Editor’s correction: The original version of this article incorrectly stated that Maxime Bernier is the only federal party leader to consistently oppose COVID mandates, gender ideology and euthanasia expansion laws. However, the Christian Heritage Party and its leader Rod Taylor also oppose the aforementioned policies. This article was updated on January 31 to amend this error.
(LifeSiteNews) — Maxime Bernier, the outspoken leader of the People’s Party of Canada, said Canadians should not forget how the COVID jabs were not as effective as promised by the government and how injection mandates resulted in discrimination against the vaccine free.
“Time to remind everyone that the ‘vaccine’ never prevented the transmission of the virus,” Bernier tweeted Friday.
Bernier then spared no words in blasting the “tyrannical governments” in Canada for going after those who chose not to get the jabs with draconian COVID mandates.
“Passports, travel restrictions, layoffs of unvaxxed workers, and other authoritarian covid measures were just a power trip on the part of our tyrannical governments,” he wrote.
The COVID shots were and still are promoted heavily by all levels of government in Canada as necessary to deal with COVID despite the virus having spread to virtually every corner of the country.
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.
Chief Public Health Officer of Canada Theresa Tam said last Friday that Canadians should get their sixth booster shot to deal with a surge of COVID.
However, mounting evidence shows that the mRNA-based jabs approved for use in Canada and the U.S. do not stop the spread of the virus.
There have been countless reports of many high-profile current and former world leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who have had COVID multiple times despite being boosted.
At a recent hearing in the European Parliament, a Pfizer executive admitted that the company never tested to see if their mRNA jabs would stop the transmission of the virus.
Also, in 2021, many nations with the highest jab rates also had the largest number of COVID infections and deaths.
As for Bernier, he has been one of just two federal political leaders – the other being Rod Taylor of the Christian Heritage Party – to consistently speak out against radical gender theory being promoted in Canada, COVID mandates, and the liberalization of the nation’s euthanasia laws.
He chose not to get the COVID jabs and throughout the COVID crisis called out government overreach.
Bernier was also a strong supporter of the Freedom Convoy, which at this time last year saw thousands of Canadians descend upon Ottawa to call for an end to all COVID mandates.
In September 2022, Bernier thanked all Canadian “freedom fighters” who protested against COVID mandates of all kinds after a federal travel jab mandate for air travel was dropped.
Bernier, along with the former premier of Newfoundland Brian Peckford, are currently fighting COVID travel mandates with the help of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms in federal court.
Bernier and Peckford’s case has gone to an appeal after a judge last October said the case was “moot” as the mandates had been lifted.
As for the COVID shots, they come with many negative health side effects, as government officials were forced to admit.
Indeed, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released COVID vaccine safety data that shows “highly concerning” proof of adverse effects stemming from the jabs.
Dr. Peter McCullough has said that the COVID jabs have caused a wave of “vaccine-induced myocarditis.”
The Canadian government has invested millions in domestic COVID jab experimentation.
LifeSiteNews reported last week that a new experimental “adenoviral-vectored” trial COVID vaccine, which can be inhaled rather than injected and was in part developed with abortion-tainted cell lines, will soon enter phase two of human trials in Canada.
LifeSiteNews also reported last week on the Canadian COVID Care Alliance (CCCA), which released a video series highlighting stories of those harmed by the experimental
