Quebec’s premier will present a bill to halt COVID-19 vaccine protests in front of hospitals and schools.
François Legault told reporters in the National Assembly that he would introduce the proposed legislation in his caucus on Wednesday and again in the provincial legislature on Thursday.
“It doesn’t make sense,” he said, referring to recent anti-vaccination protests.
Quebec’s three main opposition parties said earlier on Wednesday that it was unacceptable that protesters were approaching children in an effort to influence health orders related to the pandemic and against vaccinations.
On Tuesday, education critics of the Liberals said they had drawn up their own bill and sent it to the justice minister.
The three parties say that they are ready to work with the government for early adoption of the law.
Legault said earlier this week that he was ready to use “whatever is necessary” after the bill came in to prevent people from entering hospitals, including school-going students or health care workers.
