Alexa Lavoie has been spending much of her time recently covering the ongoing Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa. With the convoy and other solidarity protests happening not only in Canada, but around the world, one story might have slipped under the radar.

A few weeks ago, Quebec Premier Francois Legault announced his government would begin issuing a tax to its population that has chosen to remain unvaccinated due to their alleged burden on health-care facilities.

Now, whether it merely a change of heart or advice from medical advisors — or more likely, legal experts — Premier Legault has shifted his position and scrapped those plans.

While in Ottawa, Alexa asked the people on the street what they thought of Legault's reversal and whether this was the correct decision.
