FEDS: ‘Mandatory vaccination must be benevolent’

“We need to look after each other. We need to protect everyone from this terrible disease.”




Governments who bring in mandatory vaccination programs must mean well, says the federal health minister.

“On vaccine mandates, the key word here is benevolence,” said Jean-Yves Duclos Duclos, speaking with reporters in Ottawa.

“We need to look after each other. We need to protect everyone from this terrible disease.”

Blacklock’s Reporter said Duclos’ remarks followed a threat by Québec to levy Canada’s first mandatory vax tax on unvaccinated residents. Most Québecers, 82%, are fully vaccinated.

Duclos on Wednesday said he was unsure about Quebec’s proposed enforcement measure.

“We are awaiting details,” he said.

“We want people to be protected against COVID and as they protect themselves against the disease they also protect others in their living or their work places. No one, I believe, is thinking or certainly speaking of forcibly physical vaccinating people in Canada.”

“We are all on board when it comes to supporting universality of access to health care across Canada. That being said, we need to remind everyone that vaccination is the way out of this wave.”

The 1985 Canada Health Act in its preamble promises “access to quality health care without financial or other barriers.” Section 10 of the Act also guarantees “one hundred percent” of residents in any province are entitled to the same medicare coverage on the same terms “in order to satisfy the criterion respecting universality.”

Duclos would not comment when asked to confirm a Québec charge on unvaccinated residents would be unlawful. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also declined comment.

“Different jurisdictions are making different decisions about how to encourage people to get vaccinated and as a federal government we will be continuing to be there to support them in those decisions and to make sure that everyone gets vaccinated,” said Trudeau.

“Do you think this is the right or legal way?” asked a reporter.

“We have received the proposal with interest. There is a lot more details we have to hear on how this would work.”

“Is that in itself a violation of the Canada Health Act?” asked a reporter.

“We’re not going to descend into hypotheticals right now,” replied Trudeau.

“How far are you willing to go?” asked a reporter.

“I continue to work with health experts to look at how we can encourage more and more people to get vaccinated,” replied Trudeau.

    It is not only a society run amok but a stampede by the creatures that are a cross between sheeple and lemmings to the Rockies in search for political cliffs to cast themselves off in their objective to dash their heads on rocks and thus gain the ability to vote for any fool whose last name is turdo.

Will the next decade find anything good coming out of Kweebec in the next century or will the spawn of deadhead leftist loons still be the only source of emasculated soy boy fake leaders and/or their matched artificial politically corrupt vagina suit wearing females to slither out of their nests?

    “I continue to work with health experts to look at how we can encourage more and more people to get vaccinated,” replied Trudeau

    The Health Experts are as inept and corrupt as “Climate Experts”. One would think the premiers and politicians would be intelligent enough to do some research on their own and realize there is something wrong with what “Health Experts” are telling them. We all realize the intellectual level of Trudeau so we would not expect him to know anything but what he is told.

    It is without any doubt the COVID virus was engineered by the lab in Wuhan China and released either by accident or on purpose. There is something far larger taking place in the world than what is apparent. The mandatory vaccination and the segregation and vilification of the unvaccinated make no sense when the vaccinated can catch and spread the virus. Why then are most political leaders pushing this so hard? Our economies are devastated, citizens are under government control and our children are being subjected to loss of education and governments and courts taking parents’ rights away making children more under the control of the state. The governments have people so terrified of COVID they subject themselves to government control without any questions and governments have vaccinated vilifying unvaccinated, so they blame unvaccinated for the problems and don’t stop and think about what the governments are doing.

    What is the real reason for the insane lockdown of society?

    Those of us who do our own research know about the staggering VAERS numbers. If you want the reality of those statistics to sink in, look up how many young professional athletes have been falling over dead from heart attacks lately. They may be able to find excuses for why older people are dying post vaccination, but healthy young people collapsing around the world is hard for even the MSM to ignore.

