The Canadian government is allowing the Raptors to return to Toronto.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Yes, vaccinated people are less likely to contract and spread coronavirus. If they have a rare breakthrough case, vaccinated people are less likely to suffer severe outcomes. The vaccines are safe, highly effective and the best ticket back to normalcy.
There’s a discussion to be had about striking the right balance between public safety and freedom.
The league’s protocols already carry major limitations for unvaccinated players. Those rules – agreed upon between a private business and a union – aren’t enforced through the heavy-handedness of imprisonment and such large fines, though.
