BC’s new “Vax Vans” are offering jabs to children older than 12, without parental consent

Anyone in attendance over the age of 12 will be able to get their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine without parental consent.




Hey kid, I’ve got some mRNA shots in my van.

The new “Vax Van” – a custom mobile COVID-19 immunization clinic – will be stopping off in the Vancouver Island city of Langford on Friday night as part of its island-wide tour, according to Island Health.

The team will be setting up shop at Starlight Stadium, where Pacific FC will be playing Calgary’s Cavalry FC.

Anyone in attendance over the age of 12 will be able to get their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine without an appointment.

“Look for our Vax Van signs – you won’t be able to miss us!” writes Island Health.

“As an added bonus, Pacific FC is offering those who get their first dose at the game the chance to win a special prize. We’ll see you there.”

The allure of prizes combined with the potential for social pressure will likely motivate temporarily unsupervised children to roll their sleeves up for the mRNA vaccine.

Plenty of kids ages 12-17 have not received the shot because their parents do not feel comfortable with it. Their discomfort exists for various reasons, each personal to the respective family, and the tactics employed by the BC government show their desire to undermine Canadian parents in new and creative ways.

“Children 12 and older who are able to understand the benefits and possible reactions to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, and the risk of not getting immunized, can legally consent to or refuse immunizations at any Island Health COVID-19 immunization clinic or Vax Van,” Andrew Leyne, media and government relations advisor, Island Health, told the Western Standard.

While many British Columbian’s thought they were out of the woods regarding COVID-19 regulations, Interior Health has re-introduced mask mandates in Central Okanagan, along with other enforcement demands.

They will be monitoring Central Okanagan businesses to “ensure compliance.”

These restrictions follow Interior Health reporting that vaccination rates in the area are lower than the provincial average, in what some view as a warning to the rest of the province for what is to come in the fall.

“It is a choice to be immunized, but there are consequences for people who are not immunized and that’s going to be more important for us as we head into the fall,” said Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry on Tuesday morning, one day prior to dishing out the new mandates.

On Monday, the Surrey Board of Trade wrote a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Health Minister of Canada Patty Hajdu, BC Premier John Horgan, and Minister of Health Adrian Dix urging them to “implement a proof-of-immunization model.”

“We support a centralized, Canada-wide approach to COVID-19 proof-of immunization that could be easily used to confirm vaccination status for international and domestic use,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.

Last week, YVR airport introduced separate lines for vaccinated and un-vaccinated individuals prior to reaching customs.

The separation of lines – which was put in place as a federal policy – has since been removed following extensive public push-back.

Concerns of returning lock-downs come fall are starting to grow substantially throughout the province, with people fearing the blame will be directed towards those who choose not to receive the vaccine.

A non-profit called the Canadian Society for the Advancement of Science in Public Policy (CSASPP) is fighting tooth and nail to hold the provincial government accountable for their “draconian” behaviour. They launched a Go Fund Me seven months ago.

“Our public health officer is a medical doctor. She is a scientist, not a shaman,” CSASPP’s Executive Director told the Western Standard on Thursday afternoon.

“Faith is not a requisite. As Carl Sagan aptly put it, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

“We’re still waiting for it.”

    This is beyond evil. How can they get away with this. You can’t give an aspirin to a student in school, without parental consent and they can do this??? What a fool this Bonnie Henry is, and there is blood and more blood on her hands.

    This quote from the 2009 WHO Eugenics conference has a lot more meaning today.

    I would bet the farm the Fauci & Gates were sitting in the front row!

    WHO Council on Eugenics, February 25th 2009:

    “Once the herd accepts mandatory vaccinations, It’s GAME OVER. They will accept anything – Forcible blood or organ donation- “For the greater good”.

    We can genetically modify children and sterilize them- “For the greater good”. Control sheep minds and you control the herd.

    Vaccine makers stand to make billions. And many of you in this room are investors. It’s a BIG win/win. We thin out the herd, and the herd pays us for extermination services”

    CDC: 397 Children Suffered Heart Inflammation After COVID-19 Vaccine

    Nearly 400 children between the ages of 12 and 17 were diagnosed with heart inflammation after receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, according to a study published by the CDC on July 30.

    The condition, also known as myocarditis, occurred mostly in young boys, the study found. Heart inflammation was not identified as an adverse reaction during the safety trials for the vaccine.

    What happened to parental consent?!?…This is appalling…Do these vans include a creepy driver offering candy too? How is this even remotely legal?

