WINNIPEG, Manitoba, July 27, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Manitoba’s Premier said only those who have had two COVID-19 jabs will be allowed the “extra privileges” to access popular businesses such as cinemas and museums.

“Yes, people who get double vaccinated have additional advantages in this short-term period, we’re trying to do that, of course, to be safe and to encourage others to do the same,” the province’s Premier Brian Pallister recently told reporters at a news conference.

Pallister was joined by Manitoba Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Brent Roussin to announce the new COVID-19 rules in the province.

Under those new rules, only people who have been “fully vaccinated” will be allowed to go to professional sporting events, movie theaters, casinos, and galleries, which have all been closed since last fall.

Opening to everyone will be churches at 50 percent capacity or 150 people, whichever is lower, with masks required. Restaurants, libraries, days camps, and stores are also allowed to operate with higher capacity limits.

Canadian civil liberties lawyer James Kitchen told LifeSiteNews that Manitoba’s move to exclude individuals who have declined to receive COVID injections is “repugnant.”

“One of the positive social realties of a society that is actually free, and therefore also equal, is that everyone is able to participate generally in public life by attending cultural events and facilities,” said Kitchen. He added that the new rules are akin to the “hallmarks” of an “authoritarian or dystopian society” in the “segregation of a class of people because of their status, be it immutable characteristics such as race or gender, or fundamental personal choices such as religious belief or health choices.”

Pallister claimed that those who are not vaccinated will still benefit “as well,” saying “special circumstances around being able to go to a movie or a Bomber game if you’re double vaccinated are extra privileges.”

Roussin claimed that the current rules are only for the interim, but would not say when all restrictions will be lifted.

It is not clear from the government press release how businesses will determine one’s COVID-19 jab status. One possibility could be to use the province’s recently launched form of vaccine proof, which one can attain in digital form.

In the late spring, Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister officially launched the province’s immunization card program for those who have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Kitchen told LifeSiteNews that if Manitoba’s government does not provide exceptions to what he calls a “vaccine passport” on grounds of “religion, mental disability, and physical disability,” it will most likely contravene human rights legislation and equality protections guaranteed by section 15 of Canada’s Charter of rights and freedoms, “and freedom of conscience and religion as protected by section 2(a) of the Charter.”

Many women who choose to undergo a medical abortion procedure (Mifegymiso in Canada) change their minds having taken the first pill.

And now, a safe and effective procedure called abortion pill reversal has been developed to assist these women in an attempt to help them save their pre-born child from the effects of this first pill (Mifepristone).

Abortion advocates are currently engaged in a campaign to silence the message that Alliance for Life Ontario is providing women undergoing a medical abortion in Canada, including even calling facts “mis-information”.

Our message is that there is a safe, effective (64%-68%) method that may save their child if they have second thoughts after starting the Mifegymiso process.

That's why Alliance for Life Ontario and LifeSiteNews are now partnering on this petition: To give Canadian women a second chance at choice!

Abortion Pill Reversal is being offered around the world with 2,000 little ones saved to-date.

But, in Canada, abortion advocates do not want women to have a second chance at choice! Alliance for Life Ontario's Facebook page has been taken down after erroneous complaints, and now their website abortionpillreversal.ca is being attacked.

Women deserve to know the truth about this second chance at choice and to know there are physicians trained and willing to help them try and save their child, if that is their choice.

We need your help to let the Minister of Health know that Canadian women do not give up their right to the truth when they choose induced abortion.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition today! Thank you.

“Even without exemptions, such a policy infringes the rights to liberty and privacy under sections 7 and 8 of the Charter because it ‘outs’ and penalizes people for deeply personal health choices,” said Kitchen.

As of July 6, 75 percent of Manitobans have had a first dose of the COVID-19 jab, and half the population are fully vaccinated.
