Majority of Canadians want the unvaxxed fired from their jobs

Many governments, airlines, police forces and private companies across the nation have brought in strict mandatory vaccination programs that could see workers lose their jobs for non-compliance.

A whopping 70% of Canadians believe doctors, nurses, teachers and police officers who don’t get vaccinated against COVID-19 should be fired from their jobs, a new poll shows.

The Angus Reid survey comes as Canadians are hoping to build on the relative progress the country has made in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, pollsters said.

“As Quebec and Ontario backtrack on vaccine mandates for healthcare workers, new data from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute finds a majority of Canadians — including in those respective provinces — support dismissing workers who refuse to get the jab across a variety of industries,” pollsters found.

Many governments, airlines, police forces and private companies across the nation have brought in strict mandatory vaccination programs that could see workers lose their jobs for non-compliance.

In October, more than 4,000 health care workers were put on unpaid leave after failing to show proof of vaccination in B.C., while Ottawa’s largest hospital recently announced it had similarly placed 186 staff on unpaid leave.

“The stakes were raised even higher when Employment Minister Carla Qualtrough recently said that it was likely that those who lose their jobs for not complying with employer vaccine mandates will not be eligible for employment insurance,” said the poll.

“There are important regional divides, with support for firing the unvaccinated highest in B.C., Atlantic Canada, and Ontario. Although support varies by profession, the Prairie provinces and Quebec are the least enthusiastic about these measures overall.

“While support for these measures remains deeply divided by a respondent’s own vaccination status, it is worth noting that one-in-10 unvaccinated Canadians are still in favour of dismissing airline employees (12%), medical professionals (11%), teachers (11%), and first responders (10%) if they don’t have the jab.”

Partisan loyalties appear to be another good indicator of support for dismissing unvaccinated employees. Those who voted Liberal in September’s federal election are most supportive, followed closely by past NDP voters and Bloc Québécois voters. CPC supporters are most divided, depending on the profession canvassed, the poll found.

The Angus Reid Institute conducted an online survey from November 3–7, 2021 among a representative randomized sample of 1,611 Canadian adults who are members of the Angus Reid Forum. A probability sample of this size would carry a margin of error of +/- 2.5%, 19 times out of 20.

    Seems the Wheels are falling off the VAX Train . . .

    Dr. Howard Njoo, deputy chief public health officer, warned 100% vaccination was no guarantee against becoming infected with COVID-19.

    “Many people think that with vaccination it is like 100 percent protection,” said Njoo.
    “This is not the case.”

    On Nov. 12, White House CΟVID adviser Anthony Fauci, MD, went on The New York Times’ podcast The Daily to discuss the current state of the coronavirus in the U.S. According to Fauci, officials are now starting to see some waning immunity against both infection and hospitalization several months after initial vaccination. The infectious disease expert pointed toward incoming data from Israel, which he noted tends to be about a month to a month and a half ahead of us in terms of the outbreak.

    “They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly,” Fauci said. “It’s waning to the point that you’re seeing more and more people getting breakthrough infections, and more and more of those people who are getting breakthrough infections are winding up in the hospital.”

    In an interview last week with Policy Exchange, creepy Bill Gates finally admitted the dangerous COVID vaccines were not working as advertised.

    Gates is one of the leading cheerleaders for the COVID vaccines and was one of the first globalists to call for numerous and continual coronavirus shots.

    But despite the fact that the vaccines don’t work as advertised and thousands are reportedly getting sick and dying from the vaccines, the globalist elites continue to push for multiple shots.

    Let me say this slowly. THE “VACCINE” IS NOT A VACCINE IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE. ITS NOT A VACCINE.

    The definition of “vaccine” was changed to accomodate this experimental gene “therapy” that doesnt meet the definition. THE MEDIA IS NOT POINTING THIS OUT. Those that want everyone to get the “vaccine” are thinking of the traditional sense of “vaccine”. Which is a weakened bug injected into a human, which causes the immune system of that jabbed person to create its own antibodies against that bug. Which makes that person “immune” to getting that bug ever again. (Thats where the meaning of “fully immunized” comes from.)

