Saskatchewan father in hiding to keep daughter from having COVID vax

Michael Jackson, 52, has joint custody of his daughter, Sarah, and has been in hiding with her for the past month.




A father from southeast Saskatchewan is in hiding with his seven-year-old daughter to keep her from getting the COVID vaccine. 

Michael Jackson, 52, has joint custody of his daughter, Sarah, and has been in hiding with her for the past month.

Jackson phoned the Western Standard from a private number following a live online interview on Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson’s popular podcast.

Jackson lives primarily with his ex-wife who also has authority over medical decisions. He has kept his daughter with him since November 10 and has not returned her to her mom for fears she will have their daughter vaccinated for COVID-19.

When news reports last November suggested approval of the vaccine for children was imminent, Jackson asked his ex-wife if she would give the vaccine to their daughter. He says she texted back and said, “I’m going to do whatever the government tells me to do.”

“I was just like, ‘Wow,’ Jackson said.

“It wasn’t like she said ‘I’m going to do what’s best for Sarah, it’s, ‘I’m going to do what I have to do, what I’m told to do.’ So I made my decision right then and there that I wasn’t going to return her,” Jackson said.

Jackson points to the video by the Canadian COVID Care Alliance “More Harm Than Good,” an assessment of Pfizer’s vaccine trials, to summarize his assessment. He said his research has left him wary that the vaccine could cause harm. He adds he shared this information with his daughter and she doesn’t want to take the vaccine either.

Last May, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration that recommended against lockdowns, told the Western Standard, “I don’t think children should be given the vaccine because … it does not benefit them. Their risk of side effects is very small. In the trials, roughly five in 1000 children 12 to 15 years old had a serious adverse event. However, the risk of a child dying from COVID infection is much less than 1 in 1000. With teenagers, the risk is a bit more, but not substantially so.”

The mother filed for a police report and the issue went to court. 

Jackson says the presiding judge told him he would lose if he tried to keep his daughter, given past court precedents had said the COVID-19 vaccine was in the best interests of children.

The judge ruled the police could come to his home and retrieve his daughter by any means necessary, but Jackson drove to Redvers, Sask. to fax in an appeal to stay the court order.

Even so, in his absence he says the RCMP came to his home in Carievale, a south-eastern Saskatchewan community of 240 people, broke down his door and took his pellet gun.

On the following Monday, Jackson made inquiries and said he was assured by a Crown attorney and an RCMP sergeant there were no charges against him.

One day that week he and his daughter walked their dog in town, prompting residents to call the RCMP. That evening multiple RCMP cruisers arrived at his house with sirens on, threatening to break down his door and take his daughter.

“They were just keeping up the pressure. So I lifted up the window and I said: ‘What’s the problem here, you guys?’ And they said, ‘Oh, you’re a liar.’ They just yelled and screamed and they wouldn’t listen to me. They said, ‘We’re coming in! We’re taking your daughter. There is no stay on the order. You lied,’ All this crap, right? Just trying to scare me, which isn’t easy to do. So I just refused,” he said.

Jackson said the officers left at the direction of their sergeant after a half-hour.

On December 6, Jackson had his court date and by phone made his appeal against the police order to retrieve his daughter. Two days later the judge ruled against him and the police were re-authorized to retrieve his daughter.

“By that time, we were already gone, and then we’ve basically been in hiding since,” Jackson says.

    @Lee the author,
    I recall on some other post you were looking for a source within SK to verify that hospitals were misrepresenting covid vaxxxed vs unvaxxed for the stats. I don’t know about that personally (although it would not surprise me). However what I do know is an RN whose whole family tested covid positive over xmas, called into their employer and said “My whole family has covid, I probably do too, and her manager told her, “well you’re vaccinated so don’t worry about it come into work anyway.”
    So they’re firing covid negative nurses who aren’t vaccinated and could be bonafide covid negative, but bringing in likely covid positive vaccinated nurses. Freedom of information act into what sha policies are for vaccinated nurses experiencing covid symptoms, should confirm this if they haven’t covered it all up.
    I’d also like to know the all cause mortality rate in Sask this year, minus covid deaths BY vaccination status.
    Getting a fatal heart attack at 25 instead of covid/cold with a greater than 99.9% survival rate, does not sound to me as a valid risk assessment. To say nothing of the long term affects, that are of yet, completely unknown.

    When I asked the daughter if she missed her mom, she said “No.” I asked why and she said, “I don’t know.” (She is 7 after all.) If I was 7 and expected one of my parents to set me up for an injection I didn’t want, I wouldn’t be eager to see them again either.

    Strange, the CBC article on Jackson’s appearance on Laura Lynn’s show said, “They exchanged unsubstantiated and disproven stories about COVID-19 vaccines for nearly 45 minutes.” Really? she showed video of parents who cried as they shared stories of their children dying shortly after the shot, followed by concerns expressed by Dr. Malone, the inventor of mRNA vaccines who has been banned from Twitter. The only other thing was a screenshot of the Sask mom who said her teenaged daughter died 5 days after getting her shot.

    The father is right to be concerned. There is mounting evidence about the potential dangers to his daughter, including fertility. See the charts in the attached article.

    One day the Daughter will thank her father for taking control of the situation.

    The VAX is junk . . . it does not work to prevent Covid as Hospitals around the world are filling with the VAXED.

    The threat to children is practically ZERO . . . whereas Vax injuries are much more common.

    Hopefully the mother “Karen” is getting all her boosters . . . lol

    It is a terrible thing when our governments so blatantly and willingly destroys lives. Blame lay solely at the feet of Moe and his tyrannical reign for this families strife.

    My only hope is that one day these leaders like Moe, Kenney, Notley, Trudeau et al will be held accountable for their actions.

