Statement on food retailers serving New Brunswick customers

Parliament Hill • New Brunswick Southwest Member of Parliament John Williamson issued the following statement:

"I want to commend national and local essential food retailers that continue to serve all New Brunswick customers and aren’t requesting proof of vaccinations as a condition to enter their grocery stores. Instead, they are maintaining safety measures that have kept their front-line employees and customers safe since March 2020.

"I encourage people to get vaccinated as the most effective way to protect themselves. I also understand a small minority remain vaccine hesitant and we must manage their concerns and wellbeing. Denying people access to essential basic necessities is not defensible in any society, under any circumstance."