    If you really had been given a “vaccine”, you would not be able to get covid in future. And thus would not be able to be a “carrier” of Covid and spread it to others, in future. And you would have that immunity forever, or at least for a few decades of your life.

    This is an experimental DNA altering “shot” AND NOT A VACCINE. Taking this jab means you CAN STILL GET COVID. AND SPREAD IT TO OTHERS. AND YOU NEED A “BOOSTER” SHOT IN 5 MONTHS. Those that have gotten covid and survived it, will have natural “immunity” similar to the immunity that would be conferred if the jab were a REAL vaccine (which it is not). Those people DONT NEED THE JAB (even if it WERE a real vaccine). In fact it could have very harmful effects on them–it very well may be the Globalists instrument for depopulating the planet (as Bill Gates thinks is a very good idea).

    SO WHY WOULD WE INSIST THAT EVERYONE GET THIS “SHOT” ON PAIN OF LOSING THEIR JOBS AND THEIR CIVIL LIBERTIES??? I am sure that many of the people who think this is a good idea, unconsciously think of this “vaccine” as in the usual meaning of “vaccine”, and cant understand why people would not want to take this “vaccine”. This one actually has a huge number of ugly side effects, and doesnt protect the taker from the disease—thats why.

    What is the problem with the people that don’t want to be vaccinated.
    1) The vaccine does not work very well and quickly loses potency
    2) Vaccinated people can spread the virus just like the unvaccinated
    3) Unvaccinated care workers worked for two years without any issues taking care of people. (Other than the government controlled Seniors Homes)
    4) Well trained medical personal are discussing the “vaccine” and it’s effect while media and untrained government are imposing censorship on their efforts to bring out the truth.
    5) Bias health officials are imposing their unscientific mandates on the population.
    6) Now Phizer is coming out with a new drug that imitates Ivermectin and I am sure our health services will spend billions on it rather than the $0.06 that ivermectin costs.

    If this actually reflects the broader Canadian population, it is a sad statement on how draconian most Canadians have become. They are easily caught up in media and government hysteria and will gladly weaponize the government against their neighbors, even to the point of removing their neighbors’ livelihoods.

    The poll certainly indicates canada is a communist country(group > individual). i wonder if our specific/selective immigration policy had anything to do with that?

    Do immigrants(nothing wrong) fully understand what it is to be free and what it takes?

    Canada is nothing like what they “taught” in textbooks -> it’s turned or never was free

    Can we have faith in elections? i dont think so! i truly hope WIPA can save AB but it may be time to leave

    The truly scary thing is if this poll is even close to true, 70% of all parents will sacrifice their own children to the religion of big pharma and their big experiment. The devastation will be sickening.

    If there would be no polls. If media had to rely on advertisements only instead of government pay. If big pharma the government and the vangaurd group would stay out of scientific research. There would be no pandemic.
    If The hot air and the lies that are generating billions of dollars for these groups was shut down the whole picture would be different. If the brain washed blind followers of this falsehood would step back and look at all the facts with out the bullshit that has been driven into there brains the picture would be a whole lot different.
    As the vaxxed get sicker and keep spreading the virus thinking that they are immune the situation will not correct.
    It should be he vaxed staying home and getting fired. Maybe then life could back to somewhat of a norm.

    The brainwashed masses have had the LIE fed to them for months (by their “leaders” and “experts”) that “this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated”. Lucky for the leaders in charge that the brainwashing worked, and rather than the public noticing that they were slowly being boiled in a pot, they had a scapegoat to blame for their lot. The “unvaxxed.” Too bad their their propaganda is being exposed as a fraud.

    I think the Government sponsored fear porn (with my tax dollars) is working. All media that accepted money from the liberal government should be shut down or de-funded for spreading lies and disinformation. This is no longer about health and safety its about dividing people to gain total control. People have to wake up now! We have to separate ourselves from the communist ideals of the liberal party.
    Support all media that is not funded by the state!!

