Canadian Health Minister Urges Provinces To Consider Mandatory Vaccines For All
Canadian Federal Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos stated Friday that some Canadian provinces might look to implement COVID-19 vaccine mandates. He stated his belief saying it is a conversation that has to happen, and will most likely happen in the future as unvaccinated patients continue to put a strain on hospitals. It's being considered, but it's not policy and if it does become policy it probably won't be for some time. No doubt there will be a lot of resistance.
This comes with the recent announcement from Quebec, Canada, that a third does will become mandatory for all citizens who wish to keep their vaccine passports up to date, Health Minister Christian Dubé announced during a news conference Thursday.
But Duclos failed to mention that hospitals have long been strained and over-capacity. Most hospitals are barely equipped to handle a severe flu season, and it's not solely the unvaccinated putting a strain on hospitals.
The issue doesn't seem to be COVID and vaccination rates, but rather an inadequate healthcare system along with poor health. According to CDC statistics, for example, 95 percent of people who have died with or from COVID have an average of four other causes (comorbidities) listed on their death certificate. Furthermore, it's not entirely clear how many people are ending up in hospitals with COVID, or because of COVID.
The province of Alberta has already stated that they will not be revisiting the idea of vaccine passports or any type of mandatory vaccination measures. But throughout this pandemic politicians have made many broken promises.
We now know that vaccines don't stop the transmission of the virus and COVID-19 variants. You are not protecting another person by getting vaccinated. There is a lot of data that's been accumulated showing this throughout the pandemic with highly vaccinated populations experiencing exponential outbreaks, and it's become even more obvious with the Omicron variant.
It can be argued that COVID vaccines do protect individuals from severe symptoms and hospitalization, but given the fact that healthy people under the age of 70 have a near 100 percent chance of survival, how much more protection can it really provide? Perhaps a more focused protection approach like The Great Barrington Declaration advocated for would have been more appropriate. This way we could have avoided the catastrophic impacts of lockdown, which have failed to stop the spread, just like the vaccines, and have killed more people than COVID.
Furthermore, the record amount of vaccine injuries across the globe have been staggering. Approximately 50 percent of serious vaccine injuries reported to The US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the last 30 years are from COVID shots, and we know that a vast majority of vaccine injuries, perhaps over 90 percent, are underreported.
By October 15th, 2021, adverse events reported worldwide passed 2,344,240 for COVID vaccines alone in the World Health Organization (WHO) reporting system VigiAccess. Multiple countries have begun the process of compensation claims for several thousand COVID vaccine injuries, and previously confidential pfizer documents show that there were documented concerns within the first 90 days of their vaccine rollout, with serious vaccine injuries reported.
For these reasons, and many more, mandatory vaccination policies don't makes sense, and a freedom of choice approach, like what has been used in Japan, is an appropriate action that is truly "trusting the science." Japan is even encouraging citizens not to discriminate against the unvaccinated.
These points, however, remain unacknowledged as more countries move towards mandatory vaccination for all citizens. Austria is implementing a mandatory vaccine measure. Citizens who don't comply will face thousands of dollars worth of fines each month and/or jail time.
Germany is contemplating the same. Italy and Greece have mandated the vaccine for a certain portion of the elderly population under the penalty of fines. In Indonesia, all adults will face fines or refusal of social assistance or government services for not being vaccinated. Micronesia, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan have also implemented mandatory vaccination requirements for the citizenry.
So, it's not far fetched that this is coming to Canada, as the Health Minister claims. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently said on a Quebec television station that people who do not get vaccinated against COVID-19 are often racist and misogynistic extremists.
The unscientific demonization of the unvaccinated continues, and if Canadians and citizens around the world continue to comply and agree, who knows where and what this slippery slope will lead to.
As with the recent move from Quebec, most other provinces are most likely to follow with a third dose requirement to be able to use their vaccine passports. We will see what happens.