    If there were any “benevolence” and Duclos had a functioning brain, the Mandatory vaccination idea would be in the trashcan seconds after thinking it up. The key is EARLY TREATMENT WITH THINGS THAT ACTUALLY WORK. I will ask it again:

    1. Why are doctors prevented from providing early treatment? on pain of losing their medical licenses?

    2. Why are doctors prevented from using their judgment if they decide to prescribe things like ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquin, in providing early treatment?

    3. Why are pharmacies being prevented from filling prescriptions for things like ivermectin, (etc.) if a doctor provides early treatment and prescribes it?

    It is clear that early treatment with various things (see 2 above) works like a damn. Exhibits A to D are: Trump, Guiliani, Joe Rogan, Dan Bongino.

    Duclos must have had to look up “benevolent” in a dictionary. And then try to use it in a sentence for a couple of hours.

    The vaxxed designed for the Alpha variant has no effect on Omicron. It doesn’t protect from catching Covid, nor does it stop the vaxxed from transmitting Covid. Health data across the provinces are showing this.
    It has a long list of serious adverse side effects including death. Long term effects on health still are unknown, but new German research indicates that it suppresses the natural immune system.
    But our government is still pushing these shots and booster’s. We’re there is risk there must be choice.
    The vaccinated would do well to take their protection and support the UN vaxxed whom refuse to comply with forced vaccination. We are all in this together. We lose our freedom of choice so do you. https://elcolectivodeuno.wordpress.com/2022/01/03/official-german-government-data-suggests-the-fully-vaccinated-will-develop-acquired-immunodeficiency-syndrome-by-the-end-of-january-2022/

    Internal hospital data confirm a huge increase in patients with vaccine side effects in 2021
    By: Alex Berenson, January 12, 2022:

    At many hospitals, the number of patients reported to have post-vaccine injuries rose fivefold or more after Covid vaccines were introduced in December 2020, medical records databases show.

    For example, one database including 100 institutions included more than 8900 reports in 2021, compared to fewer than 2000 in 2019 and 2020. A different system reported an increase from 162 in 2019 to more than 1100 in 2021.

    Several people with access to different databases provided the figures, on the condition that they remain anonymous, as the databases are proprietary and confidential. All the databases showed a similar increase, ranging from four-fold to more than 10-fold.

    The rise parallels the massive increase in vaccine injuries and deaths reported to VAERS – the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System – in 2021. Over 740,000 VAERS reports were submitted last year, compared to 50,000 in 2020. Of the 2021 reports, 700,000 were Covid related.

    Vaccine advocates insist that VAERS reports are unreliable and do not prove causation because anyone can submit a VAERS report. The figures in these databases cannot be similarly dismissed. Access to them is strictly limited – and represents the clinical judgment of the physicians treating patients.

    The increase is particularly stunning because American medical records systems won’t accept a newly created code meant for the reporting of Covid-specific vaccine injuries. The problems can only be recorded as non-specific vaccine injuries, using an earlier diagnosis code.

    That earlier code, called T50.Z95A, is the one which has shown the huge increases in 2021.

    Further, hospitals receive no financial benefit from including the T50.Z95A code in patient records. Adding the code does not increase the reimbursement they receive. Thus, aside from accurately documenting what is happening to their patients, they have no incentive to record vaccine injuries.

    There are many people at my work place who are sick with covid and they are all triple vaxxed.

    These “vaccines” do not prevent illness and most importantly they do not prevent transmission. The pharma companies and health experts agree on this. So there is no point in making this mandatory unless they have some sick agenda which I believe they do.

    Duclos is illiterate scum/vermin.

    Also, a few days after the US election in November, 2020 both Pfizer and ModeRNA came out with announcements on their vaccines (not really vaccines so erroneously using the word). By late December, 2020 they were already being administered to the elderly and shortly after that the rest of the population. In contrast 2 months ago Novavax applied for emergency approval in Canada. Novavax is a traditional vaccine. Why is it being held up?

    Duclos . . . just another clueless Politician . . . hope he is Tripple VAXED ! ! !

    Bet he is Taking Cash from the Gates Foundation & Pfizer . . .