    This is really serious my heart goes out to everyone who is affected in BC. Maybe if liberals banned plastic straws sooner this could have been avoided.
    As a CN employee who was pulled out of service yesterday for not getting the vaccine shot along with 700+ track maintenence employees I have to say I do enjoy looking at pictures of railway bridges falling into rivers and tracks washed out as sweet justice that someone more powerful than me is angry at CN’s mandate.

    Who can find fault with vaccine policy? Answer ; all those people that are laid off or fired.The gov figures show many thousands that have had covid and survived and presently figures show they are immune from second infection. Those that have the shots and survived are on the pace for booster shots, . looks like the immune strencthing was the right course to go. All those at AHS should look up the meaning of cockwomble it fits them to a T.

    70% of 1,000 people — Likely samples from a major metropolitan centre’s hipster neighbourhoods. Do NOT believe these polls. People are stupid, yes, but this is simply more clickbait if they do not disclose the origin of their data. With our country as divided as it is between rural and urban areas, the sampling data MUST include the origin or it is totally moot. Don’t believe this nonsense for a second, only a minority of people are hardcore into this, the rest are just trying to get along.

New Sask law exempts employers from COVID-19 lawsuits

The release bragged that Saskatchewan was one of only five jurisdictions with such extensive sexual harassment protections, but after the legislation was passed, Morgan defended the COVID-19 provisions as being common.

Employees’ quests for legal COVID-19 recourse has died with recently passed legislation that is “protecting vulnerable workers” according to Labour Minister Don Morgan.

Legislation recently passed by the Government of Saskatchewan prevents employers from being sued for implementing measures listed in the Public Employers’ COVID-19 Emergency Regulations or the Employers’ COVID-19 Emergency Regulations.

Amendments to the Saskatchewan Employment Act say “no action or proceeding lies or shall be commenced or maintained against an employer” if that employer acts in good faith.

“It’s broad general thing that would cover anything related to COVID-19 — signage, lack of signage, whatever else might reasonably arise from it. The threshold is that they must act in good faith,” said Morgan.

“We aren’t trying to target a specific lawsuit that’s been started or being threatened … But we know that COVID-19 vaccines, etc., are a worldwide issue right now and we want to be able to encourage our employers to have some comfort that they’re not going to be subject to lawsuits.”

The legislation applies regardless of when a perceived transgression may have occurred. The amendment received royal assent November 30. However, when the Saskatchewan Employment Amendment Act, 2021 was first announced in a press release November 18, nothing about COVID-19 was even mentioned.

Although the opening sentence mentioned “better and safer workplaces for employers and employees” the rest of the release concerned details about sexual harassment and union bargaining provisions.

Now the Labour Relations Board must exclude supervisors from the same bargaining unit as those they supervise, wherever possible. Sexual harassment at the workplace is now defined as any unwelcome action of a sexual nature, and provisions of the act extend beyond employees to include independent contractors, students, and volunteers.

“The legislation that governs our employers and employees needs to address the challenges of the modern work environment, including protecting vulnerable workers,” Morgan wrote in the release. “These amendments will help us build a stronger, safer and healthier Saskatchewan.”

fact sheet the release linked to concluded with a brief mention of COVID-19.

“We are introducing a provision that will provide protection for public and private sector employers that comply with the new COVID-19 vaccination regulations. These regulations give the employee the choice of showing evidence of being fully vaccinated or evidence of a negative COVID-19 test at least every seven days.”

The release bragged Saskatchewan was one of only five jurisdictions with such extensive sexual harassment protections, but after the legislation was passed, Morgan defended the COVID-19 provisions as being common.

“That’s being done generally across North America,” Morgan said.

The same day Morgan made his comments, a post on the Freedom Alliance Facebook page suggested a strong desire for legal recourse alongside skepticism, and an apparent unawareness of the new provincial law.

