Dear Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick
We are writing with regards to the pending second reading of Bill 11 – An Act Respecting Proof of Immunization. As you are aware, Bill 11 mandates indiscriminate vaccine compliance for school attendance and eliminates all non-medical exemptions. Bill 11 effectively denies a public education, guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, to children whose parents have chosen to vaccinate selectively or on a delayed vaccine schedule.
Bill 11 also includes the ‘notwithstanding clause’. The use of the notwithstanding clause is a clear acknowledgement by the proponents of this legislation that Bill 11 violates rights and freedoms guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Bill 11 violates the right to security of the person, conscience and belief, and equal treatment under the law. Bill 11 also violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Nuremberg Code and New Brunswick’s Health Charter of Rights and Responsibilities Act.
Do you recognize the impact of this legislation?
The fact is Bill 11 flagrantly violates:
- the right of informed consent
- the right of parents to make medical decisions for their children
- medical privacy
- bodily sovereignty
- personal autonomy
Medical ethics are clear: No one should be forced to undergo a medical treatment without informed consent and without their agreement to the treatment. Vaccination is a medical treatment with risks including permanent disability and death. It is totally antithetical to all ethics in medicine to mandate that risk to others.
The very real consequence of Bill 11 is that a parent must either comply with the “recommended” medical procedure and act against their wishes and considered wisdom, or be denied a public education for their children, a right guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Our children should never be denied their right to a public education.
This is Not A Medical Issue
The reality is that this is not a medical issue. This is a human rights issue. The vaccine lobby is actively committed to removing our right to say ‘no’ to unwanted medical interventions. This, by an industry that carries no legal or financial liability for the harm, injury and death caused by their products. There is no medical crisis in Canada that justifies the loss of our precious rights and freedoms.
If the concern is really about measles, the New Brunswick government should be developing health policies focused on measles and measles alone. Instead we are seeing broad attacks on the basic human right of free, prior and informed consent. The NB government is using fear of measles to force parents to accept the entire, liability-free vaccine program, not just the measles vaccine. Measles outbreaks are the Trojan Horse the medical industry is using to sell a bloated vaccination schedule, an uncontrolled experiment performed on entire generations of children.
Challenging Government Violations
Vaccine Choice Canada is a community including families who have personally experienced vaccine injury, including permanent disability and death. Our experiences have helped us to recognize the real threats we face as a society. Our goal is to awaken legislators before these human rights violations become normalized and entrenched.
In our effort to bring awareness to these systemic violations of our rights and freedoms, Vaccine Choice Canada has initiated several actions that target governments that are in violation of our legal and humanitarian rights.
1. Legal Opinion – New Brunswick Bill 39
Vaccine Choice Canada secured a legal opinion on New Brunswick’s Bill 39. The document – A Threat to Liberty and Bodily Autonomy: Compelling Individuals to Choose Between Vaccinations and Public Education Submissions on Bill 39: An Act Respecting Proof of Immunization Brief to the Standing Committee on Law Amendments can be found at:
2. New Brunswick Committee on Law Amendments
Vaccine Choice Canada made a formal submission to NB’s Committee on Law Amendments. A link to the VCC Presentation can be found at:
3. Legal Challenge Against the Ontario Government
The Ontario government has been violating rights and freedoms through the use of vaccine mandates for 37 years. The addition of mandatory vaccine education sessions and compelled speech affidavits are more recent Constitutional violations. Families across Canada have decided that enough is enough. On October 24, 2019 Vaccine Choice Canada launched a formal legal challenge against the government of Ontario.
A description of our legal action and a copy of the Statement of Claim for this Constitutional challenge can be found at:
4. Legal Opinion – BC’s Regulation 376
Vaccine Choice Canada secured a legal opinion from a Canadian Constitutional Law Specialist on the new Regulations in British Columbia, which is relevant to the draconian measures being proposed in New Brunswick. Our Constitutional specialist states:
“The new Regulations . . . flagrantly violate:
(a) a person’s freedom of conscience and belief contrary to s.2 of the Charter;
(b) a person’s freedom and security of the person to their physical and psychological integrity, over the control and decisions over their own body, contrary to s. 7 of the Charter, with a law that is “overly broad”, which is contrary to the tenets of fundamental justice under s.7 of the Charter, in not allowing for any personal or individual exemptions;
(c) violates the right to equal treatment under the law, contrary to s.15 of the Charter, in that the Regulations and Act do not apply to Indigenous persons, which clearly vitiates the validity and valid objective of the law with respect to its purported purpose.”
This legal opinion of BC’s Regulation 376 can be reviewed at:
5. Consent or Coercion
Vaccine Choice Canada produced a 20 page document entitled: ‘Consent or Coercion’, which clearly outlines our concerns with coerced vaccination. A copy was recently delivered to every member of the Legislative Assemblies of British Columbia, Ontario and New Brunswick.
Politicians who have read the document acknowledge that they were unaware of the considerable information we provided about vaccine safety, effectiveness and the associated decline in the health of children.

Our Hope and Expectation
It is our hope and expectation that you will familiarize yourself with these issues and their very real implications and become a strong advocate and protector of our rights and freedoms. Whether the notwithstanding clause is removed or remains, the fact is Bill 11 violates rights and freedoms inherent in a free, civil and ethical society. We cannot and will not allow this to happen.
We need to restore a spirit of civil debate to these issues based on evidence, science and respect for human rights. We need to take financial interests out of public health, and mandates out of medicine. We are aware that if we do nothing, our rights, freedoms and sovereignty will most certainly be lost.
We are available to discuss any of this with you at your convenience. Feel free to contact VCC with your questions.
