CALGARY (JCCF) – The Justice Centre has engaged well-known trial lawyer and former Combat Officer Phillip Millar to represent Shannon Jones, a healthy and skilled Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) member who will be kicked out of the military because she has refused the mandated COVID shot.

Miss Jones filed an application in Federal Court on May 24, 2022 for an injunction to fight what she feels is an unfair release due to the vaccinate mandate put in place by the CAF. A hearing will take place on June 6, 2022.

This will be the first of many injunctions sought to protect the serving military soldiers, and Miss Jones is just one of dozens of serving members of the CAF being represented by Mr. Millar on the basis of health concerns, religious or conscientious objections to the COVID injections.

Warrant Officer James Topp is another client. Mr. Topp is a member of the CAF reserve force facing the charge of “Conduct to the Prejudice of Good Order and Discipline,” which has the potential to result in Court Martial.

Mr. Topp, who has been a serving member of the CAF for 28 years, has gained national headlines for his 4,293 kilometre “Canada marches” walk across the country, in protest of mandatory vaccine mandates, forced quarantines, mandatory testing, and other conditions of employment or provision of services.

Mr. Topp began his march on February 20, the same day police forces began using physical force against unarmed Freedom Convoy protesters in Ottawa. Facing job loss for refusing a COVID shot, Mr. Topp is averaging 30 km a day along the highway. His goal is to reach the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa by June 22.

The CAF chain of command has been fast-tracking personnel out of the force if they are not granted a waiver, using the 5F release procedure.

Beginning in January 2022, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms received hundreds of requests from active military members for help and guidance about steps they could take to avoid being discharged unfairly under the 5F release procedure.

The Justice Centre maintains that military members are entitled to have their constitutional freedoms such as freedom of religion and conscience protected, as CAF members have fought and served to protect the freedoms of all Canadians.

Is the Conservative Party of Canada giving pro-life candidates the cold shoulder in this year's leadership race?

That's what many Canadians have been left to wonder after the CPC recently announced that two conservative, pro-life candidates, Grant Abraham and Joseph Bourgault, would not be eligible to have their names officially placed on the ballot for party leader, even after seemingly meeting all requirements to do so.

Could this be a case of the CPC establishment arbitrarily picking winners and losers in the ongoing leadership election? And, if so, are true conservatives like Abraham and Bourgault the ones being unfairly targeted?

We must ask ourselves -- and the CPC -- these questions.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on the Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) of the Conservative Party to immediately reinstate Grant Abraham and Joseph Borgault onto the ballot for party leader in this year's election immediately.

While Grant Abraham, an attorney from British Columbia and Joseph Bourgault, a businessman from Saskatchewan, may not be as well-known as some of their opponents running for Conservative Party Leader, they still managed, with hard work, determination, and grassroots support, to meet all of the stated requirements for their names to be faithfully added to the official CPC leadership ballot for this year's election on September 10th.

According to the CPC, these requirements are for candidates to raise $300,000 and obtain 500 petition signatures -- both of which Abraham and Bourgault actually achieved.

Abraham actually had raised $300,000 for the entry fee, in addition to submitting 598 petition signatures, and, likewise, Bourgault raised nearly $400,000, and submitted over 1,000 petition signatures.

SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the CPC now!

Yet even so, the CPC confirmed to the candidates late last weekend that neither had made the final cut because they added a 15% "administration fee" in addition to the $300,000 -- making the actual total they would have needed to raise closer to $350,000 (which, remarkably, still wouldn't explain why at least Bourgault was denied access to the ballot).

Abraham has gone on record declaring that this was false advertising by the party, and that the additional administration fee was never actually communicated to them by the CPC prior to their rejection.

Only four pro-life candidates entered the race for CPC leader this year, and two of them were Abraham and Bourgault.

A third, MP Marc Dalton, failed to meet the fundraising requirements set forth by the party, and a fourth, former leadership candidate and current MP Leslyn Lewis, made it onto the ballot.

So, is the CPC squeezing out conservative, pro-life candidates wherever possible? Are they breaking their own rules to suit the party's establishment, instead of the Canadian people?

It seems that fake conservatives in the CPC establishment are guilty of the same corrupt, power-hungry tendencies they often criticize Liberals for embracing.

Conservatives must demand justice: SIGN and SHARE this petition demanding that members of the Conservative Party's LEOC take immediate action to reinstate Abraham and Bourgault onto the official ballot for CPC Leader.

Both Abraham and Bourgault intend to appeal this grossly unethical and ideologically-discriminatory decision themselves, but they also need support from Canadians like YOU to get the message across!

Thank you!

Mr. Millar, a former full-time Combat Officer in the CAF Infantry, former Assistant Crown Attorney, and experienced trial lawyer who has already successfully sued the Department of National Defence (DND) in the past, is taking an approach to fighting for the rights of CAF members that is different from other legal actions.

“Miss Jones’ life is being upended, her career destroyed and her pension put at risk without due process,” says Mr. Millar. “This is fundamentally a patched together policy designed to punish those who do not get in line with the political objectives assigned to DND policy from Ottawa.”

“Everyone who signs up for the military understands there is an acceptance that your personal freedoms can be limited in order to preserve the operational effectiveness of the military,” said Millar. “But the vaccine mandate has nothing to do with operational effectiveness as it is simply a political move imposed on the military by the Federal Government.”

“There is inconsistency in how this policy is being applied, and it is unduly punitive and wrong,” he added. “We are asking the Federal Court to grant an injunction that prevents the military from kicking members out before their concerns are heard,” adds Mr. Millar.
