WATERLOO, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — High school siblings who said in retrospect it was a “good choice” they did not get the experimental COVID jabs have been banned from competing in an upcoming badminton tournament hosted by the University of Waterloo.
As reported by True North news, Josiah and Chloe-Ann Kranenburg said they were notified vaccinated players would be taking their place at the tournament, which is scheduled to be held April 20.
The school said that it was keeping a mandatory COVID jab policy in place despite the fact there has been no provincial law mandating one since March 1.
The Kranenburgs are students at Brantford Collegiate Institute and Vocational School, and the news they are banned from their school district’s regional tournament came first from their coach.
According to True North, Josiah was informed on March 29 by his coach that he would be sidelined if he did not first get the jabs.
Chloe-Ann said she had first heard in locker room talk that there could be issues with her competing because she was not injected.
The siblings said their coaches tried but could not do “much” to help them. Assistance from the Central West Ontario Secondary Schools Association, which is staging the tournament, also did not result in any help.
As reported by True North, Josiah said they decided to not get the COVID shots last year as they wanted to wait to see “if it was safe and effective.”
He added that it has been “about a year since then, and we looked back, and we realized it probably was a good choice to not have gotten the vaccine.”
As for Chloe-Ann, she said that there was pressure from her peers to get the jabs, saying her friends just “kept asking me if I was vaccinated, and I kept saying no, and they just kept asking ‘why not.’”
The University of Waterloo recently fired 49 employees for not complying with the school’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy, despite the school saying starting May 1 it will “suspend our vaccination requirements for entry to campus.”
As it stands now, however, the school says that “all students, employees and visitors to provide proof of being vaccinated against COVID-19 in any indoor facility such as Columbia Icefield gym or the Field House.”
The University of Waterloo recently posted on social media that while there will soon be no mask or jab requirement to visit campus, the mandatory jab policy will be upheld for “all members of our community” to “continue to provide up to date information on their vaccine status.”
COVID jab mandates have split Canadian society.
The COVID jabs themselves have been linked to a multitude of negative and often severe side effects in children.
The COVID-19 injections approved for emergency use in Canada have been associated with severe side effects such as blood clots, rashes, miscarriages, and even heart attacks in young, healthy men.
They also have connections to cell lines derived from aborted babies. As a result of this, many Catholics and other Christians refuse to take them.
As stated by prominent physician Peter McCullough, M.D. “[For] people under 50 who fundamentally have no health risks, there’s no scientific rationale for them to ever become vaccinated” against COVID-19.
COVID-19 has extremely high survivability among most groups and studies show a minimal risk of asymptomatic spread. Research also indicates that post-infection natural immunity is far superior to vaccine-induced immunity.
