After a recent conversation with family in the U.K., I decided to write an account of what life has been like in Canada since medical apartheid was introduced here in September, as it’s often easy for those being subjected to such measures to start to view them as ‘normal’.
My family were shocked at the level of restrictions being imposed on unvaccinated Canadians, and the ease with which a segregated society was being implemented. Britain might be a petri dish of Islamic terror and knife crime, but there is an oppositional defiance woven into the national character that makes the sort of measures currently being rolled out in Canada difficult to achieve.
It cannot be said strongly enough, that none of the measures currently being imposed would last for long without the silent compliance of the majority of the population. Most people are dangerously trusting of government. They readily trade freedoms for security, and the more threatened they are made to feel, the more freedom they appear willing to surrender.
We live in Vancouver – one of those cities that is always making the top five places to live list, whilst suffering the same sort of issues that plague places like San Francisco – unaffordable housing; rampant homelessness; drug abuse and deaths. Or, as a friend puts it: Vancouver is like a supermodel that won’t stop crying; she is so blissfully self absorbed and ignorant, that even the current public health apartheid exists somewhere in the ether secondary to her Instagram profile.
Nothing I am going to describe has been passed as law – parliament has not voted on any of these measures, and none of them are enforceable without the ongoing State of Emergency, which has existed for almost two years.
At the end of June the provincial mask orders were removed, and in the absence of public health order keeping them in place, mask policies became an issue for individual businesses.
As an ‘essential worker’ for a local municipality, I was in every day of the pandemic ensuring that the buildings were functioning and services were maintained; unlike my managers, who worked mostly from home.
In early August after returning from a vacation, I wrote to my employer seeking clarification as to whether the mask mandate they had decided to continue with was ‘recommended’ or ‘mandatory’. They replied that it was ‘required’. I asked to see the legal basis for that and was pointed to the Prevention of Communicable Disease policy, which only stated that masks were ‘recommended.’
I was told by my workplace Covid Tzar that failure to wear a mask in common areas would leave me open to disciplinary action.
I decided to stop wearing the mask in common areas, and this period of liberation lasted just over a week until someone reported me to my manager. I refused to wear a mask on the basis that it was not mandated by a PHO and sent the following letter in defiance.
First thing Monday morning I continued to refuse to wear the mask and was hauled in front of my section manger for a verbal warning. By 3.30pm that afternoon it had escalated to a written warning in the presence of HR & union representation. The union were absolutely useless btw, but I will come back to comprehensive union failure to defend members later. I was handed a letter of expectation, and informed that I was expected to attend work the next day wearing a mask. I was then asked, ‘Are you intending to comply with this expectation?’ and whether I had any questions.
I only had one question: how much notice they required for retirement?
24 hrs later I handed in my retirement notice commencing Sept 1st 2021.
Vaccine Passports: ‘Wanna go to a bar? Just get the vax dude.’
Since the 13th September 2021 the Unvaccinated have been excluded from general society via proof of vaccination status which must be presented to enter restaurants, bars, clubs; community centers; leisure facilities and all gatherings over 50 people. This has also been extended to unvaccinated children over the age of twelve
It is this last detail I find both egregious and unforgivable; if the government wants to punish adults for decisions that they have made regarding attempts to coerce them into receiving an experimental medical treatment – and it is a punishment let’s be clear, as both BC’s Public Health Officer, Dr Bonnie Henry and Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau have admitted as much – then we can weather that, despite it’s clearly immoral and illegal implications, but to target children for such punishment is unforgivable.
Despite medical studies documenting adverse effects like Myocarditis in teenage boys, the government’s rationale is that children over the age of 12 can be safely vaccinated and if they are not, they too need to be isolated and forcefully persuaded.
How did Canadians become O.K. with this? How can a child, or a parent, agree to a ‘vaccine’ knowing the potential significant side effects, and that vaccine makers are immune from liability?
It’s truly worrying where this is heading, and what is expected of us. We have two children (boys) aged 15 and 11. Neither of which are vaccinated, and given everything we have read, and they will remain that way.
I used to joke that your average Canadian is only ever two CBC Op-Ed’s away from throwing other people’s kids into ovens in the name of decency. Now I am starting to fear that observation.
