I'd like to quote one of your officials in court documents that were reported on by Rupa Subramanya. One of those officials is on the call today. Let me quote from an email: “To the extent that updated data exists or that there is clearer evidence of the safety benefit of vaccination on the users or other stakeholders of the transportation system, it would be helpful to assist Transport Canada supporting its measures”. That's a quote from ADM McCrorie.
Now, the mandates were set to be implemented, but your department didn't even have the information that indicated it was necessary or based in science.
To just circle back to your question about the science that's being followed by municipalities and provinces, they have all eliminated their mandates since, yet you have not. If you're following the same science they are, why have they all lifted their mandates but you have not?
