The passengers also failed to stay at government-authorized accommodations, as is also required by the country’s government, Canada’s public health agency said Friday.The passengers, who were not identified in a news release, traveled to Toronto two weeks ago and were Canadian citizens, Health Canada spokeswoman Maryse Durette told NBC News. They mark the first case of travelers using fake vaccination documents to enter the country, Durette said.
They were fined nearly $20,000 Canadian dollars, or about $16,000 in U.S. dollars. Durette declined to release other information about them.April 9, 202101:34Nor did Durette say how the fraudulent documents were identified. In March, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation warned of fake vaccine cards circulating on social media sites as headtopics.com
instructions on how to produce them appeared on forumsfrequented by anti-vaxxers and supporters of former President Donald Trump.In some cases, templates were downloaded from state health department websites and users gave specific instructions on how to create them, including what thickness of card stock to use.

Porter says the infrastructure and spending bills will “grow our economy.”
Forget using CDC cards. Demand people show state issued certificates(NY Excelsior card as example). Otherwise demand students get weekly Covid test and pay for it! Lock them up. Should be 200k each. Thank you Canada for showing the U.S. on how it is done. Trumpers aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed. I hate to say it but might be a better idea to keep the border closed until the US has its COVID sh*t together. I can't tell you how hard that is to say out loud. 😢

Florida HBCU doles out $16 million to pay off student debtStudents graduating from Florida A&M University got a big surprise during graduation. The historically Black college spent $16 million to cover student costs. If you’re in need of help financially or you want me to spoil you with my wealth……Drop your cash tag, Apple pay, zelle or PayPal to my Dm and got spoiled immediately.... or WhatsApp: +1(724)292-4342 What about students who had to take out a loan to pay their bill. Do they get debt relief because they were conscientious and didn’t want to leave an unpaid balance? So you acquire the debt but don’t have to pay?
Hahahahaha Stupid rubes Next time should be 100k + total ban from ever flying . RWNJs do stupid things, but fake vax cards take the cake. “Hmm, do I get a free vaccine that actually protects me from serious illness or worse… …or spend my own money on a fake card , stay vulnerable to Covid and risk criminal fraud charges, just to pwn the libs?”
Why the fuck are you providing links in the article to help people print fake vaccination cards, NBC?! Weeks ago…old news… Lock them up!... Lock them up!... Lock them up!!!... 'Nuff said!!!... AVechera Covidiots. Eh, can ya keep 'em for us. Got thousands of them hozers down here too!
2 travelers to Canada who gave false COVID-19 vaccination information each fined almost $20KTwo travelers trying to enter Toronto from the USA were fined after providing false information related to proof of vaccination. Payback is a son of a bitch for silly people. But in Canada, they won't have to pay the fine.
Wow. Going to put my vax card in my deposit drawer at the bank. Yeah I’d just never go back to Canada $16,000 in fines, plus the amount paid for fake vaccination cards and test results… VS. The free as free can be vaccine… The sheer level of idiocy. Make it make sense. These other countries take Covid seriously. We have no right to force our political views, sense of entitlement and disease on them. If you cant abide by their rules stay out of their countries. Bad enough we have to put up with these stupid people
No fly list them as well!! That will teach em. Damn, you get in more trouble for faking a COVID vaccination than you do for breaking into the Capitol. Canada is very strict on entering their country. The US needs to be the same I don’t believe these “fines articles.” Y’all not releasing names or even state how one can even tell if a vaccine card is fake. Scare tactics
Shocking they had to criticize Trump supporters on the article
Soccer-Canada stun U.S. to set up final with SwedenCanada stunned world champions the United States on Monday, handing them a shock 1-0 defeat in the semi-finals of the women's Olympic football tournament to set up a clash with Sweden in Friday's showpiece match. Any US defeat is a good news. It's Canada time!
Just a small clarification: the passengers were Canadians Why even mention Trump or Trump supporters in the article? Or anti-vaxxers? They were only identified as Canadian citizens. continues to gaslight and try to divide. Do better. Odd that someone looked so deeply into it to find out they were fake !!
Is it any surprise that Canadians dislike U.S. citizens? Reminder that you can easily obtain a legitimate vaccine card for free. By getting the shot(s). Good. LOL Good. The only fake test results are the PCR tests used to orchestrate this massive fraud on humanity LOCK THEM UP TOO!
Venice Festival to Recognize COVID Vaccination Certificates from U.S., U.K., Canada, Israel and JapanNew Italian health guidelines are good news for the film fest, but British attendees will still be required to quarantine upon arrival.
Fake don't work. Excellent! smh dirty foreigners always bringing their diseases to better cleaner countries- oh wait /sarcastic Gee, wonder who they voted for in the last election…. Entitled “Patriots” UROCKlive1 Good. Welp. I guess that answers THAT question. 'Play stupid games, win stupid prizes' There is no proof for the existence of virusses at all
Sounds like something my co-worker Ike Okwochuku and his cousin Hushpappi would do.
US women's soccer team loses in Olympic semifinal 1-0 to CanadaThe U.S. team will now play in the third-place game for a chance to win a bronze medal. Oh no! I’m so sad. It’s a sad day
would have been more had they not taken off those stupid red hats Why, just why? Don't prolong the 'WORLDWIDE' pandemic: 1) Wear a double-mask for the foreseeable future or until we're all safely out of the woods. 2) Get vaccinated; it's better to be safe than sorry. 3) And, it's far from being over! But, when it's finally over you'll know. 4) Stay safe.
For what? A fake Coronakillerviruspandemic based on fake PCR's? Covid vax reactions. Go to FB or telegram to Covid Vaccine injuries to see the real numbers. There’s a coverup of number of vax injuries and deaths. Good. Good! Paying 16K for something you could have gotten for free. Priceless Maybe should have presented the new Covid-21 card AKA The Delta Virus Vaccinated
Canada, pretty soon you can build more than one road going through your country just based on our idiot citizens down here.
