(LifeSiteNews) — An Ontario Superior Court Judge has sided with a mother who sought to protect her children from being jabbed with the experimental COVID jab against their will, and acknowledged that children can be harmed by the jabs.

The Honorable Mr. Justice Alex Pazaratz offered his judgement on February 22 regarding a Family Court case between J.N. and C.G. with Court File No.: 987/18 where the father wanted to have his kids jabbed with the COVID shot and sought to prove the mother was “perpetuating COVID-related conspiracy theories and vaccine hesitancy” to the children. The children, who were identified as L.E.G. and M.D.G., are 10 and 12 years old.

It was the father’s opinion that the mother should do what Canadian health officials have recommended, but the judge disagreed with the father’s reasoning and offered a scathing critique of his arguments and the state of free expression in Canada.

“When did it become illegal to ask questions?” Justice Pazaratz wrote. “Especially in the courtroom?”

He began the judgement by asking if the term “‘misinformation’ is even a real word … Or has it become a crass, self-serving tool to pre-empt scrutiny and discredit your opponent?”

He castigated the use of the term “misinformation” and called its usage “childish” and “sinister.”

The judge did not mention Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by name, but called foul on the rhetoric that Trudeau has used: “How did we lower our guard and let the words ‘unacceptable beliefs’ get paired together? In a democracy? On the Scales of Justice?”

The demonizing and punishment of “anyone who disagrees … [drives] polarization, disrespect, and simmering anger …” He called this tactic an “odious trend … rapidly corrupting modern social discourse,” that “seems to be working for politicians.”

Considering the statements and evidence put forth by both parents, Pazarats wrote: “The mother’s evidence focused entirely on the medical and scientific issues.”

He acknowledged in his ruling the list of potential side effects for children by citing data about side-effects related to the Pfizer jab: “Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) have occurred in some people who have received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine. In most of these people, symptoms began within a few days following receipt of the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.”

“It’s very hard to fault a parent for being worried about such an ominous list of potentially very serious side effects,” he wrote.

He contrasted the mother’s evidence-based concerns with those of the father. “[T]he father focussed extensively on labelling and discrediting the mother as a person, in a dismissive attempt to argue that her views aren’t worthy of consideration.”

The judge provided a summary of the father’s affidavits, which were mostly bits of information concerning her affiliation with the People’s Party of Canada.

“How is any of this relevant?” asked the judge. “Have we reached the stage where parental rights are going to be decided based on what political party you belong to?”

“Even though the father may not admit it, this is still a free country and people can say what they want.”

Pazaratz intimated that this sort of mentality has even found its way into the court room: “We’re seeing more and more of this type of intolerance, vilification and dismissive character assassination in family court. Presumably we’re seeing it inside the courtroom because it’s rampant outside the courtroom.”

The crux of the dispute between the parents, according to the judge, is that “[b]oth children have sufficient age, intelligence, maturity and independence of thought to understand the issue and formulate their own views, feelings, comfort level, questions, and fears about what should or should not happen to their bodies.”

He called out the father’s reluctance to admit that his children and their mother had good reasons for their stance: “In this case, the father doesn’t like what the children are saying, so he submits their views aren’t worthy of consideration — just as he submits the mother’s views aren’t worthy of consideration.”

The judge contrasted the information provided by both parents, and clearly sided with the mother’s submission over the father’s. While the judge did not pick sides concerning whether or not COVID jabs are good for kids — which he made clear is not his job — he evaluated the types of arguments the parents made and found the mother’s to be measured and insightful.

The mother submitted articles and studies that cited COVID experts Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough. About the two doctors he said that due to their credentials, they “can hardly be dismissed as a crackpot or fringe …”

UPDATE (2/7/2022):

Since launching our petition in support of the Freedom Convoy truckers less than one week ago, we've managed to obtain more than 65,000 signatures from freedom-loving people in every corner of the world!


This is an excellent show of support for the international cause of freedom from intrusive medical mandates, but Canada's truckers still find themselves a foremost target of their government, at both the federal and, now, local levels.

In fact, Mayor Jim Watson has even instituted an entirely unnecessary and politically-motivated "state of emergency" in Ottawa simply due to the truckers' presence there.

So if you haven't already, please SIGN this important petition, which calls on Prime Minister Trudeau and his pro-mandate allies to acknowledge the medical autonomy of working people by reversing course in the federal strategy to combat Covid.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________



Canadian truckers are fighting back against Justin Trudeau's Covid overreach and medical tyranny, and are giving people across the country -- and the world -- a new voice for freedom!

These truckers, like millions of other Canadians, have been subjected to unprecedented medical coercion, manipulation, and intimidation on behalf of Trudeau's liberal government, and, with their livelihoods on the line, they have risen to meet the moment by bringing their cause directly to Ottawa in the form of a massive Freedom Convoy!

But, unsurprisingly, they are still being met with resistance by extreme politicians who wish to exercise complete control over these truckers' -- and all Canadians' -- medical autonomy, which is why we're asking you to show your support for these brave, hardworking men and women by adding your name and your voice to their cause.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to back off these truckers, change course in his approach to Covid, and support the medical autonomy of the truckers and all working Canadians going forward.

