Hours later, the Alberta government announced the end of vaccine passport requirements Tuesday evening as part of a larger, multistep approach to eliminating most mandates, according to the Canadian outlet.
Notorious for having especially stringent COVID mandates, Quebec will no longer restrict private gatherings starting Saturday, and most restrictions are set to be lifted by March 14.
