Summit News reports that a Canadian man was not arrested after refusing a COVID test at an airport after being arrested several months ago in the same situation.
“Got my bags, we’re gonna go outside and refuse their stupid test and tell everybody to refuse their stupid test,” he said. “They cannot stop you, they cannot force you, you are a citizen, you have rights.”
The man, later identified as anti-mask activist Chris Sky said the police allowed him to leave the airport this time.
“The COVID test is a violation of our charter rights section 6 and a violation of the Emergency Act 14.1 – so I’m going to be declining your test today. If you area citizen, they cannot stop you, they cannot force you, you are a citizen, you have rights,” he said.
Update: If you’re flying back into Canada, you’ll need to show a negative PCR test result before you board the plane – and as of today, you’ll need to take another PCR test when you land. You’ll then have to wait at an approved hotel, at your own expense, for your test results.
