Ottawa: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today he needs to know more about Quebec's plan to impose some sort of levy on the unvaccinated before he can decide whether to support the idea.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference on Parliament Hill, Trudeau said the federal government has tried to encourage the unvaccinated to get the shot with travel restrictions and vaccine mandates — but a health care tax like the one proposed by Quebec is a novel concept that needs further study.
