EDMONTON, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) – The Canadian province of Alberta is expected to remove a COVID jab mandate for health care workers in two weeks’ time, but not for staff hired this year.
According to a Global News report from yesterday, draft documents obtained from Alberta Health Minister Jason Copping’s office show that effective March 15, “Alberta Health Services shall rescind its current Immunization Or Testing For COVID-19 Policy.”
The document seen by Global News states, however, that all Alberta Health Services (AHS) employees hired after November 30, 2021, must be “fully immunized against COVID-19.”
AHS added that it might introduce a temporary testing “of workers for COVID-19 as required.”
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

According to the draft documents, Copping could require, if he so asks, the exact terms and conditions that are necessary to go forth with a new policy for AHS workers.
At a press conference Tuesday, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney hinted that the draft document seen by Global News could soon become reality.
“We need to address the workforce challenges that we are facing, particularly in nursing homes and some rural hospitals in under-vaccinated areas given there is no longer a compelling policy rationale for proof of vaccination programs,” said Kenney.
Last year, AHS mandated that all its workers be “fully vaccinated” with the COVID shots by November 30, with the order taking effect on December 13. The mandate impacted thousands of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, including those contracted.
A large group of Alberta healthcare workers spoke out against the COVID jab mandate.
Alberta physician Dr. Chris Gordillo was one of the doctors to speak out. Last year at a rally in Edmonton, he said he saw “many people injured by vaccines,” and that COVID jab mandates are a form of “tyranny.”
Another Canadian doctor, Daniel Nagase, was one of the first in Alberta to openly speak of the benefits of treating COVID with Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and a regimen of Vitamins C and D.
His testimony of how he treated three people in a rural Alberta hospital with the taboo drugs went viral. Despite the fact all three of his patients made a swift recovery, Nagase nonetheless was banned from practicing medicine in Alberta hospitals.
The Alberta group Health Professionals United, of which Gordillo is a part, includes 200 doctors and more than 1,000 nurses. The group was formed last fall to fight government COVID-19 injection mandates, and also to raise the alarm over adverse injection reactions witnessed firsthand.
Alberta’s neighboring province of British Columbia is taking the opposite route, and recently announced its COVID jab mandate now includes all healthcare workers. As a result, many vaccine-free healthcare staff who were placed on leave have been fired.
Kenney announced yesterday that masks are no longer required in Alberta, after earlier removing the province’s vaccine passport on February 8.
Alberta’s Health Minister Jason Copping attributed the removal of COVID rules to “vaccination uptake in the province.”
This is despite the fact most of the people in provincial hospitals with COVID are those who have been jabbed.
Despite the mandates being lifted, Christian pastor Artur Pawlowski is still behind bars after being denied bail.
Kenney has said that he would amend the law so that cities would not be able to create vaccine passports or impose mask mandates. It remains to be seen what he will do with Alberta’s capital city of Edmonton, which says it will keep a mask mandate in place via a by-law.
Despite Alberta and Saskatchewan now being mostly free of COVID rules, skepticism remains, no doubt due to many having lost their jobs for refusing to take the COVID jabs.
COVID restrictions evolved from March 2020’s “stay at home” orders and the shutting down of businesses, churches, and restaurants to eight-hour-a-day mask mandates for toddlers in daycare, forced vaccinations to remain employed or receive lifesaving kidney transplants, and segregation based on mRNA jab status.
