The Jets are the first NHL team to mandate vaccine passports for the upcoming season, and I LOVE it.
It took two sentences to comply with the wants and needs of fans who are interested in the greater good. Fully vaccinated Canadians can and should be able to comfortably watch a fucking hockey game in person. The Winnipeg Jets should also be allowed to maximize profits by mandating vaccine passports.
So they bit the PR bullet and did what every other Canadian NHL franchise will do: mandate passports and vaccines for fans and employees.
Every Canadian NHL team will do it. The Blue Jays will do it and so will the Raptors. They’ll ALL choose capacity and revenue over catering to morons. It’s only a matter of time.
Based on the decision, 16,345 rabid Jets fans will send hundreds of part-time and full-time employees back to work for the first time in two years while feeding their souls all without having to stress about dodging the plague.
Want to go to a Jets game? Get vaccinated. That’s the only way, bro.
Get the net. It’s over. Yesterday the Federal Government announced they are coming up with Vaccine passports for international travelers which can (and probably will) be used as ‘domestic passports’. Every Canadian NHL team will do it. The Blue Jays will do it and so will the Raptors.
“HMMM. Do we want a full barn and mitts of money or should we cater to morons, kill our business and put our employees on the breadline?”
It’s only a matter of time.
I think that’s what Doug Ford is counting on. If Trudeau comes up with vaccine passports, Doug doesn’t have to go back on his word to his equally dumb friends in the anti-vax community, keeping his dream of getting re-elected alive.
Why did the Jets go fully vaccinated? Season ticket holders (The Money) told them too.
Speak up. Demand it from your school or place of work. Threaten them with your money and ongoing support. It works EVERY TIME.
