In Vancouver, thousands of people gathered at the Vancouver Art Gallery to protest British Columbia’s latest restrictions, including the province’s recent vaccine passport regulations.This gathering is one of several gatherings across Canada and one of an estimated 180 gatherings around the world
The Toronto protests also attracted a large crowd and were delivered by various speakers, including MPP Rick Nicholls, who was kicked out of the PC core group by Governor Doug Ford for refusing to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. According to reports, the event in Calgary attracted approximately 1,000 people and the leader of the Canadian People’s Party, Maxime Bernier, attended the event.
The Vancouver event was organized by freely organized Alicia Johnson and Danielle Pistilli.
Johnson said: “We oppose medical tyranny, we oppose discrimination and segregation… and this government uses the media to incite speech against the people. This is our confrontation with them.” “We are now observing in real time, and our own federal government incites the same. The mechanism allows people to oppose each other.”
Vern Penner, a Metro Vancouver resident who participated in the protest, has been designing creative signs and clothing to protest the government’s measures against COVID-19. He summed up his attendance with a challenge to fellow Canadians: “My question to every Canadian is: Is Canada worth fighting for?” he asked. “If so, why don’t we?”
The retired Deputy Sheriff Bert Mayo, who works for the British Columbia Sheriff’s Department, delivered a speech on behalf of Police On Guard For Thee, an organization created by active and retired police officers in 2020, who believe that they uphold the Canadian Constitution when required by the government The oath was threatened by the police to enforce certain COVID-19 restrictions.
“As a law enforcement agency, we swear to uphold the Charter rights and freedoms of all Canadians,” Mayo said. “So the emergency measures we see conflict when we are asked to implement them, but since we pledged to uphold people’s charter rights, we say no to that.”
Organizer Pistilli said that when organizing the protest, they also included the resources they took home as part of the message, so that people could understand Mayo’s rights as abused. She also said that her free organization conducted its own opinion survey, which showed the public’s need for information.
“The opinion polls we have done are completely opposite to those done by the mainstream media,” Pistilli said.
“With these vaccine passports, many of us have been screaming for it for a year and they disagree. They disagree to quarantine. Therefore, we want people to be able to educate people in some corner of the world. Because if all of us Without making individual differences, we will not go anywhere.”
Current passport regulations in British Columbia prohibit unvaccinated people from going to restaurants, gyms, sporting events, and other venues related to entertainment and celebrations. The province’s health officials have also reintroduced the mandatory wearing of masks in public buildings and reinvented the COVID-19 vaccination system for certain people, such as health care workers and students living in university dormitories.
Last week, Alberta and Saskatchewan announced their own versions of vaccine passports, and Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland will also implement their passports in the coming weeks. Quebec and Manitoba, like British Columbia, have developed vaccine passports.
