Effective January 17, the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) will require everyone above the age of five and up who is working, staying or visiting their facilities to show proof of vaccination.

Though there is a two-week grace period for families who already reside in the Ronald McDonald House to get their first dose, this mandate is completely disgusting.

But don’t take my word for it, you can read the full policy for yourself right here:

So, in response, I am launching a petition to have this discriminatory policy reversed.

If you agree that families should be allowed to stay at the Ronald McDonald House regardless of their vaccination status, please sign the petition on this page.

You can also send an email directly to the RMHC Canadian CEO, Cathy Loblaw, the executive director, Kate Horton, as well as RMHC's national and B.C. bureaus, demanding they reverse this policy by clicking right here.

These families are under enough emotional, mental, and financial strain without the added stress of being forced to choose between their child's livelihood and taking an experimental vaccine.
