CBC to seal buildings to the unvaxxed

CBC will ban unvaxxed visitors from all their buildings in the most extreme COVID-19 precaution of any Crown corporation, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The ban on unimmunized people includes the general public, contractors and TV and radio guests.

“These newly established requirements are in line with public health guidance and the government’s unvaccinated expectations for Crown corporations including CBC,” Marco Dubé, vice-president of the network, wrote in a note to employees.

But no other managers of any federal buildings, including penitentiaries, have imposed a complete ban on unvaccinated visitors.

The Commons’ Board of Internal Economy has said even House galleries will be open to unvaccinated members of the public who can prove a negative COVID-19 test.

“Since the onset of the pandemic CBC has taken the necessary health and safety measures to ensure everyone who accesses our facilities remains safe,” wrote Dubé.

“Vaccination continues to be one of the most effective tools in the response to Covid-19. As a result, we will soon be implementing vaccination requirements for all persons who access our facilities.

“Starting December 1 CBC will require all third parties — contractors, subcontractors, guests, independent producers, etcetera — who work at or visit any CBC location, including rented spaces, to be fully vaccinated. Proof of vaccination may be required. Any individual who does not meet this requirement will be refused access.”

The CBC operates 27 television stations and 88 radio stations nationwide in addition to a 35,450-sq.- ft. newsroom in Ottawa, its 10-storey, $380 million headquarters on Toronto’s Front Street, and a 24-storey office tower in Montréal.

Network managers Thursday said the compulsory vaccination order would be strictly enforced.

“CBC reserves the right to audit compliance with these new requirements including by requesting proof of vaccination for specific individuals or a more detailed attestation of compliance,” Dubé.

CBC introduced the visitors’ ban though 75% of employees are already vaccinated, by company estimate, and 80% of employees worked at home from the onset of the pandemic on March 11, 2020.

    I would consider being banned from a CBC building a great honor!

    In the last two Canadian taxpayers have been banned from freely accessing publicly owned healthcare systems paid for by those tax dollars. Now we’re being banned from freely accessing every other public space also these same tax dollars, including those institutions most vital to defending freedom, democracy, the Constitution and Charter and the rule of law, namely our media. Not that the Commie Broadcasters Corp. has ever defended any of these things, but media is still supposed to exist for this purpose in theory.

    No politician discriminates between individuals based on private medical decisions when it comes paying the taxes that all these institutions and programs. I don’t think even the CBC is ever going to do so either. But if they don’t want my unclean body in their publicly owned spaces, why should they want my unclean tax dollars in their publicly owned coffers?

    It’s simple logic; if they don’t want me, they don’t want my taxes either, and if they don’t want them, then, well, I’m not going to pay them. Same with healthcare and any other political institutional facilities that don’t want their own citizens to access them. If you don’t me then you don’t want my taxes, and if you don’t want my taxes, then you’re not my government and therefore you can’t enforce your stupid-ass rules on me, which means that I DO NOT HAVE TO AND WILL NOT SUBMIT!

    Good step, CCCP-CBC. If you would also ‘self isolate’ your broadcast, Kanadahar (Canada) would be MUCH better off. Instead of ‘broadcasting’, why not just ‘narrowcast’ within your buildings. NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR YOUR PROPAGANDA!

    STOP ACTING HUMAN

    Aliens were at the helm.
    Beggars were steering the ship.
    When and wherever love was noticed
    The aliens destroyed it.
    They hacked at hugs.
    Iksnayed kisses.
    Buddy, don’t show your face!
    Here, take a sharpie.
    Stab it deep and often.
    Then you regain your place.
    Here, in society.
    There you will quietly
    Join the non-human race.

    The Fact that the VAXED are the New Superspreaders has escaped their crack news teams attention I suspect. As the VAX wears of sometimes in less than 6 months . . . this is going to be amuzing.

    My solution would be like the ChiCommies . . . put all the CBC staff inside the buildings and then weld the doors shut like they did in Wuhan. The CBC is a vile collection of marxists & liars that would have had star billing in the old Soviet Union!

Sask Polytech ditches vax policy but burdens unvaxxed with testing costs

The Justice Centre is unsatisfied with the response of Sask Polytech and reiterated its intention to pursue legal action against the institution and against the University of Saskatchewan over its requirement for staff and students to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is unsatisfied with the decision of Saskatchewan Polytech to reverse its vaccination requirement for staff and students because the institute does not recognize natural immunity and imposes testing costs on the unvaccinated.

On November 19, the Justice Centre sent Sask Polytech and the University of Saskatchewan letters demanding they reverse their requirement that all staff and students be vaccinated by January 1, 2022. 

On December 1, Sask Polytech reversed its “vaccinated only” policy but now requires unvaccinated staff and students to comply with testing three times a week at their own expense. In a press release, the Justice Centre called this “unacceptable.”

“Such testing requirements for students are even greater than the Saskatchewan government’s requirements for employees of its ministries. Sask Poly has also failed to recognize the compelling scientific evidence of natural immunity for those who have already recovered from Covid-19 and have proof of antibodies,” reads a JCCF press release on Saturday.

“Testing costs, which could exceed $200 per week, mean that only the wealthy and privileged can bear the burden,” stated Andre Memauri, the Justice Centre’s Saskatoon-based lawyer.

