Federal Aviation Safety Agency Seeks Unconscious Bias Training
The federal government, charged with openly discriminating against unvaccinated air travelers, is seeking to address their less direct forms of discrimination.
According to MERX website, where local and federal government agencies post requests for offers and information, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority requires anti-bias and unconscious bias training.
On October 30, 2021, the last restrictions on Canadian travelers came into effect. The new rules require that any traveler aged 12 years plus 4 months, or more, have two doses of COVID-19 vaccine to board:
- domestic or international flights from most airports in Canada, including charter and foreign airlines carrying commercial passengers
- VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains
However, until November 29, 2021, the federal government allows a small grace period, during which a valid COVID-19 molecular test can be performed within 72 hours of travel for people considered unvaccinated or under-vaccinated. .
Perhaps the new bias training is warranted.
According to a recent Angus Reid poll, given the demographics of those reluctant to get vaccinated, minorities are disproportionately affected by the travel ban for the unvaccinated:
Indigenous Canadians are twice as likely as those who do not identify as visible minorities to have refused to be vaccinated, and the government still has a lot of work to do to overcome mistrust caused by generations of abuse inflicted on Aboriginal people by the medical system.
Fight Vaccine Passports is a project, in partnership with registered Canadian charity The Democracy Fund, that is waging 20 strategic legal battles across the country to reverse the medical coercion of workplace vaccination mandates and proof of vaccination for participate in daily life.
