Alberta premier Kenney approaching U.S. governors to end to trucker vaccine mandates

Alberta premier Jason Kenney has stated that he is working with U.S. governors to lobby president Joe Biden and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau for an end to trucker vaccine mandates, as these are causing great disruptions to cross-border shipments.

The Conservative politician said the group is preparing a letter to Biden and Trudeau “urging them to use common sense, and end the policy that has taken thousands of trucks off the road,” according to a post on Twitter showing empty shelves at grocery stores. “This is turning into a crisis. It requires immediate action by the Canadian and U.S. governments.”

Mexico is also concerned about the impact the mandates could have on the economy and has been discussing the topic with the U.S. government, said a Mexican foreign ministry official.
