Blood Services staffer fired after claiming religious grounds to avoid COVID jab

Wilson told management his religious beliefs “conflict with receiving a COVID-19 vaccination” and that taking a shot “would be a betrayal of God and deliver ownership of my body and soul to the state in violation of the first commandment.

Even though the health department has called mandatory vaccination unconstitutional, a staffer at Canadian Blood Services (CBS) fired an employee after he claimed religious exemption from vaccination, said Blacklock’s Reporter.

CBC is a non-profit agency regulated by the Department of Health,

“I was shocked,” said Gabriel Wilson, 27, an Ottawa customer support representative fired November 17.

“I was just devastated. I am scared about what this means.”

CBS on September 1 adopted a vaccination policy that asked all employees to disclose their medical status, but Wilson sought a religious exemption as an observant Catholic who had worked from home since the outbreak of the pandemic on March 11, 2020.

“I have worked remotely for 20 months,” Wilson said in an interview.

“At one point managers even asked if I was okay to continue working from home. I pose zero risk to co-workers.”

Wilson told management his religious beliefs “conflict with receiving a COVID-19 vaccination” and that taking a shot “would be a betrayal of God and deliver ownership of my body and soul to the state in violation of the first commandment, ‘Thou shalt have no other gods before me.’”

His request was denied.

Wilson was immediately suspended without pay and fired 10 days later.

“The purpose of the policy is to continue to protect the health and safety of all employees, donors and volunteers from the spread of COVID,” management wrote in a notice to Wilson.

“As an organization, Canadian Blood Services has a duty to safeguard the well-being, health and safety of all employees.”

“It was shocking to me,” said Wilson.

“I had requested a religious exemption under their own policy. I sent in my form then, bam, I was denied, put on unpaid leave for 10 days and then fired.

“They are basically telling people, ‘Shut up and do what you are told.’ They are creating this culture of compliance.”

E-mails from management indicated vaccination rates at the agency were 98%, he added.

“They sent out a staff e-mail,” said Wilson.

“At the time I was one of one percent who had not declared their vaccination status, period. I posed no risk.”

Wilson said he was a non-unionized employee who had worked for three years at the agency.

CBS refused comment.

The health department in a 1996 National Immunization Report said mandatory immunization breached the Charter Of Rights.

“It cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution,” wrote staff.

The Treasury Board in an October 6 memo also stated managers could not legally question any sincere expression by a person claiming religious exemption from a vaccine mandate.

    It’s time we start up our own Blood Services. You can see in the future two distinct ways of survival. AHS,CBS and politicians are not looking after health of Canadians

    Yes blood from Vaxxed people is already an issue. No one wants it. Demanding clean blood.
    Yes you must demand clean blood. Best if you save your own and store it with a reputable service.

    I suspect that the religious exemption provisions in many of these company’s vaccination policies is a “honey-pot” that is designed to lure employees into revealing their vaccination status thinking that they might be accommodated. The truth is that applying for this exemption probably makes dismissal risk-free for the company in the eyes of their lawyers. I doubt many, if anybody is actually succeeding in obtaining these exemptions in most of these companies. My personal opinion (not legal advice) is that you might better off not revealing your vaccination status, especially if you are working from home and argue against it on privacy grounds. If religious protections actually mattered to these evil companies, then that would go hand-in-hand with any sincerely-held personal belief and you wouldn’t need to “apply” for anything. You’re probably going to lose your job in either case but these companies are in no position to judge the adequacy of your religious beliefs and I don’t think that we should be ingratiating this beast.

    The CCP-Coronavirus CONdemic is a power grab by leftists who typically believe that THEY know better than EVERONE ELSE. They do not understand that they are merely pawns of satan.

    The ‘clot shot’ is designed to create long-term illness and dependency AND, ‘normalize’ the presentation of a digital ‘signature, to be ‘allowed’ to do virtually ANY transaction. The ‘mark of the beast’? No, but an attempt to ‘normalize’ the usage of such a ‘mark’.

    Lies often don’t make any sense.

    Mrna treatments aren’t vaccines. They don’t stop anyone getting or transmitting any corona virus let alone Covid.

    Yet governments around the world are doing their level best to coax or coerce you into injecting the experimental material into your body.

    Why?

    Going forward is blood from VAXED citizens going to be an issue?

    What would be the reaction of an Unvaxed person to a pint of Vaxed “spike protein” Blood?
    No one knows . . .

    In Britain today in the under 60 crowd, the Vaxed are dying at twice the rate of the un-vaxed . . . is that going to be an issue here?

    The least of our problems going forward is whether Blood Services Employees are Vaxed.
    The reality is the VAX is a dismal failure after a few months, and the idiot Dr. Fauci claims you may have to take Boosters for life.

    Remember folks we are 10 months into this VAX Experiment now . . . lots of surprizes to come.

    And remember Do NOT VAX your children . . .

    It totaly makes no sense to a lot of us. The vaccine does not stop you from transmitting the virus. Nor does it stop you from getting covid. Infact there is evidence that say’s the vaccinated transmit it more effectively than non vaxed. Yet no one debates. Listens or even entertains the idea that maybe this whole thou shalt be vaccinated or else senario could be wrong. Where is the open discussion. Where is the dialog. Where is the treatment of the symptoms. Oh yea. Cant do that because the money train would derail.

Ottawa press gallery discusses letting Chinese propaganda agency in

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.

Officials with the Parliamentary Press Gallery held a behind closed doors meeting on Tuesday to talk about letting reporters from Xinhau, the Chinese Community Party’s propaganda agency, into the club, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

“The gallery is not bound by any outside political considerations,” said gallery president Catherine Levesque of the National Post. 

