TORONTO, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) – Two high-profile politicians led a cry for freedom outside Canada’s iconic national broadcaster last week.
On Thursday, federal leader of the People’s Party of Canada Maxime Bernier, along with independent provincial member of parliament Randy Hillier, held a rally in front of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Broadcast Centre (CBC) in Toronto, to oppose the “unconstitutional” vaccine passports and mandates.
“You are here because you know, like me, that we cannot take for granted our freedoms anymore, and we are ready to do that fight [for freedom]!” Bernier stated in his address to the hundreds of supporters in attendance.
“That ideological fight, that common sense revolution, because we know that [what] the government is doing right now to us, with vaccine passport[s], mask mandate[s], it is unconstitutional, illegal, unfair, immoral, and we are saying ‘No!’ to that and ‘Yes!’ to freedom,” he added as the crowd cheered.
Bernier, who has been arrested for holding rallies in opposition to lockdowns and other COVID-19 measures, and who said he would go “to jail again” to fight for freedom, told those in attendance that there is “no reason” for the “segregation” of “unvaccinated” Canadians, as they pose no particular risk to those who have received the abortion-linked jabs.
He reminded the crowd that the “vaccinated” can still spread the virus, so measures that specifically target the “unvaccinated” are unnecessary
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccinated people can still spread and contract the virus, including the so-called “Delta variant” of the virus. For this reason, the CDC still recommends that even if a person is double-jabbed, they should be masking indoors to prevent transmission.
But even masking, in contrast with the CDC’s recommendation, has yet to show any “statistically significant” difference in COVID-19 cases between mask-wearers and non-mask-wearers, per a 2020 peer-reviewed study out of Denmark.
With the FDA's decision to officially approve the Pfizer COVID jab, calls to vaccinate schoolchildren and more university students will become louder and more insistent.
But, America's children and young people must be protected from unknown future side-effects of these drugs, and parents' rights must be respected!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which demands that COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities be prohibited in every U.S. state.
This petition will be sent to the leaders of every state legislature and to every governor in the United States, urging them to pass emergency legislation banning vaccine mandates for primary, secondary and university students.
Students simply have the right to be educated without being forced to violate deeply held principles and their own bodily integrity!
But, unfortunately, some private schools, like the Jesuit-run Brophy College Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, have already mandated the COVID vaccine for their students, in spite of massive parental opposition. If parents or students reject the vaccine, students face intrusive weekly testing and exclusion from extra-curricular activities.
Also, more and more universities have actually started to disenroll unvaccinated students. But, even where that is not happening, not taking the vaccine often subjects students to masking, extra testing and additional administrative obstacles.
And now, with the Pfizer jab approval, Joe Biden's Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, is threatening more mandates.
While it is true that the FDA approval for the Pfizer jab only pertains to those over 16 years of age, the pharmaceutical industry and some state actors have been pushing to get approval for pre-teens!
So, it stands to reason that the Federal government will try to impose vaccines on schools, for those 16 and over, as well as on all university students. But, eventually, such mandates could even apply to younger and younger schoolchildren.
That's why state legislatures and governors must fight back against any attempt to coerce school students to take a COVID vaccine against their will!
Science and logic should dictate public health policy. And both say that mandatory vaccination for children and university students is not only unnecessary, but very likely dangerous for the future health of America's youth.
The CDC reports that the rates of death, injury, and hospitalization are very, very low for children and adolescents and that COVID transmission in schools, both from student to staff and between students, is also very low.
And a European CDC study concluded that "no evidence has been found to suggest that children or educational settings are primary drivers of COVID transmission."
So, right now, we know that schoolchildren are at very low risk of becoming very ill as a result of COVID, or of even transmitting the virus.
But, we don't know how a hastily-prepared, unstudied vaccine will affect the health of millions of America's youth in the future.
Gambling with their future, and the future of our nation, should not even be entertained for one second!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging state legislatures to ban COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities - both public and private. Urge them to respect parents' rights, informed consent and bodily integrity.

Bernier went on to slam Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, recalling the prime minister’s recent statements demonizing and threatening Canadians who have still not received one of the experimental COVID-19 injections.
“’If they don’t take the two shots, if they don’t have their vaccine passport, there will be consequences’ that’s what you [Trudeau] said to them! I know what you said to them!” Bernier said, paraphrasing Trudeau’s discriminatory comments towards the unvaccinated.
“You said to them [the unvaccinated] ‘If you don’t take your two shots, I will punish you’, but Mr. Trudeau, we will punish you the 20th of September!” he added, referencing the September 20 federal election.
On the topic of vaccine passports – which are already in effect in Quebec, Manitoba, and British Columbia, and are coming into effect in Ontario, Alberta, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan – Bernier expressed his fundamental opposition to the introduction of a vaccine caste system in Canadian society.
“[We don’t want to live] in a country where you need to show your papers to participate in civil society, we don’t want that,” Bernier exclaimed.
Talking about his party, Bernier reassured Canadians that if he is elected prime minister, he will be in Ottawa (Canada’s capital) to “put Canadians first”, but either way, he will continue joining Canadians “in the street” to protest for their freedoms.
Bernier’s party, the People’s Party of Canada, is currently the only major federal party standing in opposition to what constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati has called the “illegal” and “unconstitutional” measures implemented in response to the so-called COVID-19 pandemic.
