(LifeSiteNews) — Active and retired members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) joined together to say they cannot “willingly participate in enforcing” COVID jab mandates. They have asked their boss to investigate government officials’ role in coming up with draconian virus rules.
“Requiring mandatory COVID-19 treatment options is a slippery slope and allows the government to overstep its authority unchecked. It infringes on the fundamental belief in our society that the individual has the right and freedom to choose. The choice of whether to receive medical treatments has always been an individual’s right in Canada,” says the group called Mounties for Freedom in an open letter dated October 21 sent to RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki.
“Dear Commissioner Brenda Lucki: We respectfully submit this open letter to express our most sincere concerns and resolute stand against the forced coercive medical intervention of Canadians, and against the undue discrimination experienced by those exercising their lawful right to bodily autonomy.”
Mounties for Freedom say they are not “against vaccinations,” but as law enforcement officers, “we cannot in good conscience willingly participate in enforcing mandates that we believe go against the best interests of the people we protect.”
The group’s open letter at the time of this writing lists 51,974 signatures, gaining nearly 10,000 signatures in one day.
The letter is available to be signed by active and retired members of the RCMP, along with doctors, nurses, military, firefighters, other first responders, and supportive community members.
In early October, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced draconian and unprecedented COVID-19 jab mandates for all federal workers, and said the un-jabbed will no longer be able to travel by air, boat, or train.
Along with mandating all federal workers be jabbed, Trudeau said that all federally regulated industries such as airlines, and marine transportation, would also have to mandate COVID injections.
Mounties for Freedom say they created the letter from the “collective thoughts, beliefs, and opinions of actively serving police officers of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) from across the country.”
“Together we are the Mounties for Freedom. We are individual police officers who united in the belief that citizens, including federal employees, should not be forced and coerced into taking a medical intervention,” reads the group’s page.
The group says COVID jabs “should be voluntary” and that jabs are “personal choice.”
“We stand united against the forced and coerced medical intervention of Canadians and against the discrimination faced by those who have exercised their right to bodily autonomy. We believe in democracy, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the Bill of Rights.”
Group calls for open investigation of government officials to see if ‘criminal acts’ were committed
In its letter, the group calls upon Lucki to investigate whether or not there were “criminal acts” committed “in the dissemination of information from federal and provincial health authorities or public figures in positions of trust.”
“We ask you to send investigators to collect statements from medical professionals (and other reliable witnesses) who allege they had been silenced — putting lives at risk,” reads the letter. “A complete investigation must include full disclosure of all the facts of the case, even contradictory evidence. Why, then, is there little to no tolerance for free and open debate on this matter? Many credible medical and scientific experts are being censored. Accordingly, we rightly have concerns about ‘the science’ we are being coerced to ‘follow.’”
Mounties for Freedom called upon Lucki to take immediate action.
The Knights of Columbus in Quebec have apparently begun to pressurize and bully unvaccinated council members and officers who decline to take the COVID jab.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the Quebec Knights of Columbus, urging the Catholic men's fraternal organization to reverse course and stop penalizing Knights who refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
According to a letter obtained by LifeSiteNews, the leaders of the Quebec State Council of the Knights have seemingly implemented the following restrictions on unvaccinated members: 1) Effective immediately, unvaccinated knights shall be refused access to meeting and social venues; and, 2) Effective November 15th, any officer not "fully vaccinated" shall be relieved of his duties.
If true (and, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate), this Quebec Knights' policy is not only deeply flawed, but also deeply disturbing.
Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that a Catholic may use his or her conscience to decide to licitly refuse vaccination.
And, while the Church is allowing Catholics to take these unethical vaccines because of the lack of an ethically produced and tested vaccine, it must noted that the Church IS AGAINST FORCED VACCINATION and vaccine mandates.
Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how a Catholic organization can penalize (and, in effect, try to coerce) Catholics to accept vaccines which have many morally and medically troubling aspects.
To start with, all COVID vaccines available to Knights Quebecois were either developed or tested using aborted fetal cell lines! This very fact should militate against penalizing Knights who cannot accept these jabs, in good conscience, as morally repugnant per se.