    How is this legal? If the government thinks 12 yr old children can make a life-altering decision that is in opposition to their parents, then I guess they should be able to quit school, drive a car, get a job, move out on their own, and vote too.

    Geez, useful idiots indeed.

    There is no new variant, only side effects from the jab.
    The jabbed are already the walking dead.
    We can’t argue with ghosts.

    I agree with Barbara, I dont think Bonnie knows that the interdisciplinary meeting is going on yesterday and today for Doctors 4 covid19 ethics.

    With the reveal of 62% micro clots and the alleged graphene found incorporated in the Lipid Nano Particle found in a patent. It would be wise for all people pushing this to take a step back and think about what your doing.

    The vax doesn’t work against the new variant and thousands of kids around the world are getting myocarditis.
    B.C’s NDP GOVERNMENT has a lot to answer for. Be glad Notely’s not in here, she’d be after our kids to.

    What would your reaction be, as a parent, if a van pulled up beside your child and offered them a special prize if they came inside for an injection? How stupid are government officials to miss that visual correlation? When I was a kid, I was warned by my parents as a child to keep my distance from anyone that tried something like that and yet here is a government advertising that kind of behavior.

    And the argument that if it saves just one person, it is worth it, is utter nonsense.

    I would’ve straight up end the lives of anyone who did that to my child, I’m sure I’m not the only one, those fkrs in that van better watch their backs.

    This is worse then a random van driving handing out drug filled gummies behind parents backs. The very government we were tricked to trust is dirty and full on with coercion behind parents backs. Shame shame shame. Since when do you go against parents and do such dirty tricks, moreover with the disastrous adverse reactions, killing, maiming and injuring thousands upon thousands.
    Parents, don’t allow toxic crap to be injected into your kids without doing your due diligence and looking into the ingredients and warnings of all those who got the jab and now are I’ll from it. Do your homework!

UCP MLAs: ‘Let unvaxxed post-secondary students get back to class’

“With no evidence to show that it has made their campuses any safer, colleges and universities are denying unvaccinated Albertans the opportunity to receive a higher education,” said the letter.




A letter questioning Alberta post-secondary institutions on policy banning unvaccinated students’ from campuses while unvaxxed healthcare workers are now permitted to rapid test has been sent to campuses across Alberta by two UCP MLAs.

MLA for Cardston-Siksika and Deputy Government House Leader Joseph Schow and Peace River MLA Dan Williams signed the letter dated Thursday addressed to eight post-secondary presidents including the universities of Lethbridge, Alberta, Calgary, Mount Royal, MacEwan, SAIT and NAIT and Bow Valley College.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, along with the Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides and the Minister of Health Jason Copping were each cc’d in the letter.

The letter outlines the change to COVID-19 measures adopted by many Alberta post-secondary institutions in September requiring all students and staff to be fully vaccinated to attend in-person and online learning.

Letter from UCP MLAs to Alberta post-secondary institutions – pg 1

“Although these post-secondary institutions have based their protocols on direction from the Government of Alberta, they have chosen to exclude the option of providing a negative PCR or rapid test,” said the letter.

“There is little to no evidence showing that universities and colleges benefit from limiting in-person learning to those who are vaccinated.”

The letter claims institutions have failed to demonstrate how students on campuses banning the unvaccinated are any safer from COVID-19 than students on campuses allowing for rapid testing instead of proof of vaccination.

“With no evidence to show that it has made their campuses any safer, colleges and universities are denying unvaccinated Albertans the opportunity to receive a higher education,” said the letter.

“Many students opportunities vanish for making a personal health choice.”

Letter from UCP MLAs to Alberta post-secondary institutions – pg 2

The letter references Albert Health Services’ recent update to its mandatory vaccination policy in December allowing unvaccinated healthcare workers the option to rapid test and return to work.

“With that in mind, we have a simple question,” said the letter.

“What makes so many university campuses in Alberta more risk-averse than a hospital or other healthcare facility?

“If Alberta healthcare workers, who are likely exposed to COVID-19 daily are permitted to rapid test, why are post-secondary students being denied the same opportunity? These students are being held to a higher standard, a standard that will unfairly deprive many young Albertans of their future.”

The letter describes Alberta’s position to “lead the country in economic growth” moving forward and suggests a “highly skilled and educated workforce” will be needed.

Both Schow and Williams request all Alberta post-secondary institutions remove their “backward-thinking COVID-19 vaccine mandates” and “allow all students the option to rapid test so they can return to school, complete their education and help build a strong Alberta.”

The Western Standard did not hear back from either MLA for comment before publishing.

