COVID-19: Constitutional expert weighs in on Quebec’s health tax | Watch news videos online

Stephane Beaulac, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Montreal, said Tuesday that while the new health tax announced for unvaccinated Quebec adults could be challenged under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms or the Quebec Charter, it could be difficult to be successful. He said this is because while the idea of ​​discrimination is likely to be challenged, vaccination status is not included in discrimination in any of the challenges, so it would be difficult to fight in court on this argument.
