Vaccine Choice Canada (VCC) is filing a legal challenge against federal, provincial and municipal governments in Canada for their handling of the SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Severe Curtailment of Civil Liberties
Over recent months, Canadian citizens have experienced the following grievous violations of charter rights:
- severe curtailment of civil liberties with the mass and indiscriminate containment of citizens
- the imposition of masking, physical distancing, limits to socialization, and contact tracing
- the shutdown of economic activity and resulting job losses
- the effective closure of our parliaments and courts of justice denying citizens a ready recourse
The impact of these measures on our physical, emotional, psychological, and economic well-being is profoundly destructive and clearly not sustainable.
We recognize that governments may enact laws and pursue policies that limit Constitutional rights and freedoms, but the onus is on the government to prove that the limit is minimal, necessary, finite, and demonstrably justifiable in a free and democratic society. All levels of government have failed to do so.
Indeed, that is why our legal challenge is necessary – to ensure that the government’s response and restrictions placed upon citizens is minimal, necessary, finite and demonstrably justifiable
From Speculation to Evidence
When the SARS-CoV-2 virus first presented in January 2020, there was much speculation about the potential impact of this coronavirus. Predictions of wide-spread infection with high rates of mortality persuaded governments globally that unprecedented containment measures were necessary to save us from certain peril. We understand and appreciate the need for caution during times of uncertainty.
While there is more about the SARS-2 coronavirus that needs to be understood, emerging evidence clearly demonstrates that the mathematical modelling used to justify extreme containment measures is invalid. Further, the vast majority of the population is not at serious risk of complications or mortality as a result of exposure to SARS-2.
The drastic isolation measures that were imposed are not supported by scientific evidence. There is considerable agreement in the scientific community that not only are such drastic measures unrealistic
and unsustainable, but that these measures are likely to increase overall morbidity and mortality.
Many weeks ago, the statistical models used by the government to impose draconian lockdowns were significantly downgraded. This should have immediately prompted our governments to modify and rescind lockdown policies.
No Government Transparency, No Empirical Scientific Data
Vaccine Choice Canada made numerous formal requests of the Government of Canada and various provincial governments to provide the scientific evidence and data to justify the violations of our Constitutional rights. To date this requested scientific evidence has not been provided.
There is abundant, severe and valid criticism from recognized experts in Canada and globally who dispute the government’s position and response to SARS-2.     These experts concur that the decisions of governments have been based on unsupported assumptions and epidemic modelling rather than empirical evidence.
As a result, there are valid reasons for Canadians to be concerned that an over-hyped SARS-2 pandemic narrative is creating unwarranted and unnecessary panic. Further, this panic is being used by governments to justify violations of the rights and freedoms that form the basis of our society, including our constitutional rights, sovereignty, privacy, rule of law, financial security, and even our very democracy.
It’s possible these violations will become even more egregious as Prime Minister Trudeau and others have repeatedly declared that “life will not return to normal until a vaccine is found.” Implied in this message is that, should a vaccine for SARS-2 be developed that is deemed “safe and effective,” the vaccine would become mandatory for all citizens, regardless of the risks and violations of rights.
It is increasingly apparent that the imposed interventions and government overstep is far worse than the virus itself, and that decisions are being made based on a political or ideological agenda rather than on scientifically supported, evidence-based practices. It is obvious that the real epidemic we face is an epidemic of fear and state sponsored tyranny on a global scale.
It is imperative and urgent that Prime Minister Trudeau, all elected officials and public health officers lawfully, clearly, and openly reveal the statistical modelling, the scientific evidence and epidemiological data that justifies the continued violations of the rights and freedoms of Canadians.
The Government of Canada needs to honour the duty and sacred trust given them and sworn by them to protect our democratic and free country, our livelihoods and communities, and to ensure that the rights and freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution are first and foremost. It is the responsibility of our leaders to defend both the health and prosperity of Canadians. These goals are not in conflict but reinforce one another.
This Legal Action is Fully in Alignment with the Vaccine Choice Canada Mission Statement
Vaccine Choice Canada has a long and enviable history of protecting our rights and freedoms in Canada, including the right to informed consent, bodily sovereignty, and the right of parents to make medical decisions for their dependent children.
While our focus and commitment is to ensure the right of citizens to informed consent, especially pertaining to the medical practice of vaccination, at the heart of our work is the protection and preservation of the rights and freedoms that make Canada an enviable place to live.
We have been emboldened by the generous support we have received from the wider community who increasingly recognize the need to protect our rights and freedoms and are grateful that Vaccine Choice Canada continues to be an organization that passionately defends these freedoms.
During times of emergency, constitutional rights do not stop being important.
They become even more important.
