Feds aim to slap vax protesters with 10 years

Bill C-3 would forbid anyone from attempting to impede a doctor or nurse “in the performance of their duties” or “intentionally obstruct or interfere with another person’s lawful access” to a hospital or clinic.

A new bill being proposed by the federal government could see hospital protesters facing 10 years in prison under Criminal Code amendments.

Blacklock’s Reporter says this is the first of two election campaign bills targeting Canadians opposed to the vaccine mandates.

“I’m disappointed to have to do this,” said Attorney General David Lametti.

Bill C-3 would forbid anyone from attempting to impede a doctor or nurse “in the performance of their duties” or “intentionally obstruct or interfere with another person’s lawful access” to a hospital or clinic.

“We have all seen the protests during the pandemic,” Lametti told reporters.

“Even this week Covid deniers were trying to stop children from receiving vaccinations. Imagine trying to stop a child from receiving a potentially life-saving vaccine.”

Calling it a “new intimidation offence,” Lametti said the goal of the legislation would “make it illegal for anyone to deliberately make a health care worker or someone assisting them so afraid they cannot do their job,” adding it would also extend to those wishing to access health care services.

Although Lametti said federal law is already in place to prohibit uttering threats, unlawful assembly and damage to property, he added, “These amendments would give police and prosecutors additional tools.”

In a released document, the Department of Justice stated the bill “does not affect workers’ rights to take labour action,” and will not restrict picket lines in contract disputes.

“Canadians who want to express their opinions in a peaceful way will be able to continue to do so,” said Lametti.

“However those freedoms do not extend to people who intimidate, harass, obstruct or threaten our front line health care professionals, support workers and users. This type of behaviour is abhorrent and unacceptable.”

While campaigning in September, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested these amendments to the criminal code.

“It is not okay that across the country hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way,” Trudeau told reporters.

“It’s unfortunate that we got here, but we think those people deserve our highest level of protection.”

While campaigning Trudeau also promised his re-elected government would grant legal immunity to employers who attempt to enforce mandatory vaccinations and prevent employees from seeking civil damages.

“We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits,” he said.

Currently, the Charter protects Canadians from mandatory immunization and these proposed changes to legislation would contradict current protections.

“Unlike some countries, immunization is not mandatory in Canada, “ the Department of Health wrote in a 1996 National Report On Immunization.

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

    When the analysis of the “pandemic” has been completed by rational people, I trust Trudeau and the health ministers will be held accountable for the deaths caused by their actions. So many people have died due to the mismanagement of this “virus” by our government and their agencies and it is time to start holding people accountable. The social and economic damage to Canada and the burden placed on taxpayers by Trudeau who has assumed the position of Dictator should have legal consequences.

    Has this gone through the courts or has it been debated in the “house” by elected politicians or is this just another of Trudeau’s dictator like mandates?

    While campaigning Trudeau also promised his re-elected government would grant legal immunity to employers who attempt to enforce mandatory vaccinations and prevent employees from seeking civil damages.

    “We’ll protect businesses that mandate vaccinations from unjustified lawsuits,” he said.

    You can grant legal immunity all you want, but at some point in time, launching legal cases and having protests are not the forms of “resistance” or “protests” that pissed off humans will be taking.

    The day will come when SHTF is the response.

    History is full of SHTF events, that didn’t end well for those imposing “rules for thee, and different rules for me”.

    No one has done MORE to restrict Dr. & Nurses from doing their jobs than the Federal & Provincial Govts. and their bogus Health Depts.

    Lametti is just another far-left anti-Science Moron . . . just like Justin, Christa and so many more of them . . . Most sane Drs. will tell you the VAX is far more dangerous for children than Covid which barely bothers them.

    But in the upside down illogical world of Leftist Fascism . . . anything can be real . . . and of course the FakeStream Media echoes the insanity.

    I’ve long been saying the jabbed have been GRAPHENATED; as they’ve yet to isolate the virus, so creating a vaccine is impossible.
    New data supplied by Dr. Andreas Noack who is one of Europe’s pre-eminent specialists in the carbon field; clarifies that it is Graphene Hydroxide that’s the problem, not Graphene Oxide.

    “It cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution.” They violate the Constitution all the time on a whim. Why should this be any different? The one thing the People have on our side is that Trudeau and his cabinet are pathetic excuses for men and don’t have the balls to take it all the way. He was emasculated long ago. Trudeau wishes he was Joseph Stalin but he is no man of steel! Or even a man at all!

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.
