SYDNEY, Australia (LifeSiteNews) – The new Australian premier won’t free his state from COVID-19 restrictions until 80% of residents accept two of the experimental COVID-19 jabs. 

In a statement released on the 7th October, newly-elected New South Wales (NSW) Premier Dominic Perrottet announced that, although he will lift many of the restrictions placed on those living in the state, freedoms will still be tied to vaccinations. 

Prior to his appointment as NSW Premier, conservative Catholic Dominic Perrottet distinguished himself as one of the highest-ranking members of the Liberal Party to publicly challenge the draconian public health orders enforced by NSW Chief Health Officer, Dr Kerry Chant. 

Medical health experts from around the world have repeatedly warned that the experimental COVID vaccines do not protect individuals from contracting the virus, do not prevent individuals from spreading the virus to others, and only serve to weaken the individual’s natural immunity – among other potentially life-threatening long term conditions. In addition, according to VAERS data, the adverse effects to the COVID vaccines have caused more injuries and deaths than the virus. 

Nevertheless, many governments and corporations remain united in their imposition of mandatory vaccines as a condition of employment or to be permitted access to public and private services. This includes medical care, education, construction, transportation and retail services.

The Knights of Columbus in Quebec have apparently begun to pressurize and bully unvaccinated council members and officers who decline to take the COVID jab.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the Quebec Knights of Columbus, urging the Catholic men's fraternal organization to reverse course and stop penalizing Knights who refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.

According to a letter obtained by LifeSiteNews, the leaders of the Quebec State Council of the Knights have seemingly implemented the following restrictions on unvaccinated members: 1) Effective immediately, unvaccinated knights shall be refused access to meeting and social venues; and, 2) Effective November 15th, any officer not "fully vaccinated" shall be relieved of his duties.

If true (and, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate), this Quebec Knights' policy is not only deeply flawed, but also deeply disturbing.

Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that a Catholic may use his or her conscience to decide to licitly refuse vaccination.

And, while the Church is allowing Catholics to take these unethical vaccines because of the lack of an ethically produced and tested vaccine, it must noted that the Church IS AGAINST FORCED VACCINATION and vaccine mandates.

Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how a Catholic organization can penalize (and, in effect, try to coerce) Catholics to accept vaccines which have many morally and medically troubling aspects.

To start with, all COVID vaccines available to Knights Quebecois were either developed or tested using aborted fetal cell lines! This very fact should militate against penalizing Knights who cannot accept these jabs, in good conscience, as morally repugnant per se.

And, there are at least three other serious issues with the vaccines, namely:

  1. The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
  2. The vaccines do not effectively stop transmission, and, in fact, probably facilitate transmission by allowing a vaccinated person to carry a large viral load which they can then spread to vaccinated and unvaccinated, alike.
  3. It is unwise to take and promote vaccines which have not undergone sufficient testing (animal, and otherwise), and which have no track record for possible long-term negative complications. Whereas most vaccines have taken between six and ten years to be fully tested and approved, these COVID jabs have only been given for less than a year -- and so, we do not know what the long-term effects will be.

With these issues in mind, please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on the Quebec Knights of Columbus State Council to reverse the draconian restrictions being placed against unvaccinated Knights.

The Quebec Knights of Columbus should be prepared to make reasonable accommodations for those members and officers who have decided to refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.

After signing, please take a few minutes to contact the Quebec Knights of Columbus to politely, but firmly, ask them to reverse this decision which could seriously impinge on their fellow Knights' ability to follow their consciences in relation to taking a COVID vaccine.

In a recent statement, Perrottet announced that he will be alleviating many of the restrictions placed on those living in the state, such as schools closures. However, Perrottet also stated that “All roadmap freedoms at 70 and 80 percent will continue to be for fully vaccinated people only,” dashing initial hopes for political change. 

 “Vaccinations are the key to life returning to normal and the changes today will help family and friends reconnect, get kids back to school and get businesses back up and running sooner,” the new Premier said.  

“NSW is putting in the hard yards, and it’s important people continue to turn out in droves to be vaccinated.” 


Prior to his appointment as New South Wales Premier, Perrottet hinted he would bring about immediate economic reform and the end of draconian public health orders. This included indefinite lockdowns, the restrictions on businesses or places of worship, and mandatory vaccinations. 

When NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant suggested the initial extension of lockdowns in Sydney, Perrottet is reported to have responded that Chant and other government officials should sacrifice their own salaries in solidarity with the Australians they were forcing into bankruptcy. 

In New South Wales, disgraced former Premier Gladys Berejiklian was responsible for the enforcement of draconian lockdowns and vaccine mandates. 

Prior to Berejiklian’s shocking resignation due to a corruption investigation, United Australia Party founder Clive Palmer stated in a press conference he believed that Berejiklian was “being directed by a lobbyist in Sydney who is being paid by Astrazeneca and by Pfizer tens of millions of dollars to get these policies through and to make sure the vaccine is pushed.” 

 Supporters of Perrottet argue that Perrottet’s hands are tied, that he is working within the limitations of the previous administration and the directives of the federal government. 

 In addition, supporters argue that Perrottet does not have the authority to override Public Health Orders in response to national emergencies which, according to the Australian constitution, takes legal precedence.  

Critics of lockdowns and vaccine mandates argue that COVID does not constitute a national emergency, therefore the enforcement of unjust and disproportionate Public Health Orders violate their individual human rights. 

Since the outbreak of COVID, the Australian state of New South Wales has recorded 457 recorded deaths, with critics arguing that indefinite lockdowns and the adverse reactions caused by vaccines have caused more damage than the virus itself.
