Aviation and healthcare workers challenge Feds in court over vaccine status

Syd Fizzard is joined by lawyer Umar Sheikh for a discussion on two cases he's working on: fighting for the rights of a group of aviation professionals and for a group of B.C. healthcare workers who were terminated because of their COVID vaccination status.

Across Canada, those not ‘fully up to date’ with their COVID shots continue to face the aftermath of political lockdowns and vaccine mandates.

Sheila Annette Lewis was denied a life-saving organ transplant during the pandemic because of her vaccine status. Alberta Health Services (AHS) doctors denied her, but thanks to legal efforts from Umar Sheikh of Sheikh Law she was able to come to a satisfactory deal with AHS and the doctors involved.

Although the details are confidential, we do know that AHS came to terms with Sheila. To find out more about this story, go to OrgansNotCoercion.ca.

We spoke to Umar recently to discuss this case, and we took the opportunity to get an update on two other legal actions his firm is taking on, fighting for the rights of unvaccinated Canadians.

First, we discussed the Free2Fly case, wherein a group of aviation professionals who were let go because of their vaccination status are taking the federal government to court over their wrongful dismissal. 

Second, we talked about Sheikh Law’s battle for B.C. healthcare workers terminated over their vaccine status. Their termination has left many questions and continues to damage the provinces' delivery of urgent medical care. 


Editor's note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that the vaccine mandate for British Columbia health professionals had been lifted.
