LOL. I keep asking myself the last question, but then I'm just an import.

The religious exemption was for the child care benefit/family tax benefit. Not allowed any longer.

Let's just say it was a different vibe here 5+ years ago (and three Prime Minsters ago, LOL). Like I mentioned elsewhere, good thing we have options.

I'm fortunate in a sense that if mandatory vaccination comes to pass, my family can just move back to our home country. The majority do not have that option.
