“Don’t think it’s happening”
“I should probably say this because I haven’t yet. My 4/20 show that’s sold-out in Vancouver, I don’t think that that’s happening,” Rogan said of the scheduled event in Canada.
“I don’t even think I can get into the country,” Rogan explained. “I don’t think I can go and even if I do go, I don’t trust that Vancouver is not going to follow suit with what Toronto did — where they cut capacity to 50%.
Joe Rogan announced that he will be canceling his April 20 show In Vancouver, Canada due to the nation’s strict vaccine mandates:

“I’m not vaccinated. I’m not gonna get vaccinated. I have antibodies. It doesn’t make any sense,” he said.
Rogan has a recent history of making various statements about the pandemic and the vaccine that have set the liberal media on fire.
Ticketmaster has since confirmed the cancellation of the event on its website.
“Unfortunately, the Event Organizer has had to cancel your event. No action is required to obtain a refund,” the event notice read.
The change followed new COVID-19 restrictions in British Columbia next week that closed bars and gyms. Other venues were capped to a 50% capacity restriction.
The growing frustration over canceled events continues to cause concerns to entertainment, sports, and other industries as government overreach challenges the freedoms of those willing to stand for their beliefs rather than change to conform to mandates.
