(LifeSiteNews) — The Justice Department has warned Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government that “zero tolerance vax-mandates” are not acceptable, and that people must be given the option to test instead, according to the Toronto Sun.
Just last week, Trudeau’s government declared that unvaccinated Members of Parliament (MP) would be barred from Canada’s House of Commons. Under the directive, democratically elected MPs and staff who haven’t taken an abortion-tainted jab would not be allowed to enter the federal government headquarters where they work for Canadian citizens.
A statement from the Board of Internal Economy, which is responsible for rules regarding the House of Commons, said: “Effective Monday, November 22, 2021, individuals must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to be allowed within the House of Commons Precinct.”
The board also stated that only those with rare medical contraindications that would prohibit them from being jabbed would qualify for exemptions. There were no stipulations given for religious or conscience objections.
“The federal Transportation department quietly announced that the vaccine mandate for air and rail travellers would have to be put off until December,” the Toronto Sun’s article said.
According to a Government of Canada website, “From October 30 to November 29, there will be a short transition period when travellers who don’t yet qualify as fully vaccinated will be able to travel if they can show a valid COVID-19 molecular test taken within 72 hours of travel.”
Just 20 days ago, Trudeau reiterated the prohibition against unvaccinated Canadians from boarding a plane or a train after October 31. No announcement has been made yet by the Prime Minister to acknowledge that the government has pushed its deadline back, and there is not yet an indication that they do not intend to push it back again.
The Toronto Sun article added that given the fact it’s legally dubious that that a Canadian citizen can be barred from traveling domestically on a government sanctioned service — such as federally regulated airlines — that “negative tests will likely have to be accepted in lieu” of proof of vaccination.
The Justice Center for Charter Freedoms (JCCF) has taken a strong stance against mandatory vaccinations that contradict basic Canadian Charter rights, such as the right to travel freely within the country. Recently, the JCCF sued the Ontario government over its draconian vaccine passport that denies unvaccinated tax-paying citizens from public services like ice-rinks that are paid for by the tax-payer.
It's official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.
We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden's tyrannical public coercion efforts.
Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.
On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine -- many against their will.
While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.
This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new "six-point plan" that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.
Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:
- A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
- A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
- A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
- A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
- A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
- A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
- A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)
All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers -- 2/3rds of the entire workforce!
And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.
While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half's worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.
And now, it would seem that time has officially come.
"This is not about freedom or personal choice," Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration's blatant dismissal of all Americans' right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.
This is a stunning reversal from Biden's declaration last December that "I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory."
In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states' rights in the process, warning that "If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way."
These are not the words of an "empathetic" leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden's tyranny is through mass noncompliance.
As we've said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.
But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people's jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.
This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.
Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Federal and provincial vaccine policies are jurisdictionally different, but it is the contention of the JCCF that mandates that supersede Charter-protected rights are “illegal,” and “ethically wrong.”
“When we get before the Court, we will be urging that they see these vaccine mandates for what they really do — which is take away the long-standing rights of citizens to make informed decisions about their own medical care,” the lawyers wrote.
JCCF lawyer Marty Moore told LifeSiteNews, “The Justice Centre has consistently argued that based the scientific data, vaccine mandates are unjustified violations of Canadians’ constitutional right to choose what to inject — or not inject — into their own bodies.”
“Government claims that mandatory vaccination is necessary to stop transmission are undermined by the fact that vaccinated individuals can still contract and transmit covid and by data showing that unvaccinated individuals who have recovered from Covid have superior protection than vaccinated persons,” the lawyer continued. “Federal or provincial governments that continue to ignore this information will have to answer it in court, where judges are required to determine whether in fact the governments’ restriction of Charter rights is ‘demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society.’”
Many European countries with vaccine mandates have adopted a Green Pass, which allows for citizens to access restricted services by providing a negative test or proof of immunity. Canada does not yet have this option. One Canadian travel and tourism executive anonymously told a LifeSiteNews reporter that it is believed that a “green pass” system will be coming to Canada for travel purposes.
