Fight Vaccine Passports Legal Cases
Check out this page for details on our "Fight Vaccine Passports" legal cases.
On August 23, 2021, the British Columbia Government announced that it would mandate proof of vaccination for individuals to participate in public life in the province starting September 13, 2021.
Before the mandate was officially implemented our team of lawyers sent a letter to the government stating that they have failed to publish any authority for this announcement.
It has been widely reported that the requirement to be vaccinated will be mandatory and no accommodation shall be made for individual Human Rights or Charter considerations.
That's why we, in partnership with The Democracy fund, called on the British Columbia Government to:
"Immediately correct the misreporting that has occurred on this issue, assuring all members of the public that the Government of BC will respect its Charter obligations and long-established Human Rights of its citizens, and specifically will respect valid medical, religious, and other exemptions."

Leigh Anne Eliason currently lives in the Town of Maple Ridge in the Province of British Columbia with her husband and two children.
Leigh has a complicated medical history including a neuro-vestibular disorder, atrial fibrillation, and Wenckebach Syndrome.
Around the end of April 2021, Leigh became eligible to receive her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Given her medical history, Leigh took steps to meet with her family physicians to determine whether the vaccine was safe for her.
In May of 2021, Leigh visited her doctor who advised her that given her medical conditions, the risk of receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and the potential side effects were significant and she was advised not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
On Monday, August 23, 2021, British Columbia's Premier John Horgan, the Provincial Health Officer, and Adrian Dix, BC's Minister of Health announced that starting September 13, 2021 proof of vaccination will be required in BC for all people attending certain business, social, recreational settings, and events.
In the vaccine announcement, Premier Horgan stated that “There is no reason why those who are anxious to participate in the social and economic life of our community can’t take that next step
and get that safe effective vaccine.”
Such a statement fails to consider the many members of the public, like Leigh, whose health and physical disabilities preclude them from receiving two injections of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Vaccine Card Orders unjustifiably infringe upon fundamental freedoms and rights protected by the Charter and to that extent should be of no force and effect.
Our team of lawyers has issued a petition for an injunction to the BC Supreme Court.

Alberta Health Services is attempting to force an IT employee, who works from home, to get a COVID vaccine.
A while back, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney told Rebel News reporter Adam Soos that his government is not just against vaccine passports, but that the premier would actively oppose them.
So why is an Alberta government agency, Alberta Health Services, mandating COVID vaccines for employees and contractors?
Why does our anonymous plaintiff need a jab to keep their job?
It's outrageous that anyone should be forced to take experimental medicine just to be able to earn a living and pay the bills, but it's more insane to find out that even people who work from home have to submit to private medical procedures too, just because they get a paycheque from the government.
That's why we are helping this AHS IT professional fight their vaccine passport.
Rebel News has put them in contact with a top-notch lawyer, Chad Williamson from Williamson Law, to fight this attempt at a coerced inoculation in court.

If you are an Air Canada employee interested in fighting back against vaccine mandates, click here.
Our anonymous plaintiff is an Air Canada employee and a union member of CUPE.
Air Canada recently announced a policy requiring the mandatory vaccination of all CUPE members.
The announcement was publicized in email and a press release.
The measures were described as follows:
"The decision to require all employees of Air Canada mainline, Air Canada Rouge and Air Canada Vacations to be fully vaccinated and report their vaccination status. Under the mandatory vaccination policy, testing will not be offered as an alternative. Failure to be fully vaccinated by October 30, 2021, will have consequences up to and including unpaid leave or termination."
This policy was not circulated among Air Canada employees, and flight attendants were not consulted about the impact this policy may have on their health, safety, privacy, and employment rights.
It's a union's job to advocate for its members to ensure that there is no unjustified intrusion on their rights. CUPE has arbitrarily refused to consult with, and advocate for its members, and has been completely absent in this matter.
Many CUPE members now face discipline up to termination if they do not comply with the Air Canada Press Release Policy.
Many have legitimate reasons why they cannot comply, including our plaintiff, who has recovered from COVID-19 and has medical confirmation which indicates that her natural immunity is a sufficient proxy for vaccination.
Others have medical conditions where they might not be able to be vaccinated or might not want to compromise pre-existing, complicated medical conditions with the mandatory vaccination policy.
Others may have legitimate religious or conscience views on the topic.
Finally, others might have legitimate concerns about an employer collecting such personal and sensitive health information without reasonable justifications.
The Air Canada Press Release Policy unreasonably intrudes on these CUPE members’ rights. Leaving CUPE members left to wonder if CUPE has prioritized its leadership's political views over its obligation to its members.
That's why we, in partnership with The Democracy fund, have taken on our plaintiff's case. We have hired a team of lawyers to fight vaccine mandates in court.

