Unvaccinated MPs to be treated like Soviet spies

The last MP refused entry to the House was Soviet spy Fred Rose (Cartier, Que.), expelled in 1947.




MPs who refuse to get vaccinated are set to be treated like Communist spies and expelled from the Commons.

Blacklock’s Reporter says the last MP refused entry to the House was Soviet spy Fred Rose (Cartier, Que.), expelled in 1947.

Only two others since Confederation were denied their right to sit in the Commons, none for medical reasons.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday said the 44th Parliament will open with a Throne Speech on November 22, and that he expected all MPs to be fully vaccinated.

But the Prime Minister’s Office has no authority to compel vaccination of MPs under House Procedure And Practice rules.

“Among the first orders of business will be working with all parties to ensure all MPs in the House of Commons are fully vaccinated against COVID-19,” Trudeau’s office wrote in a statement.

“Canadians expect their elected representatives to lead by example in the fight against the virus, and the prime minister will be raising this with other leaders.”

However, house rules forbid any action that “obstructs or impedes any Member or officer of the House in the discharge of their duties.”

Unvaccinated MPs could only be forbidden from entering the House by a majority vote.

Only three MPs have been denied their seat since Confederation.

Louis Riel was expelled in 1875 following his conviction for treason.

MP Thomas McGreevy was expelled in 1891 for soliciting $200,000 in kickbacks from federal contractors in Québec City and was subsequently convicted of conspiracy.

Rose, a Communist agent, was denied his seat in 1947 after being sentenced to six years’ imprisonment for violating the Official Secrets Act.

Dr. Howard Njoo, deputy chief public health officer, told reporters Friday the Public Health Agency was not consulted by the Prime Minister’s Office on whether all MPs must be vaccinated.

Dr. Theresa Tam, chief public health officer, said even fully vaccinated people should continue to wear masks, observe physical distancing and resort to frequent handwashing.

    This is DEADLY SERIOUS. Only VOTERS have the power to determine who sits in Parliament and who doesn’t. Our representatives are elected by WE THE PEOPLE, not by the Prime Minister and not by Cabinet. They represent US and work for US and not for some dopey marxist dictator Crime Minister. The most Trudope is allowed to do is kick his own MP’s out of party caucus, and only for serious public misdemeanours and not over private health decisions. He has NO AUTHORITY AT ALL to control the private medical decisions of any MPs in other parties.

    Physically sitting in Parliament is how our elected representatives REPRESENT WE THE PEOPLE to the rest of the elected body. Our Crime Minister in Chief is seeking an opportunity to rob Canadians of their voices by only having dumb, compliant sheep, pawns and cogs sitting in the House who will support his every whim.

    The Canadian Loyalists must realize their folly and become Jeffersonians. It is time for us to write our own DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. From tyrants and false demigods both far and near. It’s at least time to organize our own 21st century Canadian Boston Tea Party.

    The fact that he has little regard for these protections should concern every Canadian.

    It really annoys me when Trudeau makes comments like”Canadian’s expect their elected representatives to lead by example in the fight against the virus. First off he doesn’t know how every Canadian feels or thinks.
    Secondly he is trampling all over the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. . The Charter protects our Freedom of Choice for all Canadian’s including Elected Representatives. Trudeau is the one who needs to lead by example, protect and respect The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The citizens of Canada are protected under the medical and legal ethics of expressed informed consent, and are entitled the full protection quarantined under:
    Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
    Universal Declaration Bioethics and Human Rights
    Nuremberg Code
    Helsinki Declaration
    The fact that he has little required for these protections should concern every Canadian.

    I wonder how many high ranking Liberal, UCC, and NDP MPs got a benign placebo such as saline instead of the real deal. Interesting that Pfizer does not mandate its staff to get jab and it is also not mandatory in the American Congress and Senate.

Canada-Europe take action over COVID variant Omicron

“Emergence of Omicron, a new variant of concern reinforces the need for caution,” said Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam.




With the discovery of a new COVID-19 variant of concern (VOC) named Omicron in South Africa, the Canadian government is taking steps to limit the risk to Canadians.

Travellers arriving from countries of concern within the last 14 days will be required to quarantine pending negative COVID-19 tests. Countries of concern include South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini.

On Friday, Canada’s Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said the federal government will impose five measures in an effort to limit its spread in Canada.

Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam took to Twitter on Saturday to share her concerns over the VOC.

“Emergence of Omicron, a new variant of concern reinforces the need for caution,” wrote Tam.

The WHO has labelled Omicron as a variant of concern due to its high number of mutations and reports that early evidence suggests it could be more infectious than other variants.

Meanwhile, during a news conference on Saturday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the UK will take “targeted and precautionary measures” after two people tested positive for the Omicron variant.

One case was identified in Brentwood, a town in southeastern England while the other case was located in the central city of Nottingham. Both individuals are linked and had travelled from southern Africa. The two individuals are self-isolating along with their households and authorities are working on contact tracing.

Johnson confirmed travellers arriving in England will be required to take a PCR test and self-isolate until a negative test result is provided. Those that test positive for the new variant will have to self-isolate, along with any of their close contacts, for 10 days regardless of vaccine status.