Although the Alberta government has not made vaccinations mandatory for any post-secondary institutions, many have adopted the policy on their own resulting in thousands of unvaccinated students not being permitted to access in-person or remote learning.

The University of Alberta, University of Calgary and University of Lethbridge earlier this month extended online learning until after the February reading break.

Trucker freedom convoy GoFundMe raises over $1M

“It’s our duty as Canadians to put an end to this mandates. It is imperative that this happens because if we don’t our country will no longer be the country we have come to love.”




Canadians are responding enmasse to help the country’s truckers.

A GoFundMe to help the truckers surpassed the $1 million mark on Friday afternoon, after only being established six days ago.

Money donated is to be dispersed among truckers to aid with journey costs.

Truckers and supporters alike have gathered in a cross-country convoy drive in protest of mandatory vaccinations for their industry.

Donations go towards the cost of fuel, then food and lodgings along the journey.

Our current government is implementing rules and mandates that are destroying the foundation of our businesses, industries and livelihoods,” the donation page says.

“It’s our duty as Canadians to put an end to this mandates. It is imperative that this happens because if we don’t our country will no longer be the country we have come to love. We are doing this for our future Generations and to regain our lives back.”

Truckers Freedom Convoy 2022 has 3 main routes departing from Vancouver, BC, Sarnia, ON, and Enfield, NS, all meeting in Ottawa on January 29, 2022.

Smaller chains will drive to meet with the main convoy from more rural locations across Canada.

You can find all the routes of the convoy here.

“We are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from Tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, well now its happening to us. We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people. Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed, and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive,” the group says.

The GoFundMe page has a goal of $1,100,000.

“But it’s a small price to pay for our freedoms. We thank you all for your Donations and know that you are helping reshape this once beautiful country back to the way it was,” says the page.

Truckers were previously deemed “essential,” however the federal government green-lit the loss of 12,000-16,000 (10-15%) of cross-border commercial drivers by making vaccinations mandatory, as anticipated by the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA).

“This number may not sound like a lot in the grand scheme of things, but in cross-border areas such as Vancouver or Windsor, there’s a lot of drivers who will cross the border five or six times a day. That’s a lot of loads in a year that no longer have a way of coming up,” Colin Valentim told the Western Standard.

IEA recognizes Canadian oil industry as the environmental world leader

In 2018, oil and gas companies also invested $3.6 billion in environmental protection initiatives, recognized by the IEA as by far the largest environmental protection spend of any industry in the country.  




Canada is doing great but should take measures to continue its reputation as a preferred oil and gas supplier on the global market, says the International Energy Agency.

IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol is a big advocate for net zero targets, but still recognizes the reliance on oil and gas that will persist into the future.

He said he prefers oil supply to come from “good partners” like Canada, he told a press conference.

“Canada has been a cornerstone of global energy markets, a reliable partner for years,” said Birol.

“We will still need oil and gas for years to come… I prefer oil is produced by countries … like Canada (that) want to reduce the emissions of oil and gas.” 

The same IEA report included recommendations for Canada to incentivise moves away from oil production, yet the director still recognizes Canada’s contribution to the global market.

World oil consumption returned to pre-pandemic levels and natural gas demand surpassed levels pre-COVID-19 last year, according to IEA data.

Yet Canada only supplies 6% of the current world market.

Consumption of both oil and gas is expected to continue rising even as more renewable energy sources come online. 

A Russian-caused natural gas crisis in Europe has many looking to Canada as a great alternative.

“The world needs reliable partners,” said Birol, of the European situation.  

Canada is the fourth-largest producer of oil and natural gas in the world and home to the third-largest oil reserves.

“This creates employment for Canadians and secure and reliable oil and gas for both domestic and global markets,” the IEA said.  

The IEA recommends that remaining competitive in global oil and gas markets requires further emission reductions, to ensure the sector remains a major driver of the Canadian economy beyond 2050.

Emission reduction has already been steadily implemented in Canada, analysts praised the oil and gas industry’s “strong track record” of reducing emissions intensity.

The oilsands by have decreased emissions by 32% since 1990 and further reductions of up to 27% are expected by 2030. 

Canadian oil and gas companies spend an average of $1 billion per year on clean energy technology, in addition to billions in environmental protection.  

In 2018, oil and gas companies also invested $3.6 billion in environmental protection initiatives, recognized by the IEA as the largest environmental protection spend of any industry in the country.  

“Canadian oil and natural gas producers are leveraging their improving environmental, social and governance performance and Canada’s stringent environmental regulations to build a global competitive advantage.”
