RCMP Officers Shun "Forced Coercive" Vaccine Mandates
A group of RCMP officers in Canada have written an open letter to Commissioner Brenda Lucki opposing vaccine mandates. The letter outlines the reasons why they do not support what they call “ forced coercive medical intervention.”
The group named Mounties for Freedom explain that vaccination mandates go against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the Bill of Rights. They express major concern for the disregard of these founding legal documents that the country’s democracy was built on.
"Requiring mandatory COVID-19 treatment options is a slippery slope and allows the government to overstep its authority unchecked. It infringes on the fundamental belief in our society that the individual has the right and freedom to choose."
One of the more unique parts of the letter discusses how RCMP officers are educated in spotting signs of domestic abuse. Through this education, they are suggesting that what is taking place right now, via government, parallels how an abuser treats their victims.
Being an RCMP officer already means exposure to a high risk job and higher levels of stress. With members being fired due to mandates, this will not only lead to higher stress levels for those without a job but also for those left overwhelmed and overworked picking up the slack.
The letter also questions the “scientific truths" the government is basing their decisions on, stating that throughout the pandemic there have been contradicting "scientific facts," that have changed within weeks. Not to mention evidence throughout history that shows science is always changing.
There was a time when scientists believed humans were divided into racial hierarchies and that a person’s intelligence level and characteristics were determined by race15. These beliefs were not heavily contested and were widely accepted as scientific fact16. Phrenology was also widely accepted as being a legitimate scientific study.
The group is questioning the certainty around COVID “scientific facts” and attaches links to other open letters, studies, and concerns written by experts.
Another topic covered in the letter is discrimination and how what is taking place is a clear path to dehumanizing a specific group of people.
Mounties for Freedom says they are a diverse group of Mounties from different cultural backgrounds, religious beliefs, and vaccination status', however it is unclear how many people are connected to the letter.
As of when this article was published there were over 40,000 signatures in support of this open letter. To sign, scroll to the bottom of the letter.
There has yet to be a response from Commissioner Brenda Lucki.
