MONTREAL, Quebec, July 12, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – If the COVID-19 situation worsens in the fall, Quebec’s Legault government plans to enforce COVID-19 vaccination passports to limit access to “non-essential” services.
Quebec’s Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, made this announcement at a news conference on Thursday afternoon, according to CTV News. Dubé said that he will not implement so-called vaccine passports until all Quebecers have a chance to receive their second shot.
The passports will be used to limit non-vaccinated persons from using non-essential services, in the event that there is a further outbreak of COVID-19. Dubé claims that this will mean that non-essential businesses will not have to be shut down altogether.
“The vaccination passport is going to be used if, and only if, transmission or outbreaks justify us doing so in a certain sector of activity, or a given territory,” the health minister said.
To fight the outbreak, businesses considered “high” or “moderate” risk would only permit doubly vaccinated patrons to enter, requiring proof of vaccination. Areas on the list include bars, gyms, and contact sports. It is not clear if religious services are included on this list.
There is already the technology in place for businesses to verify vaccination. The vaccinated population have received a QR code in their emails. If the vaccine passports are mandated, businesses will just need to be given a reader to scan the code.
“All that the business owner has to do is to have a reader, that we'll be supplying, which is quite simply an app on a phone, and that person will be able to read that to see whether the person is adequately vaccinated,” Dubé said.
He also appealed to adults between the ages of 18 and 30 to receive the vaccine, as they are reportedly the age group with the lowest vaccination rate (67%).
“For many, there is no sense of urgency. I'll tell you that this is starting to be urgent to give you a first dose in July. If you want to be adequately vaccinated by September 1, things are started to hurry,” he said.
He did not explain why young adults should receive the experimental vaccine when the recovery rate for COVID-19 is between 97% and 99.75%.
People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.
But, everyone should agree on this point:
No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.
Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.
The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.
And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.
Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.
Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.
And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.
However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.
But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Dubé also expressed concern regarding variants, saying, “The variants are really what worries us right now.”
Mainstream media are continually reporting on the new Delta variant, claiming it is more deadly than COVID-19. However, scientific records show a 99.9+% recovery rate.
Many media outlets report that the variant primarily affects the unvaccinated portion of the population. Conversely, evidence shows that vaccinated people are six times more likely to die from the Delta variant. Data published by Public Health England also revealed that hospitalizations are higher for the vaccinated.
