Ottawa Public Health has teamed up with local businesses who will be hosting vaccination clinics at pubs, restaurants, and shops. Some of these business owners say they’ve been dealing with backlash for doing so. Drew Dobson, the owner of Finnigan’s Pub in Vanier, says he’s been called a Nazi and threatened with a boycott. He says he was taken aback by the comments but will continue with the OPH partnership to help more people get vaccinated. Drew joins Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
