Calgary police take travelling woman into mandatory isolation, but refuse to tell family where she is

An Edmonton pastor may have found out the hard way Thursday night about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s new travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trudeau announced Friday morning all returning travellers into the country must go to a government isolation centre where another COVID-19 test will be taken. If a passenger tests negative, they will be allowed to return home for a strictly-enforced another 11 days. Those testing positive will be taken to another government facility for the rest of their 14-day quarantine.

Trudeau said it will cost each traveller about $2,000 for the cost of the test, accommodations and food.

The new rules weren’t even announced yet Thursday night, but it appears officials at YYC were ready.

“(My wife Nikki) arrived in Calgary tonight and when she got there she was greeted by a Police Officer and an AHS official,” wrote Pastor Chris Mathis on his Facebook page.

“They rejected her results and told her she needed to go immediately to an isolation facility. She was told if she resisted she would be arrested. She called me, and I immediately asked to talk with the officer. I talked with both a police officer and the AHS official, they reiterated what she had said to me. I asked for the address of where she would be, they said they could not give me the location address as it was confidential.

“I asked for their names, again they would not give me any information or their names. I pushed, I questioned, I tried to fight but they said they would arrest her if she resisted. They would not give me any information on where they were taking my wife.

“She was not allowed to get her vehicle from the airport, she was immediately put in a white van surrounded by police escorts and taken to an unknown facility that is under full surveillance and has security at every entrance and exit. You can imagine I am barely keeping myself together wondering what in the world has happened in our country in what seems to be overnight.”

Earlier, Trudeau also announced all Canadian airlines had agreed to cancel all the flights to sun and sand destinations until the end of April.

“We all agree that now is just not the time to be flying,” Trudeau said.

“By putting in place these tough measures now, we can look forward to a better time when we can all plan those vacations.”

All international passenger flights, including from the U.S., will land at the Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Montreal airports.

Global reported the government will be hiring private security firms to help with quarantine checks on returning travellers.

SUE Trudeau and the government for violations of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the constitution….and whatever other charges a good lawyer can think of. Crowdfund for the money needed to take this all the way through the courts. Trudeau is a hypocrite, a liar, and a traitor.

      The police involved had to know that they were violating her rights as protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Hell, i took a security training course and had to learn the Canadian Criminal code and Charter of Rights as it relates to detaining individuals. NO HEALTH EDICT has the right to usurp the Charter. That challenge must be made in The Supreme Court of Canada under a constitutional challenge.

      These BRAVE – “Law Enforcement Officers” and POLITICIANS and Medical Experts – will GENUFLECT in SERVILE OBEISANCE –
      IF the Ones Confronting them are:
      BLM / ANTIFA Domestic Terrorists. . .who Rape and Riot and Murder and Commit ARSON and like Crimes. . .and who OCCUPY Public Parks, LIVING CHEEK by JOWL in UNHYGIENIC Conditions. . .
      Heck – Trudeau and John Tory and Patrick Brown and “Police Commisioner” and “Deputy Police Commissioner” of Toronto – DID THIS. . .
      (Like in EVERY DemoKKKrat Controlled Jurisdiction in the USA – includes Pelosi and Biden and Harris and Schumer and their ILK). . .

      However, IF you are a Taxpayer and Law Abiding Citizen, Protesting LEGALLY and PEACEFULLY – Trudeau and DOUG FORD and KENNEY and NENSHI and JOHN TORY and Patrick Brown and HORGAN and Pallister and their ILK say:
      SHUT – THEM – DOWN!
      And the BRAVE “Law Enforcement Officers” are Happy to DEMONSTRATE their “Power”. . .
      (Like the Hitler Jugend and Stalin’s Goons and Saddam Hussein’s and Mussollini’s and Chavez’s and Maduro’s and Castro’s and the CCP (Remember TIANANMEN Square – Trudeau’s LOVES and ADMIRES China’s BASIC Dictatorship) and The Khomeini’s with his IRG’s and Assad’s and like “Leaders”. . .

        Sadly, I do not think an election will change anything. They just ‘select’ their prime candidate. Look at Boe Jiden. It’s looking more and more like this country will either go down without a fight, or perhaps a violent revolution. But we won’t elect our way out of this mess.

        Good Point and Likely VERY True. . .

        MOST “Canadians” are VERY Complacent. . .because “They” have been Brainwashed into BELIEVING that:
        THE GOVERNMENT WILL TAKE CARE OF US
        And MANY (IF NOT ALL – Coming in, today, as Refugees and Illegals) – do so – BECAUSE they are Told:
        THE GOVERNMENT “WILL T AKE CARE OF YOU”. . .

        This is SADLY TRUE in Most Major Metro Cities – in Canada and the USA. . . and EVEN ACROSS Western Europe (The EU “Bosses” – and Politicians of Member States TELL THEM so – as Part of the Globalist Agenda). . .

        Many – Especially in Germany and France and Scandinavia – who Elected these Politicians – are REGRETTING IT TODAY – when they see their VALUES (that Made said Societies the First World nations they are) – being USED and ABUSED and CORRUPTED – by the very Politicians – “They Elected” – who do so for VOTES!

        WEXIT is – Alberta’s Last Hope – to:
        CHART – Your Own – FUTURE. . .
        MANIFEST – Your Own – DESTINY. . .

