According to a statement recently released by the Board of Internal Economy, the Canadian federal government will not provide access to duly-elected Members of Parliament and their staff who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 within the House of Commons Precinct by November 22.
Designated to regulate House rules, the Board of Internal Economy stressed that this requirement will also cover “consultants, contractors, parliamentary business visitors, members of the Parliamentary Press Gallery, Administration employees, and political research office employees.” The current board is composed of 9 members of parliament and headed by Liberal MP Anthony Rota.
While the Board of Internal Economy strictly enjoins the observance of the COVID-19 vaccination policy, it pointed out in its statement that it will consider valid medical exemptions. Therefore, individuals who have a valid medical exemption to the shots and present “proof of a recent negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test result” will still be admitted inside the House of Commons.
Remarkably, this is not the first time the Trudeau-led administration forced the COVID-19 jabs on Canadian citizens. In October, the Prime Minister ordered all federal workers to comply with the vaccination policy, including those connected with federally regulated industries like marine transportation and airlines.
This order was met by many opposition and criticism from labour unions across Canada, particularly from the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), which represents more than 215,000 workers, and the one representing the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canada’s national police force.
However, Trudeau and his national health policymakers are still pushing for the administration of the experimental shots—even though there have been reports that they contain questionable components such as tissue derived from aborted human fetuses and can cause severe adverse health issues.
These health issues include heart attacks in young, healthy men, including miscarriages, rashes, and unexpected blood clots.
Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) MP Blake Richards commented on the seemingly shady vaccination mandate directed by the Board of Internal Economy. “As we said during the election, workplace health and safety can be assured through vaccination or the demonstration of a recent negative rapid test result,” he related.
“While we encourage everyone who can be vaccinated to get vaccinated, we cannot agree to seven MPs, meeting in secret, deciding which of the 338 MPs, just elected by Canadians, can enter the House of Commons to represent their constituents,” Richards emphasized.
