Quebec Just Won The COVID Liberty Violation Award: Supermarket Employees Must Chaperone The Unvaxxed While Shopping

Quebecers headed to IKEA, Wal-Mart, Costco, Canadian Tire and other big retail stores now have to show proof of vaccination and government-issued ID at the door.

The new measure, introduced on Monday, effectively limits people who haven’t received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to purchasing only essential goods — and it’s already frustrating those who have to enforce it.

There is one notable exception in the ministerial decree that was issued Sunday night: people who aren’t fully vaccinated can visit pharmacies inside bigger stores that fall under the new rules. To do so, they’ll have to be accompanied by an employee on their way in and out.

Quebec’s Retail Council says its members had to scramble to move around schedules and to put staff their front doors Monday.
