Pfizer is sick in bed with Covid-19 right now. This is common sense. Masks only work if they are the right quality and worn properly. Over 20% of infections are through the eyes and 3-5% through the ears.

airplanes have some of cleanest, well filtered air on planet earth.

I just hope the law suits go to their full fruition against the Government who ordered this madness, in lieu of zero advice from any Health Experts. Good news for the people who like to keep their bodily autonomy and meet friends and family if in Canada.

Removal of the vaccine mandate for non-citizens entering Canada means unvaccinated professional athletes like Major League Baseball players would be allowed to play in Toronto in the playoffs should the Blue Jays make the postseason.

It would also apply to the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League. Unvaccinated players are currently not allowed to cross the border into Canada.

I can't believe they are doing this right before the playoffs and at the start of the NHL season! It provides a small advantage to the Canadian home teams!
