when saskatchewan dropped its vaccine
0:10
passport program on monday colin hall
0:13
wanted to keep asking for proof of
0:14
vaccination at his yoga studio i think
0:17
community transmission right now is too
0:19
high still hall decided he had no choice
0:22
but to nix his plan because when he
0:24
previously imposed his own vaccine
0:26
mandate long before the province
0:28
introduced one he faced a backlash
0:31
essentially bullying and name-calling
0:33
saying
0:34
you will regret this and and um you know
0:37
i i hope your business goes under and
0:40
our front window was smashed by a brick
0:43
and
0:44
i have no idea who did that
0:47
last week alberta also dropped its
0:49
vaccine mandate for businesses but this
0:52
cafe is keeping its requirement for now
0:54
and the manager says the response has
0:56
been positive we have taken a more
0:58
prudent approach it’s just something we
1:01
feel is the right thing to do
1:02
it’s the right thing for our staff it’s
1:04
the right thing for our community and
1:06
our clients seem to be responding
1:09
overwhelmingly favorably to our choices
1:11
but could businesses keeping a vaccine
1:13
mandate face legal challenges
1:15
this lawyer says in general businesses
1:18
can impose the requirement for their
1:20
customers i don’t think it should be a
1:22
problem
1:23
for a business owner to continue to
1:25
require that its customers supply proof
1:28
of vaccination in situations where the
1:31
customers are very close proximity to
1:33
each other
1:34
even so most businesses are choosing to
1:37
drop their vaccine requirement in
1:39
provinces ending their mandates well we
1:41
fully support vaccination and believe
1:42
it’s the only reason we’re in the
1:43
position we’re in we also think we do
1:45
need to return to normal we do look
1:47
forward to welcoming all guests back and
1:49
continuing to provide a safe experience
1:51
and back at the yoga studio colin hall
1:54
takes this consolation at least
1:56
unvaccinated people are likely to avoid
1:58
his business
