“I believe we need to send a clear message to the public and employers that such measures are unnecessary and deeply divisive to our province’s social fabric. We must make it clear that we will not allow folks to lose their jobs during these difficult times, nor will we allow any segment of society to be treated as second-class citizens,” wrote Airdrie-East United Conservative Party (UCP) MLA Angela Pitt in an email.
“As such, I have proposed we put forth legislation that prohibits discrimination based on private, personal health records.”
According to the Western Standard, Pitt made the comments in an email which the Standard says it was able to obtain.
CTV News has stated that it was privy to a letter with similar wording as that seen by the Western Standard, with Pitt’s email signature, recommending that the UCP government enact a ban on allowing employers in Alberta from mandating COVID-19 vaccines.
Alberta’s Premier and leader of the governing UCP Jason Kenney has said he will not introduce vaccine passports in the province.
However, Kenney’s tone may be shifting. In a Facebook live interview on Wednesday, he hinted at potential “other measures” coming to the “unvaccinated.”
“We may have to take other measures to encourage people, the unvaccinated, to ensure they are not putting themselves in a position where they’re transmitting,” said Kenney.
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.

Just this Tuesday, the province’s health authority, Alberta Health Services (AHS), announced that all staff and contractors must be fully COVID-19 jabbed by October 16.
Independent Alberta MLA Drew Barnes, booted from Kenney’s party earlier in the year, blasted the leader on Wednesday for turning a “blind eye” to businesses that have imposed jab mandates of their own.
Alberta’s Health Minister Tyler Shandro said last week that the province will not be mandating a “vaccine passport” for local use.
“Albertans have been asking more questions about proof of vaccination in recent days, so we have posted answers to some of the most common questions online. To be clear, the Alberta government has not and will not mandate a so-called ‘vaccine passport’ for domestic use,” Shandro said.
On July 1, Alberta lifted virtually all COVID-19 restrictions, the first province in Canada to do so. Currently, no restrictions are in place; however, some cities such as Edmonton have reintroduced mask mandates.
In June the Kenney government passed Bill 66, which repealed a long-standing vaccinations section of the province’s Public Health Act that in theory could be used to force jabs on everyone in the province.
Although Kenney has removed all COVID-19 restrictions, his popularity has taken a blow amongst his conservative base.
Harsh COVID-19 restrictions earlier in the year, combined with three Alberta pastors being jailed for defying virus rules, has resulted in a low level of approval for Kenney in the polls.
As for MLA Angela Pitt, she has been critical of Kenney in the past. In June she was one of a group of UCP MLAs who openly blasted Kenney after photos surfaced of him and senior cabinet ministers having a rooftop dinner – an activity which at the time appeared to contradict the government’s own COVID-19 rules.
Currently, Albertans wanting proof of COVID-19 vaccinations download personal health records from the Alberta Health Services website.
Canada’s Prime Minser Justin Trudeau said recently that if re-elected on September 20, he would create a $1 billion COVID-19 vaccine passport fund for provinces to access.
