OTTAWA (LifeSiteNews) – A Member of Parliament has taken Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to task for keeping Canada’s “outdated” COVID travel restrictions.
On Wednesday, Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP Melissa Lantsman asked Trudeau who has been telling him to not drop his COVID travel mandates, an omission she called “vindictive” and unnecessary.
“International arrivals at Canadian airports are so backed up that people are being kept on planes for hours after they land because there isn’t enough space for the long lineups. His minister blames travelers, and the world has embraced restriction-free travel,” said Lantsman during a heated exchange in Canada’s House of Commons.
“The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Airports Council, and now health experts are telling this government that their outdated COVID restrictions have to go. Who’s actually telling the government to keep those restrictions?”
CPC MP @MelissaLantsman cites a number of organizations and experts who are calling on the feds to drop the travel restrictions. She asks PM Trudeau who is advising the government to keep the restrictions.

Trudeau replied by saying that “the pandemic is still with us, so we need to continue to do what is necessary based on science, to keep people safe.”
He then said that more security workers are being hired to address staffing issues and that it’s a “good thing that Canadians are starting to travel again.”
“We will be there to support them, but we’re also going to continue to keep Canadians safe,” Trudeau added.
To this, Lantsman replied that the answer to her question is that there is nobody telling Trudeau to keep the travel mandates “except for the spin doctors in the Liberal Cabinet.”
“Instead of telling Canadians they are out of practice, he could bring back the workers that they fired,” she continued.
“He could stop the 4,000 tests for incoming travelers each day. He could do what most other countries have done and end the restrictions. Why is he doing nothing?”
Trudeau then said that his government will “evaluate and re-evaluate the measures we have to keep Canadians safe.”
Last week, Lantsman, a long-time critic of COVID vaccine travel mandates, blamed travel COVID mandates imposed by the government of Trudeau for clogging up the nation’s airports.
She said the “unscientific” rules need to be dropped.
Earlier this week, Lantsman and her fellow CPC MP Michelle Ferreri demanded on behalf of their party that Trudeau end his “vindictive” COVID jab travel mandate, saying recent testimony proves it is causing nothing but chaos at airports.
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

On Thursday, she put forth a motion in the House of Commons asking the Trudeau government to “immediately revert to pre-pandemic rules and service levels for travel.”
The motion has been deferred until Monday, May 30, 2022.
Last fall, Trudeau put in place a mandate that in effect bans those who have chosen not to get the COVID vaccines to travel ban by air, rail, or sea. The travel vaccine mandate bans Canadians from flying within Canada as well as out of the country.
However, enforcement of the rule is the responsibility of airlines, some of which offer paths for medical and religious exemptions.
Canadian airports are now facing massive delays, and some travelers are being forced to stay on planes for hours after landing.
In a May 4, 2022 statement, the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA), which manages Canada’s largest airport, sounded an alarm over airport bottlenecks and called for the Trudeau Liberals to ease COVID rules.
In December 2021, the Canadian government announced it would impose a vaccine mandate for all workers in federally regulated industries under its Policy on Covid-19 Vaccination. This policy went into effect on November 15, 2021.
Those without the jabs were not allowed to work and were placed on leave, including many who worked for Canadian airports, airlines, as well as federal agencies connected to aviation and travel.
It was recently revealed that over 2,500 federal employees who chose not to disclose whether they’ve had the experimental COVID jabs were suspended from their jobs without pay by their federal managers.
