CANADA (LifeSiteNews) – Independent Canadian MP Derek Sloan has called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s politicization of COVID-19 vaccines as a “criminal” election ploy.
“It’s clear that the Liberals will say or do anything to win a few votes and Justin Trudeau just a few months ago called vaccine passports a divisive issue. It is clear that they are willing to turn on a dime to anything, to gain them power,” Sloan told LifeSiteNews.
Sloan’s remarks were a direct rebuke to a recent COVID-19 jab mandate announced last week by the federal government under Trudeau.
Last Friday, Canada’s Transport Minister Omar Alghabra said the government of Canada will require employees in the federally regulated “air, rail and marine transportation sectors” as well as all civil servants to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Alghabra also noted all domestic travelers by air, boat, or rail would not be able to travel without being jabbed.
The COVID-19 jab mandate was made only days before Trudeau called a federal election. Canadians go to the polls on September 20 of this year.
Trudeau recently said there would be “consequences” for federally employed public servants who choose to not get COVID-19 jabs.
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Sloan told LifeSiteNews that mandating COVID-19 vaccines is “an egregious assault on people’s bodily autonomy.”
“It goes against the principles of the Nuremberg code, which requires you know informed consent on every level without any coercion or that type of thing, and it’s wrong, it’s simply wrong, and it’s not required by the health necessities of our nation,” Sloan told LifeSiteNews.
“We are not seeing a dramatic increase in deaths or hospital usage or anything like this, there are many other treatments for COVID that seem to work very well that are not available to Canadians, but easily could be. It’s a shame, it’s basically criminal.”
In a video posted to his Facebook page on Tuesday, Sloan said it was an “absolute disgrace” that Trudeau is going to try and mandate COVID-19 jabs for civil workers and for domestic travel.
“This is extraordinarily unacceptable from our prime minister,” said Sloan in the video.
“Someone has, must have the right to say yes or no. But it shouldn’t be purchased at a price. They shouldn’t have to say yes, but only because they’re going to lose their job if they say no, they shouldn’t say yes, but only because they’ve had their arm twisted so far, they want to say yes. This is not in any way informed consent. This is wrong.”
Sloan mentioned in his video that there is “no medical reason why we need to force every man, woman, and child to be vaccinated.”
“It is wrong to force people to take medical treatments that they don’t want to, it is wrong to force them to lose their job if they don’t do it. And there is no there’s no true rationale for preventing people from flying on airplanes if they’re not vaccinated. If you believe the vaccine works as well as they say it does, and there are good arguments to suggest that maybe it doesn’t. If it does, then those people who are vaccinated are basically protected,” said Sloan.
Canada’s 48-year-old Leader of the Opposition and Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) Erin O’Toole said that he backs mandating vaccination for domestic travelers by air, rail, or sea. However, O’Toole did say if elected he would allow the unvaccinated to submit to rapid tests.
O’Toole booted Sloan booted from the CPC in January.
In his video, Sloan said he is “disgusted to see Justin Trudeau use this as an election tactic,” but is also “disgusted to see the other parties not pushing back against this.”
Constitutional groups have blasted Trudeau’s travel and work COVID-19 jab mandate, likening them to what a “totalitarian society looks like.”
“This is what a totalitarian society looks like, restriction of information (Bill C-36 for example), restrictions on the right to travel and cross-regional boundaries, and segregation and persecution of dissenters,” Interim President and lawyer for the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) Lisa Bildy told LifeSiteNews.
The Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) has also come out against vaccine passports and mandates, saying the requirement “crosses a bright line.”
“Canadians should not have to demonstrate their vaccination status to travel to see their family members. The policy is unjustified in light of Canada’s rates of vaccination, one of the highest in the world. It creates the absurdity that Canadians will be subject to more stringent requirements to travel from Calgary to Vancouver than from Toronto to Paris,” says the CCF.
Sloan currently serves as the MP for the Ontario riding of Hastings–Lennox–Addington. Since becoming an Independent MP, he has come out strongly against COVID-19 lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and government overreach. He has also repeatedly stated without fear his pro-life and family views.
Rumors are swirling that Sloan will be running as an independent MP in Alberta for the 2021 election. Sloan had earlier started a new “explicitly pro-life” federal political party in Canada to take the country “back.”
Sloan’s new party is rumored to be called the True North Party of Canada. However, it did not receive approval from Elections Canada before the election was called, a source confirmed with LifeSiteNews.
People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier has publicly stated he will not take a COVID-19 vaccine. Bernier is the only federal party leader who has come out strongly against mandatory vaccination and vaccine passports.

Health Canada has authorized four COVID-19 vaccines for adults, all with connections to cells derived from aborted babies. All four have also been associated with severe side effects such as blood clots, rashes, miscarriages, and even heart attacks in young healthy men.
