Legault’s plan, however, is markedly different in that rather than simply limiting the activities of the unvaccinated it imposes a financial penalty on them no matter where they are or go in their daily lives. It’s a “fine” as much as a “tax.” And whatever you call it, legal scholars are already warning Legault’s plan could violate the Canada Health Act because it would require some people to pay a special fee to access the public health system. They point out that Canada currently does not penalize people for declining a certain medical treatment even if that results in a cost on the rest of society. And they say it shouldn’t start now.
A different alarm is being sounded by the Canadian Civil Liberties Association. It says Legault’s tax could violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ guarantee of security of the person, which gives individuals autonomy over their bodies and medical decisions. The association is also worried by the possibility — remote though it might seem — that unvaccinated people who don’t pay the tax could be jailed.
This article seems to suggest it's against it, but I am not sure if I can trust the author of that article. Is it really against the law or not?
