REGINA, Saskatchewan (LifeSiteNews) – Saskatchewan’s premier once again cited the “psychological” and economic damage caused by lockdowns when explaining why he has not imposed new restrictions during the “omicron” wave.
On Monday, Premier Scott Moe of the Saskatchewan Party once again referenced the growing body of evidence that shows lockdowns are not only ineffective at stopping the spread of COVID-19, but actually cause more harm than good. This was the second press conference in a row during which Moe decried lockdowns, a measure he once used, and told his citizens that he would not be implementing more restrictions.
“Saskatchewan’s current rate of hospitalizations and ICU admission is below the national rate, and is well below a number of provinces that have imposed much more stringent public health measures, and much more stringent lockdowns than we have here in Saskatchewan,” Moe said during the press conference.
“For instance, in the case of Quebec, the province that has likely the largest or most extreme lockdown policies in Canada: They currently have just under 40 hospitalization admissions per [one] hundred thousand people, [and] that’s nearly double the rate that we have here in Saskatchewan,” added the premier, also mentioning that Saskatchewan has a lower COVID fatality rate than Quebec by almost seven times.
Moe continued by saying that for these reasons his province will not “impose significant restrictions that cause significant harm, for no significant benefit.”
Preemptively answering the inevitable question of how he can know lockdowns are not effective, Moe stated that the evidence is “right here in Saskatchewan,” as the province has the least restrictive measures in place out of any Canadian province and yet still boasts among the lowest hospital admissions rate, ICU admissions rate, and COVID mortality rates.
“[By declining to lockdown] we’re avoiding the economic and psychological harm, and the infringement on personal freedoms that are often caused by lockdowns,” expressed the premier, adding that “COVID” is not going away but that many diseases exist and are dealt with without “locking down, taking away people’s freedoms, and without disrupting everyone’s life.”
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

While other provinces such as Ontario and Quebec imposed lockdowns, put harsh caps on gathering limits, and mandated the closure of businesses and schools at the onset of the so-called “omicron wave,” Saskatchewan declined to add any measures, with the only action taken being an extension of their mask mandate from the end of January to the end of February.
Despite the heavy-handed approach of many Canadian provincial governments by enacting lockdown after lockdown, the scientific and legal justifications for the measures have been widely criticized.
Late last year, The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms released a comprehensive 32-page report titled Are Lockdowns Worth Their Cost?, outlining the massive fallout that has occurred as a result of the rolling lockdowns imposed on Canadians since March of 2020.
Are Lockdowns worth their Cost? addresses more than 60 different lockdown harms with examples including the ballooning government debt; forced unemployment of millions of Canadians and the closure of thousands of Canadian small businesses; heightened rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide even among youth; record levels of substance abuse; increased domestic violence; increased child abuse and sexual exploitation; and the cancellation of thousands of surgeries, cancer screenings, and other necessary medical treatments.
On the legal front, the JCCF noted that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms requires governments to produce compelling evidence to justify their violation of Charter freedoms to move, travel, assemble, associate, and worship, and the citizens’ Charter right to bodily autonomy, which includes the right to refuse new coronavirus vaccines that have not been subjected to long-term safety testing.
“In the past 21 months, governments have produced almost no documentation to suggest that they have seriously considered lockdown harms, which is an abject failure to comply with our Constitution,” stated JCCF lawyer and president John Carpay.
