RCC met with senior Saskatchewan government officials late last week to discuss concerns with the restrictions that have been placed on liquor stores and quick service restaurants (QSRs). Saskatchewan is the only Canadian province to require liquor store (or any retail store) customers to present proof of vaccination. The policy has resulted in significant confusion due to restrictions being tied to the not always apparent SGLA licence a store has, and RCC is advocating that the POV requirement be lifted.
RCC has also advocated on behalf of QSR members that the requirement to confirm vaccination status for takeout at the door be updated, to align with other western provinces where vaccination status may be verified at the check stand, using existing staff.
