Alberta peace officer won’t follow forced vaccination order

“For it to be a mandatory order, I think it violates our rights as protected under the constitution,” he said in an interview with the Western Standard.

A peace officer in Spruce Grove has added his name to the list of people who will refuse mandatory vaccination orders.

The city informed it’s staff this week they must prove they are double dosed by November 29.

Peace Officer Montana Kasper has informed officials he won’t be following the order and is now waiting for the other shoe to drop. City officials still haven’t informed staff what will happen to those who don’t get vaccinated.

“But it says it’s a ‘condition of employment’ so I take it that it could mean losing a job,” said Kasper, a peace officer for two years.

“For it to be a mandatory order, I think it violates our rights as protected under the constitution,” he said in an interview with the Western Standard.

Kasper noted the letter signed by 3,500 health care workers sent to Alberta Health Services protesting the forced vaccination order and lettters of opposition written by doctors like Calgary’s Eric Payne, and the letter of protest signed by hundreds of City of Calgary workers.

Asked what he would do as a peace officer if he was told to arrest someone for not being vaccinated, Kasper replied: “I would probably refuse the order,” noting the “atrocities committed across the country by police that violated the rights of people.”

Kasper said he will now contact a lawyer in preparation for filing a lawsuit if his case gets to that.

    The Police of Canada have started a group called Police On Guard (POG). These are police officers who are bonding together to fight against being forced into breaking the Canadian Charter of Rights. When they are told it is their job. They swore to protect people’s Rights and now are the one’s being forced to break them. Support POG!!

    Yui , Hinshaw, Notley, Kenney (yes I admit I voted for him, much to my regret) are only kept afloat because they’ve managed to enforce a cone of silence to protect their lie through gag orders. The lie stands because of pressure & coercion of Unions & the various colleges gagging Pharmacists, Doctors, Labs, Nurses & Paramedics. What they’re doing is despicable & will be exposed when good people have nothing left to lose & expose it all with truth. I applaud him for taking a stand & I hope many more police at every level come to their senses & refuse to enforce the tyranny of people who need to be prosecuted & put in jail. Are we so naive as to think that dear old Gladys from Australia is the only rotten apple in a barrel of putrid, soulless monsters?

    To the people who say that the vaccine doesn’t work, I suggest you go to the hospital and find a patient sick with the covid and ask them if they had the double shot. It might surprise you.

Everyone complicit in anybody getting fired, missing out on an education, etc; remember. we the people will remember and you WILL pay to the full extent of the law. Saying I was just following orders is no excuse, you WILL pay for carrying out those orders.

    CN Rail is forcing mandates on its employees for November 1st. Many hundreds of employees across the system won’t vaccinate leading to supply problems due to staff shortages. My friend tells me there will be employees fired on the 1st from Atlantic Canada to the pacific.

    Gonna be a bad winter due to forced vaccinations. Police, doctors, nurses and transportation employees will be pushed to the breaking point this winter to fill shortages. Lack of vitamin d, poor rest, long hours seems like a reciepe for disaster for those left working, but hey they are vaccinated and we know how well that is working.

    I am getting so sick of everyone trying to mandate something that hasn’t be proven to work. I know people doing the testing and they majority of their positive cases are double vaxxed. Now that they approved the 3jab no one is fully vaxxed any more.

    CDC Data Highlights COVID Vaccination is More Dangerous than COVID Infection for Young Adults

    According to the CDC data for every 100,000 young people vaccinated 700 will require medical care and 200 will be hospitalized. Put another way, 200 young people will suffer side-effects that require hospitalization for every 100,000 vaccinations administered. However, also according to the CDC data, the CDC estimates that only about 50 out of 100,000 adolescents have EVER been hospitalized for Covid-related illness.

    That means the rate of hospitalization from the COVID vaccine is four times greater than the rate of hospitalization from exposure to the virus itself.

    Why would any young person in their right mind increase their risk of hospitalization by taking the vaccine?