        I started years ago trying to educate people on political, and geopolitical issues that we are lied to constantly about. The result was my comments being shadow banned on every platform and a company called Mark Monitor(outed by Snowden for doing spying for the enn ess eh) trying to hack my social media and email accts. I know this to be a fact because FB sent me a warning someone had tried to login unsuccessfully and provided me with the IP address that did it. The same company is now contracted to FB to do the very same work for them.

    What is concerning to me is that not long ago the Solicitor General of Canada Bill Blair just up & said “you can’t come back to Canada without a COVID test” that through airlines into a fit & more. Now Trudeau is saying this is the way it is and fuck you if you don’t like it. That sound like a Liberal Government out of control? Because it sure as hell does to me.

    When you mention the RCMP one just has to look at who is leading that organization, Brenda Luckie, and know she was hand picked by Trudeau for that position. She is more of a political junkie in a law enforcement role and she has done neither very well. Looking the other way is her mantra.

Lawyer blasts Alberta sports facilities for vaccine passport policies

“It is unlawful for your facility to implement REP (Restriction Exemption Program) for youth activities,” From said in his letter to facilities.

mm

Published

on

Lawyer Derek From has sent a stern warning to sport facility operators Monday saying they are breaching the law by requiring parents and kids 12 and over to show their vaccine status.

A constitutional lawyer for 10 years with the Canadian Constitution Foundation, From is now in private practice at an Airdrie law firm.

From was retained by a group of parents who have kids enrolled in youth sports programs in Calgary and the surrounding area.

“It is unlawful for your facility to implement REP (Restriction Exemption Program) for youth activities,” From said in his letter to facilities.

REP allows businesses to either choose to operate as usual if they implement a vaccine passport program or limit their attendance to one-third of their fire code capacity and abide by a number of other public health restrictions.

“Youth sports are supposed to be out of scope for these mandates according to the latest public health order,” From said in an interview with the Western Standard.

Last Thursday, public health order #43-2021 was rescinded due to “bad faith behaviour on the part of businesses offering youth activities and rogue municipal governments seeking to increase and stiffen the restrictions enacted by the Government of Alberta,” From states in the letter.

In its place, order #45-2021 was enacted making it clear that youth activities are out of the scope of REP.  

“This means that facilities that house youth sports are not allowed to use (vaccine) passports. They have to opt out of the passport program,” From said.

However, Calgary city council passed a bylaw that came into effect September 23 forcing businesses eligible for the REP to participate without choice including recreation facilities.

Calgary bylaw 65M2021 says “any person aged 12 years and older must show identification and either proof of vaccination, proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or a medical exemption from vaccine letter.”

“With (Mayor Naheed) Nenshi running interference on this issue, a lot of people were turned away from a number of facilities over the weekend,” From said.

“Essentially, they (city council) have left no one any choice in the municipality of Calgary including hockey rinks, even though it falls out of scope according to the province. Now a bunch of other surrounding communities are falling in line.”  

The legal letter demands these facilities stop enforcing any REP-related restrictions associated with youth physical, performance or recreational activities, and begin to follow the clear direction set out by the Alberta government regarding what falls in and out of scope for the REP.

“Youth physical activity, performance activity and recreational activity, where all participants are under the age of 18” is listed as outside of the purview of REP. This means that REP is not available for implementation in association with such activities,” the letter states.

“Thousands of parents are ready to have this fight for their kids across the province,” From said.

“If the letters aren’t enough to change the course for these facilities, we will start suing rinks and even the city (Calgary).”

From said he was sending the letter to Nenshi and Calgary council Monday.

Norway goes back to life as usual before COVID

Next to Denmark and Britain, Norway joins a growing number of countries who are lifting all COVID-related domestic restrictions.

Published

Norway lifted all remaining COVID-19 restrictions this weekend in an effort to return to normal.

“Now the time has come to return to a normal daily life,” said Erna Solberg, Norways’s prime minister at a press conference.

Neither vaccination status nor a negative test result was required for citizens to enter nightclubs and restaurants which saw throngs of people heading to their favourite hangouts en masse.

Saturday marked the first time capacity limits were lifted in bars and restaurants in more than 500 days. Revellers young and old took to the streets with rowdy celebrations.

Next to Denmark and Britain, Norway joins a small but growing number of countries who are lifting all COVID-19-related domestic restrictions. Sports venues, bars, restaurants and other businesses will be permitted to return to full capacity and will no longer require social distancing or masking.

According to the Institute of Public Health, Norwegian vaccination rates sit around 76% for one dose and 67% are considered fully vaccinated.

Solberg still encouraged citizens to get vaccinated and said those who contract COVID-19 will still be required to self-isolate to avoid transmission.

“Even though everyday life is now back to normal for most people, the pandemic is not over,” Solberg said.

Although some restrictions will remain in place for those arriving in Norway from countries with higher rates of infection, travel restrictions will also be lifted, the government said.

“In short, we can now live as normal,” Solberg said.

Denmark was the first country in the European Union (EU) to lift all corona virus restrictions on September 10.

“The vaccines and the great efforts of all of Denmark’s citizens over such a long period are the foundation for why we are going strong,” Health Minister Magnus Heunicke said on Twitter just before the country opened up.

After seeing nearly three-quarters of adults fully vaccinated and experiencing low rates of infection and death in August, the Danish Health Authority declared the virus is “no longer a critical threat to society.”

Britain lifted much of its COVID-19-related restrictions over the summer.

As of September 23, more than 48 million people in the UK have received their fist does – 89% of those over 16 years old. A total 82% of the population or 44 million people 16 and older have been double jabbed.