Like millions of Canadian workers across the country, truckers are being required by Justin Trudeau's Liberal government to get the experimental Covid-19 vaccine, or face a 14-day quarantine period if and when they cross the border into the United States to make their deliveries.

These truckers were categorized as "essential workers" (which they most certainly are) during the worst days of the Covid crisis, when lockdowns were the universal norm and millions of people were forced out of their jobs and offices. Even so, they remained on the job through it all, ensuring that essentials were available to people in every corner of the country, even when some businesses were shut down and strict rules were in place that made something as simple as grocery shopping a challenge for millions.

In fact, Prime Minister Trudeau went out of his way to compliment these men and women back in March of 2020, tweeting the following:

While many of us are working from home, there are others who aren’t able to do that - like the truck drivers who are working day and night to make sure our shelves are stocked. So when you can, please #ThankATrucker for everything they’re doing and help them however you can.

In fact, But just yesterday, Trudeau went on the record at a press conference labeling these truckers everything from "racists" to "Nazis" in a simply stunning reversal from his earlier comments.

So why the sudden change in attitude from the Prime Minister?

Because, as it turns out, these truckers are refusing to sit idly by while their rights -- and the rights of millions of working Canadians -- remain under attack like never before, and they are standing up to Trudeau and challenging his government's radical medical tyranny head-on.

With their livelihoods on the line, these truckers decided it was time to take action.

This past weekend, the #FreedomConvoy led a 50-mile-long caravan of what's estimated to be thousands of truckers from across Canada to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, where they staged a monumental demonstration to protest Trudeau's vaccination mandate.

In addition, truckers from across the United States (who are similarly fighting to preserve their own medical freedoms against a power-hungry federal government) also joined the Freedom Convoy to stand in solidarity with their neighbors to the north.

This massive, now-international movement to restore the individual rights of these truckers and all working people after nearly two years' worth of lockdowns, mandates, and vast government overreach and infringement is taking Ottawa -- and all of Canada -- by storm.

Look no further than the trucker's GoFundMe, which has raised $10 million in support of their cause -- more than what was raised by either of Canada's two major political parties during the last financial quarter of 2021.

The grassroots are clearly on their side (and the side of freedom), but even so, Trudeau remains unmoved...

He has dismissed the truckers and their supporters as a "small fringe," and has even accused the organizers of the Freedom Convoy and its participants of holding "unacceptable views."


But Justin Trudeau is wrong: These hardworking men and women are not racists or Nazis, and they are certainly not a fringe group -- they are patriotic, freedom-loving Canadians who refuse to stand down when being faced with egregious medical tyranny on the federal government's part, and who are using their constitutional right(s) to freedom of speech and expression to be a unified voice for millions of others faced with similar medical mandates.

And they need our support.


So please, take a few minutes now to SIGN and SHARE this important petition asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reverse course by supporting these truckers (and all working Canadians) by abandoning intrusive, unconstitutional vaccination mandates for working people going forward.

This petition will be delivered, in person, to both Prime Minister Trudeau and the leaders of the Freedom Convoy.

Let's show Justin Trudeau, once and for all, that the desire to live and work freely is not just limited to a "small fringe," but rather the inherent right of ALL Canadians and their millions of backers from across the globe -- including YOU!

Thank you!

“I am not for one moment suggesting that we should presume the mother’s experts are right. But once we determine they’re not crackpots and charlatans, how can we presume that they are wrong? Or that they couldn’t possibly be right about any of their warnings? When children’s lives are at stake, how can we ignore credible warnings?”

The information provided by the father about why he believed his kids should be jabbed against their will was a litany of publications from the provincial and federal government. The judge was not persuaded by this attempt.

Referring to a drug testing scandal that was used in family court for years, he wrote: “Did the Motherisk inquiry teach us nothing about blind deference to ‘experts’?  Thousands of child protection cases were tainted — and lives potentially ruined — because year after year courts routinely accepted and acted upon substance abuse testing which turned out to be incompetent.”

“[T]hroughout history, the people who held government to account have always been regarded as heroes — not subversives. When our government serially pays out billions of dollars to apologize for unthinkable historic violations of human rights and security — how can we possibly presume that today’s government ‘experts’ are infallible?”

Near the end of his scathing critique of blind obedience to government experts and the divisive politicking common in Canada today, he called out the inconsistency of the Canadian government health authorities regarding COVID.

“During the past two years of the pandemic, governments around the world — and within Canada — have constantly changed their health directives about what we should or shouldn’t be doing. What works and what doesn’t,” he wrote. “Government experts sound so sure of themselves in recommending the current vaccines. But they were equally sure when they told us to line up for AstraZeneca. Now they don’t even mention that word … But how can judges take judicial notice of ‘facts’ where there’s no consensus or consistency?”

He finished with a postscript stating: “It’s irrelevant to my decision and it’s none of anyone’s business. But I am fully vaccinated. My choice. I mention this because I am acutely aware of how polarized the world has become. We should all return to discussing the issues rather than making presumptions about one another.”
