OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) — As tens of thousands of a “small fringe minority” of truckers descend on the nation’s capital of Ottawa to protest Canada’s tyrannical so-called COVID-19 measures, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau serendipitously went into “isolation” after being exposed, he said, to “COVID.” 

“Last night, I learned that I have been exposed to COVID-19. My rapid test result was negative. I am following @OttawaHealth rules and isolating for five days. I feel fine and will be working from home. Stay safe, everyone – and please get vaccinated,” ex-drama teacher Trudeau posted to Twitter this morning.  

“I think what he means is he’s scared of the truckers and has gone into hiding,” commented ethics professor Dr. Julie Ponesse.  

“Triple-vaccinated, not sick, feels fine, tests negative for the COVID virus, conveniently retreats home for the duration of a large protest in Ottawa against his policies,” mocked Ontario lawyer Ryan O’Connor.  

O’Connor and Ponesse are certainly correct in questioning Trudeau’s statement, considering we are into the second year of his “two weeks to flatten the curve.” But one has to ask: Does Trudeau not like being the target and scapegoat of the fracturing society he helped create?

IKEA, the retail furniture giant, has announced that it will CUT sick pay for unvaccinated employees who are forced to quarantine after being exposed to Covid-19 in the United Kingdom!

That's right: In the ongoing global effort to discriminate against unvaccinated people, massive corporations like IKEA are taking things to the next level, and planning to deprive working people of the pay they're entitled to simply because of their vaccination status!

That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on IKEA's executive leadership to discontinue any unfair policies that target unvaccinated workers and threaten them with reduced pay, or face a worldwide boycott of their stores and products.

This new policy will strip unvaccinated IKEA employees who have come in contact with someone who's tested positive for Covid-19 and, therefore, forced to isolate themselves, from well over half of their normal sick pay.

According to a report from Daily Mail, IKEA workers in the U.K. make, on average, between £404 and £452 per week. However, under the corporation's ridiculous new Covid policy, they can expect to make about £96.35 instead -- just because they've chosen against getting the vaccine.

To be clear: As the Omicron variant continues to rise, it's become more and more obvious that the Covid-19 vaccine is largely ineffective at preventing transmission and infection of the virus.

And it also goes without saying that everyone, everywhere should be able to opt against getting this experimental shot -- be it for medical, ethical, faith-based, or simply personal reasons -- without it affecting their ability to make a living and provide for their families.

But, as things currently stand, it would appear that IKEA executives disagree.

While the company has tried to sugar-coat the new policy to the best of their abilities, claiming that "this is an emotive topic and all circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis," the fact remains that any such policy seeks to penalize workers for being unvaccinated -- plain and simple.

And it's obvious where things are headed should this policy stay in place: Affected employees will inevitably opt against disclosing any known contact with a Covid-positive person in order to avoid unfairly losing their pay.

Regardless, this is unacceptable and IKEA must rethink things going forward.

So let's let them know where WE stand, and that, until they revoke this misguided, discriminatory pay policy, we will NOT continue to patronize their company or use their products any longer.

So please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on IKEA's leadership to abandon this policy (and any future policies) that would, in any way, discriminate against employees in the U.K. for choosing against getting vaccinated for Covid-19.

It shouldn't be any multi-billion-dollar corporation's responsibility or prerogative to withhold pay from their workers just because they've chosen to retain the basic right to make important medical decisions for themselves without undue influence or coercion.

IKEA has let us know how they feel. Now it's time to share with them how we feel.

Thank you!

No, that can’t be the case! Trudeau had no problem calling the truckers taking part in the Freedom Convoy a “small, fringe minority” with “unacceptable views,” perplexingly labeling the unvaccinated as racists and sexists, and barring unvaccinated 12-year-olds from boarding planes, trains, and boats, so it would be ridiculous to assert that when Trudeau himself becomes the target of public anger and outrage he would flip-flop on his decidedly pro-scapegoating beliefs — right?   

If there is one thing we all know, Trudeau has been the model of honesty and consistency, correct? Yes, while it’s true that he was caught donning “black-face” on three separate occasions, he reminded us that it is the unvaccinated that are racists, not him. How could he be racist? He has taken three COVID-19 injections! 

The unvaccinated have to be the true misogynists as well, for, in solidarity with women, Trudeau uses the extremely eloquent term “peoplekind” so as not to offend half the population with the repugnant term “mankind.” 

Now, one can also ask: Should the government discriminate against people who choose to opt out of an experimental injection that has led to millions of injuries and thousands of deaths, even if the mandates cause a split society, skyrocketing inflation, and empty shelves? If I refer to the inerrant and infallible wisdom of our great drama teacher in chief, the answer is unequivocally yes.  

Of course, this post has been made in jest, as Trudeau’s actions have created a chasm in society that may take years, if not generations, to bridge. So-called COVID measures have caused irreparable harm to Canadian society, with surges in drug overdose deaths and suicidal ideation in children noticed in many jurisdictions across the nation. This is not even to mention the divisions among friends and families, the shuttering of small businesses, and the temporary closure of churches.  

Trudeau has coerced all federal employees into taking the experimental shot. He has also pushed the jab on children as young as 5, despite the overtly pro-experimental injection World Health Organization admitting there is no long-term safety data for this age group. As well, he has left hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Canadians unemployed or underemployed for two years. 

Just when enough has finally been enough, Trudeau crawls into his “home” to “isolate” for a disease he has been thrice “vaccinated” against.  

But perhaps his cowardice is actually a good sign for Canadians, and not a cause for even more anger. In fact, this sudden bashfulness may be the fulfillment of one of the most famous quotes in political history, attributed (albeit without certainty), to Thomas Jefferson.  

“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
