QUEBEC, May 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In what could be a first step towards the implementation of COVID-19 “vaccine passports” in Canada, the province of Quebec said that starting next week, it will send “electronic proof” in the form of a QR code to those who have had a COVID-19 jab.
In an announcement Thursday, Quebec’s Health Minister Christian Dubé said that those who have had one dose of a COVID-19 shot or booked an appointment for one, starting on May 13, will be given a QR code as “proof of vaccination.”
“I must talk to you about vaccine proof,” said Dubé, as translated into English from French. “As promised, I’m following up with the proof of vaccination, electronic proof of vaccination, and it will be actually a QR code that will be supplied by email to Quebecers.”
Dubé said that people will “gradually” receive the QR code via email, adding that “the important thing is that now we have a tool, and as soon as we are ready to deploy it, we will have it ready.”
A QR code is a form of a barcode which links to information and was invented 1994. It is widely used for a variety of applications.
Canadian pro-life and pro-family advocate Mattea Merta took to Twitter regarding Dubé’s comments, writing, “Canada, we have a problem,” with a link to a video of Dubé’s comments on the QR code.
“This seems like a first step to a sort of health/social credit system”
In an exclusive, LifeSiteNews reported that the Canadian province of Manitoba may be looking into creating a type of COVID-19 vaccine record card enabled by QR code, which could be used as a sort of digital “vaccine passport,” according to a source who works with the government.
In an interview with LifeSiteNews, a source within Manitoba Shared Health’s IT department spoke on the condition of anonymity about new QR code capabilities being developed for COVID-19 vaccine cards.
The source said that information he has seen appears to show the new type of computer program using QR code technology dubbed “Vaxcard.”
LifeSiteNews asked the same source about the Quebec QR code announcement.
He told LifeSiteNews that it “certainly is interesting” that the Quebec government made the announcement at this time, but he is not sure if there is a connection to Manitoba’s coming QR code.
“As of right now there doesn’t seem to be any indication that the system they’re using will have any relation to ours, but I wouldn’t be surprised if all the provinces eventually started collaborating in sharing the data from these systems and having it be accessible through their own somehow, as that seems like a logical next step to me,” said the source.
“This seems like a first step to a sort of health/social credit system; let’s hope we can be rid of these systems before they start being widely used.”
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

At the federal level, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently said his government is “right now” working on “certificates of vaccination” for travel with its allies, saying they are to be “expected.”
Jay Cameron, a lawyer with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), told LifeSiteNews that any introduction of a “vaccine passport” in Canada would violate one’s rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
