City of Toronto ad promoting COVID vaccines for childrenScreenshot/Twitter

TORONTO (LifeSiteNews) – There was a public outcry after the  City of Toronto’s social media team posted an ad that suggested children who aren’t jabbed with an experimental COVID jab should be jabbed before playing with other kids.

A series of videos was uploaded on September 20 but then deleted within hours following a backlash from both the media and public.

The Toronto Sun reported that City of Toronto spokesman Brad Ross admitted that the city had made a mistake and that they can “do better.”

Ross also said that his team “missed the mark” with the videos, which he said were part of an effort to promote vaccination to groups who have “hesitancy about vaccines.” Most of the people in the ads belonged to ethnic minorities.  Meanwhile, the videos were not about vaccines in general, but COVID jabs, which have been shown to pose grave dangers for children, even resulting in death in some cases.

The video that got the most attention was a video portraying a young girl stuck inside, suggesting that she could not play outside with other kids because of her  vaccination status.

The young girl in the ad asks, “Mom, can I go outside and play with my friends?” Her mother says she cannot because “there is still something going around.”

As the girl looks longingly out the window at children enjoying their childhood, text appears on the screen that says: “Kids should be out there. Not in here.”

The words “COVID-19 vaccines available for children 6 month to 12 years”  then flash on the screen, in what was clearly an attempt by the city to suggest to the public that only children who have taken the COVID jab should mingle freely.

The Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) failed spectacularly at resisting the initial COVID lockdowns and vaccine mandates that were imposed by the government on freedom-loving Canadians.

Most CPC MPs subserviently complied with Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party in creating a police-state where our Charter Rights were regularly violated, but now Pierre Poilievre would have us believe they have turned a corner and nothing like it will ever happen again. 

How can they rebuild our trust? Well, they can start by owning up to their terrible mistakes. 

SIGN: The CPC must apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID regime.

You will remember how freedom-loving Canadians were abandoned by the CPC, with Erin O'Toole calling for vaccine passports and most CPC MPs pearl-clutching about "vaccine hesitancy".

That was until the party realized how popular the Truckers' Convoy had become and got behind the movement. 

It's quite possible the CPC would still be mute on vaccine mandates and lockdowns were it not for the heroic Freedom Convoy that converged on Ottawa. 

Let's not forget the businesses, churches, schools and universities that were shuttered for months on end because of the COVID hysteria generated by politicians in Ottawa, and the CPC did nothing.

They did nothing when people started losing their livelihoods (with some Canadians even losing their lives to suicide) because of the government's deranged policy of locking people down.

The CPC must show they have learned a lesson from the COVID tyranny Canadians needlessly suffered and that they contributed to.

SIGN: Demand the CPC apologize for abandoning Canadians to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

In yet another reminder of how disconnected from reality the CPC were, MPs like Leslyn Lewis, Marilyn Gladu and Rosemarie Falk were omitted from their "Shadow Cabinet" in November 2021 because they dared to question the COVID shots.

Canadians must still contend with vaccine mandates in some settings and the intrusive ArriveCAN system in order to re-enter the country, while we are among the last three countries in the world to continue discriminating against unvaccinated visitors who remain barred from entering. 

As Pierre Poilievre takes the reigns of the CPC, conservative voters must demand an apology from the party that abandoned them during the COVID-hysteria of the past two years. 

SIGN: The CPC can rebuild trust by apologizing for capitulating to Trudeau's COVID tyranny.

True North conservative journalist, Andrew Lawton posted saved copies of the videos, criticizing them as “manipulative.”

“Here’s the manipulative ad pushing vaccination on children that the City of Toronto published then deleted today,” he wrote in his first tweet of a thread wherein he posted copies of all the ads pulled down.

The next ad in the thread shows a baby in a crib being talked to through what appears to be a FaceTime call, and a grandmother states: “When can we see her? We would love to see her.”

Text then appears on the screen suggesting you could connect with infant family members “IRL” (in real life) with infant vaccination information posted on screen.

Lawton added: “This video isn’t a one-off. It’s part of a multi-part campaign. In this video, the City of Toronto suggests you should keep family members from your infant unless the infant is vaccinated.”

Another ad shows a working mother’s important virtual meeting interrupted by a child who, had she been vaccinated against COVID, would have been at school. A subsequent video shows a child studying at home alone because he is not vaccinated.

There is no requirement for children to be vaccinated against COVID to attend school in Ontario.

The final ad in the series shows a young boy on a smart phone trying to communicate with a friend but cannot due to bad connection.

Text appears on screen: “Human connections are stronger than internet connections.”
