Before I begin this week’s report, I would like to confirm that my long-standing policy of not commenting on the personal decisions of other Members of Parliament remains.
Thus I will not be commenting on Prime Minister Trudeau’s vacation trip to Tofino on the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation last week.
Instead, I will pass on the Prime Minister’s comments:
“Travelling on September 30th was a mistake and I regret it” as the PM apologized for his actions in this matter.
Another announcement from Ottawa this week are further details and clarification on the Federal Government’s mandatory vaccination plan for domestic air, sea and train travel.
Starting on October 30th, 2021, all travelers will be required to be fully vaccinated before boarding planes, trains or marine vessels that are federally regulated.
At this point in time, I am told this will not apply to BC Ferries.
Also all members of the federal public service, including organizations such as the RCMP, CBSA, Canada Post and others, will be expected to have similar mandatory vaccination policies in place.
The Prime Minister has indicated that criteria will be announced regarding exemptions for medical or religious reasons by the end of October.
At the time of my writing this report, both the House of Commons and Senate will be required to implement their own mandatory vaccination policies, although MPs and Senators will not be exempt from the travel restrictions without a valid exemption.
In the interests of full disclosure, I am fully vaccinated and encourage others to be fully vaccinated if they are not already.
My question this week:
Do you support these mandatory vaccination policies?

What happened to the charter of rights? Imposing upon Canadians mandatory vaccinations for a vaccine that we don't know the long term side effects for is criminal. What about people who had the first shot and had adverse reactions? Why are there no exemptions for them? I am completely loosing faith in my government and Canada is no longer a free country in my eyes.

I DO NOT support mandatory vaccines! This is a complete violation of our human rights, the charter of rights and the Nuremburg treaty of 1947!

Our immune systems are equipped to handle most pathogens coming our way, so the key is to eat and have heathy lifestyles. Why would anyone want a vax if the long term effects are unknown, and will require booster a on a regular basis. Some of my friends have had the vaccine, and are suffering side effects such as fatigue, rashes, and other skin issues since their jab.
