Canadian Conservatives Don’t Want Inmates Vaccinated. Advocates Say That Might Be Illegal

Canada’s official opposition party is demanding Justin Trudeau’s government pause its vaccination program for federal prisons, even though it may be against the law, according to advocates. When asked, the Conservative Party has refused to explain its position.

After news broke that the federal government would be reserving 1,200 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for federal inmates earlier this week, Conservative Party leader Erin O’Toole tweeted that “not one criminal should be vaccinated ahead of any vulnerable Canadian or front-line health worker.”
