Canadian First Responders stage silent vigil against medical tyranny

It’s not a protest against vaccines. It’s a protest against tyranny.

First responders staged a silent vigil in Toronto on Monday against a vaccine mandate that requires “all workers in the City of Toronto” to disclose if they’ve been vaccinated on Monday. A vaccine mandate for police officers also went into effect on Tuesday Sept 14, 2021.

The Toronto Star has a rather lengthy report on it all. Here’s some more video from the scenes in Toronto on Monday:

The City of Calgary also requires its government employees to get COVID vaccinated. In response, approximately 2,000 people protested vaccine mandates in Calgary on Sunday.

The COVID Craziness in Canada is rampant.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said he was “deeply disturbed by anti-vaxxer gatherings outside of hospitals and health-care sites in the last few weeks.”

Calling the protests “anti-vaxxer gatherings” shows Trudeau either doesn’t understand what they’re protesting or is purposefully misrepresenting them. And both of those possibilities are unacceptable.

First Responders Silently Protest Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination at Ontario Legislature

by James Risdon, NTD, September 13, 2021

Paramedics and healthcare workers transfer a patient from Humber River Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit to a waiting air ambulance as the hospital frees up space In their ICU unit, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on April 28, 2021.

First responders stood silently in Queen’s Park in Toronto at the provincial legislature on Sept. 13 to protest mandatory COVID-19 vaccination programs.

“First Responders for No Mandates” read one sign seen among the protesters, online videos of the event show. “Frontline for Freedom” read another.

Another sign said, “Toronto stands with Calgary,” an apparent reference to a silent protest against mandatory COVID-19 vaccination by police officers and firefighters in Calgary on Sept. 7.

Protests at Hospitals

The protest was one of many against mandatory vaccinations for public employees, including health workers, that took place across Canada on Sept. 13.

Many of the protests held at hospitals proved especially contentious as political leaders and hospital administrators expressed concern they would cause stress for medical workers and patients.

Ahead of the protest slated for the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre in Halifax on Sept. 13, Nova Scotia Health issued a statement asking protesters to allow patients and families access to care and to let staff, including physicians, free and clear access to work.

“It is disappointing and disheartening to know this may happen, given the hard work of health-care workers over the last year and a half,” stated Nova Scotia Health.

“Protesting at hospitals will further contribute to the stress and fatigue of our teams and we respectfully ask that protesters reconsider or choose a more appropriate location.”

Canadian Frontline Nurses, the organization behind the protests at the hospitals, didn’t return repeated requests for comment about the protests on Sept. 13.

On its website, the organization called for the protests to be silent and peaceful.

“This will be a silent vigil to honour those affected by measures put in place over the last year and half.  Our cries and concerns have been ignored for too long,” the group said.

“Please join us in creating a memorial tribute, by bringing flowers, pictures, cards, letters to share stories in honour of those affected. Share your loss and grieving, to bring out the truth on what is happening across Canada and why we are taking a stand to tyrannical measures and government overreach.”

Sean Taylor, an emergency room nurse who has taken part in such protests in the past, defended the decision of health workers to hold the protests by hospitals as he said that’s their place of employment. Taylor is also the People’s Party of Canada candidate for the riding of South Okanagan-West Kootenay.

“When Telus goes on strike, you don’t picket in the park. You picket at the Telus offices,” he said.

The protests appear to be open not only to health workers but also to the general public.

Dr. Michael Warner, an intensive care physician at the Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto, explained his concerns about the protests at hospitals in a video on Twitter.

“People are entitled to protest and make their voices heard. At the same time, hospitals are not the place to do it,” he said.

“Hospitals are sacred places of healing. It’s where people go for safety, for protection, for treatment, for love, for peace and, sometimes, for death. They’re not the place to be yelling and screaming and intimidating.”

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity ... the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance. This immaturity is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one's own mind without another's guidance. Dare to know! (Sapere aude.) "Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the [European] Enlightenment. "Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet [or vaccine], and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind ... should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts. "Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas [e.g., Leftist ideology, identity politics] these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use--or rather abuse--of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting immaturity. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from immaturity by cultivating their own minds." - Kant, "An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment"
