  • Canadian stuff

    I'm starting this thread to post some things that are going on here that most of you aren't aware of. You know about the Freedom Convoy and the feds behaviour regarding that.

    And then you have the SpendDP-Liberal coalition that will keep Trudeau in power until 2025, which has deprived the Conservatives from having a snowball's chance in heck of winning any sort of vote against whatever garbage the others bring up.

    And along with that little fun bit, is the new trick of limiting debate on whatever bill they have introduced. For example, the debate on the noxious Bill C-11, which will censor free speech online, was shut down by the feds after 2 hours. 2 hours! Absolutely outrageous! As is everything done by this government.

    This is new today, from the JCCF. Good on them, hold the fed feet to the fire!

    Government denial of EI benefits to employees fired for failure to get the Covid shot

    The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (“Justice Centre”) is a Canadian legal organization and federally registered charity that defends citizen’s fundamental freedoms under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms through pro bono (free) legal representation and through educating Canadians about a free society. The Justice Centre has been doing this since 2010.

    The Government of Canada is disallowing employment insurance (“EI”) benefits to persons who have been fired or suspended from their employment for not getting the Covid vaccines (the “Policy”). Service Canada and the Canada Employment Insurance Commission (the “Commission”) are insisting that unvaccinated employees have been suspended due to their own “misconduct” and consequently have denied them benefits under s. 31 of the Employment Insurance Act.

    This Policy of Service Canada and the Commission is not in accordance with the jurisprudence, including from the Supreme Court of Canada. The bar for proving misconduct is a high one. In cases where misconduct is found, the employee’s misconduct was frequent, or they were conducting illegal activities on the work premises even though they had received several warnings. The conduct must be so serious as to constitute a breach of the employment agreement.

    Not every incident of misconduct constitutes “cause” for dismissal (Metropolitan Hotel and H.E.R.E., Loc 75 (Bellan)(Re) 2002 Canlii 78919 (ONCA)). The employee must be “guilty of serious misconduct, habitual neglect of duty, incompetence or conduct incompatible with his duties” (R v Arthurs, Ex Parte Port Arthur Shipbuilding Co. [1967] 2 O.R. 49-73). A simple refusal to get a Covid vaccine is not illegal activity and does not suffice as willful misconduct, particularly when an employer has not offered to accommodate an employee who refuses to disclose their status or to get vaccinated.

    Employers are required to accommodate the medical conditions or sincerely-held religious beliefs of employees that prevent them from receiving Covid vaccines. Further, section 7 of the Charter requires government to respect employees’ rights to bodily autonomy, including the right to receive—or not receive—particular medical interventions, such as Covid-19 vaccines.

    Section 7 of the Charter states that: “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security or the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.” There are many decisions in superior courts affirming this right. In Fleming v Reid, 1991 CarswellOnt 1501 (at para 41), the court stated: “the right is so entrenched in the traditions of our law as to be ranked as fundamental and deserving of the highest protection.”

    The Supreme Court of Canada stated in AC v Manitoba (Director of child and Family Services), 2009 SCC 30 cited the Morgentaler case, stating “[Liberty], properly construed, grants the individual a degree of autonomy in making decisions of fundamental personal importance”. And further citing Blencoe v. British Columbia (Human Rights Commission), 2000 SCC 44 that: “liberty is engaged where state compulsions or prohibitions affect important and fundamental life choices”.

    The Government’s current Policy to deny EI benefits to those who lost their jobs for not getting the Covid vaccines is not in line with the caselaw in this area. Rather, it is arbitrary and being used to advance a political agenda.

    The purpose of the Employment Insurance Act is to enable someone who involuntarily loses their employment to receive benefits which the employee pays for, in part. The Policy position taken by Service Canada and the Commission in labelling a simple refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccination as “misconduct” is “…inconsistent with the objective of the enabling statute or the scope of the statutory mandate.” Hudson’s Bay Company ULC v. Ontario (Attorney General) (Div. Ct., 2020) at p. 37.

    By acting without a basis in law, Service Canada and the Commission have no legal jurisdiction for denying EI benefits to Canadians who did not receive the Covid vaccines. These decisions made are therefore null and void.

        Sorry about your goofball. We have an extreme excess of goofballs down here.

        Anyone still whining about COVID should be marked out as a "true believer" of fear.

        The CDC just recommended masking while travel because of....monkeypox....the next disease for you to fear. Has Justine gone monkey yet?

          A YouTuber I watch named J.J. McCullough went to the Canadian parliament to try and argue against it, but it looks like he was the only small content creator that went there to stand up against C-11. Every other witness there was from some major media outlet.

          Here is the video if anyone is interested.



          Is it just me, or does he look way older in that thumbnail than he normally does?

              Not yet. He’s still in full Covid mode. Claims it’s still a pandemic all the while screaming "we trust the science".

              I'm sure the monkey pox fearmongering will be along soon. Even though I’ve heard several report (not in the msm, of course) that it’s nothing like Covid and we should not panic.

                I’m surprised they let him anywhere near the place. Trudeau is fond of banning any and all conservative independent media from speaking or even attending anything he does. If you aren’t one of his paid media goons, get out.

                      I think they let him in just to use some of his past statements against him to discredit him. More specifically his opinions on the French language, and bilingualism.

                        Yeah, that sounds about right.

                          Gas shot up 12 cents a litre overnight. Now 1.90/litre.

                          $8.36/Imperial gallon.

                          $7.60/US gallon.

                          How many cents did yours go up per gallon overnight? If it's not 53.4 cents each, quit yer whinging.

                            This week it went from 4.19/gal to 4.49/gal.
                            The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                              That's plenty, for sure.