And, there are at least three other serious issues with the vaccines, namely:
- The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
- The vaccines do not effectively stop transmission, and, in fact, probably facilitate transmission by allowing a vaccinated person to carry a large viral load which they can then spread to vaccinated and unvaccinated, alike.
- It is unwise to take and promote vaccines which have not undergone sufficient testing (animal, and otherwise), and which have no track record for possible long-term negative complications. Whereas most vaccines have taken between six and ten years to be fully tested and approved, these COVID jabs have only been given for less than a year -- and so, we do not know what the long-term effects will be.
With these issues in mind, please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on the Quebec Knights of Columbus State Council to reverse the draconian restrictions being placed against unvaccinated Knights.
The Quebec Knights of Columbus should be prepared to make reasonable accommodations for those members and officers who have decided to refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
After signing, please take a few minutes to contact the Quebec Knights of Columbus to politely, but firmly, ask them to reverse this decision which could seriously impinge on their fellow Knights' ability to follow their consciences in relation to taking a COVID vaccine.

“Commissioner Lucki, we ask that you represent the best image of the RCMP by remaining loyal to the Charter and Bill of Rights and not to any particular public figure. Our job as Mounties is to preserve the peace. If we continue down this road of segregation and discrimination, we risk repeating past mistakes. The divide in our society is quickly leaning toward a level of national security,” reads the letter.
“Allow us to make this information publicly available to all so the public can scrutinize it and achieve informed consent. As Canada’s national police force, we are unique in our ability to conduct a large-scale cross-country investigation, which must be transparent to regain trust in the government.”
The group then called upon Lucki to “challenge the Federal Government’s decision to send Mounties home without pay for decisions they’ve made on beliefs protected by Canadian laws.”
“Neither the RCMP, nor the communities they serve, can endure the loss of experienced police officers. We await your response and your plan of action,” reads the letter.
Mounties for Freedom listed documents from many notable doctors who have called out the safety and efficacy of COVID jabs, such as Dr. Byram Bridle, who is a viral immunologist from Ontario, and Dr. Eric Payne, a pediatric neurologist in Alberta.
“We have attached several documents as appendices to this letter which contain information we believe raises reasonable concerns with the current COVID-19 vaccination mandates seen across our country,” reads the group’s letter.
Group has never witnessed such ‘division’ over jab mandates
Mounties for Freedom then said that as members of their local communities, they have “never witnessed such division in our country.”
“This sense of ‘Us versus Them’ will be further fueled by having a police force consisting only of ‘vaccinated’ people, while serving communities consisting of ‘unvaccinated’ people, which goes against the community policing model the RCMP has strived to achieve,” reads the letter.
Mounties for Freedom say that police are expected to uphold the law, keep the peace, and “defend the public interest.” However, the group said it remains loyal to the “Charter and Bill of Rights” as “[w]e strongly believe that forced and coerced medical treatments undermine” and “contradict our duties and responsibilities to Canadians.”
“Allow us to make this information publicly available to all so the public can scrutinize it and achieve informed consent,” reads the letter.
In September, the union representing Canada’s national police force, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), said it would stand by officers who decide to not get the COVID-19 jabs.
In August, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) said it is “unacceptable” that Canada’s federal government would use “discipline” to mandate its new requirement that all civil servants receive COVID-19 vaccines by October.
Many consider such mandates a gross assault on individual freedoms that’s totally unnecessary given COVID-19’s high survivability among most groups, low risk of asymptomatic spread, and research indicating that post-infection natural immunity is equally protective against reinfection.
The COVID-19 injections approved for emergency use in Canada, including the Pfizer jab for ages 12 and up, all have connections to cells derived from aborted babies.
All four have also been associated with severe side effects such as blood clots, rashes, miscarriages, and even heart attacks in young, healthy men.
The COVID jab trials have never produced evidence that vaccines stop infection or transmission. They do not even claim to reduce hospitalization, but the measurement of success is in preventing severe symptoms of COVID-19.
