In a letter written to the Prime Minister of Canada, Premier Ford and health Minister Christine Elliott, Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette adds his voice to the growing number of leaders calling for a vaccination passport.
“As the Chair of Halton Hills’ Economic Support and Recovery Task Force, I recognize the need to support businesses and to this end, we have been rolling out our Economic Recovery and Resiliency Plan to help local businesses stay open amidst trying times. No one can deny that small businesses took the brunt of lockdowns and restrictions. They made huge sacrifices to do their part to help fight COVID-19. I believe that a vaccination passport would provide some certainty and assurance for business owners and consumers; that this next step in managing the impacts of the world-wide pandemic is a necessary one as we continue to battle new and emerging virus variants.”
Municipalities across the Province and organizations such as the Ontario Chamber of Commerce have issued similar correspondence to Federal and Provincial leaders asking for a vaccination passport.
