BC soccer academy says staff must be ‘fully vaxxed’ by September

“These are the requirements in order to apply and get a job with us.”

A popular BC soccer academy has announced all staff must be fully vaccinated by September.

“Given that Total Soccer staff will be working with many players too young to be vaccinated, we have decided to make COVID vaccination mandatory for all new staff,” the academy wrote in a tweet.

“All existing staff have voluntarily agreed to comply with this policy and will be fully vaxxed by the start of Sept.”

If someone were to apply for a job, but did not want to disclose whether or not they have received the vaccine, Total Soccer would not hire that person, co-owner Brendan Quarry told the Western Standard.

“These are the requirements in order to apply and get a job with us,” said Quarry.

“We require proof. We would ask for them to submit their vaccination card.”

The academy’s new policy reflects a divisive topic permeating culture, with some arguing that private businesses have the right to require proof of vaccination, and some arguing they do not.

Many people who have chosen not to get the mRNA shot themselves take no issue with small businesses having absolute governance over their own hiring policies, albeit, they may hold concern as to where the road leads.

Universities, schools, and government policies are where things get really contentious.

On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the federal government is considering mandatory vaccines for federal public service employees, as well as for federally regulated industries.

The mandatory requirement is a “question of leadership,” said Trudeau.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault also announced Thursday that Quebec will introduce a vaccine passport to allow those who have received two doses to continue to “live a normal life,” scolding Quebecers who have received their COVID-19 vaccines saying they will lose privileges if they don’t get two doses.

Last week in BC, 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.

    Mandating these vaccines is still forced vaccination. This must be stopped. Stop all vaccination.

    Who takes Medical advice from the Stupidest Man in Canada . . . Justin Trudeau?

    This is an Experimental Vaccine . . . no one knows what the Long Term Consequences are going to be . . . already we have seen many disturbing outcomes.

    For most of the population the Wuhan Flu is no more dangerous than any Corona Flu we have seen for decades. For the under 18 crowd the risks are near ZERO and far less than the risks involved in the Experimental mRNA pretend Vaccine.

    Wise up Canada . . .

    Westofsasks is totally right. Everyone who took these experimental injections and even had their kids get them are responsible for this. Some told me they did it to travel even though they had no near future travel plans. Totally ignorant and irresponsible. Now the government can corral the the remaining 25% and put extreme pressure. 75% is not enough for them. They want to get it in the arm of every non-elite living person. Keep in mind that the use of the word “immunized” is a lie. These injections have not been teste for their ability to prevent infection or spread of covid-19 and are not intended to do so. The clinical trials testing the safety of these injections are not finished, meaning that every member of the public who takes one is now a test subject in an ongoing medical experiment. Also, the big pharmaceutical manufacturers and government have total indemnity over death and injury from these injections. As of 2 weeks ago the American VAERS database (Canada does not record these stats in any meaningful way) listed more than 11,000 deaths from these injections. Experts speculate that the actual number is probably higher by a factor of 5. Unlike covid-19 which mostly affects the elderly with co-morbidities, those injured or killed by the injections are spread across all age groups.

    Possibly the true effect of these injections (sterility, pathogenic priming) will become apparent in the near future and that is why they want everyone to get it now.

    For those who being pressured at the workplace, it is a good idea to get the organization’s policy. There are always exemptions. For those who feel they have to get it, have the employer sign that the employee is taking it under duress and the employer is responsible for adverse reactions or death. I will not take any of these gene altering therapies and will really investigate the exemptions.

    Another fact is that in Canada, all the injections available are the mRNA gene therapies. In China they are using the Sinopharm vaccine. It is actually a vaccine using the same technology developed by Jonas Salk and no more dangerous then a flu, measles or hepatitis vaccine. It is not available nor recognized in Canada but is recommended by the WHO. It is being used throughout Asia, the Middle East and some European countries. For myself, I would much rather take this shot (an actual vaccine) and hopefully the Canadian politicians can be pressured to accept it.

    Mandated is still forced vaccination. Get a lawyer and take them to court. Use the Nuremberg Code.
    The Nuremberg Trials held that indemnifying state leader and those who obey them from liability is illegal. The Nuremberg Code is a part of the verdict of the Doctor trial. It is the most important legal document in the history of medical ethics. For the first time in history the right of the individual human being was given priority over the state. The Nuremberg Code established 10 enduring foundational legal principals of ethical ,clinical research. First and foremost is the right to voluntary, informed consent, which is absolutely essential. The right to conformed consent extended human rights beyond National Borders. It applies in times of peace and in times of war. It had the multi lateral agreement of the allied governments. It provides legal justification to Litigate violations of conformed consent. The tribunal sited nonconsensual experiments such as, the testing of drugs and vaccines for immunization against malaria, jaundice, typhoid, small pox, cholera and others, to justify the guilty verdict. The Nuremberg Code asserts that Human Dignity is a moral imperative over the state political expedients. Responsibility for the violation of conformed consent rests upon individual Doctors, individual Government officials and those who aide and abetted them. Each of them can be prosecuted for crimes against humanity. https://www.ukcolumn.org/video/doctors-for-covid-ethics-symposium-session-3-first-do-no-harm

    All of you that took this vaccine are to blame. That includes Alberta. 75% compliance! That’s why they know they can mandate it! You might as well vote for Trudeau because you’ve given them everything they wanted!

    Mandated I’d still forced vaccination. Get a Lawyer and take then to court. Use the Nuremberg Code that is recognized internationally. The vaccine is experimental and not safe. It is still in trial studies. No one knows the long turn effects of this new technology.
    Let’s look at the USA reporting system VAERS ( vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
    518,769 reports through July 23/2021.
    11,940 deaths

    If the Feds get away with this, next up is anyone getting old age or unemployment insurance. These are clearly offenses under Nuremberg and Geneva but no one seems to care.

