Dear Mr. Hoskins,
You are charged with the responsibility of “ensuring” that Ontarians have the best of health and healthcare.
Appears there is a paradox here, as you are attempting to mandate “educational” classes for parents who do not wish to vaccinate, as if their decision was made in a hasty, ignorant, and uneducated manner….
Besides the fact that dictating what people do with their health contradicts what is inherent in the Charter of Rights of Freedoms bestowed upon Canadians, it silences people who have already been affected by the deleterious effects of vaccines.
This “sound science” that shows vaccines are safe and that “debunks” everything that is anti-pharma, can also be debunked by Science that shows otherwise. These are educated Phd’s, scientists, doctors, researchers, epidemiologists, etc. Do not dismiss the very educated, just because they do not adhere the the “norm / status-quo”.
People have choice on what to do with their bodies and the bodies of their children, as what is inherent in a country with freedoms.
To mandate education classes implies, we as parents, do not have the right information, and we need government to “help” us along like children to make an “informed decision”. WIll you also “educate” people who do not take their flu shot???
The many professionals and experts have shown the dangers of vaccines, which include but are not limited to allergies, asthma, learning disabilities, autism, type 1 diabetes, and the list goes on.
I am a man in my 40’s and I cannot recall (not because of my memory…my memory serves me well) anyone in my own elementary class that had ANY of these ailments.
It is important as a Minister of Health to not only respect the wishes of its free constituents, but also fight for their cause with them.
