EDMONTON, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) – Alberta’s Minister of Justice, who saw three Christian pastors jailed for violating COVID rules, was removed from his duties after allegations he tried to use his position to influence the outcome of a driving ticket. 

On March 10, 2021, Alberta Justice Minister Kaycee Madu was allegedly seen by an Edmonton cop driving through a playground zone while on his cellphone. He received a $300 distracted driving ticket.  

According to a CBC report, Madu phoned Edmonton Police Chief Dale McFee to speak with him about the ticket shortly after the incident. 

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney placed Madu on leave last Monday after he learned of the CBC report. 

“I have spoken with Minister Madu about the March 10 incident reported in the media today,” Kenney tweeted.  

“I conveyed to him my profound disappointment in his decision to contact the Edmonton Police chief after receiving a ticket for a traffic violation.”  

Kenney said that Alberta’s Energy Minister Sonya Savage will take on Madu’s duties and that an “independent investigator” will be tasked with looking into the incident.  

McFee confirmed with CBC that Madu did call him, but to be “very clear,” he said, “he never asked to get out of the ticket.” 

Later, it was confirmed that Madu had paid for the ticket.  

However, during the call with McFee, Madu, who was born in Nigeria, said he had concerns police might be racially profiling minorities.  

“The officer indicated that he had observed me driving while distracted, alleging that I was on my phone,” said Madu, adding he “disagreed, stating that I was not on my phone, as it was in an inside pocket.”

Tell the Ronald McDonald House in British Columbia (BC) and Yukon to stop discriminating against families who do not wish to get the experimental COVID-19 vaccine!

It seems incredible -- like one of those click-bait headlines you see every day on shady websites. 

But this is 100% real, and represents a terrifying new reality that families with sick children are facing without any rational or logical justification.

That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this crucial petition asking the Ronald McDonald House Charities leadership to STOP discriminating against the unvaccinated family members of sick children who need their support.

The Canadian Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, which provides housing for the families of sick children who are being treated in nearby hospitals, has sent letters to families ordering them to submit to the experimental COVID shots or to vacate the premises -- regardless of their children's needs.

On the organization's website, the Ronald McDonald House plainly states the following:  "All guests and visitors to the House must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. These measures in addition to an abundance of sanitizer and kindness will help us ensure the safety of everyone at the House."

But, of course, none of the measures suggested by the Ronald McDonald House, much less the COVID-19 vaccine, have been successful in stopping or even slowing the virus' transmission or reducing infection rates.

And with Pfizer's own CEO admitting just this week that the two COVID shots are not effective at preventing infection, it remains unclear what, exactly, the Ronald McDonald House means by "full vaccination."

Regardless, denying families housing during their child's hospital stay -- which is the primary mission of the Ronald McDonald House -- is not only a misguided discriminatory practice, it's stunningly cruel, and it must not continue going forward.

So please take a minute to SIGN and SHARE this important petition calling on Ronald McDonald House British Columbia and Yukon to stop discriminating against families based on their vaccination status.

These families need to focus on supporting their loved ones through very difficult medical situations and procedures, not get caught up the maddening politics of the COVID vaccine.

Whereas the Ronald McDonald Houses have historically been a refuge for needy families, they have now tragically succumbed to the mass formation psychosis over COVID taking Canada and the world by storm, and have decided to join in the unconscionable mass targeting of the unvaccinated to virtue-signal their way through these unprecedented times.

This is unacceptable -- particularly from an organization like the Ronald McDonald House -- and it must stop.

Thank you!

Madu claimed that due to the timing of the incident, he wanted to ensure that he was “not being unlawfully surveilled following the controversy surrounding the Lethbridge Police Service. I also raised concerns around profiling of racial minorities that was in the media at the time.” 

Madu then said McFee “assured” him that was most “definitely not the case.” 

The Justice Minister wrote  in a series of tweets last week, he said he was not trying to use his influence as justice minister to get his ticket canceled.  

“With hindsight now I can see how that may be perceived,” he tweeted. 

Today, news broke that a retired Alberta judge will be overseeing the independent investigation into Madu’s phone call with McFee, with a report to be released to the public on February 15.  

While Madu has been Justice Minister, three Christian pastors have been jailed because they defied COVID-19 health rules regarding church services that limit congregation size.  

The most well-known pastor to be arrested was Artur Pawlowski, who just recently spent a night in jail after being arrested on New Year’s Day in a highway takedown for allegedly breaking a court order. 

In the spring of 2021, Pawlowski, who is a Polish immigrant, made international headlines for calling police and health inspectors making two unannounced health visits to his church “Gestapo Nazis.” 

Pawlowski and his brother were arrested in a highway takedown in May2021 for holding worship services at their Calgary church amid COVID lockdowns. 

The Pawlowskis served three nights in jail before being released on bail. 

In May 2021, only two months after calling Edmonton’s police chief about a ticket, Madu said, “Enforcement will be done, and Albertans will see it being done” against COVID rule-breakers such as the Pawlowskis.   

Madu then claimed that he would not direct police to enforce COVID rules, nor interfere with how the courts prosecute tickets.
