Calgary city councillors voted unanimously on Tuesday to officially include youth sports and recreation activities in the vaccine passport program.

According to Airdrie lawyer Derek From, the original wording for Bylaw 65M2021 “implied” youth sports were “in-scope” with respect to the province’s Restriction Exemption Program (REP).

“Now, with this amendment, it is explicit,” said From, pointing to a subsection of the amendment which states, in part: “… for the purposes of this bylaw an ‘eligible business’ also includes a youth physical activity, youth performance activity or youth recreational activity.”

Although city administration recommended the rules in Calgary should be the same as provincial ones, according to From, the amendment, “demonstrates they are ignoring the province and have rewritten the law, which they aren’t allowed to do,” he said, adding provincial law is superior to city bylaws.

With respect to the Government of Alberta website defining requirements of the REP, it states: “Youth physical activity, performance activity, and recreational activity where all participants are under the age of 18,” are considered out of scope for the program.

Watch as lawyer Derek From provides an update on the amended bylaw and what it means for youth in sports moving forward in the City of Calgary.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.
