TORONTO (LifeSiteNews) — A top Canadian constitutional rights group filed a lawsuit against the federal government’s mandatory ArriveCAN travel app, arguing the program is in direct violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
“The Democracy Fund (TDF) has filed a Notice of Application in the Federal Court of Canada on behalf of several Canadians against the Minister of Health for the government’s use of the ArriveCAN app that has so frustrated travelers,” The Democracy Fund announced in a press release on Wednesday, the same day the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms announced their own lawsuit against ArriveCAN.
“The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the collection, use and dissemination of the private health information of Canadians by the government is a breach of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms,” the press release added.
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

In the suit, TDF’s lawyers argue that the Quarantine Act — the legislation under which ArriveCAN operates — “does not confer jurisdiction on the government to compel persons entering Canada to disclose intimate details about their health and personal choices under threat of fines or imprisonment.”
Due to this lack of jurisdiction, the lawsuit alleges that by requiring Canadians to reveal such information through the mandatory ArriveCAN app in order to re-enter Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s federal government “unreasonably and unjustifiably infringes” on each Canadian’s right “to be free from unreasonable search and seizure as protected by sections 7 and 8 of the Charter.”
According to the lawsuit, these sections explicitly enshrine each Canadian’s right to not have their “private information” and “medical information” seized “without requisite constitutional grounds.”
TDF also notes that these privacy concerns are only amplified due to the fact that ArriveCAN’s own privacy statement says that “any information obtained through the application can be retained indefinitely and can also be shared with international organizations and foreign governments whom Canada cannot regulate.”
As reported by LifeSiteNews, TDF’s lawsuit is one of two high-profile lawsuits against the Trudeau government’s ArriveCAN app, with the Justice Centre filing a similar lawsuit on behalf of 11 Canadians on Wednesday.
Neither lawsuit came as a surprise to Canadians who have been following the issue, as multiple lawyers and legal groups have been decrying the invasive nature and potential unconstitutionality of the app for months.
In June, after Trudeau’s Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino indicated ArriveCAN was to be used “beyond” the scope of the so-called pandemic, Justice Centre lawyer Hatim Kheir warned LifeSiteNews that “the growth of the scope of the ArriveCAN app is troubling.”
“It started as a tool for monitoring quarantine. It was expanded to include health data, specifically, COVID vaccination status. It is being further expanded to include customs information,” Kheir stated in his email.
“Under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, every Canadian citizen has the right to enter Canada. The app infringes that right of mobility by acting as a barrier to returning,” explained the lawyer, adding, “The app also poses serious threats to privacy” as “Canadians should not be required to disclose personal, medical information as a precondition to exercising their right to return home.”
