Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau

For several months I have been writing to members of the Provincial and Federal governments imploring them to classify Flight Attendants as “those contributing to the maintenance of other essential services for the functioning of society” and “those whose living or working conditions put them at elevated risk of infection” under the government’s Preliminary guidance on key populations for early COVID-19 immunization.

With the exception of a few of replies outlining general provincial and territorial vaccination plans, these letters have largely gone unanswered.

My letters, and the few responses I have received, can be viewed by clicking HERE.

Today I wrote to Prime Minister Trudeau reminding him of the important contributions and sacrifices that Flight Attendants have made throughout this pandemic, and why it is so important for them to be protected with vaccines while they continue to go to work every day.
