    I don't like the idea of a tax on the unvaccinated.

    Why not? It's the correct thing to do. Canada is more advance and
    right thinking than we are and we should strive to be more like
    Canada. Praise Canada!!!
    Right on!
    Force is only appropriate when force is initiated.
    In a free country, vaccination should be a personal decision.
    Obviously, it is the correct decision, especially in the case
    of the Covid vaccines, which have been tested and
    shown to be effective at keeping more people out of
    hospitals and out of coffins. I'd much rather see the antivaxer
    quarantined and not allowed out in public as it is clear they care
    nothing for their neighbors and are a threat to public

    The best ideas SHOULD win, but they don't always.

    get a free case of beer for getting a shot , yay , now that's canadian

    A sixpack should do it for many antivaxxers.

    instead of buying liquor , i buy nyquill
    cause it's 80 proof just like liquor , but
    nyquill makes me feel squzzier and i like that