There are more than 1000 hockey parents across Ontario whose children play in Ontario Hockey Federation Member organizations.
Stephen Penney is one of them.
Stephen, along with many other parents are extremely concerned about the failure of the Member associations to properly implement the vaccination policy contained in OHF's Return to Hockey Framework which was released August 27, 2021.
These Member leagues are ignoring the Policy’s ‘recommended but optional’ approach to vaccines and are substituting coercive and heavy-handed policies which will result in the removal of potentially thousands of minor hockey players from their leagues this season upon refusal to comply.
OHF’s vaccination position, contained in the Policy, states the following:
"Looking ahead to the upcoming season, the OHF requests that all eligible players, coaches, officials, volunteers, staff, families and fans consider getting vaccinated, guided by information from health officials including Health Canada and Public Health Ontario"
Member organizations are going against this policy.
A vaccination policy should be recommended, not mandated.
The provincial government doesn't even require that minor athletes be vaccinated in order to participate in sport, nor do the regional Medical Officers of Health.
OHF’s position is also in keeping with the policy of Hockey Canada.
That's why our team of lawyers issued a letter to the executive director of the Ontario Hockey Federation.
Vaccine mandates on minors are both unscientific and unethical.
There is absolutely no “undue hardship” for the association to accommodate players who do not wish to be vaccinated for any reason whatsoever.

On September 3, the province of Manitoba made it mandatory for people to show proof of vaccination to enter a range of businesses including restaurants, movie theatres, bingo halls, and gyms.
Monstrosity Burger boldly decided not to discriminate on who can and cannot dine at their establishment based on their COVID-19 vaccination status.
Shortly after Manitoba's vaccine announcement, Dave and Paulina received two tickets for non-compliance at $5,000 each.
Within a week, they received 10 more tickets, all at $5,000 apiece, leaving them with $60,000 worth of fines.
Manitoba law enforcement has now also issued them a closure order for all dine-in services, leaving their only options for service as takeout and delivery.
We are going to do everything in our power to fight back against these unjust fines. That's why we've hired a strong legal team to fight back against these measures.

Naomi Smart was employed by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNRL), an oil and gas company that operates various resource extraction sites throughout Alberta and British Columbia.
On September 23, 2021, CNRL implemented a COVID-19 vaccination policy that required all employees to provide proof of vaccination by December 1, 2021.
After September 23, hundreds of CNRL employees and contractors joined an online group started by Naomi and her colleagues to discuss CNRL's vaccine mandate.
On October 12, 2021, the group decided to seek legal counsel. Their lawyer issued a letter to the CNRL notifying them that over 1,100 of its employees and contractors disapproved of their vaccine mandate, did not intend to comply with the mandate, and would take legal action if they were disciplined for refusing to comply.
CNRL did not respond to the letter.
After the letter was issued to CNRL, it was publicized by the media.
The letter was not leaked to the media by Naomi, and she was never publicly identified as one of the 1,100 CNRL employees and contractors referred to in the letter.
On October 26, 2021, Naomi was terminated without cause.
At no time before her termination did she receive any warning from CNRL regarding the legal letter, or her involvement in organizing the group of CNRL employees and contractors.
Naomi was blindsided by the sudden termination and is emotionally devastated.
Knowledge of her termination has spread throughout the oilsands industry, and despite being fully qualified, she has not received any offers of employment in response to her job applications.
Naomi did absolutely nothing wrong.
That is why we, in Partnership with The Democracy Fund, have taken on her legal case to fight back against her wrongful termination.
Our team of lawyers has issued a petition for a statement of claim to the CNRL demanding they remedy Naomi's situation immediately.

Legal action has been taken and a cease and desist letter, putting the Salvation Army Canada on notice for their discriminatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, has been sent.
The policy, which came into effect on November 15, kicked their un-jabbed employees, religious leaders, volunteers and officers to the curb, including some who were unable to get the shot due to sincerely held religious reasons and matters of consent.
The fact that the non-profit, Christian organization would choose to participate in medical apartheid that is marginalizing and oppressing thousands of Canadians was shocking to many, including the over 6,000 people, who have signed our petition to ask them to do the humane thing and honour exemptions.
That’s also why we at Rebel News partnered with The Democracy Fund to hire an amazing litigator named Leighton Grey, to fight to defend the God-given rights of Salvation Army workers at no cost to them.
Grey crafted and sent a fiercely written cease and desist letter to Salvation Army Canada, that addresses “several concerns arising from coercion by the Salvation Army of employees to submit to experimental drug therapies” and states that their policy, which puts people out of work without pay or severance due to their vaccination status, “violates their human rights and constitutes wrongful dismissal.”
You can read the letter for yourself right here:
This Christian church's jab or no pay policy isn’t the only thing discouraging many of its donors lately. The company has also recently made headlines after Salvation Army USA released a critical race theory riddled resource that left many wondering if the organization believes white people are inherently racist and thus need to apologize for the skin God gave them.
We also reached out to Salvation Army Canada for comment on their vaccination policy, and this is what they had to say:
The Salvation Army continues to follow all provincial and federal public health policies and guidelines as it relates to COVID-19.
As of November 15, 2021, all Salvation Army staff (employees, officers, volunteers) providing on-site and in-person services will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We will consider reasonable accommodations for individuals who are not in a position to be vaccinated due to medical reasons or other protected ground under human rights legislation.
The Salvation Army is also monitoring for any changes to public health guidelines across Canada so that we can make the necessary updates to our policies and practices. Proof of vaccination is required at Salvation Army facilities where provincially mandated and we continue to follow stringent health and safety protocols, including mask wearing, proper physical distancing, and enhanced sanitation practices, regardless of the province’s specific health and safety requirements. Our number one priority remains the health, safety and well-being of our employees, officers, volunteers, guests, donors, and communities.