Isolation & Discrimination
You hear a lot about both of these topics if you spend anytime consuming CBC news, but NEVER in relation to what the Unvaccinated are currently being subjecting to. This perversely selective social justice serves only to render CBC’s professional credibility contemptible; on par with North Korean state media; selective virtue being what it is – no virtue at all.
Over recent weeks my a small circle of unvaccinated friends are becoming closer – checking in with other; keeping in touch; organizing things together. At the same time, it is palpable that the vaccinated world is silently turning its back on us. And although subtle, the latter is happened so comprehensively and in such a short period of time, it is disconcerting.
Isolation is incredibly damaging on mental health, and some members of my family are struggling at times with the ongoing lockdowns and war on the Unvaccinated. To say that I am angry at what the federal & provincial governments have, and are doing to my family, is an understatement. They have declared war on us and are creating a divided society; one that is going to be much less cohesive and more dysfunctional. You have to conclude that they know this, and at this stage you have to wonder what instructions they have been given, together with their level of understanding in regards to the big picture.
In mid October my wife was due to start a contract working on a Christmas show. She has worked seasonally for this company for eight years. The day before her contract was due to start she was informed that she needed to be vaccinated, and fully vaccinated by the 24th October.
She told them it was not her intention to be vaccinated, and her contract was cancelled the next day. What really bothered her, despite the loss of income, was the impersonal manner in which this was conducted. These were friends of hers; there was no attempt made to clarify why she wasn’t going to be vaccinated before her contract was cancelled. Often such action by the employer can be attributed to the position many employers have been put in by the Provincial government, but this was an independent policy created by the company chasing an ideological position, and once again her union was utterly useless to the point of silent complicity. You have to ask what is the point of paying union dues given their comprehensive failure to protect workers under threat of coercive vaccine policies?
My early retirement at the beginning of September was a choice; after 18 months as an essential worker attending my place of work every day of the ‘pandemic’, I wanted to make a stand against my employer’s draconian interpretation of PHO advice.
A few weeks later my act of defiance became something of a moot point, when on 6th October – the same day that Trudeau announced a vaccine mandate for federal workers – my now ex-employer announced that they too were requiring that all workers be fully vaccinated by 22nd November. As an unvaccinated worker, Friday 19th November would be my last day of employment, after which, they would send me home on unpaid leave indefinitely. They cannot fire workers who refuse to be vaccinated, because they haven’t done anything wrong, instead they are sending them home without pay to avoid legal liability for wrongful dismissal. It is both cowardly and deceitful, and we hope that one day those responsible will be brought to justice via the thousands of Notices of Liability that are currently being served across Canada by affected employees and activists working with Action4Canada.
So we are now a family with both parents victims of workplace Covid policies. We are getting work where we can find it and have embarked upon the only avenue remaining open to us – self-employment.
I am confident that we’ll be O.K. scratching out an existence on the fringes of society. However, we also fully appreciate that those behind these restrictions are not done with their discrimination and punitive policies. We fear the unknown of what comes next, and especially fear for our children knowing that they are the next target for these psychopaths.
Everything is on the table for us, and one option is to leave the country before things get any worse, but that door is also closing fast. On the same day Trudeau announced his federal worker vaccine mandates, he also announced that starting on 30th October, unvaccinated Canadians can no longer travel on trains; planes or cruise ships. That means that if you are a foreign national residing in Canada after that date, you will need to be vaccinated to leave, or you will be trapped in country.
This is now full blown pharma-fascism. Our leaders have become deranged tyrants and the majority of Canadians are just going along with it, hoping that the concessions being made will eventually earn them their old life back. I consider this position to be grossly naïve and believe that we are subject to a coup by the elites, or Great Reset, with a public health crisis acting as the rationale to justify it.
Like many other people we know, we are hurriedly renewing our British passports just in case the situation gets ugly and we are suddenly looking at internment camps or forced vaccination. And whilst we realize that this is a global operation, and Britain is by no means immune from the current momentum, the situation there is much less controllable for the authorities.
We seriously worry about where things are heading in this country, and hope that Canada is not about to enter territory hitherto synonymous with worst collectivist experiments of the 20th Century. The people in charge are capable of such horror, and the population clearly naïve and ignorant enough of historical precedent to go along with it… all in the name of safety and decency.
