Ekaterina Baker Got COVID-19 Vaccines
The former president and CEO of a Canadian casino company and his wife are the couple accused of breaking Yukon COVID-19 rules and chartering a plane to the small community of Beaver Creek to receive doses of the Moderna vaccine.
Rodney Baker, a 55-year-old who resigned from the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation on Sunday, and Ekaterina Baker, a 32-year-old aspiring actress, both received tickets at the Whitehorse airport on Jan. 21, according to court records.
Yukon Community Services Minister John Streicker told CBC Monday the couple arrived in Whitehorse on Jan. 19.
However, instead of completing a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period, the Bakers on Jan. 21 chartered a flight to Beaver Creek, a community of about 100 people that is located roughly 450 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse near the Alaska border.
There, according to Streicker, they took advantage of a mobile vaccination clinic that was administering the first doses of the Moderna vaccine to locals, claiming they were new employees at an area motel.
Yukon’s rural communities have priority to receive vaccinations because they’re more vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19. Many are hours away from a hospital and lack the resources to address an outbreak.
The pair accused of violating the territorial Civil Emergency Measures Act (CEMA) by failing to self-isolate and failing to adhere to entry declarations.
Rodney Baker, who also goes by Rod, appointed president of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation in 2010 and then CEO in 2011.
The corporation owns more than 20 casinos in British Columbia, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and, last year became embroiled in an inquiry looking into allegations of corruption and money-laundering in B.C. casinos.
Great Canadian Gaming spokesperson Chuck Keeling told CBC in an email on Monday that the company “does not comment on personnel matters.”
However, he wrote that it “strictly follows all directives and guidance issued by public health authorities in each jurisdiction where we operate.”
Ekaterina Baker, meanwhile, is a Russian-born actress. According to her IMDB page, she appeared in a handful of films last year.
Social media posts show that the couple married in 2017.
