A Hospital Visit During A “Pandemic”

My youngest son recently split his head open. He’s not shy about telling you, or showing you the scar he now wears like a badge of honour. It’s a symbol of his bravery and toughness in the face of metal benches everywhere, for that is how he split his head open – he lost a fight with a metal bench.

“The Forgotten” are the solution to our failing Healthcare Crisis

Remember November 30, 2021: D-Day for people to get their vaccine or be put on unpaid leave? Yup. Those dirty healthcare workers, aka The Forgotten, that didn’t comply. Even the physician that holds patents for the technology required to make “the cure” is one of the biggest proponents against mandates.

How have I been? Well…

How have I been? Well…
I suppose it starts with the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa. It was an emotional few weeks, and it culminated in a violent quelling of a peaceful protest, which was perfectly in line with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Section 2(c) (the fundamental freedom of peaceful assembly).

All motions were granted by the court; a much desired outcome for CANS and its members: “The Applicant, Citizens’ Alliance of Nova Scotia (CANS), comes before this court seeking to engage the Judiciary to perform a vital and rigorous ‘check’ among the ‘checks and balances’ integral to Canada’s constitutional democracy. The Applicant is asking the Judicial branch of government to take a critical look at decisions and actions taken by the Executive branch of government to determine if they are reasonable and lawful”

Where Has our Democracy Gone?

On January 24th a concerned Nova Scotian sent an email to roughly 100 MLAs and media affiliates calling for a debate in the legislature on the measures our provincial government has undertaken since the start of the COVID pandemic. Simply put, the email asks for a return to democracy.

Support our causes

Funding Archive

On September 02, it was stated that a vaccination pass was under consideration. Mandating such would violate Canadian professional ethics standards and human and constitutional rights and freedoms to name just a few.

In collaboration with Leigh Baker, CANS is helping to support the work going into creating a Position Letter for immediate delivery to key decision-makers in the province. The letter has been written by an experienced Nova Scotia constitutional lawyer and will clearly define all the violations possible should a “Pass” mandate attempt to be implemented provincially.

Please consider supporting this very important cause as we continue on our collective journey to ensure the preservation of our rights and freedoms.