“Sask Poly, which has chosen to impose discriminatory testing requirements for staff and students, has the ability to acquire these tests at wholesale cost.”

The Justice Centre said it would commence legal proceedings against Sask Poly in the Court of Queen’s Bench unless Sask Poly immediately absorbs the testing costs and recognizes natural immunity. 

On October 28, the U of S and Sask Polytech announced mandatory vaccinations for all students, staff and faculty, removing the alternative of twice weekly testing which had been in place since the start of the school year. The Justice Centre will also commence legal action against the U of S for refusing unvaccinated students. 

On November 26, Global News reported a 19-year-old student was hospitalized briefly with breathing problems after receiving the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. The student’s mother, Michelle Marciniuk, publicly called for the university to reconsider its policy.

The U of S’ policy includes exemptions on medical and religious grounds in accordance with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Code. But according to the Justice Centre, the university usually rejects exemption requests or does not respond to them for several weeks. Besides this, the university has made itself the arbiter of faith considerations for religious exemptions. Medical exemptions have become a difficult document for patients to receive in Canada, due to regulatory pressure on physicians not to provide them based on their medical judgement except in very rare circumstances.

The U of S crowns itself for academic freedom, diversity, equality, human dignity and a healthy work and learning environment, yet it has harshly terminated faculty for speaking on the hallmark principle of informed consent for Covid-19 vaccination of children,” stated Andre Memauri, a U of S alum. 

“Now, the U of S seeks to exclude and villainize those who decide for various reasons not to be vaccinated…Without question, our community has been through a great deal of difficulty and it requires these institutions to lead as vessels of science not ideology…The Justice Centre demands both schools follow the science and adopt policies that bring students together in the most safe and lawful manner.”

The letters sent to both schools from the Justice Centre on November 19 warned that the schools are seeking to deprive students from education on the basis of vaccination status, contrary to Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Sections 2(a), 7, and 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

CRA wants more tax filers to file online

The government’s own research shows millions of paper filers resist change.

The taxman is angry that too many Canadians are still filing by mail, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The government’s own research shows millions of paper filers resist change.

“Those who submit their taxes by mail most often say they use paper rather than filing electronically because it is simply how they prefer to do it, e.g. they do it out of habit, because ‘it’s what they are comfortable with,’ they like it, etcetera,” said a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) report.

“Just 13% cite security issues.”

Data show of 30.5 million tax returns filed this year a total 2.7 million or 9% were filed on paper. Millions of taxpayers, a total 4,234,772 including Internet filers, demanded refunds be paid by mailed cheque instead of direct deposit.

The CRA complained it would be “more timely and efficient” if all taxpayers used the Internet. The Agency spends $6.9 million annually mailing T1 general tax forms alone.

“There is still a sizable proportion of taxpayers who are conducting their business with the Canada Revenue Agency through paper rather than taking advantage of digital services which are much more timely and efficient,” said the report.

Research showed typical paper filers were working age men under 55 who completed their own return without a tax preparer, had a university degree, earned more than $80,000 a year and were more likely than other Canadians to prefer in-person teller service rather than online banking.

“The most important factor influencing why respondents file by paper instead of online is disinterest,” wrote researchers, who added: “Apathy is a barrier. Fifty percent of likely switchers say they are simply not interested in switching. Therefore the agency will have to demonstrate the value of switching.”

Findings were based on questionnaires with 2,000 taxpayers who filed returns by mail. The Agency paid Earnscliffe Strategy Group $130,061 for the survey.

The research follows a failed 2012 campaign to have all Canadians use direct deposit for payment of tax refunds and benefit cheques. The attempt by the Receiver General of Canada, the federal office responsible for processing payments, was intended to save costs. Paper cheques cost 82¢ apiece to process compared to 13¢ for electronic transfers, by official estimate.

An estimated 13% of taxpayers refused to surrender bank account information to the Receiver General. “Cheque recipients have become harder to engage,” said a 2020 Department of Public Works survey.

“A few have a general distrust of the Government of Canada’s ability to protect data,” wrote researchers. A total 23 percent of Atlantic residents said they wouldn’t rely on the government to protect their privacy, followed by 22% in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, 21% in Ontario, 19% in Alberta, 18% in BC and 12% in Québec.

WATCH: Alberta Oil drives Guilbeault to meeting with Nixon

Federal Environment Minister Stephen Guilbeault’s tour of Alberta has already kicked off with a whiff of hypocrisy.

Published

Attended by a sizable entourage, Guilbeault exited his black gasoline-powered SUV and hustled into the McDougall Centre in Calgary for a meeting with Alberta Environment Minister Jason Nixon.  

Guilbeault has dedicated most of his career to telling Canadians they need to transition from petrochemically fueled transportation. During this meeting though, Guilbeault chose not to find an utilize an electric-powered SUV in order to demonstrate his environmental virtue. With the resources of the entire federal government behind him, one would have thought that Guilbeault could have arranged appropriate transportation for his cross-Canada tour.  

It’s almost as if electric vehicles are still not ready for mainstream use yet. 

At least Guilbeault contributed to the Western economy with his conspicuous consumption of local petrochemical products.
