Challengers to the now-repealed travel vaccine mandate pleaded before the Federal Court of Appeal on Oct. 11 to overturn a previous court decision declaring their case was moot.

Four different groups of appellants made their case in front of a panel of three judges, each taking various approaches to challenge the previous ruling made by Justice Jocelyne Gagné in October last year.

Quebec lawyer Nabil Ben Naoum, who represents himself, sought to impress upon the appeal judges what it meant to not be vaccinated during the mandate period from October 2021 to June 2022.

He argued that those who didn’t receive a COVID-19 vaccine were captive within Canada due to planes, trains, and commercial passenger marine vessels being off-limits. The U.S. also blocked access to non-vaccinated travellers at that time.