    Me thinks these organizations have a short time left before they are left with zero employees due to longer term side effects kicking in from these mystery ingredient injections.

    Welcome to China Canada, no free will anymore, mandatory vaccines, the government censors free speech, there going after guns, too bad so many brain dead people “ the woke, left leaning group” don’t realize, you let the government take over your life, the price you owe them is your FREEDOM. While people are ok with mandatory vaccines hope the next leader doesn’t decide, birth control will be mandatory for all poor folks, vasectomies mandatory for welfare people. Remember when you give government the power over you, they decide what’s best for you

    On Global today 5 Aug 2021. Prime Minister Trudeau is looking at mandatory Covid-19 vaccination.

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday that he has asked the Privy Council to look into making COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for federal employees, as well as possibly requiring them for federally regulated industries.

    One step closer to mandatory Covid-19 vaccination for the masses.

Flights from Vancouver to Kamloops priced more than $1,200 over Christmas

BC flight prices have skyrocketed over the Christmas season following flood damage to highways.

Published

on

Following substantial flooding in November, which led to savaged highways and infrastructure, many of those planning to visit family out of town for Christmas are forced to fly — and some will be paying exorbitant prices for it.

For example, a WestJet round trip — listed on Expedia — from Vancouver to Kamloops, BC on December 22, with a return flight on December 27 is listed at $1,264 as of Wednesday morning.

The normally 30-minute flight includes a nearly four-hour layover in Calgary.

On TripAdvisor, the same round trip is priced similarly.

Those planning a round trip from Vancouver to Kelowna, BC on the same dates will save a few hundred bucks in comparison to those headed for Kamloops. For example, one round trip with WestJet from Vancouver to Kelowna — December 22-27 — is listed at $741 on Wednesday, although it includes a six-hour layover in Edmonton.

Normal flight times between the locales are 55 minutes.

Prices on WestJet’s website are comparable. On Air Canada’s site, all are currently sold out for the aforementioned dates and locations.

However, those travelling between Vancouver and Kelowna can find cheaper trips on Swoop if they fly out of Abbotsford, BC. On Wednesday morning, a non-stop round trip from Abbotsford to Kelowna, departing on December 22 and returning on December 29, is priced under $300.

Top Ontario doc says separating vaxxed and unvaxxed best way to get COVID under control

Ontario has had more than 626,000 cases of COVID-19 which has left more than 10,000 people dead.

Published

One of the ways to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control is to stop “the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” says Ontario’s chief medical officer.

“Basic means of protecting individuals is stopping the mixing of unvaccinated and vaccinated,” said Dr. Kieran Moore at a Tuesday press conference.

“And if our cases continue through and after the holidays we would make recommendations of government to continue the certification process in play. But we’ll continue to review the data. We do have a very robust testing strategy in Ontario for the winter months as we’ve released previously. We’ve purchased … 11 million rapid antigen test for all students in Ontario.”

Moore was asked whether COVID-19 is “something we’re just going to have to learn to live with” and whether it would ever go away.

“We have a long ways to go with the World Health Organization and other international organizations to try to decrease the number of individuals in which this virus can mutate and/or spread,” he said.

“But I do see a time when we’ll have low, endemic rates and it will turn out to be like influenza or other winter respiratory viruses where there’s a seasonality to it, where it does have an intermittent impact on our health-care system and like influenza, you need an annual vaccine to protect against it.”

Ontario has had more than 626,000 cases of COVID-19 which has left more than 10,000 people dead.

Trudeau’s beach denier demoted

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

The Justin Trudeau spokesman who told reporters the prime minister “wasn’t on a beach” when he was, has been demoted, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Trudeau was photographed twice on a beach in Tofino after deciding to skip the first day of a holiday he created — the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on September 30.

Trudeau had promised to “set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government.”

Alex Wellstead will be “taking on new challenges” as press secretary to the industry minister, the Prime Minister’s Office said yesterday.

Wellstead in a statement called it “a very difficult decision to make.” He had worked as Trudeau’s official spokesman for 20 months.

Wellstead on September 30 issued misleading statements to conceal the fact Trudeau spent the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation at a beach resort in Tofino, B.C.

“He wasn’t on a beach,” Wellstead told The Canadian Press at the time. Global News and the weekly Chilliwack Progress photographed Trudeau strolling on the beach and enjoying a glass of beer on a beachfront patio.

The Prime Minister’s Office claimed Trudeau was in private meetings in Ottawa. Staff flew an Indian Residential School “survivors’ flag” and issued a solemn statement in Trudeau’s name.

“We remember the children who never made it home,” it said.

Wellstead did not explain his conduct.

“You as a communicator need to understand everything,” Wellstead said in a March 30 interview with public relations students at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ont.

The prime minister in 2015 Ministerial Mandate letters said officials must be truthful and transparent.

“Members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, indeed all journalists in Canada and abroad, are professionals who by asking necessary questions contribute in an important way to the democratic process,” wrote Trudeau.

“Your professionalism and engagement with them is essential.

“We have committed to set a higher bar for openness and transparency in government. It is time to shine more light on government to ensure it remains focused on the people it serves.

“Government and its information should be open by default. If we want Canadians to trust their government, we need a government that trusts Canadians.

“It is important that we acknowledge mistakes when we make them. Canadians do not expect us to be perfect. They expect us to be honest, open and sincere in our efforts to serve the public interest.”

Trudeau on October 6 apologized for the Tofino holiday.

“Traveling on September 30 was a mistake and I regret it,” the prime minister told reporters.

“What made you decide to take a personal trip on a day your government set aside to honour the victims and survivors of residential schools?” asked a reporter.

“Like I said, it was a mistake,” replied Trudeau.
