TORONTO — Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller has a simple message for anyone thinking of following the lead of the Vancouver couple who allegedly flew to a remote community in Yukon to jump the COVID-19 vaccination queue: Don’t.

“There’s extreme scarcity of the doses and some people, for whatever reason, [are] trying to game the system,” Miller said Wednesday at a press conference.

“You shouldn’t do it. It’s dumb. It’s wrong. It’s unfair.”

Rod Baker and Ekaterina Baker are each facing fines of $1,150 for allegedly failing to self-isolate and failing to behave in a manner consistent with the declarations they made upon their arrival in Yukon, according to court documents obtained by CTV News. Rod Baker has also resigned as CEO of casino operator Great Canadian Gaming.