    I just want to explain with science, the lies, the corruption, the propaganda… And about the harm from the vaccines. Because I’m an expert in public health and science.”

    Astrid Stuckelberger has 30 years of experience as a researcher. In the years 2009-13, she was affiliated with the WHO, with pandemics as her specialty. She has published 180 publications and 12 books.

    In an interview with a Norwegian outlet, Stuckelberger said she is most worried because the jabs are not vaccines, “but a biotechnological, synthetic experiment”.
    Stuckelberger also underscored that the “WHO is not the same organization as before”. There was a change in 2016, she explained.

    “It was special: Organizations such as GAVI – the Global Alliance for Vaccine Immunization led by Bill Gates – they came to WHO in 2006 with funding. Since then, the WHO has developed into a new type of international organization. GAVI gained more and more influence, and total immunity, more than the diplomats in the UN. GAVI can do exactly what they want, the police can do nothing.”

    The WHO underwent an audit in 2014 and after that, it became more like a company with countries as its subsidiaries.

    “When I worked with international relations in the WHO in 2013, I saw that GAVI came in more and more. GAVI presented a global action plan for vaccination 2012-2020. That is, eight years where GAVI had everything in their hands. Bill Gates handled the vaccination, he took over.”

    Stuckelberger, who lives in Geneva, believes that vaccination must be stopped immediately. “On the grounds of the content of the vaccines. After 30 years of research, I know that when you have one, two or three case studies and you observe under a microscope, for conceptual evidence, then you do not need to do more research. What you see under a microscope is proof enough. When up to ten experts around the world see the same thing under the microscope, that’s enough.

    “In the vaccines they see graphene, parasites, metals… Therefore we should stop the vaccination, and ban all injections. Those who continue should be prosecuted.”

    According to Stuckelberger, the death rates and side effects that are reported make up only 1-10 percent of the reality. At the end of October, European EudraVigilance showed 29 000 dead, but with estimated dark numbers it could be 290 000.

    “This is not easy to know, because autopsies are not performed. There are a lot of lies and scams in science, and in the systems. The PCR test is one example, the doctor can not use it diagnostically. Doctors are paid to claim that deaths are due to Covid, based on PCR that does not work. Very often this happens without an autopsy. They say the death is due to Covid, even when it is not.”

    More lies. The narrative has collapsed. Fauci’s emails have been all released through FOIA and we know everything the government is saying is a lie. The Western Stadard goes along with the lie by not reporting this. We know the vaccines don’t work. We know the vaccines are dangerous. The Health Minister is a war criminal.

Calgary lawyer applauds Shell’s reversal of vax mandate

“The woke thing to do right now is bring in these mandates. It has nothing to do with science or safety,” said lawyer James Kitchen.




In the wake of Shell Canada temporarily removing its mandatory vaccine policy at its Scotford site in Alberta, Calgary lawyer James Kitchen called it a “good and lawful” move.

Kitchen — a civil litigation lawyer focused on constitutional rights, human rights, and health freedom — represents a number of clients in the oil and gas sector, including CNRL staffer Naomi Smart who was the first employee dismissed without cause for refusing to adhere to the mandatory vaccine policy.

“There are two potential things happening here,” Kitchen told the Western Standard in reference to Shell’s decision to change its vaccine policy at the Scotford site.

“Either Shell is concerned with defending themselves legally — as the vaccines have little to no effect on transmission — or, there are decent human beings (who) run Shell who are looking at the science and they realize this is the sensible thing to do.”

Kitchen said Shell could be “showing some good business sense” and now, after “spending all this money and realizing nothing we do will stop it (the spread of COVID-19),” they are looking to get back to work.

“The woke thing to do right now is bring in these mandates. It has nothing to do with science or safety,” said Kitchen.

When asked if the move from Shell to reverse its vaccination policy might affect the outcome of current legal cases — including some of his own — Kitchen said he’s doubtful.