“Does anyone here know of any lawyers in Saskatoon that believe in the same rights and freedom as we do? I believe it’s time to really do something about losing my source of income 

“The couple lawyers I did speak with basically said the pandemic supersedes all our rights! Would be great if we found a lawyer that called out the BS! Might have to source out to other provinces,” replied Michielle Ross Noble.

“At the mine I work at they had a lawyer go to bat and it seems to be that the government is above the law and beyond the constitution. Money talks louder than laws these days,” replied Garrick Bernard.

“I also live near Saskatoon,” replied Ron Chappell. “Good luck finding a lawyer that will stand up for your rights and freedoms. Seems these evils are above the law including the Canadian charter of rights and freedoms. There should be lawsuits going on everywhere. Either we don’t hear about them or they are not happening. Justin Trudeau is [a] tyrant.”

To this Funk made what proved to be a moot reply.

“Then a group of us should band together and file lawsuits! Who’s with me?”

Maverick leader describes his perfect successor

“I am aware of three or four people who are seriously considering running for leadership,” interim leader Jay Hill told the Western Standard.

Published

Jay Hill, interim leader of the federal Maverick Party, says he hopes for a candidate for his replacement is someone that can “move the provinces and premiers towards greater autonomy for the West.”

On Wednesday, the Maverick Party released the rules for its leadership race that will see a new leader elected May 14, 2022.

The party will officially be accepting leadership applications as early as January 3 with a deadline of April 30.

Hill says he hopes to see two to six candidates apply.

“I am aware of three or four people who are seriously considering running for leadership,” Hill told the Western Standard.

“We’re more so focused on the quality side of things rather than quantity.”

The Maverick Party, formerly known as Wexit Canada, advocates for greater autonomy for Western Canadian provinces including BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the three territories.

“I’d like to see someone with the right vision and oratory skills to communicate with passion for Western Canadians,” said Hill.

Hill pointed to Quebec’s position within Canada and said the Maverick Party supports moving the western provinces in that direction.

Included in the list of rules for those interested in throwing their hat into the leadership race is a registration fee set at $10,000.

“Our governing council really struggled with that fee,” said Hill, who indicated the registration fee is still “substantially less” than any of the other federal parties.  

“We were really aiming for the right balance — that sweet spot — where you want to be realistic and make it doable and not a deterrent.

“It’s efficient to get serious contenders with serious commitment to register and not those with frivolous reasons.”

Hill, the former House leader for the Conservative Party of Canada, said he’s “too old” to run the party moving forward.

“My roll in elected office is done,” said Hill, adding he was done with the “high stress and high drama” when he quit federal politics in the fall of 2010.

When a new leader is elected in May, Hill plans to stay on and assist the party “depending on the needs of the new leader and how he or she feels I can contribute the most.”

Hill said he is excited and is looking forward to “a good, credible and lively leadership race.”

Maverick Party petition calls for carbon tax break for Canadians

Canadians will soon have to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes,” the petition reads.

mm

Published

on

The Maverick Party, with a newly launched petition, is calling on the federal government to suspend the collection of carbon taxes from Canadians from January 1 to April 1, 2022.

Carbon tax is a levy imposed on human activity that results in carbon emissions being released into the atmosphere, usually by the burning of fossil fuels like gasoline, natural gas and coal.

The petition notes although carbon taxes are designed to “change behaviour,” the rising costs of living are an “added extra burden” on taxpayers.  

The petition also says the party “understands that the cost of living is increasing at a pace that families can’t keep up with,” pointing to “skyrocketing” inflation and the cost of essential items rising.

“Many Canadians will soon have to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes,” the petition reads.

“The federal government can alleviate some of the burden by declaring a carbon tax moratorium on New Year’s Day 2022.”

The Maverick Party is demanding the government give Canadians who are “drowning financially” a break to get through what will likely be “the most expensive winter in memory,”

The Trudeau government implemented the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act in 2019 that was upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada in March of this year.

“Putting a price on carbon pollution is widely recognized as the most efficient means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also driving innovation,” the Government of Canada states on its website.