    Hat’s off to this father for looking after his daughter in the face of tyranny. This will only get worse unless people stand up and say NO!

UCP MLA calls AHS ‘bloated’ and ‘underperforming’

“Even at a 90% inoculation rate in those 12 and older, we struggle with capacity,” said Guthrie criticizing AHS for the lack of available hospital beds throughout the pandemic and the many cancelled surgeries as a result.




Alberta Health Services is “failing” and needs “transformation,” says UCP MLA for Airdrie-Cochrane Peter Guthrie in a Facebook post.

Guthrie posted the video on Tuesday and said after speaking with many of his constituents, he had been “wrestling” with his thoughts on the state of Alberta’s healthcare system.

Guthrie highlighted the two-year period of the pandemic going from “zero data and no vaccine” to having data from around the world and a vaccine, “yet we seem to be in a circular loop.”

“Even at a 90% inoculation rate in those 12 and older, we struggle with capacity,” said Guthrie, criticizing AHS for the lack of available hospital beds throughout the pandemic and the many cancelled surgeries as a result.

“And AHS seems to recite the same recycled ideas including masking, passports and other various restrictions.”

In September, Guthrie said he and other MLAs questioned AHS and the Alberta government on the use of vaccine passports saying they were “divisive and possibly ineffective in stopping transmission,” and were showing waning efficacy.

“I don’t feel our health leaders adjusted to this evidence,” said Guthrie.

Guthrie also criticized AHS for not investing in researching treatments for COVID-19 symptoms and for working to “deter” the use of early treatments.

“AHS and the College of Physicians (and Surgeons of Alberta – CPSA) have penalized, suspended and even revoked licenses’ of those Alberta doctors trying to find a treatment, including anti-viral medications, that may help a patient avoid symptoms.”

Guthrie took aim at the “billions of added dollars” the government has put into healthcare for AHS to hire more doctors yet said wait times have not improved across the province. He also referenced a report by the Fraser Institute that pegged Canada as second behind Switzerland for the most expensive universal healthcare system in the world, but added Canada also sits among the bottom on performance.

“This reinforces the need for reform,” said Guthrie, adding he doesn’t blame frontline workers and suggests we should be looking to those healthcare workers for suggestions on how to improve what he calls a “failing” healthcare system.

Guthrie said pre-COVID19 — and immediately after he was elected — he and other MLAs felt upper management changes in AHS were necessary.

“We felt that AHS was a bloated, underperforming entity that requires transformation,” said Guthrie.

“With the uninspiring performance of AHS over the last two years, right or wrong, that sentiment still holds with me.”

Guthrie said he believes “high-calibre candidates” should be sought outside of AHS and said the healthcare system in Alberta should not be left to continue struggling and suggested other strategies should be explored by professional consultants from outside AHS.

“We must endeavour to generate confidence, not fear,” said Guthrie encouraging people to share their ideas and thoughts on how to improve Alberta’s healthcare system.

Omicron grounds every 1 in 5 WestJet flights in February

Customers affected by the new cutbacks will hear from WestJet within the next few days.




A total of 20% of WestJet flights will be cancelled in February — Omicron and past layoffs are to blame.

“As we continue to navigate the unpredictability of the Omicron variant on our staffing levels, along with the ongoing barriers to international travel, we are making every effort to proactively manage our schedule in order to minimize disruption to our guests’ travel plans,” said President & CEO Harry Taylor in a press release. 

“To our guests impacted by these additional consolidations, we sincerely apologize for the disruption and appreciate your continued understanding and patience.”

Customers affected by the new cutbacks will hear from WestJet within the next few days.

The aviation industry is the only transportation sector in Canada requiring full vaccination status to use and is the highest COVID-19 tested consumer activity in the country.

“Canada remains one of the only countries in the world requiring multiple molecular tests for fully-vaccinated travellers — these testing resources should be redeployed to our communities,” said Taylor, commenting on the demand to stop arrival testing.

The measures are in addition to the 15% reduction in flights implemented in January because of staff shortages.

These events follow the December deadline for WestJet employees to be vaccinated, where hundreds of employees were fired because of their vaccination status.

Misery index places Canada in bottom ranks

“Canadians are rightly concerned about the country’s high inflation and unemployment rates, and when compared to other developed countries, Canada is not doing well.”




Canada’s combination of high rates of inflation and unemployment have secured it the sixth most “miserable” advanced economy in the world.

Tuesday morning, the Fraser Institute released a study that ranked the International Monetary Fund’s top 35 economic countries.

With an inflation rate of 3.15% and unemployment rate of 7.72%, Canada’s 2021 Misery Index score is 10.88.

“Canadians are rightly concerned about the country’s high inflation and unemployment rates, and when compared to other developed countries, Canada is not doing well,” said Jason Clements, executive vice president of the Fraser Institute.

Fraser Institute

American economist Arthur Okun created the Misery Index to understand the level of economic strain felt on an everyday basis for regular citizens of a country.

Inflation and unemployment act as measures that drastically affect the costs of living that impacts economic well-being on an individual level.

Only five countries received worse scores than Canada, Spain in the last spot with a score of 17.61, followed by Greece (15.73), Italy (11.96) and Iceland (11.26)

Countries above Canada’s score include France (10.10), the United States (9.72), Australia (7.33), and the United Kingdom (7.17).

Japan (2.61) and Switzerland (3.57) received the top scores being the least miserable.

The Misery Index was prominent in policy discussions during the 1970s and 1980s, but fell out of the spotlight during the 1990s while inflation and unemployment was low.

“The fact we are again discussing the Misery Index and Canada’s high ranking on it is bad news for all Canadians, who will suffer as a result,” Clemens said.

“Governments across Canada, particularly the federal government, should prioritize those policies that will make Canadians less miserable by lowering inflation and unemployment.”
