(LifeSiteNews) – Newly elected Canadian Member of Parliament (MP) Dr. Leslyn Lewis took aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s push to get COVID vaccines in the arms of kids age 5-11, saying some parents do indeed “question” the safety of the injections.
“Never have Canadian children been used as shields for adults. Parents question vaccinating kids 5-12 without long-term data, a low risk of fatality, & cautions echoed around the world, when the treatment neither prevents transmitting or getting the virus,” Lewis tweeted Friday.
Lewis’s Friday tweet included a link to a report about the federal government ordering 2.9 million doses of COVID vaccines for children ages 5 to 11.
Trudeau last week announced the federal government’s deal with Pfizer for the COVID shot for kids, which will be delivered, Trudeau said, once Health Canada approves the vaccines.
He said that Canada will have enough doses “to ensure that all children in Canada, aged 5 to 11, can receive the vaccine.”
Trudeau also recently announced a new national COVID vaccine passport system that will be mandatory for travel by air, sea, or rail by both domestically and internationally.
Lewis vowed to not be painted as a “reckless lunatic” to be lynched “into silence” because of her views.
“The media and the power structure expect me to sit in the back of the bus. I won’t! They will try to paint me as a reckless lunatic in order to lynch me into silence. I will always tell Canadians the truth, & no bully or threats will succeed against us! #canpoli,” Lewis wrote Saturday.
Lewis’ tweet was a response to a Saturday message posted on Twitter by Stockwell Day, former Minister of Public Safety and former leader of the Canadian Alliance party.
“Hope? History repeating? A black woman letting a majority white male power structure know that she won’t be told where to sit on Covid issues. As she will now begin to face a relentless, media generated hell of scorn will there be a man(or woman) who stands with her?” Day wrote.
On Saturday, Lewis posted a news report from one of her fellow CPC MPs, Jeremy Patzer, in which he raised concerns regarding COVID jab mandates and medical privacy.
Lewis tweeted, “It’s misguided to assume that those who stand up for medical privacy aren’t vaccinated. Canadian Law has long established the importance of medical privacy, and many Canadians, vaccinated and unvaccinated alike, are united in the fight to uphold democracy and freedoms. #canpoli.”
On Sunday, Lewis again took to Twitter, this time posting a message concerning a recent interim court injunction against Ontario’s University Health Network’s (UHN). The court ruled that UHN’s attempt to fire employees who are unvaccinated could severely hurt their ability to provide for their families.
Lewis tweeted, “Employers cannot set mandates contrary to the law. An Ontario court granted an interim injunction against UHN because the requirement to force nurses to take a vaccine against their will or end up destitute due to loss of job, results in irreparable harm.”
Last year, Lewis told LifeSiteNews that she was opposed to mandatory COVID-19 vaccines and that she had reservations about unethically sourced COVID-19 shots made from fetal cells obtained from aborted babies decades ago.
“Canada should hold itself to the highest ethical standard possible,” Lewis told LifeSiteNews.
On mandatory COVID shots, Lewis told LifeSiteNews last year that she does not “believe that the government should be allowed to force vaccinations on people,” she said.
“The decision whether or not to vaccinate should be made by Canadians under the advice of their personal family doctor.”
Regarding the COVID shots in kids, Alberta Dr. Chris Gordillo said a day ago at a rally it is crazy to give kids a jab for a virus that has a 99.97 survival rate in the lower age groups.
Canada’s federal government recently said they will ban democratically elected MPs and staff who have not had COVID jabs from accessing the nation’s center of democracy, the House of Commons.
Vaccine passports have been enacted in all Canadian provinces even though people who have taken the experimental COVID-19 jabs can still contract and spread the disease.
It is not known which CPC MPs have decided not to get the COVID jabs.
In the 2021 federal election, Lewis ran in the riding of Haldimand-Norfolk and won 47.5 percent of the votes, beating Liberal Party candidate Karen Matthews, who received 27 percent of the vote.
Lewis has a strong showing in the 2020 CPC leadership race, garnering 25 percent of the vote. She came in first place in Saskatchewan in the first round, then fell off the ranked ballot on the second round, despite having more votes than Erin O’Toole.
A total of 38 MPs from the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) with “green light” pro-life ratings from Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) were elected in the 2021 federal election.
The newly elected CPC MPs face an uphill battle from both CPC members who are openly pro-abortion and O’Toole, the party leader.
O’Toole ran a campaign on left-leaning views and won only 119 seats, which is two less than in the 2019 election.
CLC gave Lewis a “green light” rating as a “supportable” pro-life candidate.
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.
