Conservative Leadership Candidate Derek Sloan Opposes Compulsory Masks & Other COVID Tyrannies

Posted on by

Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said this week that the coronavirus pandemic may continue for years, as will measures taken to combat it, like mandatory masking and physical distancing, even if researchers manage to discover a vaccine.

This latest “news” is just the latest installment in the bizarre world of ever-shifting goalposts being laid down by many of our public health officials, most notably in Canada by Dr. Theresa Tam.

Hearing that we may be forced to take measures against COVID-19 for “years” to come is quite different from what we heard when the lockdown began. Back then, we only needed a few weeks, maybe a month, to “flatten the curve” and ensure there was enough space in hospitals.

But that’s been the story of this pandemic. We’ve received confusing and contradictory advice throughout. Dr. Tam spent months telling us we should not wear masks because it might actually increase the spread, until she reversed her position on them at the same time as the World Health Organization did. Now they’re mandatory.

We were told limiting international air travel and closing the border to non-essential traffic wouldn’t work right up until the day that they closed the borders.

We were told our government was prepared for the pandemic, when now we know it wasn’t.

If Dr. Tam wanted us to take her predictions about the future of this pandemic seriously, she shouldn’t have spent months passing off WHO directives that were made at the behest of the Communist Party of China as medical advice that would help Canadians.

I realized months ago that Dr. Theresa Tam was not serving the interests of Canadians’ health, and I called for her to be fired. I stand by this position.

We must remain vigilant against government overreach that uses this public health crisis as a cover to “temporarily” remove liberties that will never be restored.

We must guard against edicts imposed in the name of public safety that are really designed for compliance and control.

We must demand that our government recognize that measures taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 have psychological, physical, and economic consequences that are as real and dangerous as any virus.

I remain 100% against mandating masks in Canada.

I also remain 100% against a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine, should one be developed. If Canadians volunteer for a vaccine, that should be up to them. It’s called “vaccine choice”, but “no mandatory vaccines” must be the first principle.

And I remain 100% confident that Canadians can overcome the threat of COVID-19 without surrendering any of the foundational liberties that make Canada the best country in the world!
