The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, 1982, Section 1 – The rights and freedoms in the Charter are not absolute. They can be limited to protect other rights or important values. For example, freedom of expression may be limited by laws against hate propaganda or child pornography because they prevent harm to the individual or to community-held values, Section 1, pg. 2.
Section 2 of the Charter deals with Freedom of Assembly. This freedom also is not absolute. If harm can be proven, limits on freedom can be justified. There are several streams of evidence that prove lack of vaccination cause sickness and death: to those not vaccinated; to the vaccinated but infected with a variant and underlying serious health conditions and; because the hospitalized have long 23-day stays in hospital. They keep others living in serious pain that surgery could treat.
So what is the crime the unvaccinated are guilty of? Is it felony manslaughter or only the misdemeanour of criminal negligence causing death? Dozens of those pushing fentanyl when a death results are being charged with manslaughter with varying results, including guilty.
When an Alberta congregation refused social distancing, they didn’t lock up the congregation, only the pastor. When Albertans refused to get vaccinated, guess who should get locked up? Someone who refuses to legislate vaccination.
