Canada province lifts all Covid restrictions amid protests

Canada’s Saskatchewan province announced Tuesday the lifting of all Covid restrictions including wearing of masks and proof of vaccination for indoor dining — as truckers continued occupying Ottawa with similar demands.

Alberta was expected to soon follow suit — despite some pushback from doctors and nurses — while Quebec announced it would move up the loosening of restrictions.

The premier noted that more than 80 percent of Saskatchewan residents had received two Covid vaccine jabs, and about half got a booster — similar to data for the country as a whole — and that it was now time to treat Covid as endemic.
