SASKATOON, Saskatchewan, December 3, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Canadians are being encouraged to report their neighbors to the authorities in a chilling campaign reminiscent of East Germany and other communist countries.
Last week the Chief Medical Officer for the province of Saskatchewan explicitly said that residents should report others for not obeying public health guidelines regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
“If anyone has any information on [infractions], you know, there is a public health or a non-compliance reporting form where reports can be made,” said Dr. Saqib Shahab on November 26.
“There’s the Saskatchewan public health safety number,” he continued. “So, you know, it is important to report non-compliance, and I would also like to submit that the time for education is now mostly over. Any egregious non-compliance will and should be met through fines and other measures.”
Effective Friday, November 27, only four people are permitted to sit at a table at a restaurant or bar in the province. Only 30 people are permitted to gather in any bingo hall, cinema or other place of entertainment with a capacity of 150 people, and food and drink must be consumed apart from the activity. Indoor “public banquets” and receptions are limited to 30 people, and food and drink may not be served. Only 30 people are allowed to gather for public worship in any one building. Large stores must limit customers to 50% capacity. Since November 19, residents of the province cannot have “indoor gatherings” of more than five people in their homes.
A Saskatchewan priest who spoke to LifeSiteNews under condition of anonymity said that his prairie province has a culture in which neighbors take care of each other in spite of government regulations.
However, he had heard two stories about people using the government’s coronavirus snitch line. The first involved a pizza delivery man who reported on a household after noticing guests there during a delivery. The second involved a restaurant customer who reported the restaurant for seating eight people together.
This has had an effect on local behavior, the priest explained. “You don’t know who to trust.”
He told LifeSiteNews that he knows of doctors who believe that the government guidelines are too strict and that the Catholic Church in Saskatchewan should “push back” regarding the limited number of people permitted to attend public worship. However, the priest acknowledged that Catholics in the province have more freedom of worship than in the neighboring province of Manitoba, where all in-person religious services are banned.
The priest also indicated that Saskatchewan hospitals are not sites of coronavirus chaos.
“They emptied out hospitals to make room for COVID patients, but for now hospitals seem quiet,” he said.
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.

We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.

According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Saskatchewan received 2,912 “COVID-related calls for service” between March 1 and October 31, 2020, “an average of 364 calls a month.”
From the almost 3,000 calls, 42 charges resulted. The CBC reported that the majority of those spoken to by the police were given a lecture about “the potential health and enforcement consequences that can result from non-compliance with the public health order,” according to an RCMP spokesperson.
The population of Saskatchewan is approximately 1,174,000 people, less than five people per square mile. According to the provincial government, there have been 9,219 “cases” of COVID-19. 55 deaths in the province have been attributed to it.
