The Midway Tavern in downtown Montreal is conducting a third pilot project Friday evening to test the vaccine passport. Nearly fifty people demonstrated in front of the restaurant-bar to express their opposition to the health proof.
From 1Is In September, if a person wants to access gyms, restaurants and “high traffic public events”, they must be vaccinated with two doses of the vaccine or one dose of Cubaser if they are already infected with the virus. The vaccine passport needs to be valid for at least seven days after injection.
The pilot project at Midway Tavern will run from 5pm to 11pm. It aims to read QR codes and test applications developed by Quebec for this purpose.
“The purpose of our participation is not to stand against the vaccine, but to raise awareness of our expertise and service to our fellow restaurants,” one might read in a Facebook post from the booth. “We believe that our involvement will have a positive impact on the management of new tasks that will inevitably affect the daily life of restaurants,” the company adds in the same message.
Because pilot projects are voluntary in nature, no one is denied access to the restaurant-bar.
Two other pilot projects, two events
The first pilot project took place on August 11 and 12 at the La Cage de Leborgneuf restaurant in Quebec. Several demonstrators demonstrated themselves in front of the company to argue their opposition to the vaccine passport.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the health proof was tested at the Éconofitness gym in the Wimont Sector in Laval. Opponents of the vaccine also expressed their dissatisfaction in the gym parking lot.
