In order to enter big box stores like Walmart and Costco, residents of Quebec, Can., now have to show proof of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccination” or else be chaperoned around the store by an employee to ensure they only purchase food.
CBC News reports (watch below) that the unvaccinated in Quebec are now restricted to buying only things like milk and bread when they hit up the IKEA food court for instance. All of that Swedish furniture, however, will be off limits to them.
So, if you’re unvaccinated in Quebec and walk into big box store you will need to be accompanied by an employee who will make sure you’re not there to buy socks or a toaster oven.????? pic.twitter.com/zaxEmuFxSB

“Today, big box stores that have a footprint of 1,500 square meters or more are going to have to ask people, customers, to show proof of vaccination,” the CBC reporter explains in the segment.
“Now, pharmacies and grocery will be exempt from this. So, if you’re going into a Costco or a Walmart or something like that, where you might be going in to buy groceries or visit the pharmacy, in that case an employee will have to be with that person as they walk through the store to make sure that they do not go and buy other products or other items that might be in the store.”
Only “essential” goods can be purchased by the unvaccinated, in other words. And the government apparently gets to arbitrarily define what essential means to only include the very basics of life. (Related: Canadian grocery stores are also suffering from supply chain woes.)
“There are several reasons we’re disappointed,” said Patrick Delisle, head of marketing for the Quebec hardware chain Canac. “First of all, we would’ve liked to be treated as an essential service – we’ve been essential since the beginning of the pandemic.”
Health Minister Christian Dubé, however, does not care about Canac’s plight. He would rather punish the unvaccinated and hurt local businesses in an effort to strongarm more people into getting injected.
“We’re not going to ask someone who’s dealing with water damage [in their home] if they’re vaccinated or not,” Delisle added about the lunacy of this new decree. “It’s really frustrating to have to manage clients living in situations like that … it’s not our job.”
In addition to the sheer burden of having to check people’s jab status at the door, not to mention the lost economic activity that results, Canac says that it will cost around $100,000 per week to enforce Dubé’s mandate at its 31 stores throughout the province.
Simon Gagnon, owner of a Sports Experts franchise in Quebec, added that the current labor shortage will make it a “colossal challenge” to keep enough security guards on-site for enforcement purposes, let alone employees to continue running the stores.
“What scares us is that instead of lining up, people will go shop somewhere else,” Gagnon says, noting that Dubé’s mandate creates unfair competition between larger retailers with deep pockets and smaller stores that do not have the means to enforce the new rules.
“We’re just the messenger … it’s not us who decided to do it,” Delisle says. “We’re getting a lot of messages from people on social media pouring their hearts out – to put it politely.”
The construction industry, which had hoped for an exemption, is also suffering from a lack of workers due to their having to be injected in order to receive a paycheck.
