Quebec lifts mask mandate on public transit, but not everyone is on board | CBC News

Masks are still mandatory in hospitals, long-term care homes and other health-care facilities, where it’s more likely that vulnerable people could potentially be exposed to COVID-19. Mental health establishments aren’t included.

But Aaron Ansuini says vulnerable people like him are everywhere, and dropping one of the last remaining health measures is like telling them that they don’t matter.

“This idea of survival of the fittest is pretty disturbing because it implies that, if you can’t survive, you don’t deserve to be alive, and that’s kind of reinforced by the conditions that we presently have,” said the young man who has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a multi-systemic connective tissue disorder that often affects his mobility.
