N.L. COVID-related travel ban arbitrary, violates mobility rights, courtroom told
Lawyers challenging Newfoundland and Labrador's COVID-19-related travel ban say the policy is arbitrary and violates the mobility rights guaranteed in the charter.
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association and Halifax resident Kim Taylor filed a claim in May alleging the restrictions violate the charter and fall outside the province's jurisdiction.Taylor's lawyer, John Drover, told the St. John's courtroom today a province had never shut its borders to other Canadians before Newfoundland and Labrador did, adding a closer inspection is needed regarding what constitutes mobility rights in Canada.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms states that every citizen has the right to enter, remain in and leave the country, and has the right to move to and take up residence in any province.Rosellen Sullivan, representing the civil liberties association, is arguing the ban is arbitrary because more than 13,000 exemptions to it have already been granted, undermining its public health goals.

Alberta abandons COVID-19 tracking app in favour of federal appThree months after the Alberta government launched its COVID-19 contact tracing app, it's abandoning it in favour of Ottawa’s.

Or do they want to end up like the US? Contact Tracing is essential for our recovery! Thank god! Less than 1% have downloaded the app I see. LMAO
