    Quebec unvaxxed tax

    Good for you, Quebec!

    They report a sharp rise in vaxxing since they announced their new taxing.

    2016 XL883L sigpic Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    The tax is a threat, not a reality. No law has yet been passed and no final details have been made public.

    BUT....you are right: politicians understand that inspiring FEAR works!

      Smarter move than my province paying them to be vaccinated, that was nutso. The unvaccinated are causing billions of dollars of damage to the economy and our healthcare system, not much different than the sin tax we put on cigarettes and alcohol for the burden their use puts on society..

        At first I thought this was Quebec being Quebec ..... Trying to pi$$ off the Feds .... But it looks like the Feds don't think it's such a bad idea ..... Austria has a $4,000 fine for not getting vaccinated and if you don't straighten it out in three months they ding you again ..... I kind of like a levie on " stupid " .........

          I wonder what the income breakdown is for the mob
          They are stupid and self aggrandizing so poor? Or millionaires?
          Still can't see it fly constitutionally

            Let's take a look at the alternatives. Forced mandatory vax, economic sanctions (such as this tax) Systems of control that penalize a person by defining them as being part of an undesirable portion of the social structure (And therefore exploitable) or a system of "Social Scoring" that can be used to scrutinize a persons every move therefore placing them in a dynamic of undesirability (voluntary exploitation with the ability to change that)

            Or we can just ignore all that and let it continue to run it's course. One thing is for sure, those who are best equipped to creatively manipulate will come out on top, don't ask me who or what that will be although we should be guaranteed a reason to complain about it.

            I'm selling good clean fresh hay. If you want some that's already passed through the Horse then that comes a little cheaper!

            The best advice you can get on internet motorcycle repair forums comes from posting the wrong answer to your own question.

              I can't either . But lets face it pushing Quebec via the Charter isn't likely to happen . We cheerfully let them pull their religious symbol nonsense ......

                      Austria is considering the same approach -- right now the unvaxxed can't go into any public places -- and some large companies in the US are charging unvaccinated employees more each month for health insurance (much like for smokers). Other companies have told the unvaccinated they will be fired at the end of January.

                        Others have decided it best to tell them to take a hike and opt to retire.

                              There's poll out today that found 25% of Canadians were okay with anti vaxxers going to jail, a bit extreme imo. Maybe if Omicron were as deadly as small pox or ebola I'd be onside with that.

                              I have zero sympathy for anti vaxxers and their moaning about being forced to have "poison" injected into them, it's ludicrous. Having spent nearly two years in and out of the chemo centre with the mrs and witnessing first hand real poison being injected into people was sobering. I'd like to be present when these anitvax/poison nuts refuse their chemo when they come face to face with the cancer reality that will hit 50% of us.

                              Met the wife's oncologist on Friday for an update on her latest CT/PET scans, cancer was in full remission only a tiny spec remained, she still has a number of chemo sessions remaining and one possibly two surgeries but it was a very very good day. Going from stage 4 cancer with 15% survival to nearly full remission lifted an enormous emotional burden from us both. The requirements for wearing a mask and vaccinated is just so petty and childish in comparison to what she and I have gone through for 2 years.