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.

Feds threaten regulated businesses with COVID fines

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

If they don’t mandate vaccination of workers, the Labour department is threatening to levy cash fines against airports, banks, radio stations and other federally-regulated employers, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

But the Liberals stopped short of repeating an earlier threat to strip workers of legal rights to challenge vaccine orders.

“It is time to move on,” said Government House Leader Mark Holland.

“Get vaccinated. That’s what Canadians expect to have happen.

“I think the country understands we have now 90% of Canadians who have had their first injection, over 86% with their second. All workplaces across the country” should promote vaccinations, he added.

The labour department in a statement said it would rewrite the Canada Labour Code to mandate vaccination for some 955,000 private sector employees in federally regulated sectors like air transportation, banking, broadcasting, grain milling, marine shipping, railways and interprovincial trucking.

First Nations businesses will be exempt.

“Employers who do not comply with their obligations under the Canada Labour Code may be subject to compliance and enforcement measures including administrative monetary penalties,” the notice said.

“The government will consult with key stakeholders, including representatives of small and medium-sized employers, as it works expeditiously to finalize the new regulations which would come into force in early 2022. The government will also develop resources to help federally regulated workplaces implement the COVID-19 vaccination requirements.”

The notice made no reference to a liability shield proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the election campaign. Trudeau on September 1 said a re-elected Liberal cabinet would shield employers from any legal challenge of vaccination orders.

“We’ll stand firm on our commitment,” said Trudeau, adding: “We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits.”

Canadians who declined a COVID-19 shot were “more than just wrong, because everyone’s entitled to their opinion, they are putting at risk their own kids and they’re putting at risk our kids as well,” said Trudeau.

“What about my choice to keep my kids safe? What about our choices to make sure we’re getting through this pandemic as quickly as we can?”

The Liberal Party in its September 1 campaign platform stated: “A re-elected Liberal government will table legislation to ensure every business and organization that decides to require proof of vaccination from employees and customers can do so without fear of a legal challenge.”

Compulsory vaccination breaches federal law, according to a May 19 statement by Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien and 1996 National Immunization Report by the Department of Health.

Firearms lobby group shoots down Liberal move to decriminalize gun laws

The Liberal government is moving again to eliminate the mandatory minimum prison (MMPs) times handed to people convicted of some gun crimes.

The Liberal’s move to decriminalize numerous firearms laws show they are only interested in punishing legal gun owners, says the executive director of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association.

“It must seem obvious to anyone that the Liberal’s real agenda is to persecute and punish lawful firearms owners — by definition, the people that don’t break the law. Every time a new Liberal gun control measure is announced, it is directed at the law-abiding while the punishments for real criminals are lessened,” Tony Bernardo told the Western Standard.

The Liberal government is moving again to eliminate the mandatory minimum prison (MMPs) times handed to people convicted of some gun crimes.

A proposed Liberal bill would affect 14 Criminal Code sections and six drug-related offences.

The gun offences that would see MMPs dropped include possessing a restricted firearm with ammunition, weapons trafficking, discharging a firearm while committing an offence, reckless discharge of a firearm, and extortion and robbery with a firearm.

It follows a similar bill the party introduced in February that died without being passed when the election was called in August.

It would remove MMPs from 13 firearms offences and one for a tobacco offence.

MMPs would remain for murder, treason, impaired driving and sexual offences, as well as a some firearms offences.

“The Liberal’s C-5 has nothing to do with helping marginalized Canadians and everything to do with protecting the predators of our society,” said Bernardo.

“Yet, they are willing to spend billions to take competition rifles from sportspersons under the guise of making us safer. Where are the promised protections to the urban Canadians that have their neighbourhoods ravaged every week by drugs, gangs, and violence?

“Why has this government forsaken the people in rural areas that have their hard-earned property stolen with impunity? Where are the safe streets these political carpetbaggers sell every election? Where is the outrage from Canadians as the Liberals lie their way through another mandate?”