“We are doing our due diligence to ensure Xinhua meets certain criteria and we will be making a decision shortly.”

Xinhua has been accused of misusing press privileges at the direction of Chinese diplomats.

“Membership in the Parliamentary Press Gallery allows access to the secure physical buildings of the parliamentary precinct and the opportunity to directly question individuals who drive and shape public policy,” gallery directors wrote in a 2020 code Journalistic Principles And Practices.

“As a result, accreditation is a privilege, not a right.”

Xinhua had been a member until 2020 when its press pass lapsed.

The Department of National Defence in 2012 blacklisted the agency from attending its press briefings, and a Xinhua correspondent in 2012 disclosed he was asked to maintain surveillance on Chinese dissidents in Canada.

The gallery would not discuss the Xinhua application but the gallery code states members must “respect the rights of people involved in the news.”

The Commons by a unanimous 266-0 vote last February 22 condemned China for human rights atrocities including the genocide of its Uyghur Muslim community. MPs also voted to petition the International Olympic Committee to relocate the 2022 Winter Games from Beijing.

“We need to move forward, not just as a country but as a world, on recognizing the human rights violations that are going on in China,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier told reporters.

“This is an issue that matters deeply to me, to all Canadians, and we will continue to work with our partners and allies on taking it seriously.”

Xinhua was originally granted Press Gallery membership in 1964 at the request of then-Foreign Minister Paul Martin Sr.

“It is a step in the direction of mutual understanding between Canada and mainland China,” Martin said at the time. Membership was approved in a press credentials swap that saw the Communist Party permit the Globe & Mail to open a Beijing bureau.

PHA head says cellphone snooping fears unwarranted

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.

The president of the Public Health Agency (PHA) says Canadians need not fret over the fact his organization snooped on 33 million cellphone users, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

Dr. Harpreet Kochhar said managers at no time collected information that personally identified any of 33 million cellphone users.

“No personal information was asked or was received,” Kochhar told the Commons health committee.

“No individually identifiable data is contained in any part of the work.”

The Commons ethics committee last Friday voted 10-0 to examine the data collection program using cellphone tower tracking. The PHA said it sought the information to monitor compliance with lockdown orders.

“The actual reason why we collected this data is reliable, timely and relevant public health data comes out of it for other policy and decision making,” said Kochhar.

“This is population-level mobility data analysis. This is what we have collected.

“That would help us to understand the possible link between the movement of populations within Canada and the impact on COVID-19. We did that in terms of a very clear way of getting that open and transparent means of collection. We never, ever actually know when we use that information that it is individually identifiable. It is aggregated data.”

MPs on the ethics committee earlier noted cellphone users were never told the PHA was collecting the cellphone tracking data. Conservative MP John Brassard (Barrie-Innisfil, Ont.), noted the scope of the monitoring was only detailed when the Agency issued a December 17 notice to contractors to expand the program.

“It becomes increasingly concerning that government is seemingly using this pandemic as a means and a cause for massive overreach into the privacy rights of Canadians,” said Brassard.

“As parliamentarians, it’s incumbent upon us to make sure we protect those rights, that there is proper scrutiny and oversight.”

“The Public Health Agency was collecting data without the knowledge of Canadians, effectively doing it in secret. We need to know what security measures were in place to protect the privacy rights of Canadians.

“It is vital we do not allow the COVID response to create a permanent backslide of the rights and freedoms of Canadians including their fundamental right to privacy.”

Health Minister Duclos has no info on $150-million COVID contract to SNC-Lavalin

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.

SNC-Lavalin was given a $150-million sole-source contract to provide “urgently” needed field hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic — but Canada’s Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos doesn’t seem to know much about it, says Blacklock’s Reporter.

The field hospitals were never used.

“This is obviously in support of the needs at the request of provinces and territories,” said Duclos.

But testifying at the Commons health committee, Duclos had no answer when asked why the contract was issued.

“What is the status of the mobile field hospitals SNC-Lavalin was contracted to produce?” asked Conservative MP Shelby Kramp-Neuman (Hastings-Lennox, Ont.).

“It was an example of the significant level of preparation that we did throughout the crisis,” replied Duclos.

“Why have the field hospitals from SNC-Lavalin not been deployed?” asked Kramp-Neuman.

Duclos replied he had no information on “the exact nature of the state of that equipment.”

“Did the Prime Minister’s Office approve of this?” asked MP Kramp-Neuman.

“That’s a public works question,” replied Duclos.

“We’re not getting a lot of clarity here,” said MP Kramp-Neuman, adding: “The buck stops with you. Sadly, I recognize you don’t have all the answers to everything, but it doesn’t seem like we’re getting a lot of answers to anything.”

An unidentified Department of Public Works manager finalized the SNC-Lavalin contract on April 9, 2020 without notice to other bidders.

“A public call for tenders was not issued due to the urgency of the need as a result of the pandemic,” said an internal e-mail.

However, as late as Sep. 9, 2020, the Québec contractor had still not fixed a delivery date, according to staff emails.

Paul Thompson, deputy minister of public works, Tuesday said he knew little of the contract details.

“I personally don’t have all the details at my fingertips,” said Thompson.

SNC-Lavalin was paid to supply field hospitals equipped with 200 hospital beds, ventilators, masks, medical gowns and ten days’ worth of medication, back-up generators, water and oxygen tanks, X-ray machines, shower bays and latrines.

“The self-sufficiency of the unit makes it extremely flexible for deployment where the need is greatest in Canada,” said a memo.

Internal records dated Oct. 13, 2020 disclosed no one wanted the field hospitals.

The department said spending included $2 million for design work and millions more on warehousing medical supplies for presumed future use.
