Vaccine Choice Canada is launching legal action against the Government of Canada and others for violating our rights and freedoms during the COVID-19 outbreak. Further details will follow.
It is Time to End This Epidemic of Fear
We are living in unprecedented times.
The mass and indiscriminate containment of citizens and the restriction of access to our economy, courts, parliament, and livelihoods are extraordinary measures that have never before been considered, much less implemented. The impact of these measures on our physical, emotional, psychological, and economic well-being is profoundly destructive, unwarranted, and clearly not sustainable.
During this time of extraordinary measures, it is critical that governmental response be measured, reasonable, and supported by demonstrable evidence. The severe curtailment of civil liberties without projected timelines for their rescission, the shutdown of economic activity and resulting job losses, the increase of human suffering through confinement and restriction of liberty, and the closure of courts of justice denying citizens a ready recourse, are all factors which must be weighed in the balance of a Constitution that protects the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens.
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. During times of emergency, constitutional rights do not stop being important. They become even more important.
Vaccine Choice Canada has made numerous formal requests of the Government of Canada and the provincial governments to provide evidence that justifies the violations of our Constitutional rights, to no avail. It is time to hold our governments accountable. It is time that our governments release publicly, and honestly, the data, evidence and advice that proves that these violations are minimal, necessary and demonstrably justifiable.
Canadians have lost confidence that the Canadian government is acting responsibly. It is apparent that the imposed interventions and government overstep are far worse than the virus itself, that decisions are being made based on a political or ideological agenda rather than on scientifically supported, evidence-based practices, and that the real epidemic we face is an epidemic of fear and state sponsored tyranny on a global basis.
Today, Vaccine Choice Canada formally announces its intention to hold the Government of Canada, and other parties yet to be named, accountable in a court of law. Vaccine Choice Canada has a long history and enviable reputation of advocating for and defending the rights and freedoms of Canadians when it comes to public and individual health. While this matter seems to stretch the intended mandate of Vaccine Choice Canada, it is nonetheless inseparable given the centrality of mandatory vaccinations that are publicly proposed by governments without medical or scientific basis. Thus, we recognize the urgent need to defend the rights and freedoms of all Canadians.
Vaccine Choice Canada has secured the services of Mr. Rocco Galati, a highly regarded Canadian Constitutional lawyer. Galati has been described as “the lawyer who lives to take on the government.” We are confident that Galati will passionately and expertly defend our Constitutional rights and firmly establish that the rights and freedoms as defined in the Canadian Constitution are rightfully the domain of every citizen of Canada.
Help Support this Action
A constitutional challenge requires tremendous resources, both financial and in expertise. Vaccine Choice Canada is inviting all Canadians who feel aggrieved by the actions of government in their response to SARS-CoV-2 to support us in this effort. Financial contributions can be received at:
The Government of Canada must dutifully and lawfully honour the sacred trust and integrity required of elected officials to represent their constituents and protect our democratic and free country, our livelihoods and communities, and ensure that the rights and freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution are first and foremost. Anything less is not just irresponsible, it is unconscionable.