“Generally speaking, the court doesn’t care. The industry does what it wants so in a strictly legal sense, no. But in a broader sense, it does matter,” said Kitchen.  

“It’s like a band-wagon effect,” he said adding if other companies follow suit, “it could give pause and change course for policymakers.”

“I don’t expect others to follow, but I’m hopeful,” said Kitchen.

Kitchen applauded Shell for what he called, “the most reasonable, lawful positions I’ve seen in a long time.

“They have chosen not to be willfully ignorant of what is good, right and lawful and have chosen against coercion and tyranny,” said Kitchen.

“I hope it’s a harbinger of things to come.”

Madu called Edmonton police chief after getting $300 distracted driving ticket

Mount Royal University political science professor Duane Bratt says Kaycee should resign.




After being pulled over by Edmonton police for talking on his cellphone while driving through a playground zone, Justice Minister Kaycee Madu then dialled up Edmonton’s police chief, CBC is reporting Monday afternoon.

CBC says they have a copy of Madu’s March 10, 2021 ticket that shows he was fined $300.

He soon phoned Dale McFee, the city’s chief of police, and discussed the ticket with him. 

“Minister Madu did contact me via the telephone concerned about a ticket. But just to be very, very clear, he never asked to get out of the ticket,” McFee told CBC News in December, adding he didn’t know exactly what was on the ticket.

“Everybody has to wear their decisions.”

McFee did say during their discussion, Madu brought up the issue of racial profiling by police to stop drivers. Madu is black.

The chief also said the pair talked about the ongoing problem of political tensions within the Lethbridge Police Service.

According to court documents, Madu paid the fee by the end of that week, CBC reports.

The Western Standard has reached out to Madu for a statement but hasn’t heard back.

The NDP quickly called for Madu to resign.

“It is wholly unacceptable for the Attorney General to engage with senior law enforcement regarding a penalty levelled against him, said NDP MLA Irfan Sabir.

Mount Royal University political science professor Duane Bratt says Kaycee should resign.

“Even if Madu didn’t call the police chief, it is a major story for the Justice Minister to receive a distracted driving ticket in a school zone. Even if it was somebody else who got the ticket (family, friend, neighbour, acquaintance, stranger), Madu still can’t call the police chief about an active case,” tweeted Bratt.

“Either Madu didn’t know that it was inappropriate to call the police chief about a ticket (which is really bad), or knew and didn’t care (which is even worse). Regardless, Madu needs to step down.

“Jean Charest resigned in 1990 as Minister of Sport for calling a judge about a case. Calling a police chief about a case is very similar. Madu needs to resign, or Kenney has to fire him.”

New Virginia Gov cancels vaccine and mask mandates first day in office

Youngkin’s second order was the elimination of mask rules for students in the state’s schools and his last directive was to abolish the vaccine mandate for state employees.




New Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin ain’t fooling around.

On his first day in office, the new Republican governor brought in a plethora of conservative orders and canceled many liberal ones after being sworn in on Saturday.

The 55-year-old for a former private equity CEO campaigned on a pledge to get rid of the teaching of critical race theory (CRT) from state classrooms. CRT is an academic practice that examines the ways in which racism operates in US laws and society.

After taking the oath of office, Youngkin moved on nine executive orders and two executive directives, with the first on the list described as a directive to “restore excellence in education by ending the use of divisive concepts, including Critical Race Theory, in public education,” as reported by the Guardian.

A total of 22 states have now taken steps to limit the teaching of CRT.

“There’s no place for critical race theory in our school system, and that’s why, on day one, I’m going to ban it,” Youngkin said in an interview with Fox News in the closing days of the campaign last fall.

Youngkin’s second order was the elimination of mask rules for students in the state’s schools and his last directive was to abolish the vaccine mandate for state employees.

Currently, COVID-19 cases in Virginia are up 288% in comparison to last winter.”

A total of 15,803 have died in the state from the virus since the pandemic began.

State Democrats, who hold a majority in Virginia’s Senate, have vowed to oppose Youngkin’s orders, meaning they are unlikely to become law.
