(LifeSiteNews) – A group of nearly 5,000 public service employees in the Canadian province of Alberta joined forces to demand that COVID jab mandates be “rescinded immediately.”
“We are vaccinated and unvaccinated Alberta Public Servants and family supporters of the Alberta Public Service, from all government ministries and departments, standing together against the Government of Alberta employee covid vaccine mandate,” said the group called MyAPSChoice.
“We respectfully request that the vaccine mandate be rescinded immediately. We legally oppose the administration and enforcement of such unlawful employer-to-employee actions.”
MyAPSChoice has retained the legal services of Rath & Company to help fight the provincial government of Premier Jason Kenney for mandating all civil servants to be jabbed or be fired.
The group has also written an open letter to Ray Gilmore, the Deputy Minister of Executive Council with the Alberta Public Service Commission, saying that mandating jabs is an “unlawful order is not enforceable.”
“Whether or not our deep personal concerns are rooted in our individual legal, ethical, moral or spiritual beliefs, we are unanimous in our view that the Government of Alberta Public Service and Alberta Health Services vaccine mandate policy – is the wrong and inappropriate alternative to overcoming COVID19,” the group’s open letter states.
The group also wrote that “Harassment and discrimination in the workplace is unacceptable,” and that “Consent cannot be coerced,” as “Vaccinations are not always safe” and not the “sole solution to COVID19 safety.”
“Both Dr. Hinshaw and Dr. Yiu have violated this requirement in promulgating CMOH Orders or AHS Directives that vitiate consent by coercing citizens, AHS Health Care Workers and Public employees through coercive mandates to be injected against their will on pain of loss of livelihood or loss of basic rights to participate in social gatherings in public businesses or elsewhere in Alberta,” the group wrote.
“The forced injection of anyone without their consent is a gross violation of the most basic medical ethics. The GoA has no right or ability to impose medical procedures that do not meet the most BASIC STANDARDS OF CARE upon public employees.”
The Alberta provincial government under Kenney has mandated that all public service workers must be jabbed by November 30 or risk losing their job. Workers are allowed to provide negative COVID tests but at their own expense.
Alberta Health Services (AHS) under Deena Hinshaw, the province’s top doctor, has also mandated that all of its workers be jabbed by month’s end.
MyAPSChoice states that in its view the Kenney vaccine mandate policy is a “violation of the Canadian Charter, Criminal Code and Human Rights.”
“Through this policy, you are coercing and compelling your employees to consent under duress, on threat of adverse employment action, to make the inherently personal choice of what medical treatments to take. Leadership has no authority to order an unlawful act,” the group wrote.
“The alternatives to the vaccine, such as regular testing, are cost prohibitive and also privacy intrusive. Many GoA public servants have legitimate medical and religious exemptions that are personal and should not have to be exposed. Canadian law has long recognized individuals’ rights to personal autonomy and bodily integrity, which in our view this policy directly violates.”
MyAPSChoice’s open letter also states that the Kenney government vaccine mandate policy “ignores existing natural immunity.”
“The policy does not recognize the enhanced immunity possessed by individuals who have already had a COVID 19 infection. Nor does the policy recognize numerous home-based health prevention treatments that are as (scientifically validated) effective as vaccines. In such circumstances, imposing a vaccination requirement on those who have already been exposed to, and recovered from COVID19, or are adhering to a prevention regime – adds nothing to an individual’s GoA workplace safety,” the group wrote.
“The policy creates a false sense of security. Those vaccinated are being led to incorrectly believe they are immune and as a consequence are contracting COVID19 on a daily basis and spreading it to others. It has been scientifically verified that the vaccinated and the unvaccinated can both spread COVID19 in equal measure, as members of both groups carrying the same high viral loads when infected, according to data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). A recent report from Director of the CDC confirmed this hypothesis in October 2021.”
The open letter currently has just under 1,000 signatures.
Group questions ‘experimental’ nature of COVID jabs
In its open letter, MyAPSChoice stated that the COVID jabs policy is “particularly egregious” considering the approved jabs in Canada are still “appropriately considered experimental, not having gone through long-term trials or being fully approved in Canada.”
“There are many reports of adverse reactions reported daily, including death, which have occurred from individuals receiving COVID vaccines. Health Canada specifically has warning labels for the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines, which include myocarditis, pericarditis, Bell’s Palsy and thrombosis,” the group wrote.
“Informed Consent under the CPSA Standards of Care requires that a patient be allowed to make up their own minds as to whether their own personal risk from acquiring COVID 19 is greater or lesser than the risk THEY are willing to take from any acknowledged side effects.”
MyAPSChoice also said that “COVID-19 ‘vaccines’ are not vaccines in the classical sense.”
“These are ‘gene therapy’ drugs, never before injected into humans. They fail to provide robust disease prevention, cannot prevent disease transmission and can spawn ‘new variants’ which are now spreading through the global population,” the group wrote.
“These drugs are still in the experimental phase and will not be validated until 2023. Everyone who submits to these vaccines or is forced to take them – is part of an ongoing drug experiment.”
Regarding COVID jab safety, the group’s letter asks that as an employer if the government of Alberta would take responsibility for any adverse jab reactions.
“Will you be assuming full legal and medical liability for any adverse reactions employees may receive as a result of being compelled by you, as opposed to a personal choice, to take the vaccine and will you continue to support employer funded health insurance coverage for any medical complications that result,” the group wrote.
The group also brought up the fact that many health professionals in Alberta have spoken out against jab safety.
“Alberta Health Professional have witnessed serious adverse events, including deaths, that were temporarily, closely associated from the administration of these vaccines,” the group wrote.
The narrative of overrun hospitals has been countered by some Alberta doctors.
An Alberta doctor recently spoke out, stating the countless COVID jab side effects she has witnessed firsthand.
Dr. Daniel Nagase said it “shocked” him at how his COVID patients were being treated in an Alberta hospital.
He gave a striking personal testimony of how he was removed from hospital duty in a small Alberta town because he used Ivermectin to treat three patients with severe COVID-19, two of whom responded well to the drug.
As for Hinshaw, she was forced to apologize last week for incorrectly saying a 14-year-old died of COVID when in fact he passed as a result of terminal stage four brain cancer.
It’s now widely known that people who have taken the experimental COVID-19 jabs can still contract and spread the disease. COVID vaccine trials have never produced evidence that vaccines stop infection or transmission. They do not even claim to reduce hospitalization, but the measurement of success is in preventing severe symptoms of COVID-19.
Dr. Peter McCullough, M.D., an eminent internist and cardiologist from the United States, recently affirmed that against COVID-19, “[For] people under 50 who fundamentally have no health risks, there’s no scientific rationale for them to ever become vaccinated.”
He also said that those who develop COVID have “complete and durable immunity. And (that’s) a very important principle: complete and durable. You can’t beat natural immunity.”
The COVID-19 injections approved for emergency use in Canada, including the Pfizer jab for ages 12 and up, all have connections to cells derived from aborted babies.
All four have also been associated with severe side effects such as blood clots, rashes, miscarriages, and even heart attacks in young, healthy men.