He also said masks will be required in shops and other public spaces and indicated they will “boost the booster campaign.”

“Right now this is the responsible course of action to slow down the seeding and the spread of this new variant and to maximize our defences,” said Johnson.

Johnson said the new rules will be reviewed in three weeks when scientists know more about the variant.

On Friday, the British government added Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe to the country’s travel red list. By Saturday, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia were also added to the list.

Other countries are adding restrictions on travellers coming from various southern African countries including the US, Japan, Brazil, and Australia while cases have also been reported in Belgium, Israel and Hong Kong.

Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and the Czech Republic have also reported suspected cases related to travellers arriving from South Africa.

Road closures as British Columbians brace for more rain

Closures will impact Highway 1, Highway 3 and Highway 99 on Saturday.




As BC braces for additional rain, the government has ‘proactively’ closed a number of highways for travel.

“We are actively responding, monitoring and assessing the many highway closures due to flooding and will continue to do so as we work with local and emergency service partners,” said the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

“Safety is our top priority while we deal with a rapidly changing and difficult situation.”

Closures will impact Highway 1, Highway 3 and Highway 99 on Saturday. The ministry said the time and duration of the closures will be weather-dependent.

“The highway infrastructure in these areas is extremely vulnerable following recent storms, and more heavy rain in the forecast poses an additional risk,” said the ministry in a press release.

“The closures of these three highways will be re-evaluated on Sunday morning, with the highways reopened when it is safe to do so.”

The release said Highway 1 will be closed between Popkum and Hope on Saturday afternoon as BC Hydro plans a reservoir release, “crucial to protect the Jones Lake Reservoir, which is also being affected by the heavy rains.”

The release explains the reservoir release will discharge water towards areas of Highway 1 that were affected during the November 14 storm.  

“This additional flow – combined with the increased precipitation and already high stream flows – poses a risk of impact to Highway 1 in the Laidlaw area.”

The ministry is bracing for further damage to Highway 1 in this area and said the reopening time cannot be determined at this stage but will be assessed by crews “when it is safe to do so.”

Highway 7 between Mission and Hope remains open with travel restrictions in place. Essential purposes for travel are defined in the travel restrictions order through the Emergency Program Act

Weather statements are in effect for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, Squamish to Whistler and the Sunshine Coast into next week. Storms are expected to bring more rain which has resulted in high streamflow advisories for all regions of the coast by the River Forecast Centre.

Ongoing road and travel updates are available on the ministry’s website.

Bill to aid jurors traumatized by testimony up for vote … again

Bill C-206 would amend a 1972 secrecy law to permit jurors to disclose confidential details of deliberations for the purpose of “medical or psychiatric treatment or any therapy or counselling.”




For the third time in three years, legislators will attempt to pass an aid bill for jurors traumatized by graphic testimony in criminal courts.

“When we ask citizens to be a juror we don’t ask them to be a victim,” said Quebec Senator and bill sponsor Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu.

“There is no excuse not to adopt that bill.” 

Bill C-206 would amend a 1972 secrecy law to permit jurors to disclose confidential details of deliberations for the purpose of “medical or psychiatric treatment or any therapy or counselling,” said Blacklock’s Reporter.

Two identical bills, S-207 and C-417, lapsed in the last two Parliaments.

“That kind of bill should be a government bill, not a private bill,” said Boisvenu.

“I don’t think it’s a matter of private interest. It’s a matter of national interest.”

In 2017, the Commons justice committee recommended the Criminal Code amendment after hearing testimony from former jurors who said they quit jobs, suffered marriage breakdown and were diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after being compelled to watch crime scene videos and hear testimony from coroners.

“Everyone’s mental health matters,” Ontario Senator Lucie Moncion said Thursday.

“Yet from a legal point of view, jurors are part of a special category of people who are denied complete health care. The secrecy rule prohibits a juror from disclosing information related to deliberations to anyone including a health care professional. This needs to change.”

Moncion was a juror in a 1989 murder trial and said the experience left her with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“They show you the whole autopsy,” said Moncion.

“It was very difficult. This is still very difficult for me.”

Alberta Conservative MP Michael Cooper, a member of the 2017 Commons justice committee that recommended reforms, said delays were inexcusable.

“It should have been a no-brainer for the government to have brought this bill forward,” said Cooper indicating the bill has been “studied thoroughly.”

“There have literally been no arguments tendered against this piece of legislation.”

Cooper, in 2019, sponsored a similar bill – C-417 – that lapsed. MPs at the time noted U.S. jurors were free to discuss their experience with friends, family, psychiatrists or media.

“In the United States once a trial is over jurors are generally free to discuss the events of the trial and jury deliberations unless a specific court order bars them from doing so,” said Ontario Liberal MP Arif Virani, then-parliamentary secretary for justice.

“What that means is that jurors in the United States can talk with nearly anyone about juror deliberations including a talk show host on national television or across the Internet. This approach, which offers limited protection for juror privacy, is significantly different from the Canadian model.”
