December 1, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — With several different coronavirus vaccines just weeks away from being delivered to the public, only 59 percent of Canadians still support the idea of making such a vaccine mandatory, according to an Ipsos poll conducted online for Global News. In May, an Ipsos survey indicated that 72 percent supported mandatory vaccinations.
The poll also asked respondents to give their opinions on the speed of COVID-19 vaccine development. The vast majority, 71 percent, said taking a vaccine that was approved so fast makes them nervous, with 69 percent saying they have concerns for potential harmful long-term effects of the vaccine.
When respondents were given detailed conditions under which they would agree to take a COVID-19 vaccine “without hesitation once approved,” only 19 percent said they would be willing to do so.
Specifically, 32 percent of respondents said that before taking a COVID-19 vaccine, they would need “some kind of reassurance from government first,” with 21 percent saying they would only do so on the “advice” of their family doctor.
A total of 36 percent of respondents said they would take the vaccine after a waiting period of six months to see “if there are adverse side-effects that develop in those who have receive (sic) the vaccine.”
Only 18 percent of respondents would take the COVID-19 vaccine if it were made “mandatory by the government.” A total of 13 percent would not take it under any circumstances.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he needed time to “reflect” on the possibility of making a coronavirus vaccine mandatory in Canada.
Canada has agreements with AstraZeneca, Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline, Novovax, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Medicago and Moderna to quickly deliver up to “358 million doses” of various COVID-19 vaccines.
Some of the COVID-19 vaccine candidates are being developed using cell lines developed from tissue from aborted babies.
Moderna and AstraZeneca use the HEK-293 cell line, which was derived from kidney tissue taken from a healthy baby aborted in the Netherlands in the 1970s. Johnson & Johnson is using the PER.C6 cell line, which was developed from retinal tissue from a baby aborted in the 1980s.
GlaxoSmithKline, Novovax, Sanofi, Pfizer, and Medicago apparently are not using such cell lines in the development of their vaccines, although they might use them for their trials.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.
- One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
- Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]
But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.
And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.
People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate 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 or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.
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 for refusing a 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 can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.
Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

Apart from the use of fetal cells, some vaccine critics have also pointed out that vaccines should be tested even more thoroughly than any other medication, not the other way around.
“It’s a medical intervention that is being given to perfectly healthy people to prevent somebody else from getting sick,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr. during a debate in July. “And it’s the only medicine that’s given to healthy people … and particularly to children who have a whole lifetime in front of them. So you would expect that we would want that particular intervention to have particularly rigorous guarantees that it’s safe.”
And yet, the pharmaceutical companies who develop vaccines are each “a convicted serial felon,” Kennedy said. “In the past 10 years, just in the last decade, (GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi, Pfizer, and Merck) have paid 35 billion dollars in criminal penalties, damages, fines, for lying to doctors, for defrauding science, for falsifying science, for killing hundreds of thousands of Americans knowingly.”
No COVID-19 vaccine has yet been approved by Health Canada.
Vaccine Choice Canada (VCC), a national non-profit that educates parents and consumers about current and developing vaccines in Canada, has a petition that people can sign to ask the government to make COVID-19 vaccines voluntary.
